Homeowners prioritise the kitchen for renovation more than any other room

The new Home Wrenovation Survey reveals that almost 50% of all households give more attention to renovating and decorating their kitchens than any other room in their house. 

Kitchens are seen as the centrepiece of the home, where we do everything from socialising and cooking, to watching television and completing work. Add in all of the extra work involved in crafted and installing a kitchen and you start to understand why we give this room the most attention. Off course, you find the kettle in the kitchen, and whatever room you're working on, the kettle is one of the most important tools of any tradesperson or DIYer!

Around 63% of the 1,788 people surveyed also said that the kitchen is the room they spend the most money on when renovating or decorating. Just 8% of homeowners said that the bathroom was their biggest renovation expense.

The survey also found that 91% of UK households within the £70,000-£80,000 salary bracket redecorate yearly.

Just over 50% of those surveyed said that they would do DIY tasks themselves, whereas 27% said they would hire someone and 22% said their partner would do the work.

Interestingly, the largest age bracket that stated they would take on DIY tasks themselves was those aged 18-24, with 95% of homeowners in that bracket stating they would get involved in DIY tasks. As people get older, busier and richer, they are much more likely to hire someone to do the job.

Construction Products Increase for Eighth Consecutive Quarter

The latest Construction Trade Survey, published 13th May by the Construction Products Association, shows that firms across the construction industry reported an eighth consecutive quarter of growth in activity in the first quarter of 2015. 

Construction products manufacturers, large contractors, SMEs and civil engineers all enjoyed growth in output in Quarter 1, and further expansion is anticipated throughout 2015. It is encouraging times for the whole industry and opportunities should be grasped.

Are you looking for a sales or marketing job in the construction products industry? >>>

Commenting on the survey, Dr Noble Francis, Economics Director at the Construction Products Association, said, “Activity rose in the first quarter of 2015 compared to a year earlier according to 50% of contractors, on balance. Furthermore, increases in orders and enquiries indicate that the construction industry’s longest expansionary streak in six years is set to continue over the next 12 months.

“Increased activity was led by the private housing sector, in which 54% of firms, on balance, reported a rise in output.  Increased output was also reported in private commercial, the largest construction sector, where 23% of firms, on balance, reported rising volumes of offices and retail work.

“This momentum is set to continue, as it was in the private housing and commercial sectors that contractors registered growth in order books in Q1. Specialist contractors and SMEs also reported a noticeable upturn in new enquiries in the quarter.

“Increased activity over the last two years has widely translated into higher tender prices, but contractors, SMEs and civil engineers also reported elevated costs on the labour and materials side, which in turn are squeezing profit margins. Only product manufacturers reported a significant benefit from the downward movements in fuel, energy and exchange rate costs.

“A balance of 81% of contracting firms experienced cost increases during Q1 and 63% reported an increase in labour costs. In addition, 59% of contractors reported difficulties in recruiting plasterers in Q1 and 56% experienced difficulties in the availability of bricklayers. Ongoing difficulties in recruiting skilled on-site trades will contribute to this upward pressure on costs.”

Stephen Ratcliffe, Director UKCG, said, “The continued growth in construction reported by the latest survey is encouraging, and hopefully the clear general election result will help minimise any impact on work pipelines. Rising costs continue to reflect skills shortages, and the need to focus on recruiting and training new people into the industry.”

Richard Beresford, Chief Executive of the National Federation of Builders, added, “Companies are finding that prices agreed during leaner times have risen and are eroding profits, despite a rise in orders. With the industry entering a growth period, companies must take a longer term view when setting prices to ensure their survival.”

Dr Diana Montgomery, Chief Executive of the Construction Products Association, concluded, “Surveys from the CPA, wider industry and independent sources indicate that the UK construction recovery appears set to continue through 2015.  Despite rising costs and general election uncertainties, enquiries and orders are clearly translating into activity on the ground and contributing to steady and consistent growth.”

