1) Get good at drawing

One of the first things you should consider if you’re interested in becoming a room decorator is to get good at drawing. You don’t have to become an amazing artist by any means, but it helps to be able to draw out your ideas on paper so that people can see what you envision for their space. Some room decorators even use computer software programs like Photoshop but many others still prefer using pen and paper. If you intend on attending college or university for this career path, talk with the guidance counselor about taking some art classes because they help out when learning how to draw!

2) Go to college or university

Most employers require that anyone looking to become a professional room decorator at least have a bachelor’s degree in interior design or architecture. If you are still in high school or have just completed your undergraduate degree, then the best thing to do is continue with further education because it will give you a huge advantage over other people who are applying for this type of job. Also, while you’re studying at university don’t forget about networking! Get out there and make some important contacts within the industry by seeking out opportunities to meet people who may be able to help advance your career after graduation.

3) Learn the basics

It’s a good idea to enroll in workshops where room decorators share their secrets about what makes a space look amazing. Rooms that are beautifully decorated are not always done so by accident; there are usually several techniques that go into making an area look great. It’s important to learn these basic techniques to build upon them in your unique way.
