Interior design is the creative field through which you get an opportunity to showcase your talent and creativity on a completely blank canvas, with the pride of creating someone’s home.
It also requires certain technical aspects to be considered ‘complete’. It is a truly versatile field that allows you to be creative, social, as well as technical. And the field of interior designing is constantly evolving with technological advancements in design.
Furthermore, interior design also enables you to gain practical exposure and see the dream canvas you painted, turn into reality through someone’s home. Discussions with clients regarding material selections and practical applications of innovative designs help you understand the implementation of your creative ideas better.
