What Does It Mean to Be A Certified Designer?

Being certified as a kitchen and bath designer has two-fold meaning. This gives assurance to the public, signifying the individual is devoted to the craft of designing kitchens and baths as well as identifies the designer as an industry leader and expert in their field. The designer must meet a series of guidelines.


Why Do Certified Designers Need Guidelines?

Guidelines followed in the certification process ensure that the designer is able to recognize the importance of consumer health, safety, and welfare in kitchen and bath design. Also, these guidelines can be used as benchmarks to assess a designer’s work and allows them to be tested in core competencies related specifically to kitchen and bath design. As a consumer, you will be happy that our certified designers follow and meet these guidelines, as this leads to higher quality professionals available for you.
