The remodel team at Village Home Stores has done it again! We have removed yet another (rarely-used) gigantic 90’s Jacuzzi tub and replaced it with a large custom tiled shower. We completely reworked the master bath in this Bettendorf Quad Cities home to become more spacious, practical, and of course gorgeous. Don’t forget that our project management remodel process is not just for kitchen remodels. Village Home Stores can definitely help to transform your bathroom too!
The best-selling “Charcoal Blue” painted finish from our Koch Classic line is shown here on the Prairie doorstyle with Atherly series hardware from Amerock. This cabinet finish is perfect as an accent color on a kitchen island, and we use it a lot in bathroom and home bar cabinetry as well. Many people pause for a moment when we suggest a blue painted finish for their home. But just look at it, this color is great! Charcoal Blue can truly become a neutral finish when part of a great overall design concept like this.
In this Bettendorf home we were able to transform the original shower area into a second vanity space (see above). This added even more storage and a second sink area separate from the other across the room. A feature we love (that you can’t see in a photo) is the voice-controlled medicine cabinet above this sink. You can control lighting and even ask for some tunes all hands free. There is so much to love about this new master bath. Press play below to see a short video tour of the finished space.
Many of the builders we partner with in the Quad Cities area are installing tilled accent rug areas into bathroom spaces. We love that this remodel customer wanted to do the same in their home. With this room being very wide, including the accented tile area at the center takes that large tiled space and adds such a sophisticated look. Too much surfaces covered in one tile can start to look cold and institutional. This accented tile area gives us 5 star hotel vibes and it’s far from cold!
In fact this floor tile is not cold at all… it’s heated! Installing heated floors in a master bath is a feature that you will never regret investing in. Currently it’s Winter in the Midwest, so we don’t even have to sell you on the idea that exiting the shower onto cold tile floors can snatch that zen feeling from you in just a second. And how about a warm towel? Yes please! Just outside of the shower is a heated towel rack waiting for you as you exit.
We created a custom tiled shower design for this home that requires no door. Just a short step over a threshold and inside you have access to grab bars and a shower bench. A half wall near the toilet conceals a tiled niche for toiletries and a tiled bench. A row of Glazzio Mystique Series mirrored tile is a perfect compliment to the blue vanity cabinets.
The main tile in this master bath is from our Florida Tile line in the Ainslee Park series. In this room we used many sizes of “Calacatta Gold” tile. A 12×24″ size is used as the main floor, shower walls, and bench. 2×2″ tiles in the same color are used as the shower floor. A Hexagon mixed mosaic from the same Ainslee Park series is installed as that gorgeous tiled rug area.
Where the half wall meets a panel of fixed glass, we installed a slab of Cambria Quartz to match the vanity tops. The “Summerhill” design by Cambria is one of our favorite neutrals from their line. Warm grays and taupes are blended in a pattern that looks so much like a natural stone. Cambria has so many amazing designs available for the surfaces in your home (and we can get you this color at a great price). Did you you know that with the Cambria AR app you can even “try on” colors with a photo of your existing kitchen or bath? It is so fun to do!

This kitchen remodel feature brings us to a home in Morrison, IL where a new kitchen was part of a major remodel overhaul to the home. A room addition on the back end of the home and this new open kitchen layout have helped to create a new flow to the spaces. We also installed new flooring, lighting, and remodeled a hall bathroom during the process. We love a two tone kitchen design and for this kitchen, we combined two finishes AND two of our cabinet lines to get the perfect look for this household.
The kitchen perimeter cabinetry comes from our Dura Supreme line. The doorstyle is named “Highland” and has been painted in the “Moonstone” finish. The accent finished wood hood, island, and pantry wall are all from our Koch Classic line of cabinetry. The “Prairie” door is the perfect compliment to the perimeter cabinetry. These accent items are in a Hickory wood stained a warm gray “Stone” finish. If you are looking for a great wood stain that compliments many tones of grays out there, ask to see a sample of this finish on all wood species. We even two toned the countertop surfaces in this kitchen. The kitchen island is a statement Cambria Quartz surface named “Langdon” and the solid-colored perimeter quartz is the “Manchester” design.
