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.
Finally, furniture choices can contribute greatly to any modern kitchen design. Tables, stools, chairs and benches are available in an array of angular and flowing designs. Materials like wood, plastic and metal are employed in a modern or industrial style, often featuring bold and bright colors that can add great visual interest to any elegant and efficient modern kitchen design.
Cooking implements, appliances and storage are also important facets of farmhouse kitchen design. Sinks have a special place in farmhouse kitchen design. The classic farmhouse sink features a deep, wide basin often made of porcelain or stainless steel; it's capable of catering to the cooking and cleaning needs of a large, farm-to-table style meal.
Finally, ancillary design touches like artwork or antique farm equipment may be used to add visual interest to a farmhouse kitchen design, artfully hung from walls or integrated into the design next to more contemporary cooking implements.
In the current era, modern kitchen design is part of a larger trend which has embraced midcentury modern design and furniture, which introduced bold angles and curves to the design landscape. Midcentury modern design—generally recognized as originating in the Nordic countries in the mid 20th century—has now been incorporated into many modern kitchen designs.
Your kitchen backsplash is a personality piece. Refined or funky, neutral or loud: What's your style? The tiles you choose to spruce up the wall space between the countertop and cabinets and above the range, should showcase the color scheme and theme of your kitchen, whether contemporary or traditional. Ultimately, that backsplash is a focal point. And it's an opportunity to be creative.
