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.
If you have kitchen chairs that feel dated or boring, don't rush out to buy a new set. Freshen them up with some paint and bring new life to your room.
Paint is an easy and inexpensive way to update a kitchen. If you' re never painted a kitchen before, it can seem like an overwhelming task, especially when it comes to choosing the colors and finish for painting kitchen walls.
When it comes to paint, there are two types to choose from: oil paint and latex paint. Oil paint is very resistant to water, which is why it works well in kitchens. It also tends to be very shiny, so it's mainly used on cabinets, woodwork and doors. Latex paint is the more popular option for kitchen walls and it comes in a few different finishes.
