  1. How much would the entire design service for my home project cost?

After the initial free design consultation, your designer will share a design proposal with an estimated cost. Once you book us, this quotation will vary based on actual design choices and material selection.

  1. Do you charge for site visits?

Please speak to your designer to know more.

  1. What is design & management fee?

Ongrid Studio believes in complete transparency, which is why we disclose actual product and service costs to you with no hidden costs for design and project management. 

  1. Does the pricing of the products and furniture change over time?

Yes, the pricing of our furniture and products may vary over time. Your final quotation will have an expiry date for the price of the products and services offered. Ongrid Studio is a marketplace, and therefore cannot exert price control on its partners, except during the validity of the quote.

  1. Why don't you charge according to the square footage of my home?

The square footage of your home can never dictate the design and cost of your architecture and interior. For instance, we’ve had projects where a bare minimum 3BHK’s interiors would cost lesser than intricate interiors for a 1BHK project. What this essentially means is, our transparent pricing ensure you’re charged based on the designs, furniture and products you choose and not on the mere square footage.

  1. Do I have to pay my design partner and service partner directly?

No. To safeguard and track your transactions, kindly make all your payments to Ongrid Studio directly. You’ll never have to make any extra/ separate payments to your designer or service partner. Please visit our payments tab for more information.

  1. When can I apply for a loan to get my interiors done?

Ongrid Studio has tied up with several banks to offer you attractive and flexible EMI options. We recommend applying for a loan when your final designs are ready. However, please speak to your Ongrid Studio designer for guidance on your unique needs.
