Traditional kitchens typically incorporate painted cabinets with or without glass front doors, simple granite or laminate countertops, and hardwood floors. The best traditional kitchens lean on classic elements, while still allowing room for family fun or guest entertainment. Freshen up the look by mixing in modern or industrial elements, like unique lighting fixtures or boldly painted walls.
If you have a really large kitchen and very high ceilings, you can go with a more bold hue such as dark gray or navy blue. To avoid highlighting any imperfections on your ceiling, it's best to use a flat finish, but some interior designers like to use a glossy finish for new homes to reflect light and add some dimension to the space.
If your kitchen has dark cabinets, choose a lighter shade for the backsplash to keep the room from feeling too heavy. If you have white or light-colored cabinets, a bright or darker paint color could work well. Since it‵s pretty easy to paint your backsplash, you can feel free to have some fun here. If you end up not liking the color you choose, you can just paint over it!
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.
