Prophetstown, IL- Master Suite Remodel

Join us as we tour this beautifully remodeled Master Suite in Prophetstown, IL. Rustic materials with a refined look, it looks amazing! A set of French doors with textured glass open up to reveal a new space including a custom tiled shower, large soaking tub, a private watercloset area, and a stunning vanity area.

This Master Suite in the countryside is a rural retreat with earth tones and flowing organic lines in the mirrors and lighting selections. Neutral colors were selected as a backdrop to help showcase details like rustic knotty wood cabinets and some of the most interesting vanity sinks we have ever installed!

Two vessel sink areas are divided by a wall cabinet that meets the countertop in the center. A stack of drawers in brought out deeper to create a divided look and add interest to the shape of the vanity top. Koch Cabinetry in the “Vicksburg” doorstyle has been installed in a Rustic Beech wood species. This rustic wood is dressed up in a “Mocha” stain.

We love how the bright polished chrome hardware stands out on this rich “Mocha” finish. Speaking of standing out, how fun are the vessel sinks and faucets!?! These unique faucets seem to “sprout” out from the countertops. When turned on, the smooth glass design waterfalls down into the matching vessel sink. What a great look!

These unique sinks rest on a beautiful piece of maintenance-free quartz. Quartz is a fantastic material to use in a bathroom because it is durable and non-porous. This means that spilling any products onto the top will not cause damage to it. There is no risk of scratching or scorching the tops either. Cambria Quartz in the “Fairbourne” design is a great subtle choice as a base to showcase these unique sinks. The look is beautiful and this customer selected a great edge profile to showcase the unique custom shape of their vanity design as well. The “Waterfall” edge from Cambria catches the light and adds a great detail to the look.

Tour this entire bathroom remodel on a recent episode of the Village Home Show. We walk you through every detail and finish. Press play in the thumbnail below to see this bathroom plus a hall bath and kitchen work that were all completed by our store.

Other details include the addition of furniture style feet in the toespace of the sink cabinets. This helps give a more convincing furniture-style look and adds a formal feel to the rustic materials. Adding feet may seem like a small detail, but it is these small details that work together to give a truly customized end result.

In this Master Bathroom the shower has been separated from the tub area. Visible right upon entry into the Master Bath, this shower is eye-catching but not to be upstaged by the beautiful tiled tub area in front of it.

There is plenty of space for a large “drop-in” soaking tub. A tiled deck surrounds it and the accent tile from the shower is carried over into the front apron area of the tub plus the back of a custom tiled niche.

Consider ever bit of space as a chance to love your finished design. This wall niche is in the perfect location for soaps and toiletries to be stowed away. The niche also gave a great opportunity to repeat the accent mosaic tile.

Speaking of customizing every corner of your design, why not add a bench in your shower. This tiled corner bench area might not seem like a large feature but it can be a place to rest a leg when shaving, or even set down toiletries within reach. benchSo many of the bathrooms we remodel now include a custom tiled shower instead of a standard unit. Custom showers like this allow us to add the shower to whatever unique location you may have. Many times this means you may end up with a larger and more open shower look. Tiled showers commonly receive a custom glass entry of some sort. In this case, a short threshold of tile was installed and an glass door hinges out into the Bathroom.

To help let in as much natural light as possible, a fixed pane of glass is installed from the kneewall behind the tub to meet the top of the custom door. The finished look is great and the end result is a more open and bright shower space.

There is plenty of storage in this new Master Bath. Whatever will not fit in the vanity area can certainly find a home in this built-in linen cabinet. A tall cabinet front was ordered to match the vanity area and now this corner of the bath has a customized look.

In the opposite corner of the bath from the linen cabinet is the stool. A private “water closet” space can be a wonderful layout choice when planning a large bathroom like this. The light oak trim and doors are a great contrast to the dark Rustic Beech wood of the cabinetry.
watercloset

This same light wood finish is found on the set of French Doors that lead out from the Bath into the Master Bedroom. In place of a clear glass or even mullioned wood and glass doors, textured inserts were selected. We love the way this allows light in and out of the Bathroom while also giving privacy with the heavy texture. Village Home Stores has a wide selection of doors and millwork that we can provide during a project like this.

