In the fast pacing world, where urbanisation is taking place rapidly and everyone wants life to be fast track, people at the same time want it to be comfortable. This unanticipated situation calls for the need of professionals to take up most of the tasks such as Wedding planners, Visual Merchandisers and Interior designers.
Earlier, all the work right from construction of a building to its decoration was done by an architect. Interior Designers were hired to design spaces like luxury hotels and bungalows of the elite which were far beyond the reach of majority of the population in India. Nowadays people have become more specific about their requirements and aware about the multiple forms of styling. They hire interior designers to do up spaces like their offices and apartments, big and small.
This has led to an increase in the demand of Interior designers not only in metropolitans but also in small towns and cities across India despite the slowdown in the country’s economy. The basic job of an interior designer is to understand the client’s preference and budget, conceptualise their idea rightly and customize their space accordingly.
Along with creative skills, interest and knowledge, it is equally important for an interior designer to have effective communicative skills to be able to put his ideas across to the client so as to share a good understanding.
Interior design is not like a puzzle that one fixes the pieces and the task is done. It takes great aesthetic sense, architectural understanding and environmental psychology to create a space which is fully utilised yet opulent and has breathing space. Keeping all these aspects in mind, you will surely shine!
