What is a Tuscan Kitchen Design?

Tuscany kitchens focus on a look that has earthy colors, natural materials (which are often weathered), and a design inspired by the Tuscan landscape. The kitchen style incorporates terracotta tiles, wooden beams, stone walls, and granite countertops to create a rustic and welcoming space.

The Tuscan design is not hard to recreate as it does not rely on perfect finishes, matching sets of furniture, or designer accessories. Instead, its lived-in look, different natural wood cabinets, and mismatched dining chairs are all part of the old-world look.

A common feature in Tuscan kitchens is warm pops of colors. This is achieved by adding beautiful landscape paintings to make the kitchen charming and warm. A landscape painting can stand alone or be used to create a gallery wall in the kitchen.

If you have dark walls in your kitchen, add a splash of color with an orange table lamp placed against the wall. The orange warm colors will resemble the sun-soaked hues of Tuscany.

One of the main focal points in a Tuscan kitchen is the light fixtures. They provide the kitchen with a glamorous touch. If you have glass jars hanging in your kitchen, match the glass with a flower-shaped glass light fixture.

A great place to hang it would be above your kitchen sink or in a grouping above your kitchen island.

The next light fixture to try in a Tuscan-inspired kitchen is a burnt orange or red design. These hues perfectly resemble the sunshine hues in the Italian countryside. What makes this light fixture Tuscan-approved is the chipped detail. It has a lived-in look that the Italians absolutely love.

The Italians never shy away from incorporating a lot of color in their kitchen designs. This is portrayed in the ceramic tiles, rich tones from the kitchen utensils, and this pink light fixture. The flower-shaped light adds the perfect amount of vibrant hues to a Tuscan kitchen design. Hang it above your dining table to bring light and glamour to your space.

In a Tuscany kitchen design, there is never a shortage of copper tones. So take a cue from the Italians and include some copper kitchen pieces. You can add a vintage copper kettle on your stovetop to give your kitchen a Tuscany upgrade. What’s also great about the copper kettle is that it will harmonize with the warm color scheme of the Tuscany kitchen.

As mentioned earlier, Italians place great emphasis on warm tones. It helps to make the kitchen space inviting. An earthy color palette is some of the core colors that are used. This is highlighted in the use of red terracotta clay pot planters. These are great accessories to add some greenery for a fresh and relaxing look!

Would it really be a Tuscany kitchen without an olive oil bottle? You’re going to need one to drizzle on your baby tomatoes and cheese. However, instead of going for those modern designs, opt for one with an old-world look. And this eye-catching vessel is the perfect pick for a Tuscany kitchen design.

Don’t be shy to add more color to your space. Add some wonderful paintings of landscapes to dress up your kitchen walls.
