Yes it is. Interior Design (ID) is undoubtedly one of the most sought after professions in India today. With city dwellers increasing day by day and available living spaces shrinking correspondingly, efficient use of the available space has become a grave necessity. And owing to the increased standard of living in India and the new mindset of the younger generation, interior design has become an independent field of its own, coming out of the shadows of architecture and civil engineering. Currently there is a need for 100000 interior designers in India alone, combining freelance projects as well as the jobs available in architectural and construction firms, and furniture companies.
There’s a huge scope in India, for interior designers these days as people keep revamping and renovating their homes, offices etc. every 5-6 years. New spaces such as restaurants, schools, new houses etc. also need the magic touch of an interior designer and awareness about this is spreading in India. Running your own interior design practice means being surrounded with creativity, choices, working flexibly at your own pace, earning a lot and being your own boss. It is also a very fulfilling job, when you see your design taking shape and being molded into reality!
There are many areas that the interior designer may want to specialize in such as residential (houses, flats and anywhere else used for domestic accommodation), workplaces (includes factories, offices, and any number of other settings), temporary exhibition designing (museums, galleries, and a wide range of other private and public settings), commercial (includes retail shops and shopping malls, warehouses, conference centers), leisure (cinemas, theatres, and gyms), hospitality (hotels, restaurants, pubs, cafes, and nightclubs), education (schools and universities), healthcare (local health centers, hospitals, nursing and care homes, and private clinics)
