Why Interior Designers Keep Getting Smarter
By: Architectural Visions
Working with an accredited interior designer can be the make or break decision of your home improvement project. Whether you’re adding an addition, remodeling a room or looking to change décor, there’s no substitute for a professional who’s trained and experienced in creating spaces especially for clients. However, they can also solve problems and even help you avoid costly mistakes, in the long run adding a great deal of value and satisfaction to your project.
So how do you find a designer you can trust? Start with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). It’s the oldest, largest, and leading professional organization for interior designers (around since 1975).

- Accreditation as an interior designer (Georgia requires interior designers to be licensed.)
- Experience in the type of project you are doing
- Demonstrated creativity, talent and resourcefulness
- Attentiveness, responsiveness, and good communication skills
- A record of reliability and good work habits
