They scammed me to sign up with them. I signed up and was getting phone calls about gutter cleaning. We build high end outdoor amenities. They are nothing more than a high priced fake referral company.

Why do you have to login for the “full experience “? Then, you try and because One of the common login services happens to use 2FA auth, you have to switch apps to get the number but no, the app just sits there when you go back to enter the number. Bad design. Bad requirement. Let me know when you fix it an maybe I’ll give you another chance.

Fury_flies92's Review of HouzzReviewed on 9/2/18 11:30 AM
Cant access the app when registering using gmail with 2-factor auth enabled. When switching to Gmail/Google Authenticator (or maybe any app) to validate the authentication request and toggling back to Houzz it just shows the 3 dot loading screen indefinitely. I’ve tried closing the app and trying again, but it doesn’t work.
ca liz's Review of HouzzReviewed on 9/19/18 2:38 AM
I have used Houzz faithfully since the first of 3 remodels in 2014. It was my favorite app and definitely 5 stars. The home screen was my favorite feature because it surfaced all kinds of ideas I wouldn’t have found without sorting through thousands of images. Could visit every day and have a new set of ideas, products and local contractors to look through. Very efficient and tailored to me. The new home screen takes all that away. No reason to visit every day anymore. Too hard. :(

I can't reinstall the app, after I reset my iPad. It says my iOS version is lower than 10 and the app is not backward compatible. Why am I forced to buy a new iPad now, even though my old one works great?

Nafdor's Review of HouzzReviewed on 8/8/18 8:25 AM
After giving rave reviews 3 years ago, I am no longer a fan. The app constantly crashes and I'm using the same device as before. I also detest the way Houzz has replaced some former features. I liked being able to click on an item in a photograph to reveal the buying source. Now, a bunch of useless "similar" items pop up which is infuriating.

Georgiegaming1's Review of HouzzReviewed on 8/28/19 1:40 PM
I used to love spending a lot of time on Houzz. Now, when I scroll trough photos same pics repeat over and over again. I tried to read an article and says it has 121 comments but on the page are just 3 and no way to access the other ones. The similar item tag is completely off( for a floor lamp it shows that similar items are a bunch of table lamps nowhere near in style)I don’t even attempt to use it anymore. Many times you guys “ improve” something that doesn’t need improvement . When something is not broken,don’t fix it. Now is all annoying to deal with and I don’t spend time on the app anymore. Sad!

I used a find a design/build feature over a week ago to request contact from 3 firms. I’ve yet to receive a call or email from them. Not sure where the disconnect is occurring. Are the requests sent to the firms immediately, as a batch on a weekly basis, other? I did however receive several unsolicited emails selling un-requested services.
Jwilldo's Review of HouzzReviewed on 8/28/19 1:40 PM
Horrible app. Horrible service. Trying to log in made me reset password. That’s ok. But then when u selected to reset it took over 15 min to get the email to do so. Then the link to the reset would time out and make u do the same process over and over. Had to order over the phone! Once I got notice of when the item would ship—it gave a date range: said the 12th-16th However I received that very notice on the 19th! Never using this service again!

It’s a nice place to browse the pics and get some ideas. But, don’t buy the stuff from Houzz. I bought a light and wanted to return, it has additional fee for returning. And the print label didn’t work, so I contacted the customer service using the online chat, and was told to just wait for someone to reach out to me. 2weeks passed, still no update, and the light is 30+ days post the delivery, so can’t return now.

Firsttimedieter's Review of HouzzReviewed on 8/28/19 1:40 PM
I was looking for an app that would help me draw and design a bathroom. This one just let me look at pictures of other peoples bathrooms and pick things I might want to buy from them. That’s not it all what I wanted to do. And now I’ve got designers and stop calling me. And I didn’t want that either. I already have a contractor. I just wanted to use one of those virtual design apps. And that’s with this one implied it was in the App Store. But it’s not that at all. It’s just a consumer site made into an app. I’m deleting it.

sweetlilpsycho's Review of HouzzReviewed on 8/28/19 1:40 PM
The comment section is poorly planned. Someone liking your comment nets you an e-mail that says “go to comment,” but when you click on it, it brings you to the article, not your comment. Additionally, there is no reply option in comments, which makes them relatively useless, especially when many people are asking advice in the comment section. This isn’t rocket science, Houzz. Make your app developers give you your money’s worth.

