DIY Week is a British fortnightly business-to-business magazine for those in the do it yourself (DIY), household hardware and homeware market. The magazine is published by Datateam in Maidstone, Kent, in England.
Founded in 1874, DIY Week is sold to retailers of hardware, housewares, garden and DIY products, and their suppliers, and contains news, comment, financial analysis and market trend information.
Originally launched by a Birmingham hardware wholesaler as Martineau & Smith's Monthly Circular, the magazine was very soon renamed Hardware Trade Journal, and changed from monthly to weekly publication in 1900. Over the following decades it became the major business magazine for its market, absorbing its main competitor, The Ironmonger, as well as many small titles. It was renamed DIY Week in 1988, reflecting the rise of the DIY market, and switched to fortnightly frequency in 1991.
Datateam acquired the magazine in 2013.
