February 3, 2014. (Golden, Colo.)—HomeAdvisor today released DesignMine app, an inspiration and collaboration design tool for homeowners to create and share personalized design boards. DesignMine is part of HomeAdvisor’s suite of products and is a free tool currently available online and for iPad users. HomeAdvisor is a leading website and mobile app provider offering resources for home repair, maintenance, and improvement projects.
“DesignMine is a unique tool that gives users a platform previously only used by interior designers,” said HomeAdvisor’s CEO Chris Terrill. “This resource is part of a suite of products from HomeAdvisor that helps homeowners plan, budget for and build their dream home.”
Homeowners can create a design board by browsing through DesignMine’s thousands of high-quality images of spaces including kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor and living areas. Homeowners can then collaborate with friends, family and design professionals by easily sharing their boards. When the homeowner is ready to bring their vision to life they can be matched with a building and design professional in HomeAdvisor’s network. All HomeAdvisor service professionals undergo a criminal and financial background check before joining HomeAdvisor’s recommended contractors list.
“DesignMine allows homeowners and professionals to share ideas through the design boards,” said DesignMine’s Chief Designer Alison Victoria. “This collaboration can help the project seamlessly transition from design to reality.”