The glass door cabinets were given a two tone look by ordering contrasting interior shelves. Including glass door cabinets in your design is a great way to add interest and offer display areas keeping the items contained and uncluttered. We always suggest to include our Diode LED tape lighting on the interior of glass cabinets. This really creates a stunning display space and the cabinets can also be used as an ambient light source day and night. We also installed this bestselling LED system for the undercabinet lighting in the new kitchen.
Of course there is plenty of great storage throughout the new kitchen design. Starting with this wall cabinet extension capping off the end of the sink wall. We love using this style of a drawered wall cabinet in bathroom designs to separate the two bowl areas. Of course this is a great kitchen cabinet as well! Think of how many uses you could have for these long and shallow drawers to keep clutter off your counters.
The corner of a kitchen design is always an opportunity to maximize storage when possible. Here we installed an angled front wall cabinet and base cabinet. This shape of a corner base cabinet allows you to gain a deeper and more accessible corner countertop surface. Inside of this base cabinet is a wooden lazy susan tray on two shelves. This sturdy design replaces the pole lazy susans of the past. Ask your kitchen designer at Village Home Stores to see all of your cabinet options for a corner in your own kitchen design.
This kitchen design must have been “written in the cosmos” because ironically the cabinet finish and the tile share the same “Moonstone” name! An elongated beveled wall tile from our Glazzio line in the Gemstone 3″ x 12″ series and “Grey Moonstone” color. The added bevel details adds interest, shadow, and texture without introducing another color to the tile. An accent tile area has been installed above the cooktop in a mosaic of Elongated Hex tiles in the “Silhouette” colorway from our Jeffrey Court line.
The appliances in this kitchen are from our dependable and strong Maytag line. Shown above is a front-control electric range with True Convection features. Curious what “convection” means or what type is right for you? Check out this short segment from our TV show where we unpack all that info for you. Don’t forget that we offer appliance sales and service to a large area and you can get a fair price while supporting our small business with your appliance purchases.

The accented “Stone” stained cabinets in this kitchen include a wood hood, the kitchen island, and the cabinetry surrounding the refrigerator. Wood hood cabinets can truly elevate your kitchen design. We love the customized look they give. Not sure what to put inside of it? Don’t worry! Our team will help you select the correct style and power for an insert for these cabinets. A counter-depth french door refrigerator is surrounded in this kitchen by tall pantry cabinets. Just look at all of that great storage! These two tall cabinets plus a deep cabinet above can honestly store as much (perhaps more?) than a walk-in pantry can.
To the left of the pantry and refrigerator area is a small landing space. We installed a wall outlet from our Radiant series that includes USB plugins. This makes it a great place for charging devices, sorting mail, keys, and papers in the cabinets above and below. Just around the corner from the new kitchen is an entirely new room in the home. A stunning new spacious four seasons space with a statement ceiling. A 65″ wide farmhouse inspired fan named “Gentry” looks perfect in the space in the “Anvil Iron” finish.
Don’t forget that our expert start to finish kitchen remodel team is also your expert start to finish bathroom remodel team. In this home a hall bathroom has been transformed to now become a stylish new space. Fit with a single sink vanity, framed mirror, and toilet topper cabinet. The same Hickory “Stone” cabinetry from our Koch Cabinetry line is used and we love seeing it paired with this rich mosaic tile in a variety of colors.
The Cambria Quartz vanity top is one of our favorite parts of the entire project! Look at how stunning this Skara Brae surface is! Cambria is a wonderful choice for a bathroom vanity top. It is extremely durable, resistant to the heat of hair care appliances, and wipes clean with just soap and water or any mild cleaner. Nothing spilled on the surface will be absorbed into that gorgeous pattern or cause a stain. With any natural or engineered stone surface in a bathroom we are also able to undermount a sink to the slab of surface. This makes cleanup even more simple and keeps the look clean.

This home in Galesburg, IL has gotten an entirely new look in nearly every room. Say goodbye to all that golden oak and hello to a stylish new refreshed update! There was so much transformation throughout this home and we wanted to highlight a few of the updates here in a featured post. Let’s begin in the kitchen. This home has a wonderful layout and already boasts an open concept feel that most new homes have. The oak woodwork, trim, and surfaces were in desperate need of an update.
