Commercial Interior Design
To meet the growing demand for commercial interior design work on projects such as offices, hotels, and public buildings, these businesses became much larger and more complex, employing builders, joiners, plasterers, textile designers, artists, and furniture designers, as well as engineers and technicians to fulfill the job. Firms began to publish and circulate catalogs with prints for different lavish styles to attract the attention of expanding middle classes.
As department stores increased in number and size, retail spaces within shops were furnished in different styles as examples for customers. One particularly effective advertising tool was to set up model rooms at national and international exhibitions in showrooms for the public to see.
Today interior or exterior design is not just about styling and space utilization. Considering the urban lifestyle of both residences and office spaces along with the weather and climate changes, designs involve, weatherproofing, insulation, optimization of office spaces and so on.
Once, considered to be a non-issue, interiors and exteriors have been the core issue in the field of construction and decors.
