Using Pinterest For Interior Design Inspiration

It’s a lot easier than you might think! Yes it’s a social media platform but it’s not as in your face as some of the others. Pinterest is a social network where people can find inspiration and ideas for their interests and hobbies. There is absolutely no pressure to update it and quite often, it can be used simply to observe but be prepared to be extremely impressed by what you see!

Using Pinterest to save your home décor inspiration is easy to get started, and to maintain. It can be used for personal or professional ideas. Here’s our guide on how to get the most out of Pinterest, so let the pinning begin.

With oh-so-much time on our hands, there really hasn’t been a better time to plan our next home improvement projects. From small, odd jobs to grand top-to-bottom renovations, regardless of project size or budget, it can be a challenge to know where to start.

Some swear by mood boards and you can create these easily on Pinterest. Pins are bookmarks that people use to save ideas they love on Pinterest. Pins can be images, videos or products. So as you’re browsing, simply ‘pin’ what you like the look of and you will be given an option to add it to a board that you’ve already created in Pinterest.

By room

One of the easiest ways to set up your own Pinterest platform is to have different boards for the different rooms you are trying to renovate. This is a great way to keep each room contained and quickly pin any idea straight to the relevant board. Home is where the heart is – and where we spend the bulk of our time these days. So, people are finding new ways to create some personal space.

Whether you are renovating one room or the whole house, keeping your ideas in one place can really help to visualise the way your home will look when it’s finished.

By product

This approach is much better suited to those who are just looking to make changes or alterations in the home, rather than a complete overhaul. If that’s you, then Pinterest can still do its thing. Pinning those finishing touches or must-have buys are a great way to bring together the elements you need to complete your new look.

By trend

Pinterest recently released its own data relating to trends including Shelfies, neon lights and a new one – Cloffice (is a closet/office – in case you were wondering). One of the largest trends expected in 2021 is Japandi. So if you’ve seen some of these inspiring styles doing the rounds online or in your favourite property magazine, you can now pin these online and add it to your personal board – but more importantly, bring your chosen trend into your home!
