Quad Cities- Bath Remodel With Custom Locker and Hidden Laundry

Down the hall from this stunning kitchenette we shared recently is a remodeled bathroom packed with storage, function, and style. With a pool out back, this walk-out basement was in need of a large functional bathroom space ready for busy Summertime pool days. The vanity area is gorgeous.

An open shelf below is perfect for stacking extra towels for guests. The furniture look of the Dura Supreme vanity is enhanced by the edge detail on the Cambria counters. Each corner swoops out an adds a details that the light catches. Cambria Quartz in the Torquay design gives the polished look of marble in a durable and non-porous engineered quartz.

With this busy bathroom being so close to the pool, a secondary laundry area was on the wish list. We were able to design an area that hides a stack-able unit right within the bathroom. Hidden pantry front doors aren’t just for pantry areas! And with the Inset door style selected, the doors can roll back with pocket door hardware and allow full access to the laundry.

A custom tiled shower in a bathroom allows you to truly make the most of your space. Plus the look of carrying a tiled floor into a shower helps to make the room seem larger. This look is only made stronger when you pair it with a glass door entry. In this bath we were able to include a full glass wall and even turn the corner with a small section of glass.

12″ x 12″ wall tiles and 3″ x 3″ floor tiles in the shower plus a custom niche for toiletries. Even with a shower this large there was enough space to include a custom cabinet locker area at the bathroom entry. The unit hugs the entire corner all the way to the door. Why stop at the wall switch if you can just include it in the design? We used the clean design and style of our Adorne Series of switches and the look is great. Custom cabinet with outlet on side panel.

An L-shaped bench with beaded panel walls and robe hooks was installed. We stacked crown molding so that the locker bench area stretches all the way to the ceiling. The Chapel Hill doors are inset into the faceframe and the top section of cabinets here are top-hinged. We love the use of frosted glass in the Chestnut Cherry cabinet.

Below the bench is even more storage in drawers. Imagine a busy pool party weekend and each guest getting a section of this locker. A wonderful way to keep the clutter contained. This bathroom space is so beautiful and functional. We love how it turned out.

Quad Cities, IL- A Lower Level Library Full of Details

Village Home Stores doesn’t just design beautiful kitchen and bathroom spaces for your home. Think of ALL of the areas that we can help to make beautiful and customized to your own personal tastes and styles. Take this home study/library for example:
Custom Cherry inset cabinetry by DuraSupreme in a Quad Cities Area home Library. Design and material by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

This beautiful customized space is hidden behind a sliding barn door adjacent to our last featured project. Nothing says sophisticated and studious for a space quite like a rich, cherry woodgrain and custom details. The DuraSupreme cabinetry consists mainly of paneling, trim and shelving but the base cabinets behind the desk are an inset style.

The Chapel Hill door in a Cherry wood stained a “Chestnut” finish, details like a furniture base and added feet to the toespace create interest. The term inset means that the doors sit inside of the cabinet frame instead of overlaying and resting outside of it. This inset style is considered “beaded” inset because of the routed detail around the cabinet frame which houses the doors and drawer fronts.

A Cambria Quartz counter in the “Seagrove” design caps off the back of the desk area. We love the added detail of selecting the Seagrove design that adds the natural-stone look with a veined pattern. A vintage chalkboard adds an upscale schoolhouse style to the space. A touch of old, surrounded by new. The secondary wall of shelving not shown is home to many books and personal items for display (respectfully omitted from this public post). A home library should provide practical storage but also plenty of display space for the user. Two glass-door wall cabinets flank the chalkboard area for more dust-free display space.

Of course baseboards and crown molding can take any project to a more polished and complete look. This library takes it one step further by adding details like decorative wood feet, fluted columns, and carved wooden corbels at the corners (shown below at left). Any added layer allows the light one more edge or curve to catch and highlight the space. Many times customers are concerned so much wood will make a room seem very dark. Layering depths and textures like this helps to keep the look dimensional and highlighted instead of a solid, flat panel of dark wood. Seagrove Cambria Quartz, cherry inset cabinetry and schoohouse decor in a Quad Cities Area home Library. Design and material by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Any completed study space needs wood paneled walls to get the look right. This space includes custom wainscot paneling installed at a chair rail height with a baseboard below. The paint color for the room mimics the chalkboard color and a wingback chair with nailheads completes the look. The only thing missing from the perfect home study space is a roaring fireplace, which because of the rooms location, wasn’t an option. The space still inspires!

Our unique series of adorne lightswitches and outlets give a modern update to an otherwise distracting break in the custom wall paneling. Imagine if bright white plastic outlets were cut into these custom wainscot panels. Wouldn’t that distract from the look? Instead, sleek metallic-look plates frame square outlets.

The same polished “Silver Springs” 12″ x 36″ River Marble floors continue from the kitchenette into the library area. Polished marble and floor-to-ceiling custom cherry shelving give this library a look like no other. This space would look right at home in a well-kept historic estate but we love knowing it is getting great use for this family in the Midwest countryside.

Quad Cities Remodel- The Lower Level Kitchenette of Your Dreams

Perhaps “Kitchenette” isn’t the right term for this feature. It seems so backwards to add “-ette” to a word and somehow make it sound small and adorable… when in fact this is a fully functioning kitchen. If you had a busy Lower Level including a large game room and walkout access to a pool wouldn’t you dream of a kitchen space like this for entertaining? DuraSupreme Cabinetry and Cambria Quartz counters featured in this Quad Cities area kitchen remodel from Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

With home library hidden behind a sliding barn door (more on that in a future post), this kitchen includes a full wall of cabinetry and appliances and a large single-level island. Cabinetry from our DuraSupreme line has been installed in two finishes of the same “Chapel Hill” doorstyle. Take a closer look at the doors and drawers to see that this is an inset cabinet design.  DuraSupreme Cabinetry in inset cherry wood and Chestnut stain featured in this Quad Cities area kitchen remodel from Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

This means that the cabinet doors and drawerfronts have been “inset” into the cabinet faceframe instead of hinged to set in front of the frame. The island is a Cherry wood in the rich, warm Chestnut stain. The kitchen wall of cabinetry is a painted Maple wood in the “Graphite” color. A barn door with glass inserts rolls away to reveal a home office next to this Quad Cities area kitchen remodel from Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

The cabinets reach all the way to the ceiling with the help of a stacked crown molding application. Glass inserts and open shelves help to keep the back wall feeling open and interesting. A tall oven cabinet is home to a KitchenAid wall oven and microwave. The wall oven includes convection features for a faster preheat and a more consistent interior temperature. An induction cooktop is centered in the island countertop.DuraSupreme Cabinetry and KitchenAid appliances featured in this Quad Cities area kitchen remodel from Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

The sink wall also includes a bottom freezer refrigerator also from KitchenAid and a farmsink by Kohler. A rich glossy 12″ x 36″ marble tile floor in the “River Marble” color looks stunning at all times of day. Cambria Quartz counters in the Ella design have been installed for a classic touch. Ella offers the look of a marble counter with all of the no-maintenance and durability benefits of a Quartz counter.

The sink base has been pulled forward and furniture style legs have been added for a great finished look. This sink from Kohler is a large, single-well style with an offset drain. A narrow sill piece of Cambria has been installed on the window ledge to offer a durable and stylish shelf area for plants or display. Glossy “Arctic White” 3″ x 6″ Subway Tile has been installed as a backsplash and behind the floating shelf areas of the main kitchen wall.

The back treatment of the island gives a customized wainscot look but also includes an angled panel area that accents the support bracket and wood apron for the countertop overhang. Our unique series of switches and outlets named Adorne adds interest and an updated look to the wall outlets. With a variety of options and many colors to choose from, there is no reason why you wall outlets ad switches can’t be just as stylish as your tile selections!

Coal Valley, IL- A Master Bathroom Takes “Shape”

In our last feature post we shared a tour of a stylish and sophisticated kitchen remodel. That same home in Coal Valley, IL also includes a remodeled Master Suite area just as stunning! A sliding barn door in the Master Bath opens to reveal a walk-in closet, makeup vanity room, and a beautiful bathroom space.

Just like the kitchen, this bathroom began in a beige setting with a medium Oak vanity. A wall-to-wall installation of vanity and top included a cultured marble vanity top with two integrated bowls.
before-remodel

The new vanity area now includes an inset White painted vanity from our Dura Supreme line. The “Highland” doorstyle is inset into the vanity face frame for a classic and stylish look. White wall paneling has been installed throughout the new bathroom and is divided up to create shapely pattern.

From the inset door edges, to the unique wall sconces, everything makes a statement. We love that the accents of gold from the other areas of the home have made it into this Master Suite.

The wall sconces are mounted directly through the wall-to-wall mirror. This helps keep the bathroom space seem more open and airy by having the maximum amount of mirror available to bounce and reflect light around.

The Honey Gold finish and white fabric shade are right in place with the rest of the materials selected. The squared off corners of the gold frame reflect and create an almost greek key design.

Beneath the mirror and sconces sits a gorgeous new vanity top. Instead of a double bowl vanity, a single offset layout has been installed. This allows for more countertop space and allows the pattern of Cambria® Quartz “Brittanicca” to take center stage. A clean and stylish blend of whites and grays, this quartz has a natural marble look with the maintenance-free perks Cambria® offers. The vanity top has a “Large Ogee Edge” applied.

With a vanity area that stunning how could a shower still grab your attention? Well… we removed the shower curtain to take a few photos so you can get the full wow-factor!

We were correct about that wow-factor weren’t we? Using a dark gray grout here helps to enhance the geometric pattern of the tile installation. This tile by Florida Tile is appropriately named “Hex” is a glossy white hexagon pattern.

Proof that you do not  need a mosaic of colors to make a bold statement with tile, this shower is amazing! A mix of two shapes of the same colored tile installed in a modern look. We love the stacked install on these long, horizontal tiles.

One the wall opposite the shower head is a custom tiled niche area. Inside of that niche the same “Hex” tile has been used and glass shelves allow light to pass through. Including a custom shelf or niche is always helpful when planning a tiled shower.

Many times custom tiled showers include a tiled base for the floor. This customer wanted to avoid grout lines to be cleans on the floor and instead chose a stylish shower base custom made for her by the Onyx Collection. This base is poured in Kansas and available in many colors and can be customized to even the strangest of shapes. A textured pattern is included in the base for added traction. The color selected for this bathroom is named “Constellation” and it is a great compliment to the dark gray grout.

Hazelwood Homes- An Inset Instant Classic in Geneseo, IL

How can something so new already be an instant classic? Even though this Geneseo, IL home built recently by Hazelwood Homes is brand new, the look is classic. How do you achieve classic status right away? By selecting details and materials that all lend themselves to a polished, classic look without a date or trend attached to it. Take a look and see what we mean:
Kitchen in a home built by Hazelwood Homes including Dura Supreme inset cabinets and Cambria counters. | VillageHomeStores.com

Nothing about this finished space waves a flag with a year or a single trend on it. There is nothing more universally classic than a clean, white painted kitchen. With tastes and trends varying all across the country a white painted kitchen remains something we can all agree on. This Geneseo, IL family takes the look to the next level by selecting added details you will love.
White inset doors and subway tile for a classic modern farmhouse look. Expert design and material selection for your new home. | VillageHomeStores.com

Painted white cabinetry from our Dura Supreme line in the “Arcadia” door and inset construction is paired with a classic white 3″ x 6″ subway tile backsplash. The tile is from our Rittenhouse line and the “Arctic White” color is in a soft matte finish. The hardwood flooring in this great room space is gorgeous. Casa Bella’s “Baroque Oak” series in the “Marche” finish has such a depth of colors and the look is beautiful. Two countertop materials have been included in this kitchen design. The main perimeter of the kitchen has Cambria Quartz counters in the Torquay design. The polished quartz tops are a great contrast to the matte finish wall tiles. A Stainless Steel appliance suite from our KitchenAid® line looks right at home in the space. This 36″ KitchenAid® Dual Fuel 6-burner range is a hard-working investment for this kitchen.

With 5.1 cu. ft. total capacity and EasyConvect™ Conversion features, this range is commercial in style but easy to use. The immediate control of a gas cooktop and the consistent and efficient use of convection cooking. This range is enviable to any serious home chef but not intimidating to frozen pizza connoisseurs. Two pendants from the Feiss “Harrow” series hang above the large kitchen island. The Oil Rubbed Bronze finish is a great compliment to the dark granite top below and seeded glass gives a New Traditional look to a classic style.

The main focal point of this kitchen is the island itself. In a close second for your attention is the range and hood wall of cabinetry. A wood hood has been ordered from Dura Supreme to match the surrounding cabinetry. A beautiful mantle shelf has been applied for a classic detail and location for seasonal decor, leaning artwork, or left clear as shown.

A bold eye-catching contrast to the white kitchen is found in the large island counter. A “Black Pearl” granite top is large in size and includes an undermounted farm sink. This dark top is a bold statement but take note of another material selection detail in the granite’s finish… it isn’t polished! In place of a dark, high-gloss polished granite top the “brushed” finish has been selected. This allows the natural stone to give the look of a soapstone or slate style and texture. The installed look is softer and less formal in appearance. A slight arc has been included on the overhang of the island. This end is now ready to accommodate counter-height stools for seating in the new kitchen.

A detail that may go unnoticed at first glance is the style of cabinetry in this kitchen. The doors themselves are a very transitional flat-panel construction.  The detail we are speaking of is how they are not resting atop of the cabinet face frame. Instead these cabinets have been ordered in an “inset” construction. This look has been around as long as cabinet furniture-making has been. Many old homes include built-in cabinets with this same inset door concept. The next time you are near an antique piece of furniture there is a very high chance that you will find the doors are also inset. The cabinet and door all sits flush with the frame of the cabinet and this design choice takes a basic white kitchen and transforms it into an instant classic! Inset cabinetry can be ordered with a hidden hinge (like shown here) or an exposed barrel hinge. Click here to see a past kitchen feature on the blog that showcases the exposed hinge look on an inset door.

Did you know that according to a recent Houzz survey on 2017 trends in the industry we spend nearly 3 hours a day on average in our kitchens? Yes we are socializing and entertaining but we are also many times reading, working from home, or even just watching TV. In a kitchen this stunning it would be a shame to clutter up the countertops with a TV. That is why a space was designated for a small television right above the refrigerator. With this kitchen already including inset doors, adding pocket door hardware that allows the doors to roll into the cabinet box makes the screen visible from anywhere in the kitchen without a door to block the view.
