Quad Cities Kitchen With Black and White Cabinets

Welcome to this stunning new home in Bettendorf Iowa, Quad Cities with kitchen and bath designs by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes. Every corner of this new home is an example of a chic and sophisticated take on the clean, Scandinavian-inspired finish trends of combining white, matte black, and light woods. Join us on a short photo tour of the kitchen and bathroom spaces in this incredible new home beginning in the kitchen. Koch Cabinetry in the Savannah doorstyle is painted with a “Black” finish on the kitchen island and “White” for the perimeter. Whirlpool appliances and quartz counters are also featured. Let’s have a look around.

Matte black cabinets are continuing to “climb the charts” so to speak in our industry. We have installed full kitchens, kitchenettes, and countless bath vanities, home bars, and kitchen islands in this neutral finish. Here it is used in a traditional two-tone application as an accent color on the island. Another great look is to install black base cabinets and white uppers. See an example of that here in a past feature. Bright, white glossy Hanstone quartz counters in the “Strato” design are installed on the perimeter and kitchen island. And of course any dream kitchen isn’t complete without a great pantry. Check out that hidden walk-in pantry on the fridge wall!

It’s OK to admit your jealous because we are too! We can order one of these tall cabinet fronts to match your kitchen from Village Home Stores. Even just a small niche of space can be transformed into creative storage solutions inside. With the recent year we have all had, many can agree that we are shopping more and more in bulk. So a pantry like this is a wonderful asset to any busy household. Ask your kitchen designer at Village Home Stores how we can create a design for your new or existing home to include this feature.

The hardware for this kitchen is from our Jeffrey Alexander line in a matte black finish. Notice how on the closed pantry doors (above) a larger scale handle is installed. This is a functional and stylish design choice. While these tall doors are sturdy, they would open very flimsy if a small knob were installed to operate them. Matte black metal was also repeated in the two large pendant fixtures that hang above the kitchen island. These stone seeded glass pendants are 12″ wide and 21 1/2″ high in size from our Capital Lighting line. We have this pendant light on display in our showroom currently if you would like to see it in person. The glass texture is a detail that photos just can’t showcase as well as in person.

Another metal finish is introduced with the appliance suite in this kitchen. Whirlpool’s Stainless Steel is a fantastic fit for this complete vision. A front-control freestanding gas range with chimney-style hood above is the focal point of the back wall of the design. On the other wall you will find a french door refrigerator and Sharp microwave drawer. There is something so classic about a white wall of cabinetry with white on white subway tile and a great cooking pair like this.

This Whirlpool range boasts a massive 5.8 cu.ft. of capacity inside the oven and a 5-burner gas cooktop above including an oval central burner. It also includes a customer-favorite: Frozen Bake™ Technology. This takes the True Convection Cooking components in the oven and puts them to work to allow you to place fully frozen items into a cold oven and get amazing results without a preheat. This cooktop is also a dream to clean. The full-width cast iron grates have EZ-2-Lift™ hinges at the back. Just hinge them open, wipe the surface clean and hinge down!

In the kitchen island there is an apron front farm sink flanked by a pullout waste basket cabinet of the left, and a Stainless dishwasher on the right. This Whirlpool dishwasher has a 1 hour wash option and a Sensor cycle that picks the right cycle just for you. Finished items come out “cabinet-dry” dishes thanks to Fan Dry that uses a fan to pull in fresh, dry air. No more drying clean dishes before putting them away!

Of course a large part of a successfully competed great room design is a lighting plan that is well thought out for function and style. We love the linear caged light that hangs above the dining table just off the kitchen. This is the Quorum Olympus 8-light chandelier and it is shown here in the “Noir” finish. Also, can we get an amen for a dining table with a bench seat!? We love this look and Aspen Homes always does such a great job of staging their spec homes!

The bathrooms in this home are just as dreamy and lux as the kitchen! Check out this double vanity principal bathroom below. Plenty of drawer space for storage and counter between sinks. Outlets are installed on the interior of the two linen cabinets for grooming appliances. Bright white Koch cabinets are made even brighter with polished chrome metal details in this bathroom.

