Top Diploma Programs in Interior Design

Many people seeking new career opportunities choose to work toward a diploma. This is a one- to two-year program that imparts the skills and knowledge necessary to work in a specific career. It is typically available at community colleges, technical schools or online institutions.

What is a diploma in interior design? This type of program prepares students to design functional and aesthetically pleasing residential, institutional and commercial spaces. Students may learn to consider shape, color, texture and style when choosing and combining furnishings, lighting and materials to create a pleasing and functional look. They may learn to assess a client’s preferences and needs and to work within a set budget. They may also learn about historical and contemporary design styles and trends. Participants may learn to sketch and illustrate design concepts and use industry-specific software such as Photoshop and AutoCAD.

Completing an interior design program can open up new job opportunities, but participants can utilize their skills in their personal lives as well. They may learn to follow a budget and can use their design skills to arrange and adorn their own homes. 

Because it is a relatively short professional program a diploma can be an inexpensive path to a rewarding career. Some prestigious programs may be more costly. Students should contact schools directly for specific information.

An interior designer can apply their skills to a number of public and private spaces. They may take on domestic clients, helping others to beautify their homes and apartments. They can also apply design principles to public spaces such as airports, banks, hospitals, schools, post offices and museums. Commercial and hospitality venues such as retail stores, bars and hotels also employ interior designers. Graduates may even find work designing open spaces such as courtyards, playgrounds and public squares.

Students with an eye for detail and an interest in creating stylish spaces may choose to pursue a career in interior design. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
