Professional interior designers have the education and experience necessary to oversee the complex tasks of designing and managing the construction of interior environments.

Whether designing a private residence, commercial office, retail environment, recreation facility, or public institution, interior designers coordinate with other trades, suppliers, and licensed practitioners to ensure the safe, successful completion of a project. Professional interior designers are obligated to adhere to local building codes and accessibility guidelines.
