While this sector has low volumes it accounts for almost a third of total fitted kitchen product value at end client buying price, and its performance is a key element of overall market health.

The Luxury Kitchen Market Report provides sector trends in installation numbers and market value, including how sales patterns for the new build and refurbishment streams have differed over the last fifteen years. 

In-depth analysis exclusive to JKMR enables the Luxury Sector to be divided into three segments – Premium, Top End and Stratospheric – based on client spend and looking at their relative performance and outlook. The report provides analysis of which segments are likely to face the greatest challenges over the next 12-24 months, and how external demographic and social factors are changing the nature of luxury purchasing, offering new opportunities but also presenting challenges to both suppliers and retailers at the top end. 

The new report includes comparison of sector sales by major fitted cabinetry suppliers, enabling recent ‘winners and losers’ to be identified and analysis as to why the trading patterns of the traditional ‘big names’ in luxury kitchen supply have seen huge variation.  A detailed breakdown of cabinetry supply trends in the studio sector also highlights how local artisan suppliers are challenging the national players and analyses their attraction to clients. 

This report provides a key tool for suppliers and retailers in the top end of the UK kitchen market by identifying the drivers of sector growth, the most dynamic players and reasons for their success, and new opportunities to aid company growth in a more challenging market.

In order to ensure meaningful sector size JKMR defines the Luxury Kitchen sector as total mainstream fitted kitchen product (ie fitted units, worktops, sink/taps, integrated MDA) spend of at least £30K (ex VAT).  In practice once VAT, ancillary products, free-standing MDAs, tiling, flooring, fitting & decorating costs are factored in, total retail budget starting point would be in the region of £45K.   Data on p15-17 & 21-24 provide further breakdown by more detailed price sector breaks.
