Why Homeowner’s Love Pinterest

Why Homeowner’s Love Pinterest

Pinterest, one of the newest social networking tools that’s been gaining attention from marketers, is a home-lover’s dream come true. Pinterest is a virtual pin-board that allows users to “pin” images they like to different boards they’ve created. These boards can be shared with family, friends, and other Pinterest users who can then use your boards as inspiration for their own. While it’s great for businesses, it’s even better for homeowners!

Navigating the Site

The site is easy enough to navigate. When you log on it is a seemingly endless page filled with pins from users around the web. By connecting your Pinterest account with Twitter or Facebook, you’re able to follow the pin boards of any of your friends and followers. You’re able to filter the things you view on your page by selecting different categories that people have assigned to their boards. It’s easy to create a board and pinning items to it can be done one of two ways. Repinning from somebody else, or by downloading the pin button to your browser’s toolbar. You also have the option of uploading images from your computer.


Pinterest is the source of all of my organizing ideas. I had no idea that you could keep computer and other desk wires in check by using binder clips. I’ve also learned the best way to pack a suitcase. Keeping your home neat and tidy is much easier with Pinterest around.

The Best Recipes

If you’re looking for inspiration in the kitchen, Pinterest is the place to be. Recipes for delicious baked goods, poultry, vegetarian, and drinks are all at your fingertips. You can also search through recipes using key words, like “vegan.”

Tons of DIY

There are thousands of amazing DIY projects from around the web on Pinterest. Users have entire boards dedicated to crafting, rehabbing, and recycling projects.

Decorating Inspiration

Color schemes, beautiful rooms, and home goods of all styles have been pinned and are just waiting for you to discover them! Pinterest is so convenient if you’re thinking about remodeling or redecorating your home. It’s easy to pin what inspires you and then look at your whole pin board to pick out common themes.

Household Tips

How to remove stains, how to clean the space between the fridge and the counter, and different ways to get your kids to do their chores…Any kind of tip on home improvement or repair is on Pinterest.

Pinterest is a homeowners playground! Pinterest is currently only accepting new users by invitation only. However, chances are you know people that are already using it who can invite your with a few easy clicks. You can also request an invitation to the website and a response can take anywhere from 1-10 days.

    Pinterest is perfect for home decor and design stuff because of its totally visual interface! It is such an awesome source of inspiration. I am noticing other markets start to use it well too. For instance, I noticed many people posting interesting resume layouts the other day.

    I am just starting with Pinterest and I like it too. I really enjoy pinning and repinning. I am getting lots of ideas just by looking at “pIns”.
