Just like those who work within it, the interior design industry is creative, innovative, and versatile. In a nutshell, it’s about creating and improving the quality and functionality of a space, but in doing so, there are many other significant layers to the industry.
It’s about using creative and critical thinking to find solutions that, of course, result in an aesthetically pleasing space, but just as importantly: meet health/safety regulations and building codes, meet client needs, and meet industry standards. A well–rounded education and broad skill set are crucial in the industry, as designers must work within many different fields (architecture, graphic design, lighting, and more) and with many different tools (including software for computer–aided design).
While complex and multi–faceted, the industry of interior design is also truly rewarding, as the end products are beautiful, artistic, and functional spaces.
