Commercial interior design refers to the interior design done in commercial spaces, such as offices, retail spaces, restaurants, lobbies, and other public spaces. Commercial interior design begins with the planning process when designers work with an architect to establish elements that will determine the appearance of the finished space.
Designers then work with the completed space, adding furniture and decor to meet the original design goals. Commercial interior design can create visually interesting spaces that follow a specific theme or bring an interesting twist to an otherwise unremarkable space. Good commercial interiors may go largely unnoticed by most, but they can have a significant impact by not only adding value to a business by adding value to the building in which it resides but also improving the space for those who spend time in it.
