Houzz recently announced Site Designer, which gives any service provider with a profile on Houzz the opportunity to build a business website at no charge. The site can be a Houzz sub-domain or have its own domain name. Either way, there is no other Houzz branding on the provider’s new site.  It wouldn’t surprise us at all if somewhere down the line this became solely available to Premium (paid) Houzz profilers, or became available for an a-la-carte-fee. For now at least, it’s free.

Site Designer lets the tradespeople pull in their Houzz reviews and photos to their new websites, too. TechCrunch has much more about the launch.

Also notable is the Houzz Marketplace, via the home-page Products tab. Here homeowners can purchase the items that ended up on their wish list thanks to Houzz-induced home-design ideas.  Searches can be filtered by room, style and price range. Many can be purchased direct from the site.

Houzz is  covering at least a couple of bases other service-directory sites have missed.
