You’ve addressed your client’s lifestyle and functional needs, and you’ve efficiently laid out their space with proper ergonomics. But responding to the client’s most earnest aesthetic question “Is this going to look good?” is a different game. Unfortunately, the design theory we learned in school hasn’t prepared us to confidently answer this important question.
In this webinar, Liza Riguerra will present a step-by-step approach for creating a beautiful kitchen design, every time. Her novel approach breaks down the esoteric, and sometimes mysterious, principles of aesthetic design and organizes them into straightforward and practical tips and advice.
We’ll start by describing the two things that you absolutely must have in a great-looking design. She’ll offer practical tips such as: 1) how to use color effectively and avoid common color missteps, 2) how to achieve a pleasing amount of contrast between elements and 3) how and where to add visual interest as the finishing touch to a design.
Liza will also address common design challenges—the small kitchen, the tall ceiling, the awkwardly placed window—and how to turn these challenges into design assets. In addition, Liza will explain her design process by presenting inspiring examples of both traditional and contemporary kitchens. Along with many “Aha!” moments, webinar attendees will leave with practical tips that will immediately and noticeably improve their aesthetic design.
At the end of this session, you will:
- Outline a step-by-step approach to create a beautiful design, every time. Discover the two things every great design must have.
- Develop strategies for incorporating visual interest into a design.
- Determine how to address common design challenges and turn them into design assets.
