Many Hongkongers, no matter how much they earn per month, either HK$80,000 or HK$8,000, all regard saving for a house as their life goal. Yet, it is not enough to save down payment only as they need to prepare a sum of money for decoration before enjoying a real cozy house.
Professional interior designers can solve all the difficulties in home design. Their designs are absolutely not groundless, but need to take into account the coordination of overall space, landscape, water and electricity devices, as well as environmental control, lighting, sound, etc. People attach increasing importance to the function and aesthetics of their residences. Given the small size of flats in Hong Kong, it will be a test of interior designers’ ability. The role of interior designer is not limited to home design, and venues such as shopping malls, office buildings, exhibition halls and restaurants also need their expertise.
Creativity, executive ability and communicative skill are indispensable for interior designers, as they have to draw the sketches and introduce their design schemes to customers and constructors personally. They should be able to adapt to any changes, such as customer‘s demand change and construction delay, and are poised to work overtime, in order to complete the project within planned time and budget. Interior designers often start their career as an assistant designer, whose job is mainly to assist designers in drawings sketches, with a starting monthly salary of around HK$8,000. An assistant designer may grow into a formal designer two years later, and could be promoted to the management layer after accumulating five years’ seniority.
Interior designer is a good choice for career as you can develop limitless creativity in limited space.Interested in this industry?
