White Kitchen With Inset Doors and Shiplap Ceiling in Milan, IL

White painted cabinetry is a consistently classic look for a kitchen. For certain projects however, one added detail can take that look to a new level. That detail is choosing an inset cabinetry construction. The term inset means that the cabinet doors and drawer fronts are recessed back into the cabinet faceframes when closed. This gives a very customized furniture-style look to the cabinetry. This option is available from custom and semi-custom lines of cabinet product at Village Home Stores. This Milan, IL kitchen was given the full remodel treatment and for the vision of this new kitchen in the home, inset door cabinetry by Dura Supreme was the perfect choice.

The original kitchen was walled-off and sectioned into a small sink area and another cooking area The refrigerator was on its own across the way. Our team removed a wall that divided the dining area from the kitchen to open up the room and create a more open concept into the dining and front room of the home. Two windows were replaced with one large window now offering panoramic views to anyone at the kitchen farm sink in its new location. When the flooring was removed, this great pine floor was revealed beneath it. We think keeping the original wood floors was a fantastic choice with this bright, white new setting.

Even though this kitchen may have farmhouse feel, the appliances needed to have modern features while looking at home in the new space. We included a tall pantry cabinet to the left of the refrigerator for a surrounded and customized refrigeration look. A KitchenAid counter depth refrigerator keeps that built-in look locked in tight. Counter depth refrigeration is a modern feature that can really be a miracle worker when kitchen designing in small spaces. Another built-in appliance that is worth noting is the microwave.

The over-the-counter microwave from Sharp allows you to have the off-the-counter convenience of a microwave hood without installing it as your hood. This microwave option gave the client an opportunity to take a more decorative approach to a range hood across the room. We have installed examples of all microwave location options at our showroom in Geneseo, IL. You can shop all of our appliances online, anytime at villagehomestores.com or by stopping in our showroom at 105 S State Geneseo, IL.

We mentioned the floors… but did you see those ceilings? Shiplap style boards were installed and painted to give a completed look from floor to ceiling. Walking into this completed kitchen remodel the wow factor truly is in every single surface! From the storied original pine floors to the statement Shiplap ceiling. A farmhouse apron-front sink and new stainless dishwasher are located on the bright new window wall.

Keeping the kitchen design bright and airy on the sink wall, three floating shelves are located above the dishwasher (see image below). We can order shelving like this for any space. We are seeing a long-term trend for kitchens, bathrooms, home bars, and built-in fireplace shelving to have a more open look like this. We see the potential for styling these open shelf spaces year round but love this everyday simple look of glassware in a pop of color.

A 30″ slide in gas range by KitchenAid is the superstar appliance in this kitchen. The help of convection cooking produces flawless results for you. The convection fan ensures the inside of the entire oven is heated to (and stays at) the perfect consistent temperature. Plus the oven cavity cleans in less than an hour without odors at a low heat using water to release baked-on spills!

A steam rack on the interior offers the ability to provide additional moisture to the inside of the oven, enhancing cooking results. Speaking of results, there is even a wireless probe that lets cooks walk away from the oven without walking away from control. The probe can easily be set to specific temperatures, and alerts you when the desired temperature has been reached. There is also a baking drawer beneath the oven. The separate compartment allows you to keep warm, slow cook or bake at a different temperature and keep dishes warm. That’s like having a second oven!

Beautiful Arabescato Marble countertops were installed throughout this kitchen. Glazzio’sCrystile “Ice Mist” glossy glass subway tiles in a 3″ x 6″ size introduces a seaglass color and adds a coastal layer to the kitchen finishes. Clean and bright wall switches and outlets from our Legrand Radiant series look amazing. Many times our tile customers are curious what to do at the “end” of a run of wall tile. We use a channeled product called a Schluter Strip (shown below on right) to give a cleaner, completed look.

Dura Supreme cabinetry in the Homestead non-beaded doorstyle painted white is paired with bright surface selections to give this home the spacious and stylish kitchen it deserves. The symmetry of the new range wall is perfection.

We installed our energy efficient Diode LED lighting as undercabinet and in-cabinet lighting for this project. The clerestory style of a glass-door top section is styled and illuminated perfectly. This lighting system is low-voltage so you can leave it on anytime with minimal power use. A stainless hood would be a bit modern for this kitchen. So the design includes paneled a wood hood cabinet with blower insert in the space.

A mantle and decorative corbels create a shallow ledge area that can be left clean (as shown) or be home to a wreath, accessories, or leaning artwork if you see fit. There is such a gallery effect when you have a bright white kitchen like this. You can style it differently year round and let your accessories truly pop against the white paint.

