Interior design is broken down into two fields: commercial and residential design. Commercials spaces might include anything outside of a private home or office, such as hospitals or hotels. The type of building that’s being decorated and furnished affects the choices that a commercial interior designer will make. Commercial interior designers may work for a design firm or be self-employed or they can also work for home-furnishing stores, where their job is to sell store merchandise while advising customers on design elements.Because interior designers may use computer-aided design software for their work, computer skills are often useful.Time-management skills, sales ability, and self-motivation are also beneficial traits for someone interested in a career in commercial interior design.