This Galesburg family worked closely with a team at Village Home Stores on design, layout, and product selections that make you honestly feel like you are in a brand new home. For example, take a peek at the trim above the doorways in the above images. We removed the dated wood corner rosettes and built a new doorway topper design that is transitional in style. With so many doorways and windows in the home, this detail change really made a big impact throughout the entire property. Our Koch Cabinetry in the Bristol doorstyle has been painted in a bright “White” paint for the kitchen perimeter. The kitchen island repeats the same doorstyle in a Birch wood and “Stone” stain.
The kitchen is spacious and packed with great cabinet storage. The new kitchen island design includes an overhang on the back side with seating space for three. The front of the island faces the sink wall and includes centered large stack of pots and pans drawers with hidden top utensil slide out. Sliding shelves in one end cabinet and a pullout waste basket on the other end.
The L-shape of the layout includes a french door refrigerator and the cooking zone. This suite of appliances from our Whirlpool line also includes a microwave hood, dishwasher, and double oven range all in a fingerprint-resistant Stainless Steel finish. The electric double oven range has True Convection features in the lower oven and allows you to cook at two temperatures at once. The top oven cavity also has a very fast preheat.
The original kitchen had a similar perimeter layout, but the kitchen island was awkward in shape and location. The new rectangle design frames in the kitchen and allows those seated at the island to not have their backs entirely to the nearby dinette and great room. The area above the kitchen sink was updated as well. We bridged the cabinet space on either side of the window together with a valance, shelf, and crown molding.
One of the other transformation stories we want to share in the feature is the main view upon entering the home. The original entry had a oak-on-oak-on-oak staircase. The new owners of this home wanted a more updated look and a practical stairway surface for their young children and pet. We reworked this stairwell to include a carpeted runner and a two-tone white and warm gray stain similar to the kitchen design.
Durian Builders and the Village Home Stores team worked to create a design for this family inspired by many ideas found online. We want to help our customers truly get the home of their dreams. This doesn’t mean that every idea you show us from Pinterest or Houzz will be within your budget, but we will do our best to help explore any option you are wanting to discuss. If you love using these online platforms for inspiration be sure o follow Village Home Stores here on Pinterest and here on Houzz.
We think that the new staircase looks better than any of the ideas that inspired it! The carpeting on these stairs was also installed throughout the home. It is our Dream Weaver carpet in the Reflections II series and “Sageview” color. We installed in in the bedrooms, hallways, closets, and bonus/playroom space (cute dog not included in carpet purchase from Village Home Stores).
The entire album of photos from this completed home are now posted to our portfolio here on houzz.com. There you can see more of this stunning new kitchen plus get a peek at the bathrooms, mudroom locker, and laundry room. How about you?

As you walk through the rooms in your home, do you ever wish a doorway was wider or that a wall could just magically disappear? Giving you that “open concept” you see on all of your favorite HGTV shows? Well we can’t just wiggle our nose and make a wall disappear… but we do know the right reliable crews who can do it safely for you. Plus we can design a complete and finished look for your spaces. This Bettendorf Iowa home was more than just a kitchen remodel story. We widened doorways, removed walls, and gave these homeowners a more open and brighter space.
What a difference material selection can make in a new kitchen. The original kitchen in this home was a small design with an eat-in dining space. Dark wood cabinets and dark countertops boxed in the space with a U-shaped peninsula layout. The new layout removes that peninsula divide and uses the entire kitchen and casual dining space. Bright white painted cabinetry for the main perimeter of the kitchen helps to lighten the entire look and keep the new kitchen feeling bright and spacious.
What a dramatic difference from the original kitchen! We installed a section of taller cabinetry on the opposite end where the casual dining area was. Now it is home to a deep pantry cabinet, a counter-depth french door refrigerator, and built in wall oven and microwave. Keeping all of these deeper, and taller elements together allows the main kitchen “L-shape” to feel more open and spacious for the users near the sink and range wall.
