This beautiful book inspired by Country Living Magazine is a pictorial encyclopedia of every style, color, texture and budget to help the renovator and builder design a true country kitchen. It has been a huge inspiration for my 100 year old house makeover. Nothing disappointing about this book.

You need this book if you're doing a kitchen remodel June 5 2009
By Erica R. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Amazing idea book. Every page is a spectacular, interesting kitchen that is refreshingly original. What I love about this book is it includes working with what you already have. They picture these appliances that are those horrible 80's style BUT they somehow make it look good. It also includes kitchens of various sizes because let's face it if you have a 20x20 open floor plan kitchen it's easy to make it look good. They have everything in this book from clean white/stainless steel kitchens to crazy colored kitchens with 50's appliances. I stopped dog earring the pages after I realized I was doing it with every other page.

Country Living 500 Kitchen Ideas: Style, Function and Charm Dec 13 2008

Many, many ideas in this book. Took a long time to get through but is a great style idea reference. Many of the pictures have been published before but for once that did not bother me because it put them in one spot that was easy to find rather than going through all of my old magazines.

Love country or cottage kitchens? Dec 31 2009
By L. M. Keefer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is like a visual file of pictures of country or cottage kitchen ideas and features. Most of us know what we love in design when we see it, before we can put it into words. This book allows us to look at hundreds of attractive kitchens and their unique elements: cabinetry, counters, floors, sinks, wall colors, appliances,storage including pantries, islands, seating and accessories. It shows you how to create the mood or feeling you want your kitchen to create such as light, warm, inviting, colorful, cozy etc.

This book will enable you to listen to your heart and begin to decide what's important to you in your kitchen design, and just as important, what you don't want. It will help you to your prioritize your resources--what you want to splurge on, where you can save. One great aspect of country and cottage design is that it doesn't get dated easily so this book should be useful for many years. Country and cottage style can be updated easily and often inexpensively, sometimes with just stylish accessories. If you love the warmth and texture of country kitchens, this is one of the best books I've seen on this style of kitchen design. I use it in a kitchen design class I team-teach with a kitchen design studio. My students love the book

I'm a self-professed decorating book junkie, however, if they don't deliver the goods, back they go. This one delivers. It's thoughtfully organized, full of quality pictures, and not overly verbose. (A plus for those of us who really just want to look at the pictures!) I got about half way through the first pass, and had to jump up from my chair and completely redecorate my china hutch to look like it could be in the book. It didn't stop there, I spent the next hour and a half rearranging and decluttering all the surfaces in the entire kitchen. I bought the book to glean ideas for finishing my kitchen, but it even helped me to make do with what I have. It is not just full of $50,000 kitchen remodels, there's stuff in there for us regular people too. That's what I call "Inspirational".
