Rock Island Kitchen Remodel With Blue Accent Island

This home in Southwest Rock Island was ready for a more updated and opened up design. While the home had an interesting layout, the kitchen still seemed separated from other nearby rooms because of a dividing wall. The Village Home Stores design and project management team took the original U-shaped layout and replaced it with a spacious new L-shape and large island. Take a look at this amazing new kitchen!

The large kitchen island has an overhanging countertop with space to seat four comfortably. Nearby is a dinette area where we built in a bench seat below the window. This new bench includes added storage drawers that match the kitchen cabinetry. Now these customers are shopping for a new casual dining table that can use in this corner. Many of our remodel customers want to maximize storage as much as possible with a new layout. Including bench seating within your island design or along a wall is a great way to create a seamless and custom look while adding storage.

The main kitchen includes an L-shape layout with the cleaning, cooking, and refrigerator zones. The new wall cabinets stretch to the ceiling and include a stylish crown molding detail. Crown molding, undercabinet molding, and added details like the fluted columns framing in the microwave space all help to create a stylish take on a traditional kitchen design.

Not every kitchen layout can allow a corner lazy susan cabinet. In the case of this kitchen, a susan in the corner would have moved the kitchen sink away from the center of the window. A “blind corner” cabinet can be used in this instance to allow usable space on one side, and a standard cabinet on the other. Our cabinet vendors offer many specialty options to help maximize your accessible storage. Press play below to see the swing out shelving option we included in this kitchen corner cabinet.

White painted kitchens remain to be a best-selling choice across all regions in our industry. Of course if you have ever gone to select a white paint for a project, you quickly realize there are MANY shades to choose from. The same is the case in our cabinetry selections. A stark “White” paint may not be what you are after. We have some that are a warmer Ivory or Pearl finish, and others that lean toward a cooler gray tone. This kitchen is the “Oyster” painted finish from our Koch Cabinetry line. In this home, the Oyster paint has been given a “Smoke” highlight to enhance the edges and molding details. We love the look of this finish. The Smoke highlight is such a great compliment to metal finishes as well.

The long kitchen island is installed in the same Legacy doorstyle as the kitchen perimeter. The “Charcoal Blue” paint is a rich contrast to the Oyster kitchen. This Charcoal Blue painted cabinet finish is among our top selling accent colors for cabinets. We have sold many kitchens, bathrooms, home bars, and laundry spaces in the Quad Cities area in this finish. Take a look at the hardware selected for this kitchen. How perfect are the stacked edges of the “Calloway” handles with the edge profiles of the cabinet doors and drawers!?

The blue accent color was also used on the wall surface of the kitchen. Elongated glass tiles from Glazzio’s Aristocrat Harbor Series are stunning! The “Dim Afternoon” color takes the tone of the blue cabinet finish and adds a glossy finish and texture to the overall kitchen. A beveled edge to the tiles bounce and reflect light and shadows and add a lot of style to the space without introducing multiple new colors.

The cabinet handles are a Satin Nickel finish and that is a perfect compliment to the Smoke highlight of the cabinet paint and the Whirlpool Stainless Steel appliance suite in the new kitchen. A new Whirlpool dishwasher, beverage cooler (in the island), electric range, microwave hood, and refrigerator have been installed in this new kitchen. The microwave hood included is the new low profile model available from Whirlpool. This hood takes up a similar height footprint to a standard under-cabinet range hood, but includes a 1.1 cu. ft. microwave in it! Wish your current hood was a microwave? This may be the model for you! Contact a team member at Village today!

The refrigerator in the new kitchen is surrounded by a great pantry cabinet on one side, and an end panel on the other. To assure that the space between the kitchen island and this refrigerator was as open as possible, a counter-depth model was purchased. Counter depth refrigerators can save you space in your layout and give you a cleaner look. “Standard” refrigerators can stick out an added 4-6+” deeper than a kitchen cabinet so be sure to discuss this depth with your designer at Village Home Stores.

At the very center of this incredible new kitchen is a large island with seating. This island is of an enviable size and also has no sink or cooktop in it. That makes it an incredible versatile surface for prep, entertaining, dining, and more. A slight arch detail has been applied to the overhang area for added interest. This arch also helps soften the look and scale of the large island.

Engineered quartz countertops surfaces in the Carrara Marmi design are an instantly classic surface choice. The look of a polished marble, with the hassle-free appeal of a quartz counter, these surfaces will look incredible for many years to come. A stylish “Ogee” edge was applied to all of the countertop edges in this kitchen. This one detail choice makes such a huge impact in the completed space.

