What is Interior Designing?

Interior design is a specific specialization of three-dimensional design and the work has much in common with architecture and planning. The modern collective term for interior and exterior design is “spatial design”. The majority of designers work for commercial and industrial organizations and they tend to work within particular fields, requiring appropriate skills and technical knowledge.

Interior designing, interior decoration or decor is a practice concerned with anything that is found inside a space – walls, windows, doors, finishes, textures, light, furnishings and furniture. All of these elements are used by interior designers to develop a functional, safe, and aesthetically pleasing space for a building’s user.

They plan the spaces of almost every type of building including: hotels, corporate spaces, schools, hospitals, private residences, shopping malls, restaurants, theaters, and airport terminals. Today, interior designers must be attuned to architectural detailing including: floor plans, home renovations, and construction codes.
Interior Designer should be aware of the change in trends and keep up with the latest styles. The objective of designing space is to achieve functionality and to create the right kind of atmosphere for the right budget.
