Dream Doors launches new kitchen design tool to allow customers to plan their perfect kitchen
Kitchen makeover firm Dream Doors has launched a new a new online 'visualiser', a kitchen design tool that allows consumers to plan their perfect kitchen, from door style and colour to different wall colours and flooring.
Created after consultation with Dream Doors' kitchen designers and feedback from customers who had requested a digital aid to help think about what might work in a kitchen, the Dream Doors visualiser aims to help both consumers and franchisees.
"It can sometimes be hard for people to get a feel for how different colours and styles will go together in their kitchen, so we have created the visualiser to make doing so much easier," says Troy Tappenden, managing director, Dream Doors. "Choosing a new kitchen is not always straightforward, as there is so much choice nowadays and not everyone has a good eye or feel for what might look good. By allowing consumers to try different colours and styles for a kitchen at their own pace, seeing what works and what doesn't, lets them be more certain about what they want and gives franchisees valuable feedback into a customer's requirements."
After using the online visualiser, consumers can save and send their selected kitchen to a participating Dream Doors showroom. They will then receive a free consultation with a kitchen designer and a no obligation to buy price estimate.
While kitchen prices vary depending on a number of factors, Dream Doors' model of transforming kitchens by replacing doors, draw fronts and work surfaces is proving increasingly popular with consumers. A typical Dream Doors kitchen makeover can be completed in around 48 hours and for less than half the cost of an average full re-fit, meaning significantly less disruption to home life.
In addition to its kitchen makeover service, Dream Doors will also design and fit an entire new kitchen, as well as offering a host of white goods and appliances. Every single one of its replacement doors is made-to-measure and of the highest quality, meaning even the oldest and unusual kitchens can be updated.
"We are always looking for the best tools to make our franchisees' lives easier and to improve the overall Dream Doors experience for our customers," continues Troy. "The visualiser is already proving popular with consumers and it helps with franchisees too, as it gives them a much clearer idea of what customers want, and how much it will cost.
