What is Scope of Interior Design in India?
Nowadays not only the homeowners but showroom owners, doctors, banks, educational institutions, government offices, airlines, and shopping malls need professional interior designers. Some want to give their premises a thematic look, others stress on aesthetically pleasant surroundings. People like the imaginative look, vibrant colors, brightness, metallic patterns and artistic designs. So the people with flair, knowledge, and good communication skills are highly demanded these days.
Interior Design (ID) is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after professions in India today. With city dwellers increasing day by day and available living spaces shrinking correspondingly, efficient use of the available space has become a grave necessity. And owing to the increased standard of living in India and the new mindset of the younger generation, interior design has become an independent field of its own, coming out of the shadows of architecture and civil engineering.
Currently, there is a need for 100000 interior designers in India alone, combining freelance projects as well as the jobs available in architectural and construction firms, and furniture companies. If you are one of those design aspirants who want to take up the interior design as a career, here’s a list of things you must and should know about this popular design domain.
Rather than saying that there is a great scope for interior designers in India, we could rephrase that to ‘there is a grave scarcity of interior designers in India’. As mentioned before, currently there is a need for 100000 interior designers in India alone. The industry is growing at a rate of 20% and is expected to do so until 2018. So if you are planning to take up the interior design as a career now, I would say you are at the right time to shine!
