If you are on a tight budget, it is advisable to hire a junior interior designer who can charge even up to 50% less per hour. Less experience, however, does not necessarily mean a less satisfactory end result. You can also keep costs down by only asking the designer to draw up the remodeling and decorating plans and oversee the rest of the project yourself. Junior interior designer costs range between R150 / hour and R350 / hour with an average of R250 / hour.Get quotes!