Key survey findings include:

  • 50% of building contractors, on balance, reported that construction output rose in the first quarter of 2015 compared with a year ago
  • Private housing output rose in Q1 according to 54% of building contractors, on balance
  • 23% of building contractors, on balance, reported that private commercial output rose in the first quarter of 2015 compared with a year ago
  • 9% of building contractors reported a fall in both housing and non-housing repair and maintenance output in Q1, on balance
  • 9% of contractors, on balance, reported a rise in orders for private housing in Q1
  • Orders in the private commercial sector increased according to 25% of contractors, on balance
  • Public housing orders decreased in Q1 according to 45% of building contractors, on balance
  • 63% of firms reported labour costs rose and 81% of firms reported that materials costs rose in Q1 compared with the previous quarter
  • 59% of building contractors reported difficulties recruiting plasterers in Q1 compared with 31% in Q4

Does the trade press have a future in the building industry?

During the last few years, there has been a distinct shift in how manufacturers, distributors and merchants of building products promote and communicate with their increasingly diverse audiences. 

The global recession has been one of the reasons for this, but perhaps the major contributing factor has been the growth in usage and value of the Internet and associated electronic media. This has dramatically changed the landscape of how marketing departments operate and spend their budgets, and also how industry professionals find out about products and are educated on their benefits and applications.

Electronic media, with its seemingly cost-effective, instant and more direct and interactive communication methods, has hit the printed media hard, as they have suffered from reduced advertising revenue and some, like ‘What’s New in Building’, have sadly folded. 

So where now for the building industry printed trade press?

It was apparent from our feature on selling and marketing to the independent building trades, that magazines are still a key sales and marketing tool for communicating with specifiers, distributors, developers, contractors, installers and end-users of building products. This is good news for the publishers, but they must not take their future for granted. 

In the latest in our series of interviews with people from the building industry, we look at the changing role of the trade press: why it is still a vital communication platform, what it must do to remain so, and why it is crucial that the whole industry continues to support printed media as it strives to remain relevant.

To add clarity from the eye of the hurricane, we discussed these issues with Andy Costin, Group Advertising Manager of one of the leading and most respected publications in the industry - Professional Builder Magazine, published by the Hamerville Group.

Andy is an expert in the field, having worked at Hamerville for over 28 years, during which time he has witnessed the evolution from printing press to digital printing and the current electronic media age of the Internet. 

Advertising strategies have changed 
Manufacturers have changed their promotional strategies since the recession and the biggest effect on the magazines, according to Andy, has been the reduction of block bookings of advertising space. 

“Probably the single major change has been the reluctance of clients to place schedules. These have become less and less, meaning long-term campaign planning is a rare occurrence and bookings are more ad-hoc, reactive or very much geared to just short-term campaigns.”

“It has been difficult to fully judge the effect of the advent of the digital age on the printed press since 2007 and how much was due to the recession and would’ve happened anyway.”

“Professional Builder has had to slim down from 200 pages in the boom times of early 2007, but is now, thankfully, getting back up towards those levels again.” 

Remember the whole industry needs to help each other for mutual benefit
If you ask anyone in a marketing job in the building products industry, most will say that they’ve had to operate on tighter marketing budgets.

Of course, display advertising in magazines is one of the easiest ways to reduce expenditure, but as companies still want page coverage, it has meant that the amount of press releases and article submissions has increased. 

Andy believes that this is a double-edged sword as, to survive, the trade press need display advertising to fund and produce high quality and relevant publications that are read by the audience advertisers want to reach.  

“In many ways, as harsh as it may sound, some manufacturers are damaging themselves - they want to enjoy the advantages of good editorial coverage, but will soon complain when a once effective and valuable publication loses its quality, becomes too small or goes out of business.”

This is just one of the reasons why the industry must support the trade press, but it’s not just down to the industry to support the press, the press must give them a 
reason to.

