Working with a Design Consultant on your Window Coverings

posted in: Blinds | 0

If you’re in the market for new blinds or shades, you might know exactly what you’re looking for, but often a great selection of newly released or new-to-you products can change one’s mind early in the process. Usually when this happens it isn’t due to stylistic choices – deciding what’s the right fit for your home is sometimes a personal matter. More often, it’s with finding the right combination of function and style that customers seek out help – and that’s where a professional design consultant comes in.

It’s no secret that a large part of what we do here at Affordable Blinds is to provide you with the best quality window treatments available, but putting great window covering of all colours, shapes and sizes on sale at an extremely great value is by no means the limit of our services. Knowing that consultants are available, however, isn’t necessarily all you need to get motivated to take advantage of the help they have to offer – so here’s a bit more information on how design consultant can help you.

There’s nothing wrong with seeking the advice of a design expert when doing any kind of remodelling in your home. In fact, considering that people often quickly grow tired of the design choices they make in haste, getting the advice of a professional might actually save you money in the long run.

For anyone trying to decide on new window treatments, it can be a great benefit to have such a huge selection of Hunter Douglas shades and blinds available, but it can also be daunting to sort through a large selection of options to find what works for you. Even if you already have a few excellent ideas in mind, you can always make the final result better with the help of a professional.

When it comes to home décor, there’s what’s popular and practical, and then there’s what suits you best. At the end of the day, it’s always up to you whether or not you take a consultant’s advice; after all, it’s your home and the designing consultant is there to help you find out what’s going to match your home and give you all the options you want.

A good designing consultant will start by getting to know you and your preferences. They’ll also get to know your home and try to get a sense of what’s going to work for you regarding style and colour by offering you a peek at our collection of window treatment finishes to get a better sense of where your tastes and preferences fall.

After you’ve worked together to establish the direction where you’d like to take your home, you’ll work together to consider the question of functionality. These aspects of your window treatments that have less to do with fashion might include questions regarding whether you are looking to cut down on heat or cold in your home, or whether you want to block light out or allow more light in. 

Getting professional advice is always a good option, especially when you’re making an update to your home. If you want to be sure that you’ll be absolutely satisfied with the style of your window coverings be sure to get the help of a professional designing consultant.
