Houzz about this for a fantastic property design resource?

If like us at Lovett Sales and Lettings you have an obsession for all things property – then chances are you’re interested in home and design – perhaps your also planning some work on your house? If so, you need to check out the website / app called Houzz. Never heard of it? Well, you really should get on board – it’s superb. 

If you’ve not had a look at Houzz yet then hopefully this might encourage to jump in and have a play.  If you’re planning a new-build or renovation it’s a fabulous source of inspiration and a useful tool.

What is Houzz?

Houzz is a free online resource for all things property design; a website, photo library and community.  It’s a highly visual source of inspiration and information for people looking to build or renovate their homes.  You can use it as a source of ideas, as a tool to find design professionals, as an online mood board creator.  

Arriving in the UK in 2014, Houzz now has 2 million users on these shores, and 40 million worldwide. Built around high quality photos of projects from across the globe, there’s a huge library you can browse through – all indexed properly, be it lounge, kitchens, chairs etc. 

Houzz also works fantastically on your mobile or tablet, with an extremely easy to use interface. 

 

 Ideabooks

A bit like online pinboard Pinterest, Ideabooks acts as a library for your to allow you to collate and categorise all your images and inspirations, add notes and share them. The best way is to just dive in and have a good old nose around. Beware, it is addictive! 

Product Research

On many images you’ll see little green tags appear – if you click on these, it will bring up details on the product e.g. where to buy it, price, similar items etc. This can be locally, regionally or worldwide too!

 

Find Local Professionals

One of our favourite things about Houzz is the ability to search for local professionals in your area, from architects and designers, to builders and tradesmen. Many will also have examples of their work and projects they have been involved in too.

Community

Houzz has one final amazing resource at its disposal – you, the user! The ‘advice’ message boards are a goldmine of information from people asking all kinds of questions about property and design and build. There’s also the option to join in with live chat discussions on certain subjects!

 

Hopefully that’s a useful introduction to the basics of Houzz.  There are many other ways of researching, gathering and sharing inspiration like Pinterest, but Houzz is dedicated to homeowners looking to build or renovate their houses.  It’s free, so if you’re working on a project or thinking of starting one, why not dive in and see if it’s useful for you.

"Fabulous company, great team! Always so helpful, I would not hesitate to recommend."
