Kitchen and bath designers are interior designers who specialize in planning and decorating kitchens and bathrooms. Aspiring kitchen and bath designers usually complete a bachelor's degree in interior design, though associate's-level programs are also available. Programs specifically in kitchen and bath design are offered at some schools. Following their degree, candidates often obtain apprenticeship experience. Licensure is required in some states, and voluntary certification from the National Kitchen and Bath Association is available to designers.
Depending on their experience level and also on the size of the design firm they work for, fashion designers may have varying levels of involvement in some or all of these process steps. Some fashion designers are self-employed. They generally work for individual clients on a contract or on a job-by-job basis. These types of designers tend to have sporadic working hours, often needing to make adjustments to their workday (or work nights) to meet deadlines. Other designers are employed by manufacturing establishments, wholesalers, or design firms, creating designs for the mass market. These types of designers generally tend to have a more normal work schedule, although even they will occasionally need to work long hours to meet production deadlines or prepare for fashion shows.
