Blinds Downunder

Shopify store for roller blinds business

Design and development of a Shopify online store with high-quality, custom-made blinds.

Client

An online blinds company with variable pricing options for people to select different fabrics, loaders, fixtures, and fittings for blinds. Users can watch  3D animated videos, measure their window frames, and install the blinds themselves, thus saving a lot of money.

Brief

Conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic imposed restrictions on the ways the client did business and communicated with customers. A Shopify store that reflects the customization options that customers have on-site helped them move their business online. The project turned out to be much more complicated than it seemed at the beginning. Advice from Xfive’s UX designer helped simplify it and make the blinds’ customization process easy for customers.

Results

Key achievements

  • To meet users’ expectations and requirements we created a blinds configurator. With its help, a customer can build their own blinds that match any size of windows.
  • Shopify search engine helped save hours of customization and additional actual web development time. Even customers who describe themselves as computer novices can navigate easily through the entire store.
  • With a large selection of fabrics and multiple choices of blinds components, including colors, the blinds configurator is a highly versatile tool. Clean and intuitive filters allow you to find the desired blinds quickly.

The site is user-friendly and guides customers to the cart. The client finds their product unique on the market and is happy with the results. 

We walked through every step of blinds configuration before building the actual website to provide the proper Information Architecture and user flow. 

The designer mapped out where things went, functionalities, colors, photo placements, dropdowns, and so on.

The development was actually the easy part because we’d built everything during the design stages.

Neither my business partner nor I have had a professional relationship that worked as well as ours with Xfive.
