What are the costs to furnish a Dallas TX luxury home

There are many variables.  Homes are all different sizes.  There are large homes and small homes.  There are homes with lots of details and homes that are minimalist.  Your budget and the scope of the project will help determine the cost of the project.

The client needs to provide specific details about their budget and exactly what type of service they are looking for. Dallas interior designers will not be able to give a price without first knowing the budget and scope of the project. 

Always remember that professional interior designers are experts at what they do.

They have education, training, and experience and should be fairly compensated. They are talented and can visualize the finished room plus they can get the products and furniture that are perfect for your home. 

Hourly fees are simply charged by the hour but they include all meetings, phone calls, emails, shopping, ordering, designing and drafting, buying installations, and logistics. These fees are usually between 75 and 250 dollars per hour.

A flat fee is a single price that may be broken up into payments for the project.  There is usually a deposit at the beginning and then further payments are made as time and the project progresses.  These are usually for design fees such as drawing up floor plans, designing cabinets, fireplace mantles, bookcases, or even entertainment centers.

A consultation fee is an hourly or flat fee to provide consultation services to the client. This is a good fee structure for the Do-it-yourselfers.

How much does it cost to furnish a living room?

A completely furnished great room can be $16,000 or $35,000 or more, depending on what the client wants.  The budget is always in the client’s control and should be discussed at the very first meeting.  Remember, good designers, are trying to provide the right services for the client’s needs and also want to stick to an agreed-upon budget.

We use 3D renderings to help our client furnish their luxury homes. I did the above rendering to show how the room would layout.

A lot depends on what is needed to decorate the room.  Do you need window treatments?  What about carpet or rugs for the room?  Do you need artwork or accessories?  And of course, the biggest cost is in the furnishings that will be needed in the room.

As you can see, “What will this cost me?” is not an easy question to answer.  The actual question should be “How do your bill for your services?”

The budget is a very important part of the design process.  You know what you want and how much you want to spend. A professional interior designer will know how much your project will cost based on the information they have gathered from you. Together you and your designer can come up with a budget.  A professional interior designer will not be able to do a good job for you without knowing the budget and scope of the project.

It all comes down to what you want

Do you want a designer to create a vision, a design plan and then provide the furnishings?  

Do you want a full-scale, turn-key project where you only want to speak with the designer and then they will deal with all other parties involved?

On the other hand, you might want to repurpose some of your existing furniture. The photo below shows how we updated the client’s master bedroom while still using their night’s stands. We also recovered their chaise in lighter luxury fabric. Then we added a new bed, bench, rug, and bedspread.
