Design Inspiration for Your New Home

When you are moving into a new home, you may want an entirely new look to go along with that. Even if you are happy with most of your current furnishings and don’t need to change everything, a move may mean more space or different space that you need to furnish. If interior design isn’t one of your hobbies, where do you find ideas that will help you turn your house into a home. Start with these five sites to find lots of great ideas.

HGTV.com
HGTV is full of great ideas for everything house related. Ideas of all kinds can be found in whatever style you are looking for. From the front porch to the backyard and everything in between, HGTV is full of stunning ideas. Browse ideas by room or style until you find just the look for you.

Havenly.com
Havenly.com is the perfect option if you are never quite sure how to pull a room together. For a small fee, they will ask about your style and make recommendations that meet your budget and style. This is a great option if you don’t want to buy a prepackaged room of furniture and just can’t decide what goes together.

Houzz
This website brings together home professionals of all kinds to share ideas and experiences that you can search and brose until you find the right one for you. Whether you are looking for a fresh look for one room or the whole house, Houzz can make it easy to find.

Modsy.com
Modsy is another option to work with a designer for a small fee. They will provide design ideas within your budget then offer you discounted prices to purchase the items through them so you don’t have to track everything down yourself. They offer unlimited changes to their design recommendations and will keep working with you to get it right.

House Beautiful
The companion website to the magazine shares design ideas from a variety of sources. From whole designs to focus pieces to make a perfect statement, this site is full of ideas that you will love.

These sites are just a starting point to help you perfect your home to your style and needs.

Using Houzz to Design Your House

Using Houzz to Design Your HouseIf you have recently bought a new home or are just ready to update your existing one, you may be tempted to hire an interior designer. While there is nothing wrong with this option, in today’s technology focused world, more and more people are turning to the Internet and websites like Houzz to personally design their homes.

Houzz is an online community focusing on interior design, architecture, landscape design and home improvement. Use the website or app to browse ideas, find professionals in your area, shop for new things and seek the advice of others.

The website is categorized by the rooms in your home making it easier for you to browse through ideas based on what you are looking for. When you find something you like, save it or email it to a friend or the interior designer you are working with. The items you see are almost always linked so you can purchase them if you are interested.

Houzz is a great option for those who know what they like when they see it but aren’t good at putting things together themselves. Create ideabooks with the things you like so that you can easily refer back to them later. You also have the option to share your ideabooks so go ahead and send it to your spouse or friend to get their opinion. Using ideabooks on Houzz is pretty easy and similar to creating boards on Pinterest.

Like anything, you can research forever and with so many options available on Houzz, it is easy to put off making a decision. Don’t let Houzz slow you down. Instead, use Houzz to easily sort your options then give yourself a deadline to decide. While having wishful ideabooks might be fun, keep those separate and focus your time on the options that fit your current lifestyle and budget.
