I had runners laid on my steps and they are magnificent! The owners and installer bent over backwards to ensure I was happy and even beat a tight deadline I was facing prior to surgery. They helped me thing through my runner choice and felt like family!
No C&B furniture in “in room view”? 3/5
I click on see in room view but there is no Crate and Barrel furniture in the picture? Great idea if it worked.
Love the awesome pics and tips!
Frequent crashes BUG FIXED!!! 5/5
UPDATE: Support immediately contacted me after I posted my negative review and asked for details about the problem. Within days they notified me they had found and fixed the bug. Just updated the app on my iPad and no more crashes!!! Changing my rating to 5 stars!!
....When reading long design dilemma threads, the app crashes, forcing me to locate the thread and start over. This happens on all really long threads with several hundred posts. Once the app starts crashing, the only way to read to the end is to switch to Safari.
Almost perfect 4/5
Great helpful app for having multiple tools and idea with ways to reach professionals to implement. My one drawback is no tab or easily searchable prompts for finding professionals that can remodel or build to ADA specs. Needing to adjust my parent’s home for disabilities and can’t find a professional proficient in the task.
The app shuts down on its own half way through a string of postings, and also when sweeping through pics in a story, what’s going on?
Love it but... 3/5
I love this app. Gives me so many great ideas. However recently, I noticed that if I am browsing through pictures and I click on the thumbnail to make the picture larger, after I exit the picture, it will take me all the way back to the beginning. So annoying! The app did not use to do this. Please fix. Thanks!
Why does it scroll to the top??? 3/5
I really enjoy the app and all of the ideas but it is really upsetting when I tap on a picture to look at an idea and then hit the back button it takes me back to the top so I have to scroll back down to where I was before. It is really frustrating and I wish they would fix this issue.
Keeps jumping to the top.. 1/5
Every time I am browsing for pictures and I click on one and then click to close the window The screen jumps to the very top of the search making me have to scroll through everything I’ve already viewed. This makes the app completely unusable. It doesn’t do this on the web browser version.
Crashes every time I try to take a pic 1/5
Wanted the app to picture what some new furniture pieces would look like with my existing living room. The app crashes every time I try to take a picture. I tried deleting and redownloading and it still crashes. Completely defeats the purpose of my download
When scrolling through and clicking on a photo when you go back to thumbnails it brings you back to the top and you lose your place and have to scroll all the way back down again.
This is not AR 2/5
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.
Great app, but updates have issues 2/5
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.
Amazing ❤️❤️❤️ but 4/5
By Iran 🗣🗣🗣
Its perfect i love it 😍😍😍😍😍
But i have a little issue with the version
When i tap and hold on the photo to see it, my app will just stop working and i have to reopen it ☹️☹️☹️
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.
iPhone X - issues 3/5
Please fix iPhone X, the photos are fully zoomed in as you scroll through making it impossible to browse through.
Needs work 1/5
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.
Great app but with a big problem 2/5
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.
Love the app, I especially love that you can view items in your space!
By Jaron A Mo
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..
Great, but one issue... 4/5
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.
Search issues need to be fixed 3/5
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.
Recent app change not a plus 3/5
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.
I used to love this app but not anymore 1/5
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.
No resolution for poor quality products 1/5
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!
Photo app suggestions 4/5
By Sam Anness
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
Good but Photos glitch 2/5
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.
It's a great app, but 3/5
When I first downloaded this app I had no idea what it was about. Now I've been playing with it I know you make a design for your dream house, then you buy the items for your house.
Photos kinda glitchy 4/5
Love the app but exiting out of a photo takes you to the very top and you have to scroll down again, which is VERY annoying. Aside from that, really good.
Lots to like here 3/5
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.
I love Houzz but now the app is broken 2/5
I use Houzz on my phone all the time, but the last time I logged in I realized something small but very important has changed. When you search for an idea and scroll through photos, then tap on a photo that looks interesting, then tap on the the arrow that takes you back to photos, it refreshes to the top of the page!! Seriously?!? Sometimes I look through photos for a long time, and now I have to scroll scroll scroll just to get back to where I was in the photos list, if I can even find it. Definitely hinders usability in a major way. Plz fix.
Design Inspiration Galore 5/5
I absolutely love this lifestyle app! It's such a handy tool for finding design inspiration through browsing thousands of beautiful photos uploaded by Architects, Interior Designers, Landscape Professionals, etc. What's even better is you can easily find and contact these type of Professionals in my local area to help on my upcoming home renovations. The app is also great for reading the newest stories about the top trends happening right now in the industry. I always like being in the know :)
By Bo Brown
I need instructions for creating a room🙁
Absolutely the worst online return process 1/5
I received wrong goods. Seems like this service is a pass through from sellers offloading their inventory. Trying to get correct item and after multiple emails Houzz trying to track down original seller. Don’t just stay away- run from Houzz.
Don't bother keeps crashing! 2/5
So much for using this app, I love getting every detail correctly and then next thing you know my hard work is erased while it crashes. Here I am taking my sweet time finding the perfect furniture piece to my layout and it just deletes everything. It doesn't automatically save your progress. And you have to keep reselecting the toolbars, and doesn't recognize past searches. Total garbage
A little tedious to navigate 3/5
The app has lots of great pictures to look at. However, when you enlarge a picture then go back to the list it starts you all over at the top of the list. It would be much better it the back button took you back to your previous place on the list view.
This can get to be very tedious once you have scrolled a few pages down the list.
Can’t even register without force close 1/5
Unusable app, tried to sign up and use app only to find I wasn’t able to complete sign up. Every time I tried to put my zip in the appropriate field it would force close. Attempted registration both on iPhone and iPad. Uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, still no luck.
New update is awful 1/5
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. Tip....never, ever, make photos smaller especially when you are using them for design guidance. What were you guys/gals thinking??
Don’t order through Houzz 1/5
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.
Very good app 5/5
Very good app
By Lucas Brundin
Best App ever. Great ideas
The app doesn’t authenticate me with my Google account 1/5
By Andre Noble
The title says it all. I sign into my Google account and nothing happens after that. The app is useless for me.
Tons of ideas 4/5
Loving this app! It has given me tons of ideas that I can't wait
WOVE IT 5/5
WOW, I love Decorating my home. I have friends who have asked me to come and decorate their homes. Now I tell them to download the Houzz app so that they can be creative and decorate their own home. This is a super great app and Many Super ideals! I love this app. It is truly amazing how you can transform a room to make it your dream home by looking at the multiple ideas Houzz app provides for you.
Houzzz ROCKS 5/5
Houzz is an amazing sight with so many wonderfully shared ideas.
Search filters don't work without crashing 1/5
There is no way to search accurately for a particular size bed. No matter how many times I try to search for a full size bed. It gives me king size. It also crashes a lot.
Handy app! 5/5
Easy to use. Nice place to organize design ideas. Also like the "where to buy" tags on images.
Searchable Photos Galore! 5/5
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.
Help with ideas 5/5
Like for looking and dreaming about improvements in our house.
We enjoy the thought provoking illustrations and ideas. Building a new home and the various tools offered by this app are very helpful. The helpful vendor information makes it a one stop shopping experience.
Three stars only but this is why... 3/5
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!
