Home Design Ideas
Zillow recently launched its new service, Zillow Digs, a source for home design and home improvement ideas. Taking a look through the visually focused site, I have to say I was impressed by the mass of activity they’ve already gathered in a short amount of time. The site borrows heavily from Pinterest – see something you like and add (pin, as they say) it to your board, a place where you can collect ideas for your dream home.
Home improvement includes many things, like Vinyl Siding in Augusta GA. Like many new sites and services, there is a social aspect to the site, which lets you share items with your friends and email cool things you find to them as well. Clicking on a photo brings up a detail page where you can leave comments and see the Zillow estimates on what it would cost to build the room for yourself. Much like Zillow Zestimates, these construction cost estimates are based on a Zillow algorithm that Zillow advises should be used as a starting point only.
Zillow Digs also allows you to sort images and projects by tags and various categories such as room and style.
Overall, I like the look and feel of Zillow Digs and I can definitely see people flocking to this link as a more home-specific Pinterest-like service. Have you tried it out? What did you think?
