We recently received this delightful email from Houzz, the leading platform for home renovation and design for people interested in home renovations. We’ve earned awards from Houzz since 2014, but there are still some people who don’t know what it is, so here’s a quick guide to give you the basics about Houzz, so you can use it for your home renovation in Victoria.
What is Houzz?
“When founders Adi and Alon remodeled their home, they started the way these projects often do: with a tall stack of magazines and referrals for home professionals from people they knew. But after those piles of torn out pages failed to make their dream a reality, they felt stuck. There had to be a better way.
So they built Houzz.”
Houzz is a comprehensive online platform for renovations, remodels, new construction, and additions, connecting homeowners with local professionals and providing good information about current styles, techniques, tools, and treatments. On the Houzz site you can find kitchen guides, bathroom guides, before & after shots, and so much more. It’ll lead you down a rabbit hole of awesomeness, and you’ll have a delightful breadcrumb trail of ideas to share with your designer to incorporate into your next project.
So, what can you do on Houzz?
Check the reviews of the contractor you’re considering to see what previous clients have had to say about their renovation. We’re grateful to have so many of our renovation clients share their experience – we have 54 reviews and a 5-star rating!
Explore the projects shared by the team you’re thinking about using for your next project. Does their style match yours? Do they showcase multiple styles to give a good range of options?
