Collaborative design tool Sketch, which links home pros and clients on design projects, is now available on the web. The tool can create moodboards, floor plans and idea books; source photos from Houzz's inventory, throughout the web or clients' own images; and keep track of shopping list products, among other functions. Previously available as an app, the tool is now available on the web as well as a cost-free tool.

The tool was previously available only on the Houzz app. Since the tool was introduced, homeowners and home pros have created more than 1.5 million sketches.
