Interior design is one of the younger careers in history as it is just over one hundred years old, it originally consisted of common sense, good taste and natural talent, but what is interior design like now?
Who are interior Designers, what do they do?
Interior Designers are involved in both structural alters and design, meaning they make sure the interior of homes are safe, healthy and styled. They use their skills in two main different areas domestic and commercial settings.
Domestic interior design is designing or creating in residential areas. While commercial designing is used for office spaces and businesses
There are occasions when interior designers work with architects and engineers to determine the look of the interior space when the work is complete.

Yes, an interior designer who has been working for under five years receives 45-65 k per around the average wage in New Zealand, but after five years the income rises to 65-95 k per year. Experience also gives a larger possibility of payment because as years go on your reputation grows.
