Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Many people use the terms “interior designer” and “interior decorator” interchangeably, however there is a difference. In J Design Group you’ll find experts in both fields: interior design and decoration.

Our company is located in Coral Gables, Florida and you can reach us at (305) 444-4611 by phone, and by email at jdesigngroup@aol.com or visit us at 225 Malaga Avenue in Coral Gables, Miami Florida.

What is the difference?

Interior designers are knowledgeable about building codes, construction methods, space planning, color selections, remodeling, universal design, decorative finishes, and problem solving among other things.  Interior designers might work in the residential or commercial aspect of interiors.

Interior decorators are more focused on the aesthetics of a room, such as paint colors, draperies, furniture selections, and accessories. Interior decorators usually work only in the residential aspect of interiors.