Any remodel or new build project comes with hundreds of decisions to be made. Our store will build you a team of experts from each department that you are shopping so we can walk you through your choices and help you decide what is the best choice for your project and your budget. When choosing inset cabinetry you have the option of a concealed or exposed hinge for your doors. This kitchen showcases an exposed barrel hinge in a brushed nickel finish to compliment the kitchen.

The nickel finish offers a sheen without a very dark contrast. It also compliments the Stainless Steel appliances in the completed kitchen. A great door and drawer hardware choice for inset cabinetry was also made in this design. The Highland Ridge Collection has a latching mechanism to keep doors closed and aligned. This style of hardware works well in modern and farmhouse styles and can be ordered in a variety of finishes. We paired this door hardware with classic cup pulls on the drawers.

McClellan Heights Kitchen Remodel With White Cabinets and Honed Granite

Kitchen remodeled from start to finish in the McClellan Heights district of Davenport, IA by Village Home Stores.

There are so many incredible homes and unique neighborhoods in the Quad Cities area. Such a storied history down each road. The McClellan Heights district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, at which time it included 354 buildings that were decided to contribute to the historic character of the area. Not just limited to the Village of East Davenport, this area technically stretches from Jersey Ridge road to the Bettendorf City Limits and from River Drive to Middle Road. There is such a history to the area dating back to the American Civil War. We are so blessed to get to be a part of many of the kitchen and bathroom restorations of these important properties in our community. The homes are unique and eclectic in period styles and details and many even boast views of the Mississippi River. We were thrilled to renovate the kitchen in one recently and want to show you how it turned out. Take a look!

When renovating historic homes, every material selection and inch of storage space should be considered by an expert. These homes were built with that relentless attention to detail and great craftsmanship. You simply are doing yourself (and your return investment) a disservice for your property if you don’t respect the remodeling projects in your historic home. For this kitchen we chose to install a classic, flat-panel cabinet style in a painted “White” finish. The door is a full-overlay door named “Savannah” from our Koch Classic line. The cabinetry includes full-extension soft-close drawer guides and soft-close doors.

The countertop surfaces for this kitchen give the look of a classic soapstone material. They are actually a Honed Black Pearl Granite in an eased edge profile. While “matte black” finishes are currently on-trend for kitchen and bath projects… they have always been on trend for historic properties! The soft, leathered look of a honed natural stone is a wonderful choice for both style and performance. A 30″ Classico Fireclay farmsink was under-mounted to the island top to complete the look. To keep the kitchen counters clean, and offer a more stylish option for a kitchen hood we tucked the microwave out of sight in the island (see below). These base microwave cabinets can be a great location for larger appliances that can sometimes clutter up a countertop area.

Keeping the kitchen feeling airy and light are the two new Kichler “Everly” pendant lights that hang above the island. The clear glass shape gives an old world look and the dark Oil Rubbed Bronze metal finish marries well with the countertop selection. Our lighting experts at Village Home Stores can help you select a whole home of lighting or that one perfect fixture for your space. Learn more and shop our lighting selections here online.

Classic, white-painted cabinetry can be a great nod to the past while pairing so well with modern elements like appliances and kitchen accessories. White kitchens like this never go out of style. We choose to install a wood cabinet hood with a blower insert within it. Using a stainless chimney hood here could shift the style of the space into a more modern category. This cabinet hood instead gives the function of a 390 CFM Broan Blower and blends in perfectly with the surrounding cabinetry.

Soho Subway Tile in the classic 3″ x 6″ size is installed in white with a white grout. Our Radiant series of switches and outlets is installs clean with no visible screws. Our bestselling Diode LED undercabinet lighting is installed here on a dimmer switch for ambient low-voltage light and bright, functional task lighting. KitchenAid’s 30″ wide 700 series -burner gas range with convection oven is a powerhouse of a kitchen appliance! Packed with incredible features and versatile cooktop, this range is perfect for home chefs who truly love the cooking process. Shop our Local Low-Priced Guarantee on all appliances here.

Old homes typically don’t have large kitchen or bathroom spaces to work with. Homeowners need to work with an expert kitchen designer to make the most of their space. Of course we packed great storage solutions in the cabinetry anywhere we could. Slide-out shelves, large drawers, a pullout wastebasket and slideout tray divider (shown below).

We even extended the main kitchen into the dinette area by installing a custom bench seat. The bench seat drops down below the windows and turns the corner to provide seating for an antique table. Some of the bench is even functional storage! Drawers (shown below) provide great storage space for seat cushions, placemats, even pantry items if needed.

