In this type of interior design, a designer plans and designs spaces in residential homes. Often, a designer who primarily works in homes will specialize in a particular part of residential design. It is common for designers to specialize in kitchens, bathrooms, home offices and custom furniture and home appliance design. Many people want their homes to be extensions of themselves and expressions of personal individuality. So, while this type of interior design may seem much less limited than commercial design, you can see that it takes just as much creativity and innovation!
