Not every remodel project we take on involves a full dumpster of old cabinets and drywall. Many of the kitchen transformations that happen week to week from our store involve just a few steps or stages and none of them include removing a wall of tearing out soffits. Not every project or budget allows for such an involved process. Truth be told, not every customer wants to go through the “full” remodel process. This remodeled kitchen in Moline is a perfect example.
The layout of the existing kitchen worked well for this family but they were in need of an updated look without a huge mess. Many of our blog readers can relate to an existing Oak kitchen that just looks tired and ready for a change. Let us walk you through what we did to help this Moline couple get the finished look you see above. First a brand new kitchen island was installed from our Dura Supreme line.
The cabinets are built from a Knotty Alder wood and finished in a “Peppercorn” stain. Many times customers shopping for an island think there are set standard sizes and styles of island cabinets. That is not the case. We can design a kitchen island to be perfect for your exact space and needs.
This island consists of just three base cabinets, paneling, and trim. Your designer from Village Home Stores can help you decide what cabinets would be perfect for your island. In this case, two wide stacks of drawers on the interior were included for a lot of added storage. Outlets were also included on each end of the island to make prep and entertaining easier.
New countertops are the second element that went into this kitchen remodel. Cambria Quartz now covers the entire perimeter of the kitchen as well as the new island all in the “Torquay” design. A standard “Eased” edge profile was used. Anytime you are investing in replacement countertops it is an ideal time to replace your kitchen sink and faucet as well. How beautiful is this new sink?
We have installed a number of this new finish of sink by Blanco called “Truffle”. The color is a perfect neutral taupe and pairs well with Stainless, Pewter, and Oil-Rubbed Bronze faucet finishes. The layout of this undermount sink is a 60/40 divided space.
There is no Cambria backsplash installed so that the full 18″ from counter to cabinet can be filled with a beautiful new backsplash. A warm and bright “Calacatta Gold” 1″ x 2″ backsplash tile surrounds the kitchen. and even extends up around the window trim and end wall.
This remodeled Moline kitchen is another classic example of how our Diode under-cabinet lighting system can make a gigantic impact on your new space. These photographs were taken during the day but you can still see just how much of a showcase it puts the new backsplash on. Just take a look at our last feature kitchen to see another example of this incredible lighting system.
While this may look like a brand new kitchen the original Oak perimeter cabinetry was painted to give it a fresh new look. We also installed a brand new lazy susan in the existing corner cabinet of the kitchen. By painting the cabinets, replacing the counters, and installed a new island and backsplash this kitchen looks completely new!
