Tim Dolan Development- Spring Parade Home 2017

This Spring we have the great pleasure to have our designs and products included in a number of homes included in the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Association Spring Parade of Homes. This home built by Tim Dolan Development includes all cabinetry, counters, appliances, lighting, and floorcovering from our store. Just in case you can’t make it to the parade, we wanted to take the opportunity to show you around this beautiful kitchen design.

Painted white cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been installed in the “Savannah” doorstyle along the kitchen perimeter. Gray “Stone” stained Birch cabinets in the same doorstyle create a unique island design. The L-shape of the layout includes a focal wall with a gas cooktop from KitchenAid® and a decorative wood hood above.

Surrounding the gas cooktop area is a stunning hood design including carved brackets, glass-door cabinets and a section of cabinets that extend all the way down to the counters. These two narrow cabinets that frame in the cooktop area are actually pullout spice racks:

Pullout cabinetry can be used in a number of locations and for a number of tasks. Consider a deeper pullout option as a base cabinet. Bathroom vanity areas can also be wonderful locations for pullout storage for cosmetics or hair appliances. Press play below to see these pullout spice racks transform from accessibly and convenient to completely concealed

The 30″ gas cooktop by KitchenAid® is a 5-burner layout with full-width cast iron grates. The tile backsplash throughout the kitchen is a stylish elongated tile with texture. The tile is from the Artigiano series in the “Venice Statue” color. This backsplash tile is a perfect compliment to the gray quartz counters.

A 30″ wide combination microwave and wall oven is built-in to this wall of the kitchen design. This versatile appliance by KitchenAid® allows the use of the microwave cavity to be used as a secondary oven when needed. A French Door counter-depth refrigerator is a stunning investment in this appliance package.

This new model by KitchenAid® includes features like a Platinum interior and Panoramic LED interior lighting. The Preserva® foodcare system provides the very best in food preservation so your fresh foods stay that way longer. Metal and wood accents help to make this refrigerator really gorgeous! Gorgeous? You better believe it! This refrigerator looks incredible in the new kitchen…but open up the doors and the real showcase begins!

Other features include KitchenAid®’s PrintSheild™ finish to help resist smudges and fingerprinting and a 3-tier self-closing freezer drawer. There are so many incredible other features that you just have to see in person to experience. One of our favorites is a small removable prep zone tray that can be used for all kinds of prep including marinating meats or taken directly from the refrigerator to the oven.

A large, single-level island sits at the very center of the kitchen design. The quartz counters on the island and perimeter are a color named “Fossil Gray”. The island includes an undermounted sink with dishwasher within reach. There are outlets on each end of the kitchen island.

Stained panels and trim have been applied to the back of the island and two newel posts have been includes as “legs” for the island. These legs and contrasting finish to the kitchen perimeter help to give the kitchen island a furniture look. A wide plank of trim spreads from leg-to-leg as an apron to help give the island a more solid look.

All of this rests atop a stunning engineered Hickory floor from our Hallmark Floors line. Varied widths of 4″,6″,and 8″ from Hallmark’s Monterey Collection in the “Gaucho” color. These Hickory floors are installed throughout the Great Room, down the hall, and as the stair landing. The lighting for this kitchen is a great example of scale and style. The Kichler “Larkin” is a 3-light pendant and the traditional lantern shape is updated with a modern finish and exposed bulbs without glass.

One pendant hangs in the Dinette. Instead of selecting a complimenting island light, the same light is used. This helps create a great rhythm to the finished design. The scale of two pendants above this island is perfect and these fixtures can be looked at or through to help showcase the overall space.

Heartland Builders- A New Home With Contemporary Details

Village Home Stores has the great privilege to design so many incredible kitchens in a year. Lifestyle magazines, the internet, and apps like Pinterest and Houzz have revolutionized how our customers are able to narrow down their own personal styles. Because these platforms can showcase that every project can be different from the next, our own clients are beginning to embrace a very important revelation in 2017: you don’t have to do whatever your neighbor is doing. It is your home, make it reflect you! Even in the category of New Construction homes we still can say that every single home is different from the next. Take for example, this new Colona, IL home completed by Heartland Builders:
Contemporary style kitchen in a home by Heartland Builders including black painted Koch cabinets and quartz counters. | VillageHomeStores.com

We have shared countless white painted kitchens here on the blog but this space is a refreshing contrast. Black painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been installed in the full-overlay “Savannah” door. An L-shaped layout is met in the corner with a pantry and a bat-wing shaped kitchen island angles in towards the kitchen. Seating for 4 surrounds the kitchen island.

The kitchen sink is in the very center of the island and a bar-height top blocks view into the sink from the Living Room area. Quartz tops in the “Fossil Grey” color are installed in a standard Eased edge profile. This new Maytag® french door refrigerator includes the easy-to-clean, Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel finish. The refrigerator caps the end of the kitchen area and in a small niche for the Great Room a bar area has been installed.
Bar area in kitchen including Danby glass-front beverage cooler. | VillageHomeStores.com

This space is stylish and convenient when entertaining. A glass-front beverage cooler from our Danby® line frees up space in the main refrigerator and allows hosts and guest easy access to beverages. Our Diode LED undercabinet lighting perfectly illuminates the American Olean “Appeal” glass mosaic backsplash.  This bar area has been tiled completely in the “Transcendent” mosaic. As mentioned before, the appliance package in this new home is by Maytag®.  Maytag is dependable and has the warranty to back that statement up! Each of the new Maytag® appliances in this space comes with a 10 year limited parts warranty on the main components of the unit. Stop by or call our expert appliance team at (309) 944-1344 to learn more about this warranty exclusive to Maytag®.

