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.

Curious about waterfall edges? Stop by our showroom in Downtown Geneseo and see our front desk area that showcases this look. 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. Connect with the legrand app and even enable voice commands for your controls. | villagehomestores.com

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.

A hands-free waste basket cabinet, voice-controlled lighting, and even a wave-controlled kitchen faucet! There is just so much from this kitchen remodel story it is almost impossible to showcase it all here on the blog. We hope to film an upcoming episode of the Village Home Show to show you more of these great features in action. Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa with a stainless farmsink and Dura Supreme cabinetry in the painted Graphite finish. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villaehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

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. | villagehomestores.com

Alpha, IL – White and Gray Kitchen With Hidden Laundry

We included this kitchen before and after story in an episode of the Village Home Show. See a full video tour of this space by pressing play.

Village Home Stores understands the importance of the home you create for you and your family. Deciding when is the right time to downsize or remodel your home is an important step for any homeowner. Many of our customers that use our Complete Project Management Process are interested in investing in changes to their homes to help them age-at-home more comfortably and happily. There are many remodel changes you can make to a bathroom to help allow you to age at home, but the kitchen is another great location for these investments in your home happiness. Just look at this bright and spacious remodeled kitchen in Alpha, Illinois:
Kitchen remodel in Alpha, IL with painted Dura Supreme cabinetry and Cambria quartz. | villagehomestores.com

This remodel involved building out an addition to the home of about ten feet in depth and twenty feet in length. The original kitchen was small and very limited in counterspace and storage. Squeezing a small table in the kitchen and having the garage entry right in the kitchen, created a busy and crowded room.

We were so thrilled to design a more functional and beautiful space for these sweet customers. Plus we were able to put them at ease with our step-by-step process because Village Home Stores coordinated it all! Estimating, designing, delivery, and installation plus the many subcontractors on site where scheduled by our Project Management team. Our process helps to keep your project on track and on budget. 

The new kitchen is bright, spacious, and super functional! Instead of the original U-shaped layout with peninsula, the new kitchen is an L-shape with a single-level island and a long section of new storage cabinetry across the room. The added space from the home addition helped to transform the small kitchen into a new room that can be used as a kitchen, dining room, drop zone, home office, and even laundry room! Kitchen remodel in Alpha, IL with Linen White and Zinc painted Dura Supreme cabinetry and Cambria quartz. | villagehomestores.com

That’s right! An incredible home office desk area is just across the room from the new kitchen. A wall-mounted TV and banjo-shaped countertop for a seated desk area helps to use every inch of space available. The light fixture you see hanging above indicates where the new casual dining table will be located.

But why TWO tall pantry cabinets for this couple? Well… that’s the laundry room we mentioned! These pantry fronts have been ordered to match the new kitchen but open to reveal a brand new pair of front-load laundry from our Maytag line!

Remodeling to include laundry in a more convenient and accessible area of your home is a fantastic feature anyone at any age or ability can appreciate. Any time you can place laundry in a main level of a home, you create a safer user experience. Plus no bending over or lifting because each unit is installed on top of a raised pedestal for easier loading and unloading. 

(Pardon the cute dog “photobomb” above in the left corner) So much capacity in the laundry pair plus great storage in this hidden laundry area. The pedestals are actually drawers that slide open for detergent storage and even small laundry baskets can fit within. Above the laundry are two deep sections of pantry storage perfect for bulk items. There is even a broom closet cabinet between the laundry and desk area. 

Another age-at-home feature that can be appreciated by users of any age and ability is a raised dishwasher. Who loves to bend down to load an unload a dishwasher? Nobody! Raising it up to a more comfortable height can be a design choice you are thankful for on a daily basis. This KitchenAid dishwasher is super quiet at just 46 dba and even has a third level rack for washing utensils, cutlery, and lids. 

