A new study from the University of Maryland and Harvard Business School suggests that while interior design is a well-established field, it has its drawbacks.
The study, which surveyed over 500 of the country’s top interior designers, found that a large majority said they were not good at designing for the modern home.
Only a quarter said they had a great deal of experience designing for that purpose.
Overall, the study found that only 33 percent of interior designers said they could design a house with the best possible features and that only 25 percent could create a house that “looks great from a distance.”
While the study does not include the costs associated with each course, the researchers found that most of the courses offered at private universities and colleges cost more than $20,000 a year.
“These courses often focus on a certain style or decor and often focus only on the basics of the home,” the study said.
“The cost is not in keeping with the quality of the design.”
The study is just one example of how expensive interior design can be, said the authors, who also included former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
The study found a lot of the people surveyed did not have the skills needed to design an effective home for a family.
The study said that a third of the surveyed interior designers did not even have the basic tools needed to make a good-looking home.
The researchers also found that many interior designers are using techniques that could be very detrimental to the overall health of the environment.
“I am not a fan of people who are doing these projects without proper safety precautions,” said study author Jessica Koo.
“These projects can have very serious consequences.”
