A recent study has found that women in the UK are regularly paying more for products that are a direct equivalent to men’s products. This is particularly true for cosmetics and personal care products, such as deodorants, razors and perfumes, but it also applies to services, including insurance, car repairs and hair cuts. Given that women are reportedly paid 10-20% less than men in the workplace, this is disappointing and irritating for us female folks. Some psychologists have actually suggested that many women like to pay more for their products and gain some kind of satisfaction for paying more.
At Doorsan we do not have different prices for men and women for our doors. I think that we have a fairly even split of male and female customers and we have noticed over the years that women are increasingly involved in the decision to buy doors. We certainly see more women in our door showroom than in previous years and we receive more phone calls and email enquiries from women.
We tend to find that our top quality doors are equally appealing to men and women and we do not see any need to promote them differently. We certainly wouldn't charge more to a woman for the same door, we try to be competitive while supplying good quality products. The Doorsan team includes men and women which helps us to see things from both sides and can be useful when selecting new timber door designs for our collection. We often work together to design and choose doors that will appeal universally to men and women. Whether you are a man or woman, we are sure that you will be impressed with our wide selection of internal and external doors and you can be assured that there will be no discrimination on prices.
