5 ways to get inspired for your home improvement project
Getting motivated for a home improvement project can be tricky sometimes, so we’ve come up with 5 ways to find that illusive inspiration…
1. Use Pinterest
Pinterest is a virtual pin board and a great way of gathering inspiration for a project. Used by everyone from architects and designers, to ordinary people with a love of great design, Pinterest is a visual discovery tool, where users create ‘boards’ to which they can then ‘pin’ their own images, those from the internet, or other users’ pins. With a strong home improvement and DIY section, Pinterest is the perfect way to collect your thoughts and find home inspiration. At Majestic, we even have our own Pinterest account, to help you to get inspiration for your next home improvement project faster than ever!
2. Visit a showroom
Even though the internet has opened up a myriad of possibilities when it comes to finding inspiration, nothing beats going to a real home improvement showroom to see products in reality. Showrooms are a place where you can see the products that a home improvement company uses installed in a working setting, giving you a good idea of how such a window, door or conservatory might look in your own home.
3. Talk to a professional
Talking to a professional can also help to provide you with valuable inspiration for a project. Any good home improvement company will be willing to offer you free advice about improving your home. At Majestic, we pride ourselves on the quality and impartiality of our advice. We aim to give you the most helpful advice, with no obligation at all, to help you find the perfect window, door or conservatory for your property.
4. Check out home improvement blogs
One of the most important ways to get inspiration for a project is to see what other people are doing! A great way to do this is by reading a few home improvement blogs online. Blogs are a cross between a website and diary (the term is a combination of ‘web’ and ‘log’) and there’s a huge variety of them dedicated to home improvement. Detailing everything from tips and DIY guides, to the latest industry news and product reviews, home improvement blogs are an incredibly useful way to immerse yourself in inspiration for your project!
5. Watch some TV programmes!
Perhaps one of the only opportunities you’ll have to watch television for ‘research purposes’, some TV programs can really help you to get inspired for your home improvement project. Programs such as ‘Grand Designs’ and ‘George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces’ are a useful tool to see what other people have done with their properties, and to gather ideas for your own project.