Bettendorf Bathroom Remodel: Master Bath Rejuvenated

bathroom_remodel_bettendorf

Starting 2016 off…in the bathroom? Well, we figured there is no better place to start the year of featured projects than where you start your own day… the bathroom! bow front vanity by Bertch Bath. | VillageHomeStores.com

It’s where you begin and end your day. If your home layout includes a Master Suite, your Master Bath can be a true escape from the rest of the home. What good is it to have a Master Suite with a bathroom that isn’t really functional for your own needs? That was the case for this Bettendorf family.
Bathroom remodel in Bettendorf, IA. | VillageHomeStores.com

A big bright space to work with but an original layout that just wasn’t the best for them. For example, if you look above at the before and after of the exterior vanity area just outside of the bathroom you see a sink. That was the original Master Bath. While having a vanity sink in your main master bedroom may work in a Hotel type setting… at home, it wasn’t ideal. The new layout added not just one but two vanity sinks and both now live in the Master Bath itself.
Bow front vanity cabinet. | VillageHomeStores.com

This double bowl vanity configuration includes vanity cabinets from our Bertch Bath line. The transitional style of the “Osage” door can be ordered in a number of woods and finishes. Shown here in the Birch wood and “Brindle” finish is by far it’s most popular combination. The option to remove the toespace and add “feet” to any cabinet can be a great look. It takes a cabinet and gives it a real furniture-style look. You have a choice of 4 wooden and 3 metal feet  within the Bertch line. This configuration is compiled by two sink bases and a drawer stack in the center.

Another look that can really dress up your cabinetry and countertop in a bathroom is to consider a “bow-front” cabinet. Each of the sinkbases used in this Bettendorf Bath were ordered with a bow-front. This subtle curve mimics a chest of drawers or a formal sideboard cabinet. The added curves to the vanity top also helps the long double bowl vanity look less basic and instead stunning as your first view on entering the Bath.
bettendorf_bathroom

Just outside of the Master Bath entrance is that original location for the vanity sink. The new design has transformed this into a more traditional sink-less vanity area that can be used as a landing space or a hair and makeup station. This exterior vanity has a wood top which makes the cabinet seem more formal and at home in the nook of the Master Bedroom.showerbeforeandafterIf you look at the first Before/After image we shared at the beginning of this post, you can see the original Bath had a small shower in the front corner of the space. On the opposite end of the Bath was a large soaking Jacuzzi tub with a window above. With a tub/shower unit in the Bath just next door to this Master Bath, the new design now includes one large walk-in shower. With the shower-head section of the shower concealed with glass, no door is needed on the opposite end. Just an open entrance. The homeowner did mention that she loves the decision they made to located the shower controls near the entrance to the shower. This makes it easy to turn on the water to warm up and shut down on exiting.
bathremodel

We more and more of this in both new homes and remodels. use that space to give yourself a spacious and serene custom tiled shower. Our crews built a half-wall to divide the bathroom vanity area from the shower. This wall allowed a location for the glass installers to place an Oil-Rubbed Bronze channel to fix the glass into.
Custom tiled shower in Bettendorf bathroom remodel | VillageHomeStores.com

On the side of that half-wall that faces the shower user we included a custom tiled niche. This space can now house toiletries within reach of the user and also keep them out of sight. By designing a custom tiled shower in your space in place of a freestanding shower unit, you can customize your experience and get a look perfect for your room.
custom_tile_shower

Inside of that niche is the same glass mosaic tile used as a backsplash above the bathroom vanity top and as an accent strip surrounding the entire shower. Bathrooms are a perfect location to include a mosaic accent because they can truly help tie everything together.

Let’s all give a round of applause to the son of this couple who helped them find the perfect tile! Seriously folks, let your kids participate in the selection process they may really love it!  This mosaic from our Jeffery Court collection perfectly ties the main tile, vanity, fixtures, and paint color together! Hanstone quartz Royal Blanc. | VillageHomeStores.com

The countertop for the double vanity is an Engineered Quartz by Hanstone. The “Royal Blanc” quartz and undermount white oval bowls looks perfectly at home in the space and don’t distract from the rest of the finishes. Oil-Rubbed Bronze fixtures and lighting are a great compliment to the wood vanity.

Rock Island Bath Remodel: A Snowy Winter Palette

cambria_quartz_rock_islandWith our very first snowstorm of 2015 on the way to the area, we thought what better project feature to “snow” you in with than this Rock Island, IL bathroom remodel. We absolutely love the finishes this customer selected from our store to create an upscale look with touches of texture and sparkle we can’t wait for you to see.snow color palette | VillageHomeStores.com

Painted white cabinetry from our Koch line is accented with a grey “Smoke” glaze on all of the vanity edges. Large gray 12″ x 24″ floor tiles create the perfect base for the new bathroom. Polished chrome fixtures like the Delta “Vera” series faucets and shower fixtures are very sleek. The tile in the walk-in shower is what truly steals the show! Elongated glass subway tiles 4″ x 12″ in size are accented with waterfalling mosaics from Glazzio.shower

