The Inspiration Doctor: Ideas for your character’s home

One of the things I enjoy doing when writing a story is to think of the places my characters live in. The fun part is drawing them out because most of the time, there just isn’t a house that goes well with my characters. Besides, I like creating everything from the get go instead of taking a picture and saying that’s my character’s house. 

Here are the links I’ve bookmarked to get ideas for homes and such. It’s not exhaustive. I do get ideas for homes and buildings in other places but I hope the following’s helpful enough for now.

Types of houses


Types of apartments

Strange houses

Obviously, not all characters have a place to live so I’ve included information on homelessness.
