6 Ways You Can Use Houzz For Your Home Décor Project

Today designing (or redesigning) the home of your dreams can be done in the palm of your hand, right from your Smartphone or tablet.   Today, it seems you can’t even bring up home décor today without mentioning Houzz.com. And it makes sense since Houzz has become a powerhouse of the home décor industry.   This platform offers up so many services to homeowners who are setting out to either build a new home, remodeling an existing home or just looking for fresh products to update a room.

Here are six ways to use the platform as you embark on your project:

  1. Create a free profile.

This can be done easily through email or with your existing Facebook log in.  The latter is a popular option because it means you don’t have to remember yet another log in or password.

  1. Subscribe to their Stories (newsletter)

Their newsletter has so many amazing stories and ideas.  You will get access to amazing photography and inspiring homes from their HOUZZ Home Tours.

  1. Start Browsing photos.

Now make sure you have time for this step because once you dive in, who knows how long you’ll be here. You will find homes of all shapes and sizes and in all parts of the world.

  1. Build your dream boards.

One of the great things about Houzz is the ability to find your favorite photos and organize them in folders to easily access in the future and share with others.  Homeowners would find this so helpful when working with a builder or designer to share their ideas.

  1. Connect with a professional

There are many websites out there that offer to help you find a professional, some of these require you to pay for this search service.  Houzz currently offers it for free.  When you find a professional you can contact them right from Houzz, see their work, get reviews and more.  Despite the prevalence on online resource for planning your home design or décor, don’t underestimate the value of an experienced Interior Designer, Builder or Architect (you can even find high-quality flooring suppliers like Smart Floor Store on the platform).

  1. Start shopping.

Perhaps one of the best things about Houzz, and the way in which it varies from other platforms.  Many other platforms that allow you to save photos and share them, but they don’t really give you the option to FIND that product and actually buy it.  This can be very frustrating.  is in many cases if you see something you like, you can buy it right on Houzz.


With so many resources available today it can be overwhelming finding the right products for your home, but Houzz has gone to great lengths to provide a comprehensive, affordable, functional and inspiration platform to give you everything you need.  Happy decorating!
