UK Kitchen Market – Current Landscape

The market has taken a hit as consumers have reined in their spending. Alongside delaying new purchases until their finances improve, almost two thirds of UK consumers have traded down to more affordable options when buying for the kitchen. There is hope that the market will recover as the economy strengthens, and consumers revisit kitchen renovation projects delayed by the cost-of-living crisis.

  • UK kitchen market size: Consumer spending on kitchens is expected to fall to £4.5 billion in 2023.

UK Kitchens and Kitchen Furniture – Growth Opportunities

The kitchen market continues to benefit from the trend of flexible living, which has reinforced the role of the kitchen as the hub of the home, serving multiple purposes, from cooking to working. In the short term, brands should focus on the consumer demand for space-saving solutions and smaller-ticket projects, until the demand for renovations and bigger-ticket projects picks up again.
