One of the most important aspects that drive a project is the budget. Our designers can work within any budget to fulfill the client’s wishes, and a clear understanding of the budget saves money in the end. Defining the budget eliminates confusions and allows us to hand select where to shop for furniture, materials and labor.
While knowing the budget is important, likewise is understanding the size of the project. For large design projects and remodels, the Jigsaw Designers may specify a percentage of the total project cost as compensation. This is a typical fee structure in the case of the Designer overseeing a build-out or remodel. For example, a designer may charge 10-15 percent fee on overall project expenses. This structure ensures that the Designer will receive appropriate payment based on the size of the job and that additional costs are covered if the scope of the project changes.
We understand that every project is unique and the client may prefer to work with a fixed fee structure. In this case, a budget must be provided by the client upfront and a clear number of hours spent shopping, meeting, scheduling and managing contractors, etc. must be established upfront to ensure a smooth experience that we strive to provide . Upon agreement one-third of this amount must be paid at the initiation of the engagement with an outline on how the other two-thirds will be paid throughout the project. All additional labor and cost of goods will be billed separately with payment expected as outlined.
1. Design/Decorating Fee – This cost is for time spent planning, shopping, coordinating, designing and decorating. The hourly fee is $125/hour with a request of a ten hour retainer at the initiation of the engagement. After the ten hours, additional time will be billed biweekly (twice a month) with payment due upon receipt of invoice.
2. Additional Labor – Outside contractors hired to help with the work; i.e. Movers, Painters, Wallpaper Installer, etc.. Contract work will be bid out, and hired after client approval. Jigsaw will invoice the client directly for any contractors hired through Jigsaw, and payment is due upon receipt.
3. Cost of Goods – This costs includes, but not limited to, furniture, accessories or lighting fixtures needed etc. It also covers agreed upon extras like paint and wallpaper. There will be a charge for California Sales Tax, Shipping and Delivery Surcharges when applicable. Jigsaw strives to negotiate trade prices and provide clients less than standard retail prices; however, there are no guarantees. In most cases half of total cost is to be collected at time of ordering and final payment due upon installation. However, in certain situations full payment may be requested at time of ordering.