A lighting trend we love is installing your bath lighting directly through a custom wall mirror. This always elevates the look of any fixture but showing it off almost in a 360 view. Check out the image below to see this trend in action. Three “Manhattan” wall sconces from our Capital line are installed in this bathroom. One at the center between the sinks and the other two spaced near the linen cabinets.

Using the mate black trend in a bathroom can also be done while keeping a space feeling open and bright. Mate black accents can help to make graphic statements in your overall design. We love this bathroom in the home that includes two black framed mirrors with lighting, plumbing, and cabinet hardware all in a matte black. Just like the kitchen island lights, these “Colton” Capital fixtures combine a black metal finish with a textured glass.

The same Savannah door from the kitchen is used in this bathroom but a subtle gray paint named “Dusk” is applied. The hardware and lighting accents aren’t the only thing with a softer, matter finish applied. We also can order our cultured vanity tops in a matte finish. The Onyx Collection is a line that offers tops and shower systems. They have tons of modern bowl shapes, and so many colors to choose from. This is not the shell-bowl pink marbled top from your great grandma’s house folks…. but believe it or not its the same product and concept. Matte white is always a classic look. Your designer at Village may ask if you are in need of any end splashes for your top. Below is an example of a (right) end splash. On tops with sinks near a wall or cabinet, these protect that surface from water splashing up.

Moline Kitchen Remodel With Gray Base and White Upper Cabinets

You know we love sharing before and after remodel stories here on the blog, but this Moline, IL kitchen is way more than another before and after story. What a stunning take on the updated two tone kitchen trend with dark base cabinets and light uppers. But folks, we almost didn’t have the chance to bid this project! We say over and over that we we can beat box store pricing if we are just given the opportunity and this project is proof of that. This customer was ready to purchase cabinetry from a box store and thankfully a friend suggested she also get a bid from our small business. And we got the chance to sell her this amazing kitchen!

How gorgeous and on trend is this look!? The Savannah doorstyle from our Koch Classic line of cabinetry is installed with a painted gray “Fog” finish on the base cabinets and “White” paint on the upper cabinets and floating shelves. The old kitchen was original to the home and needed a wall removed to create a much more functional layout. What an update!

A wall once divided the kitchen from the dining room and now a peninsula with counter-height stools offers added seating. Hanstone quartz in the “Speechio White” design dazzles and sparkles. Across from the U shape kitchen, the refrigerator is recessed into the wall and a pantry and coffee bar area has been installed. Anyone with a KitchenAid mixer will be envious of the cabinet shown below:

Mixer lift cabinets can be a great storage solution for bakers because they free up countertop space and offer a sturdy location for your stand mixer that tucks easily out of sight when not in use. Notice the cord in the above image. We always recommend you install an outlet on the back end of this cabinet interior so you can always have your mixer plugged in and at the ready without having to bend down.

We also included a pull out spice rack in the kitchen near the range. Pull out cabinets can be ordered in many sizes and even have options for other storage besides spices and cooking oils. Ask a Village Home Stores kitchen designer about pull out knife racks, towel bars, pegboard utensil holders, bin utensil holders, tray dividers, and more! The new kitchen layout in this Moline home includes a peninsula with an extended countertop for casual counter-height seating. A large stack of drawers spans most of the peninsula area with a blind corner cabinet at the turn. This is the second kitchen feature we have shared in this new year to include a blind corner cabinet.

This wire blind corner insert is the ultimate use of space. A factory-installed slide and pivot wire rack system allows you easy access to the usable storage space of this cabinet. Ask a kitchen designer at Village Home Stores about all of your corner cabinet options from Koch Cabinetry. Press play below to see this cabinet open and operate.

Another storage area we love was installed by the customer in the small hallway near the kitchen. A narrow section of wall was converted into a lighted bar area with a small beverage cooler. It is now the perfect location to store and display bar items right within reach of the kitchen, dining room, and nearby sunroom when entertaining.

What a fun use of this small space! Check out this customer's bar area in a hallway near the new kitchen.

We can handle your remodel from start to finish but that is not every customer’s need. This customer arranged for their own demo and installation and Village provided the cabinetry and countertop surfaces. Village can help as little or as much as you want for your own project. We also want to remind you that we carry a wide variety of products that can compliment all project needs and budgets.

Why Choose Quartz For Countertops?

