 No matter whether you are a creative person or among those folks who dotes and appreciate creativity and dreams of creating or owning their own interior ‘’designed spaces’’, you have bumped into the right post!

While conversing, with several homemakers as well as with those creative minds who wished to become qualified interior designers, I had noticed that the picture being sketched out regarding interior design in general as well as a business or profession is slightly a hazy one. And there are numerous facts that need to be known precisely for more transparency, practicality in the approach and productivity. Read on to know more!

What’s In The Name -  Does Title Matter In The Interior Design Business Plan?

The first fact to know and pay attention to is the title that is being displayed on websites and visiting cards under an individual’s name. Well if you are wondering what’s in the name!? Then with a snap of a finger, I would say ‘’Everything”. Big think!

The titles such as the Interior consultant, interior designer, interior decorator, interior contractors, interior architect, architect, landscape designers, landscape architect, light designers, color consultants, furniture designer are professions that involve various tasks which are more often than not, very far apart! Still the title matters due to the reasons listed below.

Time For Reality Check - Qualification Versus Passion

The business that revolves around massive structures, one must know how serious the work needs to be taken, be it the matter of any structural changes or material quality. Not doing so can only cause hazards, resulting in death, injury or loss of property moreover lead to legal penalties!

Though interior designing sounds exciting, it is a challenging job and anyone with a formal qualification from a recognized organization could only apply for a job. This is where the title is given emphasis on. For instance, homeowners shouldn’t expect interior decorators and contractors to make any structural changes, as their job primarily involves only decorative elements. An individual with a  ‘’decorator’’ tag doesn’t need an extensive education or a fancy degree and may just have a good eye and a passion for the job. Hence, it is vital to know the exact job description before contacting a professional.

An Interior Design Professional Can Specialize

With all these titles for interior design professionals, one can know that it is not necessary that each and every interior designer designs everything!  They can specialize. As in, they can choose any specific categories, for instance, residential design, kitchen design, commercial space design, office design, and even subcategorize down to details like living room design, furniture design, modular kitchen set design and so on.

Interior Designers  Can Work With  Anyone Even From A Different City

 All thanks to the internet and social platforms! Digital media has played a huge role in connecting people from around the world and by now it is definitely a known fact. As being viewers of Plan N Design you would know that getting decor inspirations is just a few clicks away. Similarly reaching out to professionals on such platforms for consultation is even possible. So instead of assuming that one could not get their work done from an interior professional based in another city, just get in touch with them to know about the possibilities! 

Interior consultants and those who specialize as color consultants can work with clients from different cities. Inquire before ending up with a conclusion as some designers are willing to travel, some have offices in other locations and some interior design freelancers are willing to work entirely long distance.

Interior Design An Expensive Affair

Everything that sparkles isn't gold. The alluring images that splash on various magazines and websites show the glamour involved in the profession, but it is mistaken that an interior designer just works around fabric and paint samples and quotes a high amount for the same. In fact, it is just a small part of what these professionals do!

An interior designer is someone who plans, research, coordinates, and manages projects that include conceptual development, space planning, site inspections, communication, construction management, and execution of the design. And therefore, an interior design professional could help one in creating a fab space and hence the ‘’expensive affair’’ is worth to be tried out.
