How to Renovate Your Kitchen Like the Italians
Renovating your kitchen anytime soon? This is our guide to renovating like the Italians do.
When looking to Italy for inspiration, there’s one thing to remember: quality always wins. While designing your new kitchen, focus around the pieces you know you want, whether it be a great stove or a beautiful bespoke tiled floor.
If possible, allow textures to mix in with one another, drawing on timber accents to complement modern steel finishes.
If altering the building isn’t possible, go with timber cabinetry, with a pop of sheen from a statement, Italian-made in-built oven. Luxe life? You bet.
Community lies at the heart of Italian living, so open-plan is a must — adjoining living spaces will ensure the kitchen’s ‘heart of the house’ status is maintained.
For a traditional (yet decidedly modern) take on open-plan, an island bench can make space for utility while also giving an added design element.
For a traditional twist on modernity, hang Italian stoneware on the walls to contrast with modern finishes, giving the space a gorgeous Italian feel.
The final touch? A glass of prosecco, of course.
