It not only decorates the spcae with the set of items but seeks to harmonise every little change that the space will be go through. Thus, it is the arrangement of living space i.e organizing, managing, planning and decorating the interiors of rooms at homes, offices, retail shops, showrooms, hotels, airports, exhibition halls, conference centers, theatres, studios and commercial establishments.

Nepali homes have always been rich in interior decorations. Though the style of decoration and the items utilized for decorating used to differ according to the communities and culture, Nepalese communities have always been keen towards decorating their living spaces. But as a trade or profession interior designing is very new to Nepal. The scope of interior designing is growing at a rapid rate becouse people have begun to realise the need and importance of creating "Beautiful Indoor Living Spaces." People have become more conscious of the design, layout and placement of their interiors, for offices, factories as well as residences. This has maximized the chances of employment for professional interior designers. But if one opts for a career in this field he/she needs to be artistic and creative. Technical and aesthetic awareness, as well as practical skills to communicate design concepts in a professional manner is also important. Interior designers should also be flexible and sensitive to the requirements and preferences of the clients.
