Browse photos by style, room and location and save them to your virtual ideabook — it's the equivalent of clipping design magazines to a scrapbook — making ideas easier to search, save, and share.

Find everything from products curated by our editorial team to top-rated local designers, architects, contractors and other home pros who can help you realize your ideas. The best part is, browsing your ideabook, they'll get exactly what you're trying to do.

  • Please show floor plans!

    by Kinhy

    I enjoy this app very much, I use it for ideas constantly. I would like to see floor plans along with these beautiful homes and pictures. I feel this would be beneficial to the app users as well as create business opportunities for the architects, designers and builders.

  • Great app

    by TheLainster

    Many awesome ideas!

  • Love this app!

    by TerriVA

    The pictures in this app are beautiful and so full of information! The whole website is user-friendly. I can spend lots of fun time just looking and studying. Great resource for decorating!

  • Bevie

    by EddieBCuervo

    Excellent app. I always enjoy getting my notice for a new newsletter. Lots of great information. One of my favorite apps that I use routinely.

  • Pretty Cool Ish

    by Sterling B

    User friendly. Great ideas. Helpful community. What more could a guy want?

  • Specific audience

    by Big Dan westerhauser

    Generally it caters to an affluent audience as indicated by the photos and the products. I have to go to the articles to find something outside this. I am likely not your audience, but would appreciate seeing images in my financial range. I am not talking cheap, but rather eclectic. Give it some thought. I am anxious to see what you come up with.this may take more work than making your rounds at the latest home show.

  • Searches are frustrating

    by Carlyparly

    No question this app is an expansive resource for design ideas. I use it often...but, searches are frustrating. Images appear that do not fit the description entered in the search box. This means sorting through superfluous images to find ones that match the criteria needed.

  • Favorite

    by Bellebabyrun

    Before I do anything in my house, I look through Houzz. I have tons of images saved for my dream kitchen and master bath. I even found an architect that I'm going to use for the projects.

    by Ibdrummin342

    by Nonicknamepleasej

    The app is great if it didn't have some issues. I did Enjoyed it for a few days..then it would close as soon as I open it..,please fix it. K, I found some suggestion that if you delete app from you device and download it again it should still have all of your ideabooks , so I did that and it's working now

    by Asc1217

    Best app ever

  • Love it!

    by Krissie99

    This app has a great design and anyone can figure it out. It has amazing ideas from different! designers, different styles, and we have been using a lot of the ideas for when we build our house. My only complaint(and this isn't the app's fault) is that when you ask the designers questions and they never respond. It should be a requirement that if you post pics you have to be willing to answer questions! :) overall, love, love, love it!!

    by HouzzAddict Designer

    Interior Designer by trade, absolutely the best site for expressing my ideas to my clients visually. The old saying a picture is worth a thousand words is exemplified by the Houzz app!!!

  • Good App That Drains Battery

    by Boston Designer

    I love Houzz. I'm an interior designer who uses this app with clients to share ideas. I also have my own work showcased there. My big complaint about the app is that it immediately drains the battery. My iPhone went from 40% to 0 in just a few minutes. My new iPad Air crashed using it last night. Please fix this and then I can give the app 5 stars.

  • New Construction not such a nightmare when you can HOUZZ

    by KW787

    We have been Houzzers for 2 years, collecting as much inspiration as we can for our new construction home in Iowa. Our "rustic contemporary" taste has been fulfilled by pix on the site! Also advice on mixing metals or types of countertops have guided us to make good decisions. We have even purchased products from suggested retailers. We are in the final stages of construction and hope to post pix on the site and maybe some of the other "Houzzers" will add them to their idea books:) lots of love from you most loyal Houzz junky!

    I can't say enough great things about Houzz! I am constantly searching for keywords like: "oversized couch", or "neutral casual den", or "breakfast room cafe table" or "home business inventory storage" & all the results are fabulous! I have several idea books saved & I am adding more to them everyday. I have shown this app to several friends & colleagues & most already have it & love it's much as me! I highly recommend this app to anyone buying a house, new furniture, having a baby, renovating, or selling their home. I'd like to sincerely thank the creators for their hard work & the designers for lending me inspiration. Thank you!!!! Pam, Wash. DC
