Appliances and accessories run the gamut in Italian kitchen design, from simple stainless steel designs that can work with anything from a Tuscan design to Mediterranean style Italian kitchen, to vintage or more modern styles in bright and bold colors. In general, the more natural and earthy the overall design, the better it will pair with appliances and cooking accessories that feature a more straightforward, traditional design, as opposed to leaning more contemporary or modern.
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.
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.
