Taking its inspiration from the elegant, romantic Victorian era in Europe, Victorian kitchen design often features luxurious materials, antique furniture, soothing color palettes and intricate details. One of the hallmarks of Victorian kitchen design is an open kitchen space.
Cabinets may also feature open shelving or glass doors in order to better show off favorite collections of dishware or glassware. Countertops and floors in Victorian kitchens can often provide a bit of contrast to what might otherwise be a romantically soft, light and bright design. Whereas antique cabinetry might be painted white, beige or light yellow, countertops in black granite, whether matte or glossy, can provide a great opportunity to add contrast.
Finally, furniture in Italian kitchen design often follows the thematic arc of the overall design. For Tuscan-style Italian kitchens, distressed, natural woods are often seen. In Mediterranean-style Italian kitchens, brighter and more modern furniture may be common, from sleek, stainless steel tables, stools and chairs to painted woods in bright and bold oranges, blues and greens.
