Drafting Services for Interior Designers

Drafting Services for Interior Designers 

Visual communication is one of the most important (if not the most important) aspects of an interior design presentation. As an interior designer, you may choose to present a mood board, a floor plan, an elevation, a construction document, or a three-dimensional rendering to communicate your design vision with your clients. Later in the project, visual tools like these will also ensure that the contractors are all on the same page, as well. Modeling all sides of a three-dimensional room can take up to 16 hours to complete on average. Drafting and modeling can easily  take up a huge chunk of a designer’s week. Some of you may not have learned how to use modeling software when you went to school, which can add even more additional time onto this estimate. Luckily, there are drafting services for interior designers out there to help you prepare and polish presentations. Believe us, these services can make your life a whole lot easier – and allow you to stay focused on the parts of your business and the elements of your projects that you enjoy the most!

4Dbiz offers a variety of drafting services for interior designers to meet any of your project needs. Our well-rounded team has an impressive drafting skill set, which includes AutoCAD, Revit, SketchUp, Vray, Coohom, Foyr, Lumion, and Enscape. We provide high-quality two-dimensional drawing and three-dimensional computer-aided modeling. Read on to learn more about our drafting services.

Photorealistic rendering

Identify Your Drafting Needs

When you give our 4Dbiz Virtual Design Assistant team a drafting task to complete on your behalf, the first step is to provide us with as many details as you can about the project and the necessary deliverables. We would like to get some background on your project before we begin, so that we can use our time efficiently. Be prepared to answer these questions:

  • What type of drawing(s) do you need? (Design drawings, technical drawings, 3D models, renderings, a mood board, etc.)
  • When do you need the drawing(s)? Do you have a specific deadline? (*We do our best to turn around drawings as quickly as possible. However, we do not want to sacrifice the quality of the drawing, so we cannot guarantee that a drawing can be completed with a turnaround time of less than 24 hours)
  • Project & page layout information (project name, address, client, desired page size if printing, title block, and logo)

Two-Dimensional Drawing Types

Let’s take these drawing categories one step further and break them down into something more specific. Two-dimensional drawings can include design drawings or construction and technical documents. You may or may not need both types of drawings, depending on your intended use for them.

Design drawings are solely for visual purposes. Perhaps you want to show a client how the mirror they like will look in relation to the scale of their bathroom vanity. Or maybe you want to show your client a few different space plan options.

Floor Plan  Shaded Elevation

Examples of design drawings include:

  • Space Plans
  • Furniture Plans
  • Elevations
  • Shaded Elevations
  • Section Cuts
  • Reflected Ceiling Plans
  • Lighting Plans

Technical or construction drawings, sometimes referred to as “shop drawings,” serve as a set of instructions for the contractors, architects, and engineers who will actually bring your design concept to fruition. They are typically required when applying for permits as well. Although accuracy is always important for any drawing, it is crucial that construction drawings are accurate. They provide all of the necessary structural information that is needed to physically build something. If information is inaccurate, you run the risk of a costly result.

Construction Drawing

Examples of construction drawings include:

  • Custom Millwork
  • Shop Drawings for Custom Products
  • Plumbing Specifications
  • Electrical Specifications
  • Structural Specifications

Three-Dimensional Modeling Types

Computer-aided modeling is useful because it helps you and your clients visualize how a design will actually look in a three-dimensional space. You can undoubtedly get a better sense of how objects relate to each other when you see their depth, in addition to their height and width. We typically use programs such as Coohom, Foyr, Chief Architect, and SketchUp for three-dimensional modeling.

We consider a three-dimensional model to be a rendering when photorealistic views or walkthroughs are needed, or when it will require an extensive amount of time to complete. Renderings are determined on a task-by-task basis. Our team’s preferred rendering programs are SketchUp and Vray, but we are happy to work with you if you require specific accommodations.

3D ModelPhotorealistic Rendering

The estimated time to complete one view of a photorealistic rendering can range from 2 to 8 hours, depending on the size of the room to render. Walkthroughs require an additional 4 to 6 hours on top of the still-view estimate.

If you’re looking to cut down on time, a simple three-dimensional computer-aided model is the way to go. It is still effective in conveying your design ideas, but it is not quite as labor-intensive as a full rendering. We estimate that a three-dimensional model view can take between 1 to 4 hours to complete.

Before we begin a project, we will provide you with an estimation range and an initial invoice for the lowest number of hours required to complete it. Any additional time spent beyond the lowest hour estimate will be billed on a separate invoice once the final drawings are approved.

Still not sure what type of drawings you need? No problem! Schedule a 1:1 call with our Senior Drafting Specialist, who can help you determine the best way to present the concepts that you need to visually communicate. We offer drafting services for interior designers because we see the value of solid visual communication within the industry. We care about your business success, and we’re here to celebrate those big and small wins right along with you!

