Home Hardware recently launched their Design Centre, a collection of applications geared towards helping homeowners research a huge range of products available at their local store. The Design Centre includes the Beauti-Tone Paint Home Designer and the Beauti-Tone Paint Colour Finder, which I blogged about in the previous post, as well as two new applications, the HomeWorks Visualizer and Your Scrapbook.
HomeWorks Visualizer is similar to the Beauti-Tone Paint Home Designer in that it allows the customer to apply product to a variety of home exteriors and interior rooms, including kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and more. HomeWorks Visualizer includes a wide range of product categories including siding, stucco, brick, stone, roofing, decking, garage doors, concrete coatings, paint, doors, windows, flooring, ceiling, countertops, wall coverings and tiles. Users can save their projects, email them to a friend, and request a home install from their local Home Hardware store.
You can use the HomeWorks Visualizer here: http://www.homehardware.ca/index/renoworks-homeworks
Your Scrapbook is a great place for members of the Home Hardware site to store photos they find inspirational into their very own scrapbook. Using the Image Grabber utility, which can be launched on any website using a bookmark, a member can add photos on the fly while they are surfing any web site.

Note: You will need to register on the Home Hardware site before you can use the Scrapbook.
