Products covered in this Report
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.
- Furniture sold for non-domestic use
- Kitchens and constituent parts sold to the building trade for installation in new build homes and redevelopments
- Appliances, except those integral to a fitted kitchen
- Second-hand furniture

Consequently, households will invest to create a stylish room, enhanced with lighting, decorative touches and plenty of storage options.
