An Interior Designer plays a fundamental role in actually envisioning and creating the interiors of a place which could be a home, an office, a school, a hotel, restaurant, retail or commercial space and the works. So, for a student to completely metamorphose to an Interior Designer, there is a lot of awareness and talent building, fostering of thoughts and ideas, reading, being aware of the current design trends, popular requests and also understanding what individual clients’ seek and to offer customized design solutions that would suit individual preferences, tastes and requirements. This comes only with practice and as you gain experience and the know-how.
Most students of Interior Design learn on-the-job. In fact, practical training and interning is as much relevant as going through the machinations of what the course offers. A strong, hands-on approach, understanding of form, structure, context, and material is also another aspect.
