Custom Amish Cabinets In a High-Style Rustic Display

This Spring during our showroom closure, we found ourselves with some areas of an available schedule and staff carpenters to finally get around to some projects under our own roof. Our remodel team has been very busy in homes around the region as the year began, so it has been nearly impossible to fit our own projects into the mix. But during the weeks when we didn’t have crews inside of our customer homes, instead our team was able to stay busy and safe in our own controlled and sanitized jobsite: the store! We tore into three displays to give them a fresh new update. The Village Home Stores showroom is now OPEN (by appointment only as of this post May 2020) and many of these projects are wrapping up just in time! We thought we would share with you some of the finished looks here on the blog beginning with this custom Amish-built cabinetry TV surround.

The cabinets may look familiar if you visited us at the 2020 QCBR Home Show this past Winter. There they had a whole different look! Check out the same base and wall cabinet combo with a wood wall treatment instead of the bold tile. We loved how that looked but wanted to tell a different surface story back at the showroom. Bold color is not for everyone (or everywhere), but smaller cabinet spaces can be perfect for it. Powder rooms, kitchen islands, and shown here in a TV surround. This area will be used as another presentation space for our design team to present and select finishes with their clients. The cabinets may be “rustic” but the details truly elevate the look!

We flanked the TV area with a statement wall of tile. Matte black glass subway tiles from the Chapter 1 suite by Jeffery Court is installed in the “Silhouette” color and satin finish. Two blue mosaic strips accent the wall in the “Berrrmos” series and “Beryl” color by Original Style UK tile. Arm style sconces from our Kichler line have been installed near the top of each water-falling blue accent. The countertop surface for this TV area is an Engineered Quartz named “Marquina Midnight”. Black with an organic white veining pattern, this durable and glossy surface looks regal and rustic at the same time.

What is the easiest way to level up any look? Accessorize of course! In the world of fashion we add jewelry. In the kitchen and bath industry we add lighting and hardware! These handles and knobs are from the Chrysalis series by Belwith Keeler. Brushed golden brass is paired with opaque black glass inserts. Contact a designer at Village Home Stores to see some of the other amazing finish combinations in this series and the many other hardware options from this line.

But of course we have to mention the cabinetry in this display! We offer a wide variety of cabinets in terms of finish, customization, and craftsmanship. Atop that list in all categories is our custom Amish cabinetry. This Amish-built cabinet line is crafted with extreme care for our customers by a shop located in Southern Illinois. Your access to wood species and finishes with this line are honestly near limitless. We received questions about these cabinets right away when we posted a preview of them. The bases are a Rustic Hard Maple in a custom finish. What do we mean custom finish? The rustic finish applied to the bases in this display doesn’t have a name technically. In fact, many of our finishes sold from this line are customized to the point they are just named after your jobname. That’s custom! You work with our designers and can even call out how heavily your distressing or finish accents are handled.

The painted cabinets are “Phillipsburg Blue” in an inset doorstyle. We have designed this display to showcase to styles of cabinet overlays and also many options for construction and custom inserts. Unfortunately two of the best ways to explore this cabinet line and how incredible it is just don’t translate well into a blog post. The next time you find yourself in our showroom please touch this finish and open the cabinetry to see what we mean when we describe this line as heirloom quality. The items created for your home are done so with incredible respect for the materials and the process of creating them.

There are many inserts and specialty options that can be included in your design. We love the solid wood options shown above for tray dividers and spice/utensil organizers. Below you see a variation of a double waste basket that includes a lid. These lidded options can be wonderful for storing pet food or recycling items that may not be taken out of the kitchen as often as trash. Ask a designer at Village about your options or show us anything you find online you would like to include in your design.

A custom designed space can be easily disrupted visually by appliances. But in many areas, appliances are absolutely needed to build the best use of an area for you. For example, this corner of the showroom is ideal for a beverage cooler. That way we can offer water or refreshments to our guests without traveling rooms away to another refrigerator. But a big panel of stainless steel or glass would disrupt the finished look of the cabinet design. So we chose to include a Kitchen Aid panel-ready beverage cooler model to hide it in plain sight.

To keep the cabinet configuration symmetrical we even created a false drawer stack look to the panel of the cooler. Panel ready models are available in many categories of appliances. Our cabinet designers can partner with your appliance expert from Village to be sure to build a custom panel designed specifically for the model you have selected. We can also create a finished look that best replicates the cabinet overlay surrounding it. Take a look at the image above and notice that aside from the toespace below, it’s pretty hard to notice the cooler at all. Press play below to see it open.

