White and Mocha New Home Kitchen In Bettendorf Iowa for Applestone Homes

We have seen a lot of two-tone painted kitchen designs lately so how about some wood in the mix? We love the kitchen in this new home built in Bettendorf, Iowa by Applestone Homes. This kitchen design with Koch Cabinetry from Village Home Stores blends bright white paint, “Mocha” wood, and a subtle blue wall tile together for a great finished look. With nods to both New Traditional and Farmhouse styles there are lots of great details throughout this new home. Let’s take a look around.

The finishes in this open concept kitchen are soothing and sophisticated. But once you pick your jaw up off the floor from what it looks like, you get a chance to appreciate how it functions. This open and airy layout with a centered single-level island is ideal for one user or many! Because of the placement of the cooking, cleanup, and available prep zones, you could comfortably have three active users plus someone even doing their homework at the end of the island.

Koch Classic Cabinetry in the Maple “Bristol” door is painted in a “White” finish. Storage is key in an open concept kitchen design like this. You want to have everything accessible… but out of sight when not being used. Cluttered counters and open shelf carts full of pans and utensils can take away from a gorgeous and serene kitchen like this. In the cooking zone we have surrounded the range user with three wide and deep drawer stacks to move into. Here you can keep pots, pans, lids, baking dishes, and even small appliances within reach when needed.

Keeping utilitarian items out of sight when the kitchen isn’t active helps to keep this kitchen clean and serene throughout the day. Many busy households find the need to up their fresh and frozen food capacity. This layout includes space for an all refrigerator on one end of the sink wall and an all freezer unit on the other. This is a restaurant-level feature and can sometimes take away from a kitchen design. This finished kitchen design softens the amount of stainless steel by surrounding the units with wood panels and cabinets above. The view of the Iowa Quad Cities countryside honestly steals the show on this wall. We love the look of this farm sink but even more, we are jealous of anyone who gets to use it and gaze out at the creek.

The image below of our masked intern will give you a little hint as to when we photographed this finished kitchen. The Spring and Summer of 2020 are seasons none of us will forget and they resulted in a lot of changes in our industry and of course the local market for new and existing homes. As we approach the Fall, one thing we can all agree on is every home needs one OR MORE work from home or e-learning setups. This kitchen island can be an excellent temporary workspace. So much great bright daylight (for those zoom or google classroom meetings) and an outlet on the end to plug in your devices.

The kitchen island is finished in a “Mocha” stain from our Koch Classic line. This stain has been applied on the same “Bristol” door in a Rustic Birch wood. The end result is the look of a rich, rustic Cherry wood that blends well with medium wood tones like the flooring and furniture in this home. That same wood tone is repeated in the range hood and the gorgeous stacked crown detail where the walls meet the ceiling. One wall of the kitchen design is home to a bank of tall pantry cabinets. The top sections of the doors as well as the two cabinet doors surrounding the range hood have been fit with antique mirrored glass. This gives you the option to store whatever you would like behind the doors without having to style them as a display.

When you work with a kitchen designer at Village Home Stores we can help you decide not just what cabinets fit in your space, but what available storage you will end up with once everything is installed. We often showcase pullout upgrades and specialty inserts but don’t forget that basic open shelf cabinets can house a lot of items. We have many options to upgrade shelf construction and add sliding shelves in some locations. In some cases, just adding an extra interior shelf may be a great upgrade for a very minimal cost.

As taller ceiling heights remain to be a trend in new homes, the “standard” 30″ tall wall cabinet has become a thing of the past. We can order a variety of wall cabinet heights. Some of the newer industry standards have become 36″ and 42″ tall but we can order any and all heights. Press play below to see a short video tour of this kitchen design:

We also provided cabinetry for the rest of this Bettendorf home. The primary bathroom (shown below) repeated the same Bristol doorstyle but this time in a cooler “Stone” stain on Birch wood. Two sink bases and a centered stack of drawers provide plenty of counter space between the two vanity sinks.

We love the creativity of Applestone Homes. There is always something new and unexpected in every home they build. The lower level bar in this property is no exception. This design only requires 3 cabinets and looks incredible! A back bar with sinkbase and full height door storage plus a front bar with an X design installed on site.

