Decorating a new home in McKinney TX takes some planning, especially if this is your first house. You have to decide how each room is going to look, what type of paint to use for the walls, what type of furnishings and accessories to use, etc. The trick to managing the job effectively is staying organized. Before the Internet, home buyers could clip pictures out of magazines. But today, you can create a virtual scrapbook with the help of visual bookmarking site Pinterest. Here are a few tips on how you can use Pinterest to organize your decorating project:
Get Inspired – Start pinning whatever photos you’re attracted to on a Pinterest board. After a while, you may notice that you’re attracted to certain colors or types of furniture. This will help you define your style.
Create separate room boards – Define the rooms you want to decorate and create a new pinboard for each one. This will help keep your ideas clear and separate, since your formal dining room will likely look much different than your master bedroom.
Pin directly from the source – When you visit a store’s website, make sure you click through to the specific product page so you’re capturing the direct link of the item you like, not just the URL of the website’s homepage. This way you’ll be sure to have a link back to the original product when you’re ready to buy it. There’s nothing worse than having to spend hours searching the web for that “perfect end table I saw two weeks ago.” Tip: Install Pinterest’s Pin It bookmarklet in your web browser to making pinning easy!)
Take notes – Since Pinterest allows you to add a description to your pins, and a comment on everything you re-pin, take advantage of this by adding notes or reminders for yourself. For example, “This black candlestick lamp will look great in the living room. Buy two.”
Search and follow pinboards that fit your style – Search Pinterest for stores, interior designers and magazines that appeal to your aesthetic, and follow their pinboards. You might discover new products and ideas that you wouldn’t have found on your own. You can also use the dropdown menu on Pinterest and search Home Décor for ideas.
Edit your boards – Don’t be afraid to get rid of pins that you don’t like after a while. This will help keep your boards clean and uncluttered, so you don’t get overwhelmed. If you’re unsure about a particular image, you can always move into an “undecided board.”
