Many fears and misunderstandings are generated by the different way interior designers charge for what appears to be a similar service. An important part of our policy is to offer a no-obligation first meeting that is completely free of charge. You can test the water without any risk and if you decline our services we promise not to hound you.

The following fee structure is for residential clients served. For maximum flexibility we incorporate two breakpoints in our fee structure. This allows you to determine precisely the level of involvement of our company in your project.


Initial Meeting-FREE OF CHARGE.

Subsequent Meetings-PHP 2,000.00.

Design Fee- PHP 5,000.00 per room, including sample board. The design fee covers outsourcing of all fabrics, wall and floor coverings, acquisition of samples and brochures and standard room survey.

3D Drawings- colour rendered drawings of room schemes can be provided at cost, if client requires.

Sourcing of furniture, light fittings and accessories- this is recommended to achieve the full implementation of the designed interior.


Contracts and Planning
- All designs drawings required to detail the project are included in the design fees. Drawing alteration beyond those considered reasonable during the collaborative design process is charged per hour, Photo copies are charged at cost. Preparation and submission of appropriate application for consent to local authority, if required- These are charge per hour. (Please contact us for our rates.)
(From this point---You may choose to implement the design yourself at this stage. The design materials and drawings will facilitate this.)

Building and Decorating Specifications- Once the design is approved the client has the option to commission full building and decorating specifications for each room. These are highly desirable documents used to detail the works required to the contractor for quotation purposes and to guide the activities of the contractor during the project itself. These are charge per square meter. (You may contact us for rates.)
(From this point--- You are fully equipped to find, appoint and manage your own contractor.)

Co-ordination of Contractors- PICAN INTERIOR DEISGNS offer Project Management or may act as your Contractor to achieve the full implementation of the design. We can however recommend a qualified Project Manager who can organise tenders and oversee the works on site.
