A repeatable system in your design projects, so they could be completed according to plan.

Tracked

Communication between your clients, contractors and trades, so you avoid making costly mistakes.

How different would your life be?

We think it would be great!

(But you don’t have to take our word for it, read the words of a few ROI designers.)

ROI IS WELL WORTH THE MONEY, AS IT HAS SAVED ME SO MUCH TIME WITH CLIENTS, WHICH, IN ESSENCE, IS MONEY IN MY POCKET!

I have been a designer for two decades and felt I knew how to organize my clients, but this system has streamlined my business even more so. My clients love it! I use the ROI System from start to finish with my projects!

The initial client questionnaires are thorough and has led to more in-depth discussions with my clients. I highly suggest the ROI System to any designer who wants to benefit from having a seasoned designer share her method for working with clients. It lessens the learning curve on how to design kitchens, bathrooms, and any room in the house where skillful designer knowledge is necessary. It’s like having another top-shelf designer on staff.”

Hi, I’m Kathleen DiPaolo.

Once upon a time I was an Interior Designer in search of a system that would help me feel like I wasn’t constantly missing something.

Even though I had flipped hundreds of houses before jumping into my design business, I went from project to project “winging it” and reinventing the wheel because I didn’t have a consistent design process I was taking my clients through. I was so overwhelmed juggling design details, forgetting things, making mistakes, and not making any money.

It was so frustrating, and I knew there had to be a better way. Believe me, I have made all the mistakes, and to avoid repeating them, I developed the Return on Interiors system for myself — and now I’m offering it to you.

Return on Interiors simplifies the VERY complex interior design process and turns it into a manageable system, where you save time on your projects, hone your design process, make more money, and have happier clients.

With a system like Return on Interiors in place, you can get back to your love of design–the thing that brought you into this business in the first place.

I AM MORE CONFIDENT NOW THAN EVER BECAUSE OF THE ROI SYSTEM ON ALL MY PROJECTS.

I don’t have to scramble around searching for tools to keep all my projects running smoothly, The ROI System has all the answers ready at my fingertips. I print each form and set up all my client binders, this keeps all the information in one place and I look like a real pro on every project.

My clients love receiving their own binder and the funny thing is, they show their friends and guess what, that’s right, my name is all over the binder, so I’m also marketing my business!

The investment in this system has been one of the best things I have done to run a professional design business, I truly recommend ROI for all designers.”

A SYSTEM LIKE THIS WOULD HAVE TAKEN ME MONTHS AND POSSIBLY YEARS TO CREATE. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS SYSTEM AND THE BENEFITS IT PROVIDES TO MY BUSINESS!

One of the best investments I have recently made in my business has been to purchase the Return on Interiors system. Kathleen has taken years of her knowledge and experience and created valuable tools for Interior Designers to successfully manage client projects and their business.

One of the first ROI tools I implemented was Kathleen’s approach to organizing electronic files. Genius! My team and I can now quickly locate key information for client projects at any time. The branded client questionnaire’s have been extremely helpful in making sure I gather all key information to deliver a successful design plan. The worksheets, quick reference guides, client binder, and checklists have allowed me to gain control of the design process.”
