Hi I'm currently studying Interior Design and am looking to start my own business in the future. I was just looking for some feedback from people as to whether this is a service anyone in this particular area would be interested in.
I'm not sure as yet if starting an interior design business would have to mean moving out of London to an area that doesn't have this service as readily available to them as Londoners.
I think there's still room in London for more interior designers - but think about what kind of service you want to offer as interior design covers a very broad spectrum. Think through your ideas carefully and about the kind of things you want to do, target your market, put together a good business plan, talk to as many people in the profession as possible to get advice, etc., etc.
I myself have just done all the above and am looking forward to a successful new career - and yes, I am self-employed.
