Design Fees

FLAT FEES

We propose a flat fee structure most often for our projects. Flat fees help to take the guesswork out of the total cost for our design services and give our clients peace of mind. Projects are quoted after our initial Design Consultation where we can assess the scope of work, unless a specific design service package is purchased. 


Your custom design proposal is detailed with the project scope, timeline and logistics. Flat fee or percentage-based fees are estimated for design, plans, selections, and collaboration with trades and contractors/builders as needed.


For remodeling design work, please take in to account that design fees would be between 4 -8% of the overall construction cost (not including design services). There may be areas requiring much more detail, and areas where there is less design work required. These projects typically do not contain product sales.


Please note: My minimum project design fee is $2,500 for any sized project, with the exception of specific design service packages and one-time consultations.

HOURLY RATE

Occasionally, we work on an hourly rate, which would typically be for additional services added to the original contract.


All hours or partial hours working on and/or for your project will be considered billable design time including commuting time, phone calls, messages, and emails.


Out of state project travel requirements and accommodation fees are quoted per project.

PURCHASING THROUGH MY STUDIO

Where applicable, we expect full-service clients to purchase their furnishings through Carla Bast Design. Your cost of product includes our procurement fee, shipping, delivery, and tax.

Design and consultation services are available in-person and virtually. Whether you’re located just outside of the Minneapolis, St. Paul Metro area or across the country, we can still create a beautiful space with you via video conferencing, our online studio/client portal, document sharing, and of course—on-site visits.
