10 STEPS TO LAUNCH YOUR INTERIOR DESIGN BUSINESS

Starting an interior design business is tough. It’s a saturated market and it’s hard to stand out. Here are ten ways that you can launch your business and cut through the rest out there to develop a strong client base!

Every year I see lots of people start Interior design businesses and then start to get incredibly downhearted because it’s a hell of a lot harder than people think. Shows like the Great Interior Design challenge bring everyone with a passion for interiors out of the woodwork and whilst I absolutely LOVE to see people diving in to their passion it’s good to be knowledgable about how to launch successfully.

PIN FOR LATER!

Yes, you might have a great eye for design but it’s not called a BUSINESS for nothing. There is a huge difference between being able to make your own home look great and then starting a successful interior design business.

Want to know how to do it? Read on.

1. Build a super slick website

No-one is going to take you seriously as a designer if you can’t even create a website that is extra special. Clients are looking for you to prove to them that you are forward thinking with your design approach and this needs to be reflected across the board, from your website to your outfit and so on. It’s worth investing in this area heavily as you start up your interior design business.

Take time to find a great web designer or learn as much as you can about creating a great site yourself. If you’re going the DIY route I really recommend you check out Squarespace. I have built this site on it myself and it’s super easy to use. It’s great for portfolio type sites and it has templates that already look great but you can customise to fit your own branding. It’s a one time monthly fee that includes hosting so you don’t need to pay for that separately. Also there are slightly higher priced options that include getting your URL (domain name) and G suite from google which means you get an email linked to your website too.

2. Do some initial projects for free

You won’t get anywhere if you launch a business without images to show off your projects (more on that in a sec). But of course that means you need some projects actually completed in the first place! Find 1-3 new clients that are willing to let you work your magic on something and waive your design fee on the basis that you can have full creative control. I mean, no interior design project is ever FULL creative control because at the end of the day you are designing for real people but try and find the perfect client who will be up for your expressing your style.

3. Have stunning photography

Your design work is going to live and die by its photography. You can’t launch as an interior designer if you don’t have any photography to show off your projects, is as simple as that.

Don’t rely on shooting it yourself unless you’re extremely confident in this area. Hire a proper interiors photographer to photograph finished projects. They will know all of the ‘on trend’ angles to shoot it magazine style, and they will be able to light it and edit the photos to make your work look the absolute best it can. Again this is an area seriously worth investing in.

Make sure to tell your photographer what you will be using the photos for and they can ensure you get the right crop and size of image. For instance, the way you shoot a design project for web would be different to a magazine for instance (size and shape wise).

Here are a few interiors photographers I recommend and/or have worked with myself!

4. Know what you are

Are you an interior architect? An interior designer? Or perhaps an interior decorator? There are big differences between the three and you need to communicate very clearly what clients should expect from working with you. That way you won’t end up attracting clients who want you to fully redesign the layout of their home when you just want to work on the decor side of things.

Here’s a little video I made a while back that explains the difference between and interior designer and an interior decorator.

The terms still get messed up a lot here in the UK so please make sure you know which you are. And don’t even get me started on the whole interior stylist thing. The amount of emails I get asking about tips to become an interior stylist (stylists style photoshoots and film for brands) when what they actually want to do is be an interior decorator (and work predominantly decorating people’s homes).

5. Know your ideal client

You have to have an absolute clear cut vision of who your ideal client is. Without this you will NOT be able to communicate that you are the right person for the job and cut through all the middle of the road wishy washy interior designers out there that don’t know their own style OR who their ideal client is. Perhaps you will focus on wealthy families in an affluent area. Perhaps your forte is working with cool newly rich creatives in edgy up and coming areas.

Of course you need to know your own brand values and style in order to go about attracting those ideal clients. If you don’t know this or you’re not sure then you have a LOT more work to do before you go out there and launch your business.

I recommend the book ‘How to Build a brand in 30 days’ for a quick realisation of what you’re about. This is the biggest problem across the board of not only interior designers but EVERYONE! The amount of people I coach who have no idea what their brand is. All that does is set you up for a dodgy foundation that will fall apart in the future. Your marketing efforts will be poor and a waste of money.

If you know your brand and your ideal client then fully brand yourself visually in a way that will attract those people. Think niche and find your speciality. Don’t think ‘oh but what about my friends mum who said she wanted an interior designer’. NO. She is not your ideal client and you’ll just end up with headache and a project that you can’t shoot because it’s not a good representation of your style. Trust me, I’ve been there. Stick to your guns people.

6. Don’t create a business that isn’t sustainable

Please understand that wanting to start an interior design business for those who want ‘interior design on a budget’ is not going to happen. Those people won’t have the money to make it worth your while and you will spend a long time trying to create a design business that won’t work.

Because finding furniture and finishes that look great on budget takes so much time that even though you might be able to work within their budget you will not be factoring in your time being paid for and that my friends, means you are working for free and therefore do not have a business.

You may be able to do it for a year or so but you’ll soon realise it’s not sustainable. You will start attracting clients who come to you with a budget of £500-1k per room and expect miracles. Trust me I’ve been there and done that and let me tell you it’s not worth it and you need to tell them to jog on mate.

If you want to work with that demographic then think about starting a blog or a creative youtube channel where you can share your style and give your audience easy ways they can create it themselves. Ain’t no shame in that game (I should know!)
