Today is essential to provide the environment where you live with a concept that has changed over the time: comfort. The interior designer should always be to the vanguard of the different variables thatconstitutes the universe of architectural space; the functionality of lighting, the morphology, the materials, etc.; and more looking the changes that has taken place in the interior design, especially in developed countries like the United States where the interior design is understood as something deeper that simple decoration.
The designer has as raw material of work, the management of thespace, which must adapts and modifies according to the needs of each client, always seeking the best solution: functional, technological, and economic. By at looking at how the interior design can improves the quality of life of the people, we can see that this field through the years has increased the demand, because the people is concern in not only to live in a nice place if not also in a placethat could adapt their needs and suit their lifestyle.
