A livelier housing market is helping improve consumer confidence so that more people are moving house and more home owners are updating their properties. In 2014 sales of fitted kitchens grew by some 4.6% and 2015 is shaping up to be a year with similar growth.
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.
There is a fashion for bigger, open kitchen spaces as well as more open-plan kitchen/living areas in the home. We are seeing kitchens creating a hub for entertaining, eating and family leisure time at home. So people want stylish kitchens which are both practical and are pleasant places to spend time and to receive guests.
