Why interior designers should send professional invoices

Illustration of invoice being sent

You have the technical knowledge, design flair, and attention to detail needed to create magnificent interior spaces for your clients.

You need a truly flexible invoice that clearly outlines the research, consulting, and expertise you put into each individual project, as well as all the required supplies, labor, furniture, and accessories to be charged to the client.

On top of that, your invoice should be as beautiful as the interior design you provide. Every touch point with the client is a chance to reinforce your design aesthetic, and add to your stellar reputation.

How to fill out your interior design invoice

Once you've downloaded your free invoice template, you'll need to customize it to fit your specific business. Here are the 10 key things to include on your invoice:

  1. Title and Description: Name the project and briefly describe what type of work your client is being invoiced for.
  2. Company Details: Add your company name, address, phone number, and logo to the top-right corner.
  3. Customer Details: Under "Bill To", add your customer's name, address, and contact information.
  4. Invoice Number: Include a unique invoice number to help you track down this invoice in the future. You can format this based on sequence and customer. For example, if you're sending your very first customer their first invoice,  the invoice number could be 001-001.
  5. Dates: Include the date when your invoice has been issued and the date when payment is due.
  6. Line Item: Add individual line items for each unique good or service you provided. For each line item, include a brief description, quantity, individual unit price, and total price.
  7. Subtotal: Add up the subtotal of your goods or services, before tax has been applied.
  8. Tax: Indicate the tax rate applied to the subtotal. This is legally required to provide on invoices, and your rate may differ depending on where you run your business.
  9. Total: Outline the total amount due from the customer, after tax.
  10. Notes: Include any additional info your customer should know, including terms of service and payment terms (for example, payments are due 30 days after the invoice has been issued).

When is the right time to send an invoice to your interior design customers?

For a small job or design consultation, you may decide to invoice upon completion, but most of your work usually spans a longer period of time and involves other craftspeople and service providers.

Many interior designers ask for a percentage of the cost up front, with the remainder when the project is finished. Whatever payment method you choose, make sure it’s clearly noted on each invoice, and clarify what portion of the final ‘cost’ has been paid to date.

To make sure there is no misunderstanding about the scope of your services, you can send your customer an estimate or a proforma invoice before you start work.