Bay Area Client's Review of HouzzReviewed on 8/28/19 1:40 PM
Joanne was so cheerful and easy to work with. We had sent for her to fly into the Bay Area to help us set up our new home. She studied our taste in various objects and paintings with attention to space and color. She went the extra mile to help us find the perfect sectional sofa in grey to compliment the multiple colors in our paintings, rugs, in contrast to our blonde wood floors. With an African and international bedroom and Carribean guest room, we have our dream house that we intended. We have a warm and inviting home that has an eclectic flair that is comfortable and inviting to all who visit.

If you screenshot anything in the app , it bothers you to sign in. The annoying notice takes over your screen every time. So, I recovered my old account from circa 2012, then wasted an hour resetting password with no luck. "Username or password not recognized" every time no matter what. Very annoying waste of time with this app.

Amolsarva's Review of HouzzReviewed on 8/28/19 1:40 PM
I’ve been looking for good interior design apps for a while, since I’m still young and am not able to go on decorating rooms. When I found houzz, I was pretty excited knowing that real furniture was in it. The idea is great, but they really need to improve on perspective. When you put down a rug in their digital design section, it looks like a block. It needs to look like it is actually on the floor. Smh. Also, you can’t rotate furniture to face the way you want. It just looks like how it was in the photo.
Natashakingdom's Review of HouzzReviewed on 8/25/18 5:32 PM
Don’t get me wrong, the products that Houzz offers are beautiful, but my experience with Houzz so far has been the worst. I bought the perfect desk for my room, and when it finally arrived, the corners of the wood were chipped off, there were blue marker drawings, and it was dirty. I believe it was a desk that had been used, then returned. I immediately called Houzz & they kindly sent me another one. However, the shipping of the new desk is taking foreverrrr. I am currently sitting on my kitchen table waiting for that desk to arrive. It’s really annoying. I was supposed to have my desk set up two weeks ago.

R & E Remodeling did a great job of replacing some outdated iron posts with wooden posts in my carport. They arrived on time to start and worked full days until the job was finished. I was very pleased with their work. The price was spot on with other quotes that I received but I chose them for the good reviews I read. I highly recommend them. I’m already planning my second home repair project with them.

Trying to leave this comment reminded me of when I played video games as a kid and just as I was about to beat my younger brother he would jump up and turn the console off so there was no record of the game even occurring. In this case, every time I try to leave a negative comment the app ‘unexpectedly turns off’ I wonder if my brother is working for Houzz, hmmm. Seriously put, this app is great... when it works. Ultimately, too temperamental for me though.

Halotuc's Review of HouzzReviewed on 7/12/18 5:31 PM
I’m currently building a house and Houzz has been super helpful during this process. However, every 2 or 3 days, the screen goes white and stays that way, until I delete the app and then download it again. It’s super annoying when I’m at a meeting with builders and can’t pull up the information I need. After several attempts at ordering 4 light fixtures through the app, I gave up and bought them from somewhere else. Houzz is such a great resource. I hope this problem gets resolved, because at least in my case, they lost potential business in the retail aspect of their app. Until then I will just keep deleting and re-downloading the app to get to my Ideabooks and their awesome photos, but making my purchases through sites that won’t crash on me.
Azchick02's Review of HouzzReviewed on 6/9/18 3:19 AM
I used to be obsessed with this app, but now it seems they’ve started adding novice photos with mediocre design? Maybe some people like it but I used to love the high end photos and design because they were more inspiring, I don’t want to see a photo of a toilet seat that I could have taken myself (truly, this is a photo). Who is regulating this? Very disappointing.

chamorro's Review of HouzzReviewed on 6/5/18 3:52 PM
Received my order damaged and trying to get a refund is challenging. Houzz doesn’t even use their own app to message back to buyer(me). They use only my email address and with the amount of ad emails they send it gets caught in spam filters quite often. I will probably never see my $300 again. 🤬I’m sure they are good when everything is working but they reveal the real company when things go bad.

AdZoot's Review of HouzzReviewed on 6/26/18 11:20 PM
We were huge fans of Houzz and used them when designing our house but we have since lost all trust and appreciation for Houzz after trying for months to get a negative review posted (about our builder, who currently has a Houzz award showing on their business page) and running into an endless cycle of our review being refused, inquiries to their support system (which is only via their site), trying to talk to someone to find out where we were violating the review policy and getting endless generic answers in response then rewriting it again only to start the cycle all over. We’ve decided at this point they are blocking us from posting a negative review and now we no longer trust any of the reviews on their site. Beware if you are reading stellar reviews about a company on their site you might only be seeing a filtered list of the actual feedback with negative reviews never being successfully posted. I hope this isn’t true and they redeem themselves but after so much time, so many support tickets and even just now getting hung up on twice when calling their only published number, it sure seems international.

