What do interior designers do?
Interior designers can be many things – artists, project managers, purchasing agents and more. Some interior design roles differ based on experience level and skill set.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, interior designers do the following:
- Searching for and bidding on new projects
- Determining client goals and requirements for projects
- Considering the use of space and how people move through it
- Sketching design plans and incorporating electrical and partitions
- Specifying materials, furnishings and fixtures
- Creating project timelines and cost estimates
- Placing material orders and overseeing the installation of design elements
- Overseeing construction and coordinating with contractors to make sure projects go according to plan
- Visiting the site after project completion to ensure client satisfaction
Spending most of their time on job sites, interior designers partner with architects, engineers, and construction crews to make sure building codes and inspection regulations are followed.
