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!

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.

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.

Tim Dolan Development- Bettendorf Iowa Kitchen Showcases New Traditional Trends

This Fall in the Quad Cities we again had the pleasure of seeing our designs and products in many of the QCBR Parade of Homes listings. We have so many opportunities to showcase before and after remodel stories here on the blog. Truth is, we love any chance we can get to also remind you that we can help you if your dream kitchen is in a brand new home you are building! Take a look at this gorgeous example of New Traditional style in Bettendorf, IA in a home built by Tim Dolan Development.
Painted white cabinetry and gray quartz counters. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Tim Dolan Development. | VillageHomeStores.com

A classic selection of a white painted flat-panel doorstyle is paired with many other on-trend choices for the finished space. The cabinetry is from our Koch Classic line in the “Bristol” door. This door is a clean look with a shaker edge applied and smooth, slab-style drawer fronts.

This is a “Full Overlay” style cabinet which means that the doors and drawer front span across the cabinet faceframe fully. This gives a more customized look to a row of cabinetry and shows less gaps between cabinets. Another custom detail is the built-in refrigerator that has been fit with panels made specifically to fit this 36″ wide model from KitchenAid®. This bottom-mount freezer model includes a platinum interior, spill-resist glass shelves, LED lighting and a built-in icemaker.
Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Tim Dolan Development. | VillageHomeStores.com

There is plenty of storage within the kitchen and access to a walk-in pantry area centrally located in the layout. As you turn the corner you see the main focal point of the kitchen is the wood hood and large range centered on the back wall. This sloping wood hood has been painted to match the kitchen cabinetry and trimmed out in the same crown and under-cabinet molding as the kitchen perimeter. A Broan® internal blower insert and assembly fit with 900 CFM’s is concealed within it.

The cooking zone of this kitchen design has access to the Sharp® microwave drawer in the kitchen island as well as a 48″ gas range packed with features. This 6-burner range from KitchenAid® includes an easy-to-clean chrome electric griddle surface.

A Dual Fuel gas range means that you get the immediate control of heat in a gas cooktop plus the accuracy and consistency of an electric oven for baking. Cook more at once with two oven areas together totaling 6.3 cu. ft. capacity.
Painted white cabinetry and gray quartz counters. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Tim Dolan Development. | VillageHomeStores.com

Engineered quartz countertops have been installed in a color named “Fossil Grey” with a standard “Eased” edge applied. Quartz provides an durable, nonporous surface perfect for a busy kitchen ready for entertaining. Selecting a subtle grey quartz for the counter is both classic and on-trend right now. This quartz counter leaves the perfect base for adding a jaw-dropping tile backsplash in the kitchen.

A 4″ x 12″ elongated gray tile from American Olean’s Stonepeak line is stunning! Available in both glossy (shown) and matte finishes, this “Auru” series can be used in so many styles of spaces! The “Slate” color here gives a trendy ombre detail but the pattern and surroundings ground it back to a Traditional style.

The ceramic delft blue accessories paired with clean whites and the tiled walls give us  bit of a wanderlust for a trip to the Greek Islands or a farmhouse in the South of France. The kitchen has an almost dreamy atmosphere from the light that hangs above the kitchen island.

4 candelabra lights filter through a metal screen shade and cast a unique shadow on the ceiling and surrounding wall cabinets. This light is from Savoy House, a new line we just added to the showroom. The fixture is named “Structure” and we just love it!

We provided all of the lighting for this new home. Our New Construction Lighting Expert helped select and budget with the builder to create a functional and stylish lighting package. The “Winton” 12-light chandelier from CraftMade Lighting pairs a weather wood look with dark bronze details.

We didn’t just provide a beautiful kitchen design for this new Bettendorf, IA home. We also helped to complete the flooring surfaces, bathrooms, lighting, and even specialty areas like this builtin hutch in the hallway. See the full album of photos including these other spaces here on our award-winning Houzz portfolio.

