Davenport IA- Basement Bathroom Gets the 5 Star Treatment

Just beyond the bedroom door of the Home Bar we shared in the last post, is a bedroom suite with a stunning new bathroom. This space immediately fools you into believing you have just checked into a 5-star Spa. A warm-gray palette and a jaw-dropping lighting statement make this one of our favorite projects of 2017! We think after you take a look around you will agree.

DuraSupreme cabinetry in the Shaker door and painted “Pearl” finish have been designed to offer as much storage as possible for the space. Stacked crown molding reaches all the way to the ceiling and plenty of drawer storage is within reach of either sink.

Two tall cabinets in the corner offer linen storage on shelves. The best way to get a feel for the layout and space is to look around! Press play below to take a look around this spa-like getaway complete with a custom tiled shower area:

The most remarkable elements in this finished design are the lighted mirrors. These back-lit mirrors were an idea our client had hoped we could ingrate into the design. Custom mirrors mounted with our Diode LED lighting behind them turns out to be a match made in heaven!

Behind the custom mirrors from Steve’s Mirror and Glass we mounted to LED tape to back-light them. This Diode tape is low-voltage AND low-profile. That makes it perfect for unique custom projects like this. This same back-lighting look can be used in any area of your home. Imagine an entryway mirror, artwork, or a long mirror in a walk-in closet space. Press play below to peek behind the mirrors:

Proof that if you have an idea for your dream space… just ask! We have the resources to try our very best to make it happen. Clear communication of your budget and timeline is always key. Your team at Village Home Stores can help you decide what elements of you “dream” spaces are a must-have items for the overall look and budget or if there are alternatives. We want to keep you on track AND on budget.

The cabinetry in this bathroom was ordered with what is called “five-piece drawer fronts” to give each drawer the added detail of rails and stiles. Of course what you can’t see in these photos are other features like dovetailed drawerboxes, self-closing drawers, and soft-close doors. The area shown below is installed at a lowered height and now is fit for a seated makeup vanity area.

Bathrooms can be such a unique canvas for a stylish space. There are so many surfaces and fixtures that can add to an overall finished design. The Kohler “Symbol” faucets are absolutely gorgeous in this bathroom. They are mounted aside a Demi-Lav sink perfectly named “Wading Pool”.

The vanity areas have Cambria quartz counters in the “Berwyn” design and standard Eased edge profile. Quartz is a fantastic choice for a bathroom counter because it is stylish and extremely durable. Heat from hair appliances and makeup solutions and removers are no threat to the sparkling surface. Read more about the quartz investment in this previous post about our recent trip to Cambria.

Berwyn includes so many colors that are right on target for trends in the Kitchen & Bath industry. It pairs so well with bright whites and nearly all varieties of grays. A large walk-in tiled shower is always at the top of many bathroom wishlists. Take a look at the finished shower in this bathroom!

Because of the layout, a shower door isn’t needed. In fact there is even a turn in the shape to offer the user privacy. Right at the entry is a towel bar that warms your towel as you shower. The Jeeves E curved towel warmer is the perfect treat-yourself detail for a shower like this.

8″ x 32″ woodlook tile from the Woodland series in “Rectified Maple” is paired with accents of a Pebble mosaic tile in the Fiji Cream color. The tile from Sunderland Brothers looks perfectly on-trend and unique while still remaining neutral. Woodgrain tile gives you a unique look in an easy-toclean surface.

That same accent pebbled tile is used as the shower floor. By using this textured pebble tile as the shower floor, you are treated to a foot massage every time you use it!  Plus if the warm towel waiting for you isn’t enough pampering, just turn on the heated floors for you once you exit the shower.

It is no mystery why we are so in love with how this bathroom turned out. It checks all the right boxes: stylish, inviting, unique… oh and did we mention the client was just the bee’s knees?!?!  We love it when a customer is just as enthusiastic about the process and the project as we are. She was wonderful to work with on the whole project. This Lower Level remodel project includes this bath, a basement bar area, craft room and home gym space. See the full project here on our Houzz page. We hope to very soon feature it on an upcoming episode of the Village Home Show. Are you ready to talk about your OWN project with our store?

Edgebrooke Homes- Koch’s “White Drift” Paint Finish and a Viking Appliance Suite.

We had hoped that by the time we shared this “White Drift” painted kitchen that we would have a Winter Wonderland outside our windows to help make it even more charming. No snow yet in Bettendorf Iowa but it doesn’t stop the style in this kitchen from “piling” up! We were thrilled to provide design and materials for this QCBR Parade of Homes entry from Edgebrooke Homes. The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous.

A kitchen can still be bright and light without being solid white! Koch Cabinetry has a new painted finish available named “White Drift” that can be applied to many woods. No matter if that name makes you think of sand dunes or snow, it’s the perfect way to describe the layers of color and character it brings to a design.

