Online Interior Design - The Secret to Scoring Interior Design Services For Cheap

MARCH 2, 2017

By Lisette Mejia, POPSUGAR

How great would life be if everyone had an interior designer as a best friend? You'd trust her taste and, of course, get her services for cheaper than the average rate. The bad news is that may never happen, but the great news is we've found the next best thing: sites that serve as virtual decorators. Ahead, check out five interior design services that offer advice, product suggestions, and more insights for those of us on a budget. You'll want to tell all your (nondesigner) friends about them ASAP.

1. Decorist

Whether you just need help picking out the right rug or you want to completely make over a bedroom, Decorist makes the process easier. Experienced designers are on hand to answer simple questions for free or through a paid package. For $299, for example, you get a Classic Makeover, which includes two design boards with shopping lists and recommendations based off a questionnaire and any photos you send in. For more information on our online interior design process, see How It Works.

2. Decorator in a Box

Decorator in a Box is just what it sounds like. Started by an interior designer, the company offers services based on need or room type and sends you a box filled with items to help you get the look you want. For instance, for $50 you get paint color selections based on your preferences; for $550, you receive a box for the bedroom that comes with a note from the designer, instructions on how to begin the design process, a color reference board, a design book with a hand-drawn space plan, and a detailed shopping list for your space plan. Anything missing?


3. BluGloss

BluGloss is uncomplicated, and we mean that in a good way. All you do is browse existing photos of styled rooms (you can search by filters like celebrity bedrooms and designer-styled living rooms), select which one you like best, and then automatically shop curated products that match the room's decor. It's like magic in three clicks of the mouse.


4. Havenly

Once you meet the interior design team behind Havenly, you'll know that you're in good hands. First you describe your place, your taste, and your budget; then the decorators put together design proposals, renderings, and product suggestions from major retailers and exclusive brands. After that, someone purchases the products and coordinates delivery for you — all for a flat service fee of $199. Steal!


5. Homepolish

What's unique about Homepolish is that your decorating journey starts online, but the company offers in-home visits and consultations for $50. While their in-home design services are available for 15 cities, their virtual design services make it possible for anyone to reap the benefits. You can purchase a single day session which includes three hours of consulting or a 10-hour design package starting at $130/hr.
