New Home With Gray and Black Painted Kitchen and Farmhouse Inspiration in Every Room

This Spring we have just felt so overwhelmed with appreciation for our customers and our builder relationships. Your support of Village Home Stores has kept our hearts so darn full while our showroom has had to be more empty. There are still so many new homes going up throughout the Quad Cities region. It is such an honor to work with so many area builders to put our design and products into their work. Our new home customers find that an appointment and the short drive to our one-stop-shop saves them time and money. Much of the process can even be done online through our login system. Together we can build a team of experts from each department for new home clients to help to create fully realized finished spaces. A great example is this Kerkhoff Homes property that just finished up in Bettendorf Iowa. Check out this dream kitchen!

We wanted to take some time to show you around the many highlights from this project beginning with a tour of the open-concept great room kitchen. The element that is first to grab your attention in the kitchen is the tiled backsplash area on the range wall. The main backsplash tile throughout the kitchen and dry bar area is a 1″x4″ Tundra Gray by Epic Stone. It is accented with a shimmering wide stripe of metal mosaic that cascades from ceiling to cooktop. This Falling Stars Aluminum Mix series in the Platinum Moon color is from our Glazzio Tile line. It blends mixed metallic finishes in grays and silvers.

This tile looks so perfectly at home surrounded by the “Fog” painted Koch cabinetry and Stainless Steel appliance package. A pot filler faucet in matte black has also been installed on the accent tile. This adds function and style to the cooking zone. The star of the kitchen appliances in this new home is the 48″ wide KitchenAid commercial style range. For serious home chefs, curious future home chefs, or households who entertain large groups, this range is a dream! 4′ wide with two oven cavities, this is a dual fuel model range. That means that you get the accuracy and constancy of an electric bake or broil in the ovens and the immediate control of a gas cooktop. Shop dual fuel ranges here at villagehomestores.com

Atop that double oven is 4′ of exceptional cooktop surface. A combined 6 gas burners and an integrated griddle. A continuous grate system over the burners allow a user to move pans of all sizes from one location to another. It also makes a great wide surface for cooling items from the oven. This is illustrated below by “Lord Stanley” who is monitoring the status of some cookies cooling.

The cabinetry in this Bettendorf kitchen is from our Koch Classic line in the best-selling Savannah doorstyle. This flat-panel door is the perfect Transitional selection that can work for many tastes. It can be ordered in painted and stained finishes. Shown here with the painted light gray “Fog” finish on the perimeter and “Black” paint on the kitchen island. The Fog paint is a wonderful neutral finish option for spaces that have a lot of whites and want a subtle compliment.

Our most requested feature for new home kitchen designs is a hidden pantry (also modeled here by Lord Stanley who just wanted to make sure we weren’t after his treats). We are able to order a matching tall cabinet front with no bottom rail from our cabinet companies. This allows you to create an entrance that looks like a normal pantry, but opens to reveal a hidden walk-in space. Want to see more examples of hidden pantries? Check out this storage solutions board on our Pinterest page!

Fresh and frozen food storage is found on the other wall of the kitchen design. We surrounded a counter-depth French Door refrigerator with a deep upper cabinet and tall end panels. This gives a built in and clean finished look. Concerned about losing storage space with a counter depth model? You no longer have to be! This counter-depth KitchenAid model is the largest capacity counter-depth refrigerator in its class! It has a slide-away split shelf, self-close crispers, and a custom temperature pantry drawer.

Selecting lighting for an entire new home can be overwhelming to do on your own. Thank goodness we have a lighting expert on staff who is dedicated to working for all of our new home customers! Setting up an appointment with our lighting department allows us to sit down with you, your plan, and your budget. In that first appointment we can help determine your personal style and tastes and begin to curate an estimate for you through our online login program. Don’t forget that our new home customers can also qualify for our Lighting Bundle Program at Village.

In this great room we provided three medium-sized pendants for above the kitchen island, a dinette light, and ceiling fans. Working with a lighting expert allows you to create a lighting plan using multiple brands and styles that compliment each other. This is so much better for a finished result than just buying a whole series of the same lighting in varied sizes. We love the jar shape of the Uttermost “Lansing” island pendants and the complimenting finishes in a difference shape and style for the dinette area just beyond the kitchen.

