Paying attention to function and quality, Interior Designers plan designs for commercial, industrial, and residential spaces. They may need to be familiar with regulations such as the American Disabilities Act as they coordinate with contractors, architects, and engineers on work sites. They produce drawings, and may use computer-aided drafting software. They advise clients on design factors to serve purposes such as selling merchandise, or comfortable work environments, or may specialize in a certain style of decor or design. They must be familiar with building codes, and have knowledge of materials and furnishings. They often must drive to the client’s home or office, and accomodate client’s schedules, working long hours. They often carry bulky samples, or move objects such as carpets or furniture.
