  • Houzz is my design idea source Dec 26, 2020

    By Garouj
    When I moved from CA to MI, I wanted to get some ideas for updating and decorating my new home, including adding a covered/maybe-screened porch and converting a bonus room into a dorm for the grandchildren. Houzz is my source. I have been getting magazines and tearing out ideas for 45 years. The file box was full, and every year or so I have to edit out ideas which no longer appeal to me. When I discovered Houzz a year ago, I got rid of that old box of ideas because I could replace it with my own design folders on my iPad, and editing became finger easy. I also let all my magazine subscriptions lapse. (Magazines now have more advertising than content, and I can use the money I save on items for my home instead.) I can focus an idea search by space, style, inside or outside, even color! When I work with contractors I can show them what I want. I can take my collected ideas with me when I shop. I have referred others to Houzz. Even my son-in-law gets ideas for his own projects from Houzz. My grand-daughter picked some ideas for her bedroom. Helpful fun! Now years later, I still check out new ideas on Houzz regularly.

  • AMAZING APP!! Oct 1, 2020

    By bgyhhstbd
    I love this app because I am buying a new house and I can decorate it however I want with Houzz. The products are a bit pricey but still the hold together well, they are well designed, and most of all the work, they just work with everything! You can also do a 2D camera thing where you can place your items in the room of your choice and the products of your choice! There is everything you can ask for! Like you can search “black white and gray area rug” or just plain and simple “ area rugs” it will pull up all options, you can also look up pro designers and you can look at pictures from other people to get inspiration and you can also post pictures and a little story for it. You can also have a private account or a worldwide account. The app it self is completely 100% FREE, which is what everyone wants, AM I RIGHT OR WHAT? THIS APP IS AMAZING! Please consider getting this amazing app and looking into some of these amazing products! Love you all of my brothers and sisters in Christ!! God bless you!

  • Couldn’t do it without you! Jan 20, 2020

    By SRLwee
    I have built many a house in the past thirty years. My how technology has changed and for the better too! I am building and designing a house with an architectural firm and construction company. Houzz has become invaluable! From my original designs saved in an “idea book” to answering questions, sourcing products, pricing and conversation staters! I bring my iPad open to Houzz to every design meeting since the project started a year ago. It is wonderful to be able to look up a design element, faucet, room configuration and have all that information available. Having Houzz has also helped with ambiguity since photos make understanding elements clear and easy. Here’s to Houzz and for making the project so much easier and fun!

    We placed an order on May 17 and got a confirmation that it would be shipped by May 22 and delivered by May 30. We ordered from Houzz vs another vendor because we could get the merchandise so soon. There was no indication on website or in our confirmation that there may be COVID-19 related delays like some companies have posted on their sites. Our delivery date passed and on May 24 I emailed Houzz asking for a status. Auto response said a response may be delayed 4-5 days due to COVID-19. I tried calling and was on hold forever and hung up. 5 days passed and no return email so I emailed again on May 30, the day we were supposed to receive our order. I asked for an order cancellation. It is now June 4 and I’ve still not received an email response but noticed my credit card got billed. I didn’t receive an email notification saying my order had been shipped, though I was promised one in my order confirmation email. I logged into Houzz and sure enough my order finally updated to “shipped.” We tried calling and using chat function and those are no longer being manned. We requested an order cancellation again, this time on the website because that was now a selection on the page. Order says it will be here by 6/11, well past the date when we needed it and it was delivered after we asked for cancellation. It doesn’t appear they are manning email either. I will not be shopping with Houzz again.

    I have really liked this app and its content. I used it casually for reading, not for posting. Recently though it's started popping up frequent splash screens nagging you to create an account. I'm not sure if this change is an accidental bug or a deliberate antifeature, but it's awful.

  • Not for custom furniture builders Sep 25, 2019

    By rjhammy
    As a pro I spent $1200, I have 11 five star reviews, I’ve been in my field for 14 years and I received zero referrals from houzz. As a custom furniture builder houzz was a complete waste of money. I talked to other professionals in my area and they all agreed. None of them received referrals from houzz even though houzz assured me that they had. I’m sure it works for someone, but if you’re a craftsman don’t spend your money on this platform. I cannot recommend this to anyone unless you’re a consumer organizing and getting ideas. Also, contacting customer support trying to cancel my account I kept getting ghosted. They ignored my calls and emails. Winston was extremely unhelpful. I finally had to call my bank and explain how they were not living up to their side of the contract. Ended up getting some money back because others had this same experience. They finally contacted me and tried to send me to their collections 😂😂😂😂 once I explained the situation they left me alone. Horrible experience all around for an app I was really excited about.

  • WORST COMPANY, DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THEM Nov 19, 2019

    By AwesomeArchitect
    I have not received a single lead since the beginning of the service (in nearly 5 months), as opposed to what HOUZZ promised that there will be many “lead projects” they will send me every week. HOUZZ is absolutely the worst company, a total fraud company with very very poor customer service and all their representatives are liars and only good until signing up for the service the very first day. I did not even heard back from them the second day I paid $1188 to this company for their yearly membership that they called me strategically and tricked me to sign up for, until I had to reach out to them again myself a month later. This shows how terrible your company really is. I will make sure to inform all architects and other people in the building industry that I know to not sign up for any services with you, and I know a lot of them. I will share my horrible experience on all media platforms. With no regard or respect for a BS company and people like you. Remember that there is no difference between a thief stealing $1188 from me and you.