Below the pendant lights and right at the center of all kitchen activity is the kitchen sink. A farmhouse style apron sink has become another staple feature for many styles of homes. Here we have created the perfect prep and cleanup space by including a pull out waste basket to the right of the sink, and a KitchenAid dishwasher to the left. Quiet at just 39 decibels (normal conversation is about 50), you can run this dishwasher any time of day or night without disrupting music or television use in the great room.

The countertop surfaces in this kitchen are a marble-look engineered quartz surface called “Calacatta Laza”. This color is a fantastic marble fake-out in a durable and foodsafe surface. We are learning now more that ever that it is important to help reduce the spread of germs and bacteria within your home. Quartz countertop surfaces are non-porous so they will not absorb stains, cleaners, or any other “ickies” that may be on these cute paws below. Quartz surfaces can be cleaned with any non-abrasive cleaners and many times our customers just use mild soap and water.

Let’s head to the bar to celebrate and toast this new home! The same quartz surface and “Fog” painted cabinetry was installed as an extension to the kitchen in a dry bar area. Here we included a finished cabinet interior and glass doors for the upper cabinets and a built-in space below for beverage coolers. The result is a large built in bar area that keeps a light, airy, and inviting feel for use.

The two under counter appliances built in are stylish and super functional. With a counter-depth refrigerator as the main kitchen fridge, these glass-front models allow for added beverage storage outside of needing to use the main fridge. On the left is a wine cellar unit with two temperature zones within. On the right is a glass-front undercounter refrigerator. Glass-front bar fridges are fantastic for households who entertain because you have a clear way-finding clue day and night for guests to serve themselves without feeling sneaky trying to find the drinks.

And while “Lord Stanley” is the guardian of the pantry in this house, it looks like “Cy” here is the bouncer for this bar! This entire new home is stunning and fit with many high end products. We wanted to take a moment to point out the flooring in these spaces. Would you believe this ISN’T real hardwood? In photos and even in person it will fool you! This is actually a floating luxury vinyl plank floor. We wanted to point out that many of our new home customers are selecting luxury vinyl planks and tiles and the look and performance is still high end!

The great room, kitchen, foyer, study, dining room, sunroom, and stairway landings are all installed in the Adventure II series “Rain Forest” vinyl plank from our Engineered Floors line. Vinyl planks come in such a wide variety of sizes, colors, and even textures. Village Home Stores has a lot of options for your new or existing home in this flooring category. You will also be delighted for the added piece of mind with the warranties on many of these vinyl planks. Looking for a flooring surface for your active household that is pet-friendly, durable, and even waterproof? Then reach out to us for a quote today. We also provided wall tile for this home in the showers, mentioned kitchen, and the two textured statement walls shown below.

The fireplace wall and powder room vanity wall each are fit with a ledger tile. This same “Siberian White Honed Ledger” is installed horizontally as a fireplace surround and then vertically in the powder room. A pair of a smaller version of the kitchen island pendants are hung in the powder room. The light cast onto this tile looks so amazing! Texture and dimension in a neutral and classic material. And speaking of texture, check out this stunning tray ceiling in the master bedroom!

There is something to love in every room of this new home. The laundry room in this Kerkhoff Homes new build is large and perfectly located in the plan. Near the active great room space but out of sight, it is easy to stay on task with laundry throughout the day. And with the connected features of this smart Maytag front load laundry pair, it is even easier to stay on task. You can use the app to monitor and control features when you’re away from home or just in another room. The connected laundry allows you to receive notifications and alerts when the load is done. And any Maytag customer can appreciate that you can even avoid some service calls by connecting your appliance to the app.

Clean and White Laundry Room and Master Bath Inspo!

We all fell in love with the kitchen feature from this home a few weeks ago, and now we wanted to give you a peek at the laundry and master bath as well. Nothing inspires crisp clean laundry days quite like a bright white laundry room. This Bettendorf, Iowa home includes a dream laundry space with cabinetry from our Koch Classic line. The clean lines of the Bristol door are painted in an “Ivory White” finish.

