The pandemic has forced us to remain for long periods of time in our houses. With this, it is evident that the use of the furniture and common areas has increased in a very big way. We are now in our homes as a measure to prevent the spread of the virus. And, not only that, we want more amenities, more comfort and, above all, that the aesthetics and the design of our furniture and do not lose detail.
An example of this need for change and improvements in our environment has been in the sector of the kitchen, which has grown by almost 12% in the third quarter of the year, according to data collected by the Association of Kitchen Furniture (AMC). In particular, the field of kitchen furniture that stands out the most in sales, reporting a growth of 11,82% in the third quarter of the year, recovering, thus, the impact of the pandemic.
“After months without leaving the house, people are much more aware of the shortcomings of their homes, so that the confinement has been decisive in many cases for people to use to reform their kitchens,” says Juan Luis Salvador, president of AMC. In fact, the reform kitchen tops the list of renovations after the confinement. A few changes, of course, require some preview and study space long before you fall on the most common errors when reforming a kitchen.
In addition, there is no doubt that the Covid has completely changed our way of life, so many people are adapting their kitchens to these new needs and so they are keeping alive the industry of kitchen furniture. A trend that probably comes to stay.
So what augurs well for the AMC, since, even taking into account the slowdown experienced in the second quarter, is expected to maintain the pace of sales to close out the year with some results similar to those of 2019 (in particular 1,47% less), a figure that would not be evil valued taking into account the exceptional circumstances of this 2020.