Client Management Portal

One of our most important free tools for interior designers is the client management portal. This portal allows you to keep a running list of all your active clients. It effectively condenses what could be a mess of papers on your desk into an organized space-saving system that’s convenient and easy to use.

To-Do List

4Dbiz’s To-Do List feature alone is worth its weight in gold for busy interior designers. We’ve done the work for you to set up an organization system that is straightforward and efficient. You can keep all of your tasks for every project organized, giving you the ability to quickly identify outstanding tasks and upcoming deadlines.

Say goodbye to pulling up 10 different documents and tabs when you work on a project! You can enter details for each task, including a description, the deadline, and estimated hours, in the To-Do List. Time spent on a task can also be tracked, and there is even an option to pass tasks to 4Dbiz’s virtual assistants when you’re feeling swamped. To-Do List Screenshot

You can add tasks directly in the To-Do List, or you can opt to import a list if you already have one that’s ten miles long when you become a member. As you complete them, tasks can be marked as complete. Completed tasks are separated from the outstanding tasks. You can still reference completed tasks, but they won’t bog down your list with unnecessary information or take your focus away from your priorities.

 

Virtual Workroom

Interior design can be a competitive industry, so you probably already know that it’s important to make your business stand out. One solution is to offer high-quality custom products that make your designs truly unique. However, sourcing custom products on your own can be a time-consuming process. That’s why 4Dbiz offers the Virtual Workroom.

Virtual Workroom Screenshot

With access to the Virtual Workroom, you can request estimates and order a variety of products and custom decor that fit your client’s needs. Examples of offerings include:

  • Drapery
  • Window treatments
  • Carpet
  • Platform beds/headboards
  • Bedding – pillows, cushions, and duvets
  • Custom furniture
  • Sample kits

4Dbiz members are not required to use our virtual assistant services in order to access the Workroom. It is a complementary resource that gives you the flexibility and creative freedom to be as innovative as you want with design projects.

 

Strategy Center

Now let’s switch gears and talk about the strategy for your design business. At 4Dbiz, we’ve got your back on this aspect, too! You can use our Strategy Center to develop and build on the foundation for your business and ensure that it operates smoothly.

Strategy Center Screenshot

Start by creating your business profile, which holds all of the pertinent information for your design business. The profile is designed to spark ideas and guide you through the process of developing a solid business model. In your profile, you can identify your:

  • Vision statement
  • Mission statement
  • Tag line
  • Customer avatar (your ideal client)
  • Client psychographics
  • Elevator pitch
  • Core values
  • Business goals (weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual)
  • Revenue goals (quarterly and annual)

Defining your goals and values up front will help you monitor your business success over time. It’s a good source of motivation to check in on your progress now and then, too. The “Revenue Goals” section even features an automatic calculator that allows you to track your progress towards your quarterly and annual goals.

Through the Strategy Center, you can also see how well you’ve optimized your business. If you’re looking for some additional support with marketing or business coaching, schedule a Strategy Session with Shayna Rose, or participate in a two-hour marketing and strategy boot camp for an additional fee.

Design Networking Strategies

Design Networking Strategies

You have the skills and knowledge, and you’ve taken the first step to starting up your own interior design business. But when it comes to design networking and finding clients, you’re not quite sure where to start. Does this sound like you? Or perhaps you’re already heavily invested in your design career, but there’s been a lull in new business lately. Business owners are known for having to wear many hats, including being the primary salesperson for their services. It can be overwhelming at times, but selling your services doesn’t have to be. Read on to learn how you can reach potential clients and build your business at the same time.

Digital Networking Strategies

In this day and age, technology is heavily relied on for both business and pleasure. So it can be extremely beneficial to utilize digital media as a powerful design networking and marketing tool.

 

Promote Your Business on Social Media

It is becoming increasingly necessary for businesses to have a presence on major platforms, including Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, and Pinterest. Social media is at the fingertips of most of the world, and it has become useful for expanding one’s circle and discovering potential clients.

Gone are the days of high-pressure sales. Posting regularly on major social media platforms introduces your work to a broad audience and creates a sense of familiarity with them in a low-pressure environment. You can also use hashtags to make your posts show up in more searches and increase their visibility.

To fully take advantage of social media promotion strategies, you should maintain active involvement on major social media platforms. This includes:

  • Liking and commenting on others’  posts
  • Spending time in the “Explore” section on Instagram
  • Researching hashtags that are relevant to your field
  • Following accounts that could lead to potential referrals or collaborations down the road. You never know if the builder you follow might notice your work and ask you to design the interior of a project on which he’s been working!

 

Become an Interior Design Blogger

Starting a blog is another efficient way to network and make your business known in the digital world. An interior design blog can feature:

  • Creative decorating tips
  • Inspiration images
  • Behind-the-scenes looks at projects
  • Sneak peeks into the design process to show clients what they can expect from your services.
  • Anything else that shows off your knowledge and expertise in the field!

