Pent-up demand in the market

“The fact that we are selling so many copies and reaching so many Australians at this time is a good sign of things to come,” said Publisher Janice Williams.

“There is only one reason consumers buy Kitchens & Bathrooms Quarterly – they are planning for an impending project.

“The vision is there for many Australians at the moment, but many are choosing to pay down mortgages or pay off credit card debt before spending.  As more optimism springs back in to the property market, we foresee a busy period for the kitchen and bathroom industry.”
