Where Should I Put My Badge?
The header or footer of your website homepage is an ideal spot to place your badge. Making the badge easy to find opens the door to visitors who can then click on it to navigate to your professional profile on Houzz. For new visitors unfamiliar with Houzz, showing your connection lends extra credibility and provides access to your latest projects and client reviews.

What are the Rules for Using a Badge?
Using the authentic design and colors of the badge tells everyone that it is the real thing. Here’s ways to assure that your badge delivers the most impact:
- Keep it Authentic Since Houzz badges are highly recognizable by homeowners, design enthusiasts and renovation professionals, there is no need to style your own Houzz badge or to alter it in any way. Let it shine!
- Skip Extra Endorsements Whether you are highlighting a Best of Houzz badge or your latest milestone, each type of badge speaks for itself. Avoid language such as “in partnership with Houzz”, “recommended by Houzz” or “sponsored by Houzz”.
- Test Badge Links Website visitors who reach a dead end are likely to be disappointed and move on. Just as you measure twice and cut once, double check that the Houzz badges on your website successfully link to your Houzz profile.
Besides putting them on their websites, home design, remodeling and build professionals also display their coveted badges on their blogs and Houzz Pro Premium Profile. We are happy to see our pros display their Houzz badges proudly. It is an ideal way to stand out from your competitors and to connect with clients old and new.
