Inspiration is everywhere. Overwhelming? Maybe. But it’s all about where to look, organize, and understand your options. Once you discover how easy it is to gather all of your ideas, you’ll be amazed at just how simple it is to find inspiration. Today, I’m going to share two popular online platforms you can use to help navigate your quest to find garage door inspiration.


Pinterest is the visual bookmarking tool that helps you discover and save creative ideas. To get started: choose from one of the pre-defined categories Pinterest has outlined, use the search tool for trending topics, or enter phrases in the search bar for a completely custom search. Hit the enter button and voila! Thousands of ideas, articles, photos, tips, and much more are at your fingertips.

It’s easy to create personal “boards” to organize your favorite topics, themes, or categories. You will find unlimited options for garage door inspiration. Think beyond the basics when using Pinterest. How? Just start saving what you like and are drawn to. Pin things that interest you.

Once you start saving, you will naturally begin to organize in the way that makes the most sense to you and easily find the pins you have saved for later. Rearranging your pins can happen with the click of a few buttons. The best part? There’s no “right” or “wrong” way to organize on Pinterest! It’s completely a personal preference.


Houzz is an online platform for home remodeling and design, bringing homeowners and home professionals together in a uniquely visual community. To get started: browse photos, find pros, shop, or choose from one of the main living options in the navigation toolbar. Discussion groups and stories are another useful area if you’ve got something specific in mind or just want to see what’s popular. Of course, the custom search is also an option, too.

When you’re ready to start a project, use Houzz to get inspired and collaborate. You can read articles, shop buying guides, see reviews, and so much more. An added bonus: you can upload your own photos, create an ideabook and share with a professional, or keep them private if you’re just not ready. It’s a great site to gather all of your ideas, room by room, in an organized way.


Now that you’ve warmed up to the ideas of using Pinterest and Houzz, get exploring! Follow other pinners and their boards. Search for home improvement projects, upgrades, hacks, or gift guides. If you can type it, chances are someone else has too. Get as granular as you want with your searches. If there’s a color you’re really loving, a design style you prefer, or an overall theme you enjoy, these websites are a great place to keep track of it all.

Creating your wish list has never been easier and more accessible. Browse on your smart phone, tablet, or computer. Still overwhelmed? We’d love to help you gather all of your ideas together. Garage door inspiration is color, texture, theme, and a representation of your style. Visiting one of our four showrooms is a great place to see all of your inspiration come to life.
