Interior Design vs Interior Styling

Do I need a Stylist or a Designer?


All our stylists are qualified designers, so ask them directly in your free consultation. We've designed our services to be as flexible as possible, which is great if you're not sure what you need or change your mind half way through. The Stylist is our most popular package as it’s a great middle ground - all our basic services are included and you can add on any design or renovation services you need later on in the project. If you’re not sure what to choose or want to talk through your options, clicking ‘ Start your project' to share some basic information about your project before scheduling a complimentary, commitment-free call with a designer to get advice on the most suitable package.

I’m not sure what package I should choose - can you help?


Yes! Click ‘Start your project’ to tell us what you need, then schedule a complimentary call with a designer who can help you choose your package or build you a custom package. It’s that simple!




Which package should I go for?


Speak to our design team - your best bet is clicking ‘Start your project’ to share some basic information about your project before scheduling a complimentary, commitment free call with a designer to advise you on the most suitable package. If you’re not sure, The Stylist is our most popular package as it’s a great middle ground - all our basic services are included and you can add on any design or renovation services you need later on in the project.




How long do projects take?


We’re accommodating, so let your designer know your desired timeline at the beginning of the project as lots of things have an impact on how long your project can take. For the design stage we reccomend allowing: The Starter - 2 weeks + lead times The Stylist - 1 Month + lead times The MRX varies depending on your brief




Can I change packages once my project starts?


Of course, you can always upgrade your package or add on additional services. Simply drop your Designer a message and they can recommend the best package and help you switch. We do not currently offer package downgrades.




How much should I budget for a project?


This is kind of like asking ‘how long is a piece of string?’ Lots of things have an impact on the cost of a project: what you’re looking for, the size and state of the existing space, the brands and finishing you want and the speed you need to get things done. Once your designer has an idea of these things, they can recommend a feasible budget to get you started, but to get things as accurate and personal as possible it’s always helpful to share what you’re comfortable spending as part of your brief so they can ensure that your proposal is sensitive to this.




Why do I need to share my budget?


To ensure your designer can make your proposal as accurate, personal and feasible as possible, it’s important you share what you’re comfortable spending as part of your brief so they can ensure they only propose ideas inline with your brief.




Do I need to pay upfront?


Yes, all packages require a form of upfront payment. For The Starter you pay 100% of the design fee up front. For The Stylist and The MR Experience we offer split payments on projects over $2,500. Check out the comparison chart on the pricing page for more details.




Is it difficult?


Nope! We do all the heavy lifting for you, so the design process for your new space is easy and enjoyable.




Can I get a discount?


Yes! We offer multi room discounts of up to 20% on The Stylist package, and do custom pricing for The MR Experience.




Do we get access to your Designer Discounts?


Your designer will work hard to make sure you’re paying the best retail price for the furniture, accessories and works they specify, which will include any quantity discounts or offers given by the vendor. Occasionally vendors offer Make Room a loyalty commission (sometimes referred to as a ‘Designer Discount’). This is not applicable to the retail pricing you will receive as part of your Design Proposal.




I don’t need a whole room styled or designed, just some advise


If you don’t think you need a whole package or aren't ready to commit you can simply schedule a couple of hours with a designer - check out our price list for more information.




Can I get renovation works done on a styling package?


Yes! Your designer will recommend a more appropriate package if your brief changes significantly during the design process. You’re also able to add on simple design and renovation works which we charge at 15% - check out our Pricing for more information on our services.
