I’ve been an avid user of design app Houzz for a while now.
The app, which is like a Pinterest for home-lovers, was recently named the best Android app by Google at its IO developers conference for its Play Awards.
It lets you explore different designs, interiors as well as furniture for your home and can even connect you to designers, professionals and other home owners.
Recently, the app launched Sketch, a tool within the app that lets you design and decorate your dream home. Users can access the Houzz database which has more than 10 million images or even take a photo of their home that they can edit. Users can then add in products, annotate, make notes and rearrange furniture until they get something they’re happy with.
I tried out Sketch and found it surprisingly easy to create my dream home. It also helps that there are so many styles to choose from including contemporary, eclectic, country, industrial or beach style.
The app is also available for iOS.
Here’s a walk-through of it below.
