D.L. Couch Wallcovering Source,
Manufacturer

04/22/2015

The D.L.Couch Product Visualizer adds an innovative, exciting way to plan your projects.

Key Benefits: D.L.Couch website's main draw​ ​is ​its product visualizer. FIRST, you hand-pick a room from seven choices: a bedroom, a waiting room, an auditorium, a hotel room, lounge/café seating area, an office/hospital hallway, and a living room. ​(DLC promises that more options will be added soon.​)​ NEXT, you choose the wallcovering and click which wall you’d like to design. After covering the wall, you move onto upholstery. In the hotel room, ​the site​ lets you upholster everything from the headboard, to each pillow on the loveseat. FINALLY, you select the flooring from your choice of plank, sheet, and tile. Once you’ve completed the four painless steps​,​ you can print, email, or share your design space with others. The Product Visualizer ​makes designing spaces fun​ and​ easy. The DLC website has a plethora of exciting features including a wallcovering materials calculator, a live chat option, and an easy to use search feature. DLC has perfected the search option to easily find the product you are looking for. You have the option of sorting your search by collection, newest, name, and DLC favorites. You can also select how many results you want per page and there is an advanced search option where you can specify the category, style, scale, color, collection, shade, and environmental attributes. Once you select the product you are interested in, the specs pull right up. Not what you were looking for? DLC provides similar patterns in the menu bar on the right.

Key Shortfalls: The method for selecting your wallcovering and upholstery can be confusing. A menu Bar at the top allows you to select the brand but then you must select the collection from the drop down menu. If you know what you’re looking for, you will have no problems finding the wall covering or upholstery you need. But if you are browsing or don’t know which collection the wallcovering is in or if it is a Source One Performance or a Source One Specialty, it could take a while. One solution could be adding a search option or the ability to view all. Also, depending on what type of room you have, your options for upholstering could be limited. With the bedroom, you are limited to upholstering only a chair. Lastly, although the product search is phenomenal, it lacks pricing. Furthermore, they lack an area to locate your local sales rep to provide this information.
