    Interior design is all about visualizing every element that will be put in your space, but it can cost a lot more than $1000 to bring it to your home just to see how it looks. Houzz has all the tools you need to see what your room will look like before you drop $2,000 on that new sofa.

    That gorgeous picture at the gallery could look absolutely awful set against your wallpaper. Check before you spend $500 on a painting. Create a virtual preview and make an informed decision. If the artwork fits your style, you can even use this app to find a framer in your area.

    It can take 2 days to find a piece of furniture that you think will look perfect in your living room, and then it doesn't look quite right when it shows up. Houzz lets you shop unique furniture and using your phone's camera to show you how it will look in your house.

    You might find it hard to picture what colors you want in the living room and kitchen or if the new built-in entertainment system should be 6 or 8 feet high. Here you can design and remodel to make decisions before buying materials.

    When updating the flooring in your home, one of biggest struggles is determining how many tile squares you need. You don't want to end up being 1 or 2 squares short. This app has many great features for home renovation projects, including a virtual tile calculator so you will know exactly how many squares you need to complete your project.

  • 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!

    I love the Houzz app for home ideas and decorating tips. I've remodeled my bathrooms, our deck and my office using Houzz's huge photo gallery for ideas. Each picture includes designer details and pricing for many items. I could go on... Bottom line, Houzz is a great application for homeowners, designers, DYIers, etc..
  • Fun to look through, but... Mar 27, 2021

    By Somuchtimespent
    I enjoy looking through Houzz to get ideas from the photos or solutions to problems on the different forums, however... 1) The search function is average at best. If you search for something like “basement laundry” you’ll see photos of that plus lots of unrelated pics. It seems the more specific your search, the more “off” the results are. 2) Lately and with increasing frequency, the attached information under “learn more” is for a different property, and probably one you looked at previously. Its like the previously viewed information won’t clear out. 3) Considering there are supposedly millions of photos posted, I keep seeing the same ones over and over. 4) I don’t know that I would ever dare to post a question on a board, as the people answering (pros and lay people alike) can be particularly snarky or unnecessarily harsh. A woman asked about thoughts on paint color for her kitchen, and was told by respondents that she had too much stuff on her counters, her word signs were awful, and her back splash didn’t properly coordinate with her counters. And it kept going even after she very graciously included a little background information about some of her design choices. It was a very nice kitchen by anyone’s standards, but the people replying (which included pros) were just rude. There seems to be no monitoring of the site at all.

  • Indispensable Inspiration May 2, 2021

    By Tornado Allie
    Houzz has been my go-to place for ideas this year. We are building a new home, and I could not have gotten by without inspiration and ideas from Houzz! Houzz makes it incredibly easy to save examples of decor, appliances, hardware, furniture, tile, fixtures and share them with my own architect and decorator. I can save all of these elements in one spot for easy reference ( we do not live currently in the state in which we are building) and then zoom meetings are a breeze. Houzz shows me the latest trend, prices, and lets me search broadly or in narrow categories. It is my favorite tool for planning a new space or just taking in moments of beauty when I need a break. There is always something to look forward to here on this amazingly user-friendly site.

  • Shipping from Houzz May 23, 2021

    By Kelorah9
    This is the worst company we have ever seen. We ordered two bedside lamps over a month ago and they still have not arrived. After three weeks of waiting, we inquired as to the delay. There were three flimsy excuses. First they said that they didn’t accept phone calls and would only have agent chat. This took 25 minutes to connect. Then the connection was lost. We connected once again and the first excuse was that they were sorry but the package got lost in transit and would be reshipped. Then after another week we got an email that said the package was damaged in transit and would be resent. Five days later the email was changed to say that due to COVID it was still sitting in the warehouse but they were pretty sure we should get it within 5 days. It showed the tracking progress and the warehouse is an hour and a half from our house. Can you tell me why it is taking 5 days for a package to travel 1 1/2 hours (60 miles)? This STINKS. The corporate office is in Palo Alto and I’m in Irvine, CA. I could have driven in one day. This is the MOST RIDICULOUS CARELESS COMPANY I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW THEY STAY IN BUSINESS.
  • 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.