Shown here on a Rustic Beech wood and Easton door, the choice of wood species also includes rustic knots and character on the doors and drawers. Lighting trends in kitchen design are moving away from groups of three small pendants and instead replacing that concept with two larger scale fixtures. This provides a big impact of style and scale to a space. The two “Labette” lantern-shaped lights from our SeaGull line are actually considered foyer lights. Here above the kitchen island, the size and style looks perfect!
White Drift painted kitchen with island. Kitchen design by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

A large single-level island is located at the center of the design. Here you find the kitchen sink undermounted to quartz counters. A single drill faucet with pullout spray arm keeps the counter from needing multiple holes drilled into it. The only other thing atop the island is a garbage disposal button (shown on right of faucet). Cambria quartz in Berwyn design. Kitchen design by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Cambria Quartz in the “Berwyn” design is the perfect pairing with the wood finish. Not every kitchen requires a high contrast of material selections. Here the subtle tone-on-tone approach keeps the space feeling open and bright. The refrigerator wall of the kitchen design is balanced in scale by a tall pantry cabinet on the left side.
White Drift painted kitchen with Viking Appliance package. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

But that’s not just a pantry cabinet, it’s a hidden walk-in pantry. Tall pantry fronts can be ordered to match your kitchen cabinets and can turn any available space into hidden storage potential. In new homes it can be easier to plan on having the pantry space available but don’t forget about remodel projects too! Consider current closets or desk areas that may make great pantry areas. Your designer at Village Home Stores can help.

We love any opportunity to include pantry fronts like this in designs. We do show an example of this concept in our Geneseo showroom so stop by to see it! Press play below to see this pantry front cabinet section in Betendorf, IA in action:

That same wall with the pantry and refrigerator also includes a stylish microwave drawer. This kitchen has been fit with an appliance package from our Viking Range line.  The microwave shown is a 24″ wide undercounter model that gives a sleek built-in look next to the 36″ wide counter-depth Viking refrigerator. One of the many reasons we love carrying the Viking line is that it is a professional-level appliances product that you can build an ENTIRE kitchen appliance package with including the refrigerator. This is a huge advantage instead of the mix-and-match approach many other high-end brands require.

On the other wall of the kitchen is the cooking center of the design. Two large pots and pans drawer bases flank a 36″ wide 6-burner gas range also from Viking Range. Above the range is a decorative wood hood fit with a Broan built-in PowerPack hood insert (see below for view in).

The 36″ gas range selected for this kitchen is full of exceptional features. Some of our favorites include six sealed burners above and a GourmetGlo™ infared broiler within. This unit is even available in many unique colors for a fun impact in your design! We are also so proud to mention that Viking is another one of our Appliance lines that is manufactured in the United States.

Prophetstown, IL- A Kitchen Remodel Transforms This Ranch Home

We recently finished a full kitchen remodel at this ranch home in Prophetstown, IL. The entire process was managed from start to finish by the Complete Project Management Program at Village Home Stores.  This means that we managed the entire process from early on in the bidding and designing phases, through the final project walkthrough. Take a look at this beautiful and bright new kitchen!
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen designed by Chris Robinson and remodeled completely from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Of course this space didn’t start out giving out such bright and spacious feelings to guests and users. It began as an open but dated kitchen. Unique traits such as the wall ovens in a brick wall helped to give it an edge. With a new homeowner in 2017 came the opportunity to update and upgrade this space.
before-kitchen

Don’t worry we kept that brick! We did make quite a few upgrades in layout and materials throughout the rest of the space. This kitchen has gone from a medium-toned wood to a bright painted white. That change alone transforms the look and feel of the kitchen for guests and users. One upgrade we should begin with is that this is now a kitchen that includes 4 ovens…wait what?!?! Yes FOUR OVENS!
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with KitchenAid appliances. Remodeled completely from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Allow us to walk you through a tour of the new cooking center in the kitchen. A 24″ single wall oven, 24″ combination microwave/wall oven, and a slide-in gas range that includes a lower baking drawer. That offers all the convenience of each of the units for day-to-day use and lifestyle. But for those few times every year when entertaining, this KitchenAid® package offers 4 ovens all can be used at 4 different temperatures!
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with KitchenAid appliances. Remodeled completely from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Many times our customers are drawn to a slide-in model of a range for the look and integration into a clean new kitchen design it allows. KitchenAid® has made such incredible changes to these sleek new models by including many features and benefits that were once reserved for their larger, more commercial style units. One new innovative feature we must mention is the shift from a “warming drawer” to the new baking drawer. Yes you can still set it on a “keep warm” function or even store your baking sheets in it when not in use. However, new changes as to how you select the setting of this drawer have opened up the opportunity to now use this space to bake or slow-cook items at a different temperature from the main oven area. All of these great features PLUS convection in the oven in a 30″ model! With all of this talk of baking temperatures and capacity we don’t want to breeze over the fact that the gas cooktop on this model is enviable as well!
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with beveled subway tile and chimney hood. | VillageHomeStores.com

5 burners that collectively range from 5,000-19,000 BTU’s. That allows you to shift from a rolling boil to a very low simmer almost immediately. Above the cooktop we have installed a wall-mount 30″ canopy hood in Stainless Steel. This hood has been fit with a re-circulation kit. We would classify this kitchen as a great example of what New Traditional is becoming in the Midwest region. A smart working layout and durable materials with clean lines help to keep a kitchen functional and beautiful. New Traditonal is also about including great textures (hello brick) and adding historic details like the schoolhouse shaped pendants used here.
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with seating. Remodeled completely from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

We love that these “Garvey” pendants by Savoy House allow light out of the fixture and also through. Using clear glass here helps to keep the space more open and bright. The shape does lend itself to that old world look and adds style. The metal finish of the fixtures also helps reflect light and compliments the Stainless Appliances without duplicating it.
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with schoolhouse pendants by Savoy House. | VillageHomeStores.com

We realize we jumped right into an appliance tour without showcasing the new kitchen itself. An L-shaped kitchen design with a large single-level island fills the kitchen with storage and surfaces that are usable and accessible. The arch of the countertop at the center offers up an overhang space for the island seating.

