LOVING THE LOOK - THE BEST THINGS ABOUT BEING AN INTERIOR DECORATOR
The places we live and work need to be more than just functional: they should also be visually pleasing. A drab, messy space contributes to low feelings and equally low productivity. However, it is not easy to simply throw together different elements into a successful whole.
Interior decorators are professionals who specialize in creating the perfect environment for their clients. If you have a passion for design and yearn to craft lovely and appealing surroundings, interior decoration may be the perfect career for you.
You Continually Improve Your Sense of Style
Have you ever walked into a home or office and thought, “This place would be so much better if they had gone in the opposite direction,” or “It would be so much easier to relax here if they had chosen a different colour”? Do you then wish you could approach the owner, voice your thoughts, and have the opportunity to make your vision a reality?
If you are the type of person who spent a great deal of time designing your own perfect living space, you can share those talents with the world. The more you exercise your artistic senses, the more fine-tuned and inspired the results.
You Decorate More than Just Homes
People automatically think of homes when the subject of interior decorators comes up. However, homes are just the beginning! Interior decorators use their talents anywhere people live or work. Think about all of the possibilities if you decorated a department store. How about a restaurant, a spa, or even a yacht? You will have numerous opportunities to let your imagination run wild!
You Regularly Meet New People
It definitely helps to be a people person if you choose this role. Before any interior decorator begins their work, they meet with the client and find out what they like and don’t like. The more open the communication, the better the results. If you love meeting new people and running ideas by them, you are halfway there.
You Frequently Experience Satisfaction
There are several fields where workers receive creative satisfaction, but interior decorators enjoy it on a regular basis. You establish a plan, locate the components, and bring your design into existence. It is also the sort of eye-catching creativity that can regularly lead to more job offers.
Think about the enjoyment and creative satisfaction you got from working on your own home—now imagine a job that allows you to experience those feelings on a regular basis. Very appealing!
Many interior decorators also work independently and enjoy the work and lifestyle perks that come from being their own boss.
