Is Interior Designer a bad career choice?


As someone with consulting, I get surprised with this question. Interior design is part of construction and real estate business. It is a huge business. Often builders take lot of risk while interior designer is in right place. There is scope for creativity and business value. Also with many years in business there is really good potential to make it big. There are people I know who started career at same time as me, but they grow faster and more steadily because interior designer is in business during first time furnishing and also later when people want a change.

I gave away my contract after talking to the interior designer, not to the marketing person of the vendor.

One major thing that sets apart is the persona and the ability to sell technically. i.e not just being a good designer, but also having business sense and technical selling mindset is crucial.

So generally for everyone to make it big, here is what I recommend apart from core skills of the job:

For your employer you too can generate sales leads. Over years this could lead to your own business. I suggest you to do this. You can build your career on this over the years.


At the least you need to be very aware of your personal brand and be conscious of your online brand.  https://www.midmanager.com/recommends/simplilearn-personal-brand/

If you have option to be interior designer, go for it.

Interior Design is very important profession in Construction and Real Estate Industry. But after starting a Construction Company - Happho and seeing client's requirement for years now, this is what I feel.

  1. Many house owners dismiss a lot of the ideas given by Interior designer as House Interiors is a very personal thing to them. They would like to choose their own colors, designs etc., This is not in General. There are many customers who leave it to the Interior designers also. But this is a trend in Middle and Upper Middle class families is what I see.
  2. Commercial, Institutional Interior Design is on the Rise. With Rising Commercial spaces for growing demands in many sectors, Commercial Interior Design is a very Hot Job these days. If you wish to choose a career out of this, I would advice you to pick either high end residential space or Commercial space as your platform
  3. Interior Design alone will not lead you anyways. Doing a course on Interior design might not be sufficient to survive in this industry unless you have been already working in this industry for long. Gaining project management experience is a must as most customers except interior designers not only to have design skills

These are my 2 cents. When trying for a job take care of the above mentioned points
