What Services Do Home Decorators Provide?
Home decorators help homeowners select furniture, room accessories, lighting, paint colors, flooring, wallpaper, curtains, etc. Decorators often have relationships with local wholesalers so you can get the best price on the items you purchase. Home decorators typically do not suggest structural changes to your home (such as moving walls).

How Much Do Interior Decorators Cost?
Some decorators work by the hour, while others work on a fixed fee basis. Traditionally, decorators work on a cost plus basis. This means that whatever is purchased to complete the project (furniture, curtains, rugs, carpets, wallpaper, etc.) the decorator is paid a percentage (15-20%) of that cost. For instance, if the wholesale purchases amount to $10,000 then the decorator would mark that up 15-20% to accomodate for their fee. Decorators will also work on a fixed fee basis which means they will tell you exactly how much their fees will be (for example: $800). Additional costs for purchases and installation would then be added on top of that.