With a laundry space like this, we wouldn’t mind laundry duty! Natural light pours in from a window on the end and a single-wall layout of cabinetry and counter space extends most of the length of the room. Many new and remodel projects we work on have the laundry located near the main living spaces of the home. Gone are the days of descending down into a basement or a closet to do the laundry. Now our customers seek a centrally-located laundry area that can make keeping up with laundry tasks more enjoyable and accessible.

A folding counter is included with space below for laundry basket storage. We love the use of a rolling laundry cart here for style and function. This cart can be rolled right up to the front-load machines. The counter surface in this laundry room is an engineered quartz named “Fossil Gray”. Quartz is a durable and sleek surface ideal for a laundry/utility space like this on the main level of a home. This laundry sink and countertop is ready for any task messy or clean.

If your laundry room design has room for it, we always prefer to include a sink in the layout. Having a sink like this (see below) can let you soak and rinse items and also gives you a place to wash your hands. Because these counters are a quartz surface, we were able to include an under-mounted sink. Now the countertop can be wiped clean easily. The faucet for this sink is mounted on a specific area of the sink layout. Your designer from Village Home Stores will partner with our stone fabrication team to make sure the correct sink and faucet information gets included in the fabrication and installation of your top.

Not every item you wash ends up in the dryer. In fact, the newer high-efficiency model washers spin out so well that most items can avoid a heated dry cycle altogether with a little hanging time. This laundry room layout includes a stylish hanging rod above the folding and sink countertop. The builder installed a shelf and trimmed it out with the crown molding. The look is very nice and certainly beats the look of a last-minute clothes rod install.

So what’s new in Maytag laundry? Well a LOT! We have seen so much change in the last decade with features, finishes, water use, and more. Top-load and front-load laundry models are now fit with so many great features and Maytag offers a wide range of price-points and capacity for your household. Plus every Maytag washing machine comes with a 10 Year Warranty on the motor and wash basket! Maytag laundry products are proudly made in the USA. Washing machines are made in Clyde, Ohio and Maytag Dryers are made in Marion, Ohio.

Maytag has become well known for building dependable, high-performance machines. Of course new features like pre-loaded detergent options, and smart connected features are great. But rest assured that the focus of anything new coming out of those Ohio factories is being built to perform well and last as long as possible. Ask our expert appliance team about the difference between top load and front load washing and what models may be best for your household.

To see more of this laundry room visit the project here on our Houzz page. We also designed a serene and stylish master bathroom in this Bettendorf home. The same Bristol door and “Ivory” paint was used for the cabinetry. Our designer laid out a pattern of drawer bases and sink bases to fill this vanity wall with storage and two vanity sinks.

Across from the vanity wall is a custom tiled shower and stylish tub. Calacatta tile in a variety of sizes and shapes make up the floor and wall surfaces in this space. The best feature of this tile is one you can’t see. These tile floors have a Schluter Ditra-Heat system installed beneath them. And what’s better than heated tile floors? Heated tile floors on a timer so they are all ready for you in the morning!

Marble look engineered quartz tops in the “Calacatta Verona” design will look great for many years to come as the vanity tops. Quartz surfaces clean up easy give the look of a marble in a nonporous surface. Two rectangle undermount vanity sinks are installed in this master bath and a backsplash and two end splashes complete the look.

Ivory White Kitchen With Black Accents and Viking Appliances

There is a reason why painted white kitchens have remained a best-selling choice in our industry for so many years. They offer a timeless look and are right at home in many different styles of spaces. When you build a home there are so many selections to be made. With the rise of “open concept” layouts, the pressure is on to create a cohesive space of the kitchen, dining, and living spaces of a home. A great way to allow yourself unlimited options for furnishings in these spaces is to select a neutral painted kitchen cabinet as a backdrop. This beautiful new home built by Kerkhoff Homes LLC of the Quad Cities has a neutral kitchen design that allows every element to be showcased.

Painted “Ivory” white cabinetry from our Koch Classic line is installed as the perimeter cabinetry in this kitchen design. A flat-panel “Bristol” door and Q Quartz “Calacatta Verona” countertops create a gallery effect allowing the appliances and lighting to stand out and be noticed in the completed design. A great example of this is the Kichler “Moorgate” linear light that hangs above the kitchen island. A stunning combination of matte black, brass, and glass. The look is great!

