6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.


Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.


8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

1. Avoid surprises with the interior design invoice template

Never shock your client with any new charges when handing over the invoice to your clients. It understandably is irks and reduces your chances of getting paid. Communicate all charges and rates before signing the contract.

We are aware that this often requires some solid negotiation skills because people are not able to comprehend all the pricing methods, but it's all worth it since clients value honesty a lot.

2. Keep records with the interior design invoice template

This is necessary for interior designers since there's a lot of material to buy and people to pay. You need to include all your costs throughout the project, along with their proofs, in your interior design invoice sample. Go through this to see the possible charges you might come across.

3. Invoice promptly with the interior design invoice template

You should develop the habit of sending out your invoices as soon as your project comes to an end.  It has better chances of getting paid quickly because the client is still in the process of dealing with you. If you're late, the client will have forgotten all about the job and this can be problematic.

An interior designer needs good cash flow. Without this, the designer would have to find new ways of raising money for out of pocket expenses. The invoice offers one way of raising and ensuring the business has sufficient flow of cash. You should allow a customer to cover the expenses with a sale instead of incurring and them from your pocket. In fact, you should plan to settle your expenses the same date you collect money from your interior design invoice example.

The interior designer invoice sample plays a crucial role in this. Some of the habits you can learn from the sample to improve your cash flow include:

4. The interior design invoice sample helps you create beautiful invoices

First, a properly formatted invoice looks great. A well-designed invoice is attractive to the eyes. An invoice has several sections. Each section has to be clear and easy to read, interpret or understand. This is what formatting the invoice properly guarantees you. Remember not to give the client any reason for refusing to pay you. A poorly formatted invoice that's impossible to read is one such reason that can convince the client to withhold the pay. If the client withholds your pay, who would be worth blaming when the business runs out of money?

5. The interior design invoice sample shows your professionalism

Proper marketing is a feature of true professionalism. An interior designer has no option but to be a true professional. The modern customer is too impressionable. You have to do everything imaginable to impress your clients. The fact they buy from you isn't something you can take lightly. Take time to format the invoice using interior design invoice software and all other financially related documents. Failure to address the needs of such customers by proving that you're a true professional who takes his job seriously could have devastating effect on your business.

6. The interior design invoice sample helps you understand your customers

According to the Queensland Government of Australia, no business can provide excellent customer service without understanding its customers and knowing what they want. The format helps you in meeting these goals by making it easier to understand what your customers want in an interior design invoice. As long as you meet and surpass customer expectation, your customers will not flee and go to a competitor. More than 65 percent of your customers will never return if you offer poor customer service or employ indifferent personnel.

7. The interior design invoice sample helps you provide quality customer service

Providing quality customer service requires excelling at different tasks. Everything you do as an interior designer must have a purpose, which is to furnish customers with quality services. For this reason, you shouldn't ignore the wonderful role something presumably as non-essential as an interior design invoice format. The format might appear useless before you see the role it plays in assuring your customers of your professionalism and enthusiasm for accuracy in all financial matters.

As a provider of independent contractor services, you want your checks to come in fast. One way to achieve this is making a seamless payments process that is convenient for you and your clients. Incorporating the invoice design ideas listed below makes it much easier for you to receive your payments and the clients to make those payments.

8. Create a secure storage for your clients' cards with the interior design invoice example

If you have a safe and secure online storage  facility, you can save your clients' credit card information. This would then allow you to charge such clients automatically on completion of certain portions of a project.

Doing this eliminates time consuming and repetitious back and forth communications with your clients, as stated in this article. This feature is particularly great for independent contractors offering personalized services. It allows such a contractor to bill  their client for precisely what they are owned.

For this process to work seamlessly, make sure that you obtain all relevant details about your client. In addition, do make sure your own details and those of your company are correct and current. Details involved here include names, addresses, emails, and telephone numbers.

9. Create a recurring invoice template with the interior design invoice  

One way of streamlining payment processes is having your clients make small payments over time. This is through portioning out your cost settlement using installments. A great way to accomplish this is setting up recurring invoices. This allows collection of similar amounts on regular intervals such as each week or each month, according to this article. You would be charging your customers automatically each interval.

This method would work seamlessly if every detail were captured correctly. Such a template would also ensure details remained current. That way, if you or your client changed addresses or bank accounts, such changes would automatically reflect on the interior design invoice template. Templates are available that allow discovery and consequent filling up of pertinent details to make this happen.

10. Create a fixed invoicing schedule with the interior design invoice example

Another way to enable fast payments is scheduling and sending invoices on specific days. These are those days most convenient for your bookkeeping and your clients. An example is dispatching all your invoices on month end.

Using the right tools and templates removes most of the pain involved in scheduling invoices. There are features that allow automating of repetitive and time-consuming chores in invoice scheduling.

11. Changing the timing of your interior design invoice

As stated previously, the invoice helps to improve your cash flow. Don't keep the invoices internally for too long. Send them out as soon as possible once you finish what the client hired you to do. The earlier you send them, the more you increase your chances of receiving timely payments from the client. Make this a habit and you will never have to worry about finances for settling day-to-day expenses. Consequently, your business will never worry about folding up because of lack of finances/cash flow.

