1) The Event Designer – This is someone who typically designs hotel rooms and meeting spaces for large national conventions organized by business holding companies or hotels that have a lot of repeat customers. Think about how you’d feel about the room in a hotel where you go every year for your company’s annual convention. Can you picture yourself there? Would you want to sleep in that room? Would it make a good impression on your clients the next morning when they come down for breakfast and see where they slept the night before? How excited would you be about going back to that hotel room year after year? This is where the event designer comes in. 

2) The Retail Designer – This is someone who typically designs bedrooms for high-end department stores or furniture retailers. 

3) The Interior Designer – This is someone who typically designs bedrooms for private homeowners.

If you have ever thought about getting into the business of designing bedrooms, or if you are currently working as a bedroom designer, you need to know what it takes to get started. Many people don’t realize how high risk this career can be because of all the potential problems that could occur during your workday. Before deciding that this is the right career for you, take a moment to look at some of the risks involved with bedroom design.

For one thing, designing bedrooms is not an easy job by any stretch of the imagination. This type of interior design requires more than just knowing what colors should be paired together and other seemingly simple interior design features. You also have to consider other issues, such as flooring types, window coverings, walkways, and toilet types. When you’re designing bedrooms you need to take into account the size of the bed, furniture placement, storage options, lighting, wall decorating styles, and accessories.

Additionally, there are many problems that can arise during your workday as a bedroom designer. These include: people not wanting your design work; your designs not being approved by the client; mistakes on your part; lack of business or poor business management skills; having to meet deadlines; competition with other designers; not getting paid for completed designs; working long hours every day without any breaks…and the list goes on! 


Professional bedroom designers have a lot of options when it comes to designing bedrooms. There are many considerations that go into the decision-making process, and each person has their own set of preferences. In this article we’ve covered some of the most important points to consider before embarking on your first professional bedroom design project—and hopefully helped you make an informed decision about how best to get started!
