Who are we?

The Shiny Home is a team of freelance writers with a mission to help you find product that works for you. We are based in Europe and United States and our goal is to become the world’s largest website with unbiased and helpful buying guides and reviews.

How we make our reviews

Before we write a buying guide or review, we pick at least 40 different products that can be found in online stores. We check their ratings, price, design, and several other features. After we pick at least 40 different products, we contact professionals to help us sort them out. If we review toilets, we ask several professional plumbers to help us out with our selection. 

After we pick the top 10 products we believe are the most interesting for wide range of consumers, we dig a little bit further and review each one of them individually.

Although we focus on advantages as well, we mostly focus on disadvantages. We believe that every product has some disadvantages consumers should be aware of.

We don’t just push for the most expensive products out there.

This means that if we were to pick the best car, we wouldn’t recommend a bunch of Bugattis and Ferraris, but we would pick cars that we believe are appropriate for most budgets.

How we make money

The Shiny Home staff consists of multiple full-time freelance writers who like to get paid. On top of that, we use several paid services such as hosting, domain, and several technical maintenance services from 3rd party companies that allow us to keep The Shiny Home up and running.

We like to keep the website free of annoying ads that pop up every 20 seconds which is why we have affiliate relationships with Amazon and similar online stores and affiliate programs.

If you click on our affiliate links and decide to buy something, there’s a chance we will make some money of your purchase. This DOES NOT have any effect on the price you pay.

We pick the products 100% independently. This means that we don’t have a special relationship with any manufacturer or brand and it’s fully our choice which products we recommend. This is essential to keep our reviews unbiased.

How to join us and participate in our giveaways?

We are launching giveaways from time to time. All you have to do is join our mailing list to be the first to know about them.
