A Quad Cities Kitchen Remodeled Start to Finish

One of the best things about being in our industry is that every single project we work on is different from the next. Even when kitchen and bath trends are put into action, the applications are always different because no space is the same. Village Home Stores has the great privilege of placing our designs and products in new and existing homes in the extended Quad Cities Region and we love each project we complete. We normally don’t admit it when we have favorites… but this week’s featured remodel story in Bettendorf, Iowa is one of our favorites fromf the year for sure! Two tone kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with large kitchen island, waterfall Cambria counters, Black Stainless appliances, and a custom walnut wood top table. | villagehomestores.com

This Bettendorf, Iowa customer found Village Home Stores by catching our weekly television show that airs every Sunday at 9am on WQAD. On the Village Home Show we are able to showcase remodel stories from right here in the Quad Cities area. So when this family was ready, they knew who to call. The original oak cabinetry layout really divided the kitchen from the dining and living spaces. There is a beautiful outside pool area just steps away from the kitchen in this home. With the peninsula in place, it was a long voyage to the kitchen sink from the pool.

We were so thrilled with the ideas they came to us with for a more open concept kitchen. When we say that the kitchen is the hub of the home, this household is a great example of that. With access to lofted living room and the backyard pool retreat, this new kitchen design needed to be functional and stylish. We began by removing the original kitchen… but kept one main element in place to help save some cost to the clients.Need a kitchen remodeler that can manage your project from start to finish? Contact the Quad Cities kitchen experts at Village Home Stores.

This kitchen has been given a whole new look but we kept the original tile floors! That’s right! Because the tile flooring was installed before the original kitchen cabinets went in, there was no void left when we tore out the kitchen peninsula. A new knee-wall was installed with power for island outlets. Take one more look at the original oak kitchen with the peninsula + table layout….Contact the Quad Cities kitchen experts at Village Home Stores.

…and now the kitchen absorbs the dining space into one cohesive look. In fact, the kitchen and dining spaces are now joined into one concept by an incredible and versatile island design. The overall space has been brightened up significantly with lighter, airy material selections, added lighting, and the installation of mirror in some cabinetry. Two tone kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with large kitchen island, waterfall Cambria counters, Black Stainless appliances, and a custom walnut wood top table. | villagehomestores.com

A large kitchen island is the centerpiece to the new open concept. On the end near the backyard access, a custom table has been placed at dining height. We designed the dining table to be placed right next to the kitchen island. However, the table can be moved out if needed. A custom wood base was built for this design by our carpentry team and our painters painted it to compliment the kitchen cabinetry and trim.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with custom farmtable base. | villagehomestores.com

A gorgeous wood top from our Craft-Art line was secured on top of the base. With the main kitchen cabinetry all in painted finishes, a woodgrain was a welcomed element. The Black Walnut plank-style wood top adds warmth and an upscale texture to the space. We think its is best complimented with the warm backslash tile glowing with our undercabinet lighting system. 

Can’t find the right table to match your new kitchen from Village? Let us make one for you to ensure that it lines up with the overall design concept! Finding the right size and finish can be tricky. But rest assured, we can build just about anything you can dream up. This rich, smooth Black Walnut top was given a stylish and classic “Ogee” edge profile. The feel and sheen of these wood tops are truly heirloom quality. Learn more about these wood tops here in a previous postRemodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with CraftArt Black Walnut tabletop in Ogee edge. | villagehomestores.com

Even though this wood top is a showstopper, the Cambria Quartz in this kitchen is not to be ignored. Take a peek at this image below showing the remodel while it was still in progress. Notice that a piece of Cambria was installed on the cooktop wall for a dramatic look. Need a kitchen remodeler that can manage your project from start to finish? Contact the Quad Cities kitchen experts at Village Home Stores.

This statement wall creates a dramatic contrast of a marble look on the wall with a graphic black hood as an eye-catching continuation from the dark base cabinets. In fact, the Cambria Britannica Warm Quartz seems to almost cascade down behind the hood, flow up from the floor, over the kitchen island, and pour back down again on the other side.

Of course a glassy, gloss finish in a bright space always adds a great upscale detail. This Cambria design includes warm gray veining and is a classic compliment to the dark appliances and painted base cabinetry. A new approach to a two tone kitchen, dark painted bases with a bright and airy upper cabinet in a separate finish. Many times this trend is installed with open or floating shelves for the upper cabinetry. But in this design, we wanted to provide as much usable storage as possible.