Embrace other methods of communication
If the trade press sits back and does not change, then there will be more casualties and ultimately the whole industry will suffer. 

In order to remain relevant and in-tune with the industry, publishers need to adapt and innovate to offer greater value and change their communication methods.

The Hamerville Group is embracing the threat of the Internet by using it as an opportunity to develop as a media group, but more importantly to offer their readers and advertisers a more complete package. 

“At Professional Builder, we have enhanced our website and in addition to news and competitions, we include video demonstration guides to help our readers and features on issues not in the printed magazine.”

“We also promote via our social media channels and through our regular e-letter. Our electronic communications are designed to enhance the experience for our readers and provide them with more detailed information and resources than is possible in the magazine.”

“However, they complement each other and work as a package. Often the magazine encourages our readers to seek further information from our website, or conversely the website encourages people to pick up the magazine and benefit from our guides, competitions and information contained within the printed magazine.”

“Overall, our brand value is enhanced with the web, allowing us to comment and react to live issues and news, rather than having to wait for the next issue and at the same time the magazine grows in popularity, as awareness and interest is also enhanced.” 

Andy also explains that this approach is not only good for the reader but for advertisers too: “It allows our advertisers to exploit the best of both worlds - they can reach their target audience in the merchant, at home and on-site via mobiles and tablets.”

“We also organise trade exhibitions, so the builders and installers can see the products for themselves and meet the manufacturers and merchants, allowing closer relationships to be developed.”

“At Hamerville we see everything as an opportunity to improve our overall offering; magazines that view it as a threat will be precisely the ones that will become threatened.”

Evolve and understand how you can benefit your readers
Professional Builder, like its sister titles Professional Electrician and Professional Plumbing & Heating Installer, are aimed at the small to medium trades. They are distributed on the trade counter in Jewson, SIG, Travis Perkins, CCF, Keyline, Buildbase and most of the independent merchants. 

As with all products and services, companies need to understand what their customers want and if a magazine becomes indispensable to its readers, then the advertisers and contributors will want to continue to be involved in its production. 

“It is vital to know your readership, understanding how they operate and what they want - our research and experience has shown that the digital forms of communication do not fully address their needs and we have to fill that gap by offering them something different.” says Andy.

Many marketers will argue that they can advertise using banner ads on relevant websites; promote their products and services via social media channels and direct email with informative and highly targeted messages. In most cases, these options will allow the interested person to be directed to a relevant page of the advertiser’s website, where they will be able interact and benefit from the resources and tools that are usually found on the best sites in the industry. 

However, many believe this approach lacks soul and substance and is not necessarily the preferred or sole communication method required for all target audiences - many self-employed contractors don’t want to spend their evenings online after a tiring day on-site.

The building industry is still very much a physical industry, where communicating in person and seeing or trying products yourself is preferred over a photograph. Trust is built in-store and this helps to increase brand loyalty. 

It is Andy’s view that, although there has been a growth in internet/mail order companies (and they have their place) they will never truly meet the real and practical needs of the small to medium tradesperson - this includes less flexibility on payment options and credit facilities.

“Our readership would not be able to survive on just online or telephone ordering.  Many of our readers have home offices and other than a van and maybe a garage, they do not have much storage space. They need the flexibility of being able to go to a merchant and collect the required goods on their way to the job/project they are working on. It is also a common occurrence that goods will be needed on-site either as an emergency or unexpectedly during a job and waiting for next day delivery is not an option.”

Customers also need physical interaction and at a merchant this happens between the different trades, sometimes resulting in business and referrals being made – it almost becomes their place of business. A tasty cuppa and a bacon roll can often be found nearby and is always a welcome benefit!

These are just some of the reasons why the physical merchant is still key and certainly for the audience of Professional Builder, it is clear why communicating with them via the trade press is more appropriate for their needs, especially when it’s available to pick-up in-store. 

