Style Tips for Tuscan Kitchens
Tuscan style kitchens are very popular in Colorado Homes. The color tones and old world touches warm up the temperature of these kitchen and give them a custom look. Dark woods and warm golden walls with texture are often combined with a bit of tile and custom cabinets and countertops for a Tuscan style kitchen.
Touches of metal accents in black are added with light fixtures and cabinet hardware. Stove backsplashes in Italian mosaic tiles and custom stove vents complete the look. When building a new home, owners often choose to add some exposed wood beams in the ceiling for a more authentic Tuscan style kitchen.
Another classic addition with the Tuscan look is a pot rack hung over the kitchen island.
Countertops are usually either dark warm browns, or tan / ivory granite. Custom granite edges are typically more ornate and detailed in Tuscan style kitchens.
Even when the surfaces and materials are specifically chosen to look “old”; most homeowners combine modern stainless steel appliances. This mix of old and new lends a modern flair and gives homeowners the best of both worlds.
