A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.

App Reviews

  • Terrible service, no longer trust their reviews

    By AdZoot
    We were huge fans of Houzz and used them when designing our house but we have since lost all trust and appreciation for Houzz after trying for months to get a negative review posted (about our builder, who currently has a Houzz award showing on their business page) and running into an endless cycle of our review being refused, inquiries to their support system (which is only via their site), trying to talk to someone to find out where we were violating the review policy and getting endless generic answers in response then rewriting it again only to start the cycle all over. We’ve decided at this point they are blocking us from posting a negative review and now we no longer trust any of the reviews on their site. Beware if you are reading stellar reviews about a company on their site you might only be seeing a filtered list of the actual feedback with negative reviews never being successfully posted. I hope this isn’t true and they redeem themselves but after so much time, so many support tickets and even just now getting hung up on twice when calling their only published number, it sure seems international.
  • Beyond Shades, Oak Brook Terrace, IL

    By BR1945
    We recently remodeled our summer cottage and I went to Beyond Shades looking for window treatment ideas. I ended up placing an order for all the windows - 19 woven wood shades and 5 wood blinds. Rose, the salesperson/ consultant who helped me was incredibly patient and helpful. She drove the hour and a half drive to the cottage to do preliminary measurements and make the final selections. After the installation she returned to make sure everything was perfect. The factory had incorrectly fabricated three of the shades. She immediately made arrangements for their replacement. The new shades are now in place and I couldn’t be more pleased. The installers employed by Beyond shades were professional, speedy and courteous. All in all, working with Beyond Shades was a pleasure.
  • Three stars only but this is why...

    By kikalulu
    I like this app a lot, I use it all of the time. My only wish would be that the editors or whomever is in charge, would ask the architects and designers that if they are going to post photos of their work, they MUST answer questions when people ask! Some of them do, but many others don't and that is frustrating. Feels like they are using the app to advertize their work and not to showcase and share ideas and resources, which is supposed to be one of the reasons why this app is so unique and wonderful. Also, please don't let amateurs post bad photos of their half way done work, where they not only present a dark badly taken photo but they don't even show a before and after. My two cents!
  • Love app -2 Stars only- Here’s why

    By Halotuc
    I’m currently building a house and Houzz has been super helpful during this process. However, every 2 or 3 days, the screen goes white and stays that way, until I delete the app and then download it again. It’s super annoying when I’m at a meeting with builders and can’t pull up the information I need. After several attempts at ordering 4 light fixtures through the app, I gave up and bought them from somewhere else. Houzz is such a great resource. I hope this problem gets resolved, because at least in my case, they lost potential business in the retail aspect of their app. Until then I will just keep deleting and re-downloading the app to get to my Ideabooks and their awesome photos, but making my purchases through sites that won’t crash on me.
  • Great app, but updates have issues

    By intensifi
    I’ve relied heavily on this app for inspiration for our remodel. However, recently the app has started behaving badly. When searching for a feature (say wainscoting), then trying to filter for the room, style, etc., the app forgets about the feature I’m searching for. It just shows all the rooms that meet the filter criteria. Also, when reviewing photos in search results, if I select to learn more about a photo, then close the photo details when I’m done, the app returns to the top of the search results, rather than the last photo viewed. If The search results have a few hundred photos, it’s extremely time consuming to try to figure out where I was. These bugs make the app significantly less useful. I’m starting to look for a replacement.
  • Expensive, Ridiculous Game with Poor Taste

    By Katrod1
    I like the app but Players do not follow guidelines or rewards those who do. Players who decorate with rustic, contemporary, modern etc items are not voted by other players as doing a good job while other players who do as they please are selected as an excellent design. Players rarely vote for rooms using colors tend to reward all black/white rooms. In order to garner enough votes to win a prize you have to buy expensive items to decorate your room. The game has charged me for expensive items and then not given them to me. Had to write the game to be reimbursed. Although I was reimbursed, it made me wonder how many problems I may have missed with a large inventory of decorative items. Many of their designs seem to only be geared to use up as much expensive inventory as possible such as holiday items, art, rugs etc.
  • Great app but updates not always for the best

    By DebfromNoank
    I love many features of this app, but recent updates seem to have removed some of its most useful features. I use Houzz Ideabooks as a tool to help with remodeling and design ideas. The original app for years allowed the user to move photos around within each Ideabook, allowing one to compare a subset of ideas (e.g., compare bathtubs in an Ideabook on bathrooms) but that ability suddenly has vanished without warning, as has the ability to move from one Ideabook to another. This greatly diminishes the app’s usefulness. Help! Freezing the contents and placement of photos in Ideabooks is not a good idea. Thank you!
  • Frequent crashes BUG FIXED!!!

    By Patti9999
    UPDATE: Support immediately contacted me after I posted my negative review and asked for details about the problem. Within days they notified me they had found and fixed the bug. Just updated the app on my iPad and no more crashes!!! Changing my rating to 5 stars!! ....When reading long design dilemma threads, the app crashes, forcing me to locate the thread and start over. This happens on all really long threads with several hundred posts. Once the app starts crashing, the only way to read to the end is to switch to Safari. .
  • New update is awful

    By bblluu
    App crashes when trying to rearrange photos within an Idea Book. Why oh why did you change the size of the news feed photos to be so tiny??? As an example, when taping on “Latest in Discussions” and then viewing the “design dilemma” discussion, the pictures used to be on the left and were large and easily identifiable. Now they are tiny thumbnails off to the right. Remember, the Houzz app is a completely VISUAL tool. It is a complete fail to make the photos in the feed so small....it totally takes away from what used to be a great experience. Tip....never, ever, make photos smaller especially when you are using them for design guidance. What were you guys/gals thinking??
  • Design Inspiration Galore

    By Sheadesigns
    I absolutely love this lifestyle app! It's such a handy tool for finding design inspiration through browsing thousands of beautiful photos uploaded by Architects, Interior Designers, Landscape Professionals, etc. What's even better is you can easily find and contact these type of Professionals in my local area to help on my upcoming home renovations. The app is also great for reading the newest stories about the top trends happening right now in the industry. I always like being in the know :)
