Interior design is the science and art of enhancing the internal appearance of a building space. It sometimes includes transforming the external parts of a building in order to achieve an environment that is aesthetically conducive. The interior designer researches, plans, coordinates, and then manages the project itself. The interior design discipline itself includes space planning, conceptual development, programming, site inspections and stakeholder communication including design execution.

The interior design of a building can be used to describe the behaviors and desires of a people, through the creation of functional spaces in the building. The interior designer and the decorator are two entities that work together to achieve a harmonious touch to the whole agenda.

However, there is also a difference between the designers and the decorators. The interior designers can do all their design work including decoration, but the decorators do not do the design work. Their only mandate is to install furnishes and décor such aa a wall art, as the designers instruct.


Interior designer

The interior designer assumes more emphasis on functional design, planning, and efficient use of the available space in comparison to interior decoration. The interior designer can undertake projects including the arrangement of the layout spaces in a building. The projects would need an appropriate understanding on technical requirements such as acoustics, lighting and door positioning.

Although the designer has the capacity to create the space layout, they may not necessarily alter load-bearing walls without the approval of the design by the structural engineer. The interior designers work cohesively together with engineers, contractors and architects.

The designers must have necessary expertise and experiences in this field, in order to make interior environments that are safe, functional. Their knowledge also helps them to work in tandem with building codes and regulations. The design goes far beyond the installation of furnishings and color palettes. They also use their knowledge in development of construction documents, healthcare regulations, occupancy loads and even sustainable design principles.

Designers also coordinate and manage professional services like electrical, mechanical, and life safety to ensure that people live, work, and learn in a conscious environment that remains pleasing to the eye.

The designers may want to specialize and then develop knowledge in specific areas or on a given interior design, such as commercial design, residential design, hospitality design, universal design, healthcare design, furniture design, exhibition design, and even spatial design.

The interior design discipline remains creative and is constantly evolving, though it remains vague and indistinct to the public. The interior design is not necessarily an artistic field, but relies on research from the other fields. The reliance equips an individual with appropriate understanding of how the environment influences people’s lives.

The use of color in Interior Design

Color is a powerful tool predominantly used in decoration as well as in interior design purposes. It involves the art of composing, and coordinating colors. Color knowledge helps in the creation of stylish schemes on both the interior and exterior architecture of any building or space.

It is an essential requirement for the interior designers to acquire an understanding in the use of colors. The interior designers should also know the psychological effects of color on human behavior. Their knowledge should also extend to understanding the meaning of colors and their use in the different situations and locations. The meaning of colors and their use guides in the creation of appropriate combinations that are attractive and appealing to the eyes.

A combination of different colors can eventually result in either a negative or positive impact on the observer. The use of great colors makes the room and space feel either cheerful, calm or comfortable for use. Colors and combinations can either make a tiny room look large or small. Therefore, it is the role of the interior designer to choose appropriate colors for any given space in such a way that people would want to look and feel the building and or the space.
