Kitchen painted with a pale purple paint colour

Purple paint might seem like an unconventional choice for decorating a kitchen, but this captivating colour family makes it easy to reimagine any interior. Elegant and sophisticated, purple shades have an unmistakable regal quality, making them a great option if you’re out to make a statement.

However, you don’t need to go with dark purple paint and saturated shades when painting those kitchen walls. More muted tones like lilac are a gorgeous alternative to warm neutrals or contemporary greys. 

There’s a surprising amount of variety when it comes to purple paint colours, meaning you'll find the ideal hue to use alongside your dream decor and favourite furniture styles. Use deep purple paint and high-gloss black for a modern kitchen makeover, or add nuance by pairing it with off-white or a chalky neutral. 

Ready to start playing around with purple? Read on for some of the first purple shades in our range that you can add to your basket today. 

If you want to ease in slowly with purple, it’s best to start with a more muted shade like Seraphic. This pale fuchsia might be less overwhelming than other purples, but it still makes quite the impression. If you’ve been looking for an elegant alternative to grey or chalky white, you might have found it here. 

This versatile fuchsia works well in contemporary kitchens with modern details. However, it can also serve as a classic backdrop for a more traditional space. 

If you’re a fan of lilac, you’ll love this subtle purple shade. With its beautiful blooming qualities, this light purple paint colour is a fine choice for smaller kitchens that need opening up with a lighter hue. 

However, it can also be used to create a beautiful blank canvas in a larger, more contemporary kitchen. Use it as a primary colour or introduce other shades of purple to create a stunning tonal interior. 

As crisp and refreshing as the name suggests, February Frost is a light and icy take on silvery purple, enriched with a hint of mulberry. It might be a lighter shade, but this colour doesn’t disappoint when it comes to purple intensity. 

If you’re only looking for a single signature colour for a room, this silvery purple works well. However, it looks even better when paired with periwinkle-infused hues or anything picked from the blue or grey families. 

Looking for cooler hues for your kitchen redesign? A soft shaded lilac like Frosted Lilac is a superb choice. With its beautiful blend of purple pigment and icy tones, this paint colour will inject intensity into any kitchen. 

It’s saturated enough that you can use it as a single colour, without the need for any additional hues. However, it pairs beautifully with just about any other of our shades of purple. Classic accents like white and muted grey will also work nicely with a purple wall coated in this luxurious lilac. 

If you prefer darker purples, a saturated shade like Violet Verbena is guaranteed to catch your eye. Although it’s a darker take on purple, this majestic mulberry hue won’t overwhelm a smaller kitchen. It’s a good choice if you want to transform your cooking area into a more intimate space. 

You can use it on its own or as just one shade in a kaleidoscope of passionate purples. Use this one alongside shaded berry hues for a terrific tonal effect, or play to its subdued strengths by introducing grey or brown hues

It might be slightly subdued, but this blueish-purple will bring bags of colour to your kitchen. A quintessentially feminine hue, Sleeping Violet is perfect for bringing a soothing energy to your kitchen, making it the perfect colour to combat busy mornings in hectic households. 

When it comes to pulling together a complete colour palette, you have a few inspired options. Try using periwinkle-blue shades or mulberry purples for a more sophisticated scheme, or stick to pure whites and ultra-subtle neutrals instead. 

A demure choice that will bring an elegant finish to your kitchen walls, Cotton Flannel is an instant classic. This monarch purple shade will work beautifully as part of a neutral kitchen scheme, with its saturated bluish quality bringing a calming energy to your spaces. 

This blue-infused purple is surprisingly versatile. You can pair it with classic white countertops and cream-coloured wood units, although it works just as well alongside dusty pinks and subtle violets. You can choose to put purple front and centre or experiment with daring contrasts. For a more eclectic colour combination, consider experimenting with orange and yellow.

Dusty purples don’t have to be reserved for the bedroom. In fact, a saturated purple hue like Mauve Whisper can prove the perfect choice for a kitchen. It will bring all those inspiring qualities you want from a purple, without overwhelming your cooking space with too much colour. 

If your kitchen is rather small, think about saving this one for a feature wall. You can use a lighter hue like lavender, dusty pink or even a cool grey to take care of the rest of your surfaces.

Midtone purples are ideal if you’re someone who’s not afraid of this refined colour family. A luxurious concord purple like Lilac Time is one such hue, with this timeless paint colour making a welcome addition to any kitchen wall. 

It’s a versatile option, pairing effortlessly with traditional cabinetry or stripped-back shaker units. However, it can also enhance a contemporary kitchen furnished in a minimalist style with high-gloss counters and chrome accents. 

Do you want to play around with purple, but want to avoid the usual floral-inspired hues? Take another look at Ash Grove. This midtone heliotrope purple is enriched with subtle notes of raspberry, rather than the lilac and lavender tints of other purple paint colours. 

Once you’ve decorated your kitchen walls, it’s time to think about internal door and ceiling paint. While you can stick with classic white, you can enhance the qualities of this eye-catching purple by choosing sandy whites, neutral taupes or shaded beiges instead.
