When planning a home design project, the first thing you’ll want to do is establish the look you’re going for in your home. That way, you’ll be able to communicate with the renovation team what you are trying to accomplish with the project.

Fortunately, there are plenty of resources available to give you the inspiration you need to create a home you’ll love. Here are four places to look for design ideas:

1. Houzz

Houzz is a platform for home remodeling and design with a uniquely visual community. You can shop for products, such as bathroom vanities and dining tables. However, the best part of Houzz is the photos section, where you can peruse hundreds of rooms from which to glean design inspiration. Window-shop by room, by price, by style, by color and more.

2. Pinterest

Pinterest is an incredibly visual social platform where people post everything from recipes to fashion ideas. But Pinterest users also post tons of home décor ideas you can browse. Look through ideas based on design categories – English country, contemporary, and traditional, for example. Pinterest also has an abundance of tips and tricks, including ways to design on a budget.

3. Design Blogs

Following your favorite blogs is a great way to stay on top of the things you love, and home design is no exception. Blogs focus on different styles and goals (getting organized, for example). One of the best things about following a home design blog is getting to “know” the blogger as he or she lets their personality shine through the posts. To get started, just Google “Home design blogs.” You’ll find a treasure trove of blogs to read in the search results.
