When it comes to choosing curtains and blinds, finding the perfect solution for your home isn’t always the easiest of decisions. Having the expertise of a dedicated designer to guide you through your options is perhaps the best way to ensure a beautiful result. However, with just one search on Google, the majority of us are presented with hundreds of companies.
The question is, while you can narrow down to perhaps a handful within your own area, how do you know which is the best company to choose? Who will help you bring your vision to life and guide you in a way that brings out the best, while also taking into consideration your own style and needs?
Look for experience
For anyone with period houses, architectural new builds and renovations, or unusually shaped windows, it’s always crucial to look for a company with plenty of experience. You will be looking for a designer who’s encountered a wide array of obstacles and overcome them with ease. An expert in the field will be able to look at your window space and know instantly what will work and how they can bring your vision to life.
Check out their gallery
A great way to check that someone can produce what you’re looking for is to find examples of what they’ve done previously. Someone may have great experience, but if they’ve only ever worked in traditional style homes, then they may not be best suited to your contemporary vision. Instagram can be a fantastic source of inspiration as well as research.
Enjoy a consultation
When it comes to choosing the right curtain and blind supplier, it isn’t simply a case of picking someone and sending your designs. Take part in a consultation first! Meet the designer in question and use it as the perfect opportunity to ask as many questions as you can. Are they the right fit? Do they offer their own advice and guidance? Do they hold a range of beautiful fabrics for you to view?
Look for someone who understands you
Sometimes your vision and the space you’re working with don’t easily come together. Often it is simpler to be encouraged to choose a design alternative which overcomes an issue, but which doesn’t achieve the effect you were after. With the right designer however, there are always ways and means to get around just about anything to get you the right result, and as such having someone who understands you is paramount.
