Interior Design Careers
For the intrepid
interior designer there are many interior design careers that
you can choose from. You don't necessarily need to go into any
specific path just because you like interior designing but if
you want to pursue a future in interior design then you will
have to decide what you would ideally like to do.
For instance you can choose
from things like home interior design careers to office
interior design careers. Or you can stay as a general interior
designer or you also have the option to specialize in one
particular branch of interior designing, like southwestern
interior decorating or modern interior decorating.
You could specialize in doing
only kitchens or maybe only in children's interior designing.
As you can see the field is a vast one and you need only to
choose which path you want to wander down. Everything else that
comes afterwards will only be able to aid you in going further
in your chosen field of interior design careers.
If you choose to specialize in
a particular branch of interior design though there are a few
pitfalls you might want to be aware of. With the main one being
that when you limit your scope for advancement, you're also
limiting the number of clients who will come to you. Not every
one wants a western themed house or would love having a cactus
garden sticking up in the middle of their yard.
However there's also the
upside to specializing in one particular branch, and that's the
fact that you will also be able to make a name for yourself and
become one of the top few with your particular experience. As
with everything in life this comes with a price and this one
isn't that cheap either. You'll have to work almost twice as
hard as the normal interior designer and you might get far more
dry spells where you go without getting any work in your
Specializing in the broader
spectrum of interior design careers like home interior design
or office interior design will generate more clients for you
and will also get you more work in the long run. You'll also be
able to get more experience under your belt in the various
different fields of interior designing without having to
necessarily specialize in them. Whatever you decide though know
that there are many interior design careers available for you
to choose from.
