Interior Designer Vs. Interior Decorator: Getting straight to the point

Interior Designer Vs. Interior Decorator: Getting straight to the point

In this very quick video you are going to learn the difference between a Interior Designer and a Interior Decorator. I cut out all the fluff and went straight to the point.
If you are looking for some clarification, I hope this will help on your decorating and / or design direction.
Side note:
Both are awesome professions, there is just a difference in what they do and often they are confused with one another 🙂

    Why do many interior designers claim to be interior architects?

  2. Vanessa Esteves on June 27, 2022 at 12:01 am

    Can’t it simply be described – Interior design works on the structure and layout of the space where as interior decorators – does just that, decorates with furniture and finishings.

    Is it worth to do the interior design course fully online? I mean if you are really willing can you complete it online. Yorkville university has a 3 yrs undergraduate program with a full online option.

    There are far too many people calling themselves "interior decorators" when all they do is make peoples’ homes look like hotel lobbies and Airbnb rentals. If all you’re doing is painting everything white, gray on the walls, and "Home Sweet Home" signs, that’s not decorating. A true decorator doesn’t hide behind minimalism. What do you know about COLOR? What colors complement each other? What do you know about fabrics, textiles, patterns? What are they teaching people at these design schools lately? Decorators are lacking creativity and imagination. Everything, so basic and dull. Paint every wall stark white, remove every piece of furniture, suddenly you’re a "Modern Decorator".

    ok you finally said what i wanted to hear interior designers can do decorating i’ve been here since two hours dying to listen this lol i just have a very simple question how do decoraters earn independently they do not have a degree nor any typical schooling then how and why , selecting the textures of walls , what stuff should be placed where all of this comes under interior designing no ?

    Work on those editing skills, come up with a script and try it again

  13. Rita Marcos on June 27, 2022 at 12:35 am

    Great Video!👍🏻 Short and sweet 😊 can you talk about real interior design project management? This is the toughest part that no one talks about.

  14. Leandra Dingwall on June 27, 2022 at 12:38 am

    Can a interior designer also be a interior decorator ?

  15. Durazno on June 27, 2022 at 12:51 am

    I am not sure if I want to finish my current undergraduate program (nursing) and then get my interior decorator certificate, or just go ahead and switch to an interior design program. You see, I love decorating my room, but I also find it interesting how a house is arranged- structure-wise; I want to be a decorator, but I don’t know how far I would go with just a certificate… oh and I live in the U.S, so I don’t know if you could help me (?)

    I always go with Snugverse whenever I need any interiors create beautiful interiors that are functional and attractive and are pleasant to work for.

  17. Dylan Grant on June 27, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Great vid do you know if it’s possible to be both a interior decorator and interior designer and if so would it be possible to work both jobs
