Interior Design Standard

By Sandra Funk

What IS the Standard?

It’s all the systems, tools and processes that Sandra Funk has created over her career. Essentially, it’s a comprehensive template for exactly how she runs her interior design business.

The Standard is composed of modules that outline Sandra’s entire business. Within each module are resources that you can start using right away.

Resources include a design agreement, flat-fee calculator, expectation-setting email templates, trade agreement, entire project process templates and so much more.

The clear and concise plan for day-to-day management - from client consult to install - would have taken me YEARS to develop on my own! Participating in the Standard can do this for you in no time.
