Dulux Trade colours now on Houzz
Houzz the home renovation and design platform, has announced a collaboration with Dulux Trade to embed its colour portfolio in new visualisation tools within its Houzz Pro design aid and design professionals. Dulux Trade will provide paint colours for the Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner and Mood Board tools.
The Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner allows pros to create accurate 3D interior schematics which 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 a project’s look and feel through products, colours 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 where pros source products. Product images within each mood board can be edited, including removing backgrounds, layering products on top of each other, and presenting the room with a 3D perspective to offer a comprehensive look at the space. Floor plans made with the Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner can be added to any mood board and will automatically update in the mood board when they are edited in the Floor Planner tool.
To address the need for accurate colours in 3D models and mood boards, Houzz Pro enables professionals to choose from thousands of Dulux Trade colours to customise 3D model walls and place paint swatches in a mood board. Once a 3D floor plan or mood board is approved, the pro can easily click on the paint swatch to order the exact paint colour from the Dulux Trade website or a decorator merchant stockist nationwide.
“We are so pleased to be collaborating with Houzz Pro on their new visualisation tools,” said Karen Wilkinson, Dulux Trade Lead. “It’s so important for professionals to have every tool at their disposal to ensure a smooth design process for their clients, and colour selection is a key place where homeowners and professionals can really benefit from being able to visualise the end result. By embedding our extensive colour range, designers will be able to bring their customers along on the journey, and really bring their projects to life.”
