If you can recall from the post announcing the
Well, we’re at it again, and today we’re launching a super exciting (at least to us and hopefully to you, too)
Before diving into some screengrabs to walk you through how to use the new section and what you’ll find there, I just want to say that the angle here wasn’t to push more product to you (i.e. making money on my end). YES, some of the links you’ll find throughout are affiliate links, because this is a business after all, but, for me, this truly was about creating a better resource for you and for us (in fact, there are a TON of products that we will make $0 from, but servicing you guys was more important). For instance, if you’re on the hunt for a new sectional sofa and are tired of doing search after search on Google for options only to feel like you’re in a hamster wheel of the same finds, that’s where we come in. We are, of course, going to continue to do our roundups and combos and other shopping blog posts, but if you want to get straight to the meat and see all the picks we think are rad in any given category, come here first. There’s something for everyone—from a ton of budget faves to higher-end investment pieces. Target to Thos. Moser.
Okay, so now that that’s clear, let’s dig in:
Similar to the landing page for Rooms, you’ll be greeted with 12 different categories to pick from (if you are just window shopping and don’t have anything specific in mind, you can just pop into “New Favorites,” which, right now, is basically EVERYTHING, because everything is a new favorite).
Don’t worry, you won’t have to come back here everytime you want to switch categories. If you’re five pages deep into bed and bath and all of a sudden got an inch to find a new dining table, you can just use the top navigation you’ll get once you “enter” the shop (like below).
Each category has a drop down to drill into more specifics. We basically modeled this off of what already feels natural for shopping online. It’s pretty intuitive. We’re not reinventing the wheel here.
On the top right, you can sort by newest additions and price (high or low), and above that is a search field in case you have something specific in mind. You can type a product type in here (like “ottoman”) or a brand name (like “Rejuvenation”) and anything that matches within that category will pop up. Super simple and helpful. On the top left, you get the chance to filter by price (it’s kind of hidden in the above screen grab but you’ll easily see it). If an extra $50 is burning a hole in your pocket, just set the max budget to 50 and hit “Go”…and so on and so forth. Again, not rocket science over here, but thought it would be good to walk you through so you can use it effectively and efficiently from the get-go.
So there you have it. Again, this will constantly be evolving and changing with new products and favorites. We are even in the works for a version 2.0 with some fun additions to mark what products have been used in what reveals (and you can click over to see how we used it in a space), but we had ants in our undie pants to get this out to you NOW and didn’t want to wait.
Okay…ready for some retail therapy? Head on over to the new
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE…
