State Registration

Understanding Georgia’s law:

The state of Georgia first recognized the professional practice of interior design in 1992 with the passage of HB 43. As a result, business owners and other individuals in Georgia seeking qualified professionals to assist with their interior design projects have a greater ability to select the most qualified person for a particular project and one which provides the greatest value. The interior design law in Georgia defines interior design services, making clearer the lines of overlap and separation between those of interior designers and architects. Independent, unregistered interior designers, decorators or kitchen and bath designers maintain the same rights that they have always enjoyed to design projects. Interior Designers in Georgia are not required to register with the state to practice. However, designers who wish to stamp and sign construction documents for permit, must be registered. (Credit:
