.I am a student in standard 12th and very interested in interior decoration. However people tell me its not a high paying job. Can someone please throw light into a career as an Interior decorator.

Details:

  1. wouldn't think it was well paid in India...
  2. Scope of Interior designing: Some types of professions in this fields are Interior Decorators: Interior decorators consult on the use of color schemes, textures, fabrics and decorative materials, light effects, layout and furniture in creating an attractive and functional interior.This is of B2C in nature. Usually all seasoned decorators have their own set of vendors for materials and equipments, This way it becomes a win win for both parties. The end customer has to deal with a single point of contact and for the interior decorator he can up sell his services with the over riding commission on materials.They also offer professional advice for decoration of homes, business workplaces, restaurants, clubs, bars, conference and convention halls, community centres, shop and emporium window displays, set designs, exhibitions, etc. This is B2B in nature. Interior Decorators in Media and Event Management: There are as many as 120 channels on Air in India running 24 hours a day. Most of them have half an hour episodes of series running for years. We have not yet considered the larger picture of Bollywood, Tollywood and all other regional movies, Theatre comes next. All these lines of work constantly demand setups of any amount of situations and the best part of it a background to match the situation. Theatre and set designers work on the conventional stage decor and also for sets of film and TV. Designers work in close coordination with the director's plan for the whole production. In film and TV the main designer is often called the art director who briefs the carpenters, lighting technicians and set dressers and decorators. The number of openings for theatrical designers is very limited. Work is mainly freelance. Also the saga of big fat Indian Weddings have astronomic, star wars styled sets these days all of these again demand a lot of designing beyond conventional decor. Exhibitions are a big hit these days. From job fairs to colossal corporate exhibitions the number of these events is fast increasing. Here designing involves planning of entire exhibition sites to designing individual stands. Exhibition or graphic designers prepare display panels. The designers have to give the show an image within the exhibition itself and the publicity material a corporate identity. Retail Designers / Visual Merchandisers: Work here ranges from the shop window of a typical shop to a special marketing drive. Brands usually have seasoned collections to display. It is the individual's art that lays out the store in the most customer seductive way possible. When the shop becomes a complete design concept, then the appropriate term for it is retail design. What does it take to be an interior designer? Creativity and imagination: There is no replacement to this. It is a very personal business and hence connecting to different genres and different purposes of people needs a constantly thinking mind with a never ending appetite for creative deliveries. Eye for Detail: Works in two ways: One in implementing plans and two in keeping up to date with changing trends. Good Estimations: Estimations are very important. They must have numerical to calculate dimensions etc. The ability to draw important sketches "to scale". Interior designers must be able to think three-dimensionally, visualise their ideas and construct models to demonstrate. Visual sensitivity, colour sense, an idea of lighting and -.. e :oration needs to be developed. Good Communication Skills: As in any other profession, the language you communicate in could well scale the geography of your business. How much Money can you make as an Interior Designer? It depends, to scale it, it is from four digit figures to infinity. As an intern you can barely pay for your travelling but over a period of time your earnings scale radically high depending o your engagement. This field is purely artistic Hence there are no fixed benchmarks in terms of numbers when it comes to the earning part of it. It is in direct relation to your output and very importantly recommendations at times. Still your career would start at an approximate INR 5000 – INR 8000. Over the years one makes more as work is per project. In addition to professional services Interior designers also make huge margins on the materials they recommend.
