Once considered a luxury or an afterthought, people now view customized organization as an indispensable part of maximizing space. With Spring quickly approaching, more and more homeowners are realizing the value of multifunctional, custom storage solutions.
Before you dive into your next project, itÊ¼s worth the research to find a company that meets your expectations. The following tips will help you identify a professional that not only delivers a great product, but a great experience too.
1) Look for an established company. Newer companies can provide great service and product, but a company with many years in business is more likely to be there to back up warranties and match original installations.
2) Think professional designers, not salespeople. A true expert has an extensive background in interior design, architecture, general contracting and/or home organization. The advantage of a real designer is that he or she is trained to combine form and function in a way that matches your personal style and lifestyle.
3) Check out their blog and social media. Every company has a story to tell including brand history, internal innovation and fun customer feedback. Blogs and interactive apps provide an outlet to share telling information that can influence a purchase decision.
4) Research reviews from prior customers. Referrals are a great way to get an idea of what sort of experience a company delivers. CustomersÊ¼ first-hand accounts of their experiences are available through Google +, Houzz and Yelp.
5) Preview their work in person. Companies with showrooms tend to be better established because they provide an abundance of vignettes for prospective customers. This allows them to get a first-hand glance at how a finished project will look and feel.
6) Remember, materials and hardware matter. Make sure the company you choose offers a variety of finishes, from wood to laminate, and can explain their benefits in more detail than just price. A company that works with wood will have a higher level of skill than companies working exclusively with laminates.
7) Consider where the pieces are being made. A company with in-house manufacturing is advantageous in terms of greater control over your project and a higher level of customization. Additionally, further changes, added work, and product quality are better managed in-house.
8) Read their guarantee and installation agreement. A guarantee not only protects your investment but it shows that the provider takes your satisfaction, and their reputation, seriously. A legitimate company will also have its own installation crews rather than subcontractors.
9) Make sure they have a dedicated service department. Some companies have dedicated field technicians solely devoted to handling service requests. This can speed up response time and result in expert customer service.
