Hazelwood Homes- White Painted Kitchen With Glaze and Black Island

Our first featured kitchen of the year is in a brand new home built in Geneseo, IL by the team at Hazelwood Homes. This space is a white painted kitchen with an applied glaze and a black painted accent island. It also includes quartz counters, an incredible flooring choice, and a Stainless Steel appliance package. We work closely with our new construction clients to build a team of experts from each department of our store needed. We are all one team working along with you to reach one vision. That way the time spent working on your project in and out of the Village Home Stores showroom is spent wisely. We value your time and we want to see you happy in your new home with the selections you have made from us. The process of building a home can be overwhelming but we do our best to make it fun an exciting. No matter if you are building, remodeling, or just browsing our blog for ideas, there are a lot of great material and design details in this space so let’s jump right in.

What a beautiful space! Selecting white kitchen cabinetry in a great room kitchen setting is always a wonderful choice to keep the entire open concept light and airy. It is a classic cabinet finish that has remained on home magazines covers for years and years. This kitchen space takes a classic look to a whole new level though with added details and material choices that keep it functional and very eye-catching. Beginning with the statement accent island in the center of the kitchen.

This single-level kitchen island includes storage on three sides, outlets on each end, and an overhang for counter-height seating. A gradual, curved radius has been applied to that overhang to soften the look. This island is the best area to showcase the countertop selection for the kitchen. The “Summerhill” design from Cambria Quartz is as durable as it is gorgeous. A blend of expertly curated neutral quartz colors makes it work with so many styles and material combinations. Cambria’s innovative fabrication process even adds a natural looking veining to the slabs. This gives you the look of natural stone with a control of color. It is also an incredibly durable product and perfect surface for any active kitchen. Learn more about Cambria Quartz here in a past blog post.

Above is a closer shot of the “Summerhill” tops in this kitchen. Notice how it includes whites, beiges, grays, AND even a black fleck! Stop in and see samples and installed examples of Cambria Quartz at our showroom. Curious how a Cambria color will look in your existing kitchen? There’s an AR app to “try” them on! Learn more here on the Cambria site! The perimeter counters in this kitchen have been an “Ogee” edge applied for added style and dimension. A great way to show off that the Cambria quartz colors are throughout the entire slab of material from top to bottom. Now do us a favor. Scroll back up to the very first image of this kitchen and look at the inset doorstyle of the kitchen cabinets we’ll wait right here for you to return… and reveal that AREN’T inset doors at all! But at first glance did we have you tricked?

Inset cabinetry is an incredible look and a very classic choice for any kitchen design. But in this home, we have given the illusion of a high-end inset door at a fraction of the investment. This is the “Lexington” door from our Koch Express line of cabinetry. It has been painted in the “White” finish and a “Black Accent” has been applied to the door details. That added accent is what give the illusion of a door inset and shadowed. This small detail added to a traditional-overlay cabinet door gives a great look. It also helps to compliment the black island cabinetry perfectly. We love how the kitchen island pendants compliment the appliances in this space. These 16 1/2″ pendant lights are from Quorum’s Signature Collection and are in the Satin Nickel finish. Satin nickel is a great compliment to the Whirlpool Stainless Steel appliances.

A 26 cu. ft. French Door refrigerator with double drawers and dual icemakers is a great choice for this busy kitchen. The focal point of this wall s the 30″ wide 5-burner gas cooktop with a tall chimney hood above. Shop all of our appliances any day, any time here on our new mobile-friendly website. What a great look for this wall of the kitchen design! Look at how the tile extends all of the way up to meet the angled ceiling behind the hood. A clean look on the edge of that tile is achieved by using a metal edge band to “cap” off the ends in a complimenting Nickel finish.

Oh trust us, we know you noticed that pot-filler faucet above the cooktop right away! Our envy-radar also went off when we saw it. Choices like these are what make a space gorgeous AND functional. We wanted to also showcase here the use of a classic subway tile in white paired with an accent tile and contrasting grout. White subway tile with a dark contrasting grout is an on-trend look but it’s not for everyone. In this kitchen, it would have been a very busy look to have a darker contrast. This subtle color choice pulls a neutral from the counter surface color and the look is great. The accent tile here is from Epic Stone’s Interlocking series in the “Everest” color combination. We also used this same accent tile in one of the tiled showers in the home (shown below).