Lisaannschu's Review of HouzzReviewed on 6/17/18 12:53 AM
In our opinion, no, just no! We used them and never had a follow up after seeding. They seeded an entire area we asked them not to seed (because we told Bob we wanted to garden where they actually seeded). We had to rent a tiller to get rid of the grass (that not only we were charged for, but had to pay to rent a tiller to take up). No one ever came to follow up after seeding and we have a ton of rocks in our grass that we paid to have taken up. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!
NSDoug's Review of HouzzReviewed on 6/16/18 4:39 PM
Houzz only posts positive reviews submitted by users. This may make them attractive to contractors but is very unfair and dishonest towards customers who use their app. I want true results when selecting a contractor not just results that benefit the company and Houzz. I wrote an honest and thought out review that was not positive and it never showed up. I write both positive and negative reviews as experienced.

Camila Santo's Review of HouzzReviewed on 5/30/18 7:55 PM
I already purchased a few items from Houzz in different occasions, and this is my conclusion: don’t risk to pay for a stressful experience by purchasing items that are over a small drawer’s size. I got recently a bookshelf delivered to my home. And only then could realize the assembling parts were simply too big. It barely crossed my front door, and the parts were too bulky and heavy. Problem is I’m currently seven months pregnant, and this type of labor could be dangerous for me and my baby. Their product description is not precise enough. First, providing just the dimensions of the furniture assembled doesn’t tell you how the parts are. Secondly, you might read generic promises like “30 day return” or “full refund” but that only applies to specific cases, that you’ll confirm only when it’s too late for you to cancel the order. So you think there is no risk of not seeing the furniture in person first, but you’re wrong. After the delivery is made, even if you didn’t pay for shipping, they’ll make you pay it back. And not even think you might get an answer if you ask this type of questions upfront. They don’t reply to inquiries. They actually don’t read them, even by email when you have an open case they keep replying with automated templates. In the return process, the customer service totally ignored when I informed the package doesn’t fit any car, and it’s a health risk for a pregnant woman. They sent me a label, which costs half of the price of the furniture, for me to basically figure it out. I can not even buy a better bookshelf because I have this giant elephant hanging on my room. They don’t take responsibility for their mistakes, and not even tried to consider the possibility of a full refund. I ask them to contact the builder and let them know about the problem, but Houzz sent me a link to review them instead. It’s all about links, nothing about a good user experience. Is a perfect example of good technology and terrible awareness about what is a quality customer service. In my condition, this type of app could solve a lot of struggles I have to deal with when going to stores and buying furniture in person. But Houzz don’t really care about their customers, as we’re just a credit card number for them to charge as they find convenient to their own interest.

I ordered a product from this company & somehow the info they had on the same page was not exactly what I was ordering so when I called them to send it back & hey a refund they had to send my info to a third party. Never called me back and never took care of the issue. If a company can’t take care of your needs themselves and handle issues like mine the way Target or Walmart can I don’t think it’s worth the risk. I’m just thankful I didn’t purchase my final product with them which was more costly.

Mad as hell in PA's Review of HouzzReviewed on 5/22/18 11:33 PM
I would hope Houzz would research contractor and make sure they provide proof of their work, license and references before letting up add an account. I found a contractor here called Pro Home Renovators out of Levittown, Pa and he was a total scam. Scam me of a lot of money. I reported to Houzz and no one has called me back or respond to my review.

Latest update makes the app unusable. Crashes as soon as I select a photo to view. Tried reinstalling but it still doesn't work. Wish there was a way to go back to previous version.
Techgirl50's Review of HouzzReviewed on 5/1/18 2:52 AM
I used to love this app...but no more. The photos take forever to load, if they load at all. Searches with multiple criteria no longer work. What happened to the downloading of an idea book feature? This was excellent if you needed to show someone pics you’d saved and knew wireless wouldn’t be available. Rather than making a great app better, Houzz has somehow found a way to s**** this app up over time. I’ll try it a few more times and if it doesn’t get better the app will be removed from my iPad.

