Highlights from the findings include:

  • Seventy-five percent of respondents chose to purchase from a retail outlet where they "could see and touch the products in the showroom"

  • Consumers love their ovens - 86% purchased an oven as part of their kitchen refit

  • Less than 10% of respondents were interested in shopping for kitchen products which were in a sale or on special offer

  • Online reviews are more influential than verbal recommendation in five out of eight kitchen product categories.
