Houzz has grown in popularity in recent years for both homeowners and remodelers. We've heard that some remodelers ask that clients create a profile and tag certain design elements they like before the remodeler begins designing the plans so they have a better grasp of the preferred style. On Wednesday, Houzz rolled out an update for its website and apps making finding products that match the clients style easier. The new "Visual Match" scans photos of completed projects and then searches a database of products to find the same, or similar matches. Houzz also offers the option to purchase that product through its own online store.

Remodelers that use Houzz, will this make your life easier when a customer comes in with a specific picture that they want to match? Let us know in the comments below, and click on the link below to read the full announcement of the new feature over at the Houzz Blog.
