Houzz for Homeowners

Introducing Houzz! It’s a fun, informational, collaborative website for all your home decorating and designing needs. This website has information from landscaping ideas to budget tips to listings of home improvement professionals in your area.

The idea behind Houzz is to provide a way for homeowners and home improvement professionals to communicate with each other and individuals on design or remodeling projects. The biggest appeal to Houzz is the Ideabook. You can add pictures and ideas for your remodeling project and include your designer and contractor, even friends and family, to gather input and make notes, essentially building your own virtual “idea book” of what you’d like your new creation to be. This makes it easier to illustrate what you’re thinking of and it’s all contained in one safe, convenient place. If you’re tech savvy, you can even download the app and take your Ideabook with you wherever you go, so if you run into something you like, you can immediately enter in your idea so you don’t forget it. Additionally, the website lets you browse through multitudes of photos that other homeowners have added, ask the Houzz community for advice, or see what projects professionals in your area have completed.

The Houzz website is ideal whether you are remodeling or just looking for innovative, creative ideas to spruce up your home. And since we all know how crazy and busy everyone is, it is the perfect tool to help maximize everyone’s time. As one happy homeowner testifies, “The time flies while flipping through Houzz! We’re building a new home and Houzz is making decisions and communication with everyone so much easier when I have a great picture to show.” Check out the Houzz website to see if your contractor, designer, or landscaper is listed. If they’re not, they may want to be after you both take a look!