This shower includes an elongated version of a subway tile These tiles are 4″ x 16″ and installed horizontally, they add a stylish detail while helping to make the shower seem wider. That same accent tile fro the kitchen is used as a band around the shower and also reappears on the front face of the corner bench. A 2″ hexagon tile is used here as the shower floor. Notice also the installation of a shower grab bar at the entrance. See more examples of grab bars we have installed here in this Houzz ideabook. This has become a common request from our clients of all ages and abilities. Installing assistance like this that will help a customer age-at-home and just remain safe is always a great investment!

Back to the kitchen where we can mention another important investment. The flooring you choose for a new home is so important. You want to make selections that will be durable and compliment all of the other selections you are making for fixtures and furniture in your new home. In an open concept layout like this, our COREtec engineered plank floors are a great choice. COREtec comes in a large variety of wood styles and finishes so there truly is something for any space. What our COREtec customers love beyond the look is the performance! These surfaces are kidproof, waterproof, and petproof! For our remodel customers they are great because they can also easily be installed over existing hard surfaces. Contact a flooring expert at Village Home Stores to learn more.

Bettendorf Iowa- Kitchen Remodeled From Start to Finish

This remodel feature takes us to a Bettendorf Iowa home that was in need of updates to better match the needs and tastes of new homeowners. The Complete Project Management Program at Village Home Stores allowed us to manage every estimate, every step, every schedule, and every detail for these clients. With a plan in place and a schedule in action we were able to remodel this home before they even moved in. Take a look at the beautiful new kitchen:Painted kitchen with accent glaze in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. #kitchen #remodel from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Like many of the before stories we share here on the blog, the original kitchen was very nice. A functional design with quality products at the time it was installed many years ago. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t in need of updates. A long kitchen peninsula divided the kitchen from the dining room space and storage was limited to standard height wall cabinets: 

We began by removing the existing kitchen, ceiling soffits, and ceramic tile flooring. The new design from Village Home Stores replaces the peninsula with a center kitchen island. This allows us to open up the kitchen to feel included in the open floor plan the home already had. A large skylight at the center of the kitchen is a fantastic feature and will remain a part of the new design. 

The photo above shows progress after demo and plumbing and electrical rough-ins have been completed based on the new kitchen layout. A half-wall has been built for the new kitchen island. Many crews were scheduled and coordinated to remodel the kitchen, flooring, a stairway, many upstairs bedrooms, and a master bathroom (more on that in a future post). The most dramatic transformation happened in the kitchen. Take a look at this new stunning bright kitchen!Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf from Village Home Stores. Project managed from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Beautiful new random-width light Hickory floors from our Bella Cera line in a finish named “Precis” set the stage for the new space. Cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Legacy”, Full-Overlay door has been painted in a “White” finish and an “Umber” highlight has been applied. You can see how the Umber highlight helps to accent the details of cabinetry especially the beaded back panel of the kitchen island. Beadboard back panel on kitchen island in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

The skylight, bright painted cabinetry, and light hardwood floors help to give the space a warm and bright feel… but rest assured, we still added an expert lighting plan to the new kitchen. Recessed can lighting was placed throughout to illuminate the new areas of the kitchen and our bestselling Diode LED tape light was installed as undercabinet AND in-cabinet lighting. Diode LED undercabinet lighting used to light interior and underside of cabinets in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

This lighting system is essential to help add ambient and task lighting (shown above in full daylight). This system is low profile, low voltage and creates the perfect wash of consistent light to any area. Electricians love the low-profile versatility of this product because you can “hide” it easily out of sight. Take a look at how easily it is tucked away behind the cabinet faceframe below: Diode LED undercabinet lighting used to light interior of cabinet in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

A tall pantry cabinets fit with adjustable sliding shelves is always an enviable part of any kitchen tour. When your tall cabinet is more than 12″ deep, discuss your storage options with you designer. Slide out shelves can always make pantry access (and staying organized) easier. Tall pantry cabinet with slideout shelves in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

Notice also in the image above that a baseboard molding near the floor has been wrapped around this section of cabinetry. This helps to create a built-in look to the hutch area. The baseboard also gets an added accent from the Umber highlight applied to the cabinet finish. Another tall pantry is down the wall near the refrigerator. More tall cabinet storage is just beyond the new kitchen in the laundry room (shown just through the door in the image below).

