Your Own Digital Interior Design Book
Imagine having your own design book that has your selected vision, scanned samples of all your selections, window treatment elevations, custom cabinetry drawings, kitchen and bathroom design, scopes of work and budget with a timeline of approximation of when it all comes together at your finger tips in our digital design book. That is what you get for a flat design fee. Last we offer a white glove delivery service…that means that while all your items are arriving at different times, our warehouse is carefully receiving the packages.

How much does it cost for designing a small space?
At Florida Living Quarters we have always charged a flat rate based on the square footage and no additional hidden design fees. For us it starts at $949 per 300 square feet for a home within 30 miles of the showroom located in Lake Mary. If you are further away don’t fret, we will provide a flat custom rate. 300 square feet is comparable to a small living room and dining room or a family room of an average sized home. This design fee includes 2-3 floor plans per area (including dimensions of the scaled pieces), simulation of the room using our design software, paint samples, scopes of work, cad drawings of custom cabinetry designs, free quotes on custom designs and furnishings, site visit, window treatment renderings using our software. Most recently, a client of ours located in Lake Mary shared with us how “It was the best money they ever spent.”
Who are you hiring?
A decorator, an interior designer, or a retailer? The upfront design fee cost is for the design then you have to add furnishings, labor and delivery installation. What makes Florida Living Quarters unique is that we are all the above. A company with over 10 years of design experience in a retail store. Why is a retail store important?
Because you get the backing of a stocking dealer, they are not purchasing from a local store or at a designer discount (not equivalent to wholesale dealer accounts) What are the perks from buying from a stocking dealer? You get piece of mind warranty from a reputable dealer that are trained on the products you are buying. Having dealer accounts means that you are working with a direct representative of the furnishings, your items come quicker, samples and rep support on any product that the designer will recommend and sell.
Why does Florida Living Quarters charge flat rates by the project?
It’s simple and upfront. We feel confident that once the client designer relationship is established and the design fee is agreed upon there should not be hidden design fees. We hope to win your trust and you’ll feel confident buying from a knowledgeable reputable dealer. Flat rate interior design fees take away the fear of how much hiring a designer will cost.

Owning a home for the first time is a truly exciting milestone for everyone. Whether it is a grand home in a budding new area, or a sweet bungalow in a small town it is a place to call your own to put down some roots. Naturally, new homeowners may have a few questions and doubts about where to go from here. Should I begin a renovation? What will increase my home’s value? How can I add my own personality to this new home? These are all very good questions with no simple, black and white answer. We can discuss several answers to each of these questions to give you, the first time homeowner, a realistic idea of what you can do with your new home.
Should I begin a renovation? A seriously daunting question for existing homeowners. First you need to consider your funds. If you are able to do a renovation, whether big or small, I say go for it. Renovating is a great way to add value to your home and put your own personality into a home. If you bought a fixer-upper, then you already know that you want to renovate. This is a great idea, even if it is your first home. There are lots of benefits to renovating. Improving your home can leave you with a sense of accomplishment and pride that is crucial to have.
What can I do that will increase my home’s value? Another fabulous question. As I mentioned before, a renovation is something you can do that will increase the value of your home by thousands when it is finished. Not a bad idea especially if you don’t plan on making this a forever home and selling it eventually. The kitchen and bathrooms give the most return on investment. As interior designers our opinion is that the kitchen truly is the most used area in a home and represents over 30% of the value of the home.
