Modern Unique Developments awarded Best of Houzz 2017

Knutsford, UK, February 27, 2017 – Cheshire homebuilders Modern Unique Developments (MUD) has won “Best Of Design” on Houzz®, the leading platform for home renovation and design. The company, which has already reached the finals of regional Building Excellence awards every year since it was founded, was chosen by the more than 40 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community from among more than one million active home building, home improvement and design industry professionals.

The Best Of Houzz is awarded annually in three categories: Design, Customer Service and Photography. Design award winners’ work was the most popular among the more than 40 million monthly users on Houzz. Customer Service honours are based on several factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a professional received in 2016. Architecture and interior design photographers whose images were most popular are recognised with the Photography award. A “Best Of Houzz 2017” badge will appear on winners’ profiles, as a sign of their commitment to excellence. These badges help homeowners identify popular and top-rated home professionals on Houzz.

“We are thrilled to receive this kind of recognition,” said Tim Hatton, Managing Director of Modern Unique Developments.  “As Cheshire natives, we know that our home county balances heritage and high-end luxury living in a totally unique way, and all of our homes – from new builds and statements in sustainability, to more traditional barn conversions – are designed to blend the best of countryside chic with uncompromising standards of luxury and sustainability.  This award demonstrates that MUD, and Cheshire, can compete against the best the world has to offer.”

“We’re so pleased to award Best of Houzz 2017 to this incredible group of talented and customer-focused professionals, including Tim Hatton,” said Andrew Small, Managing Director of Houzz UK and Ireland. “Each of these businesses was singled out for recognition by our community of homeowners and design enthusiasts for helping to turn their home improvement dreams into reality.”