The entire Great Room includes a Living room area, alcove sun room area, casual dining space, and the kitchen. This has been covered with an engineered hardwood from our Canoe Bay line. 7″ wide planks from the Key West series are a White Oak in the “Lighthouse” finish. The white painted kitchen on the light oak floors are a dreamy pair!

Aspen Homes- Polished Farmhouse Style For Fall Parade of Homes

The Quad Cities Builders and Remodelers Association Fall Parade of Homes is coming up Mid-October and we wanted to give you a tour of one of the homes you can expect to see there. This home is built and designed by Aspen Homes LLC in Bettendorf, Iowa. A polished farmhouse style filled with new finishes and timeless but trendy looks.
White Drift painted kitchen with Gray Stone stained accents. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

The new “White Drift” painted finish from our Koch Classic line has been applied to a Rustic Birch wood in the “Hastings” door. This antiqued look finish makes up the main kitchen and island cabinetry. A custom interior pantry door and “X” endcaps for the island are in a Hickory wood and “stone” stain. Did you know Village Home Stores can order you interior doors perfect for your design? We can!

Two “Covington” lantern pendants from our Capital Lighting line hang above the kitchen island. These same lights would look great in a foyer or many other applications. Your lighting expert at Village will help you select the right fixtures in style and scale for your space. This kitchen blends many metal finishes and it works well in the completed Great Room space.
White Drift painted finish from Koch Cabinetry. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

The “Hastings” cabinet door by Koch is a Full-Overlay style. This means that there is minimal gaps between the cabinet door edges and the faceframe of  the cabinet. It is a great look and when finished off with an undercabinet molding, the look is very polished and complete. Each end of the kitchen island has been fit with custom “X” endcaps.
Painted cabinets paired with cerused hickory finish pantry door and island details. | VillageHomeStores.com

These endcaps where completely custom made by our Amish line to match the Hickory “Stone” stain repeated in the pantry door. The look of this finish allows the woodgrain to glow through. The balance of the pantry door and island endcaps is the perfect subtle accent amount.

The gray stain is complimentary to the accent highlights in the main cabinetry finish. By selecting a gray stain, that allows a customer to really go many directions for a wood flooring selection. This medium-toned wood floor is a wonderful choice.

Of course no farmhouse styled space can be complete without an apron farmsink! The kitchen island includes a narrow cabinet, the dishwasher, sink base, and pullout trash cabinet. We love the old world style of this kitchen faucet and the polished chrome finish brightens up the room.

Engineered quartz with a nod to a true marble look can be a wonderful solution for a kitchen countertop investment. This kitchen uses our Q Quartz line in the “Calacatta Classique” color. The subtle gray veining is classic and looks right at home here. Once installed, quartz is  extremely durable, stain resistant, and maintenance free.

The back of the island has been treated with a beaded wood panel. The beadboard look allows the “White Drift” finish highlights to have areas to hang up and show the beaded detail. Staggered heights and depths of cabinetry on the perimeter adds interest to the kitchen design. This wall includes the refrigerator and a microwave drawer.

The wall on the other side of the pantry is home to the gas range and a chimney style Stainless Steel hood both from our Whirlpool® line. Large stacks of drawers flank the range for plenty of pots and pans storage.

This 5-burner gas range from Whirlpool® includes a slide-in style that keeps the area behind it clean and clear for tiled details to shine. All of the controls are found on the front of the unit. New EZ-2-Lift™ Hinged Grates on the cooktop. An industry first from Whirlpool®, these cast-iron grate hinge open for easy clean up without removing them completely.

The oven in this unit also includes True Convection features. A third heating unit in the back of the oven uses a fan to evenly distribute heat over under and all around the 5.8 cu. ft. cavity. This feature also means 20% faster preheatinglocal-whirlpool-dealer-quad-cities

Stylish selections that can perform well and clean up fast. That’s a dream kitchen! The look is beautiful and the features and materials are built to last even for an active family. Plenty of storage in this beautiful kitchen in Bettendorf. Sophisticated rustic details keep this farmhouse style space feeling open, bright, clean, and stunning.

