Eldridge Iowa Bathroom Remodel With Laundry Area

Did you know that Village Home Stores services the entire extended Quad Cities Region? What does that mean exactly? It means that our showroom in Geneseo, IL us really just a short drive away from many cities in the surrounding Illinois and Iowa area. Eldridge Iowa is a wonderful example of one of those cities. In recent years we have had our design and product installed in both new and existing homes there. This week’s feature project is a remodeled Master Bathroom just 35 miles away from our showroom in Eldridge. Take a look at this great new space.

We have replaced the single sink vanity area with a double-bowl layout. Cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Bristol” door and Maple wood species. Our bestselling gray neutral “Fog” paint is applied with Satin Nickel Bremen handles. A closet area has been converted to a stylish laundry nook inside the Master Bath. Wall cabinetry hangs above a front-load washer and dryer from our Maytag line. Having laundry located on the main level of a home can be such a convenience! And with these front-loaders now located in the Master Suite of the home, sorting and putting away laundry is just steps from the machines. We also installed a wall of cabinetry opposite the washer and dryer that includes a tall cabinet and a hanging rail.

Pedestals raise the washer and dryer up to a level that is ideal for loading and unloading the machines. Each pedestal opens up to provide more storage. They even fit short, rectangle-style laundry baskets within! This laundry pair is a powerhouse for any household! Backed by Maytag’s 10 Year Limited Parts Warranty with coverage on the Direct Drive Motor, Washer Basket, and Drum. Large capacity, steam settings, and a refresh cycle make them a great choice for a front load pair. We have installed new floor tile throughout the bathroom. It is a 12″x 24″ Amelia tile in the “Mist” color. This same tile is used as the wall tiles in a new custom shower area. We snapped a photo of the new shower before the custom door was installed:

Aren’t those custom wall niches great!? Symmetrical shelves make it easy to separate and store toiletries and soaps. The accent tile used as the shower floor, bench, and inside of these niches is also banded around the shower walls. The 2″ x 2″ basket-weave tile is from the same Ameila series as the wall tiles but in the contrasting “Carbon” color. We love how the bench area looks like it just waterfalls down into the shower floor in this home.

A Delta shower head and removable hand wand was installed for the new shower. Notice that the wand is adjustable for location and it is attached to a grab bar for added safety.

Including grab bars in a bathroom remodel is a wise investment for any home no matter your age or ability. Age-at-home features like these grab bars add a level of safety for all users and certainly add a priceless piece of mind to your remodel selections once everything is installed and finished.

We included another storage area above the new toilet in the bathroom. These stand-alone cabinets are called “toilet toppers” and typically include an open shelf space as well as a concealer door area for toilet paper and other items to be stored out of sight.

Next to the toilet is a great example of our Radiant series of switches and outlets. Notice how this series has no visible screws!? We love that clean look and detail. This series has many great options including a nightlight (shown off/on below).

In keeping with the other clean and fresh material selections, a marble-look quartz counter was installed to replace the original navy blue cultured marble top. This color is the Carrara Grigio design with an undermounted Caxton sink. A quartz backsplash and endsplashes complete the look.

Hazelwood Homes- White Painted Kitchen With Glaze and Black Island

Our first featured kitchen of the year is in a brand new home built in Geneseo, IL by the team at Hazelwood Homes. This space is a white painted kitchen with an applied glaze and a black painted accent island. It also includes quartz counters, an incredible flooring choice, and a Stainless Steel appliance package. We work closely with our new construction clients to build a team of experts from each department of our store needed. We are all one team working along with you to reach one vision. That way the time spent working on your project in and out of the Village Home Stores showroom is spent wisely. We value your time and we want to see you happy in your new home with the selections you have made from us. The process of building a home can be overwhelming but we do our best to make it fun an exciting. No matter if you are building, remodeling, or just browsing our blog for ideas, there are a lot of great material and design details in this space so let’s jump right in.

