About Our Program
Are you fascinated by shows on HGTV such as Fixer Upper, Property Brothers, or Rehab Addict? Do you love watching their designs come to life?
If so, then the Interior Design program at HFC may be for you. Our program offers you the knowledge, technical skills and professional presentation techniques necessary for a rewarding career in the field of interior design. You will be able to harness your personal style and passion to bring your designs to life, and possess the foundation to pursue industry career options or further your education at a four-year college or university.
Our program emphasizes the interior design process from conceptualization to development. You will learn tools for artistic visualization, including drawing, sketching, model-making, rendering, technical drawing/hand-drafting, CAD and computer-generated 3D modeling. You will also learn how to effectively manage projects and communicate with clients, architects, vendors and other consultants. You will also have the opportunity to apply all of your learning in a capstone project where you design for a real-life client.
If you're interested in specializing in kitchen and bath design, our Kitchen and Bath certificate is one of two NKBA-supported programs in the state of Michigan. You will be prepared to take the NKBA certification exams, compete in national student design competitions and gain immediate employment in the kitchen and bath industry.