Brightened Up Bettendorf Kitchen Remodel

As you walk through the rooms in your home, do you ever wish a doorway was wider or that a wall could just magically disappear? Giving you that “open concept” you see on all of your favorite HGTV shows? Well we can’t just wiggle our nose and make a wall disappear… but we do know the right reliable crews who can do it safely for you. Plus we can design a complete and finished look for your spaces. This Bettendorf Iowa home was more than just a kitchen remodel story. We widened doorways, removed walls, and gave these homeowners a more open and brighter space.

What a difference material selection can make in a new kitchen. The original kitchen in this home was a small design with an eat-in dining space. Dark wood cabinets and dark countertops boxed in the space with a U-shaped peninsula layout. The new layout removes that peninsula divide and uses the entire kitchen and casual dining space. Bright white painted cabinetry for the main perimeter of the kitchen helps to lighten the entire look and keep the new kitchen feeling bright and spacious.

What a dramatic difference from the original kitchen! We installed a section of taller cabinetry on the opposite end where the casual dining area was. Now it is home to a deep pantry cabinet, a counter-depth french door refrigerator, and built in wall oven and microwave. Keeping all of these deeper, and taller elements together allows the main kitchen “L-shape” to feel more open and spacious for the users near the sink and range wall.

Dura Supreme Cabinetry is painted White with a Pewter Accent Glaze and a decorative cabinet design on the end of the window wall includes glass inserts. A unique circle-shaped mullion door detail (shown below) is added to the top section of the doors and an open wine shelf is found on the bottom. Have limited space but want a customized cabinet layout? Our kitchen design team can make the most of your space with usable and stylish storage solutions that fit your space and budget.

Keeping the kitchen light and bright is a marble-look engineered quartz countertop selection from our Cambria Quartz collection. The stunning Skara Brae design gives the classic look of a marbled pattern with wide veins of warm grays. As a contrast to all of the white, a rich dark wood floor from our Bella Cera line has been installed throughout the new main floor of this home.

A Hickory Monte Viso floor in varied widths is now installed in the front entry, formal dining room, new kitchen, hallway, the living room, and hearth room. One key to a successful multi-room remodel is to try and keep a consistent flooring surface that marries all the spaces together. We also added custom window shades to all of the rooms we worked in. Our best-selling Transitions shades may seem like a modern style, but they look right at home in any space! This gorgeous traditionally-styled kitchen is a great example of that.

This style of shade allows you such versatile options for privacy and light. You can set them at any position that works for you with full or partial overlaps. Ask about the many colors, sizes, and options for these shades. We even offer cordless features like voice, and remote-controlled shades. Press play below to see the shades in this home in action.

See our Transitions shades in action! Ask us about cordless, voice, and remote control options for these shades.

The decorative valance above the kitchen sink is complimented by the wood hood and decorative mantle details above the cooking zone of the new design. Don’t want a metal hood as a part of your dream kitchen? You are not alone! We design many spaces using a wood hood cabinet with a blower insert installed within it. This allows the wall cabinet design to include the decorative hood instead of be disrupted by it. Want to see more examples of hood designs? Check out this board on our Pinterest page.

You have many options for how we can style this wood hood cabinet. In this kitchen we included beautiful carved wood corbels and a detailed shelf above the valance. These selections look even better with the Pewter accent glaze applied to help enhance all of the details. Including a shallow shelf like this above the cooktop provides a ledge for home accessories as well. Imagine this hood with a small sign or artwork leaning, or even a wreath or garland during the holidays.

The tile wall surfaces in this kitchen take the warm taupes and gray tones from the quartz counters and applies a glossy texture to the wall. A classic 3″ x 6″ subway tile shape is the man backsplash tile. This “Pardo” tile is from our Jeffrey Court line and the accent space above the cooktop is a Glazzio starburst series mosaic named “Kepplers Dusk”.

Of course the true star of a cooking zone is the range itself and this KitchenAid gas front-control range is a dream! A standard 30″ wide range with the look and features of a commercial model including convection and 5 burners on the cooktop.

The best place to showcase the Skara Brae Cambria tops is the kitchen island top. The warm gray veining looks almost like rivers flowing through the piece. Cambria quartz adds drama to the look of your kitchen but no drama as far as upkeep! Engineered quartz is a wonderful surface for your counters. It is nonporous and requires no sealing to keep that quality. This surface is extremely durable and food-safe. That means you can truly get to work in your kitchen and it will clean up just like this when you are finished.

