My wife has been using the site a lot lately, finding things like recipes and gardening project ideas. I finally took a look at it recently. We have been planning on doing some kitchen remodeling lately, specifically, building new custom cabinets. So I went to Pinterest and simply typed in "kitchen". Thousands and thousands of images popped up. I then tried "kitchen cabinets". Again, thousands of images. I got some really good ideas from the site and have since used it for inspiration for other projects around the home.
If you are looking for inspiration or ideas for any projects you are planning around the house, Pinterest is a great jumping off point. If you are getting ready to sell a home, it might give you ideas to help stage or just spruce up your place for little, or no money at all. If you are looking to buy a house, it can definitely give you ideas on things to do once you move in to help turn it into your home.
