Hire a Freelance Interior Designer

An interior designer is a planner who designs the creation or renovation of spaces. These spaces are where we live and work in and spend our everyday lives in. They make interior spaces purposeful and aesthetically appealing while ensuring they are safe, comfortable and able to fulfill a purpose. Thus, interior designers design spaces inside our homes, offices, schools, hospitals and even government buildings. The terms interior decorator and interior designers are often used interchangeably though in reality, they are quite different. Interior designers create optimum functional spaces whereas interior decorators use paint, fabrics and furnishings to change the aesthetics of a space, while keeping in mind its functionality.

What Does an Interior Designer Do?

Interior designers work closely with architects, structural and mechanical engineers, and builders to determine how interior spaces should function, what their aesthetics should be, and how they should be furnished. Interior designers plan the design of both living and commercial spaces. There are many types of interior designers, such as lighting designers, universal designers, and kitchen and bath designers. Interior designers are seen across industries and can be employed by residential and commercial companies both. For commercial companies, they design model spaces, work as urban development planners and may be associated with architectural and construction firms as well.
