3 Websites To Inspire Your Home Remodel and Renovation Plans

Posted by Scott Maizlish on Friday, July 20th, 2012 at 8:42pm.

Many homes on the Park City real estate market are turn-key and move-in ready. However, some of the most incredible deals available need just a little TLC and renovation.

Have no fear! Gone are the days of scrolling through the pages of Better Homes and Garden to inspire remodel ideas. Several cool websites have popped up in the past year. A few of the best are:

1. HOUZZ – One of the most popular home remodel and design platforms to hit the web, Houzz has connected millions of homeowners, buyers, renovators and designers nationally and globally.

The true benefit of this site over the competition is its versatility. If you’re looking to upgrade a living room or kitchen, you can search ideas by space. On the other hand, if it’s just the fireplace you’d like to rebuild, you can also search by specific item.

Another fabulous feature to this site is the product page. By listing hundreds of products, Houzz acts as a virtual catalog, including pricing and links to the businesses that inspire the website’s content.

Check out the Houzz website for weekly ideas and if you have an iPad or iPhone – check out the Houzz App available in iTunes.

2. PINTEREST – Most of us think of the new social media phenomenon Pinterest as a virtual wish list but that’s not all it is. Pinterest is a fantastic source of photographs to inspire a new project.

 

Instead of just re-pinning ideas and liking them on Facebook, click directly on the image. Many are from unique designers and retailers such as:

3. HGTV Remodels – Hear HGTV and Park City folks likely think of the newly constructed HGTV Dream Home in Midway. It’s true HGTV has an interesting line up of real estate and home renovation TV Shows, but HGTVremodels.com tops the television.

 

The HGTVremodels website is focused on the visual aspect of renovation ideas. Additionally, the site is full of extensive galleries, top trends and cutting edge home technologies like Solar Power, HVAC Systems, water conservation and window replacement.

If you are in the market for a renovation project – allow me to suggest some properties that are wonderful investments which would turn into your personal dream home with just a bit of care. Call me at 435-901-4309 to get started.

Make it a great day!
