There are a lot of ideas to design a unique Italian kitchen; like painting the walls with gold and using the paper bag technique which will create a wonderful texture. Pots and herbs are extremely Italian; they can be used in cooking or decoration. In order to elicit feelings of the sea, glass tiles in blue and green are a good choice. In addition, the Italian kitchen should have one or two elegant pieces of art.
The dining room table should be an old farm table with a rustic look and can hold a large family. For chairs, it is better to use chairs with benches on either side. The table should have two large antique chairs at both ends.
The Italian kitchen should be designed with an appropriate space to hold many people. It should be noted that dark paint makes the kitchen smaller so if you have a small kitchen area, it is better to use cabinets with light colors.
It is important to use Italian furniture and accessories to achieve the Italian look perfectly. A wooden harvest table with rush seats will be a good choice. Old pottery, pitchers and wooden bowels are perfect also. It is also important to have decorative jars with peppers or ropes of garlic. Clay and terra cotta as accessories are a significant feature of the Italian kitchen.
For outstanding lighting of the Italian kitchen, use a brass chandelier. If you could not find one, you can spray a gold color on the chandelier’s frame then use a bristle brush to get a dark brown effect. Colors of the Italian kitchen should mimic the Tuscan landscape. It should contain rich gold and the colors of earth and sea. Curtains of the Italian kitchen should be in earth colors. The wall decoration has to be in warm and natural colors.