Bob Walter Homes- Stunning New Home in Rural Iowa

This week’s featured project is a brand new home built by Bob Walter Homes in rural Iowa. Bob Walter, known for a tradition of excellence, has truly built a gorgeous home! It was a huge pleasure to work with him and these clients to design and provide the cabinetry and lighting for these spaces.  We hope you enjoy taking a look around this stunning new home.

A non-beaded inset cabinet with 5-piece drawer fronts in the “Fairfield” door style lines the perimeter of the kitchen in a Maple wood custom painted with a Sherwin Williams color named “Balanced Beige”. Dovetailed drawers throughout with undermounted full-extension solt-close drawer guides. The inset doors have concealed inset hinges with soft-close feature.

The kitchen island is constructed of a doorstyle named “American” also inset into the faceframe. A Maple wood has been stained in a medium gray “Tarragon” finish. We love the pairing of the cabinet finishes with the varied wood tones in the floors.

The kitchen is from our Custom Amish-made line of cabinetry Das Holz Haus. Located out in the beautiful plains of Illinois, this custom cabinet line is our finest available. From our designs DHH is able to create a superior product with attention every single detail. We take great pride in providing this line to our customers. Knowing they are investing in the very best available and their cabinetry is constructed as an entire project, not piece by piece. While our clients may be investing in this line for construction, what’s outside is not to go unnoticed.

With DHH feeling is believing. What we mean by this is the finish of this product is something that you truly must experience in our showroom. We believe the finish of the product DHH provides for our customers is unmatched by anyone else in our region. That is why we have selected them to be a part of our product lineup at Village Home Stores. Working with a completely custom line makes spaces like this Laundry Room far easier to achieve:

The same “Fairfield” doorstyle from the kitchen is repeated in the Laundry Room but this time a paint named “Knitting Needles” is applied. This space is ready to not just act as a laundry room but so much more. An incredible amount of storage throughout including a bench area with storage drawers below.

We would guess you aren’t looking at the storage drawers below now though…. how about those custom barn doors!?! If including a barn door in your space is on your wish list then don’t hesitate to discuss it with your designer at Village Home Stores. We can make your dream space a reality! We didn’t just provide expert design and custom cabinetry for this home we also provided the lighting.

Including open concept layouts into new homes has made a big impact on the importance of creating a cohesive style to your home. Our new home lighting specialist works closely with you and your budget to help determine your own personal style and tastes. We carefully consider location, scale and how well fixtures near each other can compliment the overall look. The images above represent what fixtures were selected for the lighting visible throughout the Great Room space. (left) The Foyer light by DVI Lighting is in Oil Rubbed Bronze and the Dining Room lighting (center) is a series from our Kichler line that includes rustic wood details. A 15-light chandelier (right) hangs in the center of the Great Room by Feiss.

In the lower level of the home we provided lighting and custom cabinetry. How amazing does this farmhouse style billiard fixture look above the table!?! This 3-light fixture from our ELK line includes a centered pulley to raise and lower the unit if needed.

Just beyond the billiard table is a stunning new home bar area. The “Athena” door is inset and stain in the same Maple “Tarragon” finish from the upstairs kitchen island. With closed storage and plenty of open shelves this home bar is gorgeous!

This space would make even a stylish NYC bar owner jealous. The layout, the details, and the lighting all make the space so polished. Pendant lighting from our ELK line and wall sconces by Feiss complete the look. We are certainly ready to pull up a barstool.

But if sitting at the bar isn’t your thing perhaps visiting this Wine Cellar area is? The “Leland” 3-light metal drum pendant by Uttermost is a great centerpiece to the space.

Of course all of the bedrooms need to have a stylish lighting plan in place as well. Our favorite is the Master Bedroom which includes the “Aveline” mini chandelier by Feiss. Elements Home Furnishings and Interior Design did an incredible job stylish this home. We are in awe of this completed Master Suite.

