      Enhance Your Kitchen and Bath Design Skills

      In the spaces where we live and work, the kitchen and bath areas offer opportunities for unique, creative and functional designs. The creative individuals who design these rooms can envision how one space can have many uses—how a kitchen can be used as both a cooking area and gathering spot, and how a bath can become a dressing area—or even a luxurious retreat.

      In the Kitchen & Bath Design Associate Degree program at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division, students will learn how kitchens and baths are the most utilized rooms in any house, and are potentially the most multi-dimensional.

      Students in this program begin with a strong artistic foundation—classes in drawing, perspective, drafting and color. They then move on to courses that provide practical expertise based on The National Kitchen and Bath Association’s guidelines.

      Students will also:

      • Utilize industry specific CAD software in order to plan kitchen and bath spaces in a residential setting
      • Study lighting and materials
      • Study building systems and codes along with products and appliances
      • Gain skills in business fundamentals such as budgets and estimates and project bidding
      • Gain an introduction to public relations, marketing and promotions

      Additionally, students will undertake two internships to gain real-world experience and help build their professional portfolio.

      *Some programs are not available in all states. To find out if your program is available in your state, please contact an admissions representative prior to enrollment.

      Career Portrait

      According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “Employment for interior designers in specialized design firms is expected to grow by 27 percent from 2010 to 2020. As interior designers focus on increasingly specialized design areas, there will be a greater need for them to collaborate with other designers and in other design-related fields.”

      The BLS adds, “Interior designers who specialize, such as those who design kitchens, may benefit by becoming an expert in their particular area. By specializing in a unique area of design, interior designers can use their knowledge of products to better fulfill customer requests.”
