Italian traditional kitchens have always been incredibly popular and the trend continues to be on the rise. These kitchens are not designed just as an area for storage or to cook, but are in fact a lifestyle. Italian kitchens are put together as a place where the family can come together, drink, plan menus or even just carry on every day conversation. While many kitchens are cluttered and closed off, these modern kitchens are spacious, open ended and have a wonderfully inviting atmosphere.
There are many inherent and unique aspects that are and have always been a part of traditional Italian kitchen design. While many of these aspects remain the same from design to design, there are also a number of options that you can choose from when designing or remodeling your current kitchen. There are a few seemingly constant design ideas including marble counters, terracotta flooring, big windows and even extravagant columns but you are not restricted by these choices in any way. In many ways, your options when it comes to designing a traditional Italian kitchen are quite endless.
The first option you really have to make a decision on is the size. Are you remodeling the entire kitchen or just looking to add a few minor upgrades and touches? If you are going for the full out remodel and starting from scratch then you have even more options available to you than most. You can choose between color, accent shades, accessories and actual appliances and functional equipment.
As a good starting point when it comes to your redesign options you want to focus on color.

You can go with an older classic look that adds a Cherry Brown color. This is the most traditional style you can go with and adds a comfortable and warm feeling to your kitchens. On the other hand you can go with a lighter color such as white ash or even sea green to add a unique touch to the classic Italian kitchen.

One of the key features of an Italian kitchens is its accent shades. After you have chosen a set, prominent color you can continue to dabble with other colors that will bring more flavor and uniqueness to your room on the whole.
