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.

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. Copper fixtures, distressed stone and wood floors are common in Tuscan kitchen designs. Add decorative vases of bright sunflowers to countertops to give the room a natural spot of color.

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