Houzz Pro and Benjamin Moore announced a partnership on Tuesday to integrate Benjamin Moore’s paint colors into the software’s visualization tools.
Houzz Pro is a marketing, project management and client management tool for professionals in the residential construction industry, including builders, designers, architects and remodelers.
Professionals who use the Houzz Pro 3D Floor Planner and Mood Board tools will be able to show their clients visualizations of their home with the selected interior colors. The Floor Planner tool also allows designers and remodelers to show customized flooring selections, windows and doors, and furniture. The Mood Board tool allows professionals to create customized presentations for clients that pull elements from the Floor Planner. Updates made in the planner are automatically made in the mood board.
