An Interior Designer is a creative professional who plans and design the interiors of buildings (residential or commercial property, and even the interiors of yachts, aeroplanes, etc). Interior Designers typically work with the architect in creating the overall space. Interior Designers need to be highly creative and original individuals who are able to translate a concept into a finished environment. Interior designers work in design studios, department stores, manufacturing firms, or design firms. Interior Designers can also teach in schools of design, work in consultancies or work for magazines that deal with home furnishings and interior design.

Responsibilities & Skills

An Interior Designer's role is to take a design concept and turn it into production. The Interior Designer will typically speak with the client to find out what his preferences are with regards to the finished interior design, and this would take into account the client's habits, lifestyle, budget and other factors. Once this is done, the Interior Designer will draw up floor plans or sketches, often using 3D design or vector programs. Interior designers present these plans and sketches to clients along with color charts, fabric swatches, and any other visual aid. Such plans may undergo several revisions until the client is satisfied with the proposed design.

Once the layouts and designs are agreed on, the Designer typically works with fellow professionals from Architects to Electrical engineers to help implement this idea. An Interior Designer may also need to produce an estimated total cost of the job, and typically supervises the actual decoration of the interior structure, selecting the appropriate finishings, fittings, accessories and other fixtures and finishing touches.

  • BTEC National Certificate and Diploma course in Art and Design, or an ABC Diploma in Interior Design