Cambria® Quartz counters in the “Berwyn” design have been installed in a stylish “Ogee” edge profile. This decorative edge looks right at home in this space. With such a bright room and material selection, the light hits the edges of the Ogee detail and really helps to showcase the quartz color and details like that arched island top.
Cambria Berwyn counters in Ogee edge profile. | VillageHomeStores.com

Quartz is a fantastic choice for a countertop investment. Once installed it is maintenance free and will look as gorgeous 15 years from now as it does today in these photos. With so many designs and edges to select from, you can almost certainly find something for any space.
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with beveled subway tile and LED lighting. | VillageHomeStores.com

The usable space of the kitchen now seems like a larger area even though we didn’t open up or remove any walls. In fact we added to the cabinetry in the new kitchen design. On the opposite end of the kitchen used to sit a closet pantry area behind bi-fold doors.
before-hutch

Now that pantry area has become a built-in hutch and sideboard part of the new kitchen design. Still a location for great storage, there is plenty of shelf space above plus deep base cabinets with roll-out shelves below. An open counter area now allows this area to be used for serving while entertaining. Imagine it set up as a drink station during holiday get-togethers.
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with built in hutch area. Remodeled completely from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

As you look at the above and below images it is very clear that the best way to showcase an area like this in your project continues to be our Diode LED lighting system. Keep in mind these photos were taken during the day. Even so, the lighting is what takes all of this design and material to the next level. What good is it to invest is such beautiful products if you can’t see them?
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with beveled subway tile, herringbone marble inlay and LED lighting. | VillageHomeStores.com

There is a beveled subway tile throughout the new kitchen from our Rittenhouse Series. The color is “Arctic White Gloss”. It is important to note a very updated look to the classic subway tile of the past: gray grout. White subway tile with a gray grout installation is such a great look. It is a new approach to an old look and we continue to love every job we get to install with it. Another area that we added cabinetry to is an angled, shallow cabinet section designed for a TV on an open wall.
A Prophetstown, IL kitchen with angled TV cabinet. | VillageHomeStores.com

Just enough of a counter space for a flatscreen but look at all that added storage below! The cabinetry in the kitchen is from our Koch Classic line. The doorstyle is named “Bristol” on a paint-grade maple. This flat-panel door works well for may styles and tastes. This kitchen it was ordered with 5-piece drawer fronts and a decorative outside edge applied to the doors and drawers. In a bold contrast to the white painted cabinets is the beautiful new hardwood flooring beneath everything.

Random widths of 3/4″ thick maple from our Bella Cera Alessandria series is finished in the “Padua” finish. A painted white kitchen always helps to make a space seem larger and more brighter both day and night. The light catches the texture and varied widths so beautifully. See the full album of photos from this kitchen here on our Houzz page.
Cabinets all the way to the ceiling with glass in top section. | VillageHomeStores.com

Bright white cabinets that reach all the way to the ceiling. We have found that sentence to be so common when we ask our clients what their dream kitchen looks like. The great news is that look can be interpreted in so many styles and budgets. Here it looks right at home paired with coved crown molding and with top sections cut for glass creating a clerestory look.

Bettendorf, IA- Dark Gray Kitchen Rich With Storage & Style

This Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen has been completely transformed from a medium oak cabinet with laminate tops…
kitchen-before-and-after

…to a rich look of dark gray stained cherry with sparkling tile and counters! A brand new kitchen layout has been planned to now fit a long, unique island. DuraSupreme’s flat-panel “Highland” door is in a cherry wood and the rich “Peppercorn” stain allows the woodgrain to peek through. The new cabinets stretch all the way to the ceiling with a subtle crown molding. A beveled undercabinet molding completes the look beneath the wall cabinets.

A striking compliment to the Peppercorn stain on the cabinetry, is a suite of appliances in KitchenAid®’s new Black Stainless Steel finish. The first in the industry to introduce this true stainless finish. The new kitchen plan removes the original peninsula and now extends the cabinetry all the way down the wall to make space for a tall cabinet fit with a combination wall oven and microwave.

Convection features in the oven AND microwave allow this model to function as a double oven when needed. Wall ovens are fantastic for allowing you a view into the oven without bending over. When items need attention, use the SatinGlide™ Roll-Out Extension Rack for easy access. Across the kitchen is a section of tall pantry cabinets surrounding a 5- door Black Stainless Steel refrigerator.

This French Door model includes a 3-tier freezer drawer plus two refrigerated drawers. This is a full-depth model refrigerator. Read more about the differences between full/standard depth and counter depth refrigerator in this recent blog post. With the original peninsula design out, there is now room for a kitchen island. Our designer at Village Home Stores created an island design with plenty of storage and even seating in this kitchen.

A rectangle island top is extended into a rounded seating area supported by a cabinetry post beneath. The post supports the counter and allows 4-5 barstools to pull up for a comfortable casual dining space. Cambria® Quartz in the “Galloway” design ads sparkle and drama to the kitchen design. The warm grays and soft whites in this quartz allow it to be a great choice for many kitchen and bath projects.

The island support post serves double-duty as a hidden storage area. Why build an empty box of panels and trim if it can be functional too?! Speaking of creative storage, this kitchen is packed with it! When you open up your Tupperware cabinet at home are you fearful of an avalanche of lids every time? Then you need this Rev-A-Shelf® insert in your life!

Have you ever seen a beautiful new tile backsplash that immediately looks crowded and busy because of all the outlets and switches that interrupt it? Introducing the adorne® undercabinet system by legrand®. Plenty of power, light, and innovative options that are hidden out of sight underneath your wall cabinetry.
A Bettendorf, IA kitchen with legrand undercabinet lighting and outlet system. | VillageHomeStores.com

This system is modular so you can move outlets and even add accessories like tablet cradles and bluetooth speakers. Like this look? Check out this other recent kitchen remodel we completed that also includes the adorn® system.

