tradespeople, interior decorators all fill different role in this industry the
purpose of this video is to identify the scope of interior designers work and
explain the details of the knowledge needed and the work involved. documentation must be prepared specifying the details on all aspects
such as elevation, ceiling, electrical plan, finishes etc to make clear the
needs before the construction commences safety is one of the most important
things to consider when it comes to design study and knowledge of building
code, fire safety, demising walls fire rating, exit requirement are all needed.
ultimately offices, restaurants, bars all need to be safe. interior designer must
have detailed knowledge of all these requirements for people safety. space planning and universal design are very important too. an interior designer must
consider so many details such as size of the hallway, washrooms, emergency lighting, occupancy load and a lot more in general accessibility and functionality of this space is critical when creating and designing a project. the selection of
interior material that is morally and cosmetically Pleasant but also durable

consider very important factors such as the slip resistance of the floor wall
finishes that needs to be fire rated air quality and VOC of the material and
they make sure they meet the health regulation and the codes now our society

designers planning a project they must consider a lot of things such as indoor air
quality, bringing natural light to the space, using more natural material,

work on a design that leads to a greener tomorrow earlier on I mentioned architects and interior decorators who playing an
important part in the home construction industry and I would like to take a few
moment to explain the differences between their roles. an interior decorator
can furnish and decorate the space but they’re not eligible like an interior
designer to provide detail of space planning construction drawing and other
tasks outlined in this video interior designers too have limitation to their
eligibility in certain situations any project that is more than three floors
and each floor is larger than six thousand four hundred fifty eighty
square feet or six hundred square meter requires architectural skills in those
situation an architect required to be involved and usually they work with an
interior designer in such a project this is the perfect career for anyone who has
keen sense of design visualization skills and the ability to create and
imagine this space all in all and interior designers aims to create

  1. Thank you for explaining the job of an interior designer sooo well. I just made a video explaing the difference between interior design and interior decor . People seem to always get those two confused.

  2. am definitely considering to choose interior design as my major in college but I am very confused on whether it suited me or not. I have a high sense of art, especially when it comes to decorating a room. I am just wondering do interior designers decorate rooms along with the points you mentioned? Can an interior designer be interior decorators at the same time?

  3. I have always loved concepts of remodeling spaces in homes & I thought interior design was the closest to what I want to study to get there. I would like to know if you think it’ll be a good choice for me to choose this career to do remodeling. I’ve watched multiple of your videos & they’re all so helpful.
