Tuscan Style Kitchen Renovations
Tuscan kitchen design derives its look from Tuscany, a region in Central Italy known for its attractive landscape, cultural heritage, and culinary tradition. Tuscany style and design kitchens are now increasingly popular as more people discover the comfortable ambiance and historical beauty of Mediterranean kitchens.
Tuscan kitchen style comes from the fabled Italian countryside. Traditional Tuscan kitchen cabinets evoke warmth and elegance, with an emphasis on the joys of cooking and eating. While the entire feeling of a Tuscan kitchen should be family-friendly, the room should feel grand upon entering.
It’s advisable to begin by examining pictures of Tuscany, Italy, when considering a Tuscan theme for your house. This region was the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, and for great cause. A comprehensive spectrum of color fills the countryside, including fields of lavender blooms, blue skies, green rolling hills, and strong sunset colors of yellow, orange, and red. Tuscan kitchen cabinets frequently feature natural wood tones that echo the warm colours of the Tuscany landscape.
Tuscan kitchen cabinets are predominantly made of quality woods like cherry or maple. They are usually stained into rich brown colors to evoke a natural feel while conveying a refined sophistication. Cabinet doors have a tendency to have raised panels and decorative wood accents for example elaborate hoods, ledges and cornices and are often accentuated by tasteful designs, like an ornate wood range hood over a cooker, or handcrafted tiles to supply an Old World look to a backsplash. Distressed stone, copper fixtures and wood floors are not unusual in Tuscan kitchen layouts. Add ornamental vases of brilliant sunflowers to countertops to give an all-natural spot of color to the room. Many Tuscan kitchen designs feature the trademark colours of the region, which reflect the rich soil, plentiful sunlight and rolling green hills of Tuscany. Colors like ocher, burnt orange, terracotta, soothing yellows and Mediterranean blues are usually applied to invoke the relaxed, luxury perspective of Tuscany. While rich woods are the stuff of choice in a Tuscan kitchen, deep reds and greens are also popular and can be used as decorative accents or even as painted cabinet colors in order to evoke the heat seen in Tuscany, and Tuscan kitchen relies on a neutral palette while blending in sun-warmed tones of golden and yellow. Tuscan-style kitchens also tend to feature surfaces that are matte or distressed, rather than slick, glistening or modern in look—this layout style undoubtedly implies a “lived in, well-used and well-loved” vibe, with particular attention paid to cooking implements, which are often fondly displayed. The prevailing theme is comfort and comfortable sophistication in a space that feels more like a vacation villa than a location to see each morning before rushing out the door.
Glass-paneled doors featured under light in cupboard and corner cabinetry are common improvements viewed in Tuscan kitchens. Backsplashes are an excellent means to incorporate lively layout flourishes in a Tuscan kitchen layout, with terracotta and mosaic tile being popular alternatives for stuff. Matte finishes may usually endure over glossy ones in Tuscan kitchen designs, but backsplashes are one area where there may be the opportunity to add a small shine to the layout, breaking up an otherwise earthy, laid back feel with some gleam. Natural light regularly gets great emphasis in Tuscan-style kitchen designs, whether permeated through semi-see-through drapes, or windows with no curtains in any respect. If there are window coverings, they’re going to commonly not be dark, bright and airy. Ceilings may feature exposed wood beams, and countertops will virtually always sport matte stone, as opposed to gleaming -polish granite or ceramic. Cabinets are usually made form high quality, natural wood, stained or painted in light colors to continue the light, bright, natural feel.
Floorings in a traditional Tuscan kitchen layout in many cases are made from marble, terracotta tile or ceramic tile in sandy, natural colours and finishes. Furniture may sport a hand-painted or distressed look, to not continue the tense, lived-in, warm and welcoming feel of a classic Tuscan kitchen.
Other natural features, from furniture to flora, are common—window boxes bursting with blooms and seats and rustic tables of raw wood can often be found in Tuscan kitchen designs. Brass, bronze, copper and ornate iron are in order to evoke a Mediterranean feel metals used to complement the wood cabinetry. Italian tile work or pastoral is popular in Tuscan kitchens and complements the vibrant tones and ornate details of the wood cabinets. Wrought iron chandeliers are also popular accents above kitchen islands along with ornate wrought iron pot racks exhibiting cookware that is appealing, practical.
Tuscan kitchens frequently exhibit spices, cookware and food as accessories that are appealing to the eye and the stomach since Italy is a country that celebrates cooking and eating as a form of art.
One idea for a classic Tuscan kitchen is to match deep brown paneled cabinetry with a beige- or golden-veined marble countertop. Pastoral subway tiles can be used to create a distressed, Tuscan-influenced backsplash, while iron chandeliers provide a glamorous finishing touch. While you mightn’t want a kitchen that is completely red, consider using a deep red ornamental carpet in this space to give the room a splash of color.
A close relative to the Old World Design and style is the Tuscan Design kitchen. The Tuscan aesthetic tends to be subtle leaning a bit more towards a female feel.
