Princeton, IL- Kitchen and Bath Remodel in Princeton

Wood cabinetry and durable quartz counters make this Princeton, IL kitchen warm and inviting.

Biscuit Subway Tile with decorative accent areas are a perfect addition to the finished look.Birch Briarwood cabinetry in a remodeled Princeton, IL kitchen. | VillageHomStores.com

We did a lot of remodel work in the home including bathroom remodels (more on that later) and new flooring in many rooms. This kitchen has come long way from the original in this Princeton, IL home. It now has an upgraded layout and materials. Take a look at this before photo:

Cabinetry upgrades that include storage solutions can be the very best way to treat yourself when you are remodeling a kitchen. In a remodel situation you know your space is limited and you have had a chance to use and experience the needs for what you hope to have in a new kitchen. Smart storage is the very best storage any kitchen can offer. Take a look at this convenient knife block cabinet we included by the prep and cooking zone. Koch cabinetry in a remodeled Princeton, IL kitchen with pullout knife block. | VillageHomeStores.com

Our designers will work closely with you to help establish a wishlist of items and find cabinet solutions that may be the perfect investment for your everyday use. Other great pullout storage cabinets are spice cabinets near the cooking zone. This cabinet shown is plenty wide so that spices and cooking oils and sprays can also fit within.  Pullout spice rack cabinet in a Princeton, IL kitchen.

Across the kitchen is a tall pantry cabinet with a center shelf section for a microwave. To the left is a section of counter space above the dishwasher. This kitchen design includes a peninsula instead of an island. This allows a section of base cabinets and tops to extend out from the wall. The original kitchen had a bar-height section raised up and this new updated layout keeps the space open with just one single level. Birch Briarwood cabinetry in a remodeled Princeton, IL kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

At the inside corner of this peninsula is the new kitchen sink. New Engineered Quartz counters in the “Chakra Beige” color look great with an undermounted kitchen sink. Now this new peninsula is one large surface with an overhang for seating. 

Another section of cabinet storage and countertop surface has been included near the kitchen table. This location makes a perfect morning station with space for the coffeepot and toaster. Birch wood is a wonderful choice for any traditional style kitchen space. The grain is very clean and smooth and many stains take to it in a way that compliments existing furniture and wood trim. The added accent glaze on the cabinet doors in this kitchen looks great with all of the oil rubbed bronze hardware and lighting.

We carry a variety of product categories at Village Home Stores to help make the entire remodel process easier to shop for. One of these product categories is wall switches and outlets. Our lighting team can help you and your tile salesperson find the perfect style and finish for these wall items that fits within your project budget and design concept. Shown below is our Legrand Radiant switch series in “Almond” color. This finish looks great against the off-white subway tile selected. Lighting and switches by Village Home Stores.

We removed a tub shower unit and replaced it with a glass-door shower. The rain glass used for the door adds style and some privacy. Custom tile shower in a remodeled Princeton, IL home.

Tiled showers continue to be at the very top of all of our client wishlists for bathroom designs. This one includes oil rubbed bronze fixtures and a row of accent tile on all three walls. A custom shelf/niche was tiled into the main showerhead wall.Custom tile shower with grab bar in a remodeled Princeton, IL home.

A tiled floor with a center drain is tiled in a medium colored tile that picks upon the accent tile and veining in the main wall tile. A corner ledge/seat has been installed. This can be used for more toiletries storage or as a seat or leg rest while shaving. Custom tile shower in a remodeled Princeton, IL home.

Quartz counters were installed in two bathrooms in the home. This 17″ x 14″ undermount vanity sink is from Elkay and adds so much style an texture to the Powder Room.

Moline, IL- Kitchen Remodel Fully Managed From Start to Finish

This Moline, IL kitchen is a tale that we are sure many can relate to. The original kitchen cabinets were in a very functional layout but beginning to show the wear and tear of years of use. After years and years of “maybe someday I’ll replace them”… this Spring “someday” had finally come. beforeNow the kitchen is updated with new cabinetry plus we removed an entire wall to make room for an island in the new design. The original kitchen shared the same L-shaped layout but the opposite end had a corner of walls with just enough room for a small table and two chairs. Kitchen remodel in Moline, IL managed from start to finish. | VillageHomeStores.com

Now with one of those back walls removed, the kitchen is open and bright. Birch wood Cabinetry from our Koch classic line has been installed in the “Westbrook” door style. A “Chestnut” stain has been applied and a “Black” accent glaze highlights the door and trim details. Engineered Quartz countertops in the “Chakra Beige” design is a neutral tone-on-tone look.

This crown is the perfect style and scale for the project. It even includes an area for the accent glaze to catch. With plenty of cabinet space within reach on each wall, an area above the cabinets is left to display items.

A white Whirlpool® range and microwave hood are also part of the new kitchen. Microwave hoods can save counterspace and be installed to vent out of the home or re-circulate the air. The original kitchen had just a range hood installed, now the microwave is off the counter.

The new electric range includes an easy-wipe ceramic glass cooktop. The most dramatic difference in the new kitchen came when we removed a wall that divided the kitchen from the dining room. Removing this one wall has helps this kitchen seem to grow in space even though it hasn’t extended any further into the dining room than before. The small table and chairs is now replaced with a large single-level kitchen island with seating for two comfortably.

With open shelves installed on each end of the island, the largest base cabinet included faces in toward the kitchen sink. Behind the double doors of this cabinet are two slide-out shelves. The “ends” to each open shelf cabinets have been treated with “applied doors” on each side. This gives the illusion of doors and helps complete the look instead of just a smooth panel. The back of the island includes three applied doors and two wood decorative supports for the overhang.

The island is really the focal point of this new kitchen and the accent glaze highlights all of the details perfectly. While the island steal the show in the kitchen, the new hardwood Walnut flooring is now showcased through the entire upper level of this home. The Walnut hardwood in the “Saddle” finish is from our Hallmark Hardwood line. Read more about Hallmark and some of our other projects here at this link.

Flooring and remodel work in Moline, IL | VillageHomeStores.comThe hardwood flooring was not the only new flooring installed at this remodeled home. The split-foyer layout was given a whole new look right at the stairway leading up into the new hardwood open-concept. A new stair rail and banister were installed and carpeting from our Dixie Home line was put in on both sets of stairs. This carpet is from the “Rock Creek” series in the “Ginger color. It is a 100% Stainmaster® carpet that resists stains, abrasive wear over time, and even has anti-static protection. That means you reduce your chances of static shock. This textured carpet also includes Dixie Home’s texture retention technology meaning your texture/pattern will bounce back and keep it’s hold for a long time. Village Home Stores sells carpeting to both remodel and New Construction customers. So if you need a single room of carpet or a whole home, we have quality products and quality installation crews ready for the job! Village Home Stores is your expert choice of carpeting in the extended Quad Cities region. That is why our projects always include the following:Carpeting in the Quad Cities. | VillageHomeStores.com

This homeowner knew that she wanted to be sure to include our LED undercabinet lighting in her new kitchen. She had seen this system in our previous projects and on our TV show so it was at the top of her wish list for the new kitchen. That lighting was a great investment to help showcase her new subway tile backsplash in the kitchen. 3″ x 6″ glass tiles from our Jeffrey Court line in the “Buff” color are the perfect choice and pair perfectly with the countertops selected. We included the finished space in an episode of the Village Home Show. See a full video tour of this finished kitchen remodel by pressing play below.

All of the permanent areas of the kitchen remain neutral in color and the same space cane now be accessorized in a number of ways without making any major changes.
