Interior Decorator

Interior Designer vs Interior Decorator

The terms interior designer and interior decorator are sometimes used interchangeably. However, there is an important distinction to be made between the two.

  • Interior designers plan and create the overall design for interior spaces,
  • Interior decorators focus on the decorative aspects of interiors.

In other words, interior design includes interior decoration, but interior decoration does not encompass interior design.