Blogging will help you gain credibility and build trust with the public more quickly. Interested readers will follow along, and when the time comes that they need help with a design challenge, your business information will already be in their back pocket.

There are opportunities to reach a wider audience and increase the revenue stream for your business through affiliate marketing. You can use your blog to highlight products or services in your projects, and many companies offer commission for recommending their products. Not only could you potentially increase your revenue, but you will also expand your reach by appealing to the followers of the company you are promoting.

 

Tailor Your SEO To Optimize Design Networking Opportunities

For those on a limited budget, search Engine Optimization (SEO) can make all the difference for your business. SEO involves using analytics and keywords that are attached to digital content to increase traffic from search engines. In other words, it’s a little boost in search rankings for your business. The best part? It’s free!

To improve SEO for your business, you can start by paying attention to these factors:

  • Brainstorm keywords and short phrases that you think your target market will search to find your services. Use an online research tool to confirm which of these phrases are searched most often and keyword difficulty (how many other businesses already have a high ranking for that search term.)
  • Keep titles simple and unique: include a strong identifying keyword, limit to 55-60 characters, and use words like “how” and “why”
  • Meta descriptions should be 1-2 sentences and include a very detailed summary of what readers can expect from your content. Don’t forget to include an identifying keyword!
  • Use short paragraphs and bulleted lists
  • Use headings and subheadings with keywords for visual appeal
  • Call-to-action buttons that guide your reader and help them navigate to your services

Online Advertising

If marketing services are within your budget, it can also be a good idea to consider investing in online advertising. Google Ads offers business owners the opportunity to promote services and products through search engines like Google, as well as on websites, videos, and mobile apps. Ads are pay-per-click (PPC), which means that you only pay for the ad when someone clicks on it. Major social media and e-commerce platforms also offer advertising services, including campaigns that start as low as $1 per day.

 

Launch Design Networking Email Campaigns

Email marketing campaigns are typically very successful in drumming up referrals and additional business from previous clients. Start an email list with current contacts who might be interested in your services, then focus on how to grow that list.

Use Lead Magnets

One effective tool for growing your email list is a lead magnet. Lead magnets offer free access to exclusive content, in exchange for the interested party’s contact information. This is a great way to identify who is interested in your services. You can build an email list, while also sharing your knowledge with potential clients. Examples of lead magnets include:

  • Newsletters and updates about your business – new projects, events, behind-the-scenes, etc.
  • Special offers for services
  • Whitepaper – offer in-depth product recommendations, design tips, or other educational information that will teach readers something new
  •  Surveys and polls – show readers that you’re interested in their input; this helps you learn more about your audience’s interests so that you can improve the appeal of future content as well

Email Campaign Tips

Send out periodic email blasts to everyone on your list, as a gentle reminder of your services, and make sure your content offers something valuable to your readers. You never know when an email might reach someone at a perfectly opportune time.

Still not sure what to include? Here are some additional ideas:

  • Introduction for new subscribers – describe your business, goals, background, anything you think will create a connection!
  • Relevant industry information – share case studies, the latest news in interior design, etc.
  • Calls to action – encourage readers to take immediate action

Find Additional Marketing Support

The challenge with navigating the digital landscape is that all of the design networking strategies listed above take time – time to learn, time to post, and time to grow. Outsourcing social media responsibilities for your design business can prove to be an effective solution. 4Dbiz offers marketing assistance from knowledgeable professionals who find satisfaction in collaborative work and celebrating business growth right alongside you. Contact Evelyn at 4Dbiz to schedule a call today!

 

Boost Your Design Business With Real-Life Connections

In spite of the emerging trend toward digital spaces, don’t overlook real-life connections either! There is something to be said for design networking in-person, as these interactions can make a more memorable and lasting impression.

Referrals

Sometimes drumming up business is all about who you know. For example, Client A approaches you with a small renovation project. You’re not sure if you should accept because it will take up a lot of your time, but you ultimately decide it sounds like a fun project. When the project is finished, Client A is so happy with the results that she tells all of her friends about it, including Client B. Client B is a developer and has been looking for a solid interior designer to assist with a multi-family housing project. Client A’s referral could not have come at a more convenient time, which means you’ve just earned yourself more business.

In-Person Design Networking Opportunities

Look for opportunities to get involved in circles with which you aren’t familiar. Here are some suggestions:

  • Collaborate with a contractor, builder, or even another interior designer who has a little more exposure than you
  • Do some volunteer work and partner with local organizations to show how your business is an impactful contributor in the community
  • Host workshops and special events at your own office or a public space to meet new people who might be interested in your services
  • Design networking can also be outside the industry. Find people who align with your values. For example, if your niche is sustainable interior design, find referral partners who are also interested in sustainability (you will probably have overlap in your ideal client) – You’ll have to reword this, but you get what I mean!