The kitchen island has some added details to it to help create a furniture look. We installed the Cambria with an Ogee Edge Profile which adds a detailed ledge all around the island top. We love how the light hits it and you can see the colors and patterns go throughout the entire slab. Each corner was also shaped to accent the wooden legs below.

To compliment the flooring woodtones, the kitchen island was installed in a Cherry “Java” stain as a contrast to the perimeter cabinetry. We included carved wooden legs at each corner and arched valances as an apron below the overhang. A wooden furniture baseboard molding completes the look. This island design offers a centrally-located work surface and a comfortable space for two to sit.

We widened doorways and also worked in other areas of this main level including the formal dining room, a front living room and this hearth room (shown below) just off of the kitchen. There we added a dry bar area to be used when entertaining guests. During the holidays do you find your own kitchen full of people? Adding a custom sideboard, dry, or wet bar to an adjacent room like this allows you to keep people out of your kitchen when you entertain.

A glass-front beverage cooler, base cabinet with drawer, wall cabinets, wine storage, and even stemware holders have all been included in this space.

Our best-selling diode LED tape lighting is the perfect enhancement for a bar area like this because you can leave these low-voltage lights on as ambient lighting all of the time. This lighting is not just for the underside of cabinetry either. We use it often inside of our glass-door cabinetry. Check out the new look the fireplace wall received in the hearth room:

Bettendorf Bathroom Remodel With Double Vanity and Pendant Lights

Bathroom remodel with Dura Supreme Cabinetry in Bettendorf, Iowa. | villagehomestores.com

Who remodels bathroom in the Quad Cities Area? We do? But what if you don’t need it fully gutted and rearranged? Still us! Village Home Stores is in the business of helping you make the most out of every room in your home. Many bathroom and kitchen layouts are already very functional designs, they just need a new look. Our expert remodel team is definitely here to help. Updating your home can add to it’s value and appeal. In this Bettendorf home, we gave an oak and brass Master Bath a new classic look. Marble look quartz counters in Quad Cities. | villagehomestores.com

Marble look quartz in the Calacatta Classique color is such a classic and transitional choice. Marble has proven for centuries that it will never go out of style. Quartz counters in a bathroom are an ideal choice. Here you get the look of marble, but no worries if anything spills or leaks onto the tops. Quartz is also heat resistant so hair appliances won’t scorch or melt the surface if they come in contact with it. The shower area also received an updated look:Who remodels bathroom in the Quad Cities? We do! Bathroom remodel with new shower entry in Bettendorf, Iowa. Remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

What a difference a new shower door system can make! From heavy, brass framework, to a more open and airy look, the new shower area seems larger without changing in size at all. And now for the main event: the double vanity area. Any Master Bath with two users can always plead it’s case for having two vanity sinks. But this bathroom has us convinced that the pendant lighting trend in bathrooms is also a great choice! We love the use of two framed mirrors and a light above each bowl area.

Vanity cabinetry from our Dura Supreme line in the “Kendall” door and painted “Latte” finish creates a soothing neutral color choice. Latte may be a beige paint at first glance, but when browsing finish selections it really falls within the warm white/taupe category. Selecting a lighter neutral paint cabinet to pair with a marble look top can be a great way to keep a space seem smaller. There are still so many varieties of colors in the veining of a marble top, and of course flooring to tie into the overall look. You don’t need a dark paint or stain for a rich look. Kichler Downtown series pendants in a Quad Cities Bathroom Remodeled by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

This bathroom feature also brought a fun detail to our attention. How versatile the Downtown Series of lighting by Kichler is! These same pendants hang in our showroom above a kitchen island display. We have installed them at countless projects used as everything from a single foyer light, to kitchen lighting, and now in a bathroom space. The same light. In the same scale and size. Used in many varieties of styled spaces. Now that is the very definition of Transitional Style. See the same lights here in a past blog feature of a kitchen remodel in a historic home.

