Interior Design Letter of Agreement

Interior design can have a huge impact on the appearance and outlook of your construction, whether it is a residence or a commercial building. While a lot of people (especially women) prefer to redesign their own homes, professional spaces should ideally be dealt with by professional designers.

When people intend to get commercial spaces redesigned, they often tend to contact an interior designing agency or company. In such a case, you will need to assess the current state of your client’s property and recommend a redesign strategy, which often includes numerous tiny details like floor plans, fabric choices, wall coverings, artwork etcetera.

Generally these agencies sign contracts with their customers, and it is always prudent to draw up an agreement letter to list the terms of the agreement before the work commences.

Let us show you how to write an interior design letter of agreement along with providing a sample and a template which you can use for reference.

    Starling Construction.

    Subject: Interior Design Letter of Agreement

    This letter constitutes an agreement between Mr. James Shaw in his capacity as a representative of Starling Construction and Shiny Interior Design Agency.

    The agreement mentions all responsibilities taken up by Shiny Interior Design Agency and all other terms of the agreement between the two parties.

    Shiny Interior Design (SID) will be responsible for providing a complete concept for redesigning the offices of Starling Construction, located at 594 Boulevard Avenue, NJ. The concept will include floor plans, wall coverings, fabric choices, color schemes, furniture recommendations, windows, accessories, art pieces and any other design related element.

    SID will also purchase the recommended items after seeking approval from Starling Construction and will be liable to furnish purchase receipts. However, a flat 20% fee will be charged for all items procured for redesigning.

    Moreover, SID will charge Starling Construction an hourly rate of $200 for providing designing services. After a complete assessment of the property, an estimate billing amount will be generated and starling construction will be liable to pay at least half of it as initial deposit.

    The remaining half will be paid at the completion of the redesigning project. If Starling Construction decides to terminate this agreement before completion, SID will refund the deposit after deducting hourly billing rates and other service charges.

    While SID will be providing an estimated time frame for completion of the redesign, it will not be held liable for any delays caused due to item non-availability, shortage of stock or vendor related issues.

    All concept drawings and plans will remain under the proprietorship of SID, but clients are allowed to use them in reference to the property in question.

    If you agree to these terms, kindly send in a signed copy of this agreement along with a security deposit of $1,000 before work can commence.
