RoomPlays is an open and transparent Marketplace platform bringing talented interior designers from all over the world. Unlike Havenly, Modsy, Spacejoy etc - all our Designers are independent freelance interior designers or successful interior design small businesses.
When you book a Designer through RoomPlays - its like hiring your own personal interior designer, but without the hassle of researching their work, prices, reviews and services.
Our goal is to ensure our Designers’ & clients’ privacy is maintained. For that – we have a “Contact me” feature on each user’s profile.
RoomPlays has a wide variety of designers, each pricing their services based on value they provide. Our designers operate Individually & Independently and hence recommend that you price competitively, but also be true to what is worthy of your time and expertise.
Base Service: The Base service should be within the range and must include at minimum 1 E-Design (and preferably Shopping list of sourced products).
Add-ons: We recommend to customize your listing with Add-ons for anything beyond the Base service such as Paint suggestions, Floor Plan, 3D Rendering, Extra Revisions, Extra Rooms etc
Custom Orders: When a client places a custom order, you can accept, decline or negotiate with a counter offer - you are free to specify your new price here. If the client accepts, they will be redirected to complete the payment and you will receive confirmation once the booking has been placed.

Most Designers include a comprehensive Shopping list with links (aligning with client’s budget needs and preferred stores). The client takes responsibility for shopping & setup.
However, if you would like to offer in-person installation for local clients, you can add it as an add-on to your services.
We understand sometimes it can take longer than expected to turnaround an order. We recommend you inform the client well in advance about the timeline and set expectations accordingly. RoomPlays will not limit communication in any way.
There are several categories you can submit for. If you have an additional category, it can be added to the “Everything Else” bucket. Use “Tags” to make your design searchable. You are free to charge the services the way you feel best describes value. We recommend you price competitively, but also be respectful of your time and effort.
Clients coming to RoomPlays need to make the payment at the time of Booking. The platform only delivers a client booking to you if they have paid in full for the services they are requesting.
Clients may occasionally message you to vet your services before booking.
You can login to your Dashboard and pause any or all of your Designer Services with 1 click! When you’re ready, simply resume them.
We do not yet offer Affiliate links through RoomPlays but will be shortly. Until then, you can use your own Affiliate Links. Based on your client’s preference of stores, create your shopping list with rewardStyle, Rakuten or other Affiliate links to Amazon, Target, CB2, Pottery Barn, Walmart, West Elm, Houzz, Wayfair etc to earn direct commissions. However, the client is not bound to shop through your links
