Studying building construction is a great way to complement your interior design knowledge and skills. Not only will you get to learn all about important structural elements, but you’ll also become acquainted with the qualities of different building materials.
What does building construction have to do with interior design?
Construction plays a vital role in the designing of interior spaces. An interior designer has to take a number of structural factors into consideration, as well as elements such as insulation and electrical circuiting. He or she must also have an in-depth understanding of the qualities of the different building materials being used.
Understanding construction will give you a great advantage as an interior designer. You will know all about building codes and the structural integrity of your interior, as well as how to complement your design with physical aspects of the building process.
Studying building construction will also help you work better with architects and contractors during big projects.
