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.

Edgebrooke Homes- Kitchen With Blue Island in Bettendorf, Iowa

Blue cabinetry is having more than just a “moment” in the Kitchen and Bath industry! We have installed so many stunning spaces over the past fews years that have introduced a painted blue finish and now it is become such a staple option for Transitional, Scandinavian, and Modern Farmhouse styled spaces. Blue cabinetry is forecasted to remain an accent color for many years to come. Our Koch Classic Cabinetry line makes a neutral blue-gray paint called “Charcoal Blue” and it truly makes a great statement as the island finish in this Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen. Blue and white cabinet kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa home.

This home, built by Edgebrooke Homes, was a QCBR Fall Parade of Homes stop and it is such a wonderful example of how Village can partner with you and your builder to save you time AND money. Shopping our one-stop-shop experience and bundling your purchases is the way to go and it gets you a a more complete design concept! Complete, cohesive designs begin with a vision early on in the design phase.

The main kitchen perimeter is a “White” painted cabinetry in the same “Bristol” doorstyle as the kitchen island. Staggered heights and depths of wall cabinetry can help to add interest to a kitchen design that has tall ceilings. This kitchen also includes two heights for casual dining. A large dinette area at dining height, and a single-level kitchen island extends to add more seating at the island. Blue and white kitchen with dining and kitchen island seating in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The pantry and refrigerator wall of the kitchen actually conceals a hidden feature. The pantry doors open to reveal access to the large walk-in pantry space that turns the corner behind the wall of cabinetry. This same look can be applied in a remodel situation with existing closets or unique spaces. Ask your designer at Village Home Stores how we can include one in your own design. Walk-through pantry front in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Village Home Stores doesn’t want to just know what kitchen spaces inspire you… we want to know what your own dream kitchen looks like. We know it can be difficult for our clients to have a clear vision of what that looks like early on in the design phase. That is why we are here to help. You showing us spaces and ideas that inspire you, helps us build a concept for your own space and tastes.  We have a number of great specialty cabinet options like this pantry front that can take your design to the next level! Press play below to see the pantry doors open up to reveal the hidden room behind them.

The tall pantry cabinet is balanced by the refrigerator surround on the opposite end of this wall. Also included on this wall is a microwave drawer unit. Microwave drawers are a great way to keep the microwave appliance off of the counter and reachable for any users. Another great location for a microwave drawer is in a kitchen island. This section of the featured kitchen creates a great landing space of countertop for loading and unloading the refrigerator and also a work surface for microwave use and food prep. Sharp microwave drawer in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Counter depth refrigerator models can really help you so much when the design demands it for traffic paths and space allowances. In this kitchen, a standard depth unit works perfectly “built-in” against the wall on one side and with a tall, deep panel on the other. A deep cabinet above completes the look. The 36″ wide Whirlpool model fits and offers so much great storage. It also stays looking great with a Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel finish that easily wipes clean. Whirlpool WRF555SDFZ French Door Refrigerator in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

The kitchen island includes the kitchen sink and a Whirlpool dishwasher. This dishwasher is quiet at just 47 decibels (normal conversation is at about 50 dba). A TotalCoverage Spray Arm cleans with twice the jets as usual and an In-Door Silverware Basket frees up rack space by easily fitting on the front of the lower rack or in the door to make room for more dishes. Charcoal Blue painted kitchen island and Whirlpool dishwasher in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The lighting for the great room has a dark, matte bronze metal finish. Clear glass on the Feiss “Baskin” pendants above the island keep the space feeling light and airy. The Sea Gull Ravenwood Manor Chandelier in the dinette area has 5 exposed vintage bulbs. This 5-light fixture adds style and impact to the space. A great look for this casual but upscale space. Kitchen lighting above island and casual dining areas in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

By not including a microwave hood in a kitchen you and your designer at Village Home Stores have many more decorative options for a hood in your kitchen. In this Bettendorf kitchen design we were able to include a decorative wood hood. We fit the hood cabinet with a 390 CFM Broan insert for the range and cooktop area below. Check out the great freestanding double-oven range on this wall. Whirlpool double oven range in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Two oven cavities so you can bake at two seperate temperatures. The gas cooktop includes a 5th center oval burner. This gas cooktop has EZ-2-Lift™ hinged grates to make clean up easy!  Press play below to see these hinged grates in action:

This model is packed with so many great features like Frozen Bake™. Skip preheating the oven for frozen faves like pizza, lasagna, chicken nuggets, fries or pies, thanks to Frozen Bake™ technology. It also bakes with true convection cooking. That helps you cook foods faster by using a third element plus a fan to distribute hot air evenly over, under and around your food. The kitchen is a part of a larger great room space and a gorgeous engineered Oak wood floor ties many of the main-level spaces together. This engineered Oak is from Hallmark Flooring’s Novella series and it is the Fitzgerald color.

That same flooring is installed in the foyer, great room, kitchen, pantry, dinette, powder room and the formal dining room shown above. We love the light fixture selected for the formal dining room.
