Kitchens & Bathrooms Quarterly gives DOUBLE

the Average Issue Readership of Belle Magazine

With an Average Issue Readership of 280,000, Kitchens & Bathrooms Quarterly Magazine has decisively leaped ahead of broader publications like Belle, which languishes at 148,000 according to the latest figures to March 2014 from Enhanced Media Metrics Australia (EMMA). This means Kitchens & Bathrooms Quarterly gives you almost DOUBLE the audience of Belle.

Why is Kitchens & Bathrooms Quarterly performing well on audience size?

“Kitchens and bathrooms are among the most commonly renovated rooms of the home,” said Publisher Janice Williams. “If you look at market data from organisations like the Housing Industry Association (HIA), it is clear that spending on kitchen and bathroom projects specifically drive much of the spending in the home renovation market.

“When it comes to renovating a kitchen or a bathroom, consumers want a level of detail that generalist magazines like Belle can’t provide. Although Belle is a stunning magazine, it just doesn’t serve a market that wants to see lots of Australian design ideas and detailed information to assist with who can help, at what price, and with what products.

“At Universal we publish Research Media – we help consumers do their research and we help businesses target those consumers cost-effectively,” said Ms Williams. “We deliver on the quality of our audience, we deliver on price, and now, according to this latest EMMA research, we deliver on sheer blunt size of audience.”
