A Beautiful Concept
Much of our success can be attributed to the wisdom behind the fundamental Decorating Den Interiors concept: Home decorating should be done in the home. Our customers enjoy the convenience of seeing and reviewing thousands of quality samples from top manufacturers brought right to their homes. In this truly convenient setting, our decorators focus on the individual lifestyles, budgets, long-term needs and immediate desires of our clients while offering them a wide variety of decorating choices. Once they realize the time savings and convenience advantages of having a personal decorator and a retail store at their door, new customers quickly become repeat customers. And, satisfied customers generate referral customers.
An Unbeatable Competitive Edge
Our complimentary in-home consultations, coupled with outstanding shopping convenience give our local owners a competitive edge. Most new customers are surprised at the number of products we bring, impressed by how much value our professional decorators deliver, and are amazed at how enjoyable the experience can be.
Decorating Den Interiors offers a number of business-building advantages that are simply not available to many independent retail stores or independent decorators. As a Decorating Den Interiors franchisee, you instantly present an image of company strength and quality that is envied by most independent decorators. Additional benefits include the buying power of a large retail company, established accounts with top suppliers & manufacturers, impressive electronic and printed advertising, and effective lead generation tools. Our franchise also includes startup and ongoing training support, turn-key business management systems, sales incentives from our leading suppliers and instant access to help from hundreds of professionals across the country.
A Remarkable Company
Decorating Den Interiors has become the largest and most comprehensive full service decorating franchise in North America. We are the world's largest and oldest independently owned franchisor of interior decorating businesses. Entrepreneur Magazine rated us "Best of the Best" ten years in a row.
Our industry acceptance is most gratifying. A visit to our Dream Room Photo Gallery will quickly show why our designers' work have been displayed in so many news publications, extolled on national television, featured in magazines, reviewed in Interior Design books and seen in thousands of local newspapers across the country.
Seven Businesses in One
One of Decorating Den Interiors' best advantages is product variety. Because we offer our clients blinds/shades/shutters and custom draperies, casual/fine/outdoor furniture, floor/wall/bed coverings, accessories and lighting, our decorators enjoy increased sales opportunities on each client call. We truly do have something for everyone. Our Interior Decorators and Residential Designers have extensive sampling packages that allow them to offer several businesses rolled into one. We offer:
- Custom Window Treatments
- Blinds & Shades
- Fine Furniture
- Closet Systems
- Outdoor Furniture
- Carpeting & Area Rugs
- Artwork & more
Because we have Good/Better/Best quality in all of our products, our franchisees have the ability to work within any reasonable budget.
Our franchisees are trained professionals who supervise the project from conception to installation and work with the customer in "pulling it all together". The Decorating Den Interiors concept simply makes great business sense.
Established Product Lines
With the advantage of our multi-million-dollar group buying power, Decorating Den Interiors has negotiated superior product packages with a structured Preferred Network of over 100 top suppliers that provide our decorators with:
- More choices for the client
- Increased efficiency for the franchisee
- Less searching for that 'special item'
- Extensive sampling of fabrics, finishes, leathers
- Higher discounts on the purchase
- Greater profits on each sale
Besides freeing our owners from setting up new vendor accounts or being faced with large minimum orders, the Preferred Supplier Network allows our owners to buy at wholesale prices and design projects in multi-lifestyle categories as well as satisfy multiple homeowner demographic profiles.
A Solid Industry
Looking beyond all of the glamour and excitement associated with the home furnishing industry, interior decorating is also one of the nation's largest growth industries. Home furnishings and remodeling represent a $200 billion market in the U.S. and Canada. With every home that is built or purchased, a new prospective client is created. Even in markets where new housing sales have slowed, remodeling of existing homes is growing. Countless TV design shows are convincing those who believe that now may not be the time to buy a new home decide to renovate their current home instead. Regardless of the economy, the business potential for decorating is always there.
