Thinking of updating your home or office window furnishings? With so many options available, choosing the right supplier is crucial. Whether you're looking for blinds, shutters, awnings or curtains, finding a reliable and experienced provider is the key to transforming your space.
Not sure where to start? Let’s look at some helpful tips for when you're on the hunt for the right supplier to update, enhance or transform your home or business space:
Sticking with the Local Legends
When it comes to picking a supplier, you can't go wrong with a local team who know their stuff. Choosing a family-owned, homegrown business that's been around the block and are genuinely committed to looking after you as a valued customer, is a great first start. Local businesses also typically bring a personal touch and offer customised solutions that are spot-on for the local environment. Worried about salt air impacting your beachside home’s furnishings? A local provider will understand what works and what doesn’t, depending on the solution you’re looking for.
Convenience is King
Let's face it, no one wants to deal with unnecessary hassles when it comes to choosing home décor and window coverings. So, it's a great idea to check if the supplier can come to you. You read that right – see if they’ll come to your front door to save you time exploring showrooms and explaining your needs. This not only makes life easier but also helps you see how the products look right in your own home. Plus, an experienced consultant can give you the lowdown on what works best for your specific space. Look out for a supplier who offers an obligation free measure and quote!
Let the Pros Install It
Dodgy workmanship? No thanks! You want to be sure the installation is done by experienced professional installers who know a perfect fit when they see one. And, of course, a friendly customer service crew ready to support you throughout the process is key to a smooth experience.
Quality, Not Compromise
Quality, quality, quality – that's what it's all about when you're in the market for window coverings. Ask your supplier about the materials they’re using and where it’s sourced from. Pick a supplier who takes pride in the products they sell and knows where they come from.
Make It Yours, No Compromises
Your place should be as unique as you are, and that includes your window coverings. So, make sure you ask about customisation. Can you pick the materials, styles, and colours that mesh perfectly with your home's unique style? The best suppliers will have a great range of finishes to help you create window coverings that are a perfect match for you and your home.
Keeping It Cool
We all know Aussie summers can be a scorcher, and that's why energy efficiency is absolutely essential. It's worth asking the consultant how their window coverings can help keep your place cool when the heatwaves roll in. You're looking for something that can help regulate your home's temperature, let you turn down the aircon and keep your energy bills in check.
Budget Friendly Solutions
Not looking to break the bank? Ask about finance and interest free options. Some suppliers even offer price matching schemes - keep an eye out for competitor deals and seasonal sales!
When you've got all these answers under your belt, you'll be well-prepared to pick the best supplier for your window furnishings this Aussie summer.