The use of mirrors in some of the wall cabinetry does add a lighter weight to the look of the upper cabinets. The “X” design in the cabinet door is an updated and more Transitional style detail. We love the way mirrors help to brighten up a room (plus conceal the cabinet interior). Two tone kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with mirrored door cabinets and X-design. Kitchen designed and remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Quartz in a marble look is a great choice for a busy kitchen and large island work surface like this. Cambria Quartz in the Brittanicca Warm design offers a classic look of a marble with a maintenance-free advantage. The island countertop has a standard “Eased” edge applied to it to maintain a cleaner installation and look with the waterfalling edge. Two tone kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with Cambria Brittanicca Warm quartz counters installed with a waterfall design on the island.

Curious about waterfall edges? Stop by our showroom in Downtown Geneseo and see our front desk area that showcases this look. Village Home Stores offers many departments all under one roof to make the entire selection process easier on you and your designer. We encourage you to come with any ideas you have collected during your research phase but also take a look around and inside all of our cabinetry displays. We offer so many specialty cabinets and can show them to you. Our Dura Supreme line of cabinetry is loaded with so many great options! This kitchen of includes great sliding shelf storage but also a mixer lift cabinet right in the island.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with Dura Supreme cabinetry in the painted Graphite finish. Kitchen designed and remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

See more of this entire kitchen in detail over on our Best of Houzz-winning Portfolio. See the full album of images here. We also installed a spice pullout, lazy susan, and an auto-open waste basket! Press play below to watch the waste basket cabinet open with just a nudge.

Matte Black is one of our favorite home trends and this kitchen rocks the trend so well! The soft, rich look of Dura Supreme’s painted “Graphite” finish on the base cabinetry pairs so well with KitchenAid’s Black Stainless Steel finish appliances. Black Stainless is not just for super contemporary spaces. This Transitionally-styled space is proof of that. Plus it is fingerprint resistant! Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with KitchenAid Black Stainless appliances. Kitchen designed and remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

KitchenAid was the first in their industry to launch a Black Stainless Steel finish and the look is sophisticated. But a KitchenAid kitchen is at it’s best when in use! A counter-depth French Door refrigerator includes incredible fresh and frozen food storage. A 30″ Combination Wall Oven and Microwave has so many features and a large capacity when needed. Another great appliance detail in this kitchen is the undercounter 15″  Ice Maker. What an absolute dream for anyone who entertains! Of course when you have a pool… people tend to show up.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with KitchenAid Black Stainless icemaker and custom paneled undercounter beverage cooler. | villagehomestores.com

This 15″ automatic ice maker produces ice that is perfect for every occasion.  It opens to reveal a storage bin that can hold up to 25 pounds of ice. Next to the Ice Maker we installed a beverage cooler with a custom panel to match the cabinetry. This kept the beverage area of the new kitchen looking symmetrical. Panel-ready appliances can be a wonderful custom option. We offer them in many refrigerator and  dishwasher options. We kept the original tile floors in the kitchen but a new tile backsplash was installed. 

3″ x 12″ textured tiles in “New Yorker” series and “Taupe” color. We love how they almost have the appearance of being underwater with their texture and reflection. Our stylish adorne series of switches and outlets from legrand looks great on the tile in a contrasting color and matte finish.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with legrand adorne system of outlets and switches. Kitchen designed and remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

The square design of this series looks great and is very versitile with options. Since sart home tech is at the top of every homeowner and homebuyer’s wishlist we should also mention this kitchen lighting system takes voice commands! Using the legrand app and connected to an amazon Alexa, we had a lot of fun testing out this new product. Press play below to watch a Facebook live video we taped at this completed jobsite to see how easy it is to use voice commands with this adorne system.

Smart home tech has reached the kitchen industry in a big way over the last few years and this year even more products are set to launch to make your life easier and more enjoyable. This homeowner was able to connect many of the lighting switches in the home and now can even switch lights off and on when they are away from home using the app.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with legrand connected lighting system. Connect with the legrand app and even enable voice commands for your controls. | villagehomestores.com

We have completed many new spaces using the adorne series from legrand. These outlet covers are a perfect match to the painted Graphite cabinetry in this kitchen. They match so well  that our “hidden” pop-up outlet in the island is totally camouflaged when it isn’t in use. Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with legrand adorne pop-out outlet.

