In recent times, the British have been more inclined to improve their homes rather than move. This has meant healthy growth in many furniture and home decorating sectors – including kitchen retailing and fitting. For two years in succession, the UK kitchen furniture industry enjoyed 5% growth, and industry experts are confident this trend will continue. The belief is that sales of kitchen furniture will continue to rise during Brexit negotiations but potentially speed up from 2021 onwards. As the new housing market is also strong in the UK, contract work to supply kitchens in major developments - including public sector properties - is adding further value to this part of the furniture industry. One of the strong trends in this sector is a blurring of the distinction between kitchens and dining rooms, as the British have begun to favour more informal and open plan family eating options. It represents just one of a range of selling opportunities for ambitious entrepreneurs.
One of the other excellent opportunities now available is to piggy back on the success of major players in kitchen design, supply and installation. A number of successful companies have made their winning formula available as a franchise package, providing strong start-up support for new businesses. This includes access to pre-existing product supply chains, help with finding good locations, website support and even a stream of client referrals. You could opt for a franchise with Dream Doors, which helps to renovate existing kitchens. To get the right level of help fixed in place for a new kitchen franchise, get in touch with us.
