The spaces that we live, work and play in require creative yet functional and practical minds to give them their character and function. Interior Designers can affect the way we feel, the way we work and so much more with their ability to create inspired surroundings.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Employment of interior designers is expected to increase by 19 percent from 2010 to 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Designers will be needed to respond to consumer expectations that the interiors of homes and offices meet certain conditions, such as being environmentally friendly or more easily accessible.
Although the number of home remodeling projects that use interior designers is related to economic conditions, remodeling of large public spaces and facilities, such as hospitals, hotels and schools, is often funded as part of a long-term project. Companies typically budget money over many years so that they can afford remodeling efforts when necessary, regardless of economic conditions. In addition, as part of creating their corporate image, more companies are expected to take advantage of opportunities to use new furnishing and design concepts to make their interior space easily identifiable.”