See more from this finished display at the full album we just posted to our Houzz profile. We created this space in the showroom to be used as another casual presentation area. Our formal conference room is available when a more private conversation is needed. But we have many other presentations spaces/displays in the Village showroom that include a screen where we can mirror your design drawings onto it. Having samples within arms reach can be so helpful as we work closely with you to create an accurate estimate. We have added some seating and a table to the space and the carpeting we selected makes such a fun statement. This is “Bespoke” from our Phenix Carpet Modern Contours series. We have installed it is a wall-to-wall application here. Don’t forget. Any of the carpets we carry can be bound into custom sized area rugs for your home. This series would be perfect for that!

Heartland Builders- Custom Amish Kitchen Cabinets and Marble Look Quartz Tops

Who sells custom cabinetry and countertops in the Quad Cities? Village Home Stores. -villagehomestores.com

At Village Home Stores we offer a variety of cabinetry products so that we can suit any budget and need in the Quad Cities area. When those needs are a completely customized cabinet layout and a chic custom paint and finish, our Amish-built cabinetry from Four Acre Wood Products is perfect! Since Mother Nature has blessed us with so much bright white snow this week, we wanted to return the favor to you with this bright white kitchen feature. Take a look at this stunning space in a recent home we worked on with Heartland Builders of the Quad Cities.

This bright white kitchen just HAD to be featured this week because the paint color is appropriately named “Winter White”. There is truly nothing more classic than a flat-panel kitchen cabinet painted white. It has rested comfortably atop every Kitchen and Bath showroom’s bestselling list for years and has shown no signs of getting kicked off the top of that list. In this open-concept great room space the bright white painted cabinets are a perfect way to keep the entire room feeling light and inviting.

A Lesson in Scale, Rhythm, and Symmetry:

This single image (above) is such a crash course in design we love it so much! How can you keep a single-wall kitchen design from feeling sterile or too contemporary? Careful consideration of your details and keeping a balance with those choices. Scale, rhythm and symmetry are so key in any successful design. Notice how instead of two pendants above that large kitchen island above, there are three? That’s because the scale of light fixture suggests using three to keep that great balance for the eye. Select a larger pendant light and instead two lights would look right. But how is rhythm found in design? Scroll back and “read” the image from left to right and notice what elements repeat. There is a rhythm to it! The staggering up and down of cabinet heights, the doors on the back of the island, the glass in the hood cabinet area, and those pendants.

Of course the beautiful symmetry of the design is soothing to any eye. The walking pantry front on the left is complimented by the tall refrigerator area on the right and so on. Split this kitchen design down the center and the balance is so great that even Marie Kondo herself would have nothing left to “tidy” up about it.

So Why Choose Custom Amish Cabinetry?

As we mentioned before, we have a wide variety of cabinets available at Village Home Stores. From semi-custom, stock-sized cabinets to completely handcrafted heirloom-quality custom cabinets. So why invest in the latter? Because if craftsmanship and quality is something you value, then you will make it a priority for your budget to select one of our custom cabinetry lines. Our mid-range cabinet lines offer upgrades to provide features that are just considered standards for a custom line. With even more upgrades that are available to take your cabinet design to that mentioned heirloom-quality level of craftsmanship. For instance, this Coal Valley kitchen includes soft close hardware on all drawers and doors as well as an all plywood cabinet case, lock-mitered exposed ends, and hand-sanded drawerboxes.

With a custom cabinet line you also have the ability to view and build the kitchen design as an entire completed look, not individual boxes of cabinetry. Sections of cabinetry like the wood hood area and surrounding wall cabinets (shown above) can be built as one section of cabinetry instead of four cabinets. This makes for a more seamless installation and furniture style finished look for areas like hoods, bars, and kitchen islands.

Speaking of seamless design, how about the sleek look of these quartz counters extending up as a full-height backsplash! Full-height kitchen backsplashes are such a classic look and we have been installing so many more of them in both traditional and transitional spaces. A single-wall kitchen design like this is a perfect location for this design choice. The look is fantastic and of course the surface is so much easier to keep clean than a tiled and grouted surface. This quartz is from our Q Quartz line and the faux marble look design is named “Calacatta Laza”.

