As with Tuscan kitchen design, one of the most important features of any Mediterranean kitchen design is color. Bold, teal blues and greens reflect the spectacular colors of the Mediterranean waters and are common for walls, accents or even larger elements like cabinets or kitchen islands. Walls, countertops and floors often feature beach-like sandy tans and beiges, setting the stage for the design to be infused with more impactful colors elsewhere. Pops of red, yellow and green can be added using smaller design elements like rugs, curtains, storage containers and glassware.
Accessories and other design flourishes can build on a modern kitchen theme. Cabinet doors may be replaced with frosted glass or a sleek laminate or wood veneer to create a modern look. Mixers, blenders, coffee makers and other accessories are available in bold colors and unique designs that seem positively science fictional. Cookware, utensils and flatware are all available with a modern twist, both in terms of design aesthetic and bold, up-to-date colors.
One of the trademark features of Italian kitchen design is color. Natural hues and the vibrant colors of the Mediterranean Sea are often featured, contributing to a design that's at once welcoming and lively. Shades like ocher, burnt orange, terracotta, gentle yellows and brilliant blues are often deployed to suggest a relaxed yet elegant Italian lifestyle—one in which cooking and eating enjoy a place of primacy.
