Top 10 interior design blogs by Plantation Shutters

I usually visit these blogs for inspiration and believe they are worth checking out whether you are in this sector or not because they always offer great tips and beautiful design ideas in general. Here is my "randomly organised" top 10 selection:

It comprises of fantastic images and articles which are categorised by colour and type i.e. floorboards, hallways and shelves all in the usual easy-to-read blog format which all ties in together.

Visit the section Decor Styles if you're in need of inspiration.


Founders Adi and Alon said they created Houzz while on a quest to redesign their home. They found it quite hard to find all the professionals they needed as there wasn't a website with everybody in one place. They describe Houzz as a place for homeowners to find the right companies and professionals for their projects. It has now over 40 millions users worldwide including homeowners and relevant industry professionals.
