Bedroom Interior Design - Intellect Architects

Design and decoration are two different things. so are interior designer and interior decorator different.

If you are about to renovate your home, it is best your understand the difference between the two and compare that with your renovation desires.

After some research we discovered that an interior designer is a professional who notes the desires and needs of the client. And then getting the required existing details of the space (or room), he then designs it to be functional, comfortable, etc., meeting those needs.

While an interior decorator working with what the interior designer has already put in place furnishes and decorates the room to be more aesthetically pleasing.

Another notable difference between interior designer and interior decorator is their education. 

Let's now go into this topic in detail below.

Mistakenly, interior designer and Interior decorator been interchangeably used which is wrong.

Who is an Interior Designer?

When it comes to functionality, attractiveness, safety, comfort and aesthetically pleasing state of a given space say room, an interior designer is a professional to ensure that all of these aew in place. 

Think of an interior designer as an organiser. He makes the space(s) functional ensuring there is interactive safe flow within the space.

This means that an interior designer makes sure that to a great extent that the space serves the clients needs.

Which entails that clients should comfortably perform all the necessary activities the space is meant to serve as a result of the interior designer 's output.


According to research we made; Interior Designer should go through professional schooling obtaining certificate(s) and license to practice. 

But this may just be for certain locations while others may not require all that.


The main duty of an interior designer is to ensure that a given space is functional and comfortable for use in respect to the client's choice. 

Nature of work: 

Interior designer works with the client as well as the architect to produce his interior design. 

The interior designer gets the client brief, makes a mood board of material collections.

If the client approve the choosen interior style and choice of materials, the interior designer goes ahead to produce his design. 

It is also good to note that an interior designer can in most cases do the work of an interior decorator. 

So he can also do the decorating and furnishing along side the interior design.
