Interior Decoration Goes Online
There are many businesses in the world today that have gone online. Using the full power of the internet, these companies have taken their services directly to the people. Customers don’t even have to leave their homes to get the products they want, as all of this is now possible through the internet.
Constantly adding their names to the list of online businesses are services being started by entrepreneurs. These are people who recognize a problem and give a new solution for it. One of the newest, and more important, entrants into the list of entrepreneurs who have brought a new service to the online world is Lee Mayer. She is the creator of Havenly, a business that has taken the idea of interior decoration online.
Interior Decoration and People’s Impatience
One of the reasons behind the creation of Havenly is that people in today’s world need things quickly. There is a certain need for speed in everything they do, partly because they are so invested in the online world. Services like Amazon and eBay help them order just about anything using the internet, and have it sent to their doorstep within days.
This is what Havenly does; it buys the materials you need to decorate your home and then ships them to your house for you.
A Chat, A Concept, Some Drawings, and Done
The process by which Havenly has taken interior decoration online starts when a client decides to chat with a Havenly designer. After telling them about the kind of design you want, the designer will pull together some concepts and work them out with you, which will lead to some drawings. Once you approve those drawings, the company will use part of your money to buy all the finalized materials and send them to your doorstep.
A Mid-Range Solution
Mayer says that this service is for the people who are looking for a quick solution to their problems. People who don’t want to pay a lot of money to a conventional interior designer, but at the same time don’t want to decorate their home themselves due to lack of expertise, can find the perfect balance of quality and pricing in this service.
Havenly charges $185 for each room that is designed. Out of these, $50 are kept aside and are used to buy the materials necessary for the final idea to be turned into a reality for the client.
Not Everyone can be a Havenly Designer
In order to maintain quality, the company puts its employees through a five-week selection process. All the designers are trained professionals, and draw their first sketch only after they have cleared the selection process.
Lee Mayer has really opened up a new door when it comes to interior design by taking it online. That is the reason why the humble $50,000 she started this company with, in 2012, has been converted into more than $1.5 million today. While most of her clients come from the cities of Chicago and Washington D.C., we have no doubt that her company, with which home decoration has gone online, has the potential to be nothing short of great.