A package of KitchenAid appliances in Stainless Steel make this bright and beautiful kitchen extremely functional beginning with the incredible 5 door refrigerator model selected. This full-sided French Door model includes two soft-close refrigerated drawers and a three-tiered freezer layout. One of the drawers has 5 preset temperatures so you can select to store: meat/fish, drinks, greens/herbs, deli/cheese, or even thaw/marinate items. The other drawer includes a Produce Preserver feature ideal for getting the longest life for your fresh produce. Shop the full details of this refrigerator here on our new website or stop by the store today and see it in person.

A Sharp microwave drawer in the center kitchen island includes a tilt-out control panel and blends seamlessly with the other appliances. Microwave drawers install so well into kitchen islands and locating a microwave in a center kitchen island is a more convenient location than having them tucked into a corner or awkwardly above a cooktop. Microwave drawers give a great customized look.

Another great custom kitchen, built-in look is achieved by separating the kitchen cooktop and oven. In this design a 30″ wide 5-burner gas cooktop is installed above a 30″ wide convection wall oven.  Shown below with another great detail of changing the cabinet and countertop depth at the cooking station for added interest. Wall #oven built into base cabinet with Gas #cooktop above. KitchenAid appliances by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Above the cooktop is a wood hood design with a concealed Broan blower insert. 390 CFMs hidden within a hood cabinet that is taller and deeper than the surrounding cabinets. Looking for options and ideas for your own kitchen hood? Perhaps debating between a metal or wood hood? Don’t miss out on our Pinterest board dedicated to that very topic!

Take a moment to notice the scale of the cabinet hardware on the doors and drawers. Cabinet handles and knobs can sometimes be one of the last decisions made but they are so important for a complete design. The handles selected here are an appropriate scale with the door and drawer sizes. Smaller “standard” sized handles would look out of place. The wall surfaces of the new kitchen keep the light bouncing around perfectly. Glossy, glass subway tile adds texture and style to the space. This 3″ x 6″ tile is from our Appeal series in a neutral color named “Cloud Cream”Glass subway tile in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

Classic Subway Tiles can be installed in a number of patterns. We love the choice here to use a Herringbone pattern. It adds a playful look to the classic tile shape. The countertops in this kitchen are another neutral and classic choice. This “Chakra Beige” engineered quartz is one of our promotional-priced colors at the time of this feature. It blends well with painted or stained cabinets and shown here with the light Hickory floors it looks perfect. Quartz is a no-nonsense counter material for your kitchen. It is non-porous (no stains) and heat and scratch resistant! Once installed, there is no maintenance needed and the surface can be cleaned easily with soap and water or any non-abrasive cleaner.

Bettendorf Iowa Craftsman Quartersawn Oak Kitchen Remodel

We love any chance to showcase the work that we have completed here on the blog. Many times it may seem like a lot of our projects have a similar look to each other as you scroll through our portfolio of featured kitchens. Naturally, as styles and trends appear, our projects begin to have similar themes and tones. So anytime we get something different to tour… we jump at the opportunity.  How about a break from painted white kitchens for an Oak one? Quartersawn Oak cabinetry by Dura Supreme paired with a natural Acacia floor, natural stone tile, and engineered quartz counters. | VillageHomeStores.com

Any fan of the Arts & Crafts style or any lover of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work can appreciate the gorgeous clean lines, smooth woodgrains, and natural elements that truly bring the outdoors in. This kitchen has come a long way. The original space had white cabinets, beige laminate counters, and ceramic tile flooring. Take a look at this before photo:

And now look at this warm and inviting Craftsman kitchen. Craftsman style is all about clean lines, attention to function, and heirloom-quality material choices. This style also reflects a love of the natural, creating a connection between a space and its surroundings. Bringing the outdoors in with natural materials in this kitchen is a celebration of that important Craftsman style element. But what could be “different” about an Oak kitchen? Well for starters… this isn’t a standard Oak kitchen.
Quartersawn Oak cabinetry by Dura Supreme paired with a natural Acacia floor, natural stone tile, and engineered quartz counters. | VillageHomeStores.com

Many furniture pieces and built-in units in this Craftsman school of style include an Oak wood rich in smooth, patterned grain. However, the woodgrain patterns on these cabinets are a different variety than most expect from Oak. This is because instead of a standard cut Oak, select “quartersawn” Oak materials are used to build the visible elements. Notice the bottom rail of the door in the photo below:
Bettendorf Iowa Quartersawn Oak kitchen with cabinetry by Dura Supreme. Kitchen remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

That unique marbled woodgrain detail is a result of a quartersawn method of collecting raw materials. How this is achieved will be better explain in an upcoming episode of the Village Home Show that also includes a full video tour of this kitchen. The quartersawn Oak cabinetry is from our Dura Supreme line. The door is named “Hudson” and the wood has been stained with a “Butternut” stain.

