Format: Paperback
The book has thirty seven before and after remodeled kitchens that clearly illustrate real-life possibilities. There are many specific ideas to apply to any kitchen project even if a major remodel is not undertaken -- small changes that can make a difference in both utility and appearance.

Almost every conceivable style of decor is covered, along with whether the existing kitchen lay-out is to remain the same or a major change to the floorplan is desired. This is a good no-nonsense reference book to start the wheels turning before beginning a kitchen update.

The design ideas are wonderful, it's just frustrating to me that every time TOH does work on a galley kitchen it entails ripping down walls and building extensions, rather than utilizing the space around the multiple entrances in the original galley footprint. Some of us just don't have the property space to do a major makeover that includes an island and many of us would like to preserve the period integrity of the space. It will be very gratifying once TOH shows a willingness and expertise to do so.

This is not a how-to. And if you don't want a vintage kitchen complete with schoolhouse lights, subway tile, and a farm sink, don't buy it. But I have put sticky notes on page after page of photos in advance of a major kitchen remodel in our 1926 house. The ideas represented in the photos give me plenty to work with.

My two complaints are that almost every kitchen has a vintage stove, something that is rare indeed, not realistic for the typical homeowner, and that the sinks are almost all apron/farm sinks. A little too much of the same thing throughout.

I have a house built in 1906, so I was glad to see the ideas for older homes. I would recommend this book to others who are trying to upgrade an old kitchen.

My husband and I have been trying to figure out what to do with our outdated kitchen for years, and I've been so frustrated with the other how-to books out there. They're either too fancy--so we can't afford to recreate those looks--or they're just way too confusing to follow.

Leave it to the editors of This Old House to make exactly what we were looking for. It starts with the basics: picking a layout and then goes into beautiful, inspiring photos with accompanying floor plans. I'm such a sucker for before and after photos, and it's amazing the transformations some of these spaces made.

The best part, though, is the chapter on "the budget kitchen." It's nice to see that you can still create a beautiful space without going bankrupt.

We got some real, solid ideas from this book. My husband has dog-eared so many of the pages! I think we're finally ready to bust out the sledgehammer and get going.

Great pictures and easy to follow plans -- we've gotten lots of ideas from this. It got us excited about renovating the kitchen in our 110-year-old house again.