Two wall sconces flank a built-in bench area in the Master Bedroom. The 1-light sconces are from the same series of lighting named “Aveline” by Feiss. In fact a third light from that series is repeated above the tub in the Master Bath. Wall sconces by DVI Lighting flank the framed mirrors.

The Master Bathroom vanity area is designed using DHH’s “Villa” door in a Cherry wood. The rich, warm stain is named “Amber” and includes some distressing for added detail. There were a number of other bathrooms in this home but we did want to share some of them to give you an idea of the variety of styles we can and do see in new homes today.

Gone are the days of ordering one door and finish for an entire home of cabinetry. Instead, we are excited that every space in a home is now treated as it’s own concept. The main Guest Bathroom cabinetry (above) is the same doorstyle as the kitchen. Knotty Alder wood has been stained in an “Anise” stain. A new detail to note is look closely at the corners of the cabinet doors. These doors are still inset in the faceframe but raised pegs have been added for an extra detail.

That same Knotty Alder wood is repeated in the main floor hall bathroom. This time the alder is stained in a color called “Sand Keepsake” with a heavy distressing applied. Open shelves give a more furniture look to the vanities and the copper bowls on top are beautiful.

The lighting you select for your home becomes the “jewelry” of the entire finished look. Our lighting experts will help guide you and keep you on track for what is needed and what will work best for the space and your project’s budget. This home also includes a relaxing Outdoor Living Room space we provided lighting and fans for. These lanterns are from our Minka-Lavery line.

Aspen Homes- Baths, Laundry and Lighting Complete The Home

Village Home Stores isn’t just beautiful kitchen designs. We also have products and services for the rest of the rooms throughout your home. Today let’s take a tour of some of the other areas of this Apsen Homes LLC parade home beginning in the Master Bathroom.
Master Bathroom cabinetry in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

Far atop the wishlists of most of our clients… storage! This is the case in a kitchen and especially in a bathroom. With medicine cabinets becoming a thing of the past, framed mirrors offer style but no storage. The vanity area in a bathroom is where a designer must get creative to add as much storage as possible without overcrowding the area.
Master Bathroom cabinetry in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

Dividing the space between the two vanity sinks is a tall wall cabinet with a single drawer. These 12″ deep cabinets can accommodate a LOT of items within. Plenty of counter space is still surrounding the area and now storage is right within reach without even bending down to reach it!
Master Bathroom cabinetry in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

The vanity includes two sink base cabinets and a large stack of drawers at the center. Cabinetry in the Master Bath is from our Koch Classic line in the “Legacy” door and Cherry wood stained the same “Stone” stain as the kitchen.  A Black accent glaze has been applied to highlight the details of the doors and drawerfronts.  The double-bowl vanity top is an Engineered Quartz.

Klondike’s “Calcutta Gold” quartz spreads the full width of the vanity with a backsplash and end splashes applied. Rectangle vanity sinks have been undermounted to the quartz and 8″ cc faucets in a bright polished chrome complete the look.  Two of the other bathrooms include a cultured marble vanity top. Cultured marble is a term for a molded top that includes an integrated vanity sink when it is made.

These tops are made in the U.S.A. from our Onyx Collection line. Standard sizes or custom, Onyx can make a top for your project. The look of cultured marble has changed dramatically over the years. What used to be a glossy, marbled look is now sleek and modern. Faux granites have replaced marbles and solid, matte finish tops like these are a classic choice.

The “Matte White” finish from the Onyx Collection with wave bowls look classic and are a fantastic value for the price. The Matte finish from Onyx is also repairable if scratched!

A new Whirlpool® front-load washer and dryer include convienent features for a busy family like the 12 hour FanFresh® option. This option keeps items fresh in the washer for up to 12 hours after the wash cycle has ended. A built-in fan begins after the wash cycle is over, tumbling clothes so you can move them over to the dryer whenever you are ready.Minka fan in a Bettendorf, IA great room.