Dura Supreme Cabinetry is painted White with a Pewter Accent Glaze and a decorative cabinet design on the end of the window wall includes glass inserts. A unique circle-shaped mullion door detail (shown below) is added to the top section of the doors and an open wine shelf is found on the bottom. Have limited space but want a customized cabinet layout? Our kitchen design team can make the most of your space with usable and stylish storage solutions that fit your space and budget.
Keeping the kitchen light and bright is a marble-look engineered quartz countertop selection from our Cambria Quartz collection. The stunning Skara Brae design gives the classic look of a marbled pattern with wide veins of warm grays. As a contrast to all of the white, a rich dark wood floor from our Bella Cera line has been installed throughout the new main floor of this home.
A Hickory Monte Viso floor in varied widths is now installed in the front entry, formal dining room, new kitchen, hallway, the living room, and hearth room. One key to a successful multi-room remodel is to try and keep a consistent flooring surface that marries all the spaces together. We also added custom window shades to all of the rooms we worked in. Our best-selling Transitions shades may seem like a modern style, but they look right at home in any space! This gorgeous traditionally-styled kitchen is a great example of that.
This style of shade allows you such versatile options for privacy and light. You can set them at any position that works for you with full or partial overlaps. Ask about the many colors, sizes, and options for these shades. We even offer cordless features like voice, and remote-controlled shades. Press play below to see the shades in this home in action.
The decorative valance above the kitchen sink is complimented by the wood hood and decorative mantle details above the cooking zone of the new design. Don’t want a metal hood as a part of your dream kitchen? You are not alone! We design many spaces using a wood hood cabinet with a blower insert installed within it. This allows the wall cabinet design to include the decorative hood instead of be disrupted by it. Want to see more examples of hood designs? Check out this board on our Pinterest page.
You have many options for how we can style this wood hood cabinet. In this kitchen we included beautiful carved wood corbels and a detailed shelf above the valance. These selections look even better with the Pewter accent glaze applied to help enhance all of the details. Including a shallow shelf like this above the cooktop provides a ledge for home accessories as well. Imagine this hood with a small sign or artwork leaning, or even a wreath or garland during the holidays.
The tile wall surfaces in this kitchen take the warm taupes and gray tones from the quartz counters and applies a glossy texture to the wall. A classic 3″ x 6″ subway tile shape is the man backsplash tile. This “Pardo” tile is from our Jeffrey Court line and the accent space above the cooktop is a Glazzio starburst series mosaic named “Kepplers Dusk”.
Of course the true star of a cooking zone is the range itself and this KitchenAid gas front-control range is a dream! A standard 30″ wide range with the look and features of a commercial model including convection and 5 burners on the cooktop. Shop appliances from Village Home Stores any day and any time online at villagehomestores.com and be sure to contact our expert team to get all of your questions answers and for our local low price guarantee!
A great range and cooktop surrounded by smart storage to be accessed right within reach of it! Pullout cabinets bookend the range and open to reveal a tray divider and spice rack. We offer many incredible specialty cabinet inserts that can be included in your kitchen or bath design from Village Home Stores. Ask your designer what your options are for both base cabinets and wall cabinets.
The best place to showcase the Skara Brae Cambria tops is the kitchen island top. The warm gray veining looks almost like rivers flowing through the piece. Cambria quartz adds drama to the look of your kitchen but no drama as far as upkeep! Engineered quartz is a wonderful surface for your counters. It is nonporous and requires no sealing to keep that quality. This surface is extremely durable and food-safe. That means you can truly get to work in your kitchen and it will clean up just like this when you are finished.
The kitchen island has some added details to it to help create a furniture look. We installed the Cambria with an Ogee Edge Profile which adds a detailed ledge all around the island top. We love how the light hits it and you can see the colors and patterns go throughout the entire slab. Each corner was also shaped to accent the wooden legs below.
To compliment the flooring woodtones, the kitchen island was installed in a Cherry “Java” stain as a contrast to the perimeter cabinetry. We included carved wooden legs at each corner and arched valances as an apron below the overhang. A wooden furniture baseboard molding completes the look. This island design offers a centrally-located work surface and a comfortable space for two to sit.
