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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Aspen Homes- Tastefully On Trend Meets Timeless

Many times customers are hesitant to embrace something labeled as a “trend” because they fear the look will be dated so quickly. The truth is in our industry…trends aren’t just a flash in the pan. Ever. For design choices like Gray Stains or Black Accents, these “trends” are long-term. Once you begin to see certain trends appear on magazine covers and in spaces on your favorite TV shows, the industry has committed to the concept. This latest project we completed with Aspen Homes LLC is so gorgeous we barely know where to begin the tour!  As we show you around the space we will pay attention to key trends at work in the kitchen:

Black Details And Accents In The Kitchen:

We love the black trim detail added to this Bettendorf, IA home. A farmhouse sink sits beneath three windows on one wall of the kitchen design. These three black windows add style and visual rhythm to the space. The two “Wadsworth” pendants that hang above the kitchen island are from our Hudson Valley line. Selecting the perfect lighting for your overall look is so important. The kitchen island pendants in this home are the perfect example of what we mean.

“Both the sconces and the island pendants get a lot of attention. I’m glad I took a risk with those pendants because they seem to tie it all together and ground a space filled with so much white.” -homeowner

That quote from the homeowner says it all! They truly do complete the entire design. The black accent, the shape, the brass, the circle element (see the barn door below), it is all perfection! A pendant like that in a catalog or our showroom may seem like a bold statement but our lighting team works hard with our clients to select fixtures perfect for their space. A statement may seem a bit out of your comfort level at the time but the impact will be great!

Introduce Gold Accents:

Between the windows hang “Margeaux” wall sconces from our Hinkley line. The “Vintage Brass” finish on the sconces is repeated in the kitchen cabinet hardware and accents on the island pendant lights. You do not have to go “all in” on this Gold Accent trend. Just introducing a few locations for it is great! New Traditional style is all about balancing old looks with new materials. In some cases New Traditional blends old finishes with new shapes and styles. Mixing metal finishes can look great when executed correctly and our team is here to help you find the perfect balance.

Soften The Look With Matte Finishes:

A great way to make a space more welcoming and less “cold” is to use softer, more matte finishes. Even a cold, hard material like granite can seem more approachable. In this case, a Granite named “Black Pearl” has been installed as the perimeter countertop material. Instead of a high-polished and reflective finish, the “Brushed” finish is used. The result: and Old World look almost like that of a soapstone countertop. The island countertop is from our Cambria Quartz line in their “Summerhill” design. Summerhill blends all of the surrounding colors together perfectly and offers up a natural stone veining look that adds character to the island.

Want a cabinet style and finish that is truly timeless? If you look at some of your own favorite kitchen spaces saved to your Pinterest or Houzz accounts is the common denominator perhaps a white painted cabinet? A flat-panel doorstyle in a white paint is as timeless of a cabinet commitment you can make. This kitchen has been installed in the “Savannah” door from our Koch Classic line. Chances are if you are drawn to the look of a white painted cabinet, you are also looking at Subway tile. This kitchen takes that classic subway tile and installs it all the way to the ceiling:

“It’s funny how many people love that the subway tile is taken to the ceiling. It was a simple addition that makes it all feel more special.” -homeowner

White painted flat-panel cabinetry and subway tile. We are giving you the definite green light for that winning combination! Again, these are classic and timeless selections you can make for your overall permanent investment. If 15 years from now you wanted to give this kitchen a new look, the entire kitchen may not need to come out to get that “new” update.

Showcase Your Workspace:

If you are going to invest in a great space to prepare meals, why not shine the spotlight on your busiest area? Cooking zones are where all the activity happens so why not make them the focal point of the space? Kitchens are no longer hidden in the back corner of a home. They have become the very center of all activity throughout your day. In this kitchen a unique hood design makes a statement of its own on the range wall. This custom wood hood aligns with the angle of the kitchen ceiling. A custom hood insert and 1200 CFM blower are fit on the interior of the hood. A clean hood design with a contrasting band of wood at the base completes the look. Below that hood is an envy-worthy 48″ wide range:

This KitchenAid® Dual Fuel, commercial-style range has 6 gas burners and a chrome electric griddle. The griddle provides exceptional cooking performance and features an easy-to-clean surface. Why Dual Fuel? This range combines the precise control of a gas cooking surface with an electric oven. In the culinary world even the most demanding of cooks can agree that dual fuel is the “best of both worlds” situation for a range. Immediate control for the cooktop and consistent baking, roasting, and broiling in the oven.

EvenHeat™ True Convection in the ovens provide consistent heating and even cooking on all racks. Convection helps ensure no burnt edges or undercooked centers and with EasyConvect™ Conversion, it is so easy to use these features. This range combines two ovens for a total of 6.3 cu. ft. of capacity. Shop appliances here or visit our store for an award-winning customer experience and a Low Price Guarantee on home appliances!

Warm Gray Stains:

Gray stains aren’t just still “in style”, they are growing and growing in popularity! Each of our cabinet lines have invested in continuing to add gray stains to their finish options. Grays have started to trend toward the warmer look. Warm grays blend well with other wood finishes and paints.

In this kitchen a tall pantry cabinet with drawers is finished in a contrasting gray stain named “Stone”. The same Savannah Doorstyle used in the main kitchen is a Cherry wood on the pantry cabinet. Cherry offers a warm and rich woodgrain for the “Stone” stain. We love the use of a contrasting cabinet finish in an unexpected application. We have come to expect the kitchen island, or perhaps a hood to have a contrast finish. Here the location gives the tall cabinet almost the look of a freestanding furniture piece.

This layout also provides the illusion of two kitchen islands. A peninsula runs parallel to the kitchen island. It is always exciting to work with Aspen Homes on a project because they come to us with so many great ideas and enthusiastic clients. Looking to build a new home or remodel the one your are in?
