There are many schools that teach the art of interior
design. Not only in the U.S., but also worldwide.
There are even at home Internet courses available to
help you get your degree in interior design. New York,
Chicago and San Francisco all have top interior design
programs at their colleges.
And what better place to attend a school than where
trends are hot and where you can get a challenging and
comprehensive curriculum that gives you experience
with both residential and contract design.
As with many career subjects, there are different
degrees available to the interior design student. You
can start with a certificate, move to an associates,
then a bachelors and a masters degree.
Each one is harder to get and takes more time and more
money. But the exciting career you will have waiting
for you when you graduate are well worth every dollar
spent and hour dedicated to the courses.
You can also choose an area of specialty in which you
want to work. It is important however to keep the
options open because one never knows what the job
market will be like.
It is better to know more about more than just one
small specialty. Then you can move to the area where
there are more jobs in demand.
Most people will specialize in either residential or
business interior design though. There are pluses to
all of these, but with residential, you must be keyed
in on your customer and their lifestyle.
You won’t want to design an interior the way you would
want yours. It may not fit your client’s lifestyle.
Even furniture stores have interior designers to help the customers
out with the things that they are in need of. There are many
choices in this field.
Have you thought about this as a way to make a living?
