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.

easy to follow in 9 reviews

So easy to follow, Course was beneficial & basic.

Really easy to follow instructions for a complete beginner Good course but missing rendering tutorial The course is very helpful but hard to catch up with the fast pace using the computer while explaining steps, and posted some posts to the discussion board since months, but no response so far, same goes with other recent posts up to 3 months back, other than that the course is very good.

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.

Easy to follow can't find the same icons as the tutorial This course is great for me, someone who has never used designing software and who will be using it for home projects.

sketch up in 8 reviews

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

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.

The videos are for an outdated version so that the instructions given do not even match how Sketch Up works now.

Before this course I fear to learn sketch up BTW.

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

Maybe Mac and PC Sketch up is different.

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.

interior design in 7 reviews

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.

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.

She is very inspirational and I learned a lot from her about interior design on her YouTube channels where she shares her knowledge with others.

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

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.

enjoy which this course and learn more about interior design good overview​ still need to learn more The course is very well explained!

so much in 6 reviews

Clear, straight forward explanations, step by step learning approach is teaching me so much.

Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for this course.

I had so much fun learning from the two instructors.

have learnt so much in such a short amount of time It started wonderful by teaching how to build walls and features of the room.

Very well explained - so much better than any other Sketchup tutorial I've watched.

Only a few videos in and I'm learning so much so far!

robeson design in 5 reviews

I wanna to thank you all Robeson Design team <3 Because I learnt very valuable information !

If you want to learn Interior design, Robeson design is the one!!

I can't wait for another series of videos from Robeson Design.

I personally had no experiences with any software like SketchUp before but barely had any difficulties to follow Robeson Design's steps as they slowly explained each step and repeated a lot.

Robeson design itself is fabulous!

several times in 4 reviews

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

I had to replay several times, and still did not get it all.

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

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.
