Quad Cities Kitchen With Black and White Cabinets

Welcome to this stunning new home in Bettendorf Iowa, Quad Cities with kitchen and bath designs by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes. Every corner of this new home is an example of a chic and sophisticated take on the clean, Scandinavian-inspired finish trends of combining white, matte black, and light woods. Join us on a short photo tour of the kitchen and bathroom spaces in this incredible new home beginning in the kitchen. Koch Cabinetry in the Savannah doorstyle is painted with a “Black” finish on the kitchen island and “White” for the perimeter. Whirlpool appliances and quartz counters are also featured. Let’s have a look around.

Matte black cabinets are continuing to “climb the charts” so to speak in our industry. We have installed full kitchens, kitchenettes, and countless bath vanities, home bars, and kitchen islands in this neutral finish. Here it is used in a traditional two-tone application as an accent color on the island. Another great look is to install black base cabinets and white uppers. See an example of that here in a past feature. Bright, white glossy Hanstone quartz counters in the “Strato” design are installed on the perimeter and kitchen island. And of course any dream kitchen isn’t complete without a great pantry. Check out that hidden walk-in pantry on the fridge wall!

It’s OK to admit your jealous because we are too! We can order one of these tall cabinet fronts to match your kitchen from Village Home Stores. Even just a small niche of space can be transformed into creative storage solutions inside. With the recent year we have all had, many can agree that we are shopping more and more in bulk. So a pantry like this is a wonderful asset to any busy household. Ask your kitchen designer at Village Home Stores how we can create a design for your new or existing home to include this feature.

The hardware for this kitchen is from our Jeffrey Alexander line in a matte black finish. Notice how on the closed pantry doors (above) a larger scale handle is installed. This is a functional and stylish design choice. While these tall doors are sturdy, they would open very flimsy if a small knob were installed to operate them. Matte black metal was also repeated in the two large pendant fixtures that hang above the kitchen island. These stone seeded glass pendants are 12″ wide and 21 1/2″ high in size from our Capital Lighting line. We have this pendant light on display in our showroom currently if you would like to see it in person. The glass texture is a detail that photos just can’t showcase as well as in person.

Another metal finish is introduced with the appliance suite in this kitchen. Whirlpool’s Stainless Steel is a fantastic fit for this complete vision. A front-control freestanding gas range with chimney-style hood above is the focal point of the back wall of the design. On the other wall you will find a french door refrigerator and Sharp microwave drawer. There is something so classic about a white wall of cabinetry with white on white subway tile and a great cooking pair like this.

This Whirlpool range boasts a massive 5.8 cu.ft. of capacity inside the oven and a 5-burner gas cooktop above including an oval central burner. It also includes a customer-favorite: Frozen Bake™ Technology. This takes the True Convection Cooking components in the oven and puts them to work to allow you to place fully frozen items into a cold oven and get amazing results without a preheat. This cooktop is also a dream to clean. The full-width cast iron grates have EZ-2-Lift™ hinges at the back. Just hinge them open, wipe the surface clean and hinge down!

In the kitchen island there is an apron front farm sink flanked by a pullout waste basket cabinet of the left, and a Stainless dishwasher on the right. This Whirlpool dishwasher has a 1 hour wash option and a Sensor cycle that picks the right cycle just for you. Finished items come out “cabinet-dry” dishes thanks to Fan Dry that uses a fan to pull in fresh, dry air. No more drying clean dishes before putting them away!

Of course a large part of a successfully competed great room design is a lighting plan that is well thought out for function and style. We love the linear caged light that hangs above the dining table just off the kitchen. This is the Quorum Olympus 8-light chandelier and it is shown here in the “Noir” finish. Also, can we get an amen for a dining table with a bench seat!? We love this look and Aspen Homes always does such a great job of staging their spec homes!

The bathrooms in this home are just as dreamy and lux as the kitchen! Check out this double vanity principal bathroom below. Plenty of drawer space for storage and counter between sinks. Outlets are installed on the interior of the two linen cabinets for grooming appliances. Bright white Koch cabinets are made even brighter with polished chrome metal details in this bathroom.

