Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Kitchen Designers, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $32K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $37K. On average, Kitchen Designers make $41K following one to two decades on the job. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $42K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; approximately half of respondents fit between this range. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up slightly less than a third of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than two percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining just under a fifth.
