If you are a design enthusiast or amidst redecorating your home; this introduction to Houzz may be old news. But for those of you that haven’t heard the internet buzz, Houzz is an on-the-rise-platform dedicated to homes and improving spaces. Users can collect their favorite design ideas and decorating concepts via “ideabooks.” Though it might seem closely related to Pinterest, Houzz gives its users a community as they are enabled and encouraged to ask questions and seek advice from professionals and each other. Searching is simplified as you can search by style, location, and room.
The two founders of Houzz came up with the idea when they were struggling to communicate their vision for the 1950′s Bay Area house they were dreaming up renovations for. Words could not do justice to their ideas and collecting images was a burdening task. The online medium was developed to elevate such tasks while also connecting home-owners with interior designers, contractors, and architects.
Here are a few highlights from the SmartFurniture.com Houzz Profile ideabooks. Join Houzz – if you haven’t already – and let the designing begin.