A lighting trend we love is installing your bath lighting directly through a custom wall mirror. This always elevates the look of any fixture but showing it off almost in a 360 view. Check out the image below to see this trend in action. Three “Manhattan” wall sconces from our Capital line are installed in this bathroom. One at the center between the sinks and the other two spaced near the linen cabinets.

Using the mate black trend in a bathroom can also be done while keeping a space feeling open and bright. Mate black accents can help to make graphic statements in your overall design. We love this bathroom in the home that includes two black framed mirrors with lighting, plumbing, and cabinet hardware all in a matte black. Just like the kitchen island lights, these “Colton” Capital fixtures combine a black metal finish with a textured glass.

The same Savannah door from the kitchen is used in this bathroom but a subtle gray paint named “Dusk” is applied. The hardware and lighting accents aren’t the only thing with a softer, matter finish applied. We also can order our cultured vanity tops in a matte finish. The Onyx Collection is a line that offers tops and shower systems. They have tons of modern bowl shapes, and so many colors to choose from. This is not the shell-bowl pink marbled top from your great grandma’s house folks…. but believe it or not its the same product and concept. Matte white is always a classic look. Your designer at Village may ask if you are in need of any end splashes for your top. Below is an example of a (right) end splash. On tops with sinks near a wall or cabinet, these protect that surface from water splashing up.

White, Light Oak, and Matte Black Farmhouse Kitchen – Aspen Homes

This week we are sharing a feature on a custom kitchen we just completed with Aspen Homes in their Woodlands Farm House. This home in Bettendorf Iowa is so stunning it will knock the wind right out of you when you walk in the front door. It is THAT GORGEOUS! Did you know that farmhouse style doesn’t have to mean weathered woods and ship lap covering every surface? This open concept kitchen is an amazing example of a high-end and polished approach to the farmhouse style.

The kitchen is a balanced blend of custom Amish-built cabinetry in a painted “White” and White Oak stained “Sand” finish. The only bold contrast you see is in the accents like faucets, lighting, and accessories. A matte black finish on these items helps the lighting and accents to stand out and make a great statement. The overall cabinetry feels bright, light, and clean with these light finishes and floating shelves. A commercial-style 48″ wide, dual-fuel freestanding KitchenAid range is found on the main wall of the kitchen design. It includes two ovens, 6 burners, and a built-in griddle.

A pro-style range hood insert is housed above that in a custom wood hood cabinet. In a great room kitchen, scale is a very important element to consider for your overall design. In this home the tall ceilings and open spaces still feel bright and light and the size of the 48″ range and 48″ build-in refrigerator are just the right scale for the space. The cabinetry extends all the way to the ceiling and a large-scale crown molding marries the cabinetry to the ceiling. A standard-size and style crown would look out of place here. This angled, large-scale crown is perfect.

On the refrigerator wall, the same “Sand” White Oak cabinetry from the kitchen island is used to surround the built-in refrigerator. Two shelves bridge the tiled wall from the refrigerator to the entry wall. Open shelves in the kitchen and bath design industry continue to become more popular in many styles of spaces. This kitchen includes a lot of cabinet storage space so these wall shelves can be left to style any way you would like throughout the year. Imagine stacked white dishes, leaning artwork, or holiday decor!

There is a rapid-growing interest in light wood flooring and cabinetry in our industry. Would you have predicted just a few years ago that Oak would make such a comeback? Well it’s official, Oak is back in the spotlight… just not the golden Oak we saw year ago. White oak is trending and showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. We love the look of this woodgrain when paired with painted cabinets of any color. The countertop surfaces in this kitchen are an engineered quartz named “Calacatta Laza”.

The hardware in this kitchen is from our Hardware Resources line and the “Brushed Gold” handles are the “Stanton” series. A standard 3″ handle would look off-scale and shrunken in this kitchen design. Using a large-scale handle elevates the look of this entire kitchen design. The brushed gold finish is also repeated in some of the home accessories and lighting. The pendant lighting above the kitchen island makes a huge impact in the space. Three “Brynne” pendants from our Feiss line hang n a Matte Black finish with gold accents.

