Report Highlights

Growth in homewares is linked closely to the UK housing market, which remains largely suppressed both in terms of average values and transaction volumes. While the housing market is weak, growth will remain difficult for homewares retailers as they try to encourage shoppers with restricted budgets so spend on discretionary purchases

Non-specialists are continuing to make their mark on the homewares market, as high footfall into stores, and relevant fashionable ranges provide avenues for growth. While grocers command large amounts of share, their non-food expansion has slowed in recent years, as high fuel prices have prevented shoppers from visiting out of town stores

Dunelm Mill has overtaken longstanding leader John Lewis at the top of the homewares market. Dunelm has focused on store openings, as well as tailoring its ranges to suit a broad range of customers. Its focus on value for money has remained relevant with shoppers throughout the downturn, and resulted in impressive sales increases
