Introducing VISI Special Edition: Kitchens Vol. 4

VISI’s latest special issue offers inspiration and design inspiration for your new kitchen.

Whether you’re looking at building an all-new kitchen, or just revamping or freshening up your existing one, you’re definitely holding the right magazine in your hand. This special edition of VISI draws on our expertise and industry networks to bring you all the new trends, expert advice and insider tips you’ll need to plan your new kitchen.

This issue of VISI Kitchens focuses on five trending styles that we have called:

  • COTTAGE CORE A return to the classic, homely, cosy and beautifully functional kitchen.
  • MATERIAL WHIRL Richly contrasting finishes and fixtures with an accent on natural materials.
  • VINTAGE INDUSTRY All about personal touches, unusual juxtapositions, and a lack of the conventional and built-in.
  • COLOURING UP For fans of colour, with green and blue the two most popular shades in 2023.
  • LIVE-IN KITCHEN Squarely at the centre of any home, reflecting our ongoing desire to both simplify and optimise our lives.

Along with highlighting the essential elements of each emerging trend and illustrating them with many inspirational examples, we’ve also got a host of tips from specialists on how to execute the look, plus info on where you can shop to get the look. In addition to the five key aesthetic directions above, we’ve also identified 10 micro-trends that have caught our attention – from colour blocking and open shelves to eye-catching lighting and modular marvels.

And there’s more: we’ve also brought you expert advice on the key elements of any new kitchen build. Read what interior design professionals have to say about choosing handles and flooring, ergonomics and spatial design,

storage, and prioritising your budget. The kitchen is a special place in any home – an informal, warm, social space where friends and family naturally congregate – and I hope this inspires you to create your dream kitchen.
