If you have gone to school for interior design, or perhaps you have found that you have a gift for adding a great touch to a redone room, you may want to start your own interior design business. This can be a great idea, and a very rewarding endeavor, but there are some things you should know and do before you start out on your own. It may take you a bit to get everything together for your new business, but it is better to wait a bit before starting so you have a solid base than to start out in a rush and fail within six months. Take your time for the longevity of your business.

Before you start your own interior design business, you have to know something about business. If you do not have someone to help you out with this, you may want to make sure you go out and take a few classes. You can have all the skill and talent in the world in the ways of redoing homes, but you are not going to get very far if you do not know how to run your business and take care of your investment. If you keep your business very small you may be okay, but for anything else, some business knowledge is going to take you far.

Secondly, you have to think about where you are going to put your business. If you live in a small town of about 1000, you may get some business for a little while, but you are not going to have enough in the long run to sustain a successful business. You have to think about a larger location. Either you move to start your interior design business, or you advertise in all directions and prepare yourself to do some traveling. Remember that though there are going to be some good clients in small towns, on average, they have less to spend and may not be repeat customers. Take your location choice very seriously.

Do you have suppliers in the area? Everyone that has an interior design business has a list of sources that they use for their materials. They cultivate relationships with them so that they use them often and get a discount in return. Such companies should have what you need when you need it, and should also have the ability to order something with quick delivery if they happen to be out of what you need. Think about these stores and start building some preliminary relationships with them before you even consider opening your doors for business.

Lastly, think about your own ambition and how much time you have to put into your new interior design business. Do you know someone that can help you out? Though interior design is never a one person business, you do want to know you have someone who is not like you in thinking to balance out your business. Find a few designers that may want to go in with you, but that have very different tastes. That way you have a few different portfolios to show potential customers and they have a better chance of finding something they like.
