Answer : The entry-level salary for an Interior Designer straight out of school is $35,000-$40,000. This will vary by company and the location you are living in. Regardless of where you live, your salary can rise up to about $55,000-$60,000 a year with 5 years experience. Continuing education is also very important for being able to move into higher positions or starting your own business later on. And these salaries don't take into account any bonuses or benefits that may be provided by the employer such as health insurance and matching retirement contributions.
