The interior design invoice is to charge a client for offering consultation on decorating their property. A designer may be paid either by the hour ($/hr), per project, per square foot ($/SF), or a commission on the total cost of goods for the project. Most designers with experience will usually charge a retainer to get them started for a certain amount of hours. This guarantees the designer that the client is committed to the project’s completion. After all interior work is complete, the designer will issue the invoice to their client which is usually due immediately upon receipt with late fee penalties usually coming into effect after 15 or 30 days.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (Source) – On average, in the USA, an interior designer gets paid $24.76 per hour.

2 – The Interior Design Company’s Business Information Must Be Shown At The Top Of This Page
The Interior Design Business sending this Invoice should make sure its Recipient has all the information required to make a payment or contact. Such details are usually placed prominently at the top of the page. Therefore, the top left-hand corner is composed of several fields the user must satisfy. First, delete the words “Company Name” then replace them with the Name of the Interior Design Business. Now, we will give the Recipient the information required for a mailing label. Use the blank lines marked “Name,” “Street Address,” “City, State, Country,” and “Zip Code” to give the Client the Interior Design Business’ Contact Information. It should be noted the “Name” field refers to the Name of the Interior Designer or the Company Employee sending this Invoice. Now, as a courtesy to the Interior Design Client, document this Business’ Daytime Telephone Number and E-Mail Address.
3 – Make Sure This Invoice Is Readily Identifiable
In most cases, being able to refer and locate an Invoice is imperative to a Business’ ability to operate. As a result, we will deliver the Invoice Number associated with this transaction and the Invoice Date to the Client using this document. A shaded bar containing the lines “Invoice #” and “Date” should used to deliver such information.
4 – Directly Address The Interior Design Client
The Address section has been placed in this document, so the Interior Design Client can be named as the entity owing the money. For this reason the “Bill To” section must be satisfied. Here, report the Legal Name and Official Mailing/Billing Address of the Interior Design Client. This Address will be where this document is sent. Some Customers may have an additional Address where freight or shipments are received. Typically, this can be a loading dock or a separate entrance. If this is the case, then record the Name And Address associated with the Interior Design Client’s Shipping Address.
5 – Give A Report On The Charged Amounts
We will also need to tend to at least one of the two tables on this page. These areas have been formatted so that you may summarize the amount the Client owes to the Interior Design Business for the “Products” and/Or “Labor” supplied.
The first of these tables, “Products,” consists of four labeled columns: “Description,” “Quantity,” “Unit Cost,” and “Amount.” We will use these columns to recount the Merchandise/Supplies the Interior Design Client has ordered (under “Description”), the number of each item ordered by the Client (in “Quantity”), and to inform the Client how much one of each piece ordered costs (under “Unit Cost”). This information should be available through your records. The final “Amount” the Interior Design Business will charge for the purchased Merchandise/Supplies must be calculated (multiply the “Quantity” by the “Unit Cost”) then show this result on the same row. A sum of all “Products” the Interior Design Client ordered must appear in “Total Products.” Add all the numbers in the “Amount” column to present this figure. If the Interior Design Business had to perform any “Labor” it intends to bill this Client for, this should also be itemized. The second table presented on this page will need a summarized “Description” of such Labor detailed its first column. The “Hours” and pay rate the Interior Design Client is responsible to pay will need to be clearly shown in the second column and the “Hourly Rate” column (respectively). Now on each row, multiply the “Hours” with the “Hourly Rate” across each row. Show the result in the “Amount” box on the same row you multiplied these columns on. Make sure each number entered in “Amount” is added to a total figure, then report this figure in “Total Labor.”
6 – Produce The Total Dollar Amount And The Terms Required To Satisfy The Interior Design Client’s Obligation
After supplying this information, we will take a moment to give the Interior Design Client the total dollar amount he or she must pay. This process will begin with summing up the numbers in “Total Products” and “Total Labor” to one figure then putting this result in “Subtotal.” The Interior Design Business may need to charge its Client the Taxes associated with this Invoice. Record such an amount in “Tax.” Any Freight Charges incurred by the Customer for this transaction should be recorded in the “Shipping” box. Finally, add the number in the “Subtotal” box to both the number you entered in the “Tax” box and the “Shipping” box then put the result in “Total.” The number of Days the Interior Design Business allows its Clients to pay a Bill on-time should be established on the blank space between the number sign and the word “…Days” in the statement beginning with the word “Payment.” “Comments Or Special Instructions” the Interior Design Business the Client should receive with this Invoice may be stated on the last two blank lines in this document.

The Invoice Number and the Invoice Date that are used to define the filing information for this document in the Interior Design Business’ records are required items in cells F4 and H4 (respectively). It is generally suggested that each Invoice leaving an office to its Recipient Client be given a unique reference number. This is considered a part of good record-keeping practices.
5 – All Totals Should Be Solidified With This Document’s Terms
The tables marked “Products” and “Labor” have both been pre-formatted for the user’s convenience. Each will produce the total Dollar Value owed by the Interior Design Client as you enter information. The “Products” table will need a “Description,” “Quantity,” and “Unit Cost” for every piece of merchandise or materials the Interior Design Business provided its Client upon order. Once you provide this information to columns A, F, and G in the “Products” table, you may continue to report the billable “Labor” in the next table. If no items have been sold to the Interior Design Client, then skip this area altogether and fill in the next one. The “Labor” table will have also had some clearly labeled columns (A, F, and G). Utilize these columns to record the Name or “Description” of each Interior Design Project worked on, the number of “Hours” the Interior Designer spent working on that project, and the “Hourly Rate” being charged for that Interior Designer. The “Amount” the Interior Design Business’ Client must pay will immediately populate the last column using the figures you enter in “Hours” and “Hourly Rate.”The three cells near the bottom of the H column will list the “Subtotal” and “Total” of this Invoice automatically, however, you will need to report the Taxes owed by the Interior Design Business’ Client for this transaction in Cell H35 and the Freight Charges in H36. Cell A37 has been supplied so that you can give the Interior Designer Customer a grace period (in Days) to make an online payment. Record the number of Days constituting such a grace period (starting with the Client receipt date. Cell A38 is reserved purely as a convenience.