A Quad Cities Kitchen Remodeled Start to Finish

One of the best things about being in our industry is that every single project we work on is different from the next. Even when kitchen and bath trends are put into action, the applications are always different because no space is the same. Village Home Stores has the great privilege of placing our designs and products in new and existing homes in the extended Quad Cities Region and we love each project we complete. We normally don’t admit it when we have favorites… but this week’s featured remodel story in Bettendorf, Iowa is one of our favorites fromf the year for sure! Two tone kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with large kitchen island, waterfall Cambria counters, Black Stainless appliances, and a custom walnut wood top table. | villagehomestores.com

This Bettendorf, Iowa customer found Village Home Stores by catching our weekly television show that airs every Sunday at 9am on WQAD. On the Village Home Show we are able to showcase remodel stories from right here in the Quad Cities area. So when this family was ready, they knew who to call. The original oak cabinetry layout really divided the kitchen from the dining and living spaces. There is a beautiful outside pool area just steps away from the kitchen in this home. With the peninsula in place, it was a long voyage to the kitchen sink from the pool.

We were so thrilled with the ideas they came to us with for a more open concept kitchen. When we say that the kitchen is the hub of the home, this household is a great example of that. With access to lofted living room and the backyard pool retreat, this new kitchen design needed to be functional and stylish. We began by removing the original kitchen… but kept one main element in place to help save some cost to the clients.Need a kitchen remodeler that can manage your project from start to finish? Contact the Quad Cities kitchen experts at Village Home Stores.

This kitchen has been given a whole new look but we kept the original tile floors! That’s right! Because the tile flooring was installed before the original kitchen cabinets went in, there was no void left when we tore out the kitchen peninsula. A new knee-wall was installed with power for island outlets. Take one more look at the original oak kitchen with the peninsula + table layout….Contact the Quad Cities kitchen experts at Village Home Stores.

…and now the kitchen absorbs the dining space into one cohesive look. In fact, the kitchen and dining spaces are now joined into one concept by an incredible and versatile island design. The overall space has been brightened up significantly with lighter, airy material selections, added lighting, and the installation of mirror in some cabinetry. Two tone kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with large kitchen island, waterfall Cambria counters, Black Stainless appliances, and a custom walnut wood top table. | villagehomestores.com

A large kitchen island is the centerpiece to the new open concept. On the end near the backyard access, a custom table has been placed at dining height. We designed the dining table to be placed right next to the kitchen island. However, the table can be moved out if needed. A custom wood base was built for this design by our carpentry team and our painters painted it to compliment the kitchen cabinetry and trim.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with custom farmtable base. | villagehomestores.com

A gorgeous wood top from our Craft-Art line was secured on top of the base. With the main kitchen cabinetry all in painted finishes, a woodgrain was a welcomed element. The Black Walnut plank-style wood top adds warmth and an upscale texture to the space. We think its is best complimented with the warm backslash tile glowing with our undercabinet lighting system. 

Can’t find the right table to match your new kitchen from Village? Let us make one for you to ensure that it lines up with the overall design concept! Finding the right size and finish can be tricky. But rest assured, we can build just about anything you can dream up. This rich, smooth Black Walnut top was given a stylish and classic “Ogee” edge profile. The feel and sheen of these wood tops are truly heirloom quality. Learn more about these wood tops here in a previous postRemodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with CraftArt Black Walnut tabletop in Ogee edge. | villagehomestores.com

Even though this wood top is a showstopper, the Cambria Quartz in this kitchen is not to be ignored. Take a peek at this image below showing the remodel while it was still in progress. Notice that a piece of Cambria was installed on the cooktop wall for a dramatic look. Need a kitchen remodeler that can manage your project from start to finish? Contact the Quad Cities kitchen experts at Village Home Stores.

This statement wall creates a dramatic contrast of a marble look on the wall with a graphic black hood as an eye-catching continuation from the dark base cabinets. In fact, the Cambria Britannica Warm Quartz seems to almost cascade down behind the hood, flow up from the floor, over the kitchen island, and pour back down again on the other side.

Of course a glassy, gloss finish in a bright space always adds a great upscale detail. This Cambria design includes warm gray veining and is a classic compliment to the dark appliances and painted base cabinetry. A new approach to a two tone kitchen, dark painted bases with a bright and airy upper cabinet in a separate finish. Many times this trend is installed with open or floating shelves for the upper cabinetry. But in this design, we wanted to provide as much usable storage as possible.

