Imagine Your Career in Residential Design

Roommeme's Diploma in Residential Interiors builds on the Certificate in Interior Design Fundamentals and provides the opportunity for students to further their education in the residential field.

Upon completion of the first two terms of the Diploma in Residential Interiors, students who choose to complete the practicum and exit with an Associate Certificate in Kitchen and Bath Design will have acquired the necessary competencies in kitchen and bath design, based on the NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association) curriculum requirements, and will have the necessary educational requirements to write the NKBA’s AKBD exam to become an Associate Kitchen and Bath Designer.

Students that complete the courses in the third and fourth terms of the program and graduate with a Diploma in Residential Interiors will have the skills and credential needed to work beyond the kitchen and bath industries in the broader residential interiors field.
