Tuscan Kitchen With Arched Brick Ceiling

Just like the title of the popular movie Under the Tuscan Sun suggests, the Tuscan kitchen relies on a neutral palette while mixing in sun-warmed tones of gold and yellow.

One idea for a classic Tuscan kitchen is to pair deep-brown paneled cabinetry with a beige- or gold-veined marble countertop. Rustic subway tiles can be used to create a distressed, Tuscan-influenced backsplash, while iron chandeliers provide a glamorous finishing touch. While you might not want a completely red kitchen, consider using a deep red decorative rug in this space to give the room a splash of color. This Italian-style kitchen combines the old-world elegance of a traditional Tuscan kitchen with state-of-the-art equipment.

A Grand Old World Kitchen

While the overall feeling of a Tuscan kitchen should be family-friendly, the room should feel grand upon entering.

An arched brick ceiling with exposed wood beams provides architectural interest in this spacious Tuscan kitchen. Sage green cabinetry and terra cotta hexagonal tiles complete the old world style. A round dining table and two chairs provide extra seating next to the massive wood-topped kitchen island.

Gray Mediterranean Kitchen Featuring Mosaic Backsplash

Tuscan kitchens are often accented by elegant designs, like an ornate wood range hood over a stove, or handmade tiles to provide an old world look to a backsplash. Add decorative vases of bright sunflowers to countertops to give the room a natural spot of color.

Designer Melissa Salamoff gave this galley kitchen Moroccan tile. The arched mosaic tile backsplash over the stove echoes the arched doorway leading into this kitchen.
