Advance Homes Quad Cities- Gray Stained Hickory Kitchen

As we spend this upcoming week prepping our booth for the Quad Cities Builders and Remodelers Home Show, we thought it would be fitting to make our next featured project a new home kitchen. Village Home Stores has become well known to be your expert remodeling team… but did you know we also partner with incredible local builders to create amazing spaces in new homes? We are thrilled to have provided cabinetry and lighting for this home recently built by Advance Homes of the Quad Cities. The kitchen is truly breathtaking!

With a Matte Black painted kitchen island and Hickory cabinetry on the perimeter, this kitchen gives a rustic and restoration feel but in a more tailored and sophisticated way. The single-level kitchen island has access to storage all around it and an overhang on two sides allows for counter-height seating for many guests. The same “Bristol” doorstyle is used on the Maple painted island and the main Hickory kitchen cabinetry. The cabinets in this kitchen are from our Koch Classic Cabinetry line and the rich, smooth Hickory has been stained a warm gray named “Stone”. Look at how many tones and values of the hickory wood and stain come through on the cabinetry. Hickory with a “Stone” stain is a great look that suites many styles and tastes.

Walk-through pantry fronts are available from Koch Cabinetry to help create the look of a large pantry cabinet with the hidden reveal of a full walk-in space. Many of our customers building in the Quad Cities area request a design that includes one of these pantry fronts. In this kitchen it is located in the corner. Our cabinet designer has allowed this pantry front and side panels to reach all the way to the ceiling for a great finished look. The lighting for this home was also from Village Home Stores. We have an absolute crush on this island fixture the customer selected with our team!

This Alanna 6-light pendant measures 54″ long and 14″ wide. Selecting the right lighting above a kitchen island is all about scale and design. In this kitchen a large, single fixture is used. With the open design to the light, it keeps the finished look open and airy. This light is from our ELK line and the restoration style fixture is an Oil Rubbed Bronze finish. Don’t forget that you can shop our complete lighting catalog online, anytime here at villagehomestores.com/lighting . When you are building a home with us, we will provide you with a lighting login to our website. Once logged in you can collaborate with our new home lighting team selecting fixtures and viewing your estimates.

We repeated the same cabinetry from the kitchen in a nearby dry bar area. Here we have included base door and drawer cabinets and a space for a glass-front beverage cooler. In the wall cabinet design there is a center cabinet with doors prepped for glass. An X style mullion design adds a great detail. In place of glass, we have added antiqued mirror inserts. This is a interesting look and allows you to have maximum storage that doesn’t have to be styled for display inside. Down the front hall from this dry bar area is the front entry where we included a great lantern-shaped foyer light.

The “Blacksmith” lantern from Sea Gull Lighting gives the suggestion of traditional style with the shape in a more updated and transitional style by keeping just a wire open frame. Each of the bathrooms in the home we also provided cabinetry, vanity tops, and lighting for. The main bathroom (shown below) includes a new trend of surrounding a framed mirror with two pendants. The “Gramercy” pendants from ELK make a unique statement in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

The Hickory “Stone” cabinetry is repeated from the kitchen in this bath and a cultured marble vanity top from our Onyx Collection completes the look. In the master bathroom, a “Black” paint is used on the double bowl vanity. We love how this builder added an outlet on the end of the bath vanity. This keeps the wall clear and helps to keep the focus on the beautiful framed mirrors and vanity lights. A bright Chrome finish of these Feiss vanity lights help to create a contrast to the dark cabinet.

Hazelwood Homes- White Painted Kitchen With Glaze and Black Island

Our first featured kitchen of the year is in a brand new home built in Geneseo, IL by the team at Hazelwood Homes. This space is a white painted kitchen with an applied glaze and a black painted accent island. It also includes quartz counters, an incredible flooring choice, and a Stainless Steel appliance package. We work closely with our new construction clients to build a team of experts from each department of our store needed. We are all one team working along with you to reach one vision. That way the time spent working on your project in and out of the Village Home Stores showroom is spent wisely. We value your time and we want to see you happy in your new home with the selections you have made from us. The process of building a home can be overwhelming but we do our best to make it fun an exciting. No matter if you are building, remodeling, or just browsing our blog for ideas, there are a lot of great material and design details in this space so let’s jump right in.

What a beautiful space! Selecting white kitchen cabinetry in a great room kitchen setting is always a wonderful choice to keep the entire open concept light and airy. It is a classic cabinet finish that has remained on home magazines covers for years and years. This kitchen space takes a classic look to a whole new level though with added details and material choices that keep it functional and very eye-catching. Beginning with the statement accent island in the center of the kitchen.

