Rental Policies

Seattle Design Center is excited to host your event.

We want to ensure that you and your guests have the best experience with us. To ensure that everyone is having a wonderful time, we have listed our rental policies for you below. We’d be happy to answer any questions that you may have!

Seattle Design Center’s goal is to make your event as seamless as possible. We provide on-site vendor support, security and janitorial services for all events to ensure quality and efficiency.


A 50% deposit of the total payment is made when you sign the contract for renting out the design center. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the event.

Damage Deposit

A damage deposit of $750 is required and due at the time of final payment. This deposit will be held and used for any additional cleaning, time overages or damage to the event space.

Time and Space

You will have access to begin setup at 3 p.m. the day of you event. If more setup time is needed, we will work together to get earlier access time with a fee of $90 per hour.

Events that end after 12 midnight will incur an additional $300 per hour fee to cover after-hours teardown expenses.


All events hosted at Seattle Design Center will be provided with security. For events with 300 or fewer guests, the cost is included in your rental fee. For events exceeding 300 guests, extra security is required.
