Three Things You Should Know...

...About Houzz.com 

  1. Houzz co-founders Adi Tatarko and Alon Cohen launched the site in February, 2009 as a result of their own remodeling project. Tired of cutting pages out of magazines for their inspiration file, they created an online photo database for people in the process of building, remodeling and decorating.
  2. As of July 2014, the Houzz database contains more than 3.5 million photos of residential interior, exterior and landscape photos. Homeowners browse photos by room, style and location, and bookmark photos in personal collections the site calls "ideabooks."  Over 23+ million users have simply clicked on an image to learn more about the architect, designer, or contractor, ask a question, and learn about products tagged in the photos.
  3. The Houzz.com app is one of the few nongame apps on iOS that have a 5 star rating, according to The Wall Street Journal. There are 17+ Million mobile app installs.
