Rock Island Remodel: Bigger & Brighter

A Full Kitchen Remodel Managed from Start to Finish By Village Home Stores.

before_photoThe “before” story of this remodel looks like many kitchens throughout the Quad Cities. White laminated thermofoil cabinetry was extremely popular years ago and commonly paired with black, gray, and white color schemes. In its time this was a pretty incredible look in kitchen design. Also common in this era was the look of soffits above the cabinetry. This kitchen in Rock Island is ready for an update…

Kitchen_Contractor_Rock_Island…and talk about a transformation! This bigger and brighter new kitchen in Rock Island, IL is gorgeous and seems to have almost doubled in size! See this full video tour on this episode of the Village Home Show. Just press play below.

This over-the-counter style is a wonderful option when a built-in look is desired.

remodeling_quad_citiesThe entire kitchen is finished in the painted “Pearl” color but the new eat-in area now within the front room is paneled in  a”Mocha” stain. There is a certain richness and sophistication with this contrast and the bar stools are the perfect choice to balance the light and dark colors together.

kitchen_design_rock_islandYou can see in this new design how adding the new hutch area creates an extension of the new kitchen on that back wall and helps the entire kitchen footprint seem much larger. These homeowners in Rock Island, IL chose to work with Village Home Stores because they wanted to open up the existing space and create one large finished space. They also were wanting someone that could schedule and manage the entire process for them. This type of project is exactly why we offer our Project Management services to our customers.

remodel_timelineRemodeling a kitchen or bathroom is not something that you do every year. In many cases it is something you may only do once in a lifetime. At Village Home Stores this is what we do every day. We can help you as little or as much as you would like. If you just need a design and materials for your project we are here for you and if you want someone to take care of it all from start to finish we are here as well. See the entire album of the before, during and after photos over on our Facebook page here.

kitchen remodel before and afterIn the case of this Rock Island remodel there were multiple crews needed to achieve the end result these homeowners were wanting. We managed everything from start to finish. This includes coordinating a “meeting of the minds” so to speak at your home early in the estimating process. Our project manager can then get accurate estimates and schedule a timeline for your project based on a realistic and efficient use of everyone’s time.

kitchen_design_in_Quad_CitiesThe new kitchen sink and countertop pairs perfectly with the warm Travertine tile backsplash. Every permanent element to this new kitchen design remains neutral but the entire new overall space is playful and exciting. We love the bold artwork that faces the new front room. Plus the new dining room light fixture is a statement in itself. 

lighting_store_quad_citiesThis sparkling “Lucia” fixture from Feiss is stunning in person. It looks gorgeous when off and breathtaking when lit. Our lighting team can help you create the perfect lighting plan for your entire space. We have thousands of fixtures to select from and they will help you find just the right one. You can notice when you look beyond this light that the old soffits were also removed when the wall was opened up.

Contractor_Rock_IslandNow the new cabinetry extends all the way to the ceiling. If you didn’t guess from the artwork, the dogbowls above may be a dead giveaway that a dog lives here. Those big dogbowls suggest that “Tucker” has a pretty big appetite. But who wants to take up so much space in that beautiful new pantry cabinet for a bog bin of dog food? Take a look at what feature was worked into the kitchen design instead…

pet_food_storageThis pull-out cabinet includes a covered insert for pet food storage. Now dog food can be stored within reach but out of sight. When we made a little video clip of this cabinet in action “Tucker” was very interested in his food cabinet opening up. Watch it here and keep a close eye on his ears perking up.

range and hoodWith the new cabinetry extending all the way to the ceiling there was not an opportunity to stagger the heights of the decorative wood hood in the new design. Instead a slight change in depth and an arched panel shelf above the cooktop create interest and allow space within it for a Broan hood insert. There was also an area down the hallway that was included in this new look.

hall_closetThis built-in linen cabinet was removed and replaced with matching cabinetry to the kitchen within sight of the hallway. We love how this project turned out and it was amazing how much of a difference it made right away to remove that section of wall and open up the new kitchen into the front room. This big bright room is now the place to be at it is so easy to picture it full of guests having a wonderful time.