The tracks are installed at the seam where your kitchen wall meets the back of your wall cabinetry. This keeps it nearly hidden from plain sight when viewed within the kitchen. With many options and accessories available, the best way to get all of your questions answered about this product is to visit our award-winning showroom at 105 S State Street in Geneseo, IL and see it installed!

With the new kitchen installed came the opportunity to also put in a matching custom bench seat. A custom cushion could be made for the bench seat but this customer loves the look of the woodgrain so much they have left it uncovered. On the subject of woodgrain, note the gorgeous new flooring in this kitchen. It is actually not hardwood but instead a Luxury Vinyl Plank from our Adura line. The series is named “Ashford Walnut” and the color is “Foxwood”.

A long hinge allows for the storage access door to be opened and left open without slamming shut. Think of all of the small and unusual spaces in your own home that could be potential storage areas. Don’t hesitate to ask about your options with Village Home Stores to help make the most of these spaces.

Another small space that received a storage upgrade was the corner of the kitchen shown below. Added storage and a small landing space for setting down items. This angled base cabinet can be used in a number of ways in a kitchen design. Here it stands alone as a wonderful storage niche.

Hazelwood Homes- Kitchen With Rich Birch Wood and Shimmering Cambria Quartz

We have the opportunity to design so many unique kitchen spaces throughout the Quad Cities Region. Each and every design is unique from the next and the materials selected are just as unique and each client and home. It seems like we have shared a LOT of painted white kitchens lately on the blog but rest assured that isn’t all that we do! This Geneseo, IL kitchen from Hazelwood Homes is a wonderful example:
Birch Mocha kitchen in Geneseo, IL with Cambria Quartz and KitchenAid appliances for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

There is truly nothing more inviting than a warm and cozy woodgrain kitchen. Rich, wood cabinetry is paired with warm lighting and materials throughout. The look is tailored and high-end but the design and setting is so inviting. Koch Classic Cabinetry in the Westbrook doorstyle and Birch “Mocha” stain has been accented with “Black” highlights. The cabinets stretch all the way to the ceiling and the height of the wall cabinets allow for a double panel door design (see below).

Beautiful and classic subway tile is installed as the kitchen backsplash throughout and even extends to surround the kitchen window and above. One of our unique Transitions blinds is installed in the window. An arched valance detail above the kitchen sink is repeated in the custom wood hood above the cooktop.

A matching wood hood can be ordered to be placed within your kitchen design from Village Home Stores. The same raised center panels from the doors are used as a detail in hood and sink valances. A hood blower/insert can be concealed within these wood hood cabinets. These inserts can be ordered in a number of configurations and powers. That way you can customize the look AND function of your ventilation to fit your needs.

A 36″ wide 5-burner gas cooktop from KitchenAid® offers a versitile cooktop layout including a range from a high heat of 20K BTUs to a simmer of just 6k BTUs. Full width cast iron grates make it easy to slide from burner to burner. The CookShield finish helps to protect the cooktop from high-temperature cooking stains.

But what about small appliances? How does this kitchen not seem so cluttered? The coffeepot and toaster are hidden behind the door of a corner appliance garage cabinet. This new style of hinged door appliance garage is a welcome update from the accordion door styles of the past. Another wonderful storage solution hidden from sight is this hidden walk-in pantry:

We can order walk-through pantry door fronts to match your kitchen as well! These double doors open to reveal a huge walk-in pantry behind the wall oven area. Press play below to see the tall door open to reveal the pantry entrance.

A double wall oven by KitchenAid® is paired with an over-the-counter microwave model from Sharp®. Over-the-counter microwaves allow for you to keep a decorative hood element to your design but eliminate the need to set a microwave oven on the countertop. This model from Sharp blends well with our other appliance brands for a seamless package look.

The innovative new 5-door refrigerator models by KitchenAid® are stylish and packed with amazing features. The KitchenAid® brand was the first in the industry to introduce a 5-door model. The two small drawers in the center of the unit are refrigeration. The left drawer includes 5 preset temperatures: meat/fish, drinks, greens/herbs, deli/cheese, and even a thaw/marinate setting. The right drawer is ideal for produce storage with a built-in produce preserving featureKitchenAid 5 door french door refrigerator in Stainless Steel. | VillageHomeStores.com

This kitchen is a two-toned design that includes a contrasting finish on the batwing-shaped kitchen island. The same Koch Westbrook doorstyle from the kitchen perimeter is painted White with am “Umber” highlight on the door and drawer front details. Cambria Quartz in the “Berwyn” design completes the look in the stylish beveled edge profile.

The island ends and back has been fit with custom doors and furniture baseboard molding for finished look. An island light from our Artcraft line hangs above the center of the kitchen island. Of course no complete kitchen can be showcased this well without our favorite secret weapon… our Diode LED undercabinet lighting. This space wouldn’t look as warm and inviting without it.

Geneseo, IL- Kitchen Remodel With Warm Birch Cabinets and Unique Quartz

The kitchen in any home can be the busiest room in the house. That is why we think it is so important to make it a space that suggests comfort as well as function. This Geneseo, IL kitchen invites you right in even by just viewing the photos. A warm and inviting selection of woods and other materials we know you will love.
A Geneseo, IL kitchen including birch cabinets and Harlech Cambria Quartz | VillageHomeStores.com

Koch Classic cabinetry in the “Seneca” doorstyle and Birch “Briarwood” stain is a rich, medium toned wood that warms up the overall look. A black accent glaze has been applied to the cabinets to help enhance the edges of the doors and drawers as well as the details on moldings and finished ends. That black accent color is repeated in the dining table and chairs.

