Interior Design Vs. Interior Decorating


When you look around your home or office, do you like what you see? Are you happy with the interior designs of your living and working spaces?

Or, could you do with a bit of a remodel? How about an entire overhaul? When you look around a room and despise more elements than you love, you know it’s time for some renovations. You should always, at least mostly, love the elements of your home and business interior designs; ergo, you should invest in making them fit your envisioned perfect décor whenever you get the opportunities.

With that said, most people interchange the terms interior decorating and interior design. But, in fact, these two terms are unique to one another. Read on for definitions and examples of what interior decorating and interior design mean in the décor world. Then read further for help in setting up an awesome consultation and brainstorm session with Seasons, a Lowcountry Design Team that caters to Hilton Head Island, Palmetto Bluff, Savannah, and beyond.


What Does Interior Design Mean?

Interior design is a formal profession, where designers have to go to school to attain specific degrees and training to learn about design, architectural, and structural elements. Why? Because interior designers often work around established construction companies, meaning they need the safety know-how and architectural knowledge to help on in-progress or brand-new home or business sites.

In some instances, interior designers are asked to take a state or province exam to be allowed to work in that area. However, this differs by city and state, so most designers have to check with their local government offices, with credentials in hand, before they can begin work.


The Definition of Interior Decorating for Your Home and/or Office

Interior decoration is moreso about enhancing the look and aesthetics of a home or business, and less about practicalities and function. While formal school and degrees are not required for interior decorators, some go through a creative schooling process to learn the ins-and-outs of design trends and décor

However, there are no credentials required to be an interior decorator. You simply have to have a good eye for aesthetic appeals and a satisfied, dedicated client base.


Professional Interior Design AND Decorating

The Seasons Design Team are indeed college-educated with the credentials required to be called professional interior designers. However, these designers delve into all aspects of design, which includes interior decoration. Their degrees were earned to attain the knowledge and credentials required to work with architectural teams, but these designers can also whip a room into shape with simple décor changes. Call them jacks of all trades, if you wish. The Seasons Design Team has a way of creating zen and balance within a room, home, or business.


What You Need for Home or Office Design and Décor

Do you need a complete overhaul of your home’s interior design? Or, do you simply want to redo your office’s interior decorations? Whatever you think this case may be, you should present your ideas to the Seasons Design Team in a one-on-one consultation. Talking through your ideas and renovation thoughts is the first step in getting exactly what you need in your home or office design and décor. Sometimes interior decoration and interior design are implemented in tandem. Which could also be the case in perfecting your home or business, which should ultimately give you something to smile about.
