1. Ideabook: This is closely related to Pinterest’s concept of a board, but instead it’s an idea book where you can store different ideas.  You’ll be able to separate kitchen concepts from bedroom concepts.  As you see in the picture below, you’ll be able to pick what ideabook you want to put it in and also leave your comments on it. By using the ideabook, you can dream up your own house before ever start remodeling!
