Bluegrass, Iowa Kitchen Remodel With Warm Woods and Black & Gold Accents

Maple kitchen with gold lighting and Village Home Stores logo.

The warmth of a wood stained kitchen is always an inviting look for a design. We absolutely love how these Bluegrass, Iowa clients took their modern eclectic tastes and translated them with their designer at Village Home Stores into a kitchen. This new design suites the style of the home while still reflecting an updated look. Maple Dura Supreme Cabinetry in the “Kendall” door and “Clove” stain have been accented with a “Black” accent paint on the edges and details.

The mix of warm woods and views of the Iowa countryside out of the windows evoke a connection with nature. Another wonderful natural connection of bringing the outdoors in is the use of natural stone countertops. Natural stone is a fantastic surface choice and a material that is timeless and rich in history. In this kitchen we installed Granite counters in the Makala Bay color.

As much as quartz companies can attempt it, never can you recreate the natural character and unique opportunity you have to invest in natural stone for your project. Having a large island top like this is a great way to showcase the natural variations in colors, materials, and veining that natural stones offer. A fun and exciting step in the natural stone selection process with your Village Home Stores designer is the option to visit the Epic Stone warehouse in Davenport to hand-select your stone slabs. Learn more about this local selection process and get directions and details for Epic Stone LLC here in a past blog post.

This kitchen design includes a corner sink with granite plant shelf that looks out two windows. Ask a Village designer if your space allows for a corner sink design. We love the lighting selections made for this kitchen. The pendant light fixture above the kitchen sink makes a statement without blocking the light and view outside. Textured seedy glass on this “Stone” pendant light from Capital Lighting adds texture and style to the space.

The kitchen includes accents of dark bronze, matte black, and even some brushed gold. The cabinet hardware is the “Highland Ridge” series from our Amerock line. Black appliances we also used in this design and they perfectly complement the Black painted accent glaze on the surrounding cabinet doors and drawers.

With the natural granite counters as a focal point of the overall look, a more subtle wall tile was desired. We installed 3″ x 6″ “Highland Park” Subway Tiles in the Antique White color to compliment the background colors of the granite slabs. If you would like to see a full album of photos from this finished remodel, click here to see it on our Houzz profile. The full wall of tile look so clean because we tucked all of the wall switches and outlets up underneath the cabinetry!

A single-step way to update any space is by changing out the light fixture! As we were working on this kitchen remodel we also selected new light fixtures for other areas of the home. We love the new dinette light that was selected just off the kitchen. This modern take on a classic brass chandelier compliments the home and the new kitchen style. The “Zander” light by Capital Lighting (shown below) is available in many sizes.

Mixed metals is a continued trend for all home interior categories. We see it in kitchen designs, home accessories, and fixtures like lighting. The formal dining room in this home now has the “Kearney” 5 light chandelier from our Savoy House line. This fixture is a blend of Vintage Black and Warm Brass finishes. Clean lines and great design are always in style!

Marble look quartz in the Calacatta Classique color is such a classic and transitional choice. Marble has proven for centuries that it will never go out of style. Quartz counters in a bathroom are an ideal choice. Here you get the look of marble, but no worries if anything spills or leaks onto the tops. Quartz is also heat resistant so hair appliances won’t scorch or melt the surface if they come in contact with it. The shower area also received an updated look:Who remodels bathroom in the Quad Cities? We do! Bathroom remodel with new shower entry in Bettendorf, Iowa. Remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

What a difference a new shower door system can make! From heavy, brass framework, to a more open and airy look, the new shower area seems larger without changing in size at all. And now for the main event: the double vanity area. Any Master Bath with two users can always plead it’s case for having two vanity sinks. But this bathroom has us convinced that the pendant lighting trend in bathrooms is also a great choice! We love the use of two framed mirrors and a light above each bowl area.

Vanity cabinetry from our Dura Supreme line in the “Kendall” door and painted “Latte” finish creates a soothing neutral color choice. Latte may be a beige paint at first glance, but when browsing finish selections it really falls within the warm white/taupe category. Selecting a lighter neutral paint cabinet to pair with a marble look top can be a great way to keep a space seem smaller. There are still so many varieties of colors in the veining of a marble top, and of course flooring to tie into the overall look. You don’t need a dark paint or stain for a rich look. Kichler Downtown series pendants in a Quad Cities Bathroom Remodeled by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

This bathroom feature also brought a fun detail to our attention. How versatile the Downtown Series of lighting by Kichler is! These same pendants hang in our showroom above a kitchen island display.
