    They do. Preparing for installation, planning the new site to be designed, purchasing materials and tools can sometimes take interior designers away from home for months at a time. Furthermore, many clients need their opinions on new designs after work has begun so they often find themselves on an airplane or driving cross country to provide their services. This is true even if they are designing one room in addition to where they live because these trips will ensure that the design reflects your personal tastes while also promoting efficiency in your space use.

    It's one of their many perks! Do interior designers travel? They certainly do. With so much interest in design and the home, they spend a lot of time on airplanes! This is great for them because it gives them the opportunity to expand their horizons and learn about other cultures. What better way to understand someone than by seeing how they decorate their own homes? Not only that but there are all sorts of trends in designing outside of Europe and North America that we can't ignore just based on proximity or airfare prices. There has been a strong movement towards less Western fixtures combined with more natural materials and bigger, simpler designs in Asia - tremendous inspiration for anyone interested in creating an authentic feeling space.

    Interior designers will travel for work, if their client is internationally based. But these types of projects are not as common unless the blog is also international. If you want an interior designer that can handle your project no matter where you live, then contacting one of the top companies to create a custom design just for you might be your best option. Or, look into doing it yourself by hiring someone overseas--because it sounds like what you're after is quite specific and doesn't require help with interface or research? A quick Google search reveals some possible options--check out sites like Freelancer or Upwork to find professionals in your city of choice, if they provide those services.

    Yes. Some national associations require three years of apprenticeship prior to licensing, and there are often rigorous tests that interior designers will be required to pass before they're considered qualified. Answering the opposite question is also acceptable. For example, "No, interior designers work locally." The word "local" can vary depending on context, so it's best to specify what you mean if someone asks for clarification. When answering questions about an occupation or profession, it's important always to use language that speaks directly to the person who is asking the question ('professional') instead of language used by your organization or industry that may not speak directly with a potential employer or career seeker ('interior designer').

    Interior designers do travel if they specialize in a particular region. For example, a s himalayan interior designer would need to visit the Himalayas for this task so he or she can more accurately design with the specific geographical nuances of that place. In all other situations though, an individual may hire an interior decorator from various parts of the world to complete a project on their behalf. The only drawback, as opposed to working with someone locally who would have more intimate knowledge of your likes and dislikes is that some decorators do not come personally to inspect your work space but will instead rely solely on photographs and emailed plans emailed them by you into order for them to prepare their estimates before submitting a bid.

    Yes. An interior designer's job is to see over the entire gamut of a client's project, from concept and design through construction and management phases. This means that they are often intimately involved in organization, coordination, management, supervision, installation and maintenance activities - not just for furnishings but also mechanical installations such as heating/cooling systems. This work has them travel to various parts of the country or world on a regular basis.
