  1. What happens if you make a mistake and the whole building goes on fire, do you get sued or go to court. I like drawing plans and stuff but this sounds very difficult and I don't really want to put the life of someone in my hands

  2. I am very interested in interior design or anything that has to do with designing how a home or building is going to look. I want something that will allow me to think creatively, I especially want to have an exciting career.

  3. I completely agree with the innovating scopes of Interior Design. Traditionally we honestly thought of them a professions that focus on artistic qualities of smallest details to the macro details of interior spaces where some of macro details have overlap with architecture at a limited scale of projects only. We previously thought of them as specialization of architecture in interior elements as it is within the architecture industry and now a separate field due to growing complexity. When a project exceeds scales, an interior designer should have full authority to design those scopes. Interior design course has to integrate all necessary tools of sciences to improve their products. However As an architect I disagree on some claims that Architecture doesn’t cover things like, safety, codes , sprinkler systems, circulations and all other technical and scientific scopes of designs of interior elements which is housed under architectural structures. I think interior Design misrepresented in much more inferior expectation the architecture more than Architects see Interior Design as innovating and equating to architecture in terms of capability while specializing in interior elements. Architects have in fairness plenty much heavier trainings of sciences, systems, physics, engineering,automation and technology planning and mathematics with at least training of calculations to support these claims of scope of this video, like sound acoustics, lightings, structures, strength of materials and properties ,safety, accessibility, statistics, circulations, programing, hvac , thermal comfort issues, hvac, building economics and many many more associated for the improvement of architectural structures and very unfair for us who have supported with these much intensive prerequisites to fully exclude us from the equation and represented like no background on these areas. It displaces the position of architecture by definition as art and science of designing and construction of building where art, sciences and a grasp of engineering are prerequisites to comply these technical claims of capabilities and that separates architecture from all other fields. We are only talking at the scientific sides of practice of both architects and Interior designers. Take note that the whole architecture structure with substantial scale than interiors needs these all sciences more and more than the interior elements alone. Please check architects curriculum so you could have the window of their capabilities. I am not referring to the Interior physical scopes, and that is yours. Interior design was known as art of designing interior spaces, surprisingly innovating and now recognized by Architects as with equal capabilities but only focus in interior spaces.Let as be reminded that architects can practice few scopes of interior design at a limited area same thing as interior designers allowed to do exterior and envelope systems at a limited scales of structures because both have basics of few overlapping coverage of studies and trainings. And sciences and technical aspects this video explained is common to both profession. My disagreement is referring to coverage of studies like those technical aspects of safety, circulation space planning which now includes statistics in programming that caused us countless sleepless nights in training seems so unfair excluding architects of the coverage. after all, Architects are still In Charge of the holistic organizations of the architecture elements which includes systems and interiors that therefore both should collaborate in terms of decisions to create a harmonized exterior and interior output. And its very welcoming to know that interior Designers are now equipped with technical capabilities to improve more the interior spaces.

  4. How does a fire alarm work?
    I am interested in this field, but I am still 13.
    So I want knowledge about it from now, so I can be a succesful interior designer.
    Can you please make a video on basics of Interior designing.

  5. Hi! I'm an 8th grader right now and I'm struggling with what I want to start working towards when I get into high school and my family has been bugging me about it. I've always wanted to be an architect as a child, not really knowing what kind of architect but interior design has always interested me, including interior decorating. It's almost like I want a cross between the two. Is that kind of what you do, or if not what exactly would that be called? I'm just trying to get as much information on this so I can determine what exactly I would like to do.

  6. I am a freshman in high school looking forward to my future employment, my fam is low class so getting into college will be hard – I would like to be some kind of nurse or someone who decorates houses, any advice or people I could get in touch with?

  7. Hello! So currently I'm an incoming 12th grader in high school, and as early as now, I'm doing a lot of tedious preparations for college. I'm still having difficulties as to what course I'm going to take, and one of my main problems is the involvement of difficult math that they are going to tackle in that course. So my question is: Does interior design in college involves complicated or in-depth mathematical calculations? From a scale of 1 to 10, how complicated is the math in interior design? Your answer is of huge help to my career choice and it will be greatly appreciated.

  8. Hi thank you for this video. I don't know if you still answer to questions, but I hope you answer mine's. I'm really curious about working in firms, you can say that I'm thinking of it as my future career. Do you know how Interior Designers got projects in a firm? Are they always put in different teams( with architects, engineers etc etc) when there's a different project? Can they pick their projects or are they assigned to it? Who signs the contract, employer or employee? Do Interior Designer can also renovate a place, like penthouse etc for a client of the firm? Sorry if I sound ignorant, I really have no idea about this area of an Interior Designer. I watch many videos about Interior Designing, most of them are self-employed, but I'm curious about what an Interior Designer are doing once they work in firms (not an intern but an employee.). Thank you very much.

  9. Veeeeeeeery informative video. I always been a fan of feng shui and rearranging furniture to maximize "efficiency". Anywho i think interior design maybe a path for me. Whats the best way to get started and do you feel you get to express your "style" in this field of work?

  10. Thank you so much for this video , very informative for a budding interior designer like me !! , no one speaks about the technical terms , but you have explained it clearly ty so much , expecting more videos related to interior designing
