    To be an interior designer, one needs to have a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from an Accredited Institution as well as 2-5 years work experience. An internship is not necessary, but it can serve as an asset. A good portfolio is essential to land that first job and to keep progressing up the career ladder. A career path for interior designers may include working primarily with residential clients before branching into commercial buildings or corporations to design executive offices and meeting spaces, among other things. You may also elect to specialize in a certain field such as lighting fixtures or finishes, which could have their own subset of schooling and requirements for licensure.

    Becoming an interior designer requires a bachelor's degree in design or interior architecture from a school of art and design. An accomplished designer will likely demonstrate the following traits and skills: good communication, logical thinking, creative problem solving, teamwork skills, excellent time management abilities, resourcefulness with materials available on hand. Their portfolio typically displays creativity in both execution (design) and presentation (media). Many potential competitors in this field are creatives- by which I mean designers and architects who think like artists. For example they might be inspired by light or space rather than client objectives.

    Becoming an interior designer can take several years of education and work experience, but the field is rapidly changing. Interior design courses have been popping up faster than ever in middle schools and high schools. At these institutions, architectural drawing skills are taught alongside linear algebra and economics. Some colleges offer 4 year professional programs for those who want to pursue careers in interior development specifically. With this degree you will need approximately two to four internships or apprenticeships to gain actual hands-on experience before career prospects begin to become evident as well as a number of different practicum classes where sketches will be created by hand rather than on CAD software programs like SketchUp or AutoCAD that are popular among most designers today.

    First, it's important to point out that an interior designer is not the same as a decorator. A decorator focuses solely on aesthetics and isn't involved in the design process or how the finished space functions. Interior designers are professionals who have training and expertise in both design and function. There are many different schooling options for becoming an interior designer, ranging from four year graduate degrees to two year associate degree programs which can lead to either a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) or Associates Art & Design (AAD). Regardless of where you enter school, there will be courses covering topics like historic style trends, sustainable furniture choices, 3D modeling.
