The BMA and Trend-Monitor last teamed up to research the consumer purchasing journey for bathrooms back in 2018. To say a lot has changed in the world since then is an enormous understatement. We have lived through a global pandemic, a surge in home-working and are still experiencing economic turmoil. Given this tumultuous environment, the aim of the study was to find out if there were any paradigm shifts in consumers’ thinking since 2018.
This research provides solid data from a cohort of consumers that have recently bought a new bathroom. Our findings can help either confirm or debunk some of the assumptions made within the industryTom Reynolds, CEO Bathroom Manufacturers Association
The study was structured to follow the homeowner on their journey from initial awareness of their requirement for a new bathroom, through their purchase decisions, to their final thoughts post-installation. The study also captured demographic and household profiling information.