What a beautiful space! Selecting white kitchen cabinetry in a great room kitchen setting is always a wonderful choice to keep the entire open concept light and airy. It is a classic cabinet finish that has remained on home magazines covers for years and years. This kitchen space takes a classic look to a whole new level though with added details and material choices that keep it functional and very eye-catching. Beginning with the statement accent island in the center of the kitchen.

This single-level kitchen island includes storage on three sides, outlets on each end, and an overhang for counter-height seating. A gradual, curved radius has been applied to that overhang to soften the look. This island is the best area to showcase the countertop selection for the kitchen. The “Summerhill” design from Cambria Quartz is as durable as it is gorgeous. A blend of expertly curated neutral quartz colors makes it work with so many styles and material combinations. Cambria’s innovative fabrication process even adds a natural looking veining to the slabs. This gives you the look of natural stone with a control of color. It is also an incredibly durable product and perfect surface for any active kitchen. Learn more about Cambria Quartz here in a past blog post.

Above is a closer shot of the “Summerhill” tops in this kitchen. Notice how it includes whites, beiges, grays, AND even a black fleck! Stop in and see samples and installed examples of Cambria Quartz at our showroom. Curious how a Cambria color will look in your existing kitchen? There’s an AR app to “try” them on! Learn more here on the Cambria site! The perimeter counters in this kitchen have been an “Ogee” edge applied for added style and dimension. A great way to show off that the Cambria quartz colors are throughout the entire slab of material from top to bottom. Now do us a favor. Scroll back up to the very first image of this kitchen and look at the inset doorstyle of the kitchen cabinets we’ll wait right here for you to return… and reveal that AREN’T inset doors at all! But at first glance did we have you tricked?

Inset cabinetry is an incredible look and a very classic choice for any kitchen design. But in this home, we have given the illusion of a high-end inset door at a fraction of the investment. This is the “Lexington” door from our Koch Express line of cabinetry. It has been painted in the “White” finish and a “Black Accent” has been applied to the door details. That added accent is what give the illusion of a door inset and shadowed. This small detail added to a traditional-overlay cabinet door gives a great look. It also helps to compliment the black island cabinetry perfectly. We love how the kitchen island pendants compliment the appliances in this space. These 16 1/2″ pendant lights are from Quorum’s Signature Collection and are in the Satin Nickel finish. Satin nickel is a great compliment to the Whirlpool Stainless Steel appliances.

A 26 cu. ft. French Door refrigerator with double drawers and dual icemakers is a great choice for this busy kitchen. The focal point of this wall s the 30″ wide 5-burner gas cooktop with a tall chimney hood above. Shop all of our appliances any day, any time here on our new mobile-friendly website. What a great look for this wall of the kitchen design! Look at how the tile extends all of the way up to meet the angled ceiling behind the hood. A clean look on the edge of that tile is achieved by using a metal edge band to “cap” off the ends in a complimenting Nickel finish.

Oh trust us, we know you noticed that pot-filler faucet above the cooktop right away! Our envy-radar also went off when we saw it. Choices like these are what make a space gorgeous AND functional. We wanted to also showcase here the use of a classic subway tile in white paired with an accent tile and contrasting grout. White subway tile with a dark contrasting grout is an on-trend look but it’s not for everyone. In this kitchen, it would have been a very busy look to have a darker contrast. This subtle color choice pulls a neutral from the counter surface color and the look is great. The accent tile here is from Epic Stone’s Interlocking series in the “Everest” color combination. We also used this same accent tile in one of the tiled showers in the home (shown below).

This shower includes an elongated version of a subway tile These tiles are 4″ x 16″ and installed horizontally, they add a stylish detail while helping to make the shower seem wider. That same accent tile fro the kitchen is used as a band around the shower and also reappears on the front face of the corner bench. A 2″ hexagon tile is used here as the shower floor. Notice also the installation of a shower grab bar at the entrance. See more examples of grab bars we have installed here in this Houzz ideabook. This has become a common request from our clients of all ages and abilities. Installing assistance like this that will help a customer age-at-home and just remain safe is always a great investment!

