Interior design is the art of enhancing interiors. Interior designers take a space and make it more attractive, functional, and safe.
The job involves many different duties, including space planning and product research, coordinating with project stakeholders (home and business owners, contractors, stores) and establishing timelines, and finally overseeing construction and executing the design.
Interior Designers Need Knowledge on a Range of Topics
While you may have great design instincts or experience in other design fields, if you’ve never spent time studying interior design, it’s unlikely that you know all the ins and outs of the profession. For example, interior designers have to be aware of building codes, inspection regulations, and universal accessibility standards.
