Homehound launches “Home Style”

Today, Homehound launched “Home Style” which is an interactive gallery displaying images of ideas for home renovations. They have 10,000 + photographs which they believe will provide inspiration for key room makeovers and renovations within the home.

James Hannan, General Manager of Independent Digital Media says:

Home Style’s galleries of interiors and exteriors will help users decide what to do next with their homes. “Home Style is a fantastic new offering from Homehound, created to assist with generating ideas for designing the dream home on any budget.”

“It offers home hunters the opportunity to visualise what they might do when it comes to decorating, updating or renovating the home they’re about to purchase. This new section will inspire our audience and help drive engagement throughout our site. The increased engagement we will add value for our member agents – keeping our audience on the site longer, looking at more pages and in turn more properties.”

I found the “Home Style” section very visually appealing and the search functionality is also quite interactive. What they have done is tag each image with a number of search variables which allow you to select tags/criteria and the results will filter out images which are not within your criteria.

If you were looking to complete a renovation or makeover, then I think you would certainly spend some time drawing inspiration from this section of Homehound.

    Its certainly a mammoth amount of content for them to add.

    You can come up with some pretty odd combinations. Stainless steel in the bedroom.

    It is great that homehound is launching home style so that it can became more popular. It is one of Australia’s largest real estate portals. I came to hear that Home Style will also provide users with the ability to save ideas with a scrapbooking tool, keeping them on hand to show builders, retailers, architects & designers.
