Make the Most of Houzz
When it comes to social media platforms, Houzz is more popular than ever. While homeowners are still using Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest for inspiration and planning purposes, we have found that Houzz is quickly becoming the social media platform of choice for home building and renovation. How can Houzz help you plan your next project? Let’s take a look!
Define Your Expectations
Once you have determined your project budget and your renovation and/or building timeline, you can start perusing the Stories & Advice section of Houzz’s Ideabooks page to connect with other homeowners. Learn from their mistakes, ask advice, and find many useful resources to help you take your project from concept to completion.
Create Your Own Ideabook
We love Houzz’s Ideabooks, which allow you to organize the images that inspire you. In addition to viewing photos and adding them to your Ideabook, you can shop departments, find professionals in your area, and sort by categories like budget, style, location, and size.
Creating an Ideabook will help you articulate your vision with the builders and designers on your project team—showing is always better than telling!
We love this step-by-step tutorial by Houzz on how to create and use Ideabooks.
Not only will Houzz connect you with companies and industry professionals who can help you complete your project, but Houzz is also a one-stop-shop for customer reviews, company information—including social media profiles—and examples of companies’ previous work. Do your due diligence, find design inspiration, and connect with your project team all in one place on Houzz.
