Custom Home Builders Recommend the Use of Pinterest to Build the Home of Your Dreams

If you’re planning on building the home of your dreams, you are probably well aware that there are a lot of selections and decisions that need to be made as a part of the process. The choices can seem endless and, especially towards the end of the process, can seem overwhelming. This is why many custom home builders actually recommend that their clients use Pinterest, as it can help to keep all your ideas and thoughts in one handy place.
What is Pinterest?
Firstly, we felt it was important to take a closer look at what Pinterest actually is. Basically, it’s a virtual pinboard. The platform allows users to sign up for an account and to create a variety of “boards”, which are essentially just folders where you can “pin” similar ideas. Later on, all you need to do is go to the board in question and all of your ideas are laid out before you. Many people use it to collect recipes, inspiration for parties, and the like.

How can Pinterest help me build my dream home?
The most common way that people use Pinterest when building is to create a separate board for each room of the home. This means that you can collect images and ideas that relate specifically to the master bedroom, kitchen, lounge room, family bathroom, guest bedroom or ensuite – you don’t have to have everything all meshed in together. You might have a different colour scheme or theme in mind for each room, so separating them can help.

Some custom home builders have found that their clients get even more detailed and create separate boards for specific elements, such as kitchen cabinets and lighting fixtures. This will allow you to see how all of the individual elements will work together across the home, however, it should be noted that there is a limit to how many boards you can create so you might run out of room before you run out of elements. Just be sure to use your space wisely.

Is there anything I should watch out for?
Whilst using Pinterest to build your dream home is a perfectly safe endeavour, you should watch out for broken links. Some images (mostly those you’ve found on Pinterest, not those you’ve searched specifically for) don’t point back to the originating website, which means that you’re limited to only the information provided with the image. There is nothing worse then falling in love with an element only to discover you don’t know where to buy it!

To ensure that your dream home is everything you wanted and more, we recommend speaking to your custom home builder about using Pinterest. As you can see, the platform offers a number of benefits and allows you to keep track of all the ideas swirling around your mind. This can go a long way to helping you verbalise exactly what it is you’re looking for, and you can even show your builder what you’re thinking. All round, it’s a success!
