Purple Inspiration For Your Kitchen

When it comes to choosing colour schemes for your kitchen, it’s fair to say that purple certainly isn’t one of the more common options! That’s far from a bad thing though – if anything, it only serves to endow those rarer purple kitchens with an even more stunning wow factor. This week on the blog, we look at the best ways to use purple in your kitchen design, as well as taking you on a quick tour through a magnificent example produced by one of our own designers!

What Does Purple Mean In Kitchen Design?

Purple is a surprisingly versatile colour, and how it makes us feel can depend largely on how light or deep it is. A deeper purple puts us in mind of soft velvet, cultivating an air of richness and luxuriousness. This sort of shade is traditionally reserved for particularly comfortable rooms like living rooms or bedrooms, so choosing it for your kitchen signals to the world that you consider it equally important, if not more – truly fitting for the heart of your home!

Meanwhile, lighter shades of purple like lilac or lavender create a more whimsical, dreamy air – perfect if you want your kitchen to feel more delicate and ladylike. These shades can be beautifully combined with softer greens or turquoises, to give it fascinating visual mystique. Many people choose these sorts of colour schemes for more contemporary kitchens, but purple can also be used together with cream or cashmere cabinetry and kitchen furniture to create a wonderfully cosy traditional kitchen.

Read on, and we’ll show you how one of our own customers has used purple to a fantastically memorable effect in her own kitchen!

Purple Reigns In This Todmorden Kitchen

purple inspiration for your kitchen

Our very own in-house kitchen designer, Maxine, crafted this stunning kitchen for one of our clients in Todmorden. The client in question is very fond of deep purple and rich violet shades – and looking at her kitchen, you can already see how it’s very much a reflection of her personality!

This contemporary kitchen uses purple glass accents and soft, intensely purple fabrics for her kitchen chairs, beautifully offsetting the more neutral tones of the Hacker Cashmere gloss units, and the clean, contemporary shades in the rest of the room. What’s more, you can see how the purple utensils – such as the toaster and kettle – give the room some extra splashes of colour, injecting a fun touch of personality into an already visually striking kitchen!

If this has piqued your interest, you can take a quick look through some of our other case studies, to find inspiration for your own dream kitchen. Or, if you’re thinking perhaps of a different colour, you can check out our blog on how to use red in your kitchen design – which is also complete with one of our amazing case studies, so you can see how it all works in practice!

The Kitchen Design Centre Barrowford is a stunning showroom that occupies three shops on the high street - 4, 5, and 6 Gladstone Terrace.

Mr and Mrs Lowcock recently visited the showroom when they were considering a new kitchen for their busy family home. Mr Lowcock has fond memories of visiting his father’s plumbing shop in 4 Gladstone Terrace, which made the visit quite nostalgic!
The couple chose a Hacker Ravenna Pearl Grey kitchen with bespoke Artista Grey Corian worktops. The main focus of the design was to brighten up the space by using better lighting and natural colors. The addition of practical appliances, including a Quooker boiling tap, made it easy for the multi-generational family to use the kitchen.
