We were asked to create a new product website for Matki, makers of the finest shower enclosures, wet rooms, shower trays, bath screens and brassware products on the market. This website is a perfect demonstration of the kinds of features that can be achieved as part of a bespoke web project.
A products section with smart, animated filtering
Each product category page has a fixed-position sidebar designed to assist the visitor in finding the right product for them, based on various product attributes that are specific to each product category. For shower enclosures, for example, the visitor can filter products by Space, Door Type, Collection and Width.
Full screen embedded videos
The client has invested in beautiful videos to tell the brand and product stories, which the website showcases seamlessly; filling the width of the browser window with the embedded videos and playing in-situ.
Find a stockist… who actually has the product you’re looking at on display
This clever feature lives within each product detail page, and helps the visitor locate the nearest stockist who has that particular model on display. It is also possible to view all dealers stockists based on location.
Browse by product category or by collection
Some customers will know they want a new shower enclosure whereas others will want to view all products across an entire collection, particularly useful for Matki’s corporate customers such as hotels. The website offers two ways in to browsing products; one via product category and the other by collection. It is then possible to filter by collection or category, depending on which route was chosen.
Custom product configurator
Customers can generate their own product configuration using the website, without having to speak to any stockists or customer service department. This provides convenience to both the customer and the client. Within the product detail pages are a series of product configuration options, allowing the customer make their own selection at their leisure – and have the website automatically generate the price of their configuration instantly. This configuration and pricing information can then be printed directly from the website, thanks to a helpful ‘Print Configuration’ button and a corresponding print-friendly pop up window.
