Interior Design Industry Poised For Rebound During 2014

DENVER, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Design Success University's 2014 Interior Design Fee & Salary Survey revealed that interior designers expect the industry to grow during the next twelve months. The free eBook is available for immediate download.

Yet, the median income for interior designers was $40,000 in 2013 which was 20% below the US Median Income. In spite of the dismal earnings of interior designers, DSU's Chief Vision Officer, Gail Doby, ASID, said that designers are optimistic about 2014, but they are still dissatisfied with their results. 

  • 92.9% enjoy the work of being an interior designer.
  • 80.3% enjoy the work of being a business owner.
  • 67.8% are satisfied with their level of success which is up significantly from 20% in 2012.
  • 38.6% want more time off in 2014.
  • 58.3% are dissatisfied with their income – for good reason.

New data revealed in the 2014 Interior Design Fee & Salary Survey eBook shows 10 key strategies that celebrity and high-earning designers use to market their businesses, achieve success and earn six figure incomes. That's why the new survey eBook filled with strategies to improve business results is so unique.

Gail Doby, Co-founder of Design Success University said, "56.5% of interior designers earned less than $45,000. Discovering new strategies that financially successful designers use to earn six-figure+ incomes can transform how other designers approach their businesses to achieve higher incomes and more satisfaction with their careers. Interior designers can 'peek behind the curtain' to discover the reasons why celebrity and high-earning designers have been so successful.  This book is the first step a designer should take to change their results – and it is free."

Hundreds of designers from 31 countries participated in the survey.  Download a copy of the 2013 Interior Design Fee & Salary Survey eBook now.

"Is there a more important and relevant resource for interior design professionals than Design Success University's 2014 Fee and Salary E-book? Not that I know of. This is absolutely, positively the best information available on what designers earn and charge. I can't recommend it highly enough," said Fred Berns, Business by Design.

"It is absolutely something every designer in this industry should read! As a principal interior designer, it is imperative to navigate your business successfully. This becomes especially challenging when the business environment is changing. Understanding emerging client needs and expectations as well as what is working and not working for other design firms is pivotal to making advantageous decisions for your firm. Design Success University continues year after year to provide Interior Designers with one of the most valuable eBooks in our industry, the Interior Design Fee and Salary Survey," said Debbie Green, President, Minutes Matter Solutions, Inc.

"Design Success University's annual survey eBooks have proven to be a necessary reference tool for designers who have strong business goals and are eager to capture their share of the business of design. As an affiliate for several years now, I can report "first hand" the growing popularity and demand for DSU's dedicated coaching skills and their genuine concern for designers' success. You're connected to a winning team when you connect with Design Success University," said Alice Krueser-Lowe, Founder, Art & Design Matters.

"Thank you Gail for your wonderful Designer Survey book for 2014. I have written down 3 pages of notes of activities I want to start doing for my business this year. It's a wonderful resource," said Tawna Allred, Interior Designer.
