    2. Thank u Rajaditya...

  5. the salary info is wrong here, you cannot expect high salary as an interior designer, you will start at 10 - 15 thousand or less per month even with a degree. Diploma is better because if you take masters degree, there will only be research work, no one will teach you anything. I took on masters after bca and am having the toughest time to cope up with so much, and most colleges have shut the masters course for non b. design holders.

    1. Hi Rekha,

      If you really passionate about interior designing then you may go for it. Meanwhile start involving yourself in interior related stuffs and start learning interior software, which can be downloaded online.
      After sometimes if you really feel it is your cup of tea then not a bad idea to change your field.

  11. Hi I have done my graduation in Bca last yr. From past yr I m with my Dad in his construction business I have interest in interior designing so now what should I do diploma of 2 yr or a degree course like pg or ms

    1. You can go ahead with 2 yrs if you planning to continue construction business afterwards. Simply, practical knowledge is essential therefore getting a diploma/degree does not matter a lot if you will use interior skill in personal business.

      Tip : Get involved yourself in interior design and concept.
