Dulux Trade colours now on Houzz
Houzz, the home renovation and design platform, has announced a collaboration with Dulux Trade to embed its color portfolio into new visualization tools within its Houzz Pro design assistance and design professionals. Dulux Trade will provide color colors for the Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner and Mood Board tools.
The Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner enables professionals to create accurate 3D interior views that can be presented in walkthrough or dollhouse views to give clients a realistic preview of the finished project.
Houzz Pro Mood Boards are now available for designers and other professionals to showcase the look of a project through products, colors and inspiration photos. Products can be uploaded from a computer or added through the Houzz Pro Product Clipper, which captures and stores product images and information from any website that professionals source products from. Product images within each mood board can be edited, including removing backgrounds, superimposing products, and presenting the room with a 3D perspective to give a comprehensive view of the room. Floor plans created with the Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner can be added to any mood board and are automatically updated in the mood board when edited in the Floor Planner tool.
To meet the need for accurate colors in 3D models and mood boards, Houzz Pro allows professionals to choose from thousands of Dulux Trade colors to customize 3D model walls and place color samples on a mood board. Once a 3D floor plan or mood board has been approved, the professional can simply click on the color swatch to order the exact paint color from the Dulux Trade website or a national decorator dealer.
“We are very excited to be working with Houzz Pro on their new visualization tools,” said Karen Wilkinson, Dulux Trade Lead. “It is so important for professionals to have every tool available to ensure a smooth design process for their clients, and color selection is an important place where homeowners and professionals can really benefit from visualizing the end result. By embedding our extensive color palette, designers can take their clients on the journey and really bring their projects to life. ”
