Glass-paneled doors featured in corner cabinetry and cabinet underlighting are common additions seen in Tuscan kitchens. Ornate iron, bronze, copper and brass are metals used to complement the wood cabinetry in order to evoke a Mediterranean feel. Rustic or Italian tile work is popular in Tuscan kitchens and complements the rich tones and ornate details of the wood cabinets.
Tuscan kitchen cabinets are predominantly made of quality woods such as cherry or maple. They tend to be stained into rich brown colors to evoke a natural feel while conveying a sophisticated elegance. Cabinet doors tend to have raised panels and decorative wood accents such as ornate hoods, shelves and cornices.
Mission-style design is defined by straight lines and panel-faced doors with little or no adornment. The most common material used in mission-style kitchen cabinets is oak, particularly American white oak. Occasionally cherry can be used as well as this is considered a more elegant and durable wood. Mission-style kitchen cabinets are usually made by skilled carpenters because of their unique construction, which results in a more durable, dependable and long-lasting collection of cabinets. Because of this emphasis on custom-made cabinetry, creating a mission-style kitchen design can be costly. Both the cost of the wood and the cost of the labor decrease the likelihood of creating a budget-friendly mission-style kitchen; however, the aesthetic and durable results may very well be worth the extra expense.
Just look at the way the kitchen and dining rooms here are almost a negative image of each other! Black meets white and white meets wood. What a complex cacophony of contrasts that REALLY complement each other and highlight the brightness of the white!
