Creating a new site worthy of the Remodelista and Gardenista name.
The birth of social media and photography sharing platforms has established a whole new chapter to the role of interior design blogs and influencers around the world.
Now, people seek inspiration for beautiful spaces and design trends online to help transform and build stunning interiors.
To align the new websites with strategic growth and give the Remodelista and Gardenista teams a platform to be proud of, we simplified the design while implementing a number of key features to streamline the user experience journey.
Users can now enjoy a site design that does the Remodelista and Gardenista team’s interior design know-how justice. We’ve added simple navigation, intelligent search, and seamless integration of featured products throughout the site, meaning that the millions of visitors visiting the sites each month can focus their efforts on planning and executing their dream home or garden remodel. Members can also now easily access a directory of the best designers and architects around the world to help make their interior design or landscaping dream a reality.
Key features for the end user
Boasting over 10,000 fascinating posts, thousands of informative remodeling and gardening 101 guides, featured product shopping, house tours, and expert guides to name a few, it was essential to include seamless and swift navigation around and between the Remodelista and Gardenista sites.
The new design features a search overlay for responsive results within the area the user is currently in order to avoid clutter. We also introduced integrated product links which enables a user to simply click an item from a post or photograph and be taken straight to the product link.
Effortless content curation for editors
Built on a WordPress multisite foundation, we’ve ensured that the many talented and prolific editors and contributors that create and curate Remodelista and Gardenista’s enviable amount of content can continue to do so with as few impediments as possible.
Posts, changes, and updates can be rolled out across multiple areas of the sites, and an overhauled admin panel has introduced additional columns, filters, and other features to make life as easy as possible. Meanwhile, the design, architecture, and landscape firms that makeup Remodelista and Gardenista’s impressive design directory can edit and update their pages themselves before submitting them for approval.
An innovative guide to noteworthy home design stores and top choices for hotels, restaurants and other design-oriented sights around the world, the design travel feature allows users to find what they are looking for by location. An interactive map allows the user to select by cities, and narrow search results down by a specific location and view articles relevant to the chosen place.
In addition, the Find a Firm functionality gives users the ability to identify useful stores or design agencies nearby with curated travel guides and a travel map feature.