This remodel project involved removing a wall. That means of course that ceilings would need to be worked on and of course a new flooring surface to tie the new open space together. The solid 3/4″ Small Leaf Acacia flooring that was selected is absolutely stunning. When you walk into the home now you are greeted with the gorgeous warm flooring stretching all the way through the kitchen. We just love how it looks against the blue cabinetry. Ask a flooring expert at Village today about Acacia wood flooring for your home.

Modern Farmhouse Flooring and Wall Surfaces in a Silverthorne Parade Home

A successful design must include careful consideration of every element in the entire space. This absolutely includes the flooring and wall surfaces. With the rise of open-concept layouts, flooring selections can be an incredibly important surface providing the base that ties everything together. That’s a lot of pressure! Don’t worry, the experts at Village Home Stores are ready to help you find the perfect material for your space and your budget. Check out the flooring and wall surfaces at this recent Modern Farmhouse Model home we worked on with the Silverthorne Development Group.

Neutral tones are always a great choice no matter what style of space you are creating. In this Bettendorf, Iowa home we included our Dream Weaver carpeting from the Metropolitan series in the “Iron Frost” color. This carpet provides the color and comfort needed for the home’s bedroom, stairs, and closet floor surfaces. Make sure you are investing in quality flooring surfaces when you are building a home. You want carpeting that will stand the test of time. It needs to look and feel great for many years to come. Ask a flooring expert at Village about what sets Dream Weaver apart from other carpeting lines.

Of course we didn’t carpet the entire place. The main flooring surface you will fall in love with when visiting this home are the engineered wood floors in the entry, kitchen, dining, living room, mudroom, laundry, and hallways. This 7″ wide surface is from our Canoe Bay Key West line. The color is called “White Street” and it provides an gorgeous blend of lighter woodtones.

Light wood flooring is a major trend within the Modern Farmhouse, Scandinavian, MidCentury Modern, and Minimalist styles so popular right now. For the blend of wood furnishings and decor in this home it is absolutely perfect. The White Oak planks are softened in some areas with neutral area rugs. Did you know that Village Home Stores can custom cut and bind area rugs from any carpets here at the store!? Just give our flooring experts a call and we can quote your a price.

Every well-designed space needs some element of fun! In this great room it is the tile surface selected for the fireplace surround. This tile is from the Glazzio Picassa Series in the “Paloma Taupe” color. This pattern is neutral in color but almost has a quilt-like pattern in the mosaic. We repeated this same tile as an accent area above the kitchen cooktop across the great room.

If this pattern isn’t your thing, don’t worry! With this series of tile we can get the same color combination in a number of other patterns. In this Bettendorf living room, a rustic barnwood beam caps off the tiled surround for a mantle. We kept a clean look surrounding the tile edges with a bronze-finished metal end cap piece. These channeled tile trim pieces called “Schluter strips” help to cap off cut edges of tile and keep a contained and clean look.

We also used Schluter edging around the hearth area corners and edges. They come in a variety of finish color options. Here we keep a contrasting finish and the look makes a fun bold statement. The hearth area at the base of the fireplace is an elongated 3″ x 12″ “New Yorker” tile in a “Bright White” finish.

We repeated the same “New Yorker” tile as the main kitchen backsplash surface. If you find yourself drawn to spaces with white subway tiles surfaces ask about elongated tile options. Longer tiles in a subtle and classic shape, this option can help draw the look of a space out and seem larger.

For the tiled shower in the Master Bath we used an elongated white tile again but varied the texture and size a bit. Here we used a 4″ x 20″ tile from the “Ascot Brickwall” series in a “Matte White” color. Using a matte finished tile here helps to soften the space and help draw attention to the accent tile band around the center. 8″ x 24″ deco tiles from American Olean’s “Visual Impression” series are a Linear Diamond “Beige” color. As an added detail, we also used a warm gray grout color here to help showcase the wall tile shapes.

The Garage entry into this home takes you into a home office space currently being used as a Model Home meeting space for Silverthorne Homebuilders in this neighborhood. The flooring surfaces in here are a durable, floating floor surface by Paramount Flooring called RigidCORE. This Floating Luxury Vinyl Plank (shown below in “Seattle Mist”) is impenetrable from water, spills, accidents, and odors. It is also a thermally stable surface making it perfect for many multi-use Midwestern spaces.

