What are the elements of a Tuscan style kitchen?

Tuscan style décor uses rich tones and old world European style schemes and accessories to create a warm, rich, and gently aged atmosphere to your room. Typically the room uses low light and warm tones around with earthen textures to create an old-fashioned Italian countryside appeal. Some of the most common elements found in a Tuscan style kitchen include:

  • Antique farmhouse-style tables
  • Black iron / wrought iron fixtures and accessories
  • Copper cookware
  • Travertine tile backsplashes
  • Terracotta or brick flooring
  • Accent brick wall
  • Rustic relics that are made of brass, copper, bronze, or pewter
  • Warm, rich colors and tones, such as browns, golden browns, muted yellows or golden yellows, rich reds, olive greens, purples or lavenders

Brick fireplaces in the kitchen, along with hooded stoves and decorative, Italian-style backsplashes are common in Tuscan kitchens. Oversized sinks with copper fixtures are also popular choices, along with hanging pot racks that display your collection of copper pots is always an eye-catcher and great focal point.

One of the biggest points for creating a Mediterranean look, is thinking how the Italian, rolling countryside looks and trying to bring a little of that same atmosphere into your kitchen. Looking at pictures of an Italian countryside and trying to recreate the same theme can help you in your design ideas.

Italians also love to cook, so to enliven your kitchen with the same feel, try displaying some of the same elements you would naturally see in a true Tuscan home. Be creative with food.
