## 1.Decoration design fee

The design fee refers to the measurement fee, plan design fee, and construction drawing design fee of the project before construction. This is not a hard indicator. If you are familiar with these and can control the entire construction site, you can first list the projects you are going to do, and then give a general idea, and then follow the principle of construction and design. -Under normal circumstances, the design fee will only account for 3%~5% of the total cost.

## 2.Decoration material cost

The cost of decoration materials occupies the largest proportion of the decoration expenditure and is the most important factor affecting the cost of decoration. The more investment in decoration, the greater the proportion of decoration material costs. Decoration materials can be divided into main materials and auxiliary materials.

### 2.1 Main material fee

It refers to the finished and semi-finished materials involved in the decoration construction according to the construction area or a single project, such as floors, tiles, sanitary ware, lamps, hardware locks, etc.

### 2.2 Auxiliary material fee

Refers to materials that are difficult to calculate clearly consumed in decoration construction, such as cement, sand, iron nails, water-based adhesive tape, electrical tape, adhesives, etc. There are many kinds of decoration materials on the market, and the grade and quality vary greatly. What grade of decoration materials to choose directly determines the level of decoration costs. The number of decoration items and engineering quantities is also a direct factor that affects the cost. For example, how many cabinets are made, what kind of ceiling to hang, what shape, etc., will have a certain impact on the cost. Therefore, it generally accounts for 40%~45% of the total project cost.

## 3.Decoration worker salary

Worker wages refer to the wages of masons, carpenters, plumbers, painters, etc. Each worker’s daily wage is multiplied by the number of people and the number of days to get the total amount of labor costs. Labor costs generally account for 18% to 25% of the total project cost.

## 4.Decoration management fee

The management fee refers to the expenses used by the decoration company in the management, which is for the large-scale home improvement company. In the decoration process, the decoration company will provide assistance in buying materials, entering the site to supervise the work, and coordinating the expenses required in all aspects. It accounts for 5%~10% of the total cost. If you hire a small construction team, there is no such fee.

## 5.Renovation company's expenses

The profit of the decoration company is generally 15%~20%. Choosing a decoration company is another important factor that affects the cost. There is a big difference between the cost of a formal decoration company and a "personal decoration". The latter basically only earns money, earns very little profit, and has no other design and management costs. For those low-end simple decorations that do not need to be designed, choosing "personal decoration" will undoubtedly save a lot of money. Of course, it should be noted that the disadvantages of choosing them are also very obvious. If you choose a formal decoration company, it will naturally cost more money.
