When it comes to surfaces like floors, countertops and backsplashes, a more natural appearance is generally preferred in Italian-style kitchens—matte countertops in stone or granite, floors in terracotta tile or slate, and backsplashes in unique mosaic designs are quite common.
Cooking supplies and implements are often featured prominently, whether in containers on countertops or hanging from antique racks. A common theme is relaxed elegance and lived-in luxury—Italian kitchens feel like spaces you'd be happy to spend long stretches of time in, as opposed to rushing in and out on the way to your next appointment.
Mediterranean kitchen design appeals to many homeowners, particularly those interested in adding a bright, sunny and relaxing style to their kitchen space. Lively colors are often used as accents or main themes, artistic tile work is common, and floors and walls often feature soothing, natural colors and textures that hint at the elegant and unhurried aspects of Mediterranean culture.
