It’s dark, it’s brown, it’s wooden. You can almost feel the smell of cheese and vine, and zucchini. It looks like an old basement. But that’s what makes the classy look of an old Italian kitchen. If you are fan of cooking, baking, spicing, etc. then, this is the right ambient for you.
It has to have a huge work area where you can spread the dough and lots of hangers for the knifes, big spoons, pots etc.You can combine it with stone, and you can even make a fire stove like in the professional ovens for a bigger enjoyment in cooking.
There is a difference between Italian kitchen style and French kitchen style – French use baroque chairs, chandeliers, which elements might not really belong in the kitchen. While Italians, they use discreet lighting, and more simple design of chairs and cabinets.
Maybe some wrought iron would be used as a decoration, in complement with the kitchen appliances. However, Italian kitchen design is usually rustic, but the technics and the kitchen appliances can of course be modern and stylish. They can be discretely embeded into the rustic look – somewhere between the stone, the wood and the iron. Viva Italia!