While the wall tiles look smooth and sleek, the floor of this custom shower has an added texture that does bring the outdoors in. Black “pebble” tiles from our Florida Tile line are grouted in place and give a foot massage to bare feet every time you use the shower.

cambria_whitney

You know that perfect sparkle of fresh snow? These Cambria Quartz “Whitney” counters have that same glimmer when the light hits them. That same glimmer can be found in the crystal-filled wall sconces from Golden Lighting. The “Alston Place” series is available in many different fixture configurations from this single sconce to large chandeliers. smoke_glaze

The double-bowl vanity is full of storage and that “Smoke” glaze really does highlight the details and compliment the other finishes in the bathroom. The shower itself was a unique space. originally tiled with a single size of powder blue ceramic, the new design is a stylish upgrade.beforeshower

When installing a custom-tiled shower, we are able to add storage niches and shelves and benches like the one shown here below. This new shower area was waterproofed and a custom wall niche and corner bench was installed. Pebble tile on base of shower floor. | VillageHomeStores.com

Master Bath Remodel: Spa Day Can Be Every Day

titleWho says a staycation can be overrated? Not a chance when this Master Bathroom retreat is where you could book your spa day! Medium oak cabinetry, trim and doors were replaced with a cool, serene collection of finishes. White doors and trim create a high contrast to the dark cherry cabinetry installed into this relaxing new spa getaway in Colona, IL.

bathroom_vanity_Quad_Cities

Giving the look of a high-end hotel but with all of the extra storage needed, there are two identical vanities in the new space. Storage below in the vanities allows for a cleaner look to be applied to the space above them. A framed mirror in place of a medicine cabinet mirrors back the vanity directly across from it as well as all of the light throughout the bath.

bathroom_vanities_Quad_CitiesThe Cabinetry and framed mirrors where custom ordered from our Dura Supreme Cabinetry line in a dark cherry stain. Brushed hardware and the addition of decorative feet to the toespace help set off this look. “Gray Expo” Silestone quartz countertops with undermounted white bowls perfectly compliment the surrounding tile selections. Let’s take a look at what other details went into creating this serene new space.

Adorne square plugs by LeGrande. | VillageHomeStores.comYou may have noticed that there are not any boring white wall switches distracting from this gorgeous new space. Our Adorne® series of switches and plugs have been installed throughout this new Master bath as well as the Master Bedroom just outside of it.

Adorne switches in a remodeled Master Bathroom. | VillageHomeStores.comThis series allows you functions like pop-up outlets, wave-control switches and even U.S.B. charging stations all within a sleek square receptacle. Frame them in with one of their many plate choices or create your own custom wall plate. Get ready to start seeing more and more of our projects with these products they are truly amazing!

heated_floorsAn in-floor heating system has been installed beneath the new ceramic flooring. Cold bare feet are no match for this new cozy upgrade. What rests on these warm floor is the most inviting tub you could ask for.

Chandelier above the bathtub. | VillageHomeStores.comYour first view into this new space is of the new freestanding tub with an arched tray ceiling above. The previous tub dropped into a tiled platform and an oak apron filled this entire alcove. The same space is now open and outstanding!

tub_lightWhen you create such a perfectly framed space for a focal point you have to have just the right element to complete it. In this case it is the “Layla” hanging light fixture by Crystorama above the new tub.  Always remember that if you have an idea you have seen somewhere online or in a magazine, our team is always eager to see what inspires you and help include those things into your own design.

vanity_light With a light like the one above the tub, it is better to compliment it than compete with it for the remaining lighting. Knowing the vanity lights would be mounted on the mosaic tile and be within sight of the tub fixture, these lights from Feiss were a great choice. the same mosaic tile was installed in the wall shelf near the tub as well as an accent in the new shower.

tub_shelfIf the tub is not where you will want to spend your time the new walk-in shower sure will be! If one showerhead just isn’t enough for you how about a rain showerhead above, a standard showerhead, and a handheld unit?

dual_showerheadThis walk-in tiled shower includes a bench and built-in shelf for toiletries. A rain shower head has also been installed above and can be used with or without the main shower unit. They each run on their own control system.

stoolOpposite the entrance to the walk-in shower is a private area for the stool in the Master Bath. A custom toilet-topper wall cabinet was designed to house toiletries and extra linens in the wide space above the stool.

crown_moldingLike many great things are, a gorgeous space gets that way because of the details. Just like the Adorne® collection gives the wall outlets and switches that added edge, details like crown molding can complete a look. The unique shape of this Master bath allows many locations for crown molding to draw attention to the room’s shape.

faucetOther details like the waterfalling faucet fixtures all help create one cohesive and complete look. Many times bathroom projects can be difficult to visualize as you start to select materials you love. When you work with Village Home Stores we can help as little or as much as you would like. From start to finish, we are here.

