There is more to residential design then many think. Materials, energy, water and housing place a part in being successful. Housing is being able to adapt to the environment around the house you are building. This means whether it has a lot of storms and needs to be built to endure a hurricane , and the price range has to fit in with the surrounding area. If the house does not blend in with the environment type and style of the area it will be out of place.

Materials are a big part in determining if the house will be able to resist these storms or extreme heat with how it is built. Materials can range between light weight frames to brick, cladding, concrete, or green. The type of roof is also involved with the construction of the walls. It might have to be concrete for more storms and light weight for hotter areas. The price also plays a factor on what type of material based on the budget. A lot of the time many designers will choose a house already built to renovate for the new homeowner so that it can cut down cost and use some materials already there

Energy deals with heating and cooling, lighting,, appliances, renewable energy, wind systems, transport, batteries, meters and equipment. The energy can range to solar for some houses to reduce energy if the budget qualifies. Energy deals with reducing power in an efficient way. Water is the process of saving water on your property. Some housing have rain barrels which ban be used for plants rather then paying for water which would cut down the price. With focusing on water they are able to make things more convenient and cheaper for the home owner in the long run.

When it comes to interior design it is not only skilled decorating. It involves a lot of architecture aspects as well as cadd. You have to have the ability to work out and draw plans as a layout of how to set it up. It could range from renovating a bedroom to kitchens and baths or additions. It is the designers job to figure out what will fit within the budget of the owner and what will also flow with the house with the needs of the owner required. It has a great deal of working with the owner to find what exactly they want and meet their requirements in a budget and time requirement.

When it comes to renovating areas in the house, colors must blend. The cabinets and counter tops of a kitchen and bath can play a huge factor in if it blends well or not. Colors also play a factor on the size of the room. Certain colors like dark colors make the rooms feel small so working with a small room it would be a better idea to work with brighter colors. Also looking for durable, cheap products will help to incorporate other aspects by the cost being lower to really sell the owner.

One of the first things a designer is to do would be evaluating the work area with the owner. This incorporates measuring the layout of the area and finding the major needs and wants of the owner. The designer will then spend some time working with designs to present to the owner. Normally a designer presents 2 designs for the owner to see a range of options and clarify which they want. This will allow the designer to know what to work with and to give the owner an idea of where their mind is headed for the design and also allows the home owner to make the needed changes before it is too late.

A main aspect to residential design are the aesthetics involved. Aesthetics are a key to being successful because if the area is not pleasing to the eye it will not sell. In residential design it incorporates both interior design and architecture. The residential designer creates an area to fit the style the homeowner wants along with the price and space. The decorations in the area are ultimately what people look at but the construction involved is the base to everything. Contractors will need to be on the job while the residential designer looks for lighting, furniture and appliances to fit the style of the homeowner on a budget.

just like the movie set design, a residential designer must have that creative aspect as well. Sharing ideas with home owners might sound easy but you have to creatively relay your visions with well communication and the ability to listen. With residential the designer is not only restricted to housing. Residential interior design can range from housing to shops, hotels, public buildings, restaurants and even ships like cruises. Everything needs a creative design to pull people into spending money so job opportunities are always opening up

The area of work can range so a designer has to be able to move from job to job easily. With the areas changing around a designer also has change between styles that people could want. Also changing trends can effect how people want their house to look so you have to be able to change to your environment no matter how hard it may be.

With interior design many think it is the decorating of houses. Many do not realize the construction and architecture part of it. To maximize space walls could be taken out or built or new full kitchens not just buying decorations and placing them. The interior design can range from homes to offices, retail, hotels, museums, or cinemas. An interior designer could be asked to make the lobby of a hotel more welcoming and appealing and they would have to make it look more like home. However an office would need a more sophisticated look being it is a business place. A range of jobs can come up so the ability to cover different styles must range as well.
