Purple kitchen cabinets
Make a statement with purple kitchen cabinets, which work well with modern, traditional and shaker-style kitchens.
Go for deep purple cabinets and black flooring and countertops for a striking, almost gothic appearance. Or keep things light and airy by matching periwinkle purple cabinets with white countertops and white walls.
You could go for an ultra-sleek, contemporary look by choosing purple kitchen units without handles, or play with a country look with farmhouse-style cabinets in a warm and welcoming shade such as heather.
If you’re not quite sure about full-on purple, you could opt for a shade with grey undertones. This will make it easy to pair with grey accessories for a coordinated purple and grey kitchen. Grey painted walls, tiled flooring and a grey splashback will help to tone down the brightness of the purple to create an inviting kitchen that’s sure to become the heart of your home.
You could, of course, also mix and match your purple cabinets, for instance, opting for bright base cabinets - in your choice of purple, from amethyst to aubergine - and white wall units. This is a particularly good choice if you have a smaller space, as the white on top will draw the eye upwards, creating an expansive feel to your room.
Whether you’re adding purple kitchen units, or simply want to add a pop of colour with some purple kitchen decor, we think that flooring is a great option.
Patterned tiles are a lovely way to brighten up your space and add personality to your room, whether you go for a Mediterranean-inspired design, a modern geometric pattern or a classic style inspired by Victorian design.
Tiles are a great way to add interest to an otherwise neutral room, and they’re also a fantastic way to pull together a colour scheme. So if you have flashes of purple throughout your kitchen as well as another main colour, like grey or white, you can tie it all together in your flooring.
Tiles aren’t the only option, of course. You could also choose to go for purple vinyl flooring, or even stain a wooden floor with your favourite shade of purple.
Whether your kitchen units are purple or you’ve gone for a more neutral tone, you can always introduce your favourite colour into the mix with purple walls.
If you’ve chosen purple cabinets in deep plum or mauve, lighter purple walls will create a beautiful two-tone effect, complementing the darker tones with a light and bright colour that will open up your space.
Patterned wallpaper is also a great way of breaking up the space between your base and wall cabinets, especially if you’ve opted for the same colour for both sets of units. Just ensure that the wallpaper you choose is hard-wearing and durable, and can withstand all the spills and splashes that come with a busy kitchen!
Purple tiles also work well. Subway tiles create a chic, contemporary look whilst patterned tiles add a touch of interest and let you express your personality. Match the tones in your tiles to the cabinets, or create a coordinated look by opting for complementary colours.
Purple kitchen appliances
Don’t spend time and effort making your kitchen look fantastic and then forget all about your appliances.
These often-forgotten elements are a great way to add the finishing touches to your space, and what better way to do that than with purple kitchen appliances?
Whatever shade of purple you’ve chosen for your space, you’ll find a plethora of appliances to match.
Go for a retro-inspired fridge in pastel purple with a matching kettle and toaster, turning your kitchen into a cosy American diner. Or choose sleek and sophisticated appliances in a deep shade that’s reminiscent of sangria.
Purple is a regal colour, symbolising luxury, wisdom, pride and devotion. You want the kitchen to be the heart of your home, and by adding these extra touches like purple kitchen appliances, you’ll be creating a space that the whole family wants to spend time in.
Purple kitchen accessories
Once you’ve got your colour scheme in place, it’s time to add the accessories. This is a great way to bring your own style and personality into your kitchen, and you can go as big or as small as you like.
If you have wall space, picture frames are a lovely way to add a splash of colour. Choose a coordinating set of prints, all framed in the same shade of purple, or go for a gallery wall approach. You could even mix and match different shades of purple for a rainbow effect.
Don’t forget about purple kitchen utensils - it’s all about the little details. If you have open shelving, this is a fantastic way to display utensils and accessories. Pop them all in a vase or jar and set them proudly on your shelves along with some hanging plants.
