Many homeowners make it their hobby to personalize their living space - whether that means decorating a dorm room, putting up artwork in an apartment or furnishing a house. However, it can sometimes be difficult to come up with a concept that feels right.

The Kansas City Star recently suggested creating an inspiration board to help the creative thought process. This is a tool that can be used no matter what project one is attempting. It is often employed by professional designers who are just getting started on renovations.

A board's features can consist of as little as paint chips, desired colors, pictures and sketches. The important part is to have all the ideas on display in a central location, which can help keep them organized.

This could be an especially handy tool for couples who are trying to collaborate.

"Boards bring everyone to the same vision. Everything can fall into place from that moment on," design consultant Dawn Esposito told the news provider.

Interior design is a popular field that is expected to grow faster than the national average in the coming years, as many Americans may end up moving or downsizing their homes. As of 2008, there were 71,700 of these professionals.
