What’s Included in an Interior Design Certificate Course?

If you’ve ever walked into a beautiful hotel or stately home and admired how it looked so put together, you’ve likely appreciated the work of an interior designer. It’s easy to think someone with a good sense of style somewhere just picked a bunch of furniture and placed it into a room, but interior designers work extremely hard to not only make sure a place looks a certain way, but the goals of the client hiring them are achieved.

What is interior design?

Interior design is both a science and an art. Interior designers must be exact in knowing what will fit into a space, how it will fit, and if the space is equipped for what has been selected. But what they select must also be aesthetically pleasing. Interior designers research, plan, coordinate, and manage design projects. They meet with clients to understand what they want out of a design, create a concept, and implement the plan. This takes more than having an eye for style and good communication skills; you’ll want credentials, like an Interior Design Certificate.

Why take an interior design certificate course?

An interior design certificate course can not only help you stand out from the crowd when it comes to getting hired but can also help you learn all the essential knowledge to start your career. With NYIAD’s course, you’ll study subjects like the basics of color, sketching rooms, furniture layout, fabrics, and different styles of furniture design such as English, French, American farmhouse, and 20th Century. You’ll also learn how to effectively communicate with clients, draft letters of agreement, and promotions and sales techniques. These fundamentals can help you build a strong foundation for your interior design career.

What’s included in NYIAD’s interior design certificate course?

NYIAD’s online Interior Design course is approved by the Designer Society of America (DSA). The DSA’s mission is to provide a supportive community of industry professionals and newcomers.
