Helpful Online Tools to Get the Most Out of Your Kitchen Remodel

There are several tools available to assist you in planning for your kitchen remodel.  With websites like you can visually plan you kitchen electronically.  You could sit at home and cut ideas out of magazines if you want, but with these websites you’re pretty much doing the same thing except much much faster and with an unlimited amount of browsing material.

How Can Help Plan My Kitchen Remodel? has become a leading website in the remodeling world.  It makes it much easier for consumers to find exactly what they are looking for and fast.  You can create ideabooks to save the images you find and like.  You can search the website for pretty much any home remodeling idea you are considering.  Want to browse different backsplash ideas for your kitchen?  Great!  Type in kitchen backsplash in the search bar and wah-la!  You have almost half a million kitchen backsplashes to browse through.  You can then add the photos that you like to your Kitchen Ideabook.  This lets you come back to them time and time again to show your contractor exactly what you are looking for.  Houzz is a great tool to get homeowners thinking outside the box, but it’s also great for the homeowners to communicate exactly what they are looking for to their kitchen remodeler.  MOSS uses Houzz on a regular basis and we share many of our project photos.  Check out some of our photos such as this kitchen remodel in Vienna, VA.

Interact With Kitchen Professionals

Houzz also allows you to interact with the professionals.  See something that you like and have a question?  No problem, you can post a question on that photo and the professional who did the work will be notified of your question.  We regularly receive questions on our photos and answer them to the best of our ability.  This photo of a kitchen remodel in McLean, VA had a great question about the paint color of the kitchen cabinets.  All photos on Houzz lets you include product tags.  So if you see a product that you are familiar with, let’s say a lighting fixture, you can tag that item as the product and its standard price.  You can also browse photos and see products that have been tagged by others.

Houzz is a great tool if you are considering remodeling your kitchen.  You can get some great ideas from what color to paint your kitchen to what kind of floor plan you like, and much more.  It allows you to save the ideas that you like, interact with professionals who did the work you like by asking questions or starting discussions, and even provides information on products that you may like.
