Interior designers VS Interior decorator

An interior designer is a scientist of aesthetics and architecture. They possess a fair knowledge of interior works like wall cladding, flooring, furniture and fenestrations. Their objective is to make a space functional, safe and beautiful. Interior design entails portfolios like planning and designing with the objective of effective space management. Many times terms like interior designer and interior decorator get used interchangeably. In reality, both of them denote two different professions. The interior designers are concerned with the functionality and mechanical layout of the space. On the other hand, interior decorator work stays focused on the aesthetics of the space.
The major key point for an interior designer while working on a project is local building regulations, fire safety, efficiency, functionality, accessibility, sound transmission and acoustics. Sometimes the designer then takes up the work of a decorator and engage in decor and aesthetical upgrading. Also, the profession goes beyond selecting a colour palette and decor items. It deals with complexities of documentation, regulations, sustainability and communication with various stakeholders of the industry. Additionally, interior designers keep themselves updated with the latest trends in sanitation and technology to enable updated design for your interiors. Thus, we advised using interior designers help for your dream project of an office or house to design the best possible outcome for your space.
