For anyone with an interest in interior design, the Houzz app is absolutely indispensable. The extremely well-designed layout of this app allows efficient browsing of design elements, organized by room, object, and style. Put together your own ideabook - like a digital scrapbook - composed of the elements you like the most, with the option of adding personalized commentary so that you remember exactly which eclectic chandelier will look simply smashing in your living room.
The really incredible thing about Houzz is the plethora of ways it offers to connect you in real life with the items you see on the screen. Photos of whole room concepts are decked out with tappable tags, leading you to check out a site where you can either make a purchase or get in contact with the designer. This can even be restricted to a local search, meaning you'll quickly focus in on what's most available to you in your area.
It's easy to connect with other Houzz users through browsing the ideabooks of others with similar taste, checking out previous comments on rooms and objects, and browsing the forums. Need advice on table placement? The Houzz community's got your back - poll them about it, ask for new ideas, and get inspired by the projects of other users.
There are no ads to distract you from the displays of beautiful design, and the app itself is free. If you're looking to explore what's out there in the world of interior design, Houzz is the ideal tool to have at your disposal.