We widened doorways and also worked in other areas of this main level including the formal dining room, a front living room and this hearth room (shown below) just off of the kitchen. There we added a dry bar area to be used when entertaining guests. During the holidays do you find your own kitchen full of people? Adding a custom sideboard, dry, or wet bar to an adjacent room like this allows you to keep people out of your kitchen when you entertain.
A glass-front beverage cooler, base cabinet with drawer, wall cabinets, wine storage, and even stemware holders have all been included in this space. Like this look and want to save an idea for your own project with Village Home Stores? See more of this entire Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen and lower-level remodel project over here on our Houzz page.
Our best-selling diode LED tape lighting is the perfect enhancement for a bar area like this because you can leave these low-voltage lights on as ambient lighting all of the time. This lighting is not just for the underside of cabinetry either. We use it often inside of our glass-door cabinetry. Check out the new look the fireplace wall received in the hearth room:

The warmth of a wood stained kitchen is always an inviting look for a design. We absolutely love how these Bluegrass, Iowa clients took their modern eclectic tastes and translated them with their designer at Village Home Stores into a kitchen. This new design suites the style of the home while still reflecting an updated look. Maple Dura Supreme Cabinetry in the “Kendall” door and “Clove” stain have been accented with a “Black” accent paint on the edges and details.
The mix of warm woods and views of the Iowa countryside out of the windows evoke a connection with nature. Another wonderful natural connection of bringing the outdoors in is the use of natural stone countertops. Natural stone is a fantastic surface choice and a material that is timeless and rich in history. In this kitchen we installed Granite counters in the Makala Bay color.
As much as quartz companies can attempt it, never can you recreate the natural character and unique opportunity you have to invest in natural stone for your project. Having a large island top like this is a great way to showcase the natural variations in colors, materials, and veining that natural stones offer. A fun and exciting step in the natural stone selection process with your Village Home Stores designer is the option to visit the Epic Stone warehouse in Davenport to hand-select your stone slabs. Learn more about this local selection process and get directions and details for Epic Stone LLC here in a past blog post.
This kitchen design includes a corner sink with granite plant shelf that looks out two windows. Ask a Village designer if your space allows for a corner sink design. We love the lighting selections made for this kitchen. The pendant light fixture above the kitchen sink makes a statement without blocking the light and view outside. Textured seedy glass on this “Stone” pendant light from Capital Lighting adds texture and style to the space.
The kitchen includes accents of dark bronze, matte black, and even some brushed gold. The cabinet hardware is the “Highland Ridge” series from our Amerock line. Black appliances we also used in this design and they perfectly complement the Black painted accent glaze on the surrounding cabinet doors and drawers.
With the natural granite counters as a focal point of the overall look, a more subtle wall tile was desired. We installed 3″ x 6″ “Highland Park” Subway Tiles in the Antique White color to compliment the background colors of the granite slabs. If you would like to see a full album of photos from this finished remodel, click here to see it on our Houzz profile. The full wall of tile look so clean because we tucked all of the wall switches and outlets up underneath the cabinetry!
This unique modular track system is from our legrand line. It as so many incredible accessories now available including bluetooth speakers, phone charging stations, tablet docks, and more! The best thing is how versatile this system is. All of these components including the outlets can be moved as needed! If you would like to learn more about this system and see it in action then check out this episode of the Village Home Show where we invite a lighting expert from our team to a jobsite to show is more about this undercabinet system.
A single-step way to update any space is by changing out the light fixture! As we were working on this kitchen remodel we also selected new light fixtures for other areas of the home. We love the new dinette light that was selected just off the kitchen. This modern take on a classic brass chandelier compliments the home and the new kitchen style. The “Zander” light by Capital Lighting (shown below) is available in many sizes.
Mixed metals is a continued trend for all home interior categories. We see it in kitchen designs, home accessories, and fixtures like lighting. The formal dining room in this home now has the “Kearney” 5 light chandelier from our Savoy House line. This fixture is a blend of Vintage Black and Warm Brass finishes. Clean lines and great design are always in style!
Did you know that you can shop all of our lighting online, anytime? Sort by style, finish, location, etc and even login to view you lighting estimates and selections curated for you from our experts.
