Design your Room Using Sketchup

This course will guide you through two exciting elements of design: the SketchUp 3D modeling program and the interior design principles that have allowed the instructor and interior designer, Rebecca Robeson, to create award-winning bedrooms.

If you're interested in interior design, even if it's just to improve the way your home flows and feels, this fun course will show you how to apply basic design techniques that will make your home look like it was professionally designed.

Master Basic Interior Design Principles You Can Easily Apply

  • Create a virtual model of a sample bedroom using SketchUp
  • Learn how to properly arrange furniture to make the most of a bedroom space
  • Choose the best paint colors, accessories, and lighting for a bedroom

Use the SketchUp 3D Modeling Program to Design the Perfect Bedroom

Whether you're an interior designer, someone who's interested in interior design, or someone who simply wants to make their home look its best, this course will show you how to download and use the easy-to-learn interior design program, SketchUp, to design a samplebedroom.

Once you're comfortable designing this sample bedroom, you can then use the same principles to create your own dream bedroom as well as other rooms throughout your home.

Contents and Overview

The first half of this course will focus on how to use SketchUp.

You'll download it, set up your toolbar, and create the walls of your room. You'll also master the paint tool, as well as the doors, windows, and component library.

Once the room is set up as a 3D model, you can move on to the second half of the course, which focuses on decorating a bedroom virtually before tackling it in the real world.

You'll begin with furniture placement so you can set every piece of furniture, from your bed to your nightstand, in its optimal place. This includes choosing the right wall that your bed should be placed against.

A great design also encompasses the right wall colors and artwork, so you'll tackle how to select the best wall colors, and you'll understand the role that art plays in your design so you can choose the right pieces to display.

Accessories and lighting, as well as area rugs and window treatments, will serve to complete the look of your sample bedroom and bring everything together, so you'll learn how to find complementary décor and where to place it.

By the end of this course, you'll know how to use SketchUp to create customized designs for every room in your home, not just your bedroom. You will be ready to move on to the next level by creating your own completely scaled bedroom, providing you the opportunity to design your own virtual reality dream bedroom.

You'll even be invited to post screenshots of your design on the Robeson Design Facebook page to show off your new skills.

The videos are of very high quality, they are very easy to follow along and so far I am really enjoying it.

easy to follow step by step explanation really helpful for my project Not what I thought I will see Greyson is very methodical in his teaching approach.

Very good and easy to follow.

Its great, but majority is shown an Apple Mac, as a user of Windows sometimes its not so easy to follow.

Easy to follow.

Just started, but very practical & useful this far Easy to follow and concise instructions to quickly get up and working with Sketchup.

It is good and easy to follow but sometimes it fails to teach some basics that could in fact not be so obvious to beginners.

sketch up

Before this course I fear to learn sketch up BTW.

Minus the fact that my sketch up was a little different from your version.

Learned the ropes for beginning Sketch Up but would like to see more advanced options.

Can't wait for the advanced course :) Course is very interesting but before you enrolled you must have some knowledge about sketch up and Rebecca.

I gave this program 4 1/2 stars because Ithe is a good beginner primer on Google sketch up.

If I didn't have prior knowledge about sketch up I would not be able to follow along unless I keep rewatching and pausing the video to identify what the instructor is refering to at times, i.e.

I think it is a good taste of sketch up for a beginner.

interior design

I found her on Youtube not long ago & Rebecca awakened my once upon a time passion for interior design.

Love your decor tips Rebecca of the "no-nos" I would like to see more of Rebecca's sketchup & interior design tutorials.

For its cheap price, the course was really worth it and I would definitely recommend it to others who are beginners in interior design!

Rebecca Robeson makes interior design principles very easy to understand and implement in your own projects during her design sessions, and this software is a great tool to practice and test out your ideas.

Don't expect a lot of interior design concepts though, everything taught here is closely tied to the sample dormitory.

I wish it had more interior design tips on why put this there, how to choose colours, etc.

Really easy to follow instructions for a complete beginner enjoy which this course and learn more about interior design good overview​ still need to learn more The course is very well explained!

follow along

However, I didn't like the fact that this course was specifically for MAC users, kind of hard to follow along with a PC, plus it was hard to follow two different teaching styles within one tutorial.

The videos make it so easy for me to follow along.

several times

There are instances when I have to watch parts of the videos several times because the instructions/video are too quick and the explanations are not clear.

I did have to pause and replay the video several times along the way, but not enough to really have any issues.

Several times it moved very quickly and I paused the video to catchup which worked well.
