Diploma in Interior Design & Decoration
The Diploma course in Interior Design & Decoration is an in-depth course that covers the fundamentals of interior design and decoration, preparing you for a career in the interior design industry. Any interior design consultant working with interior spaces must have the skill and ability to select appropriate colour and style details, as this is the only way to create interior schemes that are visually attractive and coherent.
To do this effectively, you need to have a thorough understanding of the elements of style and design, so that you can successfully deconstruct and reconstruct any style effectively, making changes and adaptations to reflect the individual preferences of your client.
Developing these skills play a significant part in this interior design and decoration course, however the program goes beyond mere interior decoration; teaching you the fundamentals of professional interior design by planning interior layouts, designing soft-furnishings and lighting schemes, and learning how to communicate your ideas professionally to both clients and contractors...
It is a relatively small percentage of residential clients who hire an interior designer to make major renovations that affect the structure of the building. The majority of homeowners prefer to work with their existing structure and use surface finishes and furnishings to create a style that is visually pleasing, coherent, and reflective of their own personality.
With so much choice available to us it’s easy for the untrained person to make expensive mistakes and that is why so many residential clients will seek the services of a professional consultant, so they can get it right first time! If this is the area you are interested in then the high standard of skills and knowledge you will attain with this interior design and decoration course will undoubtedly give you a strong competitive edge in the residential marketplace.
On successful completion of this course you will be able to provide clients with design solutions that are as practical as they are visually pleasing, and you will have sufficient skills and knowledge to implement your changes successfully.
Students of this course are eligible to join CID (Certified Interior Decorators) International as student members and they may progress to full professional membership status once they graduate from the course. Essentially, this interior design course is a professional training program for individuals interested in designing interior schemes, primarily for residential clients.
If you are thinking more seriously about building a career in interior design and would like the opportunity to continue your studies in more depth (i.e. up to degree level) and qualify for licensing (where applicable), then we would encourage you to consider enrolling in the Higher National Diploma (Edexcel HND) in Interior Design & Interior Architecture.
