Only then would you be able to achieve that fine and sophisticated look you desire. In addition to that, the selection of tables, benches and chairs should also be made with the same logic.

A good example would be the placement of the kitchen table. It can either be in the centre or on one side of the room. This is dictated by your choice of food and wine. If it is going to be used for gatherings, you may put it in the middle so that everyone can get to know each other more easily. If it is going to serve as an area for meal time, then you may put it on the side so that you and the family can have privacy when you are preparing food for that special occasion.

This would give an impression of orderliness and thus make you kitchen look more inviting. You can also find many accessories for Tuscany decor in this theme that would go well with the way your furniture is arranged.
