 About HER Home Magazine Building & Remodeling Insights

     a division of Design Basics, LLC



With research showing that 80%+ of homebuilding and remodeling decisions are made by women, Design Basics recognized that a magazine focusing on women's perspectives on design, construction and products for the home (as opposed to decorating, lifestyle, cooking, etc.) would be unique in the marketplace.


It didn't take long for the vision to become concrete. In a world where most architects, engineers and designers, most builders, and most of the tradespeople working in residential construction are men, homes were, for the most part unintentionally, male-centered. The publication name, Her Home, was finalized, signaling its uncompromised mission: giving women the information and tools to make informed decisions when building a new home or remodeling their present home.


Her Home magazine was launched and expanded to include insights from women homebuilders, industry experts, and feedback from our readers. Utilizing smart, fresh layouts and plenty of beautiful photography, each article is written with practical, take-away value. There is a need for this type of women's magazine, and Her Home magazine works hard to fill that need.


This web presence was established, where the library of Her Home Magazine articles and resources are available 24/7/365. Responding to home owner and home buyer feedback regarding issues women regret/wish they had known about/wish the contractor had told them about prior to signing their purchase Agreement, in 2011 we introduced Her Home Thought of the Day. These short, educational e-mails are sent three times weekly to help consumers make wise, informed decisions regarding their home, its design and the products featured in the home.



Published twice a year, Her Home magazine covers the trends and issues that are shaping the world of homebuilding and home improvement projects. Readers know that in every issue they will find insightful writing, beautiful photography, solid reporting and the magazine's knack for knowing what's just around the corner in terms of residential design and products.
