Tuscan kitchens architecture lives testify to the region’s history, which dates back to 600 BC A modern kitchen can convey the old world charm through textures such as faux painting that mimic stone walls, as well as accessories pieces made of ceramic or wrought iron. Creating an entire wall of stone strengthens the Tuscan atmosphere. Unlike the sleekness of modern design, reaching the Tuscan looks requires rustic finishes.
A table painted with an antique technique, for example, adds texture and enhances Tuscan country estate design. A rustic stone countertop, perhaps honed rather than polished, adds additional Tuscan appeal. The last step to achieving a Tuscan cuisine is the use of appropriate accessories. Wooden boxes are displayed in pottery jars, pot racks and cabinet hardware crafted from wrought iron.
Choose large pieces of heavy furniture in rich, dark brown spots. Find tall cabinets with open display shelves for fine china or objects d’art. Put an entrance bench with thick tops and wide, round legs in the entry way. Dining room, use a large buffet table and a rustic rectangular dining table with upholstered chairs. Iron and copper details are also part of the Tuscan design theme. Choose side tables and accent tables with wrought iron bases and polished wood tops in dark spots.
