Italian Kitchen Cabinet Colors

Italian kitchen design is known for incorporating cabinet colors that reflect the natural world of Italy. Colors that reflect the waters, lands, and environments of Italy are often found in Italian kitchen design. The kitchen cabinet colors chosen in Italian design are intended to create an atmosphere that is at once relaxing and elegant, much like the land and culture of Italy itself. Common kitchen cabinet colors in modern Italian kitchen design include:

  • Terracotta
  • Yellows — gentle in brilliance
  • Bright blues
  • Ocher
  • Burnt Orange

Kitchen Surfaces

In terms of surfaces in your kitchen, such as kitchen flooring, kitchen countertops, and backsplashes, many Italian kitchen designers tend to embrace natural materials that give the kitchen a very organic feeling. Rather than high-gloss granite, it is more common to see a matte stone or granite kitchen countertop. Kitchen flooring is often comprised of slate or terracotta colors and finishes. For kitchen backsplashes, it is not uncommon in Italian kitchen design to use mosaics. Such mosaic style tiles typically incorporate the colors used for the particular custom kitchen, and those that are common in overall Italian kitchen design.

Kitchen Lighting

Many Italian and European high-end kitchen designs embrace natural light through huge windows, and the incorporation of natural light sources in the kitchen design planning and design process. This goes hand in hand with the overall theme of embracing the landscape and environment of Italy throughout Italian kitchen design. The general feel of an Italian kitchen design is typically light, airy, and bright, and whenever this feeling can’t be achieved through natural or direct light sources, our kitchen designers are very aware of how to create the same or a similar feeling or effect through the use of indirect lighting that becomes part of the custom kitchen design.

Natural Mediterranean Design Elements

Beyond surface and lighting decisions, the decor that is used in Italian kitchen design typically works to embrace nature. Flowers and plants are very commonly used to decorate surfaces. Exposed wooden beams are also often found in kitchens, which lend themselves to an overall natural feel. Within the general umbrella of Italian kitchen design, there are two common approaches – Tuscan and Mediterranean. When it comes to kitchen cabinet furnishings, for example, a Tuscan kitchen will often embrace very natural materials, such as distressed or repurposed wood for kitchen tables and chairs. Mediterranean, conversely, will typically use bright bold kitchen cabinet colors and sleek modern design.

Kitchen Appliances Considerations

An Italian kitchen works to celebrate the art of cooking and eating. Therefore, kitchen appliances are typically luxurious and prominently featured. They often become part of Italian custom kitchen designs and integrated in a way that creates a nice contrast, while enhancing the perception of the Italian design features at the same time. Stainless-steel is a common material used in modern Italian kitchens. It is also frequently used for cooking tools, such as whisks, spoons, spatulas, and other common items to be stored in plain view.
