Interior Design as a Profession (read more)
Interior designers create aesthetic and functional designs for living environments as well as a multitude of commercial spaces such as hospitals, hotels, offices and homes to name a few. Through education, examination and experience an interior designer works with
- life safety and building codes
- sustainable and environmental issues
- basic construction and mechanical systems.
The interior designer uses skills in space planning, problem solving, contract document preparation and material selection while working with professionals such as architects, engineers and building contractors.
An interior designer has a tremendous opportunity to impact individuals where they work and live whether it is a LEED Platinum building in New York or a condo in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward.