Just because quartz is a man-made product doesn’t mean it isn’t a gorgeous and unique surface for your home! Quartz is a wonderful investment for a countertop in your home that looks great and performs great! It is scratch-resistant, foodsafe, and maintenance free! Because of it’s non-porous characteristics, there is never any sealing required. A non-porous surface also means a foodsafe surface for food prep and service. Many restaurants and commercial bakeries choose to have quartz installed for work surfaces for hygienic and durability reasons. If you have a busy kitchen and truly use your work surfaces, quartz may be the right surface for you! Please say hello to our fifteen Hanstone Quartz 2019 promo colors:

What’s Included in a sq/ft Price For Quartz Tops?

Your sq/ft price from Village Home Stores includes template, fabrication, and installation of your tops. You may choose from an Eased, 1/2 Round, or Ogee standard edges. There will be no added installation charge, this is an installed price and includes a template to confirm correct dimensions for your countertops.  A standard undermount sink opening and faucet drilling are also included. Undermount sinks are recommended for quartz countertop installations because they give you a clean look that is easy to wipe clean from surface to the sink. Undermount sinks come in a variety of materials and design. For kitchen sink inspiration check out this ideabook we made on our Houzz page. Your salesperson at Village Home Stores will partner with our Quartz fabrication shop to communicate the sink model and faucet locations you have selected so that they can install your purchased sink to the tops at installation.

What Isn’t Included in The Price?

Cooktops, slide-in ranges, additional sinks, additional faucet holes, and outlet cut-outs available at an upcharge. This installed price does not include plumbing hook-up of sink or faucets. You must provide a drawing with measurements and a layout for a quote. All we need are a few basic measurements from you to quote you a price for your counters. Don’t worry, this is NOT what is used to fabricate your countertops. It is just enough information to answer our questions and get you an accurate sq.ft. quote for your space. 

Image via Hanstone Quartz. Shown: Yorkville

While this is an installed price, the removal of your existing tops must be arranged before template and installation dates. This can be quoted to you upon request. Existing countertops must be removed before template date. Once your template date has been arranged, you can expect just a one week turnaround time for your countertops! While we understand that being without countertops and a sink is an inconvenience, we have worked hard to narrow this timeframe down to a single week to help. Check out this past blog post about setting up a temporary kitchen and dishwashing station while you are waiting for your project to be completed.

If it is determined that an overhanging area of quartz surface requires support brackets, they can be quoted to you for an additional charge. We have many quartz countertop surfaces installed in our showroom displays as well as samples of each of these promo-priced options. Are you interested in getting a quote for one of these stunning quartz surfaces for your own home? Just reach out to our kitchen design team for a quote. You can call us at 309 944 1344 or complete this short online form and a team member will contact you about your project. You can grab a .pdf flier with all of these colors listed on it here. We can’t wait to hear what project you are working on!

Coal Valley, IL- Black, White, and Gold Kitchen Remodel

So what is black and white and gold all over? This perfectly on-trend kitchen remodel in Coal Valley, IL. A Transitional style space that is tasteful and right on trend! We originally met with this customer about estimating design and materials for her brand new home. Instead she ended up finding a great existing home opportunity in Coal Valley, IL. She then began working with us to remodel this home completely to now reflect her own taste and personality.

The home was in great shape and already had a very functional layout to work with. The 1990’s finishes however, were ready for an update. Medium Oak cabinetry, laminate counters, and beige paint graces every room. Here is a peek at the original kitchen that included a peninsula and white appliances. There was already a space adjacent to the kitchen for a dining area.

This customer worked closely with a team from Village Home Stores and her own contractors to take the 90’s property not only up to date… but magazine cover worthy! When you work with Village Home Stores, part of our process is to present you with full color renderings of your designs. This is our process whether you are building or remodeling. In a remodel of this size, the renderings help to visualize the shift of the entire style of a home. Seeing the vision in a rendering helps out so much! Our experts work with you to make sure the complete design and all the selections within it will work perfectly AND reflect your own tastes. In this case, the tastes of our client were sophisticated and stylish!

