As creative souls, we love the opportunity to sit down with our customers and give input on design ideas of your various projects. Whether it is a home renovation using salvaged materials, a specific custom creation, such as a table or door, the use of salvaged materials in restaurant decor or stage design, we enjoy being involved in the design process. While we would love to be able to sit down and spend one-on-one time with every customer, during our regular business hours, it is just not always possible. However, while Southern Accents showroom is closed to the public on Sundays and Mondays, we are available on Mondays for this creative process by appointment!
If you’ve ever lived in a small town, you already know regular business hours are typically a little “different!” For Cullman, Alabama, that means that most businesses downtown, even a lot of the local restaurants, are closed on Mondays. Since most of the downtown businesses open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday are needed to allow owners and employees an opportunity to rest so that we can continue to work hard throughout the week. Most weeks, however, we will have a few out-of-town customers not familiar with this small town practice, travel to Cullman, only to be disappointed that we are closed. Even though our showroom is closed on Mondays, you can call ahead and book an appointment for a one-on-one consultation with Southern Accents owner, Garlan Gudger or sales team member Ben Sellers. Those seeking an appointment are asked to call at least one to two weeks in advance to inquire on appointment availability. Making a Monday appointment allows us the opportunity to focus our full attention on your project without the distractions of the day to day business during the rest of the week.
Once you’ve booked an appointment we encourage you to come prepared! Some of the things you will want to bring with you for your appointment include blueprints, exact measurements, sketches, and design ideas. If you have pictures of what you want your project to look like, print them off or have them organized on a Pinterest board that we can look at. If your project involves using salvaged materials for home, office or restaurant decor or possibly a stage design, have a sketch and measurements of the room or stage layout. The better prepared you are, the more progress we can make during your appointment.
During your appointment, you will be able to sit down with Garlan or Ben and discuss your project. If you are ready to look at materials, you will be able browse our selection of architectural antiques and salvaged goods in our showroom as well as our warehouses. If you are ready to make a purchase, you will also have the opportunity to purchase materials that day so come prepared to haul your wares home!
Ready for some one-on-one time? Call our showroom at 877 737-0554 during our regular business hours of Tuesday – Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturday 10am to 4pm. Makenzie will take your request and contact information and then get back with you to schedule your appointment! We look forward to working with you on your next project!
