I am not a developer. I don’t create websites for other people. I am only creating a site to help me communicate with customers for my cabinet shop.
I use this site for a lot of purposes.
The primary goal is to get customers to want to hire me.
The secondary goal is to train these customers so that they become better customers.
In the kitchen design business you spend a lot of time just getting people to trust. By the time they figure out you are their best friend the job is almost over with and you have to start it all over again. It’s a lousy business like this.
(To all you developers out there who think rubes like me are a tough customer…you should meet mine.)
The best technique for navigation that I have found so far is to select a kitchen from the grid then scroll vertically. This seems to work well with a desktop display, iPad and iPhone6.
Kitchen 13 - Picture 5 is really easy to find.
My test site is: RealDealKitchens.Com.
I show four versions of KITCHEN 5.
If you select this from the grid you find your information by scrolling.
I also show these images using a PhotoGallery Stack by Nick Cates and Two versions of a similar PhotoGallery by Foundry.
I don’t know much about Gallery Stacks. Are there any logistical advantages to using galleries over simple scrolling? Does it load faster or are there any other benefits to swiping vs scrolling?
Which method would be quicker to get Kitchen 5- Picture 4 in front of you?
