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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

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. |

Moline, IL- Clear The Table From Your Family Clutter

It is no news that we believe the kitchen is the “hub” of the home. For many busy families that translates to the “hub” of all clutter! Bookbags, luchboxes, mail, schoolwork, the dog leash, the sports equipment… you see where we are headed with this. This Moline family of 5 (plus pets) was ready  for a kitchen remodel. When their designer asked what they really wanted to see with a new layout, their response was this: some way to keep the kitchen table clear. Before we share that solution, let’s start the tour with the familiar kitchen areas. This L-shape sink section includes a very common and functional layout. A range and microwave hood on one end, turn the corner with a base lazy susan cabinet to a sink beneath a window and dishwasher beside it.

The original kitchen layout included a peninsula on this wall extending into the kitchen. The new layout opens up the space by eliminating that peninsula and making room for a large kitchen table. Koch cabinetry in the Seneca doorstyle is installed in a Birch wood and “Mocha” stain. Glass 3″ x 6″ subway-style tiles have been installed in a herringbone design for the kitchen backsplash.A Moline, IL kitchen remodel including Hanstone Quartz and glass subway tile. |

The tile is from our American Olean line in the Color Appeal series and “Plaza Taupe” color. No backsplash was installed with these tops so the glass tile backsplash had more room for a statement with the pattern.The refrigerator wall now includes so much amazing storage!

A tall pantry cabinet fit with sliding shelves and a refrigerator end panel surround the refrigerator for a great look. The section of cabinetry on this same wall creates a great work surface that also serves as a coffee station. The wall cabinetry above is staggered in height and depth to add interest to this wall. Soffits have been removed from this kitchen so that the new cabinetry can reach to the ceiling. To compliment the deeper center cabinet above, the large stack of drawers in the base cabinetry is pulled forward. A Moline, IL kitchen remodel including Hanstone Quartz in the Victorian Sands design. |

This gives the opportunity to add interest and a furniture-style look with an arched toespace on the drawer cabinet. The Quartz kitchen counters mimic the creative shape of these cabinets and follow the in-out-in detail with soft radius corners on this bump-out area.A Moline, IL kitchen remodel including Hanstone Quartz in the Victorian Sands design. |

Hanstone Quartz countertops in the Victorian Sands color are a stunning choice for this Moline, IL home. Victorian Sands is a wonderful blend of neutral colors. It is one of those successful colors over the years in that it works with so many wood tones and pairs with just about any tile or paint selections. A standard “Eased” edge profile  is a classic choice. But what about that whole new area designed to somehow solve the clutter table issue? With the mission to control family clutter in mind, our designer went to work to create a new kitchen layout including a whole new third section of cabinetry across from the original kitchen.

What an amazing brand new custom drop-zone area fit with a bench seat and coathooks! A place for everything and everything in its place…and guess what?! The kitchen table (and even the kitchen countertops) are now all clear! By creating this designated “drop zone” area on the back wall of the kitchen, there is no excuse for anything to end up on the table at all. A bench seat built from functioning drawers is capped with a matching wood top. This offers a stylish surface for seating. Designing the drop zone into 4 sections helps to contain the clutter to each child’s area. Drop zones like this work best when located near the main entrance home for the users (i.e. back garage door entry).

Village Home Show Episode 7 | Bathrooms

On this episode of the Village Home Show we tour two Quad City Area bathrooms. Each Master Bathroom has been remodeled to include beautiful new materials and bright open spaces. Click right here below to watch this full episode and see the entire before & after stories of these bathrooms.

The first bathroom we look at in this episode had a ton of space already. The homeowners were right in knowing that just a few changes could really make the space work even better for them. A warm, neutral selection of materials paired with a traditional style creates a stunning space in this Bettendorf, IA home.Village Home Show Episode 7 | Bathrooms

An arched area that has a custom fit cherry bench seat where an existing jacuzzi tub was removed. A matching wood top gives the homeowners extra storage space and keeps the area open. Above the bench you will note an arched valance that compliments the other arches throughout the home.Village Home Show Episode 7 | Bathrooms

Our carpenters worked with the homeowners to maintain the arch look with a template, so each had the same look. This is a great look and you will notice both bathrooms we feature in this episode have arched areas with a light fixture as a focal point. Another common theme from one bathroom to the next is heated tile flooring and two of the most gorgeous custom tiled showers in the Quad Cities! See the full album of photos from this bathroom over here on our Houzz page.

Village Home Show Episode 7 | BathroomsThe second Master Bath we tour uses cooler colors of materials. This original bathroom had a very large layout with lots of great natural light. The homeowners were looking for ways to make better use of their space. The entire bathroom was demo-ed including the master bedroom attached to the bath.  A beautiful Crystorama chandelier hangs above the tub.

Village Home Show Episode 7 | BathroomsThe shower goes into the same location but there is an addition of a bench seat, custom wall shelf, and new shower head and control system. Mosaic tile accents the new shower and is repeated as a bold statement filling each of the vanity walls.