The top section of some of the wall cabinet doors have been prepared for glass with a mullion design. A frosted glass has been inserted for a great look that also conceals what is within it. This kitchen design creates a large U-shape and even wraps around one of the end corners to create a small wine bar area. An X-shaped wine cubbie cabinet is an updated approach to wine storage and this added section of countertop will be great for serving when entertaining.

Of course this finished kitchen would be nowhere near as warm and inviting without our Diode LED undercabinet lighting installed. It is amazing how even during the daytime this lighting can take a kitchen to a whole new level! In this kitchen we were sure to wrap the lighting all the way around the corner into this serving area.
Bettendorf Iowa Quartersawn Oak kitchen with Diode undercabinet lighting system. Kitchen remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

A great way to “bring the outdoors in” but still keep a design feeling contained and clean is with your material choices. This kitchen includes a backsplash of pencil-thin Pietra Opus Canyon Quartz tiles. These tiles add a texture and assortment of colors that add earthtones to the space. Bettendorf Iowa Quartersawn Oak kitchen with cabinetry by Dura Supreme paired with Pietra Opus Canyon Quartz tile. Kitchen remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Above the cooktop area is a section of accent tile. This tile is from the Crossroads Crushed Mood Glass series in the “Karma” colorway. These 1″ x 2″ tiles pull from the same earthtones of grays and greens and add another texture and pattern to the wall. Below the cooktop are two large pots and pans drawers. These large high-capacity drawers come with drawer guides that are ready and willing to hold heavy loads. As a way to create a custom-fit Craftsman look, the Designer from Village included footed areas in some of the toespaces. Take a look at the two “feet” right beneath this cooktop area. A great look. Quartersawn Oak cabinetry by Dura Supreme with a gas 5-burner cooktop. | VillageHomeStores.com

Including a wood hood design in this kitchen also helps keep the space feeling warm and customized. Instead of a large and cold steel hood, a wood hood has been ordered and installed to match the kitchen. A 390 CFM Broan hood insert is concealed within the hood for ventilation when needed. 

At the very center of the new kitchen is a single-level island full of more great drawer storage and an overhang for counter-height seating. The Engineered Quartz in this kitchen design is part of a grouping of promotional-priced Quartz colors. This is named “Solare” and becomes a perfect neutral no-maintenance counter surface for the kitchen. Solare is not a completely solid color. There are some subtle tone-on-tone patterns in the slabs for added dimension. Be sure to ask your Kitchen and Bath Designer at Village Home Stores about our promotional priced stone options. The look you dream of may fit within your budget after all! Quartersawn Oak cabinetry by Dura Supreme paired with a natural Acacia floor, natural stone tile, and engineered quartz counters. | VillageHomeStores.com

But did you notice the flooring yet? Modeled here by full-time cutie and part-time flooring model “Gracie”, these LWM Natural Acacia hardwood floors set an incredible stage for this entire new Great Room space! Wood cabinets with wood floors? YOU BET!
Bettendorf Iowa Quartersawn Oak kitchen with cabinetry by Dura Supreme paired with Acacia Natural hardwood floors. Kitchen remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Here the Oak cabinets are consistent in color and the Acacia wood showcases many wood colors and patterns while keeping and overall look in a Medium woodtone just like the cabinets. Did you know that Village Home Stores also can order and install interior doors for your projects? The refrigerator wall in this kitchen design includes an entrance to a home office. We designed a cabinet layout that wrapped and surrounded this entrance and created a doorway space custom fit for the office entry.
Quartersawn Oak cabinetry by Dura Supreme paired with an appliance package from Village Home Stores. Kitchen remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

To the left of the doorway is a built-in wall oven with a microwave above. This microwave unit is a very Affordable way to get a built in look in many applications. It is just a universal countertop microwave with a trim kit ordered to frame it into the cabinet space. The same application also works well in a base cabinet of an island. To the right of the doorway is a 36″ wide Whirlpool refrigerator. This model is counter-depth refrigerator. That allows it to sit back as close to the surrounding cabinetry and panels as possible leaving more walkway space between the island top and the refrigerator doors. Be sure to discuss refrigerator depth with your Kitchen Designer and Appliance Salesperson at Village Home Stores to help find the right fit for your space and your budget.

