Floors in a traditional Tuscan kitchen design are often made from terracotta tile, marble or ceramic tile in sandy, natural colors and finishes. Furniture may sport a hand-painted or distressed look, to continue the relaxed, lived-in, warm and welcoming feel of a classic Tuscan kitchen.
Backsplashes are a great way to incorporate lively design flourishes in a Tuscan kitchen design, with mosaic tile and terracotta being popular choices for materials. Matte finishes may generally prevail over glossy ones in Tuscan kitchen designs, but backsplashes are one area where there may be an opportunity to add a little shine to the design, breaking up an otherwise earthy, laid-back feel with some gleam.
Additional design flourishes can add great visual interest to a cottage-style kitchen. Some homeowners choose thematic elements for backsplashes or wallpaper. In a country-themed cottage-style kitchen, for example, farm or pastoral scenes in toile might be a great fit. Similarly, nautical or ocean-inspired designs might be featured by homeowners who reside by the seaside, adding a soothing thematic element to their cottage-style kitchen.
