Interior design is the process of shaping the experience of interior space, through the manipulation of spatial volume and surface. It is a multi-faceted profession involving the planning, designing and management of the design of interior spaces.

Interior design is a professional service that combines creativity, technical knowledge, and business skills to create an environment that is both functional and appealing.

Interior designers must be able to think spatially, be aware of the latest trends in design and have excellent visualization skills. They must also be able to understand the needs of their clients and be able to work within the constraints of a project budget.

Interior design services can be used for a variety of projects, including homes, offices, retail stores, restaurants and other commercial spaces.

The interior design process typically begins with a client consultation, during which the designer will discuss the client’s needs and requirements. The designer will then create a concept design, which will be presented to the client for approval. Once the concept is approved, the designer will create a detailed design package, which will include floor plans, elevations, furniture and color schemes, and lighting plans.

The final step in the interior design process is the installation of the finished design. Interior designers often work with contractors and other tradespeople to install the finished design.

There are no formal qualifications required to become an interior designer, but most designers have a degree in interior design or a related field. There are also several professional associations and certifications that interior designers can obtain to demonstrate their competence and professionalism.