The ceiling treatment in this room is breathtaking. A large fan from our Minka Aire line is a rich contrast to the white on white grid pattern of the ceiling. Our best selling fan for new homes is our “Mojo” fan from the same brand. Here it is in an adorably staged bedroom in this parade home.Minka Mojo fan in a Bettendorf, IA home.

The foyer light that was selected for this home also has a lantern shape and it is a knockout! Capital light fixture in a Bettendorf, IL home.

This 6-light fixture from Capital Lighting has style and sophistication. An oval within a rectangle  box and a 6-light candelabra in the center. The ovals seem to be “fastened” with a gold band to the rectangles. We also love the seeded glass Kichler light fixture selected for the home office. Seeded glass detail of Kichler fixture in a Bettendorf, IA home.

Aspen Homes- Transitional Style on Parade in Bettendorf, IA

“Build your dream home with your now budget” that’s the phrase that greets you on the new Aspen Homes LLC Website. With the Aspen team and your new home team here at Village Home Stores that is absolutely possible! Take a look around this Bettendorf, IA kitchen that was part of the QCBR Spring Parade of Homes this year. Transitional style kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.comPainted white cabinets on the perimeter and a stained gray kitchen island to anchor the space. This L-shaped kitchen design sits in a great room layout that or open, bright and stylish.

The new look of the Whirlpool® slide-in ranges is amazing! Now referred to as “front-control” ranges, these gas and electric units have no back control panel raising up to cover the backsplash area. This new design allows the full-access of sight for a backsplash and can be installed in any traditional 30″ wide range opening. The hood wall absolutely becomes the focal point of the kitchen design. Symmetrical in layout and complimented with the island and lighting placement just in front of it. The pendants selected for this kitchen offer style and function but also don’t block the view of that focal wall.

Two lantern-style lights from our Kichler line hang above the kitchen island. Our New Construction lighting expert works closely with you, the Aspen team, and your kitchen designer here at Village Home Stores to determine the best style, scale, and placement for your kitchen island lighting.

The lantern shape is a traditional choice for a foyer light in a home. Using it here helps bridge the gap between Transitional and New-Traditional. We love the look! A wall of cabinetry near the home office includes the Whirlpool® counter-depth french door Refrigerator and a Sharp® microwave drawer. The counter-depth feature on this refrigerator helps to keep the traffic from the back entry of the home clear and open in the design.

A white farmsink is a perfect contrast to stand out in the single-level kitchen island. Drawer storage, a dishwasher, and a pull-out wastebasket are all included in the island design. A black accent glaze has been added to the Cherry “Stone” stain to help highlight the door details on the island.
Gray stained kitchen island. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

The sides and back of the island has been treated with a smooth panel in the same Cherry “Stone” stain. Trim has been added to divide up the space into three sections. We have seen a larger trend of single-level islands like these to include barstools that are backless. While this style may not be comfortable for all, the look is more open and less crowded.

Open Concepts in the way of a Great Room design are truly the desired layout for new homes in the Quad Cities area. For busy families, young professionals who like to entertain, or retirees looking to downsize, everyone is wanting a more open living space. With beautiful views of the Midwest countryside out these windows, who wouldn’t want to see that from every room possible.

Great Rooms can be very versatile spaces. As you can see, there is plenty of space for seating in the great room. 4 barstools fit comfortably at the island and a dining table is nearby for a more formal option. Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining area. A 6-light fixture named “Pearson” from our Capital line has a sleek modern profile with a nod to a traditional style fixture. Pearson light by Capital Lighting in a dining area.

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.

Design by Village Home Stores for Heartland Builders. | VillageHomeStores.comAbove this kitchen island hang two pendants by ELK lighting. These clear glass lights help keep the space seem airy and open. Our lighting experts will work with you and your kitchen designer to select the perfect look, size, and scale of lighting to hang above your kitchen island.

There are so many gorgeous lights selected throughout this home. Our new construction lighting expert will sit down with you and your contractor to help determine what lighting is needed and how you can make the most of your lighting budget. We love the light fixture (show below) that hangs in the formal Dining Room of this home. This 8-light pendant is by Kichler.

