A traditional Italian Kitchen

A traditional Italian kitchen has a rustic feel to it. Very warm and cozy, incorporating terra cotta, stone, and other natural outdoor elements. The rustic look combines older lighting such as sconces and chandeliers. The colors of a traditional Italian kitchen tend to be on the warmer side with oranges, golds, and yellows. Floors would typically be a natural material such as wood, stone, terra cotta, or natural ceramic tiles. You would definitely find a large wooden table in a traditional Italian kitchen. You can expect the accessories in this type of kitchen to be poetry, antiques, herbs in the windowsill, and hanging pots and pans from ceiling racks. As beautiful and cozy as this is for your home, Tredi Interiors has a modern Italian kitchen design approach. 

Modern Italian Kitchen 

A modern Italian kitchen is “slick and sleek”. You will find a smooth-running design with integrated appliances. There are no unnecessary accessories. We are going for a clean, minimalistic look. A modern Italian kitchen is all about function and style. It’s basically the exact opposite of a traditional Italian kitchen! You won’t find clutter in this type of kitchen as we have special furniture designed to mask the clutter. Everything has a space in which it belongs. We can still use the colors and materials listed above in a traditional Italian kitchen. There would be a modern twist added to it, along with using the best and highest quality of materials. 

Why is the modern Italian kitchen and minimalistic design important? 

With the minimalistic design, you save on space! Many kitchens have a poor design layout and take up much unnecessary space that could otherwise be used. With minimalistic designs, we give you the opportunity to use all the available space that a room has to offer. Most modern and minimalist homes come equipped with modern appliances for example: a dishwasher. This helps lower your cleaning time and in turn with minimize the clutter from the dishes. A less cluttered home = more relaxation. Even if you don’t realize it! 



Whether you prefer a traditional, or modern Italian kitchen, either of the elements can be incorporated into the room. We look forward to helping you design the kitchen of your dreams. Contact us today for more information, and follow us on Instagram for updates.
