More than 2,000 jobs will be available in the Irish home design industry for 2016, according to the Irish Times.
Home design jobs are an increasingly important job in Ireland.
They have increased from around 6,000 in 2014 to more than 10,000 this year, according the National Housing Federation.
The national average is 8,500, but there are a number of regional and local areas with a lower number.
Dublin City has the highest number of job vacancies, with around 4,400 vacancies in the capital.
Dubliner is followed by Carlow, Meath, Mayo and Cork.
Dubliners and Carlow have the lowest number of vacancies in Galway, with 2,200 vacancies.
The other regions with the lowest vacancy figures are Limerick, Cork and Cork City, where there are 3,400 and 3,500 vacancies respectively.
The number of jobs in the residential sector in the country is increasing.
This is in part due to the boom in home-design jobs.
Dublins job vacancy rate has fallen from 7.3% in 2013 to 7.1% in 2016.
This has helped to boost the sector, as has the fact that the demand for home-based design is higher than the supply.
The Dublin City and Carlows vacancy rate have both been falling over the last two years.
The jobs for 2018 will be the first in more than five years, as the Irish Home Design and Construction Council (IHDC) takes over the role of managing the sector.
In the first half of 2019, there will be around 20,000 vacancies in home design.
