Norwich, Norfolk (PRWEB) September 10, 2008
Instead of simply showing, and selling great furnishings, wallpapers, lighting and accessories, this refreshingly different site enables its users to become the next Linda Barker or Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen on their next project.
Totally Home contains a number of innovative tools which allow the user to take control and plan their project like never before. A 'Project Check-list' guides you through the tasks every step of the way - from the moment you select a room to coordinating colours and furnishings.
Like every good interiors professional, the budding designer can start with a visual moodboard by making use of the Moodboard Creator. This enables the user to explore options and experiment with themes and styles to create a tasteful, harmonious room. Potential products can then be selected for comparison as the user moves towards their ideal scheme.
Once a route has been decided, totallyhome.co.uk even has a Colour Search facility which helps, not only decide on decor colourways, but automatically select the flooring, designer wallpaper and furnishings sold on the site - over 1,000 in all - simply by 'colour'.
The wonderful thing is, the user needn't be in any way experienced in design or interiors to make use of these really fun and interactive features on the totallyhome.co.uk site. They are designed to give everyone to opportunity to make the most of even the smallest home project Naturally, by showing you the coordinating products which fit with your chosen theme, there is a good chance you may be inspired to place an order, but there is absolutely no obligation to do so once you have used the tools.
The founder and owner of the site is keen to ensure the site's useful features will help totallyhome.co.uk stand out within what is a highly competitive on-line marketplace.
"These first steps at really engaging the customer have been very well received" he says. " We are trying to make the whole process of home decorating and furnishing an experience people can really enjoy. TV Shows have led the way in empowering the general public to become their own interior designers rather than simply decorators and we are simply taking this a stage further."
Talking of interior designers, the site also sells designer wallcoverings by, among others Linda Barker and Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen.
