I am very far from any sort of decorating genius so when I have to go and buy new things for my home I am always a little bit nervous and overwhelmed by my options. I know some people really like to have hundreds, if not thousands of different options to choose from when they are buying things but I am really not that kind of person. If I have three things that I can choose from then I cam good, if I have to choose between seventy to a hundred I usually just end up walking out of the store without every having made a decision.
One way that I have been able to combat this, at least in a very small way, is to avoid these big home stores that do not have anyone there to help the customers out, or even worse, these big department stores where they sell home equipment along with hundreds of other things. Instead I like to go to the smaller shops that specialize in one thing or another. With these shops there is usually a number of different people who work there who can help you figure out what exactly will work best for your home and what it is you are looking for. I am not trying to say that I totally give the responsibility or decision to these people but quite frankly I do enjoy handing off a lot of the responsibility to them at least.
When I recently went to Blinds Gallery to get some new blinds for my living room, I just took in a few pictures of the living room and the design specialists there were able to ask me a few questions about my lifestyle, how much light I want in the living room, how much privacy I want, things like that, then they took a look at all of the colors and patterns that I already have going in the living room and then they were able to pick out a few different kinds of window coverings that would work well for what I was needing as well as working well with the design and colors that I already had in the living room. It was perfect, I was presented with something like five or six options and I knew that no matter which one I chose there was no bad answer. Yes maybe one of the window coverings the woman at Blinds Gallery picked out would turn out to be better than the other options available but I knew that I would not go home with any one of them and regret my decision shortly after. Having her to help me removed a lot of the responsibility as well as the possibility for a bad decision on my part, which took out a lot of the stress of buying new things for the home. I was able to have only one meeting with the people at Blinds Gallery and I was able to walk out with window coverings that I can be happy with.
