How to Write a Business Plan for an Interior Design Company. You've decided to open an interior design company. You have the knowledge, expertise and a little bit of money. All you need is a little more start-up capital and you will become a business owner. Obtaining a loan for your new interior design business begins with writing a business plan.
Prepare a detailed description of your business. Begin with an "Executive Summary" that includes the mission statement for your business. Include a short description of who you are and your experience in the interior design industry.
Write a "Company Summary." Include a brief description of the products and services you will provide, a detailed list of your start-up costs, where your business will be located and how you will distinguish your business from other interior design companies.
Describe the marketing strategy. Prepare an explanation of how you plan to market the business as well as the projected sales for three years.
Develop a "Management Summary." In this section, list the names of the management team and the employees. Include relevant information such as college education, special recognition or awards received, and previous work history and experience.
Put your financial plan in order. This is the most important section of any business plan. Include a break-even analysis and the following projected financial statements: Profit and Loss, Statement of Cash Flow and a Balance Sheet.
Provide a Ratio Analysis in your financial statements. This section should include an analysis of how your interior design business will compare financially with similar-sized businesses in the industry.
