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. Village works hard to keep you on track with that vision (and budget).  This great room design concept blends bright painted whites, a Charcoal Blue accent, gray-toned wood floors, and warm rustic woods. Blue and white cabinet kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa home.

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.

The top section of cabinet doors have glass center panels for a clerestory look. Even with every surface from floor to ceiling covered, this range wall still stays feeling open and airy. Venetian Calcutta marble tiles in a subway tile shape fill the backsplash area and extend behind the chimney-style hood on up to the ceiling.

This front-control style range includes true convection features and fits any standard 30″ wide opening for an existing range. “Slide-in” ranges used to require special countertop installations and surroundings. With the new FIT System from Maytag®, this unit will slide right into an existing opening for a custom look without hassle. The look allows your tiled backsplash the full area to be showcased. Five gas burners on top and 5.8 cu. ft. of capacity inside the oven, this range is perfect for any serious cook. A Moline, IL kitchen with Maytag appliances from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Convection features offer up a consistent temperature and with an added third element surrounding the convection fan in this unit, the entire cavity can heat up faster. That means a faster preheat with Power Preheat! Convection is easier to use than you think. Just ask one of our expert sales team members about how it works. We included a full-depth refrigerator in this kitchen design (notice the projection out into the kitchen in image below). A Moline, IL kitchen with Maytag appliances from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores

In this design, there is no demand for a counterdepth model. Instead, a full 27 cu. ft. french door refrigerator is installed. Maytag®’s fingerprint resistant stainless steel keeps this entire appliance package looking brand new everyday. Press play below to take a closer look around this kitchen:

Such a beautiful space. The second wall of cabinetry includes the kitchen sink, dishwasher, and a window.

Tile transitions and installation designs can be just as much or a decision as selecting the material. Our surface experts work with your kitchen designer to give you the best application of your selections for the best end result. The range wall in this kitchen is between two walls making it easy for tile to end. The sink wall required what is called a “Schluter® strip” (shown below).A Moline, IL kitchen with Venetian Calcutta subway tiles and schluter end strip from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

This metal channel allows a clean edge for the tile and grout to end at. Available in many sizes and finishes, this element is available to be bid for all of our installed jobs as well as for our DIY and cash-and-carry customers. The kitchen island in this design has cabinetry facing the range wall and an overhanging area along the back for counter-height seating. A Moline, IL kitchen with painted gray cabinets from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

The back side has been fit with wainscot panels and two wooden legs on the ends give the island a furniture look. Outlets are tucked up beneath the overhang area for small appliance hookup when prepping or serving. The inside of the island also has a hidden secret…A Moline, IL kitchen with hidden microwave from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Floor Covering: Discover Your “Fifth Wall”

What do we mean “fifth wall”? Well, many times the flooring for a project is one of the last materials to be selected. Almost as if it is the last layer of a project to be considered. But how do we build a home? From the ground up of course! Floor covering for your project just happens to be the overall canvas that everything else sits upon. This is why Village Home Stores has recently expanded to now make room for a full showroom and added staff to help you select the perfect material for your project.

kitchen flooring quad citiesSelecting the right material for the floor in your home can help an entire project come together. Think of how much time and consideration goes into selecting your new kitchen countertops… a lot right? The flooring in a kitchen will cover much more surface overall than those counters. In most cases, flooring makes up anywhere from 25% -40% of a surface in your kitchen. If you consider a kitchen as part of a “Great Room” then that selection just got even more important.

rustic wood floorsVillage Home Stores doesn’t want to put a lot of stress on you to make that selection. We are here to help you with your project from start to finish and that includes selection. Our expert sales staff can help you choose what is most practical for your space as well as what will give you the best overall look. Having samples right here in our showroom has already been so helpful in these first few months of adding our Floor Covering Department. The entire selection process can now be done here in our store, alongside your design and sales team working with you on your project. Your entire project just got easier.

Considering this “fifth wall” in your space can help add the following to your project:

The opportunity to cover this large plane of surface opens up a lot of possibilities when you are building an entire design with your team here at Village.

We are so happy to introduce to you the many categories of materials you now have access to in our Geneseo showroom:

hardwood floorsEngineered and solid hardwoods in a number of finishes, sizes, textures, and styles. With many brands like Somerset, Mullican, Mannington, Bella Cera, Hallmark, Lockwood, Valuemark Hardwoods, Armstrong you are certain to find the right one for your space.

luxury vinyl tileLuxury Vinyl Tiles are a highly durable surface that can mimic the look of wood or ceramic but with a softer and warmer material. An acrylic-based grout can even be installed to create a true “tiled” appearance. That same grout is non-porous, and very stain resistant (no sealing of the grout) Brands like Metroflor, Armstrong, Mannington, and Tarkett represent the fastest growing segment of the flooring industry.

vinyl flooring GeneseoVinyl Sheet materials from Armstrong including our thickest vinyl sheet available, Cushionstep. Cushionstep is available in many designs and colors. It feels… well, “cushy” when walked on. A very comfortable flooring choice at a great value.

ceramic tile floorsCeramic Tile by Mannington, Paramount Ceramics, Interceramic, Daltile, and Jeffrey Court is available is a very wide variety of styles, colors and textures. Not just found in square shapes anymore, large tiles and plank-shaped styles have quickly become the more popular choices.

tile backsplashFloors are not the only surface you can tile. Tile in the backsplash of a kitchen or installed in bathroom showers can make a huge impact in a design. Let our staff help you select the tile and pattern for installation.

carpetCarpeting  from Dream Weaver, Southwind, Dixie Home, Phenix are available in so many styles and colors the possibilities are endless. Sculptured styles are quickly becoming a popular choice. Dixie Home uses what is called a “tip-shear” effect which uses a combination of loop and cut pile together like shown in the image above showcasing  “depth”.
