Bob Vila redesigns website for a new generation
NEW YORK - Home improvement expert Bob Vila announced the redesign of BobVila.com, which now offers digitized TV episodes and new home-related content that is easy to navigate, view and use.
"I have three kids who are part of the Millennial Generation, and like others in their 20s and 30s, they have moved into their first homes and started their own lives," said Vila. "Some young people are in fixer-uppers, some are juggling household and day-care expenses, and many are getting their first set of tools. They are budget conscious, environmentally aware and tech savvy – and so is the new BobVila.com."
In addition to offering practical and inspirational home-improvement content, and product showrooms, the new BobVila.com has a "home buying section." There, Bob gives visitors the tools to find the home that fits their taste and lifestyle, and suggests what to consider before making what may end up being the biggest investment in their lives. When they visit the "house tours" section, they will find some of the world's great homes and gardens featured. These homes, along with those highlighted in "Travels with Bob," will spark ideas for visitors' home-improvement projects and, maybe, inspire their next holiday. Visitors to BobVila.com also can find information about the 11 books Vila has written, including "Bob Vila's Complete Guide to Remodeling Your Home" and links to purchase their own copy.