12. Changing the terms of your interior design invoice

Once the invoice is out of your hands and in the client's possession, the next task would be to ensure they are settled quickly. One of the terms that you must include in the invoices, which you can borrow from the interior designer invoice sample, is to ask clients to pay within 30 days of the date that appears on the invoice. Be fair to your clients by sending the invoice early to avoid inconveniencing them. Find creative ways of convincing clients to pay early. According to, you can change invoice terms creatively.

13. Make it easy for clients to pay you with the interior design invoice example

Simplify the process for your customers. Avoid complicating the process. Remove stuff that make the client take too much time to write the check. People are busy, and this includes your clients. The world is at a stage where everything is done instantly. Nobody has the time to sit down through a time-consuming task. Make work easier for your clients by clarifying who they should address the check to and where they ought to send the payment. The amount due should be legible and clearly discernible to avoid creating confusion.

14. Communicate with the clients regularly with the interior design invoice example

The fact that you sent an invoice doesn't signify the end of your responsibilities. The next task, which you should embark on after a few days, is to remind the client to pay. You can only do this after sending and ensuring that the client received his invoice. Communicating with the client also involves checking with him whether the amount indicated on the invoice is what he was expecting. If the figure is what the client never expected, don't count on receiving the money any time soon until he clarifies the matter with you.

15. Create a plan for late payments with the interior design invoice example

The  interior designer invoice template should help you come up with a plan for late payments. All clients should know what to expect in case they delay or default with payments. Do not allow customers who owe you money to take charge of the payment process. Take the initiative and stay on guard. Clients should know that you aren't a bank or financial institution. Write and send a gentle, polite reminder to your customers informing them that their bill is due. The American Express recommends these 7 tips to collect money from clients who pay late or refuse to pay at all.

Therefore, don't hesitate using this guideline to improve your cash flow with invoice samples.

The biggest asset an interior designer has is his creativity. According to the California State University, creativity revolves around generation and recognition of new ideas in addition to the alternatives and possibilities required in solving problems and communicating with other people. Based on this definition, the interior designer needs to be as creative as possible. He has to keep churning out new ideas every time his clients seek him for new interior designs. The designer solves problems, which requires plenty of creativity.

16. The interior design invoice sample eliminates worries concerning finances

Therefore, based on the explanation given above, it's clear that the interior designer needs everything to work out well in his life and work. The interior designer invoice template goes a long way in ensuring that his finances are in place. According to an article published on BBC, an interior designer does more than choosing curtains. The article goes ahead to say that math is a requirement in interior design because of the skill required to do things like scale drawings. Your math skills will also prove handy when calculating how much the client should pay you.

17. The interior design invoice sample helps you respect the client's budget

While preparing the interior design invoice example, don't overlook the client's budget. Otherwise, you will succeed in annoying your client and he will never return. Managing an interior design project has specific challenges. One, it has timeframes that must be respected. Two, there are budget constraints to respect. Clients don't have a limitless source of finances. Nonetheless, this should not be a problem if you spent time with the client talking about the budget and the fees to charge for work he hired you to do.

18. The interior design invoice sample helps you meet your financial targets

The interior designer invoice template improves creativity by ensuring that you meet your financial targets. With money in place, your mind is not preoccupied thinking of raising finances to pay your bills. According to an article appearing on and attributed to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the annual earnings of the bottom 10% of all interior designers is around $25,720. The top 10 percent, on the other hand, earn an average of $86.430 per year. The salary depends on the industry where an interior designer works.

19. The interior design invoice sample trains you how to write invoices

Freelancing designers have to write invoices accurately to ensure they earn the right amount. For this reason, designers need to take time learning how to do this. This is where the template comes in handy. It indicates the important stuff a designer shouldn't omit from his invoice every time he writes one. Otherwise, a client will not feel obligated to pay for services rendered and this would seriously hinder your interior design work. The client needs reminders, which the designer sends via invoices, thus ensuring that he focuses on improving his creativity.

In summary

The above listed ideas go a long way in quickening payments for services rendered. However, it is critical to note that the best way to have this done is satisfying clients every time with top service delivery on time.

There is a lot more to interior design than just curating interiors. Professional interior designers agree that the art certainly is not limited to visualizing instead it encompasses several levels of management such as public dealing, team work and business management. All of these should be mastered by interior designers in order to enjoy a blossoming career.

Seems a bit overwhelming, doesn't it? No need to worry though, no person has a firm grasp on every sphere of life, not even the best interior designers. They all just focus on the things they are the best at and leave the rest to the pretty helpful management tools that have been developed ad hoc for each managerial aspect of interior designing, from concept building to project management.

Out of all these, financial management systems are probably the most in-demand by interior designers due to the variety of financial problems associated with this business. Many complain about the non professionalism they face from clients which includes failures to understand the proposed rates, not paying on time or even not paying at all.

Having a good financial management system at your disposal can end these struggles. Bonsai leads the way in financial management services for vocations such as interior design. With its comprehensive interior design invoice samples and templates, it has satisfied its massive customer base like no other service.
