Archambault Interiors gives two options for a choice of payment: Fixed fee or Hourly fee.
FIXED FEE (OR FLAT FEE) -- THE DESIGNER IDENTIFIES A SPECIFIC SUM TO COVER COSTS, EXCLUSIVE OF REIMBURSEMENT FOR EXPENSES. ONE TOTAL FEE APPLIES TO THE COMPLETE SCOPE OF SERVICES PROPOSED, FROM CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT THROUGH LAYOUTS, SPECIFICATIONS AND FINAL INSTALLATION.
HOURLY FEE -- COMPENSATION IS BASED ON ACTUAL TIME THAT THE DESIGNER CONSULTS ON A PROJECT OR SPECIFIC SERVICES. THE HOURLY FEE IS THE MOST COMMON WAY CLIENTS CHOOSE TO PAY. BUT OF COURSE, WHAT EVER CHOICE OF PAYMENT IS BEST SUITED FOR YOU, DO CHOICE ACCORDINGLY.
Billable hours are composed of design work, meetings, shopping trips, sketches, construction drawings, AutoCad drawings, phone calls/ emails, etc... Other traveling costs when working with the principle designer will charge per hour of drive time. Projects within in the Covington area voids all billable hours for traveling. The client will be billed on the 15th of every month with a Cost Account Form for their convenience. All forms of payment are acceptable through phone, mail or in person. Any late payments will be charged a $25 late fee.
One-time consultations can be accommodated fairly easily, and are truly welcomed! I charge $400 for a consultation in your home and it is payable at the visit. I find that 1 ½ hours for a one time consult works best. After these consultations, we choose two different approaches to your space and send you suggestions and links to places we feel fit your style and needs. I will choose basic furnishing for your room(s) and you handle all the processing and ordering on your own. Because time is finite, we cannot take on every project that's presented to us. If we cannot take on your project, or I feel another designer could better handle your situation, I have many talented designer friends I can refer. The one-time consultation fees are only subjected 3-room projects or homes of 1,500 square feet maximum. Any home larger than this footprint will have different pricing strategies.
