Sometimes, inspiration just doesn’t seem to strike. And this often happens when we are trying to think of creative projects, especially in the home. When it is time to decorate a room in your house or completely renovate your kitchen or bathroom, you might find that you just can’t think of a suitable design or interior design idea.
Don’t worry, though; this lack of inspiration doesn’t have to stay around forever. There are plenty of places you can turn to whenever you need some cool decor ideas. Here are some of the best.
Lots of people who work in the interior design industry or have been passionate about design for quite some time now write popular blogs to help people create a lovely home. It’s a good idea to find a couple of interior design blogs that you like, and which reflect your own tastes, as these will be full of great ideas that I’m sure will fill you with some much-needed inspiration. Another great thing about following these kinds of blogs and websites is that they often have posts that contain a lot of useful decorating and home maintenance tips.

Interior Design Magazines
If you want to read even more interior design related articles and reports, then it could be worth thinking about subscribing to an interior design magazine. These usually come out every week or every month, and are very much abreast of the latest fashion trends. The writers for these magazines are often professional interior designers so you can guarantee that every article is full of useful information and some very handy tips and tricks!
Look At Your Friends’ Homes
Next time you visit a friend to catch up over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, try and make a mental note of their home’s decor. You might see some colors, patterns, or decorative ornaments and features that you really like. If you ask them where they got theirs from, you can see if there are any similar ones that you could incorporate into your new decorating scheme. Your friend might also be able to give you some recommendations of furniture stores and professional decorators who you could hire to help you transform your home.
Furniture And Home Stores
Once your friend has told you where she got all her cool furnishings from, it is worth heading to the shop to wander around and see if inspiration strikes you. You might see a furniture style that you think would work well in your living room or a wallpaper pattern that would really brighten up your bedroom. Visiting a shop in person will also give you the chance to chat to the shop assistants and get their expert opinions.
