Attractive, decorative, fancy and space saving. Decor is the necessity of any home, work place, or public place. Here comes interior designing into the picture. In old days, creative architects, and civil engineers were involved in this work. Now short courses allow you to learn and enter into this arena. After 10th and 12th any branch you can start with one year certificate course. If you seem to be interested in it then you can go for diploma, advance diploma and further. Usually apart from learning experience, practice is the key to success.
After learning you have to work as a trainee under some experienced interior designer. During this period please do not expect a pay package. Usually interior designers are not employed but they work on freelance percentage basis.