We used MSC Enterprise for a 200 sq ft addition to our kitchen and a compete gut and redo of our existing kitchen I would highly recommend them to anyone for a contractor. Austin handled everything from A-Z with complete attention to detail and never forgetting that we lived there. We were kept up on every detail and all his subs were of the highest quality I can highly recommend MSC with total confidence in the job you will receive Sara and Mike Fisch

After you select and image on your phone you aren’t able to hit the back button. To your larger query. The back button often does not work on iPhone X. You have to close out of the app and start over after you’ve enlarged something for viewing which is not very functional of course.

SonjasonSoundCloud's Review of HouzzReviewed on 4/13/18 6:19 PM
I actually pay a lot of money to houzz each year as a contractor looking to reach prospective clients. So it’s extra disappointing that over the last year, and despite updates, I can never seem to get the app to open/not get hung up/or just otherwise completely glitch out. Also, anytime I click on a link online it forces me to open the app, so I can see that likely my work and advertisement is not making it to most clients. I will not be renewing my contract with them this year on account of it. Too bad, because I do think they offer a great resource to everyone engaging in remodel work— if they can access it. : (

When I began my new home build process I used Houzz to gather ideas and then shared them with my architect and builder. My dream house is exactly what I wanted and was completed ahead of schedule. Great app, but why in the world did you change your logo? Not good, looks unfinished. Your other logo at least had style.

I like seeing all the styles & choices, but I would really like to see more “average” people homes. There are many homes worth millions that pop up in a search such as “tiny kitchen.” Some tiny kitchens show up, but most probably cost what my whole house is worth. Please consider the non-rich people who have to do it all themselves (& enjoy it!) & don’t have designers & architects at their beck & call. I have nothing against architects or designers! Hooray for what they do;-) I will just never be able to hire either & would like choices geared to my kind.

Annoyedbypickingnicknames's Review of HouzzReviewed on 3/18/18 4:15 PM
I used to like houzz. The forums with comments from designers and architects made for a pleasant experience. Now, the app has price tags all over professional photos. The price tags have links to cheap products that houzz sells. I don’t like it. Photos saved to galleries was a useful tool. The point to having pinned photos into galleries is to show professionals a look. It’s a way to tell a design story for those who aren’t designers. And it would help clarify the taste for people who don’t have a design vocabulary. Now it’s all junked up with dangling price tags and links. So sad. It all feels very venture capital. Good luck with that!

T-mobile partnered with houzz so i got 15 $10 off codes one from each line and place orders. Orders went through fine and was told it would ship first week of march 2018. Even after successfully place of orders and getting confirmation of orders, the next day they cancelled all orders. Such a unprofessional service they should not have allowed to place the order at first place. I had started to like the app/site but the next day hated it and not good customer service.
DebfromNoank's Review of HouzzReviewed on 2/25/18 1:02 PM
I love many features of this app, but recent updates seem to have removed some of its most useful features. I use Houzz Ideabooks as a tool to help with remodeling and design ideas. The original app for years allowed the user to move photos around within each Ideabook, allowing one to compare a subset of ideas (e.g., compare bathtubs in an Ideabook on bathrooms) but that ability suddenly has vanished without warning, as has the ability to move from one Ideabook to another. This greatly diminishes the app’s usefulness. Help! Freezing the contents and placement of photos in Ideabooks is not a good idea. Thank you!

As a professional designer, I use this app on my computer of the time. However, using it on the iPad is somewhat challenging. When you try to make a comment, the typing is not always accurate and you can’t go back, and to make it worse, then you can’t even post it! Additionally, you can’t delete individual pictures from boards; you can only delete the entire board. Perhaps this function exists, but I haven’t been able to find it. I hope the developers read these reviews and learn from them.

Katrod1's Review of HouzzReviewed on 12/18/17 2:12 PM
I like the app but Players do not follow guidelines or rewards those who do. Players who decorate with rustic, contemporary, modern etc items are not voted by other players as doing a good job while other players who do as they please are selected as an excellent design. Players rarely vote for rooms using colors tend to reward all black/white rooms. In order to garner enough votes to win a prize you have to buy expensive items to decorate your room. The game has charged me for expensive items and then not given them to me. Had to write the game to be reimbursed. Although I was reimbursed, it made me wonder how many problems I may have missed with a large inventory of decorative items. Many of their designs seem to only be geared to use up as much expensive inventory as possible such as holiday items, art, rugs etc.