A hands-free waste basket cabinet, voice-controlled lighting, and even a wave-controlled kitchen faucet! There is just so much from this kitchen remodel story it is almost impossible to showcase it all here on the blog. We hope to film an upcoming episode of the Village Home Show to show you more of these great features in action. Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with a stainless farmsink and Dura Supreme cabinetry in the painted Graphite finish. | villagehomestores.com

Moline, IL- Master Bath Remodel Removes Jacuzzi, Adds Storage Bench

We are not just beautiful kitchen remodels. Since the launch of our Full Project Management Program, we have gained quite the reputation for becoming a reliable, time-efficient, and customer-focused choice in the Quad Cities region for full bathroom remodels as well! This Moline, IL Master Bathroom is our featured project this week because it includes many items that top wishlists of all our bath remodel customers. Take a look at this elegant Master Bathroom:Custom tiled shower and a double bowl vanity in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Of course a lot of counter space and two sinks are a priority in any Master Bathroom design. This Moline bath had a generous amount of wall space available for the vanity area. Our designer from Village Home Stores included as much drawer storage as possible from our Dura Supreme line of cabinetry. The Full-Overlay Craftsman door was selected in a rich Cherry wood and “Peppercorn” finish. What does Full-Overlay mean? Take a look at the image below and notice the small gaps between the doors and drawers:Cherry Peppercorn double vanity cabinetry by Dura Supreme in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Traditional overlay would leave gaps about 2-3 times larger that what you see here. In a Full Overlay style (like shown), those gaps are minimal. This Gives your doors and drawers more space to spread across the faceframe of the cabinet openings behind them. Full overlay styles also help to hide the seams of cabinets when you install them in a long row like we have done here. It is hard to tell where each individual cabinet begins and ends. One jaw-dropping material choice in this Master Bath is the Cambra Quartz design selection. “Ellesmere” is a rich and sparkling blend of so many colors and it looks right at home in this Master Suite. Cambria Ellesmere quartz in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

In fact Ellesmere has some of the same colors the original bathroom had. Rich gold metallics and vibrant earthtones. On the subject of the original bathroom design, that brings us back to that customer wishlist. In the past few years we have removed so many large Jacuzzi tubs from Master Bathrooms. Clients found that this trend as not as practical for their lifestyle. Instead we are often asked to present a solution that borrows that space for something else. Sometimes this is a closet, a smaller tub with more room for a shower, or even a storage bench.

Because 9 times out of 10 these giant soaking tubs were installed beneath a large window area, bench seating really does look perfect there. In this bathroom we created a space matching the same Cherry “Peppercorn” cabinetry and ordered a wood top to match. A custom cushion is already on order for this bench. Yes it looks cool but look at all those drawers! With two walk-in closets already in the room, these drawers can be used for linen storage or toiletries. Cherry bench cabinetry with wood top by Dura Supreme in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Above the original tub are there was a hanging crystal chandelier. The new light fixture included in the Master Bath is an updated take on a traditional chandelier. This orb light by Feiss takes a modern light style and adds sparkle on the interior of the polished nickel metal. We have installed this same light this year into bedrooms, foyers, and even above kitchen islands. Come see sparkle it in person because we have two hanging above our Appliance Sales desk as well in the showroom!Feiss sparkle orb light in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

The shower area also saw many updates to give a more bright and open look. You don’t need a gigantic amount of space to include a lot of features into a custom tiled shower. This 3-wall alcove is proof of that. Take a peek at the before and after images below:Before and after of a custom tiled shower in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Dual shower heads and now tiled all the way to the ceiling, this tiled shower looks great! A custom glass shower door includes a fixed panel of glass on the right and a hinged entry door on the left. Dated polished brass fixtures were replaced with bright polished chrome for the shower and faucet finishes. Double shower in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

A short step up and into the tiled shower is trimmed off nicely with metallic strips at the edges. The Phenix Ravello series of tile was used throughout the bathroom. A 13″ x 13″ “Champagne” tile was installed as the main bathroom floor and on the shower walls. A smaller 2″x 2″ “Pearl” tile was used as the shower base. Tiled shower entry with glass door in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

A decorative row of tile was selected to tie together the wall tile and the Cambria counters on the nearby vanity. This geometric tile from Glazzio’s Hexagon series is a perfect pairing! The Tranquil colors bring in the wall and floor tile and also compliment the cabinet and quartz colors! Tiled shower with a glass corner shelf in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Of course the best part about creating a custom tiled shower with our clients is customizing it with them! Adding niches, benches, and shelves are a great way to add practical elements that can look great too! This shower showcases a glass corner shelf added up within reach of the shower user. This can be a great shelf for toiletries or razors. We also added a corner bench/footrest below that. Tiled shower with a corner footrest shelf in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villaehomestores.com