According to Andy the message is clear: “Do what is appropriate for your readers. Make sure you know them, find out their habits and develop something that they want and which speaks to them. They will then want to read your magazine, as it becomes an important part of their job.”

Try and be the ingredient that binds the audience together
For the manufacturer, the merchant and the installers, the trade press should be the link that opens communication lines between all three.  

The manufacturers need their products to be stocked and for awareness and interest to be generated with the installers or specifiers; the showroom or counter staff at the merchant needs to be educated and aware of their benefits.

A magazine can help do this, especially one available at source. As Andy explains: “If an installer has seen a product in a magazine like Professional Builder, they’re more likely to notice it on the shelf in a merchant and look at it or trial it, especially after reading a product testing feature which we regularly have in the magazine. They are also more likely to be aware of promotions or attend in-store trials, which manufacturers often run. In short, we try and become an invaluable conduit between all parties - the glue for the industry.”

As a magazine, you should never expect bookings or take it for granted. Offering ‘added-value’ is a common phrase in today’s business world and Andy advises the trade press to help its advertisers further and identify where they need assistance.

“We now offer far greater assistance in campaign planning, especially now that we can provide a multi-platform package with the magazine, website, social media, e-letters, and exhibitions. Our experience also allows us to provide unique guidance on design and what works in adverts. We have perhaps the best knowledge of these based on fact - we even offer a design service for our clients, which we know will communicate effectively with our readership.” 

From our conversation with Andy, a key theme throughout was that all parts of the industry must work and support each other. The industry survives on collaboration, education, awareness, opinion, availability, development and communication – the trade press is needed and would be missed if it disappeared. 

Not a death but a rebirth 
Although the Internet and email certainly cannot be described as a fad, it is perhaps becoming a little congested and people are indifferent to the sheer volume of messages. If you received an email twenty years ago, it was novel, but had impact and was often useful or informative. At the same time, the amount of letters and junk notices arriving in your letterbox had become a nuisance. 
Today there are signs of a revitalisation of the printed word and physical letter; mail shots stand out again for their use of visuals, convenience and ability to capture our attention. Conversely, we often delete, with one click, massive amounts of “junk” and promotional email, often unread. 

The music industry is experiencing a similar rebirth: vinyl is in demand again and consumers are showing their enjoyment of and desire for more through significant increases in physical record purchases. This is evidence that the best forms of communication do not fade away and die, they just change, adapt and then find their place again. 

This will be the case with the trade press - the future will be different, but it must be relevant and important, something with which Andy concurs and concludes: 

“Those that listen, innovate, adapt and plan for the future will still be reaping the benefits for many years to come and building their audiences in a professional way. The rumours of the printed trade press’ death have been greatly exaggerated!”

Thank you to Andy for his valuable time and insight.

UK Construction continues to grow, but slowing says CIPS

The UK construction industry grew at its slowest pace in nearly two years during April according to the CIPS/Markit Construction Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI).

Although it fell to 54.2 in April from 57.8 a month earlier, any reading above 50 indicates growth, while below 50 points to contraction. So we are still in growth, but the growth is slowing.

The figures indicate "a sharp slowdown" at the start of the second quarter, Markit said. One of the reasons, it added, is that some construction firms said spending decisions were being delayed ahead of the general election.

While the latest survey results suggested the construction industry was seeing "solid overall expansion", the pace of growth slowed even in the residential building sub-sector of the industry, which has driven industry-wide growth for most of the last two years.

New business growth has now slowed in eight of the past 10 months, Markit said, but construction firms said underlying conditions remained favourable.

Job creation in the sector remained robust in April, although the rate at which staff were being hired was still slower than the average in 2014, Markit added.

The latest survey comes just a week after the Office for National Statistics (ONS) released its first estimate of economic growth for the three months to the end of March, which showed growth slowed to 0.3%.

That was largely on the back of a slump in construction output, which fell 1.6% in the first quarter. That was its second successive quarterly fall, meaning the construction sector is technically in recession.

