Different Types of Vision Boards: A Guide to Finding Your Perfect Visual Tool – VISIYA

Updated: May 6

A vision board is a visual representation of your goals, dreams, and desires. It serves as a powerful tool to manifest your aspirations by keeping them top of mind and reminding you of what you're working towards.


There are different types and kinds of vision boards. Finding the right board for your current state will help you achieve exactly what you want.


Type of Vision Board 1 – I Know Exactly What I Want


The first type of board is suitable for people who have already determined their intentions for the future and are looking for a tool to visualize their desires. This board converts something that is already clearly articulated in the mind into a beautiful collage. In this case, it is better to use the most common option – a feng shui vision board.


Use this vision board if:

  • You are very clear about your desires or goals in life

  • You want to change your network or setting

  • You have a specific goal that you would like to achieve in your life (for example, to build a new house or start your own business)

Type of Vision Board 2 – I Allow Myself to Dream


If you are still unsure of all your desires in every area of life, or if you just want to dream, this type of board (dream board) is for you. This vision board has no limitations, it allows you to dive into your fantasies and create the life of your dreams. You can also use a mood board instead of a vision board to foster your creativity and imagination.


Use this vision board if:

  • You're not entirely sure what you want

  • You are experiencing a difficult period or grief

  • You have a rough vision of one or more areas in your life

  • You know you want a change, but you don't know how it's possible

Type of Vision Board 3 – The “Theme” Board


This type of vision board is helpful for visualizing the wishes of one life area with clear criteria and intentions. For example, you want to create a layout of your future home – you can use this board to collect pictures of the interior or neighborhood. Or you can use this board type to collect all your travel goals in one place. We recommend starting to work on such a board with a significant event which marks a new life cycle, e.g., the New Year or your birthday.


Use this vision board if:

  • If you are addressing one specific area of your life. For example, “work and career”, “love and relationships” or “leisure and travel”.

Vision Boards Categorization


It is worth mentioning that there is another categorization of vision boards. It is based on what material or medium is used to make it. After all, vision boards are as unique as you are.


Poster board. This is a classic option. You take a sheet of paper of the desired format, scissors, stickers, printed photos, and start creating your vision board.


Letter size paperboard. Its advantage is its small size. It's easy to fold it in half and put it in your diary or frame.


Corkboard. This option is good because it can be gradually supplemented with pictures, all you need are pins. You can hang such a board above your workplace, so it will motivate you every day.


A notebook or journal with a list of wishes. Suitable for those who want to keep their wishes with them, and at the same time protect them from prying eyes. It is the least expensive option, and it does not take much time to prepare it.


E-version (in a vision board app on iPad, phone, laptop). A modern form of a vision board. It is convenient to create and edit at any time. It is also recommended to make a screenshot of the board and put it as a screensaver on your home screen / desktop or print it out.
