Create pretty yet practical kitchens and bathrooms.
What does a Kitchen and Bath Designer do?
A Kitchen and Bath Designer plans and executes the design of kitchens and bathrooms. This is a specialty within the Interior Designer profession. Your daily tasks as a Kitchen and Bath Designer might include sketching out designs, fixing a plumbing issue, going shopping with your customers to find and price sink designs, or overseeing the construction as your design is implemented.
Though kitchens and bathrooms might seem to be somewhat of an odd pairing, both room designs require a similar focus on functionality due to their high use. They also revolve around several large, indispensable appliances, like a refrigerator or a toilet, instead of furniture and accessories. As bath design is not a large enough field to sustain many specialized professionals, it tends to be subsumed into the specialty of a Kitchen Designer because of the similarities mentioned above.
Given these defining features of each room, as the Kitchen and Bath Designer, you focus your design on the structure and the aesthetics of functionality. Cabinetry and appliances take up a lot of space in both rooms, so your design must focus on incorporating them in a pleasant and easy to use manner.
Tile, stainless steel faucet designs, and custom cabinetry pricing will be old hat for you before long. In fact materials, in general, will be key in your inventory, as your clients are less familiar with various granite strains than they are with the wicker vs. wood furniture debate. And storage – you’ll learn to love, hide, and shove storage into lots of little spaces.
