How to Start an Interior Decorating or Design Business

 

And as we mentioned above, we have four videos to help you start your own decorating and designing business as well, which are embedded below with the full transcriptions…

Hello, and welcome. It’s my pleasure to bring you to a four-part series on how to start an interior decorating business focused on residential design with the expertise of Decorating Den Interiors.

In part one of the series, we’ll focus on getting the training you need to run a successful business. There are lots of educational options to learn about interior decorating and design, but most schools focus on design principles and theory, offering very little of the practical side of running a design business. How do I find clients and market my business? Where do I find product knowledge training about furniture and fabrics? Just to name a few. For those who qualify for franchise ownership, our professional training staff at Decorating Den Interiors are able to provide all the areas of knowledge needed to get a business up and running quickly. Our training programs are comprehensive, covering information including design, space planning, and product knowledge. But it doesn’t stop there. To run a successful business, you must also know how to market your business and manage the back-office support. At Decorating Den Interiors, we’re experienced to guide you in every facet of the business, from startup to ongoing business coaching.
