1. What is the difference between an Interior Designer and an Interior Decorator?

The professional interior designer is qualified by education, experience and examination to enhance the function, safety and quality of interior spaces.  Interior design combines knowledge of building codes, critical and creative thinking, communication and technology for the purposes of improving the quality of life, increasing productivity, and protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.  The information included in this link is quite helpful http://catalystsdr.com/2010/03/interior-design-as-strategy/ .

2. What is your billing structure?

We typically bill either by the hour or a “Not to exceed” flat fee.  Please contact us to discuss billing options.

3. What does “Registered Interior Designer” mean?

Arkansas is a title act state.  A title act regulates the use of a title, such as “registered interior designer” or “certified interior designer.”  Different states have different titles.  A few title acts grant interior designers permitting privileges that enable them to submit their drawings to building departments for permits.