A tall section of cabinetry surrounds the refrigerator in this kitchen design. A wide pantry cabinet opens to reveal adjustable rollout shelving inside. At 24″ deep, this cabinet can store a lot of dry goods directly next to the freshfood storage in the refrigerator.

A small landing space of countertop allows a space for loading and unloading pantry items and a wonderful location apart from the food prep areas for daily mail and charging devices. Applied doors on the exposed ends of cabinetry give a polished off and complete look to the kitchen design.

On the opposite side of the refrigerator is another tall cabinet. This helps to “cap” off the refrigerator and give a more built-in and customized look overall. Because of the high-traffic location right by the back doorway, an angled tall cabinet was used. This keeps the cabinet from projecting too far into the kitchen but still allows for a lot of storage within.
A Geneseo, IL kitchen including tall angled pantry. | VillageHomeStores.com

Across from the refrigerator is the sink area of the kitchen. A double-well farm sink is the center of all attention beneath the kitchen window. A single-lever control kitchen faucet with pullout sprayer is installed for the sink and a reverse osmosis water system to the right of that.
A Geneseo, IL kitchen including white farmsink with low center divider. | VillageHomeStores.comThis farmsink is unique in that it includes a popular low-divider feature we have been seeing a lot of in composite undermounted sink options over the past few years. A lowered center divider allows for the sink to be filled when needed to a 1/3-1/2 fill. By having a lowered center divider, this keeps the sink overall area available for washing large items without making a watery mess on the nearby countertops.
A Geneseo, IL kitchen including white farmsink with low center divider. | VillageHomeStores.com

This farmhouse sink is undermounted to a gorgeous quartz top from Cambria® Quartz. The “Harlech” design is a beautiful blend of neutral earth-tones with a sparkling gray veining throughout. This gives the look of a natural stone with all of the benefits of quartz. The tops truly dazzle and are showcased by our Diode LED low-voltage lighting installed underneath the wall cabinetry.
A Geneseo, IL kitchen including 1x2 Crema Cappuccino backsplash tile. | VillageHomeStores.com

This system of lighting is a definite must-have item when building or remodeling. There is no better way to showcase your new space than to add this system. It washes your countertop and backsplash area with consistent light that can even be dimmed for an ambient look. Yes it helps your kitchen look amazing but it is extremely functional as well! Task lighting is a key element in any functional kitchen design.A Geneseo, IL kitchen including birch Harlech Cambria Quartz. | VillageHomeStores.com

This space is warm and inviting. The quartz tops in this kitchen truly add a unique look and a natural element to the space. We can’t say enough about how happy our customers are that choose to invest in Cambria®. The selections of designs are truly top-notch and best of all, it is maintenance free once installed! This quartz product is manufactured in the US and represents both classic and on-trend options. Find out more about Cambria® in this recent blog post.
A Geneseo, IL kitchen including unique adorne outlets and switches. | VillageHomeStores.com

The adorne series of switches and outlets from our legrand line is a stylish choice for the new kitchen. Bright white basic outlets would stand out against the new tile. Instead, these unique switches add function and style to the space. The color of the plates is named “Ashton Tan”.  A 1’x2″ tile named “Crema Cappuccino” from Epic Stone has been installed throughout the new kitchen space. It is a wonderful compliment to the lighter colors found in the quartz design. Slight variations from tile to tile don’t compete with the business of the Harlech design.
A Geneseo, IL kitchen including Koch Birch Briarwood cabinetry. | VillageHomeStores.com

Not every kitchen can accommodate an island in the given space. Sometimes including a peninsula is still the best layout choice to offer added base cabinet storage and counter surface. The back and exposed end of a kitchen peninsula still needs to be finished. This kitchen has been ordered with a back panel custom fit for the length of the peninsula back. The panel mimics the raised center panel design of the kitchen cabinet doors. The “end” of the peninsula is a 12″ deep cabinet with double doors for added storage.
A Geneseo, IL kitchen including peninsula with stainless KitchenAid dishwasher. | VillageHomeStores.com

The side of that “end” cabinet has been treated with an applied door to look like a cabinet when viewing from the interior of the kitchen layout. A stainless steel dishwasher from KitchenAid® is quiet at just 43 decibels. It includes an express wash option and adjustable upper and lower rack layouts. Love this kitchen?

Hazelwood Homes- Coal Valley, IL Kitchen With Family Friendly Farmhouse Style

We are so blessed to be able to become a part of the building process for our customers. Anything we can do to make that process more easy and of course exciting is such a great part of our work. This new home built in Coal Valley, IL by Hazelwood Homes is one of our favorite recently completely projects. This busy family wanted a stylish space but one that can be enjoyed and lived in as well.
White painted kitchen and nearby dining room in farmhouse style. New home in Coal Valley, IL built by Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

An “open concept” layout is certainly the direction most new home plans are going. This home includes a great room that opens up into a dining space and then the kitchen. Now casual family moments and even more formal meals can all be shared within this family-friendly space. Having the kitchen within reach of the play areas and main social spaces of a home can be so helpful for families with younger children. Even though we are calling this kitchen “family friendly” we still believe it still could grace the cover of a glossy magazine don’t you?
White painted cabinets in a farmhouse style kitchen in the Quad Cities. Home built by Hazelwood Homes | VillageHomeStores.com

Flat-panel, “Ridgegate” cabinets in a “White” paint are a classic choice from our Koch line. Modern Farmhouse details like Hickory hand-scraped wood floors and a farm sink help to nudge this Transitional style kitchen into the Farmhouse Transitional style category. Wall cabinets stretch just shy of the ceilings leaving enough room for a stacked crown molding detail. So much storage throughout plus a glass-door corner pantry area (shown below with someone sneaking a snack).

