Interior Design Proposal Template FAQ

What is an interior design proposal template?

An interior design proposal template is a preformatted document that is ready to develop into a complete proposal. It contains sections about your business, your offer, and the reasons you are the best choice. You can complete the template by adding specific information about the project you would like to bid for.

Why should I create an interior design proposal template?

An interior design proposal template will save you time and ensure your documents have a consistent look and feel. When you are ready to develop a proposal for a new event, a preformatted proposal will save you time spent adding information you use repeatedly. Developing a template also means your documents will always include your logo, branding, and company colors.

How do I write an interior design proposal template?

Creating a template is a simple process. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Launch your preferred editor, such as MS Word, Google Docs, or another choice.
  2. Add your company information and branding.
  3. Insert as many blank sections as you need, leaving space for data entry later.
  4. Make your template attractive with nice visual elements.
  5. Save your work as a template file or a generic file you can use again.


What should be in an interior design proposal template?

Every proposal should have some common sections, including these:

  • Company logo, branding, and contact information
  • Project overview
  • Scope of work
  • Timeline
  • Services or product breakdown with quantities and prices
  • Total project cost
  • Terms and conditions

Interior design proposals also need to include the format you will deliver the work in, a plan for edits and revisions, and a statement about use of your work for portfolio building.

Besides these, you can include a cover letter, customer references, and a page about your company or services.

Absolutely! You can use our interior design proposal template to jumpstart your proposal creation process.

Introduction

Say hello to your potential client. This is a great space to mention how you engaged with the client, what you understand about their plans, and any other information you know about this project. The main goal of your proposal is to make a connection with the client about your services.

Thank you for contacting me. I put this proposal together based on our conversations. 

Here are a few quick observations:

  • {CLIENT NAME} wants to refresh the interior design for the hair studio and aesthetician academy.
  • {YOUR NAME} will perform a few site visits for measurements and viewings.
  • A full design plan will be drafted in 3D software for your to review and approve. Once the design has been approved, a full material and furniture purchase list will be generated.
  • The final stage is the delivery of a plan for implementing the design. I am pleased to implement the design or refer you to trusted contractors who can supply quotes.

As you continue through this proposal, you will see how my freelance services can help you meet your design goals and your deadlines.


Why {YOUR NAME} for interior design services?

Every freelancer needs to show off sometimes. Use this space in your proposal to talk about your past work and competitive advantages. You could include pictures, links, and customer quotes to build up some proof about your skills.

My work enables companies like yours to reinforce their brands through pleasing and effective interior design. Using the right materials, colors, and layouts makes your space better for your customers and employees alike.

Here are some testimonials from previous clients:

  • {YOUR NAME} was great to work with. They quickly identified the look we wanted and delivered an excellent design. Previewing the design in 3D software was a real game changer for us. -Jill, Local Restaurant Owner
  • {YOUR NAME} is a brilliant professional. They completely redesigned the foyer and welcome center for our community center. All the feedback we received has been full of praise for the new design. -Tim, Chairman of Local Community Center

My clients value my professionalism, commitment to deadlines, and the results I give them.


Project description

You introduced yourself to the client. Now, it’s time to show them you understand what they need and can deliver it for them. Write a paragraph or two in your proposal about the services they need and how you can deliver them.

Based on your information, {CLIENT NAME} wants to redesign the hair and beauty salon and academy to create a more contemporary, relaxed atmosphere for customers, students, and employees. There is a natural lull in business during August, so the design should be in place prior to the 3rd week of July to allow contractors to begin working at the beginning of August.

Interior design for business premises is my specialty. Many local businesses have used my services to revamp their layout, materials, and furniture. The results have always been praised and appreciated.


Objectives

In this section, you can be even more specific about your services. Your proposal can include specific targets to be met, software and equipment to be used, and reporting structure can be included. Cost and deadlines will be covered later.

Here is the plan for how my interior design services will meet your goals. Let me break down the specific targets and how they will be met.

  • The first phase is a site visit or two. During the visit, I’ll take measurements of all the dimensions and we can discuss your design goals, budget, and available pieces.
  • Following the site visit, I’ll prepare an initial design brief for you to review. This brief will be a simple overview, in broad strokes, of what we hope to accomplish with the design.
  • Once you approve the brief, I’ll create a new design for you in 3D modeling software. You’ll be able to review the design as if you were walking into your premises.
  • Once the design has been approved, a purchase list of materials and furnishings will be produced. 
  • I’ll also deliver a quote for installing the design myself. You can use this as a comparison for other quotes if you choose.

Any adjustments to the plans can be made by sending me a message via the Slack channel or by email at {YOUR EMAIL}.


Deadline and deliverables

You should commit yourself to reasonable deadlines. Be sure to allow plenty of time for the work to be completed. Specific delivery formats can be highlighted in the proposal if this is relevant to the project.

I am committed to meeting your deadlines and delivering quality business work on schedule. Here are the milestones for this project:

  • Site visit and kick-off meeting
  • Design brief provided in PDF
  • 3D Modeling preview viewable on my website’s client portal area
  • Purchasing list provided in PDF
  • Should you choose to use my installation services, your project will be managed beginning to end. This phase includes any painting, wallpapering, flooring installation, and decoration. Subcontractors will be managed to save time wherever possible.

My services have a reputation for organization, follow through, and prompt delivery. I take pride in this reputation and look forward to delivering exceptional results for {CLIENT NAME}.


Payment terms

Structuring your payments is important for your cash flow and the client’s clarity. List specific payments and dates in your proposal to avoid any confusion. You should also include details about any extra work or extra charges for your services.

Projects such as this one run for several months before they finish. To facilitate these projects, I offer a schedule of payments. Here are the payment milestones:

  • 25% initial payment due upon signing the contract and before any work begins. 
  • A further 25% of the total will be invoiced once the initial design brief has been approved.
  • The next 25% of the total will be due once the 3D design has been delivered and accepted.
  • Payment of the remaining 25% will be due within two weeks of the final design approval, or used as a deposit for the installation services.

Electronic invoices will be sent once the contract has been signed and milestones passed. Each invoice is payable within 10 business days of receipt. Late payments may result in suspension of work and/or late fees as specified in the contract.


Agreement

Once you agree to this proposal, I will prepare a simple contract for this project. The contract will reference the terms of this proposal, including any amendments you suggest. If you agree to these terms, please sign below, and return this proposal to me.


Thank you very much. I look forward to working with you.
