‘I don’t want an interior designer… I just need some design advice’

There are common pre-conceptions that interior designers are for large renovation projects with big budgets or clients with a lot of money.


Firstly, you might find our article helpful – How to find an affordable interior designer – which covers the cost advantages of freelance designers and start-up practices and where to find them.


A one-off design consultation

Did you know that it’s possible to hire an interior designer for a single design meeting?

Many interior designers would be happy to charge for a couple of hours of their time to discuss an aspect of your project where you feel ‘stuck’.

It can be incredibly valuable to get a steer on the big design decisions, leaving you to focus on the smaller ones yourself. For example, you could ask to discuss:

  • layout changes
  • an aesthetic concept or set of ‘design rules’ for you to follow
  • solving a particular challenge e.g storage
  • innovative ideas for small-space living
  • lighting advice
  • how to make a room more functional / more cosy.



Many entrepreneurial interior designers across the UK are offering e-design packages. This can be a fantastic, cost-effective way to get your interior design project started, solve a particular design problem and provide the ideas and inspiration you’re looking for.


Arranging a one-off interior design advice session

Not all interior designers will offer one-off design consultations. It’s also important that the designer quickly understands your aspirations and taste, so it’s a good idea to find an interior designer whose work you love.

At Design for Me, we specialise in matching homeowners with their perfect home design professional. You can put out a request for a one-off design advice session and see who shows interest:

  • quickly see who’s interested in your job
  • create a shortlist 
  • invite up to three for a quotation for your design advice session
  • and this process is completely free!
