Being An Interior Designer

Working with clients to create a comfortable and unique atmosphere is part of what makes being an interior designer so rewarding. What else makes this job so interesting? In this blog, Ellecor explains why being an interior designer is such an interesting career path.

Helping Clients Achieve Dreams

As an interior designer, you may be able to give a high level of design input but it is important that you understand your client’s wants and needs. You may be an expert, but this is your client’s home. If they are not happy with a design choice or they seem to be hung up on a decision you have made, it is important that you ask them to communicate their ideas. Interior design is where creativity meets complexity, so it is important that you honor your client’s creativity, while still providing them with a safe and attractive environment.

Space Is Key

While you are designing in any room of a house, it is important to remember that you have a limited area to work with. You need to be aware of furniture dimensions and you need to keep in mind what the space is used for. You shouldn’t put a couch in the middle of a game room. It may seem like common sense, but sometimes the temptations to overcrowd a room are there for beginning designers. Remember that you should also have a good understanding of the structure of the home before you begin working.

There Are Rules

As an interior designer, you will have to be aware of state and local codes. You should keep in mind that you will also need to meet the design constraints that are set in place by these laws and codes. You also need to make sure that you are up to date with the latest design innovations and choices so that you can offer your clients the best of the best.
