    No. A degree in interior design is not required to get started with the profession. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a majority of people who work in this field have only had some higher education, or even none at all (although formal training is recommended). There are, however, university programs which focus exclusively on the design and use of interiors for residential complexes that can be helpful to those interested in starting a career in this area. For example, Bovard College's Interior Design program offers an extensive list classes which cover topics from perspectives such as art history, interior architecture and design theory.

    A bachelors degree in interior design is very common. On the other hand, knowing how to decorate as a skill is not uncommon at all and it's been considered an art for centuries.
    The profession of interior design falls somewhere between art and science and requires knowledge of several fields such as architecture, building codes, construction methods, ergonomics, drafting/drawing skills that are usually learned through formal training in one or more college degree programs. Interior designers may have many different education backgrounds with credentialing coming from technical colleges to four-year university degree programs. To make sure the person you hire has appropriate credentials please ask them about their years of education, courses they have taken or degrees obtained before starting work on your project.

    Interior design is not typically offered as one of the degrees on offer from any university, although many institutions will offer or allow accredited courses in the field.
    The study of interior design includes analyzing social, economic, historic and spatial factors that affect people's lives and have to be considered when designing spaces. It is also important to understand the desired effect for a space; how large should it be? What colour scheme will look well? How do people use furniture and enter doors? And so on. These considerations combine with an expert understanding of what materials are available to get very practical pointers into creating an aesthetically pleasing home environment. The most effective designers might even consider aspects like environmental sustainability - appropriate light levels in rooms etc.

    Yes. Interior design is a form of art and creativity-based profession that requires previous training. There are many colleges in the country that offer interior design degrees to students who wish to work in this field, as well as other academic institutions outside of the United States.
    I hope you found this helpful!

    No, but it often is a postgraduate degree for architecture.
    If you want to break into the interior design industry as an art director or architect, then earning a degree in architecture and formal schooling in furniture history are key prerequisites to your future success. However, if you are just curious about what it's like being one of the top five architects in country like Michelle Kaufmann, then there is no need for getting accredited by an institution of higher education at all because Interior Designers don't usually have any formal education and rely on their own training instead.
