Why is interior designer needed and what is the difference between an interior designer and a carpenter?
Mostly people think or ask why interior designer is needed when carpenter can do the job.
An interior designer takes into consideration client needs, likes and dislikes of colours, patterns and textures, and creates a perfect design to match the taste and suite client needs. An Interior designer also undertakes arranging the basic layout of spaces, acoustics, lighting in order to balance the harmony and to convert the structure into a ‘home’ or ‘office’.
More than the looks of a building, Interior design is about the functionality and aesthetics of a living space. For example, in the hands of a professional interior designer a small apartment can be transformed into a very specious one where as a huge apartment can become less spacious in the hands of a non-professional.
Carpenters do not design. They only execute the work either based on the picture provided by the client or go with the default design without considering the colour combination and space management.
The profession of Interior Design is relatively new, constantly evolving, and often confusing to the public. It is not an artistic pursuit and relies on research from many fields to provide a well-trained understanding of how people are influenced by their environments.
