Helping you find a career as an Interior designer

Interior Designers are in charge of making a space beautiful and functional. They help clients choose the colour scheme that would best suit their desired look for a space as well as materials, lighting and furniture.

They have to be aware of inspection regulations. For example, certain house features – like the fireplace – could be grade listed, meaning they cannot be removed or changed due to safety regulations. A good interior designer will need to be able to design around such features.

An Interior Designer can be employed for different projects including home design or set and film design.
