Furniture in Mediterranean kitchen designs is often constructed from quality hardwood, but many homeowners who feature this relaxed, stress-free design choose to either leave the wood in its natural, unfinished state or to add some weathering to the surface. The option to paint chairs, tables and stools in characteristic Mediterranean colors is also available and can be a great way to brighten up the space.
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.
The use of certain fabrics and patterns for curtains, tablecloths and placemats in farmhouse kitchens is quite common. Plaid, gingham and toile are quite common choices, with the latter often featuring pastoral or historical scenes from farming eras gone by.
