Northolt, Middlesex ( Kazor ) July 5, 2012 – With top universities and colleges now offering interior design-based courses to students of all ages, Todd Doors, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of external and internal doors and door furniture, believes Britain now leads the world in design education.
Over fifty universities and colleges across the UK now give students, DIY fanatics and proud home owners the opportunity to attain a degree specialising in interior design, with many of the most coveted schools located in London- Kingston and InterContinental University, for example.
Courses can certainly help a student kick-start their career in the industry, but fierce competition amongst applicants means places are limited.
Todd Doors claims that it’s not just younger designers hogging university places either: students from as far away as China and Japan are flocking to the UK to enhance their credentials, as well as midlife career changers interested in interior design. Even established designers, already working in the industry, are applying.
“We’ve got some of the world’s best design schools here in the UK” said a spokesperson for the company.
“With so much talent bursting through the system, it’s no wonder interest in courses is so high.”
“As one of the UK’s leading timber door suppliers, we’re conscious of the changing trends and stylistic influences affecting door design. Of course we aim to be at the forefront: offering our customers a myriad collection of doors to suit their own personal tastes and needs.”
With two established showrooms in London and Bournemouth, Todd doors boast one of the largest collections of interior and exterior doors and door furniture in the United Kingdom. Their collection of Interior and exterior doors epitomises the current demand for modern furniture, with the company priding itself on stocking the very latest in door design. Todd Doors also houses a vast selection of contemporary door furniture, including brass door knobs and their popular, Italian designed, chrome door handles.