We also provided the cabinetry and countertop surfaces for the rest of this gorgeous new home. We wanted to share two of the other spaces with you that had a contrasting painted “Matte Black” finish to the bright white kitchen. The first is a slab-style floating vanity we designed for the main bathroom. Floating vanities make such a unique statement and against the textured wall, this look is so fantastic! We also love that the clients chose a vessel sink to add to the vanity statement. The quartz counter surface in this bathroom is the Cambria “Blackwood” design.

We would love to raise a glass and toast this fabulous home bar area as well! The “Hastings” door in a painted black maple wood is from our Koch Classic line of cabinetry. We have paired the rich, dark cabinet finish with “Black Pearl” granite countertops. There is something so sophisticated about a glossy, polished granite top that really makes it take this home bar area to a “top-shelf” look! We also installed this same polished Black Pearl granite in an outdoor kitchen at the home (yes, we can help you make a stunning outdoor kitchen too).

Aspen Homes- Polished Farmhouse Style For Fall Parade of Homes

The Quad Cities Builders and Remodelers Association Fall Parade of Homes is coming up Mid-October and we wanted to give you a tour of one of the homes you can expect to see there. This home is built and designed by Aspen Homes LLC in Bettendorf, Iowa. A polished farmhouse style filled with new finishes and timeless but trendy looks.

The new “White Drift” painted finish from our Koch Classic line has been applied to a Rustic Birch wood in the “Hastings” door. This antiqued look finish makes up the main kitchen and island cabinetry. A custom interior pantry door and “X” endcaps for the island are in a Hickory wood and “stone” stain. Did you know Village Home Stores can order you interior doors perfect for your design? We can!

Two “Covington” lantern pendants from our Capital Lighting line hang above the kitchen island. These same lights would look great in a foyer or many other applications. Your lighting expert at Village will help you select the right fixtures in style and scale for your space. This kitchen blends many metal finishes and it works well in the completed Great Room space.

The “Hastings” cabinet door by Koch is a Full-Overlay style. This means that there is minimal gaps between the cabinet door edges and the faceframe of  the cabinet. It is a great look and when finished off with an undercabinet molding, the look is very polished and complete. Each end of the kitchen island has been fit with custom “X” endcaps.

These endcaps where completely custom made by our Amish line to match the Hickory “Stone” stain repeated in the pantry door. The look of this finish allows the woodgrain to glow through. The balance of the pantry door and island endcaps is the perfect subtle accent amount.

The gray stain is complimentary to the accent highlights in the main cabinetry finish. By selecting a gray stain, that allows a customer to really go many directions for a wood flooring selection. This medium-toned wood floor is a wonderful choice.

Of course no farmhouse styled space can be complete without an apron farmsink! The kitchen island includes a narrow cabinet, the dishwasher, sink base, and pullout trash cabinet. We love the old world style of this kitchen faucet and the polished chrome finish brightens up the room.

Engineered quartz with a nod to a true marble look can be a wonderful solution for a kitchen countertop investment. This kitchen uses our Q Quartz line in the “Calacatta Classique” color. The subtle gray veining is classic and looks right at home here. Once installed, quartz is  extremely durable, stain resistant, and maintenance free.

The back of the island has been treated with a beaded wood panel. The beadboard look allows the “White Drift” finish highlights to have areas to hang up and show the beaded detail. Staggered heights and depths of cabinetry on the perimeter adds interest to the kitchen design. This wall includes the refrigerator and a microwave drawer.

The wall on the other side of the pantry is home to the gas range and a chimney style Stainless Steel hood both from our Whirlpool® line. Large stacks of drawers flank the range for plenty of pots and pans storage.

This 5-burner gas range from Whirlpool® includes a slide-in style that keeps the area behind it clean and clear for tiled details to shine. All of the controls are found on the front of the unit. New EZ-2-Lift™ Hinged Grates on the cooktop. An industry first from Whirlpool®, these cast-iron grate hinge open for easy clean up without removing them completely.

The oven in this unit also includes True Convection features. A third heating unit in the back of the oven uses a fan to evenly distribute heat over under and all around the 5.8 cu. ft. cavity. This feature also means 20% faster preheatinglocal-whirlpool-dealer-quad-cities

Stylish selections that can perform well and clean up fast. That’s a dream kitchen! The look is beautiful and the features and materials are built to last even for an active family. Plenty of storage in this beautiful kitchen in Bettendorf. Sophisticated rustic details keep this farmhouse style space feeling open, bright, clean, and stunning.