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.

Wood Builder Ltd.- Modern Farmhouse Style in Bettendorf, IA

Village Home Stores is known for beautiful remodels but did you know that we also work with many area builders to provide expert design and material selection for their homes?  This stunning kitchen in a Wood Builder Ltd. home is a fantastic example.  Modern Farmhouse style in the new Spencer Hollow in Bettendorf, IA. Let’s take a look around this beautiful new space.
Light gray painted kitchen with gray stained island. Kitchen by Village Home Stores for Wood Builder Ltd. | VillageHomeStores.com

Painted cabinets from our Koch Express line are installed throughout the perimeter of the kitchen. The Windsor doorstyle in a birch wood has been painted with a soft, light-gray color named “Oyster” by Koch.  The cabinetry includes soft-close drawers and classic, slab drawer fronts. A suite of Stainless Steel appliances from our Whirlpool® line complete the look with style and function. This 30″ wide front-control gas range is packed with great features including the innovative new Frozen Bake™ feature by Whirlpool®.
Whirlpool slide in range and chimney style hood. | VillageHomeStores.com

What does Frozen Bake™ mean? It means a meal is as simple as loading in select frozen items like pizza or a lasagna and beginning the baking process without preheating. Skip preheating alltogether and let this range modify cook times and temperatures for you. As a compliment to the soft painted “Oyster” finish on the perimeter, a stain has been applied to the kitchen island. The Lexington doorstyle from our Koch Classic line has been installed in a birch wood with the “Stone” stain applied.

This medium gray tone allows the natural wood grain of the cabinets come through but doesn’t conflict with the other wood tones in the space. The wood flooring and furnishing in the great room all pair well with the gray stain. The best ways to “dress up” an island design without adding legs or decorative details is to just be certain that the exposed ends look great. A smooth, flat panel or finished end look alright on an island but adding elements like applied doors (shown above) help to customize and elevate the design. Furniture baseboard completes the look.

The counters in this kitchen are from our Klondike quartz line. The neutral faux-marble look is named “Calacatta Gold” in the standard “Eased” edge.  Many times when we have a two-toned cabinet layout, the island is a second color of counter material. Here using the same quartz throughout is a clean and classic look. The island top overhangs on two sides to offer seating for three guests.
Kitchen island with Sharp microwave drawer. Kitchen by Village Home Stores for Wood Builder Ltd. | VillageHomeStores.com

A centrally-located kitchen island can be a wonderful location for a microwave drawer. Access to the microwave is available to any user without being in the way of any other prep or cooking. In this kitchen layout a user can be at the main cooktop/range area and someone else can still easily access the microwave or refrigerator. This microwave drawer model from our Sharp® line measures 24″ wide and has been installed in a cabinet including a storage drawer below. You can see in the background of the above image, that a sliding barn door is located in the kitchen. This door installed by Wood Builder Ltd. opens to access a pantry area. There is also a secondary pantry located in the kitchen design. It is a tall cabinet to the left of the refrigerator.
Kitchen with side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator. Kitchen by Village Home Stores for Wood Builder Ltd. | VillageHomeStores.com
Next to the tall pantry is a 21 cu. ft. side-by-side refrigerator by Whirlpool®.  This counter-depth model is installed back flush with the cabinets and gives a more customized look without much upcharge. It is important to mention also that 21 cu. ft. of storage is a wonderful number for a counter depth model. Freezer storage in a side-by-side refrigerator can already be a bit limited but this counter-depth model includes In-Door-Ice® Storage. This means that the icemaker and bin have been moved to the door to make more usable shelf space available.