  • Posting New Questions Oct 2, 2020

    By hogsareback
    The number one thing you can do to improve the user experience, especially new users, would be to make it easier to post a new question. I see this over and over in comments on your site and other search engines. This also goes for folks like me who do a lot of browsing but don’t post that often. I love HOUZZ and refer it often to my friends. Remodeled the entire interior of my house and thanks to your site, it’s beautiful. Now working on the exterior. The advice I’ve received has been invaluable. Kept me from making some major mistakes with my roof and exterior paint choices. In turn, my stress level is way down. For that, my husband thanks you too. I hope you take this feedback and move “Post new question on your home page”. Can you tell I worked for a top ten e-commerce site? Lol just trying to help.

  • Creativity Within Is Renewed and Inspires New Ideas Here Feb 4, 2021

    By melanie rocks!
    Whenever I need new ideas, inspiration, new trends, color choices, I find a lot of education and thoughtful problem solving dilemmas with Houzzs content. Beautiful pictures of before and afters of of projects are fascinating! Houzz keeps improving their site all of the time. They know how to spot and discuss new trends with leading expect across the board. A “must” for those that can afford and/or appreciate superb taste. They have it covered with items for your house, apartment, and tree fort! Sales are great! 4 stars because non sale items can be very expensive making it difficult for so many of us today that have to really watch what we spend.

  • Excellent inspiration needs better product tags Sep 20, 2020

    By California DIYer
    Houzz is an excellent platform for finding inspiration for every room of your house. When looking to make updates or design choices I always go to Houzz first to get ideas on the latest trends. My only criticism is when I find an inspiration picture, frequently the items in the pictures are not tagged and you have to email the designer to find the product details. It’s unlikely that the designer will respond. Wish all items in the pictures were tagged or alternatives were offered. Still love the app!!

  • Please Get Rid of the Auto “Scroll to Top” Jan 14, 2020

    By randallb18
    I love this app and have purchased a few items which are wonderful products, but with the latest update some genius thought it would be a good idea when shopping for items that when you tap or swipe back to the product list that it should automatically scroll all the way back to the top of the list. It’s infuriating and moronic UX design, especially when users can’t turn it off. Forced navigation is never a good idea. Please get rid of it and instead have a back to top link.

  • Very Useful! Oct 2, 2020

    By bdymond1
    I really like this app in that it connects users with professionals and a crazy amount of design ideas. I’ve found several software bugs though and ones that have caused a bit of irritation. They include: (1) sluggish and unreliable image upload from iPhone and a completely disappearing text input field on iPad (including the photos not uploading whatsoever) - this all happens in the messaging screen when communicating with contractors, (2) repeated scrolling to the bottom of the ‘Contact Me’ screen while typing - this happens in split-screen mode on iPad, and (3) inability to bring up the login screen on iPhone after logging out - I inadvertently made two Houzz accounts (1 attached to Google and 1 attached to Apple) and when I logout of the my Houzz account that’s tied to my Apple account on iPhone, no login screen will come up to log in to another account. No matter how many times I tap login, nothing comes up —> this bug (#3) only happens on my iPhone. The login screen comes up every time on iPad after signing out.

  • Sublime and Sub-par 🤷🏼‍♀️ Aug 1, 2020

    By Retired and Redecorating
    I have ordered and received several items from Houzz, and have been VERY pleased with the quality: even thrilled. However, I have received a couple of pillows from different manufacturers that looked as though they were not new. Pillows with spots and wrinkles, and tags that are crumpled: they appear to have been used. One child’s pillow has a crease down the front cover, the maker had simply not bothered to press the fabric before assemblage. I am waiting on several more items: hoping for better manufacturer consistency, but I find I may need to return 25% of what I have received thus far.

  • Lots to like here Nov 9, 2017

    By RPS90483
    This app has grown its offerings nicely over time. I really like their TV episodes. Also liking their built-in shopping. I’d like to see search remember where I last left off in a list of thumbnail search results. Right now it seems to revert to the top of a list of thumbnails after drilling into a photo which is disorienting and fatiguing after a while. I’d also like to see more variety in ideas for the photos. When I search for modern style, for example, countless results look so similar. Houzz should be pushing to surface unique results that feel fresh and not stale.

  • Privacy’s back👍🏼 More “average” homes please! Mar 7, 2018

    By mmbrownie
    I like seeing all the styles & choices, but I would really like to see more “average” people homes. There are many homes worth millions that pop up in a search such as “tiny kitchen.” Some tiny kitchens show up, but most probably cost what my whole house is worth. Please consider the non-rich people who have to do it all themselves (& enjoy it!) & don’t have designers & architects at their beck & call. I have nothing against architects or designers! Hooray for what they do;-) I will just never be able to hire either & would like choices geared to my kind.

  • Needs work Dec 30, 2017

    By Marin Princess
    As a professional designer, I use this app on my computer of the time. However, using it on the iPad is somewhat challenging. When you try to make a comment, the typing is not always accurate and you can’t go back, and to make it worse, then you can’t even post it! Additionally, you can’t delete individual pictures from boards; you can only delete the entire board. Perhaps this function exists, but I haven’t been able to find it. I hope the developers read these reviews and learn from them.

  • WARNING ! My info was leaked ! Jun 6, 2020

    By ManBearPotato13
    I’m not trying to talk bad about the app itself, considering it’s a solid tool. I only had the chance to use it for a week or so before it started acting up. I deleted it and forgot about it. Few months later I receive numerous reports from my credit monitoring service about my email being leaked out and possibly in the dark web. I would usually disregard this type of thing, but THREE Other identity services came up with the same result and specifically noted Houzz as origin of info leaked. I never once received a letter or notification from the developers about this. On top of all that , all my attempts to contact customer service about the issue were disregarded. I can’t make this stuff up, and am sorry it had to come to a negative review for it to ( possibly )be acknowledged. The app is GOOD I repeat it’s a GOOD APP with solid features; and I’m sure the developers had no ill intentions ; but I am mainly unhappy with the lack of support and or info on a EXTREMELY SERIOUS MATTER my IDENITY.