    "Please note that for our legal records, we will keep a record of your deletion request and may also continue to store, in accordance with applicable laws, a limited amount of your information to comply with our legal obligations" This is the paraphrased email I received when trying to delete my account. They make you go the extra mile to delete your account but hold on to info. This makes me uncomfortable.

    to have to cancel membership is such a hassle why cant u just have a cancel membership in settings and be done with it . why have to go through all the customer services and waiting on phone for almost 1 hr for them to hang up on you. then get a call back and have them transfer u to many other representatives who dont seem to know who can cancel for u. so very upset . 😡
  • Houzz stole $2000 from us. Sep 28, 2020

    By Red Lodge Construction Company
    My husband signed up for an account for our new business and was contacted by Houzz with an offer for them to build a business website for us and manage our Houzz account. He accepted the offer, paid $2000!!!, had phone meetings with Houzz, sent job pictures... and then silence. Website has not been built, our Houzz profile links a website to a competing contractor in our city and when asked to remove it no one has done anything, our emails are not being answered, phone messages not being replied to. No one is answering us and we paid money for services that not being fulfilled. I questioned this on the Houzz Facebook and got blocked from commenting. This company seems like a legitimate scam and I hope no one falls for it like we did. Definitely too good to be true. (If anyone from Houzz would like to make this situation correct then please contact your customer, Red Lodge Construction Company and refund the money for the services you were unable to perform.)
  • 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.

  • Great app, but updates have issues Nov 19, 2017

    By intensifi
    I’ve relied heavily on this app for inspiration for our remodel. However, recently the app has started behaving badly. When searching for a feature (say wainscoting), then trying to filter for the room, style, etc., the app forgets about the feature I’m searching for. It just shows all the rooms that meet the filter criteria. Also, when reviewing photos in search results, if I select to learn more about a photo, then close the photo details when I’m done, the app returns to the top of the search results, rather than the last photo viewed. If The search results have a few hundred photos, it’s extremely time consuming to try to figure out where I was. These bugs make the app significantly less useful. I’m starting to look for a replacement.
  • Expensive, Ridiculous Game with Poor Taste Dec 18, 2017

    By Katrod1
    I like the app but Players do not follow guidelines or rewards those who do. Players who decorate with rustic, contemporary, modern etc items are not voted by other players as doing a good job while other players who do as they please are selected as an excellent design. Players rarely vote for rooms using colors tend to reward all black/white rooms. In order to garner enough votes to win a prize you have to buy expensive items to decorate your room. The game has charged me for expensive items and then not given them to me. Had to write the game to be reimbursed. Although I was reimbursed, it made me wonder how many problems I may have missed with a large inventory of decorative items. Many of their designs seem to only be geared to use up as much expensive inventory as possible such as holiday items, art, rugs etc.

    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!
  • 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.

    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.

    I’ve enjoyed saving ideas on Houzz for several years. I relied on it when I re-did my backyard and to get decorating inspiration.

  • Annoying back button Feb 5, 2020

    By BellaRR04
    LOVE Houzz! I’ve wasted (um, really enjoyed!!) many hours, perusing and dreaming and shopping on Houzz. The one flaw that really bugs me about the app is part of the shop feature. When shopping for product, specifically rugs, every time I took a closer at an item when I would back out, the app would take me all the way back to the very beginning of the list. Super frustrating and inefficient.
  • Great, but could be better. Jun 19, 2020

    By DarkBubblewrapNinja13
    The app will show you items in rooms of interest and price the mundane stuff you could find most places vs what is actually original and creatively used. Also it will show the same image multiple times with advertisements in between, sprinkling a new one occasionally. It doesn’t always happen, but when it does, I quit using it for a while.

  • 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.

    I mostly love this app. I use it all the time. I have noticed it thinks (stalls out) often, and I have to close the app and reopen it. But more than that, I find it cumbersome to “learn more” about a project. Sometimes folks have asked about a paint color (it’s often not answered by the poster but that’s not on Houzz), but I have to click on every possible photo to see if the question was asked and click again to see if it was answered. It would be great if there was a way to tell which pics have questions and answers. That would save a lot of time. But overall a cool and helpful app.
  • 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.
  • Return to more selective shopping searches…please Sep 10, 2021

    By challenged gigi
    Houz has inspired me for many major projects…including three major remodels on existing properties. I’m about to start the fourth full remodel. In the past I’ve found professionals and bought products through this app. In those days the app was far more selective with “matching” tags to products. Now that feature is cluttered with unrelated ‘matches’ making the shopping feature near worthless. Instead of tapping the white tags, I now screenshot items I’m searching for and then use the Google lense search feature from my photos.
  • Quality of photos deteriorated Sep 28, 2020