Heartland Builders- A New Home With Contemporary Details

Village Home Stores has the great privilege to design so many incredible kitchens in a year. Lifestyle magazines, the internet, and apps like Pinterest and Houzz have revolutionized how our customers are able to narrow down their own personal styles. Because these platforms can showcase that every project can be different from the next, our own clients are beginning to embrace a very important revelation in 2017: you don’t have to do whatever your neighbor is doing. It is your home, make it reflect you! Even in the category of New Construction homes we still can say that every single home is different from the next. Take for example, this new Colona, IL home completed by Heartland Builders:
Contemporary style kitchen in a home by Heartland Builders including black painted Koch cabinets and quartz counters. | VillageHomeStores.com

We have shared countless white painted kitchens here on the blog but this space is a refreshing contrast. Black painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been installed in the full-overlay “Savannah” door. An L-shaped layout is met in the corner with a pantry and a bat-wing shaped kitchen island angles in towards the kitchen. Seating for 4 surrounds the kitchen island.
Contemporary style kitchen in a home by Heartland Builders including Stainless Maytag Appliances. | VillageHomeStores.com

The kitchen sink is in the very center of the island and a bar-height top blocks view into the sink from the Living Room area. Quartz tops in the “Fossil Grey” color are installed in a standard Eased edge profile. This new Maytag® french door refrigerator includes the easy-to-clean, Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel finish. The refrigerator caps the end of the kitchen area and in a small niche for the Great Room a bar area has been installed.
Bar area in kitchen including Danby glass-front beverage cooler. | VillageHomeStores.com

This space is stylish and convenient when entertaining. A glass-front beverage cooler from our Danby® line frees up space in the main refrigerator and allows hosts and guest easy access to beverages. Our Diode LED undercabinet lighting perfectly illuminates the American Olean “Appeal” glass mosaic backsplash.  This bar area has been tiled completely in the “Transcendent” mosaic. As mentioned before, the appliance package in this new home is by Maytag®.  Maytag is dependable and has the warranty to back that statement up! Each of the new Maytag® appliances in this space comes with a 10 year limited parts warranty on the main components of the unit. Stop by or call our expert appliance team at (309) 944-1344 to learn more about this warranty exclusive to Maytag®.
Contemporary style kitchen in a home by Heartland Builders including Stainless Maytag Appliances. | VillageHomeStores.com

The appliances include the french door refrigerator, top-control dishwasher, microwave hood, and convection gas range. Each with their own 10 year limited parts warranty and in the Fingerprint Resistant Stainless finish. We love the look of the commercial-style hardware on the handles and knobs in this sleek space.

This kitchen has been installed within a great room that includes a living room area and dining space. The same Luxury Vinyl Tile has been installed throughout the foyer, great room, kitchen, pantry, dinette, hall, mud room, and laundry. This LVT is the “Meridain” series from our Adura click-together line in the “Steel” color. The perfect neutral sleek and stylish platform for this Contemporary styled space.

The lighting selections for this home are fantastic and each can stand alone as a very unique art piece! Four elongated LED pendants hang above the kitchen island. These pendants from our Kuzco line are in the Satin Nickel finish. Sometimes a big design impact can be made with a low-profile item. These long, narrow fixtures are a great example. They almost create columns to the island but are easy to see past and around in the open space.
Modern and Contemporary lighting by Village Home Stores in a Heartland Builders kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

A 4-light chandelier hangs in the dinette area. This light is named “Coddington” and is from our Feiss line. Talk about sculptural! We are reminded of the balance and shapes of an Alexander Calder mobile when seeing this light.

In the great room space a large 60″ ceiling fan is stunning! This fan is named “Proxima” and is from our Quorum line. The Satin Nickel finish is a perfect choice in this completed space. When turned on, it provides a lot of air flow and when the fan is turned off, it has an almost sculptural look.

That corner pantry may look large enough, but open the doors and you will find that this is just a pantry front. This cabinet walk-through pantry front leads to a large walk-in pantry area. There is plenty of style AND storage in this space. New homes like this tend to have an “Open Concept” to the spaces but you need to plan for including plenty of storage options concealed from that “open” area. This walk-in pantry if perfect for food storage but also can be great for  other bulk household items.
