Possibilities are endless! 5/5
By Coffin fan
Excellent photos generate a myriad of ideas!
I use this app for so many situations. Color schemes, room layouts, accessories, trim, flooring, just about anything. Really love the feature to create folders and add comments. So convenient to show others what I found.
Great app 5/5
This is my go place for design ideas and discussions

Truly helped me make decisions for my new living room.

I use this app all the time and have gathered many fabulous ideas for our new home.
Not working 1/5
By Taino Casique
It’s not loading after the latest “update”
Bombards you with emails 1/5
By BuckFama WDE
I regret getting the app and getting an account. I can’t stop the emails no matter how many times I unsubscribe. The more times I unsubscribe the more emails I get. I have them all going to my junk folder now. Hopefully after not opening the app or going to the website for a while (forever) maybe eventually the emails will stop.
3D view keeps crashing 1/5
By Don't like debt
I love the idea but I need it to work.
You’ll never get it off your phone 1/5
After being bombarded with emails, I’ve removed the app, but still get emails. I have tried to “unsubscribe” multiple times to no avail. I’ve even marked it as spam, but somehow the daily junk continues to come through. Don’t download unless you have nothing to do, but read email after email after email....
By So Joe
I am not able to sign in to my existing account to use the app. I try to use “sign in with Google” and switch over to the Google app to approve the sign in. Google says “sign in approved” but when I switch back to the Houzz app I just get the three flashing progress dots. Forever. I’ve tried again countless times over weeks but it doesn’t work. I’ll delete the app now.
Not quite a fan of Blanco sinks 1/5
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 crack 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 crack 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?
Designs overload 5/5
This app is absolutely the best! I love the fact you can take pictures to actually see how things will look in your home.
Great customer service 5/5
I had an issue with a product that I bought, completely unrelated to Houzz (faulty manufacturing by the maker). Houzz was really prompt and helped me out immediately. Great team
Wonderful ideas 5/5
I am in the interior decorating field and find "Houzz" to be a wealth of ideas and information. Just purchased bar stools through the app and was happy with the process.
By RECOLOR HATER
This is the best app ever. I totally recommend it ❤️! I would give it 10 stars bravo!
No support for Thermador appliances????? 1/5
Seriously? Why is this brand not listed in this app?
Ughhhh hate this app 1/5
It sends notifications every second! It is so irritating!😡😡😡
Stop with the emails! 1/5
By Glen Parkes
I didn’t like the app so much, so I deleted it. Then, as I had to sign up using my email, I keep getting unsolicited emails. I unsubscribe, but it keeps sending me different ‘types’ of emails. So far I have unsubscribed to 4 types of emails from Houzz. Stop, please stop.
HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE 1/5
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!
Needs work 3/5
By Marin Princess
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.
Lost all my bookmarks 1/5
Latest update eliminated all my bookmarks. Supposedly now in ideabooks....not there. Gone completely.
Wellspring of ideas 5/5
Trying to figure out how something will look? Houzz makes it easy. Scroll through hundreds of ideas quickly. Love the material sourcing feature.
Expensive, Ridiculous Game with Poor Taste 1/5
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.
Great app! 4/5
I love this app. Lots of great ideas and options to buy.
By Oriental Designer Rugs
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