“Fossil Grey” quartz counters mimic an almost cement slab look on the perimeter of the kitchen and Cambria® Quartz “Brittanicca” graces the center of the kitchen on the island. This beautiful look of natural stone suggests marble with the no-maintenance appeal of Cambria®! This non-porous, durable product is a fantastic choice for counters in this busy family hub!
White painted transitional farmhouse style kitchen in a Coal Valley, IL. home built by Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

With the wall cabinets so tall, a stacked look to the doors was desired to avoid long, exaggerated doors to open and close. Many kitchens with this look include floating shelves. The look can be great, but difficult to keep clean. You also become limited to weight the floating shelves may hold. Consider glass-front cabinets as an option to still give an open look. One section of this kitchen design has been arranged as a built-in hutch area (see above).
Kitchen in Coal Valley, IL with glass door cabinets. | VillageHomeStores.com

The main kitchen perimeter includes just glass inserts in the top section for a “clerestory” effect. This hutch area section includes glass door inserts entirely. The finished look is clean and stylish. We love how the dishes and glassware are able to be displayed but kept from dust. The kitchen backsplash adds to the white-on-white space a new texture and design detail. An “Arabesque” shape tile in a glossy “Coronado” color  helps add curvy intertwining lines to soften the look of the kitchen. Of course we can never mention a stunning backsplash without also reminding you it is being washed with light by our Diode undercabinet lighting system. There is no better way to showcase your new kitchen investments than with this low-voltage lighting.

The refrigerator for this kitchen is located right at the entrance from the Dining area. A KitchenAid® 20 cu. ft. counter-depth model has a deep cabinet above and a refrigerator end panel on the right side of the unit for a built in look. A “family-friendly” kitchen without water in the door?!? Well, this French Door unit may be shallower to allow maximum walkway throughout the kitchen…but it does still have water and ice!
french-door-refrigerator

The filtered water is just inside of the door and an icemaker is located down in the freezer drawer. Including the icemaker and ice storage down below frees up more space in the fresh food storage area that can become quickly crowded in a counter-depth model. Cooking and baking just got a lot more stylish and easier for this family as well!
White painted kitchen in a Coal Valley, IL with 48 inch KitchenAid gas range. Home by Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

A 48″ wide commercial-style KitchenAid®  gas range is the focal point of the entire kitchen. With two ovens and 6 burners this duel fuel range can prepare a meal for the smallest or largest of crowds! The ovens include Convection baking, roasting, and broiling settings plus the KitchenAid® EasyConvect™ takes the intimidation and guesswork out of convection.

An easy-to-clean electric chrome griddle is also a part of this 48″ wide unit. What an all-star appliance choice! Village Home Stores isn’t just Cabinetry and Counters. We also offer Appliance Sales and Service, Lighting, Flooring, and Blinds and Shades. Did you know that when you are building a home you can purchase the products you need from all departments of our store and end up receiving credit for free lighting because of it!? We offer a Local Low Price Guarantee plus a Lighting Bundle Program that can save you a significant amount of money!

We love the lighting that was selected throughout this entire home. The kitchen lighting is so perfectly paired with the style of the space. It keeps the space feeling light and bright and doesn’t distract from the other focal areas of the kitchen. Above the farmhouse style kitchen sink is a white and chrome pendant light by Golden Lighting.

Working with an expert lighting staff when building makes the designing and selection process easier on you. Don’t spend months and months driving all around the area to handfuls of specialty shops. Come to the experts at Village Home Stores. Above the kitchen island hang two “Tabby” glass mini pendants from our Feiss line.

We love how the clear glass keeps the space feeling bright and open. The kitchen island includes a microwave drawer from Sharp®. This microwave option is wonderful for busy families. Easy to reach and plenty of counter space above it, microwave drawers can be a wonderful option for your kitchen design. The microwave controls for this unit can be found on the tilt-out panel on the top frame of the unit. This sleek new design allows for the Sharp® unit to pair well with many appliance styles and brands.

Product Profile: Our Trip To Visit Cambria Quartz

At Village Home Stores we are proud to seek out and offer as many American-made products as possible to our customers. A perk of making this decision comes with the access to visit these brands and see who is behind the name. Over the past year, our design staff has been invited a handful of times to visit Cambria® Quartz. Last week we documented our trip to visit Cambria® so you can see for yourself why we are excited about offering this brand to you.Read about our trip to Minnesota to visit the Cambria gallery on 7th at the Village Home Stores blog. | VillageHomeStores.comIf you have been considering your countertop options you certainly know by now that there are countless brands of quartz options available for your home. One of the things we have learned in the Kitchen and Bath industry since we opened our doors in 1984 is that people buy from people. Our customers choose us not because of what we carry, but the service they have come to expect from our store. So in that same spirit, allow us to share with you why we are proud to offer Cambria® to our customers.cambria-gallery

The staff is enthusiastic and passionate at every level:

