In our current digital age, finding design inspiration is easier than ever. There are countless blogs, websites, and magazines all offering luxurious images of what could be. But sifting through those takes time, and who has much of that anymore? What if we told you there was an easier way? You could hire an interior designer or decorator if you wanted to. Or you can accomplish a similar result if you have the right tool. All you need is a smartphone or computer and Pinterest.
Maybe you already use Pinterest to drool over that delicious meal or get party-planning inspiration. But the great thing is that you can also use Pinterest for home remodel ideas to achieve a more stylish home. First, you’ll want to go ahead and create some new boards. After all, you will want someplace to house all the magnificent ideas you find!
Find BIG Inspiration
You may not have the time or the funds for a kitchen or bathroom remodel at the moment. And that’s okay. You can still dream! Plus, if you know that one (or both) of these rooms will eventually be your focal point, Pinterest is the best place to start planning.
Create a board for kitchen or bathroom inspirations—or both! These boards will help you collect broader visions and ideas. Look for wide photos rather than close-up details. Snag anything that fits the color pallets you want to include in your home.
If a larger remodel will take center stage eventually, you can base other design choices on your big inspiration boards.
Focus on Details
Once you have an overall idea of what you want your space to look like, create a few more boards to start capturing details. Think about countertops—does that recycled glass surface absolutely call to you? Or do you want to go a more traditional route with granite or quartz? What about those lovely mosaic tiles behind the sink? Will they work in your space?
Don’t forget about cabinetry, hardware, shower walls, and tub surrounds. Seek out some beautiful close-up photos to add to your boards.
Add the Finishing Touches
Every stylish home has one thing in common. There are plenty of perfectly selected and placed finishing touches. Create a few final Pinterest boards to house inspiration for these. A few things to consider are pillows, throw rugs, towels, frames, artwork, and dishes. There are endless options and ideas. Look for items to compliment your big-picture goals and highlight carefully selected details.

You have dreamed of transforming your bathroom into your very own oasis. And it is finally time to turn that dream into reality! Bathroom remodels are fun. And, with just a handful of changes, you can make a spectacular splash. However, perhaps your dream bathroom requires a complete overhaul. So, while you have a picture in your mind of what you want the finished product to look like, now you need to decide what materials to use.
We understand that the sheer volume of options available on the market can feel a little overwhelming. We wanted to remove the guesswork, make your life easier, and help you finish your dream bathroom faster. So, we pulled together a few tips on how to pick materials for your bathroom remodel.
Countertops and Vanities
All bathroom countertops take a beating. They are used frequently and are subject to regular exposure to moisture. You want a material that will not only accomplish your aesthetic goals but will also offer durability. Thankfully, you can accomplish both with vanity countertops from Granite and TREND Transformations.
Thanks to our exclusive partnership with Microban®, our etherium® By E-Stone surfaces stay cleaner for longer and actively reduce the growth of bacteria 24/7. Additionally, our ForeverSeal® technology allows us to offer countertops that are heat, scratch, stain, and odor resistant. They are also non-porous and mold/mildew-resistant. You can breathe easy knowing that your investment will last for many years to come. Choose from marble, quartz, granite, recycled glass, travertine, or concrete.
And what’s even better is that all of our surfaces are low-maintenance and easy to clean. That way, you can spend less time scrubbing the bathroom and more time enjoying it!
Updating your floor may not have crossed your mind when you planned your bathroom remodel. Granite and TREND Transformations make the process easy. Plus, we offer a full suite of products that withstand heavy foot traffic.
Choose a surface that is tough enough to hold up to a regular beating and perhaps an occasional object being dropped on it. Don’t forget to consider the impact moisture can have on your floors. Those wood floors look lovely, but they will quickly warp and buckle with excessive moisture. Instead, opt for something like our etherium® By E-Stone slabs.
Tub and Shower Surrounds
Adding a tub or shower surround is a wonderful choice. Having said that, one should keep in mind that not all materials are equally up for the job. These areas get consistent exposure to water. So you want to choose something that will stand the test of time and make cleaning a breeze.
Our mosaic tiles collection and etherium® By E-Stone slabs are mold- and mildew-resistant and easy to clean.
