A Chat with The Better Half Designs, LLC
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our firm strives to change the way design services are viewed. We believe in creating beautiful and functional spaces that are affordable for the average family. We do so by offering DIY-friendly eDesign boards and by charging a simple, flat rate of $80 per hour and never charging mark-ups. Ever.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We believe every home deserves a designer. Design services are a luxury at their core, but our goal is to make them affordable so that they’re no longer only available for the ultra-rich. By not charging mark-ups, our hourly rate remains the same whether we recommend a $5,000 couch or one for $500.
What do you love most about your job?
The look on our clients’ faces once the final project has been presented. Hearing that our designs not only made their house feel like a home, but made the lives of their family easier and more organized through our focus on functionality. And knowing we did it all without breaking the bank!
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
[We helped] a military family that had moved seven times in eight years and was finally able to buy a house. After the project, we received a card that said that because of our designs, they and their children finally felt like they had a forever home—the one they had always dreamed of.
