Guests should always feel welcome and comfortable in these spaces, even if their boots are still dirty. Cabinets, chairs and tables are often constructed from quality hardwood, with cherry, maple, oak and pine particularly common choices. Pine is an especially popular choice for farmhouse-style kitchens—its knotty, natural appearance can make it a perfect fit for the down-home appeal of a farmhouse kitchen.
Flooring made from substantial, dark wood planks also creates contrast with the preferred color schemes in Victorian kitchens, which may feature accents in light blues, yellows and rose pinks, building on the romantic feel. Speaking of romance, another way to add to the whimsical, rapturous feel of a Victorian kitchen is through artwork.
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.
