Over 400,000 active home professionals, from architects, interior designers, design-build firms to landscape designers and much more, use Houzz as a critical business tool to build brand awareness, showcase projects, connect with homeowners, and move project management to the cloud. Houzz hopes to expand its success within the UK as it extends and grows its UK content and user base over the coming months and years.

Houzz is free, easy to use and mobile, removing the barriers between those looking to redesign their home and the professionals who can help them do so.

Houzz has established a London-based team, led by UK Managing Director Vivienne Sung, that is focused on helping both professionals and homeowners get the most from the new UK platform.

Wife and husband team Adi Tatarko and Alon Cohen started Houzz in 2009 in response to their personal frustration with the lack of resources and inspiration available for renovating their own home.
