Architects design all sorts of buildings, not just houses. They're skilled in math and logic to make sure the buildings are strong and secure.

Interior designers are experts in arranging spaces inside a building. They can do this by just choosing furniture, fabrics, and paint or by doing a bigger renovation project with the help of builders. They make sure the spaces are functional and look good, following building and safety codes. Interior designers are creative with their design skills and have a good sense of space. They work inside the building, making it look attractive and comfortable.

Architects mainly focus on the building construction, making sure it's structurally sound. They may also help with some interior designs but it's not their main responsibility.