Two-tone kitchen design has seen some major shifts over the past few years. Originally, the most comfortable way to two-tone a kitchen design has been to add a second finish to a freestanding kitchen island. A refreshing new approach has been to install a dark base cabinet and a lighter upper cabinet in a design. We see this with darker graphite grays, blacks, and even navy blue.
Black base cabinets and White upper cabinets paired with quartz counters. | VillageHomeStores.comPainted black and white cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Savannah” door is complimented with a Cararra Marble backsplash in a herringbone pattern. A single-level island in the center of the design seemed to almost appear to be wrapped in ribbon. That ribboned look is a waterfalling quartz installation. Hanstone quartz “Tranquility” is installed as the island countertop and the perimeter is a solid white “Royale Blanc” design.

With the peninsula now removed, that left plenty of room for a large island to stretch the full length of the kitchen. A Microwave drawer by Sharp® is at the center with a large drawer below. The microwave is surrounded by wide drawer stacks and added storage and a pullout waste basket on the end near the sink.

Cascading/waterfalling your countertops could become the jaw-dropping statement-maker you are looking for! We recently installed our new front desk area to include multiple waterfall counters and all of our showroom guest love the look. See those tops here in a past blog post.
Hanstone quartz counters in the Tranquility design in a remodeled Coal Valley, IL kitchen. VillageHomeStores.com

With the quartz counters “wrapping” each end of the island, that doesn’t leave a great space to include an outlet. A large island like this in a great room space demands entertaining guest. Can’t you just picture this place full for a Holiday get-together? Power is needed for small appliances or even charging electronics when working from the island seating. We concealed the outlet right on the end beneath the decorative corner detail. The matte black outlet and cover blend perfectly. The kitchen island seats four and the nearby Dining area can accommodate more formal Dining guests. A 6-light gold orb fixture by Quorum hangs above the large dining table.

Not only did this client have a very clear idea of her own personal style, she was incredibly organized with her inspirations! If you are dreaming of a new kitchen but know it will be a few years down the road, start honing your own tastes and inspirations now! Not only did this client come to us with a contagious enthusiasm, she also came with binders full of ripped out magazine photos, Pinterest boards, and even Houzz ideabooks. The open shelf wall of her design came inspired by an instagram post by Kristin on the Bliss at Home blog.

We think this corner of the kitchen design is such a beautiful way to add a space to personalize and customize the kitchen throughout the year. The Cararra Marble herringbone backsplash tile is installed from countertop to ceiling. This tile from Epic Stone adds texture and detail without being a distraction or too busy. Marble cut into small tiles provides a timeless tone-on-tone look.
Black painted cabinets, Black Stainless steel, and stylish open shelving. | VillageHomeStores.com

The gold shelf brackets are just one of the many gold accents throughout the space. The custom shelves are an Oak wood that has been charred. Charred or blackened wood accents are beginning to become a huge home accessories trend and we love introducing this look into the kitchen. The Japanese charred wood technique is called Shou Sugi Ban or Yakisugi.
Gold brackets and charred black shelves in a black and white kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

The charred wood compliments the Black painted base cabinets so well and adds another unique texture to the design. The finishes are not the only thing that saw an update. Our adorne® collection of outlets and switches from legrand® add fuction and style to the space. Take a look at this great pop-out outlet below the open shelves.
Pop-out outlet by legrand. | VillageHomeStores.com

Power when needed and concealed and stylish when not in use. Plus this single outlet packs a lot of power. This single pop-out includes 4 outlets! A brushed gold kitchen faucet adds another place for that pop of gold accent. This faucet also has a pull-out spray wand.
Brushed Gold Kohler kitchen faucet. | VillageHomeStores.com

Selecting a accent color is only half of the process of executing it well. Accenting is all about balancing scale and locations of your colors. This kitchen includes pops of gold found in the lighting, hardware, and accessories. The underside of the kitchen island pendants give a peek-a-boo approach to the accent. These pendants are named “Placuna” and come from our Uttermost line.
Gold kitchen lighting by Uttermost and Kichler. | VillageHomeStores.com

Due to the large size of the new kitchen window, a single light wouldn’t seem appropriate. Two 10″ wide Kichler “Maclain” pendants hang framing in the sink area. The same legrand series that makes the pop-out outlet mentioned above also offers a modular undercabinet system. This unique system of lighting, outlets, and electronic docking accessories can be customized and changed to accommodate the kitchen needs.
Modular undercabinet lighting and outlet system by legrand. | VillageHomeStores.com

All of the outlet and USB boxes can be pulled and moved to other locations. There are also bluetooth speaker inserts and accessories like this tablet dock. The look is sleek and best of all?, it allows your backsplash tile to spread the full height without being disrupted or distracted by an outlet. For kitchens including a full-height stone or quartz backsplash this system can really be a fantastic solution!

