In the UK and Ireland, B&Q's total sales rose slightly, to £3.6bn.
Kingfisher said prospects for the year to come were "bright". The company suffered in the first and third quarters of 2013 but recovered thanks to pricing, marketing, an expanded product range, and upgrades to its websites.
"Our prospects remain bright, giving us confidence to invest in the business and actively manage our portfolio," said chief executive Sir Ian Cheshire.
The results were for the year to January 31 2014.
Highlights for 2014 include 'Teabag Technology' recyclable bedding plant trays, replacing polystyrene trays.
Quarter four highlights were a 100 per cent increase in fence panel sales and 750 times increase in sandbag sales.
