Receiving the Best of Houzz Service award

We’re proud to announce that we have received the Best of Houzz award for Customer Service for three years running. For anyone who hasn’t used the platform before, Houzz is like Pinterest, but more focused on aspects of house design. Anyone within the building industry such as architects, interior designers, builders etc can really use this as a tool to their advantage. It’s recently opened up the platform further by offering a space for homeowners to find decor to buy for their space; including the ability for artists to showcase their work here.

The Houzz awards are presented on a yearly basis for three categories; these are Service, Design and Photography. Winning the Service award is usually attained through receiving quality reviews from others within the Houzz platform. By receiving this, we’d like to think that it shows our dedication to providing a good service to our clients; and we’d also like to say a big thank you to those of you who gave us reviews on there and made winning the award possible! We’ll continue to provide the best level of service that we can, and help you with your architectural projects to the best of our ability.

We’ve Received A Best Of Houzz 2016 Award!

We’re very pleased to have been recognised for this as we pride ourselves on delivering the best service that we can. This is made even better by the fact that it’s been awarded by a body such as Houzz, which is meant specifically for anyone with an interest in house design, so architects, interior designers, kitchen designers and anyone else in the industry can really thrive here.

These awards are given out annually in three different categories; Design, Customer service and photography. Winners of the design awards were the people whose work was the most popular amongst all users on Houzz. The customer service award was won by people dependent on a number of factors including the number and quality of recent client reviews. Photographs which were the most popular were recognised with a photography award.

We’ve included the press release Houzz published for these awards below for those of you interested in knowing more about it, although it only mentions North America, awards have been given out in the UK as well. We’d also like to thank all who have supported us so far, and hope that they continue to do so.

We’re on Houzz

We’ve recently set up a profile on a social media platform called Houzz, this is all about design, mainly interior design and lifestyle images. We like to think of it as a more specialised version of Pinterest, but specifically for design. Imagine the stack of magazines from which you’ve been trying to get ideas for your home, when you try to find the specific images again it can be quite time-consuming.

That is where Houzz can help you and your designer(s). Houzz has a large directory of beautiful photos which you can browse through, one of its main features allows you to put groups of images into groups called ‘ideabooks’. These ideabooks could be thought of as your online scrapbooks, other people can also add to your ideabooks if you send them an invite. So your interior designer, or architect could share ideas with you just by adding photos to this online scrapbook of yours!

You could be looking for a certain type of style for your room or home. You can search Houzz for images with a certain style in mind, it will search its repertoire of images and you can see if there’s anything you like. When you click on an image, it will show you other images in that ideabook as well as other images people who have liked that image have also liked. So you can view images that people who have a similar taste to you have found, making it easier to find ideas your dream room(s).

What’s more, you can find professionals to hire for certain aspects of the designs and perhaps even building your vision. There is also a review system based upon what people think of that particular professional so that you can check their reputation and view their projects and ideabooks. There is also an advice section where you can post any design related queries you might have for other design enthusiasts, or professionals to answer. You can ask about certain products in photos, post your own photos and ask for advice and a lot more!
