is always useful to define a concept, an idea, or a person before we enter into
any serious discussion about him/her. Since the interior design career is
relatively new in India, although well established in the United States.
A professional interior designer is a person prepared for education, experience,
and review, and will now address several issues.
1. Identify, research, and
creatively solve problems related to the roles and efficiency of the interior
2. Performs services related to interior spaces,
including programming, design analysis of space layout, and aesthetics, using
advanced knowledge of interior design, equipment, materials, and furniture.
3. Prepares sketches and
documentation relating to the design of interior spaces to enhance and protect
the health, protection, and well-being of the public. Role of an Interior
interior designer is not a minor decorator, but a professional in the true
sense. Interior design is not only an art, but it is also a science and
technology, and the interior designer includes the fields of architect,
engineer, psychologist, graphic designer, furniture designer, decorator, and a
host of other occupations.
profession of interior design is considered by the beginner to be as glamorous
as the profession of advertising and film-making. But this glamour is just part
of the whole thing. The career involves the description and analysis of
problems, the preparation of space, the collection and specification of all
interior furniture and finishes, and the coordination of all installations. All
of this includes professional knowledge of design, rules, zoning laws, fire
regulations, product technology, production processes, product origins, and
awareness of social, cultural, and religious traditions.
interior designer had to possess a wide range of abilities and artistic talent
though important, is only one of them. There are other characteristics an
interior designer should possess to do justice to his profession and clients.
1. Appreciation of Beauty
The ability to
appreciate the beauty in everything, which will help the designer to use
unthought of, supposedly inexpensive materials and inane ideas in his work.
Some designers remove faults in their companion projects, they should not judge
other projects by their thoughts.
2. Psychological Insights
To understand the
needs of a client, and the understanding to elicit the best work according to
their capacity from the people employed on a project, and to go beyond the
requirement sheet makes the designer successful. It is seeing the soul rather than
the body of a person/project.
3. Analysis of the problem
ability to think about the problem, taking into consideration the needs, the personality of the client, his socio-cultural background and his budget, the
materials and the work available, what makes a good designer.
skill of Stubbornness is human. But to adapt one’s views and design approach to
customer needs, budget restrictions, unnecessary demands, and other
circumstances, turn a challenging situation into a workable one and turn a mediocre
designer into a good one.
5. Visual Communications
design is a field of vision. So whatever the designer needs to convey to his
customers, it should be visual. The image should be equivalent to 5000 words.
But instead of explaining the interior, it is easier to show the client’s
6. Meeting the
time for it, and then it becomes pointless. So hitting the deadline is just as
critical as doing a good job. If you can meet your deadline, you will be
recognized as a trustworthy and efficient designer. Clients are going to be
attracted to you, and your popularity and credibility are going to grow in your
7. Working with
In your career,
you will meet all sorts of clients, family members, and relatives, vendors,
contractors, employees, unconnected people. Some won’t like you, some won’t
want something you don’t approve of, some won’t like your face. As we have
shown with the flexibility that we can accommodate all sorts of people, bending
was required to be aggressive when you feel it is appropriate will smooth the
path to a good career.
8. Expertise of
everything has become a business, because everything is general to generate
revenue. It includes meeting and informing clients; collecting the right people
to carry out a project in good touch with vendors, making good use of good
quality, response rates and timely delivery of products, getting good work from
home workers, and maintaining proper accounts in compliance with the laws of
the land. If you do not possess these qualities, the practice will suffer.
9. Quality of

is outstanding when it is performed precisely and details are not lost sight
of. Take fixing a hinge, for example. The door jamb (accuracy) should be at
right angles and should be made of aluminium/brass/chrome plated /
stainless steel, taking into consideration the local climate (details).
means the search to know and understand the process of a thing and to engage
oneself in it with all the attention, interest, and focus. These
characteristics are important for success in any sector and, more so, in the sector of interior design, which is the newest and ever-changing career.
of the Interior Design
person as an interior designer has a duty towards his own
- The Client
- Society in general
this essential responsibility is, and must always be, concerning his
occupation, and it overrules all other kinds of responsibility.
a designer sacrifices his or her professional interest for the sake of a
client, he or she entertains in business, because in business, ‘the customer is
always right’ and the quality of the product or service takes its back seat. If
he is more loyal to the contractor than to his profession, he is dealing,
because traders do not care about the needs of the client but only hold the
needs of the dealer above all in their minds. If he cares more for suppliers
than others, he does business because, in trade, the product is the all and the
other things that do not matter. As far as its duty to society is concerned, it
will certainly say that this is the most complicated problem, and we will deal
with it in another chapter later.
the above discussion, you must have grasped the most important explanation of why
your primary duty must be to the profession only.
question now arises why is interior design a profession and not a business, or
trade. An interior designer shall offer his consulting and advisory services in
exchange for a fee or salary, as the practice is referred to as a career. And
he is not disturbed in his dealings by the consideration of character, benefit,
popularity, fear, or any other kind of pressure.
hope you all got some detail about the responsibility of an interior designer,
there is not an exact thumb rule to follow but if you are not following these
rules in your practice then you should follow these rules to set up your
profession on track.
