Ready or Not....It's Time to Renovate, Redo, or Just Look for Ideas

Needing a place to store your home decor or renovation ideas? Read on to discover a hot, new website that keeps you organized while allowing you to store all of your ideas in one place.

Have you ever wanted to change the look of your home?  Found a paint color sample at a hardware store and wanted to save it for when you decided to change the  color of your living room?  Have you ever been to a restaurant and commented that you loved the way the kitchen was set-up and wanted that in your next home?

Enter Houzz.com. It's a hot new website that has lots of people talking.  

Houzz was developed by a husband and wife who wanted to renovate their home, yet struggled to describe their vision. They were told to buy books, magazines, and to clip photos. But they found that it wasn’t efficient because there were too many images to keep track of and it was very disorganized. Developing a one-stop website for collecting ideas is genius and gives the homeowner an exact vision of what they don't like and what they do want to change.

The Houzz iPad app has been downloaded more than one million times.  The website is user-friendly and you can store hundreds of ideas for your next renovation or building project in folders called "idea books."

Keeping up-to-date on trends and improving your home gives it more value and makes it more marketable.  Check out www.houzz.com and let me know what you think!
