Is Interior Design Superficial?
Is Interior Design superficial? Interior Design is definitely NOT superficial to me. Design is bringing environmental psychology into a space in order to create more efficiency, create multi-use spaces, create the right kind of feeling in spaces for their intended tasks, etc. I create rooms where teenagers like the space enough to spend time with their parents, where couples can do individual tasks or hobbies while still being together, where employees enjoy their work environments so much they work harder and happier, where people come home and LOVE to be there.
Every individual has a unique taste for design. Each has different needs and preferences. There are people, however, think of Interior Design as superficial - mostly people who have no clear understanding of what space allocation is and how to incorporate design elements in a way that will not be intrusive and stressful. Interior design is a skill, a specialized skill that expertly integrates various colors, textures and style in perfect harmony with each of the client's interests, preferences and most importantly, their needs.
Remember, not every person is gifted with an eye for design. We need interior designers to see through our needs, and translate them into beauty and functionality.
There is a huge difference between an Interior Designer and a Home Decorator.
