Houzz at a glance

Have you been sucked into the Houzz vortex and re-emerged hours later, thinking, “what the heck, where did the time go?” I like Houzz because as a homeowner you get a firsthand look at the work of your local design community; from designers, architects, remodelers, homebuilders, landscapers, and homeowners.

It’s also a great tool for auditioning “the trade” when you’re looking for a professional; you can get a feel for the type of work they do. Do they have the same design aesthetic as you?

And as a Hirshfield’s employee, seeing the Hirshfield’s paint colors, wallpaper, and design studio products used in actual residences, is of interest to me. Houzz has it going on!

Houzz offers over 500,000 photos and 1.8 million “ideabooks” that users have created, the options for interaction are endless on Houzz. See for yourself all the features that Houzz has to offer.

For a little background on Houzz, here’s a link to an article The New York Times did on the house that inspired Houzz.
