Life & Prospects in Interior Designing

One of the realities you need to understand is that Interior designing does omit a structured path or a clear promotion based approach found in much other industry. One of the reasons is due to diverse nature of this industry, liking for self-employment and its fit in the creative vertical. Making your own career is the been the norm in this industry. Becoming an interior designer is not easy because of the partially closed nature of the industry.

Life for newly starting interior designers is hard primarily for that fact of the time frame that requires building reputation & trusting in this industry. Your only guiding light during your formative years would be initiative, ambition, individual skill set & creativity. Life becomes more easy once you pass the formative years and established  with which career prospects rises from starting up your own firm , taking on different projects, hired by big architectural firm for big projects, the interior designer is in much demand to the boom in both infrastructure and urban planning.

Well, a large part of your life is spent in meeting with contractors, clients and suppliers with travel being your partner in companion. One of my starling discoveries in this industry is the % of time spend in each activity with 90% spend on networking, marketing, selling, developing the right contact, 7% spend on paper work and 3% on Design.

For those who are employed or seeking work there are good opportunities and perks in this industry. A typical pay package for an assistant designer starts from 25000/ per month. The increase and perks shall depend on the number of projects involved and the cumulative years of experience. An annual package for a senior interior designer starts from 8 lakhs -20 lakhs including perks, bonus and commission. Besides the remuneration this is one industry which is both fun and creative. One of the most striking factors is the absence of monotony, with each project needs and requirements different from client to client. The career is also rewarding because of the number of options which an interior designer can specialize in.