Hazelwood Homes- Kitchen With Rich Birch Wood and Shimmering Cambria Quartz

We have the opportunity to design so many unique kitchen spaces throughout the Quad Cities Region. Each and every design is unique from the next and the materials selected are just as unique and each client and home. It seems like we have shared a LOT of painted white kitchens lately on the blog but rest assured that isn’t all that we do! This Geneseo, IL kitchen from Hazelwood Homes is a wonderful example:
Birch Mocha kitchen in Geneseo, IL with Cambria Quartz and KitchenAid appliances for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

There is truly nothing more inviting than a warm and cozy woodgrain kitchen. Rich, wood cabinetry is paired with warm lighting and materials throughout. The look is tailored and high-end but the design and setting is so inviting. Koch Classic Cabinetry in the Westbrook doorstyle and Birch “Mocha” stain has been accented with “Black” highlights. The cabinets stretch all the way to the ceiling and the height of the wall cabinets allow for a double panel door design (see below).
Koch cabinetry Westbrook door in Birch Mocha stain. Double panel door with cabinetry to ceiling. | VillageHomeStores.com

Beautiful and classic subway tile is installed as the kitchen backsplash throughout and even extends to surround the kitchen window and above. One of our unique Transitions blinds is installed in the window. An arched valance detail above the kitchen sink is repeated in the custom wood hood above the cooktop.

A matching wood hood can be ordered to be placed within your kitchen design from Village Home Stores. The same raised center panels from the doors are used as a detail in hood and sink valances. A hood blower/insert can be concealed within these wood hood cabinets. These inserts can be ordered in a number of configurations and powers. That way you can customize the look AND function of your ventilation to fit your needs.

A 36″ wide 5-burner gas cooktop from KitchenAid® offers a versitile cooktop layout including a range from a high heat of 20K BTUs to a simmer of just 6k BTUs. Full width cast iron grates make it easy to slide from burner to burner. The CookShield finish helps to protect the cooktop from high-temperature cooking stains.

But what about small appliances? How does this kitchen not seem so cluttered? The coffeepot and toaster are hidden behind the door of a corner appliance garage cabinet. This new style of hinged door appliance garage is a welcome update from the accordion door styles of the past. Another wonderful storage solution hidden from sight is this hidden walk-in pantry:

We can order walk-through pantry door fronts to match your kitchen as well! These double doors open to reveal a huge walk-in pantry behind the wall oven area. Press play below to see the tall door open to reveal the pantry entrance.

A double wall oven by KitchenAid® is paired with an over-the-counter microwave model from Sharp®. Over-the-counter microwaves allow for you to keep a decorative hood element to your design but eliminate the need to set a microwave oven on the countertop. This model from Sharp blends well with our other appliance brands for a seamless package look.

The innovative new 5-door refrigerator models by KitchenAid® are stylish and packed with amazing features. The KitchenAid® brand was the first in the industry to introduce a 5-door model. The two small drawers in the center of the unit are refrigeration. The left drawer includes 5 preset temperatures: meat/fish, drinks, greens/herbs, deli/cheese, and even a thaw/marinate setting. The right drawer is ideal for produce storage with a built-in produce preserving featureKitchenAid 5 door french door refrigerator in Stainless Steel. | VillageHomeStores.com

This kitchen is a two-toned design that includes a contrasting finish on the batwing-shaped kitchen island. The same Koch Westbrook doorstyle from the kitchen perimeter is painted White with am “Umber” highlight on the door and drawer front details. Cambria Quartz in the “Berwyn” design completes the look in the stylish beveled edge profile.

The island ends and back has been fit with custom doors and furniture baseboard molding for finished look. An island light from our Artcraft line hangs above the center of the kitchen island. Of course no complete kitchen can be showcased this well without our favorite secret weapon… our Diode LED undercabinet lighting. This space wouldn’t look as warm and inviting without it.

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

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.

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.