The use of mirrors in some of the wall cabinetry does add a lighter weight to the look of the upper cabinets. The “X” design in the cabinet door is an updated and more Transitional style detail. We love the way mirrors help to brighten up a room (plus conceal the cabinet interior). Two tone kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with mirrored door cabinets and X-design. Kitchen designed and remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Quartz in a marble look is a great choice for a busy kitchen and large island work surface like this. Cambria Quartz in the Brittanicca Warm design offers a classic look of a marble with a maintenance-free advantage. The island countertop has a standard “Eased” edge applied to it to maintain a cleaner installation and look with the waterfalling edge. Two tone kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with Cambria Brittanicca Warm quartz counters installed with a waterfall design on the island.

Village Home Stores offers many departments all under one roof to make the entire selection process easier on you and your designer. We encourage you to come with any ideas you have collected during your research phase but also take a look around and inside all of our cabinetry displays. We offer so many specialty cabinets and can show them to you. Our Dura Supreme line of cabinetry is loaded with so many great options! This kitchen of includes great sliding shelf storage but also a mixer lift cabinet right in the island.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with Dura Supreme cabinetry in the painted Graphite finish.

See more of this entire kitchen in detail over on our Best of Houzz-winning Portfolio. See the full album of images here. We also installed a spice pullout, lazy susan, and an auto-open waste basket! Press play below to watch the waste basket cabinet open with just a nudge.

Matte Black is one of our favorite home trends and this kitchen rocks the trend so well! The soft, rich look of Dura Supreme’s painted “Graphite” finish on the base cabinetry pairs so well with KitchenAid’s Black Stainless Steel finish appliances. Black Stainless is not just for super contemporary spaces. This Transitionally-styled space is proof of that. Plus it is fingerprint resistant! Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with KitchenAid Black Stainless appliances. Kitchen designed and remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

KitchenAid was the first in their industry to launch a Black Stainless Steel finish and the look is sophisticated. But a KitchenAid kitchen is at it’s best when in use! A counter-depth French Door refrigerator includes incredible fresh and frozen food storage. A 30″ Combination Wall Oven and Microwave has so many features and a large capacity when needed. Another great appliance detail in this kitchen is the undercounter 15″  Ice Maker. What an absolute dream for anyone who entertains! Of course when you have a pool… people tend to show up.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with KitchenAid Black Stainless icemaker and custom paneled undercounter beverage cooler. | villagehomestores.com

This 15″ automatic ice maker produces ice that is perfect for every occasion.  It opens to reveal a storage bin that can hold up to 25 pounds of ice. Next to the Ice Maker we installed a beverage cooler with a custom panel to match the cabinetry. This kept the beverage area of the new kitchen looking symmetrical. Panel-ready appliances can be a wonderful custom option. We offer them in many refrigerator and  dishwasher options. We kept the original tile floors in the kitchen but a new tile backsplash was installed. 

3″ x 12″ textured tiles in “New Yorker” series and “Taupe” color. We love how they almost have the appearance of being underwater with their texture and reflection. Our stylish adorne series of switches and outlets from legrand looks great on the tile in a contrasting color and matte finish.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with legrand adorne system of outlets and switches. Kitchen designed and remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

The square design of this series looks great and is very versitile with options. Since sart home tech is at the top of every homeowner and homebuyer’s wishlist we should also mention this kitchen lighting system takes voice commands! Using the legrand app and connected to an amazon Alexa, we had a lot of fun testing out this new product. Press play below to watch a Facebook live video we taped at this completed jobsite to see how easy it is to use voice commands with this adorne system.

Smart home tech has reached the kitchen industry in a big way over the last few years and this year even more products are set to launch to make your life easier and more enjoyable. This homeowner was able to connect many of the lighting switches in the home and now can even switch lights off and on when they are away from home using the app.Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with legrand connected lighting system.

We have completed many new spaces using the adorne series from legrand. These outlet covers are a perfect match to the painted Graphite cabinetry in this kitchen. They match so well  that our “hidden” pop-up outlet in the island is totally camouflaged when it isn’t in use. Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with legrand adorne pop-out outlet.

Kerkhoff Homes- An Award-Winning Parade Home Kitchen

Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops. Kitchen design and materials by Village Home Stores for Kerkhoff Homes in the Quad Cities.

