Online platform for home renovation and design Houzz has announced the launch of the Houzz Shop, its home products marketplace, in the UK.
The Houzz Shop offers UK homeowners, design enthusiasts and home professionals more than 100,000 products and materials from over 2500 sellers from across Europe.
“Since day one, we have been focused on creating the single best home renovation and design experience by bringing everything people need to improve their homes together under one roof,” says Houzz co-founder and CEO Adi Tatarko. “We’re delighted to bring the Houzz Shop to the UK so that people can discover, learn about, and now buy all the products and materials to complete their home projects directly on Houzz.”
Houzz is also introducing its View in My Room tool within its app for iPhone, iPad and Android, which allows users to see any product from the Houzz Shop in their rooms in augmented-reality (AR) mode, so they can see how products look in their own homes before buying. View in My Room is an extension of Sketch, a feature within the Houzz app that gives people the power to experiment with home decor options by adding products from the Houzz Shop to any photo.
Houzz introduced its home products marketplace in the US in October 2014, Its UK community has grown to more than two million monthly unique users and over 65,000 active home renovation and design professionals in more than 65 trades, such as architects, interior designers and home builders.
