Her Home™ Magazine

Building & Remodeling Insights

Research shows that 80% of homebuilding and remodeling decisions are made by women. Therefore, in January 2003, Design Basics recognized a need to publish a magazine for women in the dreaming or planning stage of building a new home or remodeling their current home. It didn’t take long for the vision to become a reality. The first issue was launched in September that same year. From the start, our goal was to provide practical information and a wealth of ideas to help women make these major decisions.

Unlike home decorating magazines, Her Home focuses on women’s perspectives on design, construction, and products for the home. It also includes input from leading women home builders and industry experts. The publication is written to give women the information and tools to make wise, informed decisions when building a new home or remodeling her current home.

Utilizing smart, fresh layouts and beautiful photography and designs, each article is written with practical, take-away value. There is a need for this type of magazine, and Her Home Magazine fills that need.


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. Builders can order Her Home Magazine to use for their sales and marketing efforts – contact us today! 800.947.7526
