Monmouth Beach Designer Wins Two Best Of Houzz Awards

MONMOUTH BEACH – Sheila Rich Interiors of Monmouth Beach was awarded “Best Of Houzz” in two categories by Houzz, the leading platform for home remodeling and design.

Sheila Rich was chosen by the more than 16 million monthly users that comprise the Houzz community.

The Best Of Houzz award is given in two categories: Customer Satisfaction and Design. Customer Satisfaction honors are determined by a variety of factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a professional received in 2013. Design award winners’ work was the most popular among the users on Houzz, who saved more than 230 million professional images of home interiors and exteriors to their personal ideabooks via the Houzz site, iPad/iPhone app and Android app.

Winners will receive a “Best Of Houzz 2014” badge on their profiles, showing the Houzz community their commitment to excellence.

“I’m honored to receive these two awards from Houzz,” Rich said. “Houzz is a vibrant online community where homeowners and professionals can interact directly – it’s a great way to connect. I truly enjoy helping homeowners with their design challenges.”

Liza Hausman, vice president of community for Houzz, said, “We’re delighted to recognize Sheila Rich Interiors among our ‘Best Of’ professionals for both customer satisfaction and design as judged by our community of homeowners and design enthusiasts who are actively remodeling and decorating their homes.”