We love the faucet that the customer selected for their home. The bridged look of the handle controls and faucet gives a great old world feel. A low-key modern detail is the push-button garbage disposal we installed in the kitchen island. This single button (shown below to the right of faucet) adds a low-profile modern amenity for the kitchen user. Bright Polished Chrome accents on the Top Knobs cabinetry hardware and Kohler kitchen faucet are also a nod to the restoration style.

Historic homes and properties are a fantastic location to invest in natural stone countertop surfaces like granite, marble, and quartzite. Surfaces that have a history of their own can be such a wonderful investment for your project. We partner with Epic Stone warehouse and Surface Resource fabrication to get you the very best quality of surfaces and installation/seamwork available in the Iowa and Illinois region. Press play below to take a look behind the scenes at the fabrication process for your granite tops.

Of course every historic home has many stories, and this remodel is now another story for this home. We are just so thrilled to have been trusted to be a part of it. Inviting our team into your home is not something we take lightly.

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. 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!

Bettendorf, IA- Once Upon a Time… Beige Met Gray…

A Classic tale of Gray meets Beige… Ok fine this might not seem like a classic tale but trust us, warm gray tones are everywhere in the home finishes industries. Say goodbye to Beige everywhere and say hello to the new neutral: Gray. Not always bland and cold as stone, Gray tones can be warm and inviting. Someplace between Gray and Beige is… “Greige“! This Bettendorf, IA kitchen showcases the perfect palette for this neutral color concept.
Kitchen remodeled in Bettendorf, IA | VillageHomeStores.com

The original kitchen in this home was a medium stained Oak cabinet with neutral toned countertops. Once ready for an update and a brighter look, this Bettendorf home is now a magazine-cover worthy space. Take a look at the transformation.
before

Painted white cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been given a “Smoke” highlight accent and a wood hood and kitchen island is painted in the “Fog” finish. The “Legacy” doorstyle is a fantastic choice that provides many edges and details that the “Smoke” highlight can catch up on. A decorative wood hood in the accent color is fit with a Broan hood insert within it.
Gray and white kitchen remodel in Bettendorf, IA | VillageHomeStores.com

That same “Fog” painted finish from the hood is found on the kitchen island that includes an overhang and seating for two at counter-height. While you may think next to the kitchen sink is the best location for your pull-out waste basket cabinet, an island can be a better choice. Include this cabinet within reach of the sink user but easy to access for guests when entertaining. A waste basket cabinet in the island can be easy to find and keep the sink area from getting too crowded.
Koch's Fog painted finish. | VillageHomeStores.com

We have to admit that sometimes one element of a complete design stands out as the “MVP”. In this kitchen it is absolutely the tile backsplash! This geometric mosaic tile by Glazzio is from the “Excalibur Series” in the “Winter Fjord” color. It perfectly blends both cabinet finishes, the countertop selection, and the flooring together. Our Diode L.E.D. undercabinet lighting system showcases this tile perfectly and the look is amazing day or night.
Glazzio Excalibur Series tile. | VillageHomeStores.com

Whirlpool front control range. | VillageHomeStores.comBelow the painted hood and that amazing tile backsplash sits Whirlpool’s front-control gas range with True Convection features in Stainless Steel. One of our favorite features on this model aside from the convection is the Frozen Bake™ option. Select this feature to cook frozen foods faster by eliminating the need to preheat the oven. Just select the food type, temperature, and cook time listed on the frozen item’s package and the oven will start customizing. Now you can cook frozen pizza 31% faster, and even lasagna, chicken nuggets, fries and pies can get from the oven to the table in less time. No more preheating before your get started. The preheat process is included in the bake time. Tall storage cabinetry in kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.comYou will find plenty of pantry storage on the refrigerator wall of the new kitchen design. Two tall pantry cabinets surround the refrigerator area and varied depths have been used to utilize the space as much as possible. Notice the change in depths in this profile view below of the pantry wall:sliding shelves in pantry. | VillageHomeStores.com

Plenty of pantry storage plus two slide-out bins in the end base cabinet. Also note the exposed ends of the cabinetry in this kitchen. In place of a smooth, painted finished end matching cabinet doors have been applied for a gorgeous finished look. Including “Applied Door Ends” is an exceptionally nice detail in a kitchen with a mitered and glazed doorstyle like this.  Not to go un-noticed is a gorgeous farmhouse sink in this kitchen. A design selection that is a statement all in itself, this Whitehaus smooth-front apron sink is an instantly classic look. Farm sink in Bettendorf, IA kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

The farm sink has been undermounted to Cambria’s “Torquay” quartz counters in the standard “Eased” edge profile. This Cambria design adds a perfectly polished and upscale look without overpowering the backsplash tile with too much pattern. This entire design is about balance. Balancing accent colors, pattern, texture, even hardware sizes. Having a designer with you during every decision for your project helps you get the end result you have been dreaming of. Vinyl flooring Bettendorf, IA. | VillageHomeStores.com

All of these selections sit on top of a luxury vinyl tile by Armstrong. This 12″ x 24″ LVT is from the “Alterna” series in the “Silver Shimmer” color.