Back to the kitchen where we can mention another important investment. The flooring you choose for a new home is so important. You want to make selections that will be durable and compliment all of the other selections you are making for fixtures and furniture in your new home. In an open concept layout like this, our COREtec engineered plank floors are a great choice. COREtec comes in a large variety of wood styles and finishes so there truly is something for any space. What our COREtec customers love beyond the look is the performance! These surfaces are kidproof, waterproof, and petproof! For our remodel customers they are great because they can also easily be installed over existing hard surfaces. Contact a flooring expert at Village Home Stores to learn more.

Alpha, IL – White and Gray Kitchen With Hidden Laundry

We included this kitchen before and after story in an episode of the Village Home Show. See a full video tour of this space by pressing play.

Village Home Stores understands the importance of the home you create for you and your family. Deciding when is the right time to downsize or remodel your home is an important step for any homeowner. Many of our customers that use our Complete Project Management Process are interested in investing in changes to their homes to help them age-at-home more comfortably and happily. There are many remodel changes you can make to a bathroom to help allow you to age at home, but the kitchen is another great location for these investments in your home happiness. Just look at this bright and spacious remodeled kitchen in Alpha, Illinois:
Kitchen remodel in Alpha, IL with painted Dura Supreme cabinetry and Cambria quartz. | villagehomestores.com

This remodel involved building out an addition to the home of about ten feet in depth and twenty feet in length. The original kitchen was small and very limited in counterspace and storage. Squeezing a small table in the kitchen and having the garage entry right in the kitchen, created a busy and crowded room.

We were so thrilled to design a more functional and beautiful space for these sweet customers. Plus we were able to put them at ease with our step-by-step process because Village Home Stores coordinated it all! Estimating, designing, delivery, and installation plus the many subcontractors on site where scheduled by our Project Management team. Our process helps to keep your project on track and on budget. 

The new kitchen is bright, spacious, and super functional! Instead of the original U-shaped layout with peninsula, the new kitchen is an L-shape with a single-level island and a long section of new storage cabinetry across the room. The added space from the home addition helped to transform the small kitchen into a new room that can be used as a kitchen, dining room, drop zone, home office, and even laundry room! Kitchen remodel in Alpha, IL with Linen White and Zinc painted Dura Supreme cabinetry and Cambria quartz. | villagehomestores.com

That’s right! An incredible home office desk area is just across the room from the new kitchen. A wall-mounted TV and banjo-shaped countertop for a seated desk area helps to use every inch of space available. The light fixture you see hanging above indicates where the new casual dining table will be located.

But why TWO tall pantry cabinets for this couple? Well… that’s the laundry room we mentioned! These pantry fronts have been ordered to match the new kitchen but open to reveal a brand new pair of front-load laundry from our Maytag line!

Remodeling to include laundry in a more convenient and accessible area of your home is a fantastic feature anyone at any age or ability can appreciate. Any time you can place laundry in a main level of a home, you create a safer user experience. Plus no bending over or lifting because each unit is installed on top of a raised pedestal for easier loading and unloading. 

(Pardon the cute dog “photobomb” above in the left corner) So much capacity in the laundry pair plus great storage in this hidden laundry area. The pedestals are actually drawers that slide open for detergent storage and even small laundry baskets can fit within. Above the laundry are two deep sections of pantry storage perfect for bulk items. There is even a broom closet cabinet between the laundry and desk area. 

Another age-at-home feature that can be appreciated by users of any age and ability is a raised dishwasher. Who loves to bend down to load an unload a dishwasher? Nobody! Raising it up to a more comfortable height can be a design choice you are thankful for on a daily basis. This KitchenAid dishwasher is super quiet at just 46 dba and even has a third level rack for washing utensils, cutlery, and lids. 