That black detail is also carried into the accent paint on the kitchen island cabinetry in the same “Bristol” doorstyle. The dark painted island anchors to the flooring and keeps the remainder of the kitchen feeling open and airy. On one wall of the kitchen design you find two tall pantry cabinets and a built-in Stainless Steel refrigerator. Grouping these elements together in one location keeps the rest of the kitchen open.

Including the refrigerator in this bank of pantry cabinets also helps to keep the scale of the large built-in unit to seem more at place. This Viking built-in is a 42″ wide side x side Quiet Cool model. Did you know that Village Home Stores is home to the largest Viking Range showroom space in the region? We are! We also are your expert Viking Range appliance service team.

One of the benefits of choosing Viking for your high-end appliance package is that you can build a complete appliance package all within the Viking brand. That means your badges, handles, finish, and control panel details will all marry to each other seamlessly. Speaking of handles, we love the contrast of cabinet hardware in this kitchen design. The Ivory cabinetry has a dark Amerock handle in a “Black Bronze” finish and the Black island cabinetry has a “Gilded Bronze” finish.

On the other wall of the kitchen design you find the cooking zone. A large commercial style range and a custom wood range hood cabinet above. Our kitchen design team can work with you to design the perfect hood design for your space. To get the best look and price for our customer, we actually had this hood designed and built by our custom Amish cabinetry line.

We then had the hood custom painted to match the kitchen cabinetry for a seamless look. Subway tile would look right at home in this design but we love the added texture from the tile selected here. A 3″ x 6″ Rittenhouse subway tile in “Arctic White” is installed with a beveled tile edge. This adds texture from the shadowing and keeps with the tone-on-tone concept of the kitchen design.

Having that complete appliance package from Viking is a wonderful thing, but of course Viking is known for their dynamic cooking appliances. This Viking® Professional 5 Series 48″ Pro Style Gas Range in Stainless Steel has 6.1 cu. ft. total capacity in the two ovens. An infrared broiler locks in all the savory juices of even the thickest porterhouse with the intense heat searing meats and fish locking in juices. Yum!

On top of this range you find eight burners each with the Pro-Sealed burner system. Up to 18,500 BTUs and infinite settings of easy-to-clean high performance sealed burners. A combination of this unique patented burner and surface design provides clean-ability plus superior performance at any temperature setting.

A great lighting plan is a key element to any successful design. This great room is an incredible example of that goal achieved! The kitchen itself is lit by spaced can lighting, that great island light, and undercabinet lighting. We can’t stress it enough how important undercabinet lighting is in a kitchen. Please please please include it within your project budget. We have never had a customer regret that decision. In fact, it is usually among the first things mentioned when we ask what they love about their finished space.

Within sight of the kitchen there are many other light fixtures. Just because you have a need for many fixtures all in one space DOESN’T mean they all have to be from the same page in a lighting catalog! That’s why we have our expert lighting staff on hand to help you select the perfect grouping of lights. This room combines many brands and styles into one curated collection. The dining area is at the end of the kitchen and a nook/sunroom is found just beyond that.

The dining area is lit by a 6-light chandelier in a black finish. This is the “Monroe” light from our Golden Lighting line. Did you know that you can shop our lighting options online at anytime? Just head here and shop the many options we have for you! You can save some of your favorites and reach out to our team to have them help you find the right price and style for what you are looking for. Our lighting customers have found over the years that purchasing from a lighting showroom is the best way to insure that you have the right style and size of fixture and will have everything you need on hand when you are ready to install it.

We love the interesting shadows that the sunroom/nook light casts throughout the day. This caged style of a semi-flush pendant is a combination of black and brass finishes and is named “Aldergate” from our Kichler line. If you love this light, you should also check out the wall sconces, tall foyer fixture, and other pendant sizes available.

Kerkhoff Homes- An Award-Winning Parade Home Kitchen

Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops. Kitchen design and materials by Village Home Stores for Kerkhoff Homes in the Quad Cities.

Congratulations to Kerkhoff Homes for winning one of the awards (2018 Best Home in the $639,000-$665,000 price range category) during the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Fall Parade of Homes! We were thrilled to have our design and products throughout TWO of the Kerkhoff homes this parade season so we wanted to feature one this week on the blog. The kitchen in this home is stunning. An open layout, a custom range hood, and so many great finish selections. Take a look! White perimeter and accent gray island kitchen design in Bettendorf, Iowa. Home staged by Elements Design.

