Before engaging a contractor, create a Pinterest mood board. Pinterest is an excellent resource for finding inspiration. It’s an easy way to research, visualize, organize, and clarify design objectives, layouts, appliances, cabinets, fixtures, finishes, furnishings, and genres. All your ideas are in one place and shareable.


  1. Zero in on your style and feel
    1. Contemporary, modern, traditional, eclectic, farmhouse, country…
  2. Gather ideas from interior and home design websites, blogs, catalogs, and magazines.
  3. Pin your favorites to your Pinterest board.
  4. Mix ‘n match.
  5. Notice common themes, palettes, products, and materials.
  6. Stay open to new ideas.
  7. Play with layouts, textures, color, and mood.
  8. Pare down.
  9. Share your Pinterest board with your general contractor.

Not your cup of tea? We can help with recommendations, must haves, and interior design.
