Following are three of the key elements of Tuscan design:
The Tuscan style emphasizes color and walls. Texture is vital to Tuscan style. One way to use this design element within a Tuscan kitchen is by creating wall textures with frescoes, murals and stone. Wall and accent colors are straw, golden honey, dark brown, sandstone, raw/burnt umber, raw/burnt sienna, warm gray, milky white with muted shades of rusty/brick red, terracotta, yellow ocher, deep red, grayed warm pastel pink, pale warm yellow, apricot and peach. Often the darker hued colors are sponged over a lighter background. This creates an elegant, old world appeal of a genuine Tuscan kitchen.
The right type of countertops is important to Tuscan style. Nothing says Tuscany more than beautiful, rich granite countertops. Granite countertops are the truest essence of Tuscan style. Other types of natural stone such as marble are also used. The travertine stone is another type of stone counter that is growing in popularity and it blends perfectly with the theme of a Tuscan Kitchen Design. Without a doubt the counters and walls set the stage for Tuscan style.
Arches on the windows and doorway are a traditional Tuscan element,
as is the inviting warmth of casual elegance suited to family gathering.
