Free Face-to-face Advice from Experienced Kitchen Designers
Nothing beats face-to-face interaction to help you make informed decisions. When you search the Internet for kitchen showrooms Brisbane and plan your visit, you’ve created the opportunity to talk one-on-one with experienced kitchen designers. You can pick their brains, and ask as many questions as time permits. This can help you rule out products that may have sounded great, based on your research, but aren’t practical in the flesh. It can also open your eyes to new possibilities as well as exposing you to layouts and designs you may not have considered. The process can save you lots of time compared to trying to find out particular details about each product online, and it can help you design the best kitchen possible.
At Express Kitchens many of our showroom visitors go on to become customers. We think this is partly because their visit gives them the chance to see that we know what we’re talking about and that we offer quality products. Customer visits also help us learn about our customer’s tastes and goals for their new kitchen so we are best equipped to fulfil their vision.
The Advantages of Seeing Products in the Flesh
When you visit kitchen showrooms Brisbane, you’ll get an all-encompassing sensory experience. You can open and close cabinet drawers, run your hands across benchtop surfaces, take your shoes off and feel the flooring beneath your feet. This hands-on contact is invaluable. In fact, according to a 2013 study, not being able to touch products is the number one reason consumers list for preferring to shop in traditional stores as opposed to online (Havas Worldwide, 2013).
Visiting a kitchen showroom allows you to see the true colour, size and shape of different products as well as to assess the quality of workmanship and even the sound cupboards make when opened and closed. When you order online and the delivered product is not what you expect, you have to wear the cost and time-loss. Visiting kitchen showrooms in Brisbane can help you save dollars by making sure that when you make your financial investment, you’re buying the ideal product.
The Extra Costs of Online Shopping vs Visiting Kitchen Showrooms in Brisbane
Did you know that online shopping makes it ridiculously easy to impulse-buy? According to American online retail expert John D. Wells, once we’ve provided an online store with our credit card details and address (proof that we trust the store) this leads us to engage in more impulsive buying behaviour. It doesn’t help that all you have to do is click a mouse (rather than standing in line at a checkout which gives you pause to reflect on what you’re buying).
Now impulse buying is fine, if you’re purchasing $2.50 socks or cheap plastic earrings, but it’s not really how you want to approach shopping for a new kitchen. Your kitchen will last for decades and is a significant investment. The last thing you want to do is waste your money impulse buying items you may not need, or find you don’t really like on further reflection!
How to Get Ready to Visit Kitchen Showrooms in Brisbane and surrounds
To get the best out of your visit to kitchen showrooms in Brisbane, there is some prep you can do beforehand like taking measurements of the dimensions of every space in your kitchen. This helps the kitchen designers direct you towards products that will actually fit your space!
Other than that though, that’s what a showroom is for! We invite and welcome you to look around the factory at where your kitchen will be made and see for yourself that we really are 100% Australian owned and made.
