I love it when I get to work with interior designers on their web design or marketing projects. Interior designers have such a visual vocabulary and a holistic way of looking at the larger picture. It makes my collaborations with them so much fun! So when an interior designer reaches out to me about a website, I get excited. Interior designers, please hear me, your website should be a visual feast! And to achieve that, it doesn’t even need to come close to breaking the bank. I’ve rounded up the best interior design website templates that will help explode your business.
Websites are one of the most successful sales converters in your business. Especially if you’re a visual creative. It’s your chance to show people exactly what they’re going to get when they work with you. So you can have the greatest portfolio in the world, but if your website is poorly structured, missing vital elements, or just plain ugly you might as well resign yourself to a low sales year.
I create custom Showit websites as well as customize Showit templates. And, frankly, if you’ve got a tight budget for a new website, go with a template! With a great template (and then having me customize it so it is perfectly tailored to your business), you’re going to be set up with a higher converting website for years. Yes, I said years.
Interior design is a massively growing industry, and research projects only bigger growth over the next decade. Investing in your business now, even if you want to grow slowly, is going to have big returns. So let’s make sure your interior design website is at least going to include the basics:
So those items are what I would consider the basics. You must have those things on your interior design website to even remotely look like a capable professional. Now, here’s what you need to include on your interior design website to push yourself to the head of the pack.
The best option for new interior designers. I love this template for interior designers who only have a couple of projects under their belt, but who are looking to grow- especially in the luxury space. It’s a clean design that can feature your great photos, but doesn’t rely on images alone.
The best option for an interior designer of few words. If you like letting your work speak for itself, this is the website template for you. You’ll get a chance to show your work in style, but the site design doesn’t require a lot of copywriting. It’s a good way to share your work while you keep building your profile.
The best option for an interior designer who’s making a name for themselves. This is a highly editorial template and is perfect for the interior designer looking to work in the media. Whether you’re working to book television or print media spots, this website has a built in PR boost. You’re going to look like you belong.
The best option for the interior designer who’s growing a social media following. This template is rich in style, color, and connection. If you’ve been focused on growing awareness for your business via social media and want something that feels like it has that same energy but more substance, this is the template for you.
The best option for a luxury interior designer with several projects to share. This template has built in style which will translate to your brand. It has a beautiful portfolio page layout and the homepage offers some great ways to feature your work. This is a template that will present you well and help you grow.
The best option for the interior designer who’s done good work and is looking to connect. This is a very clean, very stylish traditional website template. You’re going to present yourself well and come off as professional. Plus, the design incorporates many ways for you to connect with potential clients.
The best option for an interior designer who offers something different. Maybe you only source chairs. Maybe you only design green spaces or conservatories. Maybe you specialize in one very specific aesthetic. This is the template for you. The design is modern and original but still relatable.
A beautiful website design is a strategic asset for an interior designer. It’s a digital home for your business, which reflects your design aesthetic and style. It’s a bridge that connects you to your clients, and the first impression of trust and credibility. A thoughtfully crafted website design can transform visitors into loyal clients. In an industry where appearances matter, a stunning website design will grow your business into the one you’ve been dreaming of.
Knowing when to upgrade to a custom website design for your business is something that’s instinctual. Most business owners can tell when their old website just isn’t doing it for them any more.
If you need a hard and fast checklist, I’d say if you meet any of these qualifications it’s time for a custom website design.
I’ve worked with some great interior designers, whose template customizations help them gain momentum and recognition in their field. I’ve also created several custom website designs for interior designers who were ready to take that leap. If you’d like to see a few of those custom website designs for interior designers, check out:
I want you to have the best interior design website possible. Like, when you share it with your friends, I want one of them to see you across the supermarket and yell over to you how incredible your new website is (that’s happened to one of my clients!). If that’s something you’re ready for, reach out to me! Fill out my contact form and let’s get into it. Whether you’re wanting a custom site or for me to help you turn a good template into a killer sales-converting website, I’m your gal.

Having been a visual artist for over 10 years, I know that every part of a brand (even the parts that are often unseen) deserve to be expressed with honesty and beauty. I am happiest standing behind the scenes, creating every design and detail for focused and intentional business owners. I created EP Design to stand beside visionaries and thought leaders who are fueled by joy.