Perfect for more toiletries or resting a leg while shaving. We even added a strip of accent tile to the front face of the shelf for another little custom detail. Great designs really are made with detail choices like that. Beautiful spaces are really created by layers of details. Who would want a basic white lightswitch to distract from all of these other stunning choices? Our Adorne series by legrand is far from basic! This series of wall switches and outlets offer an updated look and so many color combination possibilities! Contact a lighting expert at Village today to learn more. Adorne switches and outlets by legrand in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Steve’s Mirror & Glass created the shower door entry as well as the the custom mirror that hangs above the vanity. They also provided beveled mirror outlet covers to surround the Adorne outlets on the vanity mirror. A great customized look! Custom mirror and outlet cover by Steves Mirror and Glass in a Moline, IL bathroom remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Quad Cities, IL- A Lower Level Library Full of Details

Village Home Stores doesn’t just design beautiful kitchen and bathroom spaces for your home. Think of ALL of the areas that we can help to make beautiful and customized to your own personal tastes and styles. Take this home study/library for example:
Custom Cherry inset cabinetry by DuraSupreme in a Quad Cities Area home Library. Design and material by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

This beautiful customized space is hidden behind a sliding barn door adjacent to our last featured project. Nothing says sophisticated and studious for a space quite like a rich, cherry woodgrain and custom details. The DuraSupreme cabinetry consists mainly of paneling, trim and shelving but the base cabinets behind the desk are an inset style.
Custom Cherry inset cabinetry by DuraSupreme in a Quad Cities Area home Library. Chapel Hill door and Chestnut stain. Design and material by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

The Chapel Hill door in a Cherry wood stained a “Chestnut” finish, details like a furniture base and added feet to the toespace create interest. The term inset means that the doors sit inside of the cabinet frame instead of overlaying and resting outside of it. This inset style is considered “beaded” inset because of the routed detail around the cabinet frame which houses the doors and drawer fronts.
Seagrove Cambria Quartz and schoohouse decor in a Quad Cities Area home Library. Design and material by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

A Cambria Quartz counter in the “Seagrove” design caps off the back of the desk area. We love the added detail of selecting the Seagrove design that adds the natural-stone look with a veined pattern. A vintage chalkboard adds an upscale schoolhouse style to the space. A touch of old, surrounded by new. The secondary wall of shelving not shown is home to many books and personal items for display (respectfully omitted from this public post). A home library should provide practical storage but also plenty of display space for the user. Two glass-door wall cabinets flank the chalkboard area for more dust-free display space.
Chalkboard in home office. #schoolhouse #decor Design and materials by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Of course baseboards and crown molding can take any project to a more polished and complete look. This library takes it one step further by adding details like decorative wood feet, fluted columns, and carved wooden corbels at the corners (shown below at left). Any added layer allows the light one more edge or curve to catch and highlight the space. Many times customers are concerned so much wood will make a room seem very dark. Layering depths and textures like this helps to keep the look dimensional and highlighted instead of a solid, flat panel of dark wood. Seagrove Cambria Quartz, cherry inset cabinetry and schoohouse decor in a Quad Cities Area home Library. Design and material by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Any completed study space needs wood paneled walls to get the look right. This space includes custom wainscot paneling installed at a chair rail height with a baseboard below. The paint color for the room mimics the chalkboard color and a wingback chair with nailheads completes the look. The only thing missing from the perfect home study space is a roaring fireplace, which because of the rooms location, wasn’t an option. The space still inspires!
Custom Cherry trim and paneling by DuraSupreme in a Quad Cities Area home Library. Design and material by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Our unique series of adorne lightswitches and outlets give a modern update to an otherwise distracting break in the custom wall paneling. Imagine if bright white plastic outlets were cut into these custom wainscot panels. Wouldn’t that distract from the look? Instead, sleek metallic-look plates frame square outlets.
Sliding barn door entrance to a Quad Cities Area home Library. Design and material by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

The same polished “Silver Springs” 12″ x 36″ River Marble floors continue from the kitchenette into the library area. Polished marble and floor-to-ceiling custom cherry shelving give this library a look like no other. This space would look right at home in a well-kept historic estate but we love knowing it is getting great use for this family in the Midwest countryside.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