The cabinetry in this kitchen is from our Dura Supreme line in the Full-Overlay Hudson door and painted “Linen White” finish. The center panels of the hood cabinet have been given a beaded panel to compliment the beaded back of the kitchen island. The island cabinetry is painted in a “Zinc” gray finish. Our bestselling Diode LED undercabinet lighting helps to illuminate the new kitchen backsplash and switches and outlets from our stylish Adorne series by legrand. The main tile is a 3×6 subway tile in a brick lay pattern with and accent strip at the center. The fun accent tile is by Florida Tile and is Streamline Ivy series in the Shadow Gray color.
Glass Subway Tile in brick lay pattern with ivy accent tile. | VillageHomeStores.com

There is great storage throughout the new kitchen layout. Below is a photo showing our bestselling corner cabinet option, a lazy susan without center pole. Fixed shelves with rotating susan trays allow sturdy access to the full corner. This client has their pots and pans stored right in reach of the new gas range.

Whirlpool’s front-control gas range is a sleek and functional model. This unit includes convection features and 5.8 cu.ft. of capacity in the oven. The rack systems inside of our ovens have improved so much over the years to help you use the space better. Ask you appliance salesperson at Village Home Stores to show you the inside layout of the range you are shopping with us. You will be surprised at how usable the space can be.

A shelf microwave is placed in a tall cabinet and a wood hood with blower insert is above the new range. Ask your kitchen designer about all of the hood options you have for your new kitchen design. Not everyone has to do a chimney style or microwave hood. We have many options available.  Kitchen remodel in Alpha Illinois with Stainless Steel Appliances from Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

One of our favorite storage cabinets in the new kitchen is a spice rack that can open and be accessed right from the user at the range. Dura Supreme has hundreds of great storage solutions available. If you have a specific item or small appliances that you want to include as a part of your kitchen design just ask! We can help keep you organized and your counters clear of clutter with a well-planned design.

A counter depth refrigerator model is always a great way to keep a kitchen plan open and pathways clear. This french door model from Whirlpool is great with an internal water dispenser and incredible interior shelf storage. We just love how the Stainless Steel finish looks in this bright white and gray kitchen.

A counter-depth refrigerator model, along with the added space from the room addition allowed us to provide generous pathway allowances between the kitchen counters and the new kitchen island. As you can see below, there is about a 45″ distance in this L-shape of pathway within the kitchen. Kitchen remodel with painted Dura Supreme cabinetry and Cambria quartz in the Berwyn design are featured. Materials and remodel project management from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

The countertop edge itself adds an element of style to the new kitchen. An “Ogee” edge profile has been applied to Cambria Quartz in the Berwyn design.  This edge profile is always impressive in person because the light catches the edge as you walk in and around the kitchen. The Ogee edge is a great way to dress up a subtle or neutral colors countertop.  The radius corners and overhang curve of the island top help to soften the look of the space.

There is a wonderful new kitchen island in the new design. Plenty of seating on the back side for two plus great storage facing the inside of the kitchen. Two large drawer stacks with some including an adjustable pegboard dish storage interior. For some, this is a great way to store dishes and bowls. It allows you a more comfortable way to lift up from a drawer and not down from a high wall cabinet. Kitchen remodel with painted Dura Supreme cabinetry and Cambria quartz in the Berwyn design are featured. Peg drawer insert. | VillageHomeStores.com

We also included an outlet on the end of the kitchen island. This makes it easier for small appliance use or even plugging in laptops or chargers if a user is seated at the island. Between the two large drawer stacks is a narrow spice drawer cabinet. These drawers may look cute and decorative to you but they can be very functional! This client had one dedicated to medications and vitamins and another for toys and goodies for the grandkids.

All of these gorgeous new finishes and design changes make life more comfortable for everyone in the home, including these two sweet pups. They love their new Permastone luxury vinyl flooring from our Tarkett line. 6 x 48″ planks in the Tundra finish are perfect for laying in a sunbeam and watching birds and wildlife outside their new sliding glass door.

Geneseo, IL- Dura Supreme Attitude Gray Painted Kitchen

Our Dura Supreme line of cabinetry is always so great to work with because they offer such a wide variety of rich wood finishes but also many painted options. Dura Supreme keeps their thumb on the pulse of kitchen and bath trends and helps to keep on-trend product available at a great price for our customers. Plus they bring you colors that aren’t just named “gray” but instead “Attitude Gray” and for that we love them even more! Check out this “Attitude Gray” painted kitchen in Geneseo, IL that we just remodeled.
Geneseo kitchen remodel with DuraSupreme cabinetry in curated painted Attitude Gray finish. Remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

So many times customers are fearful that if they eliminate wood finished cabinets from a kitchen it wont feel warm. Not the case! Don’t forget that wood flooring surfaces continue to be a great look for kitchens and can really warm up a space.  This Geneseo kitchen has a new Hickory wood floor installed in a “Genoa” stain. Our Diode Undercabinet lighting system also helps to wash the space in a warm light day or night. The original kitchen included cabinetry in a medium wood tone with exposed barrel hinges and laminate countertops. 