We witnessed this from the gallery to the office and all the way through the fabrication process. Everyone involved in the product truly believes it is the best available. We were allowed to toured the factory and watch the manufacturing of the slabs. Not only were the facilities impeccable clean, the employees were genuinely happy. At one point we were up above the running line and we could look down at the process but also across the room to a training room. Staff (who were not aware we could see them) were engaged in the training, laughing and seemed to be enjoying whatever it was they were learning about.  Everyone at work  we met greeted us with a smile.Read about our trip to Minnesota to visit the Cambria Quartz facilities on the Village Home Stores blog. | VillageHomeStores.com

Cambria® Quartz truly are thought leaders in this industry:

A portion of the manufacturing process was not a part of our factory tour. This is completely understandable as Cambria® has always been on the very pulse of what is new and exciting the their industry. From on-trend colors and finishes (yay! matte finish), to pattern applications that could fool even mother nature herself. We always look forward to seeing what new launches they have available once they are ready.Cambria Quartz Crystal | VillageHomeStores.com

A hands-on approach means a Limited Lifetime Guarantee for our customers:

Product is tested and inspected the entire process. This begins even when materials arrive. While we walked through one of the labs a delivery truck of quartz had arrived and quartz crystals and dust were being prepared for a rigorous amount of tests. These tests are completed before product was even accepted and the driver could leave. The entire innovative process from the craftsmen and women at Cambria® allows them to proudly offer a Lifetime Limited Warranty to our customers. Touring the manufacturing and fabrication facilities were truly a highlight of our trip. We also visited the Cambria® Gallery on 7th in downtown Minneapolis, MN. Cambria gallery on 7th Minneapolis, MN | VillageHomeStores.com
The gallery includes a large showroom space featuring full slabs of the current Cambria® designs as well as installed product displays. It was a dream to walk the aisles of full-scale designs and see some of the newest options available in person.

A stage at the center of the gallery is used for trade events as well as concerts aired locally to the community. We recognized a lot of names on the walls of musicians who have paid a visit including Aledo-native Margo Price!

margo-price

Of course Cambria® was so kind to us throughout our trip showing us the very best Minneapolis has to offer in food and activities. Because…. well, SUMMER, we wrapped up our trip with a networking event at a  Minnesota Twins game at Target Field. The Cambria® Design Center at Target Field was the perfect setting to chat with all of the other visiting Kitchen and Bath designers, fabricators, and installers also in town to visit with us. Did you just have had an “a-ha moment” when we mentioned baseball and Cambria® together? You may have noticed over the past few years ads for Cambria® Quartz behind home plate during many MLB games. twins-game

An American-made product + the “great American pastime” = a home run indeed! Of course because Cambria® is durable, maintenance free, and 100% nonporous it has many commercial applications as well. The same color quartz you may select for your bathroom vanity may be installed in a Harley showroom, a dental office, or perhaps the clubhouse of a sporting team facility.twins-v-tigers

Unfortunately the Twins lost to the Tigers 3 – 6 but we still had such a great time. On a positive note, we were able to stay after the game and watch fireworks! A pretty fantastic Friday evening if you ask us! Cambria® is everywhere. Of course the Design Center at Target Field was no exception. Read about our trip to Minnesota to visit the Cambria Quartz facilities and Design Center at Target Field. | VillageHomeStores.com

So why in the world did we also tour a dairy farm?!

Believe it or not, Cambria® began there! In 1936 Stan Davis began an apprenticeship at a butter creamery. By 1943 Stan purchased a creamery and until the year 2000 the Davis family was focused solely on the Dairy business. In 2000 family entered the quartz business after being presented with the opportunity to buy quartz processing equipment. With the success an innovation they put into their dairies, Cambria® Quartz has now evolved into becoming the brand we know and love today. new-sweden-dairy

Touring the Dairy farm and seeing the entire cycle of the process really reflected some of the parts we saw when touring the quartz facilities. Happy and enthusiastic employees and  an innovative process. Read more about this journey from this dairy farm to where Cambria® is now here on their website. Cambria® is passionate about getting involved in the community and in addition to their own Camp Cambria program and Team Cambria youth sports teams, they are also involved in the Veterans Fund and Big Brothers Big Sisters to name a few others. camp-cambria

Learn more about these programs here on their website. Cambria® is also passionate about acquiring materials in a sustainable way and putting sustainable processes in place during manufacturing and fabrication. For example, 100% of the water used in manufacturing is recycled back into the process. They also provide wonderful tools to our designers AND customers.

Coal Valley, IL- A Master Bathroom Takes “Shape”

In our last feature post we shared a tour of a stylish and sophisticated kitchen remodel. That same home in Coal Valley, IL also includes a remodeled Master Suite area just as stunning! A sliding barn door in the Master Bath opens to reveal a walk-in closet, makeup vanity room, and a beautiful bathroom space.

Just like the kitchen, this bathroom began in a beige setting with a medium Oak vanity. A wall-to-wall installation of vanity and top included a cultured marble vanity top with two integrated bowls.
before-remodel

The new vanity area now includes an inset White painted vanity from our Dura Supreme line. The “Highland” doorstyle is inset into the vanity face frame for a classic and stylish look. White wall paneling has been installed throughout the new bathroom and is divided up to create shapely pattern.
Remodeled Quad Cities bathroom with inset cabinetry by Dura Supreme. | VillageHomeStores.comShapes and shadows are truly the centerpiece to the details in this Master Bath. From the inset door edges, to the unique wall sconces, everything makes a statement. We love that the accents of gold from the other areas of the home have made it into this Master Suite.
Remodeled Quad Cities bathroom with painted white cabinets and black and gold accents. |VillageHomeStores.com

The wall sconces are mounted directly through the wall-to-wall mirror. This helps keep the bathroom space seem more open and airy by having the maximum amount of mirror available to bounce and reflect light around.