The appliances include the french door refrigerator, top-control dishwasher, microwave hood, and convection gas range. Each with their own 10 year limited parts warranty and in the Fingerprint Resistant Stainless finish. We love the look of the commercial-style hardware on the handles and knobs in this sleek space.

This kitchen has been installed within a great room that includes a living room area and dining space. The same Luxury Vinyl Tile has been installed throughout the foyer, great room, kitchen, pantry, dinette, hall, mud room, and laundry. This LVT is the “Meridain” series from our Adura click-together line in the “Steel” color. The perfect neutral sleek and stylish platform for this Contemporary styled space.

The lighting selections for this home are fantastic and each can stand alone as a very unique art piece! Four elongated LED pendants hang above the kitchen island. These pendants from our Kuzco line are in the Satin Nickel finish. Sometimes a big design impact can be made with a low-profile item. These long, narrow fixtures are a great example. They almost create columns to the island but are easy to see past and around in the open space.

A 4-light chandelier hangs in the dinette area. This light is named “Coddington” and is from our Feiss line. Talk about sculptural! We are reminded of the balance and shapes of an Alexander Calder mobile when seeing this light.

In the great room space a large 60″ ceiling fan is stunning! This fan is named “Proxima” and is from our Quorum line. The Satin Nickel finish is a perfect choice in this completed space. When turned on, it provides a lot of air flow and when the fan is turned off, it has an almost sculptural look.

That corner pantry may look large enough, but open the doors and you will find that this is just a pantry front. This cabinet walk-through pantry front leads to a large walk-in pantry area. There is plenty of style AND storage in this space. New homes like this tend to have an “Open Concept” to the spaces but you need to plan for including plenty of storage options concealed from that “open” area. This walk-in pantry if perfect for food storage but also can be great for  other bulk household items.

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.

farm_sinkAnother classic choice is the application of an apron sink. It is almost impossible to imagine this kitchen without an apron-front sink. 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.
Warming drawer | VillageHomeStores.com

Yes you read that correctly. This isn’t just a warming drawer, it is a baking drawer! This range comes armed with the easy to use drawer that allows you to keep warm, slow cook or bake at a different temperature from the oven plus the ability to keep dishes warm. The ability to bake at two temperatures and a total oven capacity of 6.5 cu. ft. This range is ready for your largest of dinner parties. kitchen_painted_white

cooktopThis gas unit from KitchenAid measures 30″ in width and fits any current opening that a freestanding range may leave. The cooktop on the unit boasts a 5-burner layout. 5 burners with a wide range of cooking power from 5,000 to 19,000 BTU’s. Everything from a rolling boil to a delicate simmer is covered. The continuous grates make it easy to slide from burner to burner if needed.

Layout changes and modern upgrades with a nod to the historic roots of this farmhouse, what a beautiful new space!

Edgebrooke Homes- Fall Parade of Homes Feature

Village Home Stores was thrilled to have designs and products in so many of the Parade homes this Fall. This home built by Edgebrooke Homes in Bettendorf, Iowa turned out beautiful! All of the cabinetry, flooring, appliances, and lighting for this home are from Village Home Stores. We love the blend of gray finishes that were selected for the kitchen design. We thank the team at Edgebrooke for their business and for letting us show you around the space. Take a look at how the completed look turned out:
Mixed grays and woodtones in kitchen design by Village for Edgebrooke Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

A light gray painted finish from our Koch Classic line named “Fog” has been applied to the perimeter cabinetry in the “Savannah” doorstyle. The large kitchen island is formed with cabinetry in the “Charleston” doorstyle and the Rustic Cherry island has been finished in the “Driftwood” warm gray stain. The mix of grays is complimented by the rest of the finishes in the space:

Stainless Steel appliances from our KitchenAid line, and an engineered quartz countertop named “Fossil Gray” is installed throughout the kitchen. Mercury Glass pendants from Feiss hang above the island and all of this rests upon gorgeous new engineered wood flooring.

Adding a simple detail to a classic look can really add a lot of interest. This kitchen includes a classic 3″ x 6″ subway tile. By selecting a beveled subway tile in this kitchen, light can bounce around on the surface and this white-on-white look has an added dimension. Instead of ending where the hood begins, the tile is extended behind the new Stainless chimney-style hood up to the ceiling.

At the center of attention on this feature wall is a double oven gas range by KitchenAid. The combined oven capacity is 6.0 cu. ft. of space providing more room to cook multiple dishes at the same time. The bottom oven includes a SatinGlide® Rack that operates smoothly allowing effortless loading and unloading, even with large or heavy dishes.

Across the kitchen is a wall of cabinetry that includes a built-in Sharp microwave drawer unit below the countertop, Microwave drawers work well in an area that have a work surface above them for loading and unloading the unit. To the right is a 29 cu. ft. refrigerator by KitchenAid. This model is packed with innovative storage options and features to help your food stay fresher longer.
Mixed grays and woodtones in kitchen design including White Oak flooring named Barnwood. | VillageHomeStores.com

The engineered wood floors are the perfect variety of color to compliment all of the other finishes in the room. The darker grain and stain on the “Barnwood” finish picks up on the island finish. The Rustic Cherry island is at the center of the design and certainly the center of all attention once you enter the kitchen. When viewed from the Dining area the back of this island has been given a detail treatment with an “X” motif.

This “X”  look and finish suggests a “farmhouse” look but with the overall design and selections, it is a sophisticated modern farmhouse look. With so many open-concept kitchens in a painted white finish, it is so refreshing to see something new and interesting in the mix. the selections and styles throughout are all classic and everything looks right at home with the furniture throughout the main level of this new Bettendorf home.