    By azo1234567
    Architect/designer here. When houzz came out, I could not do without. Now every time I use it, I’m left with a big meh. I close the app soon after I start my search. So many photos but not the best selections. You search for modern farmhouse, sea side apartments come up. Photos repeat themselves. My last search of contemporary living room photo was a shot of a corner of wall, a counter with tray with liquor in it. I feel like the makers of this app are losing an edge. Perhaps they’re gaining one instead, the one I/design professionals don’t belong in.
  • Great app, some problems though May 19, 2019

    By Amolsarva
    I’ve been looking for good interior design apps for a while, since I’m still young and am not able to go on decorating rooms. When I found houzz, I was pretty excited knowing that real furniture was in it. The idea is great, but they really need to improve on perspective. When you put down a rug in their digital design section, it looks like a block. It needs to look like it is actually on the floor. Smh. Also, you can’t rotate furniture to face the way you want. It just looks like how it was in the photo.
  • 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.
  • Great app, but updates have issues Nov 19, 2017

    By intensifi
    I’ve relied heavily on this app for inspiration for our remodel. However, recently the app has started behaving badly. When searching for a feature (say wainscoting), then trying to filter for the room, style, etc., the app forgets about the feature I’m searching for. It just shows all the rooms that meet the filter criteria. Also, when reviewing photos in search results, if I select to learn more about a photo, then close the photo details when I’m done, the app returns to the top of the search results, rather than the last photo viewed. If The search results have a few hundred photos, it’s extremely time consuming to try to figure out where I was. These bugs make the app significantly less useful. I’m starting to look for a replacement.
  • Merchandise fulfillment and delivery problems Oct 20, 2020

    By pigaroo100
    I have had problems with almost all of my four orders. The first was delivered at the opposite end of the house as requested in delivery instructions and hidden under a table, so not found for several days. The second was a standing lamp, which was missing the lampshade that was supposed to be included. The third was a pair of night table table lamps that turned out to be very low wattage outdoor lights, even though not specified as such, and not useful indoors. The fourth is a Pepper Mill that I have not yet tried using. Although I love the selection of merchandise as it appears on the website, I’ve had so many problems actually receiving what I ordered, that I probably will have to stop using Houzz.
  • I love Houzz but now the app is broken Nov 9, 2017

    By jspitts28
    I use Houzz on my phone all the time, but the last time I logged in I realized something small but very important has changed. When you search for an idea and scroll through photos, then tap on a photo that looks interesting, then tap on the the arrow that takes you back to photos, it refreshes to the top of the page!! Seriously?!? Sometimes I look through photos for a long time, and now I have to scroll scroll scroll just to get back to where I was in the photos list, if I can even find it. Definitely hinders usability in a major way. Plz fix.
  • Good but Photos glitch Nov 10, 2017

    By willwillwillwill
    Houzz has been a pretty good resource for ideas for a long time and has a decently useful app. However, recently I’ve noticed that when you swipe left while viewing a picture to go back to your photo search, it jumps ALL the way back to the top of all of this photos (instead of where you left off). This forces you to scroll all of the way back down to continue to Photos you haven’t seen. It didn’t seem like this was going to be a big deal, but it’s been frustrating enough to waste time on this review.
  • Can’t download images Nov 3, 2019

    By Cb1016
    Houz tried to force you to use links and their site rather than saving images and doesn’t offer any “save image” option on the pictures. I have to take screenshots and even then it opens up a menu to try to force me to keep the image inside of Houzz which feels really shady. Put the users needs first and maybe people will end up wanting to share with your site but it’s obvious you aren’t so now my screenshots come along with a side of bad word of mouth advertising for Houzz.
  • Not what I expected. Apr 15, 2019

    By Firsttimedieter
    I was looking for an app that would help me draw and design a bathroom. This one just let me look at pictures of other peoples bathrooms and pick things I might want to buy from them. That’s not it all what I wanted to do. And now I’ve got designers and stop calling me. And I didn’t want that either. I already have a contractor. I just wanted to use one of those virtual design apps. And that’s with this one implied it was in the App Store. But it’s not that at all. It’s just a consumer site made into an app. I’m deleting it.
  • This is not AR Nov 19, 2017

    By RockNFknRoll
    This app doesn’t work at all like they make it appear. You don’t see smart AR furniture in your living room as if it’s really there, giving you an accurate sense of perspective and size. No, it just gives you a fixed perspective 2D clip art photo of the furniture and YOU have to guess what size it is as you shrink or enlarge the image. There is no AR technology to this that I can see. It’s literally like putting stickers on your photo. Maybe that can be useful to an extent but it’s not even close to what I thought I was getting based on the preview photos and descriptions.
  • Great content but app is unusable Nov 21, 2021

