Design product suppliers and building material manufacturers are successfully using the platform to connect with B2B buyers and influencers.

ZingyHomes also makes it easy to shortlist the interior/architectural products design professionals may want to use in their project. It has created a one-stop product sourcing guide for a) luxury products b) general interior products c) building materials and allows one to see the closest sourcing location of each product, request call back or buy it directly from the site.

From an end user perspective, ZingyHomes offers a large collection of design ideas specific to the “Asian context”. The design photos are not just limited to interiors but offer several ideas for exterior (elevation) design, landscapes, outdoors. Users have the option to contact the original designer for consultation for their own project if they like a particular design.

The ZingBoards on the site work as scrapbooks enabling users to shortlist/bookmark professionals, design ideas, products they like into folders like “My Living Room”, “My Balcony”, “My Bedroom”. They can add their comments to each item and share the ZingBoard exclusively with their family members & designer to contribute to.

The site has a Pro’s corner which is used by professionals for sharing case studies, industry news. Its magazine section offers tons of tips and trends articles for homeowners looking to design their spaces themselves.

The Events section keeps both industry professionals and end users updated about exhibitions, seminars, walks, meetups happening in their city. To bridge the gap between homeowners’ expectations and that of design professionals and to reduce conflicts that have become a part and parcel of design & construction projects, ZingyHomes also organizes informal meetups which help each party understand the other’s viewpoint.
