Interior Design: A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words
The dawn of the Internet revolution brought with it an easier way to access information, and today we’re able to gather more information from more sources than ever before. For example, if you type the following phrase, ‘ideas for my closet‘ into Google, the search engine will return no fewer than 10,400,000 results for you to peruse. And, if you’re looking for photographic inspiration – who wants to read about ideas for a closet when they can see photos? – social media sites like Google +, Pinterest, Houzz, Facebook and even Twitter can provide you with all of the visual stimulation your eyes can handle.
It can all get a little intimidating, and if you’re looking to sort through the clutter and find the best interior design pictures on the Internet, check out Closet Factory’s guide to the best social sites for photos of design and decor below.
1 – Google +: While Facebook currently reigns as the most popular social media site on the planet, Google + is making up ground. One of the reasons for the platform’s rapid growth is attributed to the fact that everyone with a Gmail account automatically has a Google + account, but it’s also very user friendly and arguably the most media-rich social media site on the Internet. Nowhere can you find as many pictures, videos and blog posts than on Google +.
2 – Pinterest: During a visit to the site, Pinterest users will spend an average of 16 minutes flipping through the plethora of photos that the social media giant has to offer. Pinterest specifically appeals to home decorators, party planners, hair stylists and the DIY crowd, and with over 400 images on our Pinterest page alone, you’ll find plenty of closet pictures that appeal to your senses.
3 – Houzz: Armed with more than 16 million unique users, Houzz is the No. 1 source for interior design, home improvement and, you guessed it, closet pictures. The best feature about the 5-year-old social media monster – you can save the most inspiring photos into folders called Ideabooks, so when you need inspiration for your closet, you can get it at anytime.
4 – Facebook: Mr. Zuckerberg’s baby isn’t as media rich as Google +, Pinterest or Houzz, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find what you’re looking for on good ole Facebook. The search function isn’t overly helpful – unless you’re looking for a specific brand, person or small business – so we’ll just provide you with a Facebook link to some great pictures. You’re welcome!
5 – Twitter: When it comes to media-rich content, Twitter is the caboose of the social media train. With only 140 characters, users can find it difficult to add photos to their tweets, but it does happen. At Closet Factory, we try to post at least one high quality image a day – so don’t forget about Twitter when you’re looking for ideas for your closet.
There you have it – the definitive guide to finding the best interior design photos on social media sites. Now, all you have to do is go to each site, and start searching.
