What Is the Difference Between Commercial Interior Design and Residential Interior Design?
Commercial interior design connects the physical environment to business strategy. It bridges the gap between a business’ higher-level goals and how a space supports achieving those goals visually. On the other hand, residential interior design deals with and how people relate to their immediate home environments.

When Should You Bring In An Interior Designer?
If you are considering hiring an interior designer for a commercial design project, the best time to bring one in is at the beginning of the project. An interior designer’s knowledge of environment and behavior can influence the space planning to create greater revenue and more financially successful results.
The interior designer needs to work closely with the client to understand their business needs and to interpret the use of the space by key stakeholders. The beginning phases of the building planning provide a platform for the interior designer to become a strategic consultant connecting the business’ core values, mission, and work processes to an intelligent workplace.
