Despite the differences, there are of course crossovers between the two professions. You will often find interior designers taking on decorating tasks or decorators offering suggestions for furnishings and layout. Both roles rely on a creative outlook to find solutions to revive or create the best possible space for their clients.
Which service do you need?
Considering what your project involves should guide you in choosing the right service. If you are looking for a restructure of a space or get advice alongside structural planning, then an interior designer will be able to give you a full floor plan proposal including spatial design. They will be able to advise on room layout, the adjustment of wall positions and windows, alongside the best use of the space. If it is more surface design, decorating walls, helping with fabric choice, adjusting room layout etc that requires no alteration to structure, then a decorator would be suitable. The stage that you are at with the design process can also affect the decision – if the project is in the early stages of construction, then it is worth consulting a professional interior designer to liaise with the architect to ensure the build fits with the end vision.
