Why do interior designers need insurance?

Interior designers work hard to create functional yet appealing home and work spaces. However, you could face a lawsuit if you don’t deliver promised results, or if there's an unforeseen delay. Interior design insurance can cover legal costs and other financial losses from injuries, theft, and accidents.
