Do you dream of having a beautiful new kitchen, but don’t know where to start?
Are you about to start a kitchen remodel, but you are already overwhelmed with all of the choices you have to make?
If this is you, then you have come to the right place!
Whether you are planning on simply updating your kitchen finishes or you are planning a complete kitchen gut remodel, the breadth of today’s kitchen options are truly incredible, and I am here to break it all down for you so that you feel confident in creating the perfect design for you.
This course really is the A-Z of kitchen design, covering the most important aspects of kitchen design, including, but not limited to:
- Realistic kitchen remodeling budgets and timelines
- Knowing what to ask your contractors to avoid costly mistakes
- Sorting through all of the functional and aesthetic decisions you’ll need to make during the kitchen design process including, but not limited to, layouts, cabinetry, lighting, window coverings, breakfast nooks, countertops, backsplashes, appliances, and hardware
- How to mix metal finishes in the kitchen like a Pro
- How to choose the best kitchen style for you and your home
- How to save money when purchasing countertops and backsplashes
- Learn the latest in innovative storage solutions and the best small kitchen design hacks
I’ll also provide you with some invaluable downloadable resources, first and foremost, a "Master Kitchen Design Planner", which we’ll complete together in the course, and once completed, will contain all of the design details you’ll need for your kitchen remodel. You’ll also be able to download my "Ultimate Kitchen Design Style Guide", which contains a wealth of information, covering the ideal finishes and selections for whichever style of kitchen you choose.
In short, kitchen design is complicated. Unless you are a seasoned interior designer who already has experience in kitchen design, I encourage you to enroll, as this course is ideal for both non-designers as well as professional interior designers who are new to the world of kitchen design. I look forward to seeing you in the course!
- If you are interested in taking most or all of my courses, I have a recommended order in which to watch them (although it's certainly not required). I would start with "How to Design a Room in 10 Easy Steps" because most of my other courses are in-depth classes of the concepts touched on in this 10 step class. Following the 10 Step Course, I suggest moving on to "How to Use Color Like a Pro", followed by "How to Work with Interior Design Styles Like a Pro", then "How to Use Lighting Design to Transform your Home", and finally "Design is in the Details". My other courses, "How to Use Minimalist Interior Design to Live your Best Life", "Use Eco-friendly, Sustainable Design to Improve Your Life", and "How to Design Your Dream Kitchen" are all stand alone classes on specialty topics within interior design, and therefore, can be taken in any order.
- Please be aware that this course, or any of my courses, is not intended to provide all of the knowledge needed to become a professional interior designer. As with any professional field, there is a significant amount of education and/or experience that is needed to achieve competency in this field. My intention with these courses is to provide some solid foundational knowledge to assist either those individuals interested in "DIY" interior design to work on their own projects more effectively, or to provide supplemental education to both interior design students and professionals.
What Students Are Saying
"This course has sooooo much useful and practical information! Very well designed and explained. Extremely happy with it." - Ann B.
"The most elaborate, all encompassing course on kitchens ever! Everything you need to think about or consider is definitely mentioned in it + so much more that matters but it didn't cross your mind before. I can't recommend it enough! I loved the detailed 10 pages questionnaire for clarifying your vision of the perfect kitchen. If you want to know about EVERYTHING that relates to building a kitchen and why you need it (or don't need it) with all pros and cons - take this course!" - Iva P.
"I am planning my kitchen renovation and have spent so much time researching for information online. This course is fantastic! It has put together all the necessary information which I need in terms of both the art and science behind kitchen renovation. It has not only saved me some time but showed me what are the important things I should consider to avoid future problems. I now feel more confident in my renovation discussions with my contractor. Thank you so much, Erikka!" - Iris T.
Hi, I'm Erikka Fogleman, owner of Erikka Dawn Interiors. In addition to designing beautiful and functional interiors for clients, I also teach classes online for interior design enthusiasts, interior design students, and interior design professionals.
Through my classes, I will show you how many areas of interior design can be broken down into simple-to-use processes and formulas, so that you can be successful in creating beautiful rooms all on your own using an easy, systematic approach.
I’ve been designing and redesigning rooms for as long as I can remember – first for myself, then for friends and family, and finally, after graduating from the Interior Design program at the New York Institute of Art and Design, I decided to make it my full-time career. Today, I own my own thriving interior design business. While I would love to see everyone hire an interior designer, I know that it's not feasible or desired by everyone, so I've created easy-to-understand classes to break down the "science" of design. Quite simply because everyone should love their home.
I hope you’ll join me in some or all of my classes, so you, too, can learn how to create your dream home!
