AE Design occasionally participates in affiliate programs with online vendors.  Links originating from the content published on this website that lead to the purchase of goods or services at affiliate sites may result in compensation, financial or otherwise, from the affiliate.


Other than the above-mentioned affiliate links and those editorial articles that have been clearly-marked as incentivized, all content and reviews on the AE Design website are strictly editorially driven and are generated without payment or incentive by advertisers or external companies. Absolutely no payments in cash or in kind are solicited or accepted from advertisers or external companies for posts written and published herein.

We make every effort to test and review products and services fairly and transparently.  In the instance where we have received a product for the purposes of testing or review, that fact will be noted at the bottom of the review post. The views expressed in our reviews, however, are the personal views of the AE Design team and are written for the sole purpose of informing our readers accurately.


Within the social media channels owned and maintained by AE Design including but not limited to Facebook, Houzz, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter, in the event where we have received a product for the purposes of review, financial compensation, or any other form of compensation, the published content will be identified as being an advertisement or a sponsored post.
