‘I thought I knew all I needed to know about Kitchen Design, having been in the business for 10+ years… I was wrong! Signing up to the Kitchen Design Cert. I felt added credibility to my title, but its proving to be much more than that. The Block course taught by Mark Bruce, was inspiring, engaging and informative, not to mention having the opportunity to mix with a bunch of other like minded & talented individuals. The course work is proving to be challenging, opens my work up to critical and important feedback, and most importantly enjoyable! I would highly recommend this course whether you are currently a professional in the Kitchen Design space, or considering it, you have nothing to lose, you’ll be surprised by what you gain’.

I could relax as I had proof that the designer knew what she was doing. The whole design process went very smoothly and I am delighted with the end result.
