What are the duties of a Residential Interior Designer?

What are the duties of a Residential Interior Designer
A residential interior designer is an integral part of the property development team and their duties may vary accordingly. Here are some of their typical tasks:
  • Visualize and develop floor plans and interior design, creating mood boards to sample the design vision.
  • Use computer applications in the design process.
  • Manage project’s scope of work based on ROI and develop and maintain the budget for the design projects.
  • Oversee structural design and implementation.
  • Order materials and schedule inspections.
  • Develop the construction schedule and identify and solve problems.
  • Ensure that designs comply with all regulations.
  • Work in a team across all phases of design from concept to completion.
  • Communicate well with all stakeholders.
Residential interior designers have several core competencies. Typically, they have a design portfolio and a bachelor’s degree or certification in residential interior design.
They know how to use various computer programs and software. This includes AutoCAD, Illustrator, SketchUp, or Revit in creating their designs. They are highly creative and have excellent communication skills.

Residential Interior Designer Role

The residential interior designer can perform many critical duties virtually. Indeed, many firms are already advertising remote residential interior design jobs where the designer works from home.
In the table below, we’ve considered which responsibilities a virtual residential interior designer can perform. Tasks done virtually have a check mark, while tasks requiring an in-person team member have a cross. We marked tasks that require in-person assistance with both a tick and a cross.

The table shows that a virtual residential interior designer can remotely perform almost all the traditional duties. Team members on site will need to ensure that workers on the site are following the designs.
They will also need to let the designer know if problems on-site will impact the scheduling. By making only these few adjustments, a firm can enjoy the benefits of a virtual residential interior designer. This includes slower costs, time savings, and better retention.
ShoreAgents can help your firm hire a virtual residential interior designer. They also can provide advice and coaching to make that hire a success.

Where to hire a Residential Interior Designer?

Where to hire a Residential Interior Designer
You could go the traditional route and hire a local residential interior designer to work on-site at your office. However, this isn’t generally the most cost-effective or time-effective solution.
Hiring a virtual residential interior designer through ShoreAgents is cost-effective, saves time, and improves retention. ShoreAgents can recruit from its vast network of real estate professionals.
We can also advise you on developing your job description and managing your virtual team member. We can coach you and your hire to ensure the relationship’s success.

Takeaway

Hiring a residential designer is crucial in every property development project. They bring expertise in creating functional and appealing interior spaces and ensuring efficient coordination for successful development.
Hiring locally for this role, especially in countries like the USA, will inevitably result in higher costs. This is why outsourcing to the Philippines is an effective solution. Labor costs are low in the country, making a virtual designer significantly more cost-effective than a local one.
Partner with us at ShoreAgents and let us reach a helping hand to meet your business goals. We understand and have expertise in all aspects of the real estate industry, including property development.
