Interior design at LASALLE is defined as the act of creating environments within and around existing spaces and structures. As a profession, it covers the design and planning of an immense range of places including, but not limited to domestic, leisure, retail, office, health care, hospitality, and institutional spaces. It is also closely interwoven with various design disciplines like architecture and industrial design.

Interior design at LASALLE is not a course on interior decoration, nor is it the pursuit of architecture under the guise of interior design. You will focus on the creation of experiential environments from the perspective of users, and the discovery of new typologies of space. You will look to the conceptual to challenge convention, habits, and trends, and seek to explore the controversial, unexpected, and emergent, with the onus on critical design thinking and intense involvement in the design process.

The curriculum is based on a number of key design principles. Design processes and conceptual thinking methodologies are explored in a practice-based studio environment and supported with core discipline skills that involve a critical understanding of design history and contemporary theory; technical knowledge on building materials and technology; traditional drafting and modelling techniques, as well as the latest in computer-aided drawing and visualisation. Through the course of study, you are exposed to the demands of the profession with a continuous engagement in local and international design competitions, live projects, and exhibitions.

The objective is to create an ecosystem of significant designers and dynamic professionals who display a restless curiosity of mind, making informed design decisions tempered by a sense of social responsibility, where interior design is not a matter of simply aligning oneself with fashionable trends but rather a discipline of reason, necessity, analysis, meaning, and the creation of new spatial experience.

Level 1 grounds you in basic methods of design that are centred around a specialised Studio Practice module.

At Level 2, a greater emphasis is placed on honing critical and analytical skills.

The course culminates at Level 3. with you undertaking self-directed briefs and engaging in complex real-world concerns. Opportunities for employment are plentiful within the plethora of interior design and architectural practices, covering both commercial and domestic sectors. There are also opportunities in exhibition, set design, interior styling, and design consultancy. Graduates have found their place in numerous reputable interior and architectural firms or have successfully established their own practices locally and internationally.

We were actively shown around and referred places for home decor, interiors, wall papers and other home accents.

Mr.Jyotish was always a call away and at our disposal for any home designing needs. I being a CA usually conclude by deciding whether the service was worth the cost charged and the end of it all. i must say i’m at a benefit.

When browsing kitchen designs on Houzz, look for layouts that will suit your home and lifestyle. Next, think about the type of appliances you want to include, and where you will position them. Kitchen storage and benchtop space will be your next priority. The style of your home will then influence materials and finishes. Read on to find out more.

Which kitchen layouts are best suited to my home and lifestyle?

Deciding on a kitchen layout can be tough, but getting it right is crucial to your kitchen design. U-shaped, single wall and galley kitchen designs are popular choices when space is tight. In a galley kitchen, you can have kitchen cabinets on both sides to maximise storage space. Otherwise, you could use one side as an island bench. If you want a small kitchen design that will open up to the outdoors, a single-wall kitchen is a great option – but will always be on display, so choose easy-to-clean materials and surfaces. U-shaped kitchens are highly functional and provide maximum kitchen storage in a tight space, utilising the ‘golden triangle’ so that everything is within easy reach. Perhaps one of the most popular kitchen layouts, the L-shaped kitchen offers ample space for cabinets and benchtops, and gives you the option to add a dining zone, but does require more floor space.

Where should I position appliances?

The paths between your kitchen sink, stovetop, oven and fridge should be quick, direct and obstacle-free. The classic ‘working triangle’ method – where the fridge, stovetop and sink are arranged in a triangle formation, no more than 2.7 metres apart – is most popular. However, if you have more appliances, you will need an alternative way to zone your kitchen. Ideally, your fridge should be in close range to your prep space, kitchen island or benchtop, as well as any cabinets used for food storage. The kitchen bin should also remain close to the prep zone, so you don’t have to run across the kitchen risking spills on the floor. Your oven, stovetop and range hood should sit adjacent to your prep zone or kitchen benchtop, or otherwise opposite it. In a galley kitchen or island layout, avoid having your stovetop and sink directly opposite one another, for safety reasons. And finally, keep your kitchen sink and dishwasher close to one another, but separated from the prep and cook zone.

How do I choose the right kitchen sink?

Kitchen sinks come in a variety of styles and materials, but choosing the right one should go beyond aesthetics. Stainless steel sinks are the most popular because they’re durable, hygienic and easy to clean, but they can scratch and do show up streaks. If you want to add rustic character to a country kitchen or traditional-style kitchen, a farmhouse sink is an increasingly popular choice, but porcelain sinks do show up grime and the hard surface can result in breakages. How you prep, cook and clean up will determine how many sinks you have, too. If you do lots of washing up, like to rinse and drain in a separate bowl, or even like to use one to throw scraps when prepping food, two or more will save your sanity. Other things to take into consideration are size, shape and accessories.

What materials and finishes should I use in my kitchen design?

The style and era of your home will have a big impact on the materials and finishes you use for benchtops, cabinets, drawers and your splashback. Quartz is possibly the most common material for kitchen benchtops, followed by granite and polished concrete, which is becoming increasingly popular. Laminate benchtops, on the other hand, are the most affordable, while marble is the most expensive. Kitchen cabinets can come in laminate, 2-pack, veneer or solid timber in hi gloss, matt, and semi-gloss finishes. If you want to add a splash of colour to your kitchen, try a mosaic tile. To create more light and open up the space, try a window splashback that has a view to the outside, or, if that’s not an option, a mirror splashback.
