As the cooler months have well and truly set in and the festive season approaches, at this time of year we’re used to spending even more time in our homes. With Christmas baking and festive feasts on the horizon, the attention can very often turn to our kitchens, where a much-needed upgrade can certainly be in order as a new year approaches. With a variety of kitchen designs catching our eye this season, the team at Purple has decided to share their top five favourite styles to suit a variety of home design schemes, to ensure that as 2021 approaches, your home looks its best. Howdens Kitchens don’t have to just be practical. Although it’s hugely important to have a functional kitchen space that works for your family life, having fun and playing around with colour can help to bring personality to this important room in your home. We are big fans of this navy design from Howdens, incorporating colour and style together to create a unique take on the kitchen living space. With pink tones used to complement the navy worktop doors, and other complementary colours used throughout to highlight additional accent shades, this kitchen doesn’t just stand tall in the style stakes. Being styled using the owner’s preferences and input, this kitchen design will last for years to come, and will make for a fun, playful addition to the family home. Wren Kitchens ‘Structured simplicity’ and the desire for streamlined kitchen spaces are said to continue to be a trend for this part of the home in 2021. A minimalist approach to kitchen design will still be a popular choice for homeowners looking to create a kitchen that will stand the test of time. Light hues, along with marble effect worktops will bring a touch of sophistication and glamour to the space, with gold hardware and other accessories used to tie in the look together effortlessly. This particular design, created by the team at Wren Kitchens, certainly ticks all the boxes when it comes to design-conscious interiors, and will work in both contemporary and traditional looking homes. With the clever use of colour and complementary tones, this kitchen design will bring light and life to any type of kitchen shape and space; a must-have style for the upcoming new year. Benchmarx Malvern As the night’s draw in and the winter months mean grey skies and dull weather, a lovely bright kitchen can certainly lift your home, and your spirits, during these dark days. One of our favourite kitchen designs for November has to be one that fits the bill colour palette-wise, and this galley kitchen installed by Benchmarx Malvern does just that. With a light hardwood flooring, and stone grey kitchen cupboard fronts in keeping with the neutral colour palette, the white worktops finish off this design with a hint of modernity. With sleek, simple metal hardware and all the mod-cons every kitchen space should have, this style will certainly stand the test of time for the homeowner. CK Kitchens Dark surfaces are a key trend for 2021, so, as the new year approaches, is it time to go to the dark side with your kitchen design? And a design that certainly matches a modern aesthetic is this stunning layout by the team at CK Kitchens. In an unusual graphite shade, this design brings all the style points of a dark kitchen, without the starkness of a black, monochrome colour palette. A particularly modern option, this kitchen design focuses on simplistic elements, removing the need for metal handles and hardware. Removing these accents still allow for a fully functional kitchen, but this modern twist will certainly appeal to those looking for a contemporary look. Abbey Kitchens We’re big fans of the look of marble here at Purple, and paired with on-trend flooring and bright white kitchen cupboards, this kitchen design has been styled to perfection. A carefully considered kitchen design can really help to bring the feeling of light and space, even to a cramped area. This is where a white, monochromatic colour scheme can really come into its own, helping to breathe new life, and light, into any sized space. With the marble pattern synonymous with the stone being a key focal point in this design, the look of luxury certainly comes through with this kitchen styling, adding a premium finish to any particular space.