Moline, IL Kitchen Remodel Finds Room For Style and a Small Island

This Moline, IL home was ready for a new kitchen look and layout. There were no major changes as far as moving appliances or even removing soffits. Rich new finishes were selected, storage was added, and room for a small kitchen island was found. Koch cabinetry in the flat-panel Savannah door and Birch wood stained Chestnut is a perfect compliment to the existing woodwork in the home.  Moline Illinois kitchen with Nevasca Mist granite, Koch Cabinetry, luxury vinyl floors, and mosaic tile. Remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

The main wall of cabinetry is found on the sink wall of the kitchen. A range is centered on a nearby wall with landing space on each side.  With plenty of walkway space surrounding it, a kitchen island is an important part of the new design! Prepping for a meal and coming home with a load of groceries just got a lot easier for this household. This two-cabinet island is a very functional part of the new layout. Perfectly located for prep, back door entry, and even space for seating! The added storage and work surface this island brings to the new kitchen is so important. The island top is also the best place to see the stunning granite selected for the kitchen. Moline Illinois kitchen with Nevasca Mist granite and Koch Cabinetry remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

One of the exciting parts of choosing granite for your remodel project in the Quad Cities is that we have a local source for you to select your material from! This can be a very interesting way to make a personal connection with your design. Epic Stone is located in Davenport, Iowa and there you can walk the aisles of slabs and help decide what you are drawn to. Your designer at Village can then partner with our fabricators to make sure the stone you hand-select makes the journey from Epic, to the fabrication shop, and then finally into your home. Learn more about Epic Stone here in a past blog post. This Moline, IL customer selected a stone named “Nevasca Mist” and it is a beautiful blend of warm grays and beiges.

So much great storage and functionality added to the kitchen with this small island. We also love the flooring selected for the new space. These may appear to be 12″ x 24″ ceramic tiles but no grout lines! That is because they are actually luxury vinyl tiles. Our Tarkett Premiere line can be installed with or without grout. This kitchen showcases a neutral color named “Onyx Travertine Silver” and the look is great. Moline Illinois kitchen with Koch cabinetry in Birch wood and Chestnut finish remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.comThe appliances were updated recently in this kitchen but we did make an adjustment to the microwave hood area of the layout. A smooth panel was installed above the microwave area to match the look of the drawerboxes in the kitchen. We added to the soffit depth on this side of the kitchen to allow the small crown molding to be installed and now the wall cabinet section has a full, customized surround look.

Across the kitchen was an area put to better use in the new design. The new kitchen island now can be a landing zone for back door entry. Instead of a base and wall cabinet combination, a tall pantry cabinet now offers so much storage space and a customized look to the stand-alone section of the kitchen. Moline Illinois kitchen tall pantry cabinet in a Birch wood and Chestnut finish remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

If you peek at the before and after image below, you will notice there wasn’t exactly a lot of backsplash space in the “before” kitchen. Tall wall cabinets were installed beneath existing soffits leaving only half of the expected space you would want for that area. If you look at the “after” side of the image, you will see a more comfortable suggested space of 18″.

It truly lets the tile choice in the new kitchen to be showcased. The tile and granite selections together are just perfect! The mosaic tile seems to have been made just for this pairing! Glazzio’s Closseum Series in the Caesar Beige color looks incredible! The granite and tile are splendidly showcased by our bestselling Diode LED lighting system.Moline kitchen with Nevasca Mist granite and Glazzio Colosseum series tile. Kitchen remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

This Diode LED lighting system is such a wise investment and every customer that has it installed is so happy with it. It is low-voltage, and low-profile leaving you with so many options for installation. Of course undercabinet lighting is our most popular use. Because of their low power use, these lights are perfect if you like to keep a night-light on on the evening or like to have lights on waiting for you when you arrive home. The Diode lights can also be dimmable shown below on one of our legrand radiant collection paddle switch sets:Moline Illinois kitchen with legrand Radiant paddle switches and outlets.

Old homes are just so much fun to remodel because you honestly never know what unique feature you will stumble upon! In this Moline home there was a laundry chute located on the left wall of the kitchen sink area.  While the homeowner wasn’t planning on using it for laundry, he did find a fun use. Voila! a recycling chute! He keeps a plastic bin down below to collect cans and sends them down when he is finished. We think Alice in Wonderland would find it a “curiously” custom solution and definitely a conversation starter. Moline Illinois kitchen with small custom door, Koch cabinetry in Birch wood and Chestnut finish remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Muscatine, Iowa- Kitchen Remodel With Coastal Colors and Some Sparkle

At Village Home Stores we have the great privilege of transforming spaces in our customer’s homes. These aren’t just any spaces, kitchens truly are the hub of all activity in a home. Remodel stories that begin after years of use are some of our favorites. Nothing makes you appreciate the transformation of a room more than truly living and experiencing the before and after. While that can be hard to translate to a blog post, we do think you can get a pretty great idea of this kitchen before and after just from the images. Muscatine Iowa before and after kitchen remode. Design, materials, and full project management from Village Home Stores. Koch Express cabinetry and Cambria quartz featured. | villagehomestores.com

