A new generation of youthful designers is coming of age.
In the past, most of us who wanted to be an interior designer had the opportunity to go to school and learn the trade from a mentor, or find some sort of apprenticeship. That may still be the case if you are looking for a career in interior design at a relatively young age. But the way in which young people in this generation have the ability to design their dream space, create their own job and then sell it, is becoming the norm. Designing an interior for someone else to sell on your behalf has certainly become a thing of the past. People want to create their own space to suit their lifestyles, while still looking elegant and cosy and most importantly, a masterpiece!
In this blog post, we’ll take a look at three ways in which you can start creating your own interior design business and even sell your design skills to others.
Receiving training to be an interior designer
Just a few years ago, there was still a requirement to have the qualification and experience to be considered for a high level, big name commercial design job. After all, it is a professional industry, which means you need to have been through a series of training sessions.
However, this requirement has slowly been decreasing in the past few years, as a few big names have closed down their Interior Designer in Bangkok departments. This has meant that many young designers have entered into the industry without any formal training. There is, however, still the requirement to have a certain level of skills, but the number of people who have these skills is decreasing. As a result, you may find that people who entered the industry as an apprentice in the past have found themselves working in the industry without having any real skills.
However, there are still some people who have the required skills and knowledge. So, if you want to become a professional interior designer, there are still some options available. These are mostly focused on the residential and commercial design sectors.
