    • About the Course

      A kitchen is the most important design feature of a residential project. It’s also the single largest cost item in a project budget.

      It is imperative that designers have a good understanding of the foundations that ensure a kitchen is functional, serviceable and aesthetically pleasing. When operating at a more advanced level, designers can elevate a mere kitchen into a spectacular piece of design that will provide clients with an investment that lasts a lifetime.

      This 2-part online course will step you through the process of designing a kitchen from concept through to completion. In a series of easy-to-follow modules, we’ll review the best methods of documenting designs to effectively communicate your vision (at both basic and advanced level), ensure accurate quoting and assist in the successful manufacture and installation of the finished kitchen.

      In Part 1: Basic Kitchen Design, we share with you the foundations from which you can create a functional and beautiful design for your clients. Access our Supplier Guide for a range of quality manufacturers providing products at affordable prices.

      In Part 2: Advanced Kitchen Design, we take your designs to the next level through a review of top-level kitchen designs and the process behind those designs. Access our Advanced Level Supplier Guide for manufacturers and suppliers that will elevate your kitchen designs to the next level.