This app has grown its offerings nicely over time. I really like their TV episodes. Also liking their built-in shopping. I’d like to see search remember where I last left off in a list of thumbnail search results. Right now it seems to revert to the top of a list of thumbnails after drilling into a photo which is disorienting and fatiguing after a while. I’d also like to see more variety in ideas for the photos. When I search for modern style, for example, countless results look so similar. Houzz should be pushing to surface unique results that feel fresh and not stale.

App crashes when trying to rearrange photos within an Idea Book. Why oh why did you change the size of the news feed photos to be so tiny??? As an example, when taping on “Latest in Discussions” and then viewing the “design dilemma” discussion, the pictures used to be on the left and were large and easily identifiable. Now they are tiny thumbnails off to the right. Remember, the Houzz app is a completely VISUAL tool. It is a complete fail to make the photos in the feed so small....it totally takes away from what used to be a great experience.

Indoor kitty's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/19/17 9:14 PM
I have a love hate relationship with this app. In Design Home, one is given the challenge of decorating rooms with real, high end furniture in homes around the world. How fun! The caveat is the budget. The virtual cash and diamond awards are not sufficient. That leaves the user with 2 choices - purchase diamonds with real cash, or go to Tapjoy for awards. I found myself taking hours of surveys to earn diamonds to support my design habit. To add insult to injury, sometimes I didn’t actually receive the award. I have contacted Tapjoy multiple times for rewards I didn’t receive and have received no response. Hopefully, Design Home will up their free cash and diamond awards or quitting Design Home might end up being my New Years resolution.
RockNFknRoll's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/19/17 6:05 PM
This app doesn’t work at all like they make it appear. You don’t see smart AR furniture in your living room as if it’s really there, giving you an accurate sense of perspective and size. No, it just gives you a fixed perspective 2D clip art photo of the furniture and YOU have to guess what size it is as you shrink or enlarge the image. There is no AR technology to this that I can see. It’s literally like putting stickers on your photo. Maybe that can be useful to an extent but it’s not even close to what I thought I was getting based on the preview photos and descriptions.
intensifi's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/19/17 5:44 PM
I’ve relied heavily on this app for inspiration for our remodel. However, recently the app has started behaving badly. When searching for a feature (say wainscoting), then trying to filter for the room, style, etc., the app forgets about the feature I’m searching for. It just shows all the rooms that meet the filter criteria. Also, when reviewing photos in search results, if I select to learn more about a photo, then close the photo details when I’m done, the app returns to the top of the search results, rather than the last photo viewed. If The search results have a few hundred photos, it’s extremely time consuming to try to figure out where I was. These bugs make the app significantly less useful. I’m starting to look for a replacement.

stodski01's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/17/17 12:10 AM
The newest version of this app is absolutely horrible! It’s now extremely slow and returns to the top of the list each time you exit from looking at the pictures of a house! Please bring back the old version.
Iamamover's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/16/18 1:59 PM
I absolutely love this app, and refer to it often. I have built three homes and I am in the process of building my fourth. Not to mention two gut jobs in between all this construction. I even hired my decorator by looking at the site because I could see her work and read her reviews. My only suggestion is to be able to filter by state and not just metro area. I'm building a home in Florida so I have to look at Miami, Tampa, and Orlando separately. Why can't I just click on Florida instead?

Please fix iPhone X, the photos are fully zoomed in as you scroll through making it impossible to browse through.

I like this app a lot. Or use it often. My only gripe is when I tap on the photo, and then go back, the scroll position resets on the photo grid. If this is fixed I will give it five stars.
HonnestTruthJP11's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/14/17 3:00 AM
I am not sure if this is a bug or not but whenever I select an image to see the details page then go back to the feed. It force scrolls me back to the top of the feed instead of taking me back to the feed position that I left. This makes the app unusable to me and a major headache. I will try to see if this is fixed with the next update.

Jaron A Mo's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/13/17 8:53 PM
The app is generally a good one. 1. I cannot view my orders or notifications. The screen never actually loads. 2. After making a purchase, there are a few items in which I cannot contact the seller. The shipping status never updates and I’m left wondering when I’m going to receive my product. 3. Everything else is ok..
kjherbst's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/12/17 11:11 PM
Fantastic app. There is one issue, however. When you scroll down through images, then select a picture so that you can see it up closer, and then go back from that image, it throws you all the way back to the top. You’ll have to scroll all over again to get back to the spot you were at. Please fix this! Otherwise, incredible app for home design.
Loveing's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/11/18 9:18 PM
The app is amazing except for the fact that every time you screenshot something it immediately prompts you to save the picture on your houzz profile. This is a small nuisance, but until things change I cannot grant Houzz with a 5 star review. Just know I will never save my screenshots to my profile houzz. Never.

