Why Use Houzz & Pinterest for Design Inspiration

Idea sharing websites like Houzz.com and Pinterest.com are transforming the way we as builders and our designers communicate and collaborate with clients. Both sites are a searchable catalog of creative ideas and images. But unlike Pinterest, which has ideas for just about anything you can think of, Houzz is focused on home design and remodeling only.

There is no question that design is subjective so getting to know as much as possible about our client’s style and design preferences is a vital part of the custom home building process and the best way we can create a space that our clients will love. So whether you naturally have an eye for design or you’re more of the “I’ll know what I like when I see it” type of person these sites are the perfect tool to help you clearly communicate your vision with us.

The old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words still rings true today – only now, with the help of these sites, images can be neatly organized online within your personal Houzz Ideabooks and Pinterest Boards instead of a binder full of magazine cutouts, photographs and hand sketches.

So whatever stage you are at in your journey to a new or remodeled home give these sites a try. They will be an amazing resource for you and your builder/designer in making your visions become a reality.
