Do you really think that for an interior designer, designing is all about decorating rooms or buildings? Most of the people think so. There is a lot what interior designers do. It’s not only about decorating rooms or buildings. So let’s see in detail what interior designers actually do
Interior Designer work
In the past, most of the interior designers focused on decorating style and then choosing colours, furniture, floor and window coverings, lighting and art. However, now modern designers are focusing on designing architecture by determining layouts, location of windows, doors, stairs etc.
Interior designers decorate and design the interior spaces of the buildings, rooms. They decide the best colour, furniture, textures & lights to be used inside the building to make it look perfect and beautiful. Interior designers will design the interiors spaces of all kind of buildings from homes to airports, hospitals. Especially, in the case of offices interior designing helps to improve the productivity, sales rate, attract clients, creates a relaxing and peaceful environment and also increase the value of the building.
Role of Interior designer
Most of the designers follow the following process. Firstly, they understand the needs and interest of the client by a personal meeting and get to know what the client wants to do with space. What designs do they prefer?
Secondly, the designer develops the plans by using computer-aided design (CAD) software and then estimate the cost involved in the work. Once after the plan, they showcase it to the customer.
Once the design gets finalized the designer will select the materials, furnishings, flooring, lighting, art and floor covering. The designer also submits the plan to the construction inspector to check whether the plan violates building codes or not. Sometimes the designer will collab with the architect or engineer for structural work.
Finally, after developing the project, the designer meets the customer to check whether it is satisfying or not. If not, the designer makes some necessary changes. This is all that interior designers do in brief.
However, after knowing what interior designers do, you may think it involves stressful work. But there is no such work without stress. If you be as enthusiastic as your first day, you will never get boredom and stressfulness. So start learning to love whatever you do and be passionate about it.
