Why You Can Trust Our Reviews

When we started Better Home + Living several years ago, we were just a tiny website reviewing ice makers. We gave our everything to ensure that people knew what each ice maker offered and helped them decide which one they should buy.

No hype, just the honest truth.

When we expanded into home and living articles, we brought that same commitment to every review we wrote. No hype, just the honest truth. We set out to answer questions that are important when making a purchasing decision:

Is this product worth the money?
Will it benefit my life? Does it have value?
Is this product going to do the job that I need it to do?
Is the product quality-made?

Though we indeed earn a small commission when you use our links to purchase a product, it’s not why we write reviews. We want to help you make an informed decision, which means we actually use the product and then write about what we learned. Sometimes we invest money and purchase the product ourselves, and sometimes the company will send us a sample to demo and review. Whether we purchase the product or we get it free, you’ll always get our honest option.

With every review, you’ll get a list of things we loved about the product and a list of the things that we didn’t like about the product. We give you advice based on using the product in real-life scenarios. We aspire to give you everything you need to know about each product before you make a purchase.

It’s who we are at Better Home + Living and will not change. So if we say that we don’t like a product – we mean it. And if we say that we love a particular product – you can believe it.

Just remember, because we don’t like a particular product doesn’t mean you won’t. That’s why we break it all down in our review so you can decide what’s best for you.
