Here's the thing about online retailers: they are REALLY good at making their products look attractive online. Almost too good.
With the right lighting and a little bit of Photoshop, even a poor-quality product can look amazing. This is exactly what box stores count on from online shoppers. You can’t see the weak wood, the poor craftsmanship, or the lack of creative detail of the barn door. However, you will see it when it finally arrives on your doorstep, and you may be in for a letdown.
So, how do you get around that?
How do you make sure that something is as good as it appears to be online?
As the saying goes: “Seeing is believing.”
This is why we here at Walston Door Company in Kansas City invite our customers to tour our company showroom. It gives them a chance to fully immerse themselves in the world of custom barn doors and get familiar with our process. Here are some common FAQs that we regularly get from customers about our tours and how they work.
“Can I walk in, or do I need to make an appointment?”
An appointment is very strongly preferred, just so we know that we have a person freed up who can give you a tour. The showroom is open to the public but the workshop isn’t. For safety reasons, customers can't walk through our workshop unattended, so setting an appointment is the best way to go about this if you want to see it.
You can either give us a call at (816) 726-3841 or use the appointment booking section of our website. Plan on being here for at least half an hour so that we have enough time to show you everything.
“At what point do clients usually make an appointment to visit the showroom?”
Typically, our clients visit Walston Door Company anytime they are in need of a space saving solution to close off a room, but they need a little additional help. We help them determine the best size of door for the space along with a consultation on color and design.
Other times, people just like to see how our doors are made so that they can get familiar with our process. We have to admit, woodworking is pretty interesting to watch.
“What can I expect from my tour? What will I see?”
Tons of stuff! We have a lot of finished custom barn doors in our showroom and plenty more to see in our workshop. It’s a lot to take in.
You will get the chance to see our products firsthand, and sample the quality of the wood, hardware, and handles. You'll also get an opportunity to see the true colors of the products; they often look slightly different online.
