Consumer Shopping Habits for the Home: An Overview

As consumer confidence recovers slowly, we see that more consumers are feeling optimistic when planning to spend on the home in the upcoming months; as bigger-ticketed projects like kitchen refits and home extension have made slight gains in the last year. Home retailers may be forced to raise prices again due to extended shipping journeys. However, this opens up an opportunity for retailers to develop their local manufacturing operations across the UK.

  • Home market size: Mintel forecasts that the value of the home market will reach £87 billion in 2028.

Spending on the Home Market: Challenges and Opportunities

Role of technology in the home

Technology can help home retailers better support the customer journey as we see retailers roll out AI assistants to support technology connect home improvement projects to providing tips to be more energy-efficient or allowing consumers to better see how a piece of furniture will look in their living space.

  • Consumer shopping habits for the home: 55% of consumers are purchasing more sustainable home products in the last 12 months than they would have otherwise done.

Flexible payment schemes

In times of economic uncertainty, we see many delaying spending on bigger-ticketed items. Some home retailers have addressed this concern by rolling out instalment payment methods and buy now pay later (BNPL) payment methods.

  • Home market statistics: 40% of consumers agree that BNPL is a valuable budgeting tool.
