Space for residential and commercial places is shrinking due to rapid urbanization. This shift from rural to urban invites for professional help to make the living and working space more comfortable, aesthetical, serene, enjoyable and useful. Earlier, it was the task of an architect to do the entire exteriors along with the interiors of a house, office or any other functionally useful edifice. Now-a-days people have become more and more particular about the designs and the layout of the living or working area. This has led to an increasing requirement for professionals in interior designing.

As an interior designer, you will be trained to design exclusive furniture, artefacts, false ceilings, kitchen designing, fittings, civil work and so on besides learning managerial skills. With the help of a course in interior designing, you will come out with a professional designing solution that is efficient, eye-catching and at the same time safe.

The basic job of an interior designer is to make optimal utilization of available space. Further, you have to make the space more functional and in accordance with the taste and budget of the client. Besides visualizing and conceptualizing the designs for new structures, interior designers also plan the interiors of existing structures that are undergoing renovation or extension.

The popularity of interior designing as a discipline is not restricted to urban cities but it has rapidly spread to small town and cities across the nation. This is largely because of the changing lifestyle of people, globalization and their wish to customize their residence with the help of an expert who can understand their taste and preference.

Various exciting avenues await after completing this course, as an assistant designer, consultant, freelance interior designer, 3D visualizer, designs and accessories for the people and society. It is an ideal combination of design, technology and management.
