Do you ever look at your house and feel…uninspired? The bright side is, there is a multitude of websites available that will easily motivate you to look at your space through a different lens. Whether you are a casual curator or a veteran DIYer, there is a space for you to get reenergized and make your house the home you’ve been dreaming of.
Below are a few beloved sites and blogs to get those creative juices flowing:
If you haven’t heard of Pinterest, here’s one thing to know: it is addicting. While it covers far more than interior design and decorating, it is an ideal spot to capture all the ideas the following sites will generate for you (and will likely help you find even more!). The idea of Pinterest is that it offers a place to “pin” and categorize all of the ideas you find. Think of it as a virtual corkboard and “pinning” as the push pins to stick the items you find to your “boards.”
Flush with ideas categorized by room, Houzz will find a way to spark your interest. From bedrooms to bathrooms, to kitchens, home offices, and kids’ rooms, you can scroll through a variety of images and start to select those that define you and your style (or even those that you would like to define your style).
If you love a good before and after, this site is for you. With constant blog posts sharing the latest rehabs in, generally, small spaces, prepare to enter a black hole of lost time that results in plenty of inspiration.

If you are looking for more than just ideas, but how to execute those ideas, look no further than John and Sherry Petersik’s site, Young House Love. You can follow them from the beginning when they were working at an ad agency and sprucing up their apartment as a side hustle, learning as they go. They are now on their third or fourth home together and the projects have gotten increasingly complex. They share the good, the bad, and the ugly, as well as project pricing to help you figure out if it’s something you would be willing to dive into.
Whether you are bored and looking for something to scroll through or itching to roll up your sleeves and learn something new, these sites should offer plenty of imagery and information to satisfy whatever your current house-piration urges are.