Tim Moore, senior economist at Markit, blamed uncertainty over the outcome of the general election, with building firms pointing to delays in client budget setting and a reduced commitment to building projects.

He said: "Despite experiencing pre-election risk aversion among clients in April, construction companies indicated a strong degree of confidence regarding the year-ahead outlook. As a result, job hiring was robust and little-changed since March, placing further pressure on skilled staff availability.

"Taken as a whole, the latest survey presents a far more upbeat picture than the curiously weak official construction output data for the first quarter of 2015."

UK kitchen furniture market set to reach £1.83bn by 2019 says new report

A new report by AMA Research has revealed that the UK domestic kitchen furniture market is forecast to grow by around 4-5% per year and could be worth £1.83bn by 2019. Great news for the KBB sector.

The Domestic Kitchen Furniture Market Report – UK 2015-2019 Analysis estimates that the market grew by 4% last year, influenced by a move towards open-plan living, and an emphasis on aesthetics and stylish designs. 

If you are interested in a sales job in the KBB sector, find out more...

Key issues that have influenced the UK domestic kitchen furniture market in recent years include the blurring of distinction between the kitchen and dining room, with less formality in the home and a move towards open plan living, an emphasis on aesthetics and stylish designs, with a move towards curved lines, rather than the traditional straight line concept and a trend for sleek, minimalist contemporary designs. 

An increasing number of manufacturers are offering units to suit the needs of elderly or infirm customers and this trend is likely to continue as the proportion of the UK population in older age groups increases.

The kitchen furniture market according to our definition comprises furniture, worktops and sinks, with furniture accounting for almost 80% of the market in value terms. Worktops had gradually gained market share before the recession affected the market, driven by the trend towards higher value products in this sector, particularly granite, quartz and other composites. However, in the last few years market conditions have squeezed consumer spending power, and similarly the sinks sector has been slower to recover from the recent downturn in the market. 

Demand for design features in the kitchen seems to be recovering and this should increase the importance of both worktops and sinks, which can create high visual impact. The popularity of dishwashers has contributed towards changing the use of a sink from an area simply for washing up, to a multi-functional work centre, which incorporates features for washing, food preparation and drainage. However, the penetration of dishwashers in UK households remains relatively low at around 40%, particularly when compared with penetration levels in mainland Europe.

Technological developments in the tap sector, such as pull-out spray taps and water filtration systems, have also added value to the market, along with the growth in popularity of waste disposal units in the sinks sector, as increasing emphasis is placed on waste separation and recycling.

The kitchen furniture market is currently dominated by a relatively small number of larger UK based suppliers. Imports of kitchen furniture declined significantly from 2008 to reach £99m in 2011 and have remained at around that level since then. Imports currently account for around 9-10% of the kitchen furniture market (excluding worktops and sinks), with Germany and Italy being the major sources. The distribution structure has now settled down somewhat after the sharp fall in the share held by the multiple furnishing groups, due to the closure of MFI. 

The total market for kitchen furniture is forecast to show relatively strong growth of around 4-5% per annum in the short to medium term future and is estimated to reach a level of £1.83bn by 2019. However, in the short term margins could be squeezed further by the increasing cost of raw materials such as chipboard, as well as metal components such as aluminium, steel and so on. The sale of kitchens with installation included is likely to continue to increase.

“The worktop sector is expected to achieve good growth in the medium term, primarily due to a gradual shift to higher quality materials” said Keith Taylor, Director of AMA Research. “However, prospects for the sinks market are only modestly positive, despite the development of higher value products in both the sink and tap sectors of the market.” 

Higher levels of new build in both the private and public sectors are expected to support growth in the kitchen market in the future, however, the high proportion of flats and smaller houses may impact on the average value of kitchen furniture installed in this sector in the longer term. In the medium term, growth prospects will be largely influenced by the speed at which the housing market continues to recover.
