Many trendy homeowners are aware that Houzz is an excellent resource for finding the latest styles in interior design, décor, home improvement, landscaping, and more. But for those of you who are unfamiliar with the innovative platform, we’re here to share a few tips on how to get started and better navigate Houzz to find your new inspiration for your next home improvement project. Check out these 4 ways to make the most out of using Houzz from Vanessa Brunner, Houzz staff editorial writer.
- Find Exactly What You’re Looking For
Whether you’re just browsing for kitchen inspiration or looking for a particular style countertop, you can find what you’re looking for by utilizing the Houzz search bar. Try combining keywords by separating them with a “+” symbol. You can even use the left-hand column to refine your search by room type, style, or your location.
- Resource related guides and idea books
At the top of each idea book are green links that can take you to related articles, guides, or other idea books. All are curated and written by expert homeowners, decorators, writers, contractors, and more, so you can have access to expert opinion and style with just a simple click.
- Create your own idea books
You can create your own personal scrapbook of ideas right on the Houzz website. Simply upload or add photos of whatever inspires you—it can be something you’ve found online, snapped a picture of in person, or found while browsing the Houzz site.
- Interact with the Houzz community
You never know where your next big home improvement project could come from—it may be an expertly-written article or particularly stunning photo, but it could even be a simple comment from a fellow Houzz user. Get involved in the Houzz conversation by commenting on fellow Houzzers’ photos or by posting a question about a particular dilemma.
