Is it interior design or interior decorating?
This is a question we get a lot. An interior designer is uniquely qualified, and highly educated, to create environments that are safe, functional and beautiful. Interior designers offer more services and are adept at space planning and layout. They understand maximizing spaces and buildings codes to optimize interior functions. Decorators simply adorn an already existing space. Interior designers can decorate, but decorators cannot design. When selecting a designer, make sure to check their credentials and ask for references.
