Maybe you’re already familiar with Instagram and have an account, or maybe not. Instagram is a picture sharing social media platform. Millions of people, companies, and designers share pictures of what they are passionate about.

Looking for pictures of flooring? Just use the search function and you’re on your way. You can follow designers you love, flooring manufacturers, or just scroll through the sea of flooring and screenshot anything that inspires you. It’s a flooring idea heaven.

Tips and Tricks

  • Search #flooring or #flooringinspiration for a great place to start.
  • One of our favorite manufacturers, Mohawk, has an Instagram full of beautiful flooring and even pugs! Dogs and floors, what’s not the like?
  • Find pictures you like? Give the user a follow. They’re sure to post later on.
  • FYI people who take pictures of floors also tend to capture their feet. Have fun wading through the sea of shoe pictures as well.
  • Psst: give us a follow @flooringinccom.

Phone storage running low? Maybe you don’t want to be saving pictures you find on your phone. Pinterest is a great solution to that problem. With Pinterest, you can set up categories for the pictures you like and save them to individual “boards.”

For example, I can have a board for tile, wood, and vinyl. OR I can have a board for the kitchen, living room, and bedroom. Get the picture? You can keep all your flooring ideas in one place with Pinterest. Start pinning, you’ll be addicted soon enough.

Tips and Tricks

  • Start with the search “flooring,” you’ll be amazed at what you find.
  • From there, you can add as many options as you want to narrow down the results: wood, vinyl, stone, and different colors. Search away!
  • Since Pinterest is a very DIY friendly site, you’ll find a lot of inspiration using laminate and vinyl flooring. The most DIY friendly of flooring.
  • Look for unique flooring ideas or just simply bad ideas. Some people really want to cut corners, like painting their concrete to look like wood planks… yuck.
  • Psst: Our Pinterest is FlooringInc.

HGTV is everyone’s guilty pleasure. For better or worse, HGTV is full of design ideas with the added benefit of witnessing drama. House Hunters is my favorite for both of those! HGTV also has a lot of DIY shows, so if you’re looking to learn how to lay a floor, it might give you a good introduction to the topic.

To be honest, HGTV has something for everyone, and it’s much more fun than scrolling through a computer.

Tips and Tricks

  • Binge watch HGTV all you want. You’ll quickly find out what designs you do or do not like.
  • If you are binge watching, have a notepad handy so you can quickly write down flooring ideas you love.
  • Aren’t really into television? That’s okay, HGTV also has a handy website full of pictures and blog posts.
  • Let’s be real, this is just a great excuse to watch reality television as “research.”

I had never heard of before until recently, and now I am obsessed. It is simply an awesome website for design and flooring ideas. Not only can you look, but you can buy too!

With Houzz, you can search by photos and really customize what you want to see. Then, like Pinterest, you can save your new inspiration to your profile. Not only that, they also have a cool phone app to inspire on the go!

Tips and Tricks

  • You can search by room and location for very specific photos. Examples: kitchen, bath, bedroom, living, home office, storage and closet, gym, hallways, and garages. There are even more, too.
  • Know your style tastes? You can search by style! You can also search by budget and even the size of the room. This is a nice function to weed out a ton of design elements that you can’t afford, don’t want, or don’t work for your room. Get exactly what you want.
  • Found something you love? You can actually contact designers and contractors in your area.
  • Have you ever wondered what a piece of furniture would look like in your space? Houzz has an app that lets you try out furniture using your phone camera. So when you’re done with the floors, you can start designing the rest of the place!