Moline, IL- The Best Remodels Are The Ones You Never Knew Happened

The best remodels are the ones you never knew happened? What on Earth do we mean by this?!? Simply that a kitchen (or any well-designed space) should look naturally “at home” in your home. The fact that it has been remodeled recently shouldn’t necessarily be a dead giveaway.  If that is apparent, you run the risk of it looking “dated” within 5 years or so. This is especially true for historic homes. Making classic choices in materials and application that enhance and compliment your home are always the right choices. A great example of this is a kitchen remodel we recently completed in Moline, IL. This new kitchen looks perfectly at home in the space yet updated with modern touches at the same time. We will confidently be able to say the same thing years down the road. Remodeled Moline, IL kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

A cabinet design using our Koch Classic line is installed in the “Prairie” doorstyle in a painted “White” finish. A single slab-style drawer front has been selected for the drawers. Floating shelves in an Oak wood stained in a “Mocha” finish accent the sink wall.  Neutral gray tone-on tone Engineered Quartz counters break up the space and a dark hardwood floor adds drama to the completed look. farmhouse kitchen ideas | VillageHomeStores.com

beforeThe original kitchen was in this same area of the back of the home. For storage however, only a single wall of cabinetry surrounding the sink was installed. This left an empty wall for the range to rest on and a refrigerator to float on another. Not ideal for a busy family. Also take into consideration ther is no dishwasher in the original layout. put a drying rack on that countertop and now there is even less space available. The new layout converts this single-wall design into an L-shape and adds storage in every inch possible. Added storage and plenty of added counter space that is so important surrounding the cooking center of the new kitchen. With the range wall now included in the cabinetry layout, the sink wall can have a more open look. Instead of a solid block of built-in cabinetry, there are glass-front cabinets and contrasting floating shelves.  The same dark wood finish from the floors is repeated in the oak floating shelves installed to the left of the sink. These floating shelves add a modern detail to the New-Traditional styled space. Painted white kitchen ideas. | VillageHomeStores.comFloating shelves in kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.comThese floating shelves are balanced by the classic glass-front cabinet doors on the opposite side of the sink. The best result from this new cabinet design on the sink wall is how open and uncrowded the user at the sink now feels. Natural light pours in from the window above the sink as well as the others on the back wall of the home. An always classic choice in a kitchen design like this is the use of an apron-front or “farmhouse” sink. This single decision can make such a huge impact of the finished look of the kitchen. This 26″ wide single-well apron sink has been under-mounted to Engineered Quartz counters in the “Fossil Gray” color. A standard “Eased” edge is another classic choice for the project.  A heavy and ornate “Ogee” edge would seem out of place here.

Of course the most effortlessly classic pairing with an apron-front sink is subway tile. This kitchen takes that concept and steps it up a bit with an incredible material detail: an elongated size. Long Subway Tile backsplash in kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

While a classic subway tile may measure 3″ x 6″, these elongated tiles from our American Olean line are 2″ x 8″. The series is named “Urban Canvas” and the color is “Ice White”. This exaggerates the classic look of subway tile and makes a huge impact with the detail. The use of simple and clean lines in the details of your overall design can help spotlight other key areas.  A subtle gray quartz top doesn’t distract from the overall look. By selecting a complimenting gray grout to the quartz counters it helps to showcases the tile shape. dishwasher_with_third_rack

The kitchen appliances selected for this Moline home bring modern conveniences and a high-end look to the space. KitchenAid’s new look gets you professional-level results and appearance.  The new kitchen layout now includes a space for this Stainless Steel dishwasher. A third rack on the interior of this dishwasher makes it easy to clean hard-to-place items such as spatulas, serving utensils and measuring cups, freeing up space in the lower two racks. Speaking of space, the range in this kitchen has a lot of it and it is just a 30″ range! This 30″ Gas convection Slide-In Range  has a great look and a lot of fantastic features including a baking drawer.
