Pursuing A Career In Interior Design


SBID Accreditation represents the highest level of knowledge and professional quality for skilled, experienced and qualified interior designers, product suppliers and fit-out specialists.

From design and specification, to procurement and installation, our leading accreditation framework sets the benchmark for professional standards across the industry. Accreditation verifies a professional’s expertise, supports interior design businesses and endorses best practice in the field of interior design.



Abiding by a recognised code of practice provides assurances for clients that they’ll receive functional, safe and compliant interior design solutions for their project.

To ensure competence across the profession, SBID members must comply with our code of conduct and support ethical practices. SBID Interior Designers also engage in a programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) delivered by knowledgeable specialists to drive development and improve the outcome of the interior design industry as a whole.



SBID partnerships support interior designers in business, offering expert advice, CPD training, industry events and exclusive discounts.

From contracts & insurance, to HR, legal & accounting, our partnerships serve the community with essential solutions designers need to advance careers and run their business. With unique networking opportunities to engage with the profession, our membership network forms a database of approved trade suppliers – helping designers implement designs, source materials or discover new products.
