Pinterest will roll out a new look it has been testing since January to the rest of its users starting Monday.

The popular social network said in a blog post that users can expect an invitation in their email to check out the redesign.

Among the changes coming in the redesign are bigger pins with more information. Pinterest said that when users click on a pin, they'll also be able to navigate to see other pins from the same pinboard, other pins from the same source and other pins by people who pinned the item users are looking at.

Under the hood, Pinterest said it has rebuilt its foundation, which will make the website more reliable and make it easier for the company to improve it in the future. Another small change users will like; when they scroll through pins and then click back on their browser, they'll be taken right back to where they were.

When Pinterest rolled out the experiment in January, it said the new redesign would make the website quicker and faster for users to get around as well as improve navigation to make it more intuitive.

Pinterest also said it is looking for user feedback on the new look and encouraged users to leave it in the comments of the blog post announcing the change.