We just love this new Curated Color Collection from Dura Supreme! It is a fantastic collection of fresh and current painted finishes (and the finish names are so fun). See the full collection here at this link. We all see color differently and it should come as no surprise that everyone sees this painted finish differently. This “Attitude Gray” paint gives an almost green-gray look to most. And paired with Hickory floors and deco tile selected, The earthy green colors come out even stronger.Geneseo kitchen remodel with DuraSupreme cabinetry in curated painted Attitude Gray finish. Remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

The original kitchen included soffits above the cabinetry and instead of tearing those out, beaded panels and molding have been applied for a custom-wrapped soffit look. This can be a wonderful solution for kitchen designs that want the built in look to the ceiling but don’t need the added storage. Geneseo kitchen remodel with DuraSupreme cabinetry in curated painted Attitude Gray finish. Soffits are wrapped with paneling and trim. Remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Beaded panels cover the main face of the soffits and crown molding and trim cover all the seams. A suite of Stainless Steel Whirlpool appliances is included in this new kitchen. A sleek front-control gas range and microwave hood create a stylish and functional cooking zone in the new kitchen.

This gas range is a great model because it offers what used to be referred to as a “slide-in” look but can be installed in any standard 30″ wide freestanding range opening. Moving all of the controls to the front allows the design of the range to have no back raised apron area. That leaves more space for your wall tile to be shown off! Full-width grates make it easy to slide pots and pans from burner to burner if needed.

An engineered quartz has been selected for the kitchen countertops. “Peppercorn White” Quartz is a great blend of warm white quartz colors in a tight, controlled pattern. From far away it looks solid white, and up close you get a subtle pattern and sparkle.  A great neutral choice.

Quad Cities- Bath Remodel With Custom Locker and Hidden Laundry

Down the hall from this stunning kitchenette we shared recently is a remodeled bathroom packed with storage, function, and style. With a pool out back, this walk-out basement was in need of a large functional bathroom space ready for busy Summertime pool days. The vanity area is gorgeous.

An open shelf below is perfect for stacking extra towels for guests. The furniture look of the Dura Supreme vanity is enhanced by the edge detail on the Cambria counters. Each corner swoops out an adds a details that the light catches. Cambria Quartz in the Torquay design gives the polished look of marble in a durable and non-porous engineered quartz.

With this busy bathroom being so close to the pool, a secondary laundry area was on the wish list. We were able to design an area that hides a stack-able unit right within the bathroom. Hidden pantry front doors aren’t just for pantry areas! And with the Inset door style selected, the doors can roll back with pocket door hardware and allow full access to the laundry.

A custom tiled shower in a bathroom allows you to truly make the most of your space. Plus the look of carrying a tiled floor into a shower helps to make the room seem larger. This look is only made stronger when you pair it with a glass door entry. In this bath we were able to include a full glass wall and even turn the corner with a small section of glass.

12″ x 12″ wall tiles and 3″ x 3″ floor tiles in the shower plus a custom niche for toiletries. Even with a shower this large there was enough space to include a custom cabinet locker area at the bathroom entry. The unit hugs the entire corner all the way to the door. Why stop at the wall switch if you can just include it in the design? We used the clean design and style of our Adorne Series of switches and the look is great. Custom cabinet with outlet on side panel.

An L-shaped bench with beaded panel walls and robe hooks was installed. We stacked crown molding so that the locker bench area stretches all the way to the ceiling. The Chapel Hill doors are inset into the faceframe and the top section of cabinets here are top-hinged. We love the use of frosted glass in the Chestnut Cherry cabinet.

Below the bench is even more storage in drawers. Imagine a busy pool party weekend and each guest getting a section of this locker. A wonderful way to keep the clutter contained. This bathroom space is so beautiful and functional. We love how it turned out.
