If you're thinking of redoing your kitchen, let's face it, purple probably isn't the color that immediately springs to mind. We only have to look back to Ultra Violet being announced as Pantone's color of the year to realize it's not the easiest hue to work with. That being said, the lavender shade is associated with royalty, luxury, and power, all traits that we'd quite happily love our house to represent, right? Well, what better place to start with than your culinary headquarters? Here are seven purple kitchen ideas that will have you rethinking your neutral color scheme.
1. Go two-tone.
There's something in the air at the moment when it comes to two-tone palettes, and this kitchen color idea by Naked Kitchens is an incredibly cool take on both this trend and the uprise in purple interiors. The pastel floor cabinets combined with the deeper plum wall cabinets and plywood panelling make for a contemporary and upbeat space that we'd be more than happy to cook breakfast in.
2. Make it sultry.
3. Embrace all things feminine.
4. Add luxe touches.
5. Keep it natural.
Earthy and organic tones have been big in 2019 but, newsflash, they're not exclusive to terra cotta and sandy hues. Designers at this year's Milan Design Fair took a more dramatic take on the trend, inspired by vegetables no less, such as artichokes and eggplants. The result is simply stunning when matched with wood countertops and rustic details à la this purple kitchen design by deVOL.
6. Keep it simple.
Who knew that a purple kitchen could still look Scandi when used in the right way? In this minimal cook space, color blocking the island and one cabinet adds just the right amount of the bold shade to keep things interesting without taking away from the simplicity of the design made up of bright white and warm wood.
