Build a HOUZZBy Melissa Evans
If you’re in the planning stages of a remodel or thinking about building a new home chances are you’ve been gathering inspiration from anywhere you can find it. If you have piles of magazine clippings and a collection of Pintrest boards but need help making everything a reality then you should check out Houzz.
Houzz is an online architecture, design, landscape, and home improvement community filled with more than 20 million homeowners and professionals. Houzz creators Adi Tatarko and Alon Cohen experienced firsthand the need for a helpful home project themed community during their own home remodeling, referrals from friends and magazine clipping only go them so far, they wanted an easier way to collect their ideas and connect with professionals.
Houzz allows you to create Ideabooks from photos of projects that homeowners and professionals have uploaded. You can also read about the latest news in home projects, seek advice from other homeowners, and find professionals to help make your ideabooks real. Houzz has a mobile app which makes it convenient for you to bring your ideas to consultations and showrooms. When the work is done you can upload pictures of the project and help inspire others.
Marvin and Integrity both have Houzz accounts, follow us to add all your favorite windows and doors to your ideabooks.