Congratulations to Kerkhoff Homes for winning one of the awards (2018 Best Home in the $639,000-$665,000 price range category) during the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Fall Parade of Homes! We were thrilled to have our design and products throughout TWO of the Kerkhoff homes this parade season so we wanted to feature one this week on the blog. The kitchen in this home is stunning. An open layout, a custom range hood, and so many great finish selections. Take a look! White perimeter and accent gray island kitchen design in Bettendorf, Iowa. Home staged by Elements Design.

Great Room kitchen layouts should always be open and inviting. By selecting the right surfaces and materials, you also can make a space feel spacious and airy like this kitchen. The kitchen layout in this Bettendorf home is an L-shape perimeter with a large single level island. The cabinetry is the Prairie door in a painted “Ivory” finish from our Koch Classic line.Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops.

The kitchen island has an overhang extending off the back for added counter-height seating. There is also a casual dining space adjacent to the kitchen. The star of this kitchen is most certainly the custom hood we created with this builder. A wood hood was built to match the cabinetry of the kitchen perimeter with a Broan blower insert housed within it. Faux metallic detail on a custom wood range hood.

But we didn’t just build a custom wood hood… we took it one step further. A local artist added a faux metallic finish to the lower lip and top rail of the hood giving the illusion of an old metal hood. Even seeing the paint detail up close you will be fooled into thinking it is the real deal!Metallic faux finish detail in a kitchen by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Below the feature hood is a gas range ready to be put to any task! This front-control gas range has five burners on top and convection features in the oven. Flawless cooking results thanks to Even-Heat™ True Convection; the unique bow-tie design and convection fan in the back of the unit ensure the inside of the entire oven is heated to, and stays at, the perfect temperature. This range also features a Steam Rack that offers the ability to add additional moisture to the inside of the oven, enhancing cooking results.

The French Door refrigerator is the focal point of the other wall of the kitchen. 20 cubic foot of storage capacity and a counter-depth design make it functional in many ways. The ExtendFresh™ Temperature Management System and Produce Preserver help keep food fresh. LED lighting throughout the refrigerator makes food easy to find on every level.KitchenAid Stainless Steel appliances in a Bettendorf, Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

“But there is no water and ice in the fridge” you say? Yes there is! The filtered water dispenser is hidden on the interior of the counterdepth model and an icemaker is in the lower freezer. The kitchen itself includes plenty of storage space within the kitchen cabinets, plus there is a walk-in pantry on the range wall. Cabinet storage and fresh food storage are the main tasks for this section of the kitchen L-shape. As well as a lengthy section of countertop surface for food prep, service, and loading and unloading the refrigerator. Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops. | villagehomestores.com

A Sharp microwave drawer is also found on this wall of the kitchen. Kitchen microwave drawers are past the “occasional” spotting and have entered into the “expected” category in our area. They are a great look AND functional solution to the microwave needs in busy kitchens. 

Any busy kitchen will need a high-performance dishwasher and this KitchenAid one is ready to be put to work! This one is quiet at just 46 d.b.a (normal conversation levels are around 50), and the ProWash cycle is ready for even the toughest loads. Shop our entire catalog of appliances here on our website. The dishwasher is located on the end of the kitchen island next to the kitchen sink. KitchenAid Stainless Steel dishwasher in a Bettendorf, Iowa home. | villagehomestores.com

The kitchen island is also from our Koch Classic line of cabinetry in the same Prairie door. A Hickory wood has been stained with a warm gray stain named “Stone”. A sinkbase, pull out trash basket, and stack of drawers complete the island cabinet configuration. 

Keeping with bright and light finishes, a glossy engineered quartz countertop was installed. Our Q-Quartz line in the color named “Calacatta Laza” is a classic and sophisticated choice. Bright whites blend with ivory and neutral beige veining. A glossy finish is reflective and beautiful. Once installed, quartz has little to no maintenance (yes you still have to wipe it clean). Quartz is also non-porous and foodsafe making it an ideal kitchen surface.

Above the kitchen island hang two glass pendant lights. A great way to give a space a more airy and light look is to use glass or mirror. These pendants from our Feiss Lighting line are named “Zola” and they anchor the island scale and shape but don’t weigh down the space with a dark finish. Instead, you can see through them to that great custom hood design! Shop our lighting catalogs here on our websiteGlass pendant lighting hangs above a kitchen island in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.
