Outdoor Living

Spring is here! Or, at least, that’s how it feels as soon as the temperature rises above 12 degrees! Now there is the glimpse of a summer where friends can come over for a barbecue, and sit in the garden, why not consider an outdoor kitchen space where you can eat and entertain!

Outdoor entertaining has been touted by Houzz as a soaring trend in 2021 with the number of searches for ‘outdoor kitchen’ ‘firepits’ and ‘summerhouses’ increasing over the last year.  After a year indoors it is no surprise that everyone is more than keen to be out and about as much as possible – so why not get your home outdoor entertainment ready?

What’s more gardens that extend the entertainment are also growing with popularity of outdoor dining and pizza ovens soaring. Purple have supplied and fit some gorgeous outdoor kitchens complete with wood fired pizza ovens and integrated barbecues, we can accommodate any shape or space and our expert templaters can work alongside you in achieving the perfect outdoor area. 

One of the integral features of al fresco dining is preparation space. Having a granite or quartz outdoor space to prepare food means that you have an easy-to-clean space that also looks great! Where wood retains water and discolours, Quartz is highly durable and resistant to stains. Granite is highly heat resistant, perfect for where you’ll be serving straight from the barbecue. 

Indoor/Outdoor Living –

Not one for bracing the great English weather? Indoor-outdoor living could be just up your street!

Adding and maximising natural light in your kitchen can completely change the feel of the space. In addition, using ‘natural’ colours such as greens and greys throughout the kitchen can compliment your choice of stone as well as combining the colours of the outside, in your kitchen! Houzz’s 2021 trend report also detailed the growing interest in ‘nature-inspired palettes’ which compliment this indoor-outdoor vibe!

We can source almost any stone and have a massive range of products available. Our team are on hand to make your worktop the fun and easy part of the kitchen process, let us know how we can help you by sending your kitchen plans to sales@purplegranite.co.uk or calling 01562549100 now!