It’s always a good practice to keep your ears open for new opportunities to meet people. Never underestimate the power of word of mouth!

Business Coaching for interior designs at 4Dbiz

Business Coaching for Interior Designers

For principal interior designers, it is essential to not only understand the elements of design, but also the concepts of running a business. Business acumen is a major contributing factor to company success; luckily, it is an acquired skill that can be learned. Whether you need help with networking, proposals, e-commerce, business operations,  or just need a consultant you can trust – 4Dbiz can provide business coaching for interior designers through 1:1 Strategy Sessions.

Business Coach for Interior Designers

4Dbiz’s business Strategy Sessions are led by our Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Shayna Rose Pellino. 

Shayna’s business expertise comes from her own learning experiences as a business owner. Three years into her career in the interior design industry, she had uncovered a host of challenges and unmet needs within the industry. She launched Shayna Rose Interiors in 2017 with much success, but when she unexpectedly had a crippling accident, she was forced to switch to a remote business model. 

It was during this difficult time that Shayna faced both successes and failures. Her business was steadily growing, but her virtual team did not have the skills necessary to design and order the custom products she was creating. Her second business, 4Dbiz, grew out of a desire to address the unmet need for affordable support for design entrepreneurs. 

What sets Shayna apart from many other business coaches is the fact that she is presently active in the interior design industry. Unlike many gurus who are no longer hands-on with interior design projects and business operations, Shayna Rose Interiors is still fully operational. Her first-hand knowledge of the industry gives her the ability to offer relevant information on the most current business trends and strategies in interior design.

Shayna approaches her businesses with a focus on the motto, “Everyone wins.” She is inspired by challenges that others see as problems, and she genuinely wants to see her clients succeed. Shayna will work with you to identify the most effective strategies for your business and how to achieve significant long-term growth. She is also happy to answer any business-related questions you may have along the way. 

Business Strategy Coaching for Interior Designers

In a 1:1 business Strategy Session, you will work with Shayna to identify personal strategies for your business. You will explore avenues for maintaining steady growth through clarifying your systems and increasing efficiency! 

Common topics covered during the 1-hour call include:

  • How to build profitable proposals
  • Business operations
  • Networking strategies 
  • How to delegate/build a team
  • E-commerce 
  • How to sell custom products
  • And so much more!

Are you ready to enhance your business success? Register to 4Dbiz to schedule a 1:1 business Strategy Session with Shayna today!

At 4Dbiz, our mission is to help interior designers succeed in business. One of the most common pain points we hear from our designer community is that marketing often falls by the wayside. Maybe you are so busy that you just don’t have time to spend on your digital marketing efforts. Or, maybe a lack of understanding leaves you feeling unsure of how to market your design business. Either way, 4Dbiz is here to provide marketing support for interior designers. And we would love to work with you!

Marketing Consultant For Interior Designers 

When you sign up to work with the 4Dbiz Marketing Team, the first step will be to schedule your first marketing consultation with our Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer, Evelyn Roberts. 

Evelyn’s background is in copywriting, digital content marketing, and branding for interior designers. She is passionate about helping every designer find their unique brand voice and create tailored content that provides value to their ideal client. 

Working with Evelyn, you will be challenged to break down your overall business goals into actionable, measurable steps, then to think critically about what specific marketing actions will draw you closer to those goals. At 4Dbiz, we do not believe that you need to invest money into paid advertising in order to succeed (at least not right away). Rather, Evelyn will help you strategize the most effective organic marketing efforts your interior design business can begin today!

 

Marketing Consultations For Interior Designers 

Since the first step to working with our 4Dbiz Marketing Team is the 1-hour marketing consultation, you might be wondering, “What can I expect from a marketing consultation?” 

In the 1-hour call, Evelyn will:

  • Do a web search of your business and provide feedback about how you appear online right now
  • Ask critical questions about your current marketing strategy
  • Outline the monthly marketing plan that you should be working toward for your business
  • Get to know your business voice, brand, messaging, and target audience
  • Help you identify the best first step(s) for your business to take today, whether you plan to do it yourself or have the 4Dbiz Marketing team do it for you!

 

Content Marketing For Interior Designers

After the 1-hour marketing consultation, you can decide which course of action is best for you: 

  1. I will take all of this valuable feedback and implement it on my own. 
  2. I do not have the time to implement this feedback on my own. I will collaborate with the 4Dbiz Marketing team to have this done for me.

Ultimately, how you choose to move forward is completely up to you! Either way, you will have Evelyn as your dedicated Marketing Consultant. So you’ll always have someone to bounce ideas off of, ask questions, request feedback, and get ideas from!
