6 Exciting Ways to Use Pantone’s Ultra Violet In Your Kitchen

Here are 6 exciting ways to use Pantone’s Ultra Violet in your kitchen. If you haven’t heard, Ultra Violet is Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year. It’s a saturated violet shade that evokes a feeling of creativity and drama.

We’re no stranger to purple here at Livinator. In fact, I predicted this color would be a trend in my February, 2017 article Purple Reign: Create The Ultimate Luxury of a Purple Bedroom.

Ultra Violet is a big commitment. People tend to love purple or hate it. If you do happen to be someplace in the middle, don’t rush out and paint your entire kitchen! Instead, focus on the small updates that will keep you on trend for less long-term.

On the other hand, if you love purple, this is your year! You are officially granted permission to paint your home in your favorite hue without fear of backlash from people who don’t share your passion for purple.

Now that this color is officially a trend, let’s look those 6 ways to use Ultra Violet in the kitchen.


Use pendant lights or chandeliers to light your kitchen.
