PALO ALTO, CA — Houzz Inc., the Palo Alto, CA-based online platform for home renovation and design, has announced the Houzz community’s picks for “Best Of Houzz 2021,” a homeowner guide to leading kitchen and bath remodelers, architects, interior designers, landscape pros and other residential design and remodeling professionals on the Houzz platform.
“The ‘Best Of Houzz’ awards are an emblem of trust and credibility for home professionals across the U.S. and around the world, and we’re excited to celebrate this year’s winners,” said Liza Hausman, v.p./industry marketing for Houzz. “The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted our critical need as homeowners to feel comfortable before inviting pros into and around our homes, and the ‘Best Of Houzz’ badge is a powerful way to communicate the trust that homeowners have in a pro’s business.”
“Best Of Houzz” is awarded annually in three categories: Design, Customer Service and Photography. Design awards honor professionals whose work was the most popular among the Houzz community. Customer Service honors are based on several factors, including a professional’s overall rating on Houzz and client reviews for projects completed in 2020. Photography badges are awarded to architecture and interior design photographers whose images were most popular.
A “Best Of Houzz 2021” badge, specifying the category won, appears on winners’ profiles, Houzz said, adding that the award recognizes some 3% of the more than 2.5 million active home professionals and interior and architectural photographers on the Houzz platform.