I hardly ever look at it anymore. Everything loads so slowly and it has become so commercial. It used to be a genuine online community with fun articles and beautiful pictures. I’ll probably delete it soon.Sad that it has strayed so far from the original.
WTigris's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/11/17 3:33 PM
When i press back from an image it goes back to the search results and scrolls back up to the top immediately, it’s very frustrating when you’re browsing/searching and it loses your place to look at an image. Also seems like the same images come up again and again.
sandynkiki's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/11/17 3:16 PM
I love this app but a recent change in your app is very frustrating. When looking at photos or shopping selection. When you select the in app “back” (photo), it takes you back to the first photo, not where you left off. This means if you have been looking at photos for a while you after scroll a long ways through-very annoying.
jme2maui's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/10/17 7:35 AM
So I tap on a photo to get/see more info. When I’m done I push “ < back “ in top left corner of photo and it goes back to the very top of the page I’ve done a specific search for?? For example: I “searched” in photos for tropical interiors. I’d scrolled down the page about 120 photos, tapped on a photo I liked to see more info. When I went “back” to my search feed instead of returning to the spot I was at it starts at the top again. This happened numerous times and I got tired of having to scroll down hundreds of photos to continue where I left off. I just closed the app and hopefully the next update fixes this.
willwillwillwill's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/10/17 4:23 AM
Houzz has been a pretty good resource for ideas for a long time and has a decently useful app. However, recently I’ve noticed that when you swipe left while viewing a picture to go back to your photo search, it jumps ALL the way back to the top of all of this photos (instead of where you left off). This forces you to scroll all of the way back down to continue to Photos you haven’t seen. It didn’t seem like this was going to be a big deal, but it’s been frustrating enough to waste time on this review.
shelbss01's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/10/17 4:00 PM
I’ve used this app and loved it, but when I search and save it to a board, it automatically scrolls you to the top, so if you’ve scrolled a ways down you have to start all over to get to that point again. please fix.
Sam Anness's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/10/17 11:19 AM
Thanks for the app. I love your app. But I wish that when you clicked on a photo that you could remove those little white tags. I also wish that once you were done looking at a photo that your app did not scroll all the way back to the top when you are looking at a series of photos. Thanks
Pinkmel1224's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/10/17 10:58 PM
I ordered what we’re supposed to be high end bath towels that cost a pretty penny. What I received were rough scratchy garbage that shredded in the first wash. Houzz tells me the vendor was told to contact me which they never did. Houzz does not exercise any responsibility when it comes to enforcing communication between customers and vendors and they are a far cry from the excellent initiative eBay takes when a customer gets hosed on a garbage product. I will never order from them again!
Dddddiiiisssapointing's Review of HouzzReviewed on 11/1/17 9:08 PM
I loved this app to browse photos for ideas. But I made the mistake of making purchases and that has been a terrible experience. The notification and message features are cumbersome and jus don’t work. Houzz censored my review. There are multiple levels from Houzz to the supplier to the manufacturer so communication is impossible for refund.

Starfaced5's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/9/18 3:10 AM
With these thousands of positives, you don't need mine too, but I have to add so I can say how much I appreciate the rich content of this app. American designers take a bow....you are as fabulous as these submissions in Houzz. Never ceases to amaze me, how extensive the site is, a room full of exploration, leading one room to another, lavishly done. Worthy of iPad, glorious as an iPad is....Houzz should win an Academy Award in all categories. ##### updating my review to lament the negatives others have posted. I use an iPad and not had any crashing like what is being reported by others in their reviews. Are you doing the updates for Houzz and your other your Apps? Go to App Store and engage Updates. Houzz is one delicious website. I've used it as a portal to find and buy high quality, well priced items for the home. It’s great for home improvement ideas of all kinds. Maybe in your computer settings, maybe remove the app entirely and reload fresh. Dunno, but I feel your pain.

Notorious TOG's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/8/18 12:57 PM
I like the app, however when I open up a zoomed in image of a product it is impossible to close the image. The ‘X’ in the top left corner doesn’t respond as it should. I end up closing the app and having to reset all of my filters to continue my search. This is beyond frustrating and renders the app useless.

