Here’s how to create an Italian-influenced bar area:

  • Invest in a sturdy wine storage cabinet with a butcher block top. Opt for a furnishing with a rustic finish to give it the provincial appearance of reclaimed wood.
  • Add comfort to prep spaces with wine-themed cushioned mats. Look for a floor mat with skid-resistant backing and memory foam fill.
  • Cultivate a warm Tuscan vibe with grape- and wine-themed wall art. An openwork metal wall art sign can be used to give a crowning accent to a pair of canvas panels.
  • Don’t forget kitchen accessories! Play up your Italian theme with coordinating accessories like a napkin caddy and a paper towel holder.
