Using Pinterest to Spark Inspiration for Your Chicago Home

If the time at home has you craving some home updates, but you’re not sure where to start — you’re not alone. It can be overwhelming to know which rooms to update, what your end goal is, and how to make it happen. A great place for homeowners to start is by stocking up on inspiration and getting clear on the things they like. Pinterest is a perfect tool for this. Here are just a few ways you can use it to your advantage:

Find Your Style

Start big-picture. Many of us know we like specific colors, and certain pieces of furniture just stand out to us, but we’re not exactly sure what our overall style is. And your taste may not even fit perfectly into a single style. But delving into the styles that are out there can help you refine your vision and better understand how the things you like fit together. Creating boards for each style you find inspiring can help you arrive at a perfectly balanced combination in the end.

DIY Projects for the Whole Family

Pinterest is your one-stop shop for DIY projects. With many families spending a lot of time at home this winter, it’s a great opportunity to tackle some house projects together. From fun projects for your little ones to creative, detailed projects for teens, Pinterest is your source for it all. Collecting a board of potential projects and reviewing them with your family can help you prioritize the ones you’d most like to accomplish together.

Create a Color Scheme

Color is a powerful way to change the feeling of a space, but it’s not always easy to create the perfect color scheme. Maybe you love neutrals, but you don’t know how to pair them together for that warm, cozy vibe. Or maybe there’s a bold color you’d like to incorporate but you’re not sure what other colors would work with it. Pinterest is a great resource for exploring color palettes. You can start with grabbing photos of the colors you love the most, and then start looking for rooms that incorporate these into one design.

Go Bold

It can be scary to take the leap and transform a room in your house, especially if you don’t consider yourself a designer. Use Pinterest as a place to unleash your creativity and take off all restrictions. Create a board for all the ideas you love but that seem too bold or daring to try in your own home. As you collect these, you might start seeing some common threads about what you love. Having this information can help many homeowners muster up the courage to make a major design change.

 

Have you used Pinterest in your own home design process? What kind of things do you pin for inspiration? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
