What does a country style kitchen look like? It can be warm and welcoming. When I think of country I think of Americana, it is comfortable and natural looking.

If you love the warm welcoming comfortable feeling, country style may be the look you want to consider (and no you don't have to be in the country).

In country style you think big bright windows with all that natural light. But say you don’t have those big bright windows how would you light your kitchen?

In this photo the country feeling is inspired by the butcher block island and the warm colors of the cabinets. The lighting you could use recessed lighting (Halo 4” LED).

The pendants over the island is by Hubbardton Forge called the Erlenmeyer $360 each. The undercabinet lighting (GM Lighting tape) provides a nice glow on the counters.

Warm color cabinets with recessed lighting (4” Halo), pendants are Hubbardton Forge at $340 each. Chandelier over kitchen table is from Hubbardton Forge at $1,720. I like Hubbardton because the lights are all unique, hand forged and perfect for country style kitchens.

I love this look, very country and rustic looking. Under cabinet lighting will light up the wood back splash. The lantern on the side of the cabinet evokes that country look and doesn’t take away from the wood beams above with a hanging pendant.

Let's look at a few fixtures that would be great for your country style kitchen.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
