Elements of Tuscan Kitchen Style (PICS)

Tuscany is the inspiration behind many a home décor design scheme. With its rich natural color palettes and historical architecture, the Tuscan theme allows for various interpretations and decorative additions. From the inclusion of Arizona Tuscan cabinets to terracotta flooring, there are a number of elements you can incorporate into a kitchen setting to give it a Tuscan feel.

Characteristics of Tuscan design include textured walls with fresco designs, honey, peach or apricot color accents and lots of natural stone elements featured throughout the kitchen space. The idea is to create the old-world presence that dominates Tuscan décor.

 

In addition to Arizona Tuscan cabinets, you might include complementary granite countertops and tile pieces. Granite is durable and comes in a vast array of stunning natural colors, which makes it a perfect fit with a Tuscan theme. From rich dark reds to light straw hued colors, granite makes the entire Tuscan look more natural, particularly when you include the right choices of appliances and Arizona Tuscan cabinets to create the look.

 

A surprising addition to Tuscan design is the additional of stainless steel appliances within the theme. It may seem odd to include such a cool metal assortment with so many warm and natural colors; however, the coolness of stainless steel complements the warmth of Tuscan design and Arizona Tuscan cabinets perfectly. If you want something more to tie it all together, you might try including a few wrought iron elements in the form of hanging pot holders and candleholders. If you really want a decorative flair, then you might also incorporate wrought iron furnishings in select areas of the kitchen or even a wrought-iron chandelier over your dining room table.

 

Keep in mind that sticking with the Tuscan color palette is key, particularly when you’ve got major elements like Arizona Tuscan cabinets and granite flooring and/or countertops. The more natural your color scheme, the more authentic the theme overall will be. You also need to remember to mix it up between light and dark hues, so that your decorative elements will be more prominent. For example, if you have a lot of wrought iron in your kitchen, then you may want to go with light walls to really bring the wrought iron pieces to life and make them stand out. Conversely, if you went with lighter-hued Tuscan touches, then there is nothing wrong with doing your walls, Arizona Tuscan cabinets and flooring in a rich dark honey hue.
