Tuscan themed kitchens
are very popular these days and for good reason.
This type of décor in a kitchen gives a feeling of richness and warmth.
When choosing your Tuscan art look for warm colors such as, deep
reds and purples, rich oranges, and olive greens. You can choose
from art that features the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside, or
rich still life featuring the red wines and grapes of the region, or
landscapes that detail the beautiful vineyards of northern Italy.
No matter what you choose, you are sure to find artwork to fit
your Tuscan kitchen perfectly.
With so many people remodeling the kitchen and creating a state of
the art gathering area for their families, modern and contemporary
art is earning a place in the kitchen. Modern and contemporary art
is a great choice because it encompasses such a broad spectrum
of artwork. You can choose anything from abstract art, to
photography, or pop art, all of which have pieces relevant to the
kitchen. In a modern kitchen
you can hang anything from a set of
simple black and white photographs of silverware or kitchen appliances
to a collage of multicolored coffee cups. Being able to choose from
such a wide array of pieces within one style is often very helpful in
the process of choosing the right art for your kitchen and home.
The country kitchen
will always have its place in kitchen styles and
decors. This style offers a comforting and inviting air to any home.
Artwork featuring fresh fruits and vegetables, rustic signs, and
roosters (along with other barnyard animals) always work well in
a country kitchen. If you love apples, decorate your country kitchen
with apples. In a country kitchen you can pick a theme and run with it.
Country is a feeling; it's the warmth you feel when you enter the room. It's the curtains blowing
in the wind from an open window, or the smell of peach cobbler from the oven. There are no concrete rules when
designing a country kitchen, pick what you love and run with it and you will without a doubt end up with a charming
and cozy country kitchen.
Once you decide what style of kitchen you like and you begin to choose the artworks for it, there are a few things to think
about before buying and hanging your art. First, no matter what kind of art you choose be sure that it is framed. The
frame will help to protect your art for the elements of the kitchen. Such as, grease splatter or smoke from the range top.
Next, think about the placement of your artwork and what will inhibit its display. Cabinets that open widely, for example,
may hinder the placement of a piece of art. Also, do not hang anything by the stove if it cannot be scrubbed clean or if it
is sensitive to heat. Likewise goes for the sink, if it is not waterproof then hang it elsewhere. It would be a terrible thing
to spend so much time and energy creating a beautiful kitchen only to have your artwork damaged by heat, grease,
When taking all these things into consideration, it may seem like a lot of work to remodel or redecorate you kitchen,
however it will be well worth it. With all the time that is spent in the kitchen it should be a place you actually enjoy
being in. Whether you are creating a rich Tuscan kitchen
, a sleek modern and contemporary kitchen
, or a warm and
cozy country kitchen
, armed with this information you are well on your way to creating a wonderfully warm and
inviting area in which to spend time and make many memories together with your friends and family.
