Interior designers always come up with great ideas for home improvement. If you made a unique design for a deck that you think a lot of people will like, you can also sell it and earn some money. There are many ways to sell a home design idea. All you have to do is find out which one is best for you with the following tips.
1. Offer it to an architect you know
Unless you are a licensed architect, interior designer, or builder in the home decking business, it would be difficult for you to make money from your design. You should offer it to someone who professionally designs for homes. An architect would gladly accept your design if you have a client who wants to add a deck to their home. Imagine how much time and energy an architect will save if he no longer has to design the deck because she bought the design from her.
2. Sell it online
If you don’t know any architects or are too shy to approach one, you may be able to sell your design online. You can create your own website if you don’t already have one, or you can sell it on Craigslist. But remember not to show the full design because someone could copy it without your knowledge and it would be hard to tell if that happens. Offer to personally deliver your plan or 3D rendering to the potential buyer’s location.
3. Partner with a renovation company
You can also partner with a renovation company to call if you need a deck or patio design. This is a good idea because decks and patios are popular renovation projects, so you won’t be short of customers. Make sure you have more than one design so customers have options. Always make 3D renders of your designs to show them to potential clients.
Find a renovation company that is honest and won’t screw you over. Go to their office and sell your work or offer your services to them. There is no harm in trying.
Before allowing anyone to view your design, check your state’s copyright law and see if your platform’s design can be protected. After all, your design is your intellectual property, and copyright is a layer of protection to prevent your design from being used by others without your permission.
Selling your deck designs can be difficult, but if you’re determined, you can find an architect or renovation company that will pay for their work so you can make money.
