Design Essentials for Modular Kitchens
Online – for students all over Australia.
Design Essentials for Modular Kitchens Short Course is for those wanting to design and produce documentation for modular kitchens (ie design kitchens using a predetermined selection of cabinet sizes, finishes and colours).
This course is focused on the design and documentation of modular kitchens. You will learn about elements and principles of design, design trends, styles and technologies. From undertaking the Client interview and developing a design checklist, you will plan, document and present modular kitchen concepts. This includes learning about industry standard sizes and conventions in the construction of cabinets and components, kitchen layouts and work zones and product knowledge to apply to the selection of materials. Concept designs are developed using 3D CAD. 2D CAD is used to develop a floor plan considering industry drawing conventions. This course will equip you to respond to the challenges of a design project and present your concept to the client.
