If you go to the "about Us" section at Houzz it says the following:

"With the largest residential design database in the world and a vibrant community powered by social tools, Houzz is the easiest way for people to get the design inspiration, project advice, product information and professional reviews they need to help turn ideas into reality."

So you are saying that you want to get the exposure that Houzz offers, but not put anything into to "pay it forward". It has to go both ways. If you are too busy as a designer then do not post your photos on house.

I recently searched for a designer in my geographic area. It ended up being about a $100K project for furniture, tile, bath fixtures & design fees. My main criteria while searching on Houzz was that the designer/firm was active in answering questions. It was important that the designer was a participant on this site and not just a freeloader.

If questions are a nuisance then do not post your name & projects on an internet forum. Very simple.

I think Cynthia did a very good job of explaining why every question cannot possibly be answered on Houzz. I do agree that designers and other professionals should do their best to be of service to the Houzz community and help when possible. It's isn't just an advertising forum and if a designer posts a picture of a clients work, the it is it public domain. originality being the actuall selling point. In other words, if your clients don't want their ORIGINAL ideas reproduced ( original meaning the client came up with it and did not purchase any of the product from a third party) then don't post it. Otherwise, is it fair to a manufacturer of a product not to get any business because someone else claims it to be theirs? However, some people post questions non stop, little things, constantly. For the professionals out there, I can tell you this, we recently started a pool project and I posted some questions to MacLaughlin group out of Orange Ocunty. they do beautiful work and were so gracious with their responses that I have now referred them to three other friends for quotes, even though we are not using them ( It was too late, we had already hired another company)
I like using the companies that help the general public.

The lanai flooring is a honed shell stone from Mexico. Stays cool and is non-skid.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to How to Mix Furniture Styles on the Patio
Create boundaries with an area rug. Rather than unifying the open space, section off the eating area from the sitting area through use of a right-sized area rug.
All-weather wicker furniture that can withstand the wet and dry seasons is a popular choice for plantation and tropical cottage lanais. This set from Crate and Barrel's Ventura line is UV resistant and has a rustproof aluminum frame and cushions that resist mildew and fading.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Blow Past the Heat With an Outdoor Ceiling Fan
Ceiling fans create circulation, making the porch feel up to 8 degrees cooler. The drop in temperature makes outdoor lounging much more enjoyable in the summer.
