What Does an Interior Designer Do?

By NYIAD Interior Design Mentor on July 21st, 2015

The New York Institute of Art and Design offers an online interior design class and because we do, we like to provide free tips for interior designers. Enjoy!

As one of the premier online schools for interior design, we often talk with students and graduates who are already in the field. Our conversations, and tips will be a bit more advanced – how to find clients and market yourself, for example.

But what about the beginner? What about the person who is interested in getting started in interior design but who has no background in the area?

No worries, most of our students are starting from scratch. And we pulled the video above straight from the first section of our Interior Design Course. It features one of our subject matter experts, Irwin Weiner, discussing the very basics of the interior design field.

As Irwin puts it:

I really want to understand what my client’s needs are, and I want to understand what they want as their home. And I try to strike a balance between their taste, their balance, and the structure that I’m designing for.