    By lolidkokok
    Great web site with great content, but my god, the app is entirely unusable. Everything freezes and refuses to advance to the next page or update the screen as you’re scrolling. It leads to an endless cycle of restarting the app and it crashing again. I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max and this is the only app with this type of poor performance. Hopefully caused by some recent update and they can resolve rather easily. I won’t be using Houzz for anything at all until it’s fixed.
  • Shipping from Houzz May 23, 2021

    By Kelorah9
    This is the worst company we have ever seen. We ordered two bedside lamps over a month ago and they still have not arrived. After three weeks of waiting, we inquired as to the delay. There were three flimsy excuses. First they said that they didn’t accept phone calls and would only have agent chat. This took 25 minutes to connect. Then the connection was lost. We connected once again and the first excuse was that they were sorry but the package got lost in transit and would be reshipped. Then after another week we got an email that said the package was damaged in transit and would be resent. Five days later the email was changed to say that due to COVID it was still sitting in the warehouse but they were pretty sure we should get it within 5 days. It showed the tracking progress and the warehouse is an hour and a half from our house. Can you tell me why it is taking 5 days for a package to travel 1 1/2 hours (60 miles)? This STINKS. The corporate office is in Palo Alto and I’m in Irvine, CA. I could have driven in one day. This is the MOST RIDICULOUS CARELESS COMPANY I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW THEY STAY IN BUSINESS.
  • 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.

    "Please note that for our legal records, we will keep a record of your deletion request and may also continue to store, in accordance with applicable laws, a limited amount of your information to comply with our legal obligations" This is the paraphrased email I received when trying to delete my account. They make you go the extra mile to delete your account but hold on to info. This makes me uncomfortable.

    By sebas moreles
    to have to cancel membership is such a hassle why cant u just have a cancel membership in settings and be done with it . why have to go through all the customer services and waiting on phone for almost 1 hr for them to hang up on you. then get a call back and have them transfer u to many other representatives who dont seem to know who can cancel for u. so very upset . 😡
  • Houzz stole $2000 from us. Sep 28, 2020

    By Red Lodge Construction Company
    My husband signed up for an account for our new business and was contacted by Houzz with an offer for them to build a business website for us and manage our Houzz account. He accepted the offer, paid $2000!!!, had phone meetings with Houzz, sent job pictures... and then silence. Website has not been built, our Houzz profile links a website to a competing contractor in our city and when asked to remove it no one has done anything, our emails are not being answered, phone messages not being replied to. No one is answering us and we paid money for services that not being fulfilled. I questioned this on the Houzz Facebook and got blocked from commenting. This company seems like a legitimate scam and I hope no one falls for it like we did. Definitely too good to be true. (If anyone from Houzz would like to make this situation correct then please contact your customer, Red Lodge Construction Company and refund the money for the services you were unable to perform.)
  • 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.

  • Expensive, Ridiculous Game with Poor Taste Dec 18, 2017

    By Katrod1
    I like the app but Players do not follow guidelines or rewards those who do. Players who decorate with rustic, contemporary, modern etc items are not voted by other players as doing a good job while other players who do as they please are selected as an excellent design. Players rarely vote for rooms using colors tend to reward all black/white rooms. In order to garner enough votes to win a prize you have to buy expensive items to decorate your room. The game has charged me for expensive items and then not given them to me. Had to write the game to be reimbursed. Although I was reimbursed, it made me wonder how many problems I may have missed with a large inventory of decorative items. Many of their designs seem to only be geared to use up as much expensive inventory as possible such as holiday items, art, rugs etc.
  • Unreliable Jul 21, 2021

    By HellfireBebop
    I have come to the conclusion that there is no easy way to find a decent contractor. You cannot trust sites like Houzz, Yelp, Angi, Homeadvisor, etc, etc,. They’re all bought’n paid for. Look, its no different than the yellow pages telephone book… just modern and online… gee.. great. They pay to be on these sites. You can’t trust any one of them. The only way to attempt to get a decent pro, is to do the work yourself.- background checks, CSLB, and real customer references where you can talk to the customer, confirm they had a completed service, and going to their house and getting a closer look the work. Sorry, but after doing all the above and relying on these sites, I only had 1 contractor out of 5 that I would recommend. The others weren’t just bad, they were nightmares.
