The significance of interior designers at our house

First, it’s good to start off with the basics and talk a little bit about what goes into being an interior designer. Interior designers start off with schooling – usually a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. This is normally followed by a period of apprenticeship with an established interior designer, which can last up to two or three years. Depending on state requirements, interior designers may be required to obtain state licensure. They must also pass an examination by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification to even call themselves interior designers. So to say the least, these are professionals who have received years of education, been trained by knowledgeable professionals in the field of interior design, and have successfully passed rigorous testing to even call themselves interior designers. They are qualified experts in their field.
