TUSCAN KITCHENS, BY MIKE FOURNIER, TULSA, SONRISE CONSTRUCTION


A Tuscan kitchen offers the appeal of old world Italy.  With its understated color scheme, a Tuscan kitchen presents decorating ideas for you to consider for your kitchen.  
 
Walls and Counters:
 
Achieving the worn look is accomplished with texture; utilizing a joint compound that produces a physical wall texturing.  Another technique that will achieve a similar look is the faux painting technique.  This entails sponging a darker shade over a lighter shade of paint.  The result is the look of texture and a faded look, precisely what a Tuscan style kitchen calls for.
 
Tuscan kitchens look great with a natural stone counter.  Today, many homeowners are opting for travertine stone, and whichever type of stone you select, a softer look will be most attractive in your Tuscan kitchen.  Be sure to select a stone that can survive the spills and routine activities of your kitchen.
 
Color:
 
Tuscan kitchen colors are most generally in a solid, muted color.  Bright shades simply do not achieve the worn look, so select the softer, toned-down colors.
 
Metal:
 
Wrought iron metal is a frequent choice for the Tuscan kitchen decorating accents.  Any kitchen accent can be done in wrought iron.
 
Storage:
 
Tuscan kitchen design is quite similar to the cottage style kitchen with their openness and practicality.  Many Tuscan kitchens utilize canisters for storing frequently used cooking ingredients.  And, of course a wooden bowl for fruits or nuts adds to the charm of the kitchen.
