Kitchens and Kitchen Furniture - UK - September 2016
“Popularity of creative home cooking and baking, especially at weekends, is adding to a love of gadgets and small kitchen appliances, which in turn means that people need to make the most efficient use of their storage and work surfaces. Creating more work spaces and better storage are key factors when people change their kitchen layouts.
There is a fashion for bigger, open kitchen spaces as well as more open-plan kitchen/living areas in the home. Kitchens are not just a place for cooking, they have become a hub for entertaining, eating and family leisure time at home. This is encouraging households to splash out for greater style and more features when revamping their kitchens."

This report will cover the following areas:
- How much influence do builders have in choosing where to buy?
- Kitchen planners are a vital ingredient in this market place
- How is the role of the kitchen changing?
For the purposes of this Report, Mintel has used the following definitions:
This Report monitors the consumer market for kitchen furniture through all channels. Estimates include retail sales to consumers plus trade sales via local traders, including builders and interior design specialists. Market sizes reflect this clarification of the Report’s definition.
The Report addresses fitted and freestanding kitchen furniture, including:
- Storage units such as cupboards, shelving and dressers
- Work surfaces
- Chairs and stools.
The kitchen furniture market consists of both single furniture items and complete fitted systems. The latter frequently includes non-furniture items, such as sinks and taps (plumbing supplies), as well as appliances bought as part of a kitchen and installation costs. Nevertheless, these non-furniture items are integral to the price charged for a fitted kitchen, and are covered in this Report. Inevitably it is not straightforward to separate out retail and trade sales; the data shown in the Report represents Mintel’s best estimates of the consumer market for kitchens. There is also an element of unquantifiable overlap with dining room furniture in the area of tables and chairs.
