An interior designer is someone who works with a client to create aesthetic rooms and spaces. Clients range from homeowners to large corporations. The spaces and rooms interior designers create are equally varied, ranging from simple indoor and outdoor home environments to hotel lobbies and lavish mansions. No matter the size, every designer works to create spaces that are attractive yet functional. Spaces must also be safe while meeting the specific needs of the client.
Interior designers are primarily independent contractors who must build a client base. In some instances, designers will work for a larger firm. In either case, designers must excel in order to build a positive reputation in the industry and secure future work.
