Supporting the continuance in setting standards of best practice for interior design and the design industry

The Councils are a pioneering system developed between a specific industry sector and SBID as a professional interior design body. Each Council provides an independent specialist area of design knowledge through an in-depth external resource. The councils consist of experts in their field, each passionate to lead the way for their profession whilst linking their expertise through the benefits new design ideas create.

To find out more about an individual council or get involved contact us or log into the SBID Professional portal, SBIDPro.