The painted black cabinets from the bases of the kitchen design are repeated in the taller elements of the kitchen. This looks especially stunning because of the new appliances included from KitchenAid®. A french door counter-depth refrigerator and double wall oven have been built-in to a painted black cabinet surround. The appliances are in the innovative and stylish Black Stainless Steel finish by KitchenAid®. This finish is a true Stainless Steel and the fingerprint-resistant finish creates a matte black look that pairs perfectly with this cabinet choice.
BBlack Stainless Steel appliances by KitchenAid | VillageHomeStores.com

Black Stainless appliances are accented with chrome and Stainless details. This makes them pair well with other metal finishes in a complete design. This kitchen includes a Stainless cooktop and microwave drawer. The kitchen faucet and lighting above the sink are also a brushed golden finish that helps to compliment the stainless texture of the appliances. See another great example of mixed metals including Black Stainless here in a past blog post.

Of course any dream kitchen must include storage wish-list cabinets. Slide-out shelves, post and pans drawers, and a pull-out spice rack are among some of the inserts included in the design. We love how keeping the darker finish on the base cabinets helps to keep the overall space light and airy.

Village Home Stores also offers a full line of custom blinds and shades for your home. This wide new kitchen window has been fit with our Oxford House® “Transitions” shade.  While being operated the wide, horizontal stripes overlap to offer an open or closed look even when the shade is down. The shade is the “Dixie White” finish.

All of this rests on a stunning new Luxury Vinyl Tile (or L.V.T.) from our Fusion Hybrid collection. The gray woodgrain pattern is named “Dutch Pine”. This LVT is installed throughout the great room. See more detailed photos of this kitchen plus some of the other space in this remodeled home here over on our award-winning Houzz page.


When we went to visit this finished kitchen to photograph it we noticed a little dish by the kitchen sink. It has a gold-winged flying pig attached to it. The client quickly said “Oh that? My friends and I always joked I would get the dream kitchen I had been planning in my head for year when pigs fly” Well don’t look now but there is a flying pig in her kitchen because it has happened! Have you seen your dream kitchen on Instagram or Pinterest? How about the cover of a magazine while waiting in a grocery line?

Moline, IL- White Painted Kitchen With Red Accents

This kitchen in Moline, IL is classic in the permanent elements and fun and playful in the accents! We love how this customer has accented this finished space with red! Let’s take a look around the newly remodeled space!

White painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line is arranged in an L-shape layout with a built-in look for the refrigerator across from it. The flat-panel “Prairie” door style is a classic and Transitional choice.  The drawers are a smooth, slab style perfect for the bin-pull hardware. A modern twist on a classic concept is the use of a Stainless Steel farmhouse sink. This single-well model is a sleek looking detail.

The new wall cabinets stretch all the way to the ceiling with a stacked crown molding application. Stacking a crown molding atop a riser or valance allows a very forgiving application for your trim carpenter if the home is older and may have a varied ceiling height. The range wall of cabinetry includes a corner susan cabinet and two angled cabinets to cap off the end. A wide window above the sink provides a lot of great light and plenty of space for two pendant lights.

There are glass door cabinet included in the new kitchen. A white painted finished interior and clear glass inserts provide a great space for displaying items and help to give the kitchen even more of an open look. Don;t forget that our Diode LED undercabinet lighting system can be installed inside of a cabinet too.  Lighting your glass-door cabinets help showcase you displayed items and the overall kitchen perfectly.

Why tile a surface if you can;t show it off? We love the glass subway tile here with a red accent strip. The main 3″ x 6″ subway tile is by Jeffrey Court in the “Haze” color. The red 1″ x 3″ accent tile is from the “Crystile” series by Glazzio in the “Ruby Red” color.
