SALARIES
SATISFACTION

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) recently released a study
that digs into just how much interior designers earn at varying points of their
careers, the benefits that come along with work in the design profession,
and the satisfaction level felt throughout the field. The ASID 2019 Interior
Design Salaries & Benefits General Report offers compensation comparisons
based on gender, education level, design sector, and more so designers can
weigh where they fit within the norms and consider their own future moves.
It also takes a look at where construction dollars are being spent, which,
by default, can affect where the bigger salaries are found.

SURYA

While the report reveals that work satisfaction in general is high in the interior
design sector, professionals were notably more satisfied with their position than
with the overall industry. It should come as no surprise that a happy firm leads
to happy employees. The results assert the outsized role an individual firm can
play in the future of the overall profession simply by nurturing the talent of
its own staff and working together with the industry to cultivate creative talent
and design that impacts lives.

With 60,000+ high-quality fashion-forward products, including rugs, textiles,
lighting, wall décor, accent furniture, and decorative accents, Surya is the leading
source for coordinating accessories for all lifestyles and budgets. Surya offers
extensive in-stock inventory, as well as an array of custom options for unique
projects. Designers enjoy exclusive pricing with no minimum order requirements,
easy access to samples, and a dedicated team of accessories specialists.

The median salary for interior
design professionals is $70,000,
while the median hourly
rate is $30 per hour. The median
salary for sole practitioners
specifically is $50,000.
A gender gap in pay exists,
especially at higher job
levels. Males were typically
at higher job levels with a
median salary $19,000 higher
than females.
Firm specialization can result
in salary differences. The
median salary is $14,000 higher
at commercial firms than
residential firms.

Education degrees have an impact
on salary. The median salary
for survey respondents with
a bachelor's degree is $17,000
higher than those with some
college education and no degree.
NCIDQ certification makes
a difference. The median salary
is $16,000 higher for NCIDQcertified designers, offered
through the Council for Interior
Design Qualification (CIDQ),
as compared to those not
currently holding any type of
certifications or credentials.