If you aren’t sure what size or what quantity you need for lighting above your island, please contact our expert team. We can help you select the right fixtures for your space and your budget. Shop our lighting online, anytime here on our lighting website. There you can sort by finish, style, size and more. Plus you can contact us for help on that site. Speaking of lighting, another great fixture in this home hangs next to the kitchen is a serene dining space surrounded by windows.

Here we included a Linear Gabriel 8-light fixture in the “Noir” finish from Quorum. The simple lines look right at home with the black windows in this room. The look is really timeless and on trend at the same time. Many find this upscale farmhouse look to really just be categorized a “New Traditional”. Take a look at the Great Room below and imagine that same space with just a few changes in furniture. Neutral finishes on the cabinetry and surfaces help it to be easy to envision the space jumping from farmhouse, to contemporary, coastal and everywhere in between. The ceiling fan in this room is the “Maverick” from our Monte Carlo line. It is available in many finishes including “Matte Black” (shown).

There you will also find more images of the other incredible rooms in this property. We love how the powder room turned out! This furniture style vanity and marble top from Hardware Resources looks great!

In the Master Bath we repeated the White Oak “Sand” cabinetry with the same hardware and clean-lined doorstyle as the kitchen. Double sink vanity designs are still sought after for many households. Here we broke up the space by changing heights and depths of the drawer stack at the center of the design. This provides a visual interest and creates a clear separation for each user. “Octave” 3-light vanity lighting from our Savoy House line looks incredible in a “Warm Brass” finish above each sink.

We also installed some Matte Black cabinetry in some of the home’s other bathrooms and the wet bar of the lower level. Someone pour us out a pint because we want to hang out in this bar! Black “Savannah” cabinetry from our Koch Classic line is paired with Calacatta Laza Quartz counters and a 3″ thick custom wood butcherblock bar top. That same oak “Sand” stain is repeated in floating shelves on ta back bar wall. Whirlpool’s “Black Stainless Steel” finish looks perfect in this home bar and the fingerprint resistant top coat makes it ready for any party crowd!

Aspen Homes- Classic White on White Kitchen Perfection

There is nothing more classic and transitional for a kitchen than a white painted cabinet. Add to that a glossy white subway tile and a shiplap ceiling and you have yourself a stunning design. (Googles classic white kitchen) Results: this Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen in a home built by Aspen Homes LLCBettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

A white painted shaker-style door and a package of Stainless Steel appliances by Whirlpool. The cabinetry is from our Koch Classic line in the Savannah Door and Maple wood White Paint. Your designer at Village Home Stores will discuss with you how a tall wall cabinet door may look in your doorstyle. In some cases, you may have a choice of layout or want to select another option. We love the symmetrical look of these center divided doors.
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

Speaking of symmetry, the cooking zone of the kitchen is a bright and balanced design. Whirlpool’s front-control gas range is a clean slide-in look and lets the backsplash shine. A wood hood offers a clean and customized look and has been fit with a Broan insert. This insert boasts 390 CFMs for ventilation when needed.Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

Tone-on-tone designs can be so clean and calming for a busy household. As a modern and updated twist on a classic subway tile, these tiles are a beveled style. This look allows light to bounce around and adds a lot of texture to the design without adding another color. A section of glass doors is found on the wall that hosts the refrigerator and microwave drawer.
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

Plenty of storage in the main cabinetry design plus a corner walk-in pantry. At the center of the kitchen is an island with the sink and dishwasher. A classic layout for a classic kitchen design. Notice how the cabinetry and crown extend to the ceiling in this kitchen. It even extends beyond the wall cabinetry sections and continues to ribbon around the entire kitchen (see angled wall above pantry door below)
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

A classic look of marble with the maintenance-free benefits of quartz. The counters throughout this kitchen are by Cambria Quartz in the Swanbridge design. An undermounted sink in an e-granite material gives a softer, more matte finish look. Notice that the center divider in this Elkay sink is lowered?
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

This is a feature to allow you to fit wider items into the sink to wash (think large pans with handles) but the shallow “Aqua Divide” divider gives you the option to have a shallow fill for your sink to soak some items. Check out the lines the lighting selections create a a bold, dark finish contrast to the white-on-white design:

A shiplap ceiling treatment sets the stage for two schoolhouse-shaped pendants above the kitchen and a simple chandelier in the Dining Room. A seeded glass on the Feiss “Alcott” pendants diffuses the bulb brightness a bit and adds a fun texture. The 9-light chandelier in the Dining Room is named “Hartford” and is from our ELK line.

