Interior designing is all about creating spaces that are not only aesthetically appealing but also comfortable & functional. A well-considered & designed space allows the best use of a floor area & has a direct influence on mood & user well being.

All rooms are first and foremost functional spaces, in which we live, eat, entertain, sleep, read, dress, bathe etc. If the room does not meet its first critical criteria of functionality – it really won’t matter how beautiful it looks!

So before you begin to consider how the room will look and feel, you need to plan the space.


All of our courses have been designed to be stand-alone courses and can be done in any order. However, if you are interested in taking all of our courses – we’d like to recommend an order in which to do them (although it’s not required):
