    You need to be good at drawing and art.
    Also, you need to make sure that you meet all the criteria for becoming an interior designer, which are as follows:

    1) You must have a bachelor's degree in art/design or architecture from an institute of repute in India. It is not mandatory for institutes outside India but it weeds out candidates who don’t take schools seriously enough to complete graduation
    2) You must score well on your entrance examination
    3) You should also show proficiency in a foreign language like English or German 4
    ) You can have two years of professional experience designing interiors before taking the exam for EIDB certification
    5) After your exams and getting certified by the board

    India is the largest country in the world with a population of over 1.3 billion, which means there are many people to be occupied in both lucrative and entry-level positions. Interior designers work with clients to determine function and aesthetic needs, then plan, decorate and maintain the inside of one or more rooms or whole buildings.
    According to Ross Collard of The New York Times Company, "The path to an interior design career is not an easy one. But those who succeed seem to have a natural talent for color coordination combined with deep understanding of architecture." And although Collard does mention some schools that specialize in Interior Design degrees among US colleges -many aspiring designers continue their education taking courses at higher levels.

    One way to become an interior designer in India is to get a degree in the field. There are some creative programs available around the country that can be completed with evening and weekend classes meaning it's possible to work full-time while getting your education. These courses can typically be taken over two years, but there are also part-time options as well.
    Looking for other possibilities? Think about internships or on-the-job training, which might offer more flexibility so you can continue to do what you're doing now, only better!

    The key to entering this industry is to have an education in interior design. And it’s incredibly easy these days, there are many colleges offering degrees and diplomas which can be done from the comfort of your living room while working full time or being a stay at home parent. India has some well known schools for such course but financing and other resources may pose hurdles. The cost of studying in India ranges on average between Rs 50,000 a year depending on how expensive your locality is.
    Fixing things up at home does not constitute being an interior designer though; if you do not have any formal training, its advisable to get yourself registered with the Council of Interior Designers of India (CIDI).

    There are different ways to enter this field: getting formal education in the subject, interning at an established firm, or starting their own design office. in order to land a job as an interior designer or architect. Degrees vary depending on whether you want to study architecture and design for the built environment or simply interior decoration and design. If you just want to work with private homes and businesses, then a degree in Interior Design will be sufficient but if you want to also explore opportunities with urban planning like Town Planning then it is recommended that you take up a dual course like Architecture- Planning from NID (National Institute of Design) that has both disciplines together.

    First you would want to get a degree in interior design. Next, it's important to work for any major firm or on projects that are well-known in the industry and as such will serve as strong portfolio pieces. These can be found by reaching out to other professionals in the field and asking them who has great projects–this way you become known by more people and increase your chances of landing a job.
    Don't just think that all companies will hire someone with little experience because they're cost-effective–not true at all! They may be willing to put up with some inexperience early on, but there's no guarantee so NEVER do anything before you have an actual offer from the company first.
