Finding Design Inspiration For Your Remodel: Houzz

May 23, 2012

Looking for some design inspiration for your remodel? A fantastic resource to utilize is Houzz. Although we’ve shared this fun remodeling site before, we thought it was good enough to be worth another mention. What exactly do we love about Houzz?

Whether you plan to begin your remodel in 5 months or 5 years, it’s never too early to start getting ideas. Although you can find design inspiration anywhere, Houzz is an easy site to visit regularly. You can browse through photos by space, style or metro area. Their articles are helpful collections infused with advice, like doorless showers, using recycled tile for backsplashes and creating luxurious looks on a budget.

One of our favorite features of Houzz is their ideabooks, and with nearly 2.5 million ideabooks on the site, we’re sure we’re not the only ones that love this feature! As you browse the site, if you find a photo that captures something you like, you can save it to an ideabook. That way, when it comes time to plan your remodel, you can pull up your ideabooks and show your design-build firm the types of features you want to include. You can create as many as you like, such as one for the kitchen, master bedroom, living room, entryway, etc.

Houzz recently added a few new features worth mentioning to their ideabooks, too:

  • You don’t have to be limited to the photos on the Houzz for design inspiration! Upload one from the computer or add one from another website.
  • If your partner wants to contribute their ideas, invite them as a collaborator so they can add their ideas to the book, too!
  • Share your ideabook with your friends – and your design-build firm!

Have you used Houzz at all yet? What are your favorite features of this site? Give us a call if you want help making your ideabooks a reality!
