First we will learn about the theory that goes into designing a bathroom experience. We will begin with an introductory session that will explain the general ideas of bathroom interior design and present a few of the main ideas that we will be working on in the next modules. Once we have established a basic foundation of information, we will have one lecture for each of the basic elements that go into bathroom design. These topic include lighting, ventilation, material selection, color theory, shape psychology, and more. The next section of topics are focused on learning about different bathroom situations like hotel bathrooms, mini bathrooms, restaurant bathrooms, and public restrooms. With this we will be identifying specific challenges each situation might entail and how to approach these projects with creative and interesting solutions. The last part of the theory lecturs will be a section on sustainable practices and project management or logistics. From water waste to energy use to green technology, we will look at practical examples of how to be more eco friendly and how to easily implement these things into our interiors.

For the practical project portion of the bathroom interior design course we will be working on designing a total of four bathroom designs. We will begin by creating a functional mini bathroom for a cabin in the woods. To design and present their designs, students will create models with SketchUp. No previous experience with this program is needed. During the course you will be introduced to everything needed in oreder to use SketchUp in your work. Next we will design a 70s inspired bathroom, with unique personalized mirrors and cabinets. Then we will work on a hotel bathroom project, designing two prototypes for a luxury hotel chain. Lastly, student will create a restaurant bathroom design complete with their brand identity. For each project, a presentation will be made showcasing the design process and the final results with renders, diagrams and other images depending on the project. With this completed, students will finish the course with a wide variety of knowledge and practical experience that will help them tackle future projects in any situation confidently, creatively, and professionally.