The cabinetry in this kitchen is from our Dura Supreme line in the Full-Overlay Hudson door and painted “Linen White” finish. The center panels of the hood cabinet have been given a beaded panel to compliment the beaded back of the kitchen island. The island cabinetry is painted in a “Zinc” gray finish. Our bestselling Diode LED undercabinet lighting helps to illuminate the new kitchen backsplash and switches and outlets from our stylish Adorne series by legrand. The main tile is a 3×6 subway tile in a brick lay pattern with and accent strip at the center. The fun accent tile is by Florida Tile and is Streamline Ivy series in the Shadow Gray color.

There is great storage throughout the new kitchen layout. Below is a photo showing our bestselling corner cabinet option, a lazy susan without center pole. Fixed shelves with rotating susan trays allow sturdy access to the full corner. This client has their pots and pans stored right in reach of the new gas range.

Whirlpool’s front-control gas range is a sleek and functional model. This unit includes convection features and 5.8 cu.ft. of capacity in the oven. The rack systems inside of our ovens have improved so much over the years to help you use the space better. Ask you appliance salesperson at Village Home Stores to show you the inside layout of the range you are shopping with us. You will be surprised at how usable the space can be.

A shelf microwave is placed in a tall cabinet and a wood hood with blower insert is above the new range. Ask your kitchen designer about all of the hood options you have for your new kitchen design. Not everyone has to do a chimney style or microwave hood. We have many options available.  Kitchen remodel in Alpha Illinois with Stainless Steel Appliances from Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

One of our favorite storage cabinets in the new kitchen is a spice rack that can open and be accessed right from the user at the range. Dura Supreme has hundreds of great storage solutions available. If you have a specific item or small appliances that you want to include as a part of your kitchen design just ask! We can help keep you organized and your counters clear of clutter with a well-planned design.

A counter depth refrigerator model is always a great way to keep a kitchen plan open and pathways clear. This french door model from Whirlpool is great with an internal water dispenser and incredible interior shelf storage. We just love how the Stainless Steel finish looks in this bright white and gray kitchen.

A counter-depth refrigerator model, along with the added space from the room addition allowed us to provide generous pathway allowances between the kitchen counters and the new kitchen island. As you can see below, there is about a 45″ distance in this L-shape of pathway within the kitchen. Kitchen remodel with painted Dura Supreme cabinetry and Cambria quartz in the Berwyn design are featured.

The countertop edge itself adds an element of style to the new kitchen. An “Ogee” edge profile has been applied to Cambria Quartz in the Berwyn design.  This edge profile is always impressive in person because the light catches the edge as you walk in and around the kitchen. The Ogee edge is a great way to dress up a subtle or neutral colors countertop.  The radius corners and overhang curve of the island top help to soften the look of the space.

There is a wonderful new kitchen island in the new design. Plenty of seating on the back side for two plus great storage facing the inside of the kitchen. Two large drawer stacks with some including an adjustable pegboard dish storage interior. For some, this is a great way to store dishes and bowls. It allows you a more comfortable way to lift up from a drawer and not down from a high wall cabinet. Kitchen remodel with painted Dura Supreme cabinetry and Cambria quartz in the Berwyn design are featured. Peg drawer insert. | VillageHomeStores.com

We also included an outlet on the end of the kitchen island. This makes it easier for small appliance use or even plugging in laptops or chargers if a user is seated at the island. Between the two large drawer stacks is a narrow spice drawer cabinet. These drawers may look cute and decorative to you but they can be very functional! This client had one dedicated to medications and vitamins and another for toys and goodies for the grandkids.

All of these gorgeous new finishes and design changes make life more comfortable for everyone in the home, including these two sweet pups. They love their new Permastone luxury vinyl flooring from our Tarkett line. 6 x 48″ planks in the Tundra finish are perfect for laying in a sunbeam and watching birds and wildlife outside their new sliding glass door.
