Ikea and Next Top The List Of UK's Favourite Homeware Brands

Since the start of lockdown, due to people spending more time at home, many homeware and interior companies have reported a huge rise in sales and social media brand engagement.


With this in mind, heating, radiator and interior experts Stelrad wanted to ascertain the UK’s favourite brands for all things interior, broken down by item. 

They used a UK top homeware brands study to collate a list of the UK’s 10 most popular homeware brands and used the Semrush Keyword Magic Tool to rank them, by homeware item, in order of most to least searched. They then used the Semrush Keyword Magic Tool to collect data on the most searched homeware brands in relation to products such as cushions, coffee table, sofa etc in order to rank the brands by popularity. 

...the longest standing UK brands such as Next and Ikea never fail to gain popularity with the masses!

Commenting on the research, Chris Harvey, Marketing and Sales Director at Stelrad said:

“It’s always interesting for me to see how brands rank in popularity when it comes to interiors. As this research has suggested, the longest standing UK brands such as Next and Ikea never fail to gain popularity with the masses! Zara and H&M home are popular for getting the latest trends, yes, but the iconic brands never seem to go out of style.”