You don’t need a medicine cabinet to get great bathroom storage! In fact… what can you even fit into a medicine cabinet anymore? Go deeper with a wall cabinet that extends down to your countertop. Added drawers for hair appliances and makeup are a wonderful touch. Many times our builders will even add an outlet concealed behind the door of the cabinets because you can never have enough outlets!

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.
White Drift painted kitchen with Gray Stone stained accents. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
White Drift painted finish from Koch Cabinetry. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
Painted cabinets paired with cerused hickory finish pantry door and island details. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
Painted cabinets paired with cerused hickory finish pantry door and island details. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
Farmsink faucet inspiration. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
Painted cabinets paired with cerused hickory finish pantry door and island details. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.

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.

Aspen Homes- Transitional Style on Parade in Bettendorf, IA

“Build your dream home with your now budget” that’s the phrase that greets you on the new Aspen Homes LLC Website. With the Aspen team and your new home team here at Village Home Stores that is absolutely possible! Take a look around this Bettendorf, IA kitchen that was part of the QCBR Spring Parade of Homes this year. Transitional style kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.comPainted white cabinets on the perimeter and a stained gray kitchen island to anchor the space. This L-shaped kitchen design sits in a great room layout that or open, bright and stylish. The “Legacy” door from our Koch Classic line in their painted “White” finish paired with a Cherry wood stained “Stone” in the same door. “Calcutta Gold” Engineered Quartz tops and a  Whirlpool® Stainless Steel appliance suite complete the look. White kitchen with long subway tile Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

The new look of the Whirlpool® slide-in ranges is amazing! Now referred to as “front-control” ranges, these gas and electric units have no back control panel raising up to cover the backsplash area. This new design allows the full-access of sight for a backsplash and can be installed in any traditional 30″ wide range opening. The hood wall absolutely becomes the focal point of the kitchen design. Symmetrical in layout and complimented with the island and lighting placement just in front of it. The pendants selected for this kitchen offer style and function but also don’t block the view of that focal wall.

Two lantern-style lights from our Kichler line hang above the kitchen island. Our New Construction lighting expert works closely with you, the Aspen team, and your kitchen designer here at Village Home Stores to determine the best style, scale, and placement for your kitchen island lighting.

The lantern shape is a traditional choice for a foyer light in a home. Using it here helps bridge the gap between Transitional and New-Traditional. We love the look! A wall of cabinetry near the home office includes the Whirlpool® counter-depth french door Refrigerator and a Sharp® microwave drawer. The counter-depth feature on this refrigerator helps to keep the traffic from the back entry of the home clear and open in the design.

A white farmsink is a perfect contrast to stand out in the single-level kitchen island. Drawer storage, a dishwasher, and a pull-out wastebasket are all included in the island design. A black accent glaze has been added to the Cherry “Stone” stain to help highlight the door details on the island.
Gray stained kitchen island. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

The sides and back of the island has been treated with a smooth panel in the same Cherry “Stone” stain. Trim has been added to divide up the space into three sections. We have seen a larger trend of single-level islands like these to include barstools that are backless. While this style may not be comfortable for all, the look is more open and less crowded.

Open Concepts in the way of a Great Room design are truly the desired layout for new homes in the Quad Cities area. For busy families, young professionals who like to entertain, or retirees looking to downsize, everyone is wanting a more open living space. With beautiful views of the Midwest countryside out these windows, who wouldn’t want to see that from every room possible.

Great Rooms can be very versatile spaces. As you can see, there is plenty of space for seating in the great room. 4 barstools fit comfortably at the island and a dining table is nearby for a more formal option. Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining area. A 6-light fixture named “Pearson” from our Capital line has a sleek modern profile with a nod to a traditional style fixture. Pearson light by Capital Lighting in a dining area.