The Honey Gold finish and white fabric shade are right in place with the rest of the materials selected. The squared off corners of the gold frame reflect and create an almost greek key design.

Beneath the mirror and sconces sits a gorgeous new vanity top. Instead of a double bowl vanity, a single offset layout has been installed. This allows for more countertop space and allows the pattern of Cambria® Quartz “Brittanicca” to take center stage. A clean and stylish blend of whites and grays, this quartz has a natural marble look with the maintenance-free perks Cambria® offers. The vanity top has a “Large Ogee Edge” applied.

With a vanity area that stunning how could a shower still grab your attention? Well… we removed the shower curtain to take a few photos so you can get the full wow-factor!

We were correct about that wow-factor weren’t we? Using a dark gray grout here helps to enhance the geometric pattern of the tile installation. This tile by Florida Tile is appropriately named “Hex” is a glossy white hexagon pattern.

Proof that you do not  need a mosaic of colors to make a bold statement with tile, this shower is amazing! A mix of two shapes of the same colored tile installed in a modern look. We love the stacked install on these long, horizontal tiles.
Remodeled Quad Cities bathroom with custom tiled shower including modern shapes and a dark gray grout. | VillageHomeStores.com

One the wall opposite the shower head is a custom tiled niche area. Inside of that niche the same “Hex” tile has been used and glass shelves allow light to pass through. Including a custom shelf or niche is always helpful when planning a tiled shower.

Many times custom tiled showers include a tiled base for the floor. This customer wanted to avoid grout lines to be cleans on the floor and instead chose a stylish shower base custom made for her by the Onyx Collection. This base is poured in Kansas and available in many colors and can be customized to even the strangest of shapes. A textured pattern is included in the base for added traction. The color selected for this bathroom is named “Constellation” and it is a great compliment to the dark gray grout.

Heartland Builders- Spring Parade of Homes 2017

This Spring we have the great pleasure to have our designs and products included in a number of homes in the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Association Spring Parade of Homes. We share a lot of remodel stories here on the blog but we also put our designs and product into new construction homes. We wanted to share some tours of these homes to give you a look at what “New Construction” looks like in the Quad Cities region. This home built by Heartland Builders is in Bettendorf, Iowa. Heartland worked with us and purchased all cabinetry, counters, appliances, and lighting for this home from our store. Let’s begin a tour with the stunning kitchen.
White painted kitchen cabinetry by Koch paired with Cambria Bellingham quartz tops in a Bettendorf kitchen. Design by Village Home Stores for Heartland Builders. | VillageHomeStores.com

A clean and classic look! White painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Ridgegate” doorstyle is paired with elongated subway tile, quartz countertops, and a KitchenAid® appliance package. A U-shaped layout with a centered island creates an open and functional space for multiple users and can accommodate many guests within the great room. The focal wall in the design is the back wall that is home to a 48″ chimney-style hood and a 48″ wide, dual fuel 6-burner range with griddle by KitchenAid® .

This commercial-style range offers features that any home chef can love along with easy-to-use basics. Convection features may sound intimidating to navigate but this model includes EasyConvect™ Conversion to help you adjust times and temperatures. 6-burners on the cooktop plus a chrome griddle that is easy to clean. Oven capacity is one of the best parts of including a commercial style range in your design.

The combined left and right ovens add up to 6.3 cu. ft. of space! With convection features you can use all of those racks at once if needed and still get consistent results! One “leg” of the U-shape includes a center glass-door cabinet and a long countertop space. This gives a built-in hutch look, and offers a great location to be used as a sideboard to serve food from or set up a beverage station.

The other “leg” of the kitchen is where the tall built-in section of appliances are. A tall, 24″ deep cabinet offers lots of storage and a center section is fit with a convection microwave oven. A stainless steel trim kit frames in this microwave for a built-in look. KitchenAid®’s built-in 42″ wide French Door refrigerator.

The built-in unit installs back with the cabinetry face frame surrounding it. This offers a much more customized a sleek look compared to a standard-depth model that would project into the space by a handful of added inches.

A center kitchen island includes lots of added storage and a pull-out wastebasket cabinets. Having your wastebaskets centrally-located and right on a corner make it so much easy for guests to find them or get direction to them. A dishwasher is also found in the island alongside a Stainless Steel farmhouse sink.

Quartz countertops in Cambria’s “Bellingham” design are a stunning selection. The blend of neutral colors and gray veining add to the classic look of this kitchen. Once installed, Cambria is maintenance free and a wonderful choice for this entire kitchen. A single handle kitchen faucet has been installed and a garbage disposal button is located right above the sink in the countertop.

The same “Ridgegate” door from the kitchen has been painted in Koch’s “Taupe” paint. An “Ebony” accent glaze helps showcase the edges and details of the doors and drawers. Vanity cabinetry and a tall linen cabinet have been installed for a beautiful look with wall-to-wall mirror above the sink area. Sconces from our Kichler line are mounted directly through the mirror. Quartz counters in the “Mont Clair White” design are a beautiful blend of the cabinetry and tile colors in the bathroom. This entire home was furnished and staged by Calla located in Davenport, IA.

The lower level of this home includes a wet bar area also designed by Village. Koch’s “Vicksburg” door in a Rustic Beech wood and “Mocha” stain give a rich, warm look to the space.

A back sink wall of cabinetry including a side-by-side refrigerator faces a two-level bar counter. “Black Pearl” granite tops in the brushed finish give a leathered look to the bar area. See the full album of photos from this project over on our award-winning Houzz page here.
