Why We Use Houzz

Monday, October 6

Categories: Announcements, Construction Design

We’re always attracted to great ideas and conversations about design and construction. Three years ago, we began using then-unknown as a means of encouraging our clients to create “Ideabooks.” Back when we started using Houzz there were maybe two million users nationwide, and merely a few thousand here in the Triangle region. Three years later, the use of Houzz has exploded!


We felt it was a useful way for them to efficiently gather their favorite images, ideas and design styles, all the while saving them in one convenient place.

This way, whether using a laptop, desktop, or mobile device, our clients could save images to their own idea folders and share their thoughts with us through visuals. Which sure beats ripping pages out of magazines!


If you’re considering a new home, or an update to your existing residence, Houzz may be just what you need to help gather and organize your ideas.


The Rufty Homes Top Seven Reasons We Use Houzz



Some clients can visualize their dreams and clearly communicate them. Others need to point to examples for inspiration. Houzz is ideal for everybody.


For six straight years, Rufty Homes has been named top custom home builder in our region by the Triangle Business Journal. Many builders claim they do “custom” work, then turn around and offer a selection of homes to chose from. Whereas, we start you with a blank canvas and ask, “What’s your dream?”


Nothing is stronger than a happy client sharing their experiences with us. Houzz facilitates this relationship.


You may have noticed a tiny Houzz icon while browsing photos in our gallery. Click that icon on your favorite photos. Viola! They appear in your Houzz ideabook. No more bookmarks, forgotten links, or, gasp, magazine clippings.


A picture’s worth a thousand words. On Houzz, we showcase ideas by room – indoors and outdoors. And when you’re looking for something specific, i.e., “walnut cabinets” or “weathered brick,” you’re guided to options, seamlessly.


Our favorite partners are on Houzz. So, whether you’d like interior design ideas, or the latest trends in natural stone, the very best professionals and our trusted partners showcase their skills on Houzz.


Houzz is an easy-to-use site that brings more than 20 million homeowners together in a uniquely visual online community.