Great Room kitchen layouts should always be open and inviting. By selecting the right surfaces and materials, you also can make a space feel spacious and airy like this kitchen. The kitchen layout in this Bettendorf home is an L-shape perimeter with a large single level island. The cabinetry is the Prairie door in a painted “Ivory” finish from our Koch Classic line.Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops. Kitchen design and materials by Village Home Stores for Kerkhoff Homes in the Quad Cities. | villagehomestores.com

The kitchen island has an overhang extending off the back for added counter-height seating. There is also a casual dining space adjacent to the kitchen. The star of this kitchen is most certainly the custom hood we created with this builder. A wood hood was built to match the cabinetry of the kitchen perimeter with a Broan blower insert housed within it. Faux metallic detail on a custom wood range hood. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Kerkhoff Homes. | villagehomestores.com

But we didn’t just build a custom wood hood… we took it one step further. A local artist added a faux metallic finish to the lower lip and top rail of the hood giving the illusion of an old metal hood. Even seeing the paint detail up close you will be fooled into thinking it is the real deal!Metallic faux finish detail in a kitchen by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Below the feature hood is a gas range ready to be put to any task! This front-control gas range has five burners on top and convection features in the oven. Flawless cooking results thanks to Even-Heat™ True Convection; the unique bow-tie design and convection fan in the back of the unit ensure the inside of the entire oven is heated to, and stays at, the perfect temperature. This range also features a Steam Rack that offers the ability to add additional moisture to the inside of the oven, enhancing cooking results.

The French Door refrigerator is the focal point of the other wall of the kitchen. 20 cubic foot of storage capacity and a counter-depth design make it functional in many ways. The ExtendFresh™ Temperature Management System and Produce Preserver help keep food fresh. LED lighting throughout the refrigerator makes food easy to find on every level.KitchenAid Stainless Steel appliances in a Bettendorf, Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

“But there is no water and ice in the fridge” you say? Yes there is! The filtered water dispenser is hidden on the interior of the counterdepth model and an icemaker is in the lower freezer. The kitchen itself includes plenty of storage space within the kitchen cabinets, plus there is a walk-in pantry on the range wall. Cabinet storage and fresh food storage are the main tasks for this section of the kitchen L-shape. As well as a lengthy section of countertop surface for food prep, service, and loading and unloading the refrigerator. Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops. | villagehomestores.com

A Sharp microwave drawer is also found on this wall of the kitchen. Kitchen microwave drawers are past the “occasional” spotting and have entered into the “expected” category in our area. They are a great look AND functional solution to the microwave needs in busy kitchens. 

Any busy kitchen will need a high-performance dishwasher and this KitchenAid one is ready to be put to work! This one is quiet at just 46 d.b.a (normal conversation levels are around 50), and the ProWash cycle is ready for even the toughest loads. Shop our entire catalog of appliances here on our website. The dishwasher is located on the end of the kitchen island next to the kitchen sink. KitchenAid Stainless Steel dishwasher in a Bettendorf, Iowa home. | villagehomestores.com

The kitchen island is also from our Koch Classic line of cabinetry in the same Prairie door. A Hickory wood has been stained with a warm gray stain named “Stone”. A sinkbase, pull out trash basket, and stack of drawers complete the island cabinet configuration. 

Keeping with bright and light finishes, a glossy engineered quartz countertop was installed. Our Q-Quartz line in the color named “Calacatta Laza” is a classic and sophisticated choice. Bright whites blend with ivory and neutral beige veining. A glossy finish is reflective and beautiful. Once installed, quartz has little to no maintenance (yes you still have to wipe it clean). Quartz is also non-porous and foodsafe making it an ideal kitchen surface.

Above the kitchen island hang two glass pendant lights. A great way to give a space a more airy and light look is to use glass or mirror. These pendants from our Feiss Lighting line are named “Zola” and they anchor the island scale and shape but don’t weigh down the space with a dark finish. Instead, you can see through them to that great custom hood design! Shop our lighting catalogs here on our websiteGlass pendant lighting hangs above a kitchen island in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.
