We accept articles, photo galleries, portfolios, how-to articles, tutorials, and videos pertaining to:

  • residential interior design (any and all rooms)
  • home architecture
  • landscaping, swimming pools, decks/patios, gardening, outdoor structures (anything related to homes’ outdoor areas
  • DIY projects (please no round ups where you put together a list of various projects and link out to the project.  If you wish to submit a DIY project, please submit the full project including photos, materials, time it takes, and of course step-by-step instructions).
  • Furniture and appliances.
  • Home improvement articles including how-to and informational tool articles.

The more images you can provide, the better.  Please ensure you have the necessary copyright license to publish the images.

Please write on a Very SPECIFIC Topic

Please do not pitch us or submit general topics.  Instead, settle on a very specific topic so that you can cover it in-depth.

For example, don’t submit a “10 Kitchen Design Tips” article.  That’s far too broad. Instead, submit an article all about kitchen farm sinks.  The more specific and detailed, the better.

Round-ups and listicles are typically rejected.

Mastery of language and prose

Your article must demonstrate a mastery of the English languish and prose.  It should be interesting, opinionated, thoroughly researched and informative.  Use an active voice. Grip readers with a fascinating or controversial introduction and continue in that vein throughout the article.  We will reject articles that do not grip the reader from the start.

Unless you are a professional writer who commands top rates, we recommend you hire such a writer followed by it being thoroughly edited by an editing professional.

Requirements

Sadly, we reject far more articles than we end up publishing.  If you submit an article to us, please ensure it’s excellent, unique and that you have the license to publish all images provided to us.  It should be the best article on the Web for that topic.  This is not a joke.

4. Attribution

We’re all about giving credit where credit is due.  After all, you’re not writing for us for charity.  However, any dofollow links provided will only be permitted in the body of the article in a contextual manner that makes sense by linking to a very relevant piece of content that enhances the article for our readers.  Byline links will be nofollow.  If the content is promotional in any way, all links will be nofollow.
