Houzz Inc., the leading platform for home remodeling and design, today introduced new 3D Floor Planner kitchen features for Houzz Pro, the all-in-one business management and marketing solution for residential construction and design professionals. The new features empower pros to quickly and easily communicate their vision for a kitchen project to current or prospective clients through 2D floor plans and 3D models that include cabinetry, appliances, islands, drawers, sinks and faucets. The new features also help pros showcase the value of making significant changes to a kitchen, such as moving a wall, adding an island or expanding cabinet space, so that clients can feel confident moving forward with the project.
“Kitchens command the highest spend and are one of the most consistently popular projects among homeowners. We’re seeing even more demand than usual as inquiries for kitchen remodels have doubled on Houzz compared to the same period last year,” said Alon Cohen, Houzz co-founder and president. “As pros manage an increasingly full project load, they shared that they needed an easy and efficient way to help their clients visualize their project and expedite the decision making process. Considering recent supply chain constraints on quartz countertops, cabinetry and other materials, we’re pleased that pros can use the Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner to align on important project decisions with their clients early in the process and order materials as soon as possible.”
When designing a kitchen using Houzz Pro’s 3D floor planner, pros can now choose from a wide selection of cabinet and drawer configurations, panel styles and finishes, as well as sink and faucet styles. They can include nuanced surface details from hardware materials and finishes to countertop styles and edges, offering a realistic look at the future space that can be presented in dollhouse and walkthrough views. The tool also includes appliances in a variety of sizes, such as refrigerators, dishwashers, cooktops, microwaves, ranges and hoods.
“Being able to show our clients a 3D floor plan of their project helps them to envision their life in the space which makes the entire process move forward more smoothly,” said Lindsay Floyd, designer and purchaser at kitchen and bath remodeling firm, Kimber Homes. “The Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner makes it easy to create multiple versions of a kitchen project with different layouts and details like gray shaker cabinets paired with granite countertops. Clients can see all of the possibilities for their kitchen and the varying costs of each, before making a decision. They feel like they know exactly what they’re getting.”
The new kitchen features build upon the robust 3D Floor Planner tool, which already enabled pros to select from an array of tile and wood flooring options and an extensive list of wall colors through Houzz's exclusive alliance with Benjamin Moore.
