Inspiration -

"It took nearly six hours to go through all of the "little" changes"

I blame I have lost count of the number of hours days that I have spent browsing their website.

Our friends and family have given us a lot of advice. Generally, this advice was standard and easy to accommodate: "put your power points on internal walls", "if you are installing down lights, get the builder to install junction boxes so that you don't have to patch your ceiling", etc.

It was our friend Hewie, who managed to cause the sleepless nights: "Whatever you do, get the bathroom right. It’s very expensive to change if you decide you don’t like it".

Did you know that Houzz's bathroom photo section has approximately 2050 images? Lucky for us, one image solved all of our problems (I will blog about this separately).

Bathroom images are just the tip of the iceberg that is Houzz. There are sections for bathrooms, bedrooms, closets, dining rooms, entry halls, kitchens, landscapes, laundries, media/theatres, patios, pools, etc.

Once you have gotten past the photo section, there is the "Idea Book" section. Idea Books are a collection of images and text that you create using images from the photo section.

Some of the Idea Books created by other members are simply stunning, especially those advertised on the Houzz main page. For example, 15 Ways a Mirror Can Light Up Your Morning, which shows how you can use different types of mirrors to create different looks in your bathroom.

I love Houzz, I really do. No matter how big, or small, your project, I am sure you will find inspiration, even if it is just to answer the question of whether you want a light coloured floor in the main area, or a dark one.