BR1945's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/6/18 9:33 PM
We recently remodeled our summer cottage and I went to Beyond Shades looking for window treatment ideas. I ended up placing an order for all the windows - 19 woven wood shades and 5 wood blinds. Rose, the salesperson/ consultant who helped me was incredibly patient and helpful. She drove the hour and a half drive to the cottage to do preliminary measurements and make the final selections. After the installation she returned to make sure everything was perfect. The factory had incorrectly fabricated three of the shades. She immediately made arrangements for their replacement. The new shades are now in place and I couldn’t be more pleased. The installers employed by Beyond shades were professional, speedy and courteous. All in all, working with Beyond Shades was a pleasure.
cbmap's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/31/18 7:44 PM
This new update is awful. Saved several ideas to ideabook but can’t retrieve it. Wasted all that search time. Tried to email a picture, to myself, that didn’t work either. Lots of good ideas but without and way to store, retrieve or share it is basically useless. Also, it would be nice to have some contact info to get help. Previous version much more user friendly.

Bphil86's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/24/17 7:32 PM
I credit this app with helping me do a kitchen renovation that I just love. Best thing about this app is that you can search gazillion of photos by key word so you can visualize what different decorating /remodeling styles look like. The search can be really specific like walnut counter island with exposed brick in kitchens and boom you have tons of photos. The discussion Boards are also good for asking advice.
kikalulu's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/24/17 4:05 AM
I like this app a lot, I use it all of the time. My only wish would be that the editors or whomever is in charge, would ask the architects and designers that if they are going to post photos of their work, they MUST answer questions when people ask! Some of them do, but many others don't and that is frustrating. Feels like they are using the app to advertize their work and not to showcase and share ideas and resources, which is supposed to be one of the reasons why this app is so unique and wonderful. Also, please don't let amateurs post bad photos of their half way done work, where they not only present a dark badly taken photo but they don't even show a before and after. My two cents!
DNGRZN's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/24/17 3:12 PM

KrisABS123's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/23/18 4:40 PM
I found Houzz as a resource for inspiration pictures in building a new house, but I quickly discovered that it held even more value in the forums, especially those that originated in GardenWeb, which were filled with long-time members and experienced professionals who gave their advice for free. Unfortunately, Houzz’s terrible management decisions have driven away many of those people. They’re destroying much of what made the site and app unique and valuable to me as a homebuilder.
johnnie Carson's Review of HouzzReviewed on 10/23/17 3:37 AM
Searching needs to be improved so I can find specific items by specific designers. I want to find Marge Carson furniture by category such as collection, type of piece, style. The search criteria, if improved, will give you a competitive differentiation against sites like Chairish. I am a technologist and work with Fortune 50 companies to make this better. I find it onerous to try to find marge Carson pet sofas on this site which are for sale......

I’ve been loving all the updates they’ve been doing. One feature I liked was that you could save to multiple ideabooks at once. But now it only lets me choose one ideabook at a time, and then I have to save before I can save the same photo to another ideabook. Wish they would change it back... other than that, I love this app and it’s definitely one that I use on the reg!

mee920's Review of HouzzReviewed on 1/26/18 4:10 PM
I am remodeling my kitchen. Was told to get an undercount Blanco sink because of durability, ease and beauty. 1st one came and was installed. Plumber didn’t notice the c**** until he filled it up with water. Saw puddles in cabinet underneath. Ugh! Replaced with 2nd Blanco sink. Installers inspected this one before putting in and found a c**** in this one! I am waiting on my 3rd Blanco to arrive and wondering if I should cancel this and order something else. All of my installers are very surprised by the cracks. They all say they haven’t seen this happen. Maybe 3rd time’s a charm?

Italypls's Review of HouzzReviewed on 1/2/18 3:26 PM
Bought a rug from this app. I knew there was a small window to reach out to them if I decided to return it. Which I did, so I emailed them within a few days. They got back to me during vacation so I did not get the chance to respond right away confirming I did want to return the rug. When I did, it was still technically within the returns window but they said it took me too long and now the window has passed. 3 weeks go by if back and forth and they said theyre finally willing to accept the return given I reached out right away, despite it being outside the return window. Only they emailed me this during my holiday vacation when I was visiting family. I asked if I could return it when I got home and they said no and were unwilling to work with me! Now they're blaming me that a return will not be accepted 6 weeks late even though I waited for them for 3 weeks to make up their minds!
