In recent months there has been a new movement in the world of user-based design and construction portals. Through the mist has come a new face to the scene, offering a much needed new approach to users and professionals in the field alike. Its name: homify.
Homify is a Berlin based international company, made up of a young and dynamic team, that connect architects, interior designers, builders, landscape gardeners and construction experts with design addicts across europe; providing them with inspiration, ideas and tips for their homes.
The aim of the online portal is given in the name – home + modify = homify – and gives users ideas on everything from flooring and furniture to gardens and gables. Homify has thousands of construction and design professionals, from all across Europe, who post their projects on the website; allowing users all over the world to look at and admire their work – they can even use pictures of their work in their own personal ‘ideabooks’, to give other users ideas too.
One of the most distinctive features, of the portal, is its international presence. The pages and projects are a mixture of galleries and images from all over Europe: offering users a really broad selection of design and construction examples; providing inspiration from all over and not necessarily just from their own county.
Users can also contact professionals directly if they are interested in hiring them
The portal is completely free to both professionals and users. Signing up only takes a few click and you’re ready to get started. Browse thousands of pictures in stunning quality and compile them into an ‘ideabook’ of your own or upload your own projects as a professional.
But that’s not all, homify’s editorial department write daily articles on the project of professionals, home ideas, design tips and quite a lot more, whilst posting them on social media regularly. The editorial department aims to create an online community of design and construction fanatics that actively share their ideas with one another – and with so many out there, what’s not to like!
