Why Can't You Just Buy What You See on Pinterest? Part 1

There is so much home inspiration on Pinterest. Like, a lot. But have you ever wondered, “Where’s the magic button to bring this to life?” Yes, some pins are shoppable but that doesn’t mean everything you see in the image is available to buy.

There is so much home inspiration on Pinterest. Like, a lot. But have you ever wondered, “Where’s the magic button to bring this to life?” Yes, some pins are shoppable but that doesn’t mean everything you see in the image is available to buy. If you’ve found your dream kitchen inspiration, does that one pin tell you where to buy the door handles and then marble countertop and the sink fixtures and the … I think you get the point. Pinterest is more for collecting inspiration than making purchase decisions. And because you are likely pinning many different potential options, Pinterest isn’t exactly the best place to keep track of what you have and haven’t bought. 


How would you manage all of your inspiration and purchases? Many people use spreadsheets or leave all the decisions up to their contractor but after a lot of experience in the field, we came up with a better way to compile shoppable inspiration for your home remodel. Our selections software allows both you and your contractor to create dynamic mood boards with multiple options, rank your favorite items, make purchase decisions, and track your selections and budget. 


Purchasing the right fixtures and materials for your home can be a tedious process. You will need to consider style, cost, availability, shipping times, and more. Delayed shipments often contribute to a project running over budget or past the desired timeline. Using Beam software makes sure that you get what you want, when you need it, for the price you planned for. Do you need help shopping for your home remodel? We’re here to help. Start using our software by purchasing one of our packages or scheduling a call with someone on our team.
