Popular Kitchen Style

{Tuscan}

The Italy’s Tuscany region is well known for its beauty, food, wine, and culture. The Tuscan kitchen is a mixture of Italy’s natural elements and rustic textures. Follow these delicious steps to create Painterati’s Popular Kitchen Style – The Tuscan Kitchen:

 

COLOR SCHEMES

The color schemes in a Tuscan style kitchen feature the colors of the region, which are rich and earthy. Include bold yellows, rusty reds, burnt oranges, deep purples, and natural browns in your Tuscan kitchen to create an earthy palette in your kitchen.

 

COUNTERTOPS

Include many light-colored, natural stone materials, like marble, limestone, and granite. Also, include a kitchen island with a wood-surface countertop to add more natural elements to your kitchen. Lastly, any surface that is matte or distressed, or that suggests a “well-used” kitchen is perfect in a Tuscan style kitchen.

 

BACKSPLASHES

Natural-colored brick or colorful, vintage tile is perfect for a Tuscan style kitchen. For a complete Italian look, add a Tuscan tile mural to your backsplash. Brick-style travertine tiles as well as square travertine tiles mixed with diamond-shaped tiles work well in these rustic, Tuscan style kitchens.

 

FLOORING

Install tumbled stone or tile to make your kitchen floor to give your Tuscan kitchen a rich, Italian feel. For a wood floor, consider distressed wood plank flooring to make it look antique. To completely transform your kitchen, add a mosaic board to your stone tiles.

 

CABINETS

Tuscan kitchen cabinets are predominately made of quality wood that is stained to rich brown colors. Cabinet doors tend to have raised panels and decorative wood accents such as ornate hoods, shelves, and cornices. Corner cabinetry and cabinets with under lighting typical feature glass-paneled doors. Ornate iron, bronze, copper, and brass are metals used to complement the wood cabinetry to create the original Italian feel.
