What Does an Interior Redesigner Do?
When you become an interior redesigner, you will redecorate homes quickly and cost-effectively. While you might recommend a new coat of paint or shop for some home accessories, you will primarily use what people already own. You might help people downsize to smaller homes, help a couple combine households, or simply help people get a designer look for their home by redecorating. And you might increase your income by working for corporate clients to redesign, rearrange, and accessorize office suites, lobbies, or reception areas.
