Interior designers can assist make structural changes

If you are after structural changes to your space, an interior designer is your go-to. Whether you need to open up a wall or any renovation work, an interior designer can help organise contractors and project manage a project.

Architects have an important job: building structures that will fulfill people’s needs while being structurally safe and sound. But here’s the thing: you can create the greatest building in the world, but nobody’s going to use it if the inside is a mess. Interior design is an integral part of architecture,


focused on creating interior spaces that make the building both functional and aesthetically appealing. Still, we have different kinds of buildings, so it makes sense that we have different kinds of interior designs.


One of the biggest arenas for designers is residential design, or the interiors of spaces in which people live. This can include houses, apartments, condos, and anywhere else where people reside. The architect may build the house, but it’s the designer’s job to make it a home.

Creating a Livable Space

Residential interior designers coordinate the interiors of homes, which means that their job is very different than someone who designs something like a bank or a commercial center. Interior design is always a matter of balancing aesthetic and function,


so we need to consider the primary function of a residence: it’s a place where people live. Therefore, a residential designer’s primary focus is creating a livable space.


This means that residential designs needs to be comfortable and usable. Think of what you use your home for. It’s where you relax, cook, and eat. It may be where you entertain close friends or small groups of guests. You may have a home office for work. Residential needs tend to be focused on smaller groups and more relaxed atmospheres than you’d find in a commercial building, and the interior designer needs to ensure that the colors,


lighting, furniture, appliances, temperature, and general layout meet these needs. In other words, the interior needs to be livable.

Although the foregoing sections have mentioned different kinds of interiors, in reference to both aesthetic and physical components of design, there has been no specific discussion of different design considerations for varying interiors.


The aesthetic criteria suggested in earlier sections are subject to considerable variation, depending on the kind of interior involved.
Residential interiors


Residential interiors are obviously much freer and much more personal for both the interior designer and the occupants than other types of interiors. In fact, homes that have been designed unconsciously by creative occupants without any standard decorative rules are often the most beautiful ones. Certain planning and functional considerations are constant in any residence, and, although these too may be ignored by the occupant who wishes to be strongly individualistic, they can provide at least basic guidelines.
