How We Source Images and Graphics
Trendey has a team of photographers and interior designers that collect images to accompany articles.
To curate a diverse collection of inspiring and useful images, Trendey’s editorial team also outsources its image and video production. All content produced and owned by third parties gets credited directly on the site. This transparency is important to ensure readers can trust the content Trendey creates and publishes. A skilled visual content team sources images through rigorous outreach efforts. Through Trendey’s internal system, intended use is communicated to copyright owners. Permission must be expressly obtained before images are used on the Trendey website. To avoid confusion or miscommunication, Trendey provides copyright owners with a contract that explicitly states Trendey’s intended use of an image for promotional purposes. In some circumstances where it is appropriate, Trendey may provide the copyright owners with a licensing fee as compensation for permission to use an image.
We also allow our readers get featured on Trendey. Via Upload Your Image form, they can send us pictures and videos of DIY projects, decor ideas, renovation and remodeling projects, home interior and exterior designs. If we find such content suitable for our site, we post it and give credit to the person that has sent it us.
How We Review Products
It is against Trendey’s policy to accept payment or products in exchange for a positive review. Should it be discovered that a team member does write positively about a product in exchange for compensation, the offending review will be removed and a correction published.
When curating recommended products, a multi-point list of considerations provides our editorial team guidance to ensure consistency of quality. Only products sold by reputable brands with proven quality track records are considered for inclusion. Sources include but are not limited to the following websites:
