Our main goal for the Quad Cities Home Show is for you to have the opportunity to meet our team and ask us questions in person. Building or remodeling a home is a big deal and we want you to work with a team you are comfortable with. Stop by and see if Village and the Village process is right for you. Our process at Village Home Stores is in place for you to get a fair and accurate estimate in a timely way. If you are curious about what these steps are or where to even begin, just stop by and say hello. If you come to see us this weekend be sure to ask a Village team member about what Home Show Exclusive specials we are running.

In our 2019 booth we introduced a brand new full-access cabinet line named WynnBrooke. We are very excited to roll out this new option for our customers and this “Frost” White display will soon be installed in our conference room at the store. You can learn more about this cabinet line here on their website. We also showcased some DIY stick-on wall planks installed in our booth. This great product that can be used for so many fun projects. We covered the back wall surface of our booth in the “Pewter” wall plank adding floating shelves and our LED back-lit sign.

Our Home Show booth included new and exciting product launches like the connected appliances Whirlpool has introduced recently. What is a “connected range” and how can voice commands and scan-to-cook features make your life easier? We would LOVE to answer those questions for you. The Black Stainless connected range we brought to the home show is now back in our appliance showroom. Our expert sales team will explain all of the great features and benefits these “smart” appliances have to offer.

“We have a lot of fun every year at the Home Show. We try and make our booth open, inviting, and exciting. This show is our opportunity to invite guests into our booth to meet our team and get all of their questions answered about our store and our process”

-Elizabeth Round, Village Team Member

This year we installed a lighting grouping that focused on some of the current trends we are seeing in finish and style. “Gold” finishes are definately back in style but the new take on this trend is subtle, brushed, and can be blended with other metals and finishes well. We have seen lighting trends shift from a Farmhouse style into a more Coastal look. We had a lot of interest in the weathered, wooden-beaded chandelier from our booth.

We included two engineered quartz countertops in our cabinet displays this year. We answered so many questions about countertop surfaces and their differences from guests who visited us. The large kitchen island we displayed included one of our promotional-priced quartz surfaces named “Rolling Fog” (shown below on left with Ogee Edge). Learn more about our 2019 Quartz promotion here in a past blog post.

The back wall of our booth had a stunning statement quartz surface from our Cambria Quartz line. The Skara Brae design (shown above on right) blends on-trend grays and whites in an innovative natural-stone lookalike pattern. This series of quartz from Cambria offers you the look of a marble pattern with the maintenance-free piece of mind you get by investing in quartz surfaces.