This Muscatine, Iowa kitchen remodel is a wonderful example of how you can totally transform the look and function of a space without removing a wall or re-locating major appliances. Just look at the difference in the room just from the material choices! Dark, slab-style cabinetry has been replaced with a bright painted white. Added lighting helps to enhance these selections and make this new space bright both day and night.Muscatine Iowa kitchen with design, materials, and full project management from Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Painted cabinetry from our Koch Express line in the “Prairie” door with an applied molding detail. This doorstyle takes the look from a Transitonal flat-panel door to a more “Cottage” or “Coastal” style. That Coastal vibe is achieved with the material selections in colors and even textures. Alterna Luxury Vinyl Tile in a 16″ x 16″ tile and the “Glacier” color create a durable and comfortable flooring choice for the new kitchen. While the floors give a white sandy look, the mosaic backsplash makes you wish you were on the beach collecting seaglass.
Cambria Montgomery quartz and Glazzio mosaic tile installed by Village Home Stores in a Muscatine, Iowa home. Kitchen design, materials, and complete remodel by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

This mosaic is from the “Academia” series by Glazzio and the color is “Aviaton Mint”. It is a beautiful combination of varied textures and tones of soft green glass and even mirror tiles mixed in. You would honestly think that the tile was made just for this countertop choice too! Cambria Quartz in the “Montgomery” design is the perfect compliment to the colors in the tile. An ogee edge profile has been applied. Using a decorative edge in a galley kitchen design like this is a great way to make a small design choice that makes a big impact once installed.
Cambria Montgomery quartz in an Ogee edge installed by Village Home Stores in a Muscatine, Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

This ogee edge is showcased best on the exposed end at the kitchen entrance. That wall opposite the sink is where we find an appliance layout that really recreates the entire wall. The original kitchen design had cabinetry and shelves with no hood but a range below. There was just enough landing space to be claimed by a countertop microwave in the original kitchen:

The new kitchen design makes the most of the available space with landing space now on both sides of the range and an installed microwave hood above. The use of a microwave hood here not only frees up countertop space, it also provides needed ventilation for the cooktop.  Again, notice the ogee edge in the next image. Such a beautiful detail that lets the sparkle and colors of the Cambria materials be showcased.
Muscatine Iowa kitchen with design, materials, and full project management from Village Home Stores. Whirlpool appliances featured. | villagehomestores.com

Another great way to keep this new kitchen feeling bright and light is the use of mirror in place of glass in some of the cabinet doors. Two mirrored panels here reflect the window light right across the kitchen and two more narrow panels flank the kitchen sink area on the wall opposite it. Of course our Diode LED undercabinet lighting is a low-profile, low-voltage way of adding light to any project with us.

Reflected in the mirrors is the ceiling centerpiece of the new kitchen, a stunning semi- flushmount drum fixture by Kichler. This fabric drum shade is haloed by a cage of detail and from Kichler’s “Jardine” series. Crystals and botanical-inspired metal designs truly steal the attention of any arriving guest.  

Talk about another material match! Check out how perfectly the new custom window treatments look when paired with this light! This is exactly why it can be so important to work with a one-stop-shop like Village Home Stores. Your entire project vision can be seen by a team of experts, each from their own department to help you select the perfect items for your budget and the overall vision of the space. Two fabric roman shades were installed in the new kitchen. Each using the “Jazz Blue/Cream” fabric and the innovative ONEcontrol cordless system from our Horizon Window Fashions line.

You can find them all here on our award-winning houzz page. A new feature to this kitchen is probably one of the favorites for the homeowner… a dishwasher! Creating enough space on the sink wall to include a full-sized dishwasher is a game-changer for function in the new design.

Geneseo, IL- Dura Supreme Attitude Gray Painted Kitchen

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

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

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

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

Beaded panels cover the main face of the soffits and crown molding and trim cover all the seams. A suite of Stainless Steel Whirlpool appliances is included in this new kitchen. A sleek front-control gas range and microwave hood create a stylish and functional cooking zone in the new kitchen.
Geneseo kitchen remodel with DuraSupreme cabinetry in curated painted Attitude Gray finish. | VillageHomeStores.com

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

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

A 3″ x 12″ glass tile creates the main field for the kitchen backsplash and a 4″ tall row of deco tile breaks up the space and adds earthy texture.
