Interior designing is becoming one of the most sought after careers. With the teeming population in the city and a decline in the available spaces, the efficient use of available space has become necessary. Also, you would like to be commended for your interior designing sense, room decoration and placement of furniture.

If you have considered interior designing as a career, there are some things that you must know.

Interior decoration is different from interior designing: 


There is a clear cut difference between decoration and design. You have to be dexterous with textures, colors, picking and placement of home decor objects. You might get praised for your interior decoration skills but it is not enough in becoming an interior designer.

A flair for design: 

The first step in becoming an interior designer is that one needs to be passionate about color, architecture, spatial arrangements and textiles. This innate flair is a good sign to become an interior designer which is beyond getting compliments for your decoration.

Beyond fabric and fun: 


Fabrics, colors, furniture have a major role to play in interior design together with other creative task which might not seem as fun all the time. You have to have an in depth knowledge about the aesthetics of the field right from the history of the design, the structural integrity of the building, spatial concepts, ergonomics, Computer- aided drawing (CAD) and much more.


Build a portfolio: 


Always keep archives of the job done. For any project you handled, always take pictures to convince the next client of your designs beyond talking about colors and textiles. ‘Action speaks louder than words’ they say.

Be different: 


Interior designing is a very competitive business and one of the keys to success is being distinctive. You have to understand your field better and showcase it in your designs. Always keep yourself abreast with modern architecture, designs and follow the new trend in the market.


Give virtual designing a try:
Hiring a professional interior designer can be done virtually. Thanks to technology that made it possible to telecommunicate designs and innovations through Skype and other available channels.
