Overview

The first edition of Estimating for Interior Designers quickly became the “bible” for interior designers everywhere. This completely updated and revised edition provides all the basic, nuts-and-bolts information readers expect, along with all-new sections on faux finishing, including trompe l'oeil; Roman shades; and using upholstery fabrics for drapery and bed coverings. There is also a completely new chapter on hard floor coverings, including marble, stone, wood, painted canvas, and vinyl. Of course, all materials and labor cost figures have been updated.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sampson, a practicing interior designer for 25 years, has enlarged her previous edition of this book (Watson-Guptill, 1991), which has become a standard text in many interior design schools. As before, she discusses how to estimate the cost of materials and labor required for the installation or application of paint, wall coverings, carpeting, drapery, bed coverings, and tablecloths with an expanded chapter on upholstery and an additional chapter on hard flooring, all illustrated with clear line drawings. Sample work orders are provided, with blank ones moved from an appendix to each applicable chapter. Although designed for students and professional interior designers, large public library collections will find this book useful. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
