This app is a spam don’t get it!!! 1/5
It is terrible I wanted an app to design a room and I soon as you put on your email it spams you with stuff don’t get it!!!!
Recent bug?? 3/5
I’ve loved my Houzz app for a few years now and have many different idea books. I just recently tried to open the app and nothing is working. No pictures will load and all my ideabooks are gone. I’ve tried update, deleting and reinstalling and nothing helped!
By Supreme Rootz
Every update makes it even better! Thank you and Continued Success!
Too bad I didn’t know about this four months ago... 5/5
Just got finished doing my house without this app. Might have been cheaper and easier with it.
Deleted right before signing on using Facebook. Why do you need my friend’s list to get me signed in?
BEST APP on my iPhone 5/5
I’ve remodeled & redecorated every room in my house using HOUZZ. I can be my own general contractor & designer! I have ordered many items as well & everything is impeccable quality.
It’s Good But... 3/5
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.
By Abuzaid91 alghamdi
They delivered my order to the wrong address and then refused to replace or refund me. Don’t order from them!!!!
Nice concept, execution needs work 2/5
It would really help if the app wouldn't crash every time I'm directed to it from one of their promotional emails. Just a touch frustrating. The previous two times this happened, I've just jumped to a competitor for my purchases. Lost opportunity for Houzz.
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.
A great resource undercut by terrible management 2/5
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.
Just awesome 😘 houzz 5/5
Houzz has helped to make life easier and beter for me Niño123¶89¶11
Blank White Screen ??????? 1/5
Clicked on to Houzz today to find a blank white screen. What's causing this now?
It’s a shopping app 1/5
This isn’t a room planning app, it’s a shopping app. I was looking for something to draw the floor plan and use to plan furnishing for our new home. This isn’t it, despite coming up on top of most searches for “best home planning app!” Deleted it already.
Refresh Issues 1/5
Love the app but it won’t refresh the feed unless you close and reopen it. Dragging it down to prompt the refresh doesn’t do anything, no matter how long it’s been open. Please fix, as this is a really annoying bug.
One of my top three apps & I forget what the other two are 5/5
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.
Nice App, impossible to close pictures 1/5
By Notorious TOG
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.
How fun- 5/5

Houzz app 2/5
By miz designer
Update is not working properly. At the moment it is not displaying. Blank screen.
I often need to go back to the email notice to access each magazine feature. A major flaw.
The content is very good, however the operation of the site is wanting.
Beyond Shades, Oak Brook Terrace, IL 5/5
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.
Not reliable 2/5
Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. I saved 32 photo ideas with captions. I can retrieve the captions but not the photo ideas. Useless.
Have to log in 1/5
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.
Go back to previous version 1/5
I don’t like the new version. Can’t browse like I used to. Can’t search by style.
Bring back the old home screen 3/5
By ca liz
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. :(
App no longer available for lower than iOS 10! 1/5
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?
No longer able to offline use ideabook 1/5
This app was great until I no longer am able to use my ideabook offline. Will update this back to 5star once this feature is back
Scammy app. Scammy company. Skip.
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?
They are pests 1/5
By New scrabble app
Too many emails. They make it impossible to disconnect
Can’t register 1/5
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.
Once loved this app and used it all the time. It is now worthless and advertises things not even applicable to ANYTHING in the photos. Such a shame because it once had so much potential.
For me, this app is perfect. To see a look I love, and be able to click and purchase a product is amazing! I’m in love.
Bad Quality 1/5
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 5/5
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.
Best turn around ever 5/5
By sueli ribas
I bought a trípode floor lamp. The box come completely destroyed. I called, sent pictures and they not only sent to me a new one but the time was unbelievable fast. What a team. Always going to buy from them.
By Mr. iCanFixThat
This app is great, i am in to real estate and staging a property is key to selling a property. This app has given me great ideas for staging my properties and putting the house into perspective before finalizing the finish product.
No longer a good app! 1/5
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.
I LOVE the app. We plan on building our house in about a yr or so. But some pictures are TOO extravagant.
Updates need better testing before deploying 1/5
The latest update causes the app to render a grey screen when I invoke the app on my iPad. I can no longer view content. Makes the app useless. Development team: This is not the way to retain customers. You need to test your changes before integrating them into the app!
This app has not been working lately. 1/5
By star 141721
So frustrating since I am in the middle of a new build and the app is useless.
By aunt meegie
I tried to post a review about a company and houzz won’t post it!-
Use but do not purchase 1/5
I love houzz platform and user experience for design and design ideas. The e-commerce side is badly run and has terrible control over the delivery of products and third party sellers!!! After needing to return a item that required delivery I have dealt with 5 separate customer care groups to organize a return and replacement. Lesson learned - purchasing elsewhere!
Love app -2 Stars only- Here’s why 2/5
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.
When it works... it’s great 2/5
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.
Great app but never loads effectively 2/5
I love all the great design ideas you get with this app, but it takes forever to load all the pics... I usually just give up waiting and close it out. Makes for a frustrating experience...

Love Houzz but... 3/5
By long beach laura
Love so many features but contractors and designers should be required to answer questions. So frustrating. And paint colors (not not Benjamin Moore guesses/ equivalents should be posted with the picture.
Bring back good pictures 3/5
I use Houzz for nice, beautiful ideas that look like show rooms. Letting random people post pictures has tarnished the quality of photos on Houzz. Please bring back the sort by popular pictures button and please only allow for professional, high quality photos and rooms to be shown. With these fixes the app will be back to a 5 star. Thank you.
