Interior design is a vast field that has many applications in various industries. However, this field of work is very beneficial, but there are many myths that have no evidence at all, but people still believe those myths, which are:
Interior Designers Are decorators and Stylists
One of the most common myths about interior design is that many people think that interior designers are mere decorators or stylists. But that’s not even close. That is because interior designers are way more talented than those people. You can get an idea from the courses they take. Their courses include product, materials, computer, software, cost estimation, technological use, and many other advanced courses that interior designers have to take so that they can design your house. At the same time, interior designers can do well in other industrial fields because of their skills and knowledge.
Interior Design Doesn’t Require Technical Knowledge
Many thanks, thank interior design is just arranging some items and furniture in the house. But they don’t know it is a vast world that has a wide range of applications. And without technical knowledge, interior designers can’t think about designing anything these days. Now, the computer and various software like CAD has made designing much easier and more efficient. At the same time, other technologies like machines for industrial use have made the interior design very simple. That’s why interior designers must possess technical knowledge; it’s mandatory for them.
Interior Designers Don’t Listen to Their Clients
I have heard this a lot where people say interior designers don’t listen to the clients and their requirements. Instead, they just follow their own vision and complete a project according to that. Well, I don’t see any logic or common sense on there. Just think about you paying me for my services, so if you are satisfied, why on earth will you pay me? Interior designers always make sure to listen to what client wants with their house or other projects and works according to that. And if the designer is not clear with the client’s requirements, then the designer will ask again and again. Besides, even if any small modifications are required, then the designer will ask the client.
Small Rooms Should be Painted, White
It’s a belief of many people, including many interior designers. That is because they think other bold colours will make the room seem smaller. And if they paint their room white colour, it will look larger. But there is no truth to this. You can choose whatever colour you like, but you have to make sure that the colour you are choosing goes well with your furniture and room. And make sure the colour combination is excellent.
Renovation Means Complete Removal of All the Existing Furniture and All
Many think that, but that’s not true at all. What do interior designers do? They first find out which areas need renovation. And then they renovate those particular areas and furniture. They don’t remove all the furniture and repair all the areas.
