Closing the Sale: Shifting Trends in Kitchen & Bath Sales

When most think of Kitchen and Bath trends, they think of Black being the new grey, smart showers and toilets, or lighter hardwood colors. More important to the General Contractor, is with a significant shift impacting the market recently, who will be selling the project tomorrow? And, who’s ready to take a bigger share…

In a Lowe’s Home Improvement news release on 1/4/19, a decision was publicized to cancel the national PSI Kitchen and Bath remodeling program. The impact of this will be far reaching, including the loss of position for over 1,800 PSI store employees (Project Specialist Interiors), as well as a large market segment of homeowners trying to determine where to shop for their next Kitchen or Bath remodel project. Some will continue to utilize Lowe’s installation services for a smaller version of their renovation, and some will still seek a qualified General Contractor as a one-stop-shop to complete their dream Kitchen or Bath.

The question is, if you are that contractor, will you be ready to meet client’s expectations and seize this opportunity?
