Tuscan kitchens are warm, inviting spaces for entertaining family & friends, and preparing excellent food. In Tuscany, kitchens are usually simple, practical and functional. They often feature colorful Italian ceramics, elements of stone and clay, and warm wooden accents. Each of our accessories were selected for rustic/comfortable Tuscan appeal, display of color, and general good looks. Learn more about decorating Tuscan kitchens here.
Using Kitchen Islands & Carts
As you can imagine, we spend a lot of time looking at fabulous interior design pictures. It's a lot of fun to dream about having a giant, family style open floor plan with large countertop work spaces and plenty of room for cooking and conversation. But, sometimes, as the old song goes, "if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with". This can be terrific advice for those who find their cooking space is less than ideal. If you are on a tight budget, adding a few small accent pieces, and making the most of countertop, wall, and above cabinet areas by adding some decorative accents can go a long way toward changing the look and feel of the space.
Whether you are starting from scratch, or just trying to enhance an existing space, introducing a kitchen island or cart into the mix is a great place to start. Not only can they increase your functional work space, they often serve double duty by providing additional seating. And since these kitchen furniture beauties are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and finishes, it's easy to find something that will work with almost any situation. A popular design trend is to incorporate an island with a complementary finish or color. This allows you to show off your kitchen's personality with a pop of color, and prevents everything from being to "matchy".
So, if you are building a new home, or just trying to make some functional and beautiful improvements to your kitchen, think about adding an island or cart.