Bath Remodel: Counter Clutter Contained in Moline Bath

Moline_Bathroom_remodelersThe Moline kitchen we featured on the blog a few weeks back also had a nearby bathroom in the home that was remodeled as well. Village Home Stores offers bathroom vanities available from all of our cabinet lines. We also carry the the full line of Bertch Bath products made not to far from us in Waterloo, IA. Bertch offers bath cabinetry in a number of sizes and layouts and can be ordered in many wood species and finishes.

vanityThis bathroom may only house one small vanity but there are a lot of great ideas within this new space. The first is the vanity itself. The “Hudson” doorstyle is one of the most versatile vanity styles available from the Bertch Bath catalog. This is because it can be finished and styled in so many different ways. The vanity in this space has been ordered in a Alder wood and dark “Brindle” finish has been applied. Decorative feet have also bee added in place of a toekick area to give a more freestanding and furniture look to the cabinet.

bathroom_cabinetBertch_Bath_MolineTo keep that furniture vanity appearance, a framed mirror has been installed above the vanity in place of a tri-view medicine cabinet that may be expected here. A single panel of beveled mirror is framed in the same mitered “Hudson” style as the doors. The single-door medicine cabinet installed on the nearby wall to the left creates a storage space for small items and keeps them off the vanity counter.

The wall outlet for this bath vanity is a very busy place. Many women can relate to the multiple devices like straighteners and blow-driers and curling rods that can clutter up a bathroom countertop. But why are these cords leading down to the floor past the vanity top? Because this bathroom was designed to accommodate all of those hair appliances!

vanity topA narrow bathroom caddy is tucked away between the bath vanity and the wall and the granite countertop has even been extended to add more counter space to the user at the vanity.

tiled_shower_VillageThe tile in this bathroom is bright and classic. New floor tile has been placed throughout and a brand new custom-tiled tub/shower surround has been installed as well. A strip of glass mosaic tile surrounds the new shower and glass corner shelves were installed for shower items. The new Stainless Steel shower head includes a removable handheld wand and multiple spray options.

tiled_showerAn tiled cubby within the shower wall was added to offer another location for shower items and accessories. This keeps clutter from piling up along the edge of the tub/shower base.

Big Changes to a Bathroom in Bettendorf, IA

mirror inserts for cabinet doorsWe recently featured a kitchen here on the blog and over on Houzz and boy did it get popular fast! A small hint was made that the bathroom just off of the kitchen was also remodeled at the same time by Village Home Stores. While photographing the kitchen, I kept hearing giggles coming from the bathroom. Two of the little girls were doing their hair and having a grand old time doing so. As they ran in and out it was hard not to notice the amazing wallpaper within the space. Once I was in the room this paper really made a statement!

Let it be known that I have never been more challenged in photographing a bathroom and avoiding my reflection in the mirrors. This bathroom has a lot of mirrored glass. This might make for hard photos to get but it truly does make the space seem huge! With mirrors one two main walls, the space almost doubles when you are inside.

bathroom cabinet storageAbove you will see the wall that is directly behind the sink user. This custom armoire area has been installed in the nook that used to house a shower. The shower in the old space was not being used and added storage is always a plus for any busy family.

installing vanity light through mirrorThe lighting in this space adds style without distracting from the wallpaper that steals the show. A drum-shaped shade on the vanity 3-light fixture and a semi-flush mount fixture near the armoire area allow plenty of light and complement each other perfectly.

With the new mirror spanning the entire wall, mounting the fixture through the mirror just above the sink anchors the sink space and helps designate a “vanity” area of the wall.  Keeping the mirror one long unit above and changing depths but not heights below keep the room from crowding up.

village homestoresThe vanity sink used to be just a stand alone vanity of the same size. In the new design a “Banjo-shaped” top has been installed to spread the full width of the wall and a change of depth offers open storage for baskets below.

While the room may have been cramped with reflections for my photos, the new design uses the unique room layout  to its fullest.  Beadboard panels installed to the walls and trim keep the room bright. Birch Pearl painted cabinets create  a classic look and the wallpaper gives a personal style touch. The  wallpaper color photographs like a dark brown but it is a bit lighter in person. Just a few steps darker than the neutral taupes and warm grays in the kitchen, this bold pattern paper made the bath magazine perfect!
