Pinterest has brought an invaluable level of help and inspiration to home improvement enthusiasts, design boffins, and people interested in beautiful things in general. But how does one go about using the countless images and themes presented by the website toward a practical redecoration project?
While you might be rather overwhelmed by the amount of scattered content on Pinterest, we are here to show you how to wield the invaluable tool correctly and turn your room into the stunning haven you have always wished for!
Bedroom Board Management
The various posts which you find on Pinterest, called “Pins”, can literally be stuck up onto various “Boards”, as one would do in real life. This is an excellent way to begin organizing and eventually planning the various moods and themes you are digitally shaping.
So, create a board and call it “My Bedroom”. You can now start throwing all the different images and inspirations into this box as you see fit. You will soon come to find that you have all the elements and touches needed to properly redecorate your room to your vision.
Remember to avoid the classic Pinterest trap of pinning everything which jumps out at you into your My Bedroom board. You should only be selecting objects and styles which you will actually use and can be feasibly installed. In time, you can also start narrowing down your board’s pins.
Clearing Up Your Vision
Now that you have a fine collection of ideas, it’s time to start filtering out this smorgasbord of inspiration into something uniform and workable. For example, out of all the various wall paint colors you have found, try to pick a handful that works for you and then get rid of the rest.
It really helps to keep a journal with you while you do this, to best detail things like bedding, wall paint, rugs, and carpets, etc. If you just try to keep your project assembled with pictures, it is only too easy to lose track and become disorganized.
Now that you are closer to having a concise plan, it’s time to create a new board!
Homing In On A Plan
You should by now be ready to create your next bedroom board, let’s call it “My Bedroom – Final”. You can now further narrow down your pins into an even smaller selection of ideas and looks. You obviously only want to carry over themes and items which go together and which you can physically imagine redecorating your room with.
Spend a bit more time with this board and cut out everything which you do not think would go in your new room. It’s finally time to make some solid decisions regarding your room. What color will your walls be? How will your bedding look? What kind of art or photographs will go up on your wall?
Finally, you now have a fantastic map or guide for redecorating your room with. Good luck and have fun!
