Step 1: Search Pinterest With General Keywords

Use broad search keywords like “Interior Design.” What is great about Pinterest is that it is easy to explore and navigate all the different categories.

Here, you can see which general design styles most appeal to you. Perhaps you’re most attracted to the ‘farmhouse,’ ‘rustic,’ or even the ‘Scandinavian’ style.

Below is what you get when you click into a general interior design style. Pinterest will show you many more examples of that specific style. As you can see, we’re partial to Japanese design 🙂

Searching for general terms is an excellent place to begin if you don’t know where to start. Just have fun and pin any design you love to your board. It helps you get great inspiration and narrow down the design direction you like.

Step 2: Choose Style and Search Specific Rooms

Now that you have a general idea of what styles appeal to you, you can narrow your search criteria.

Select a style that appealed to you from step 1. Next, search that style with more specific keywords, like particular parts of a house. For example,

  • “Scandinavian Bedroom”
  • “Rustic Style Living Room”
  • “Bohemian Kitchen”

In the example picture below, a simple “Bohemian style kitchen” can offer lots of design inspiration for your camper van!

Delving deeper into a specific interior design style will help you get better ideas about the type of materials you’ll need and the color scheme when it comes time to build your campervan.

Remember to keep pinning pictures you like to your boards!

Step 3: Search for Specific Room Design Fixtures

By now, you might be starting to understand which interior style you like and specific sub-styles within that category.

Now is an excellent time to start narrowing down exactly what you like about your chosen interior style. For example, perhaps the “Farmhouse” style inspires you. You can then search for concrete niche terms, like:

  • “Farmhouse light fixtures”
  • “Farmhouse bed”
  • “Farmhouse sink & faucet”

In the example below, you can see what a simple “Farmhouse Sink & Faucet” search on Pinterest returns.

Continue to note what specific elements you’d like to have when designing your camper van interior.

Step 4: Search Style Using Specific Van Type

By now, you should have a good idea of what types of interior designs appeal to you. You should also know what specific design elements and fixtures you would like to implement in your camper van interior.

Now you can search for interior design ideas for both your desired design style AND the type of van you have (or want). This helps you see what’s already been done and posted on social media. For example:

  • “Sprinter camper van farmhouse interior”
  • “Ford Transit rustic interior”

You may not get many helpful results at this stage, but you can understand how other people design their camper van interiors. And hopefully, what you find on Pinterest can help inspire you to design your van.

Final Thought: Let Pinterest Help Give You Design Direction

It’s important to understand that most of us are not interior design professionals. And we likely won’t be able to recreate 100% of the picture-perfect interior designs we see online.

But by doing your own research and being prepared, you can set yourself up to achieve the best possible result when it comes time to start planning your van layout and, ultimately, building your camper van.
