Furniture in Victorian kitchens often follows the pattern of elegant, luxurious design, with intricately designed chairs and tables carved from high-quality wood and painted in white or light colors.
When it comes to materials, Mediterranean kitchens tend toward natural ones, or at least natural-looking synthetics. Hardwood floors are common, usually in lighter shades to continue a light, bright and welcoming feel. Cabinets are often constructed from high-quality woods like cherry; they can be left in their natural state, stained or painted to add a colorful element to the design. Backsplashes may be terracotta or mosaic tile, and present a great opportunity to add color, visual interest and even an artistic element to the kitchen design. In particular, mosaics may show off intricate designs displaying scenes redolent of the cultures of the Mediterranean, with seascapes, fishing scenes or sea life often depicted.
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.
