When putting together an interior design invoice for your clients, it’s important to consider the form and function of the document.
Initially, you want to make sure the invoice template matches your needs. For instance, if you provide interior design services or consulting on an hourly basis, your template should include a designated space for hourly work. If, on the other hand, you price services on a fixed rate, you want a template with itemized lines for each service and its accompanying cost.
Once you’ve selected an invoice template, you can turn your attention to designing an aesthetically pleasing layout. You can adjust the amount of white space, add an on-brand banner image, and customize the color scheme and font to align with your business aesthetic.
When you get all the invoice design details squared away, you can return to the functionality of the invoice, by plugging in relevant details for you and your client. This includes:
Having created a beautiful (and functional!) interior design invoice, you can send it to your client via your chosen channel. If you’re using HoneyBook, you can simply share it with them via their online client portal and have an email sent automatically, letting them know their invoice is ready to be paid.
The last thing you want to do at the close of a project is spend weeks chasing down client payments. Not only is it incredibly stressful, but it can also be time-consuming. With HoneyBook, you can get paid on-time with minimal effort, by sharing your bill via an online portal and directing HoneyBook to send automatic payment reminders before and after payment is due.
Your clients want interior spaces that are personalized to their taste and lifestyle, but they also crave one-on-one support from you. By creating custom interior design invoices that match your branding, you can provide a more cohesive and intimate experience for your clients, from beginning to end.
While math is a large (and important!) part of interior design work, it gets exhausting when you’re endlessly calculating tax percentages or breaking invoices into installments. Using interior design business software like HoneyBook to create online invoices, you can do all required invoice math with the click of a button.
Whether you’re new to interior design or you’re a seasoned pro with lots of partners and clients, you can’t afford to spend lots of time on administrative tasks like invoicing. By creating and sending your invoices online, you can spend less time designing invoices and more time building relationships and bulking up your portfolio.