This single-level kitchen island includes storage on three sides, outlets on each end, and an overhang for counter-height seating. A gradual, curved radius has been applied to that overhang to soften the look. This island is the best area to showcase the countertop selection for the kitchen. The “Summerhill” design from Cambria Quartz is as durable as it is gorgeous. A blend of expertly curated neutral quartz colors makes it work with so many styles and material combinations. Cambria’s innovative fabrication process even adds a natural looking veining to the slabs. This gives you the look of natural stone with a control of color. It is also an incredibly durable product and perfect surface for any active kitchen. Learn more about Cambria Quartz here in a past blog post.

Above is a closer shot of the “Summerhill” tops in this kitchen. Notice how it includes whites, beiges, grays, AND even a black fleck! Stop in and see samples and installed examples of Cambria Quartz at our showroom. Curious how a Cambria color will look in your existing kitchen? There’s an AR app to “try” them on! Learn more here on the Cambria site! The perimeter counters in this kitchen have been an “Ogee” edge applied for added style and dimension. A great way to show off that the Cambria quartz colors are throughout the entire slab of material from top to bottom. Now do us a favor. Scroll back up to the very first image of this kitchen and look at the inset doorstyle of the kitchen cabinets we’ll wait right here for you to return… and reveal that AREN’T inset doors at all! But at first glance did we have you tricked?

Inset cabinetry is an incredible look and a very classic choice for any kitchen design. But in this home, we have given the illusion of a high-end inset door at a fraction of the investment. This is the “Lexington” door from our Koch Express line of cabinetry. It has been painted in the “White” finish and a “Black Accent” has been applied to the door details. That added accent is what give the illusion of a door inset and shadowed. This small detail added to a traditional-overlay cabinet door gives a great look. It also helps to compliment the black island cabinetry perfectly. We love how the kitchen island pendants compliment the appliances in this space. These 16 1/2″ pendant lights are from Quorum’s Signature Collection and are in the Satin Nickel finish. Satin nickel is a great compliment to the Whirlpool Stainless Steel appliances.

Geneseo, IL kitchen design with Koch Cabinetry and tall hood with cathedral ceiling. Design by Chris Robinson of Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | villagehomestores.com

A 26 cu. ft. French Door refrigerator with double drawers and dual icemakers is a great choice for this busy kitchen. The focal point of this wall s the 30″ wide 5-burner gas cooktop with a tall chimney hood above. Shop all of our appliances any day, any time here on our new mobile-friendly website. What a great look for this wall of the kitchen design! Look at how the tile extends all of the way up to meet the angled ceiling behind the hood. A clean look on the edge of that tile is achieved by using a metal edge band to “cap” off the ends in a complimenting Nickel finish.

Oh trust us, we know you noticed that pot-filler faucet above the cooktop right away! Our envy-radar also went off when we saw it. Choices like these are what make a space gorgeous AND functional. We wanted to also showcase here the use of a classic subway tile in white paired with an accent tile and contrasting grout. White subway tile with a dark contrasting grout is an on-trend look but it’s not for everyone. In this kitchen, it would have been a very busy look to have a darker contrast. This subtle color choice pulls a neutral from the counter surface color and the look is great. The accent tile here is from Epic Stone’s Interlocking series in the “Everest” color combination. We also used this same accent tile in one of the tiled showers in the home (shown below).

This shower includes an elongated version of a subway tile These tiles are 4″ x 16″ and installed horizontally, they add a stylish detail while helping to make the shower seem wider. That same accent tile fro the kitchen is used as a band around the shower and also reappears on the front face of the corner bench. A 2″ hexagon tile is used here as the shower floor. Notice also the installation of a shower grab bar at the entrance. See more examples of grab bars we have installed here in this Houzz ideabook. This has become a common request from our clients of all ages and abilities. Installing assistance like this that will help a customer age-at-home and just remain safe is always a great investment!

Back to the kitchen where we can mention another important investment. The flooring you choose for a new home is so important. You want to make selections that will be durable and compliment all of the other selections you are making for fixtures and furniture in your new home. In an open concept layout like this, our COREtec engineered plank floors are a great choice. COREtec comes in a large variety of wood styles and finishes so there truly is something for any space. What our COREtec customers love beyond the look is the performance! These surfaces are kidproof, waterproof, and petproof! For our remodel customers they are great because they can also easily be installed over existing hard surfaces. Contact a flooring expert at Village Home Stores to learn more.

Edgebrooke Homes- Kitchen With Blue Island in Bettendorf, Iowa

Blue cabinetry is having more than just a “moment” in the Kitchen and Bath industry! We have installed so many stunning spaces over the past fews years that have introduced a painted blue finish and now it is become such a staple option for Transitional, Scandinavian, and Modern Farmhouse styled spaces. Blue cabinetry is forecasted to remain an accent color for many years to come. Our Koch Classic Cabinetry line makes a neutral blue-gray paint called “Charcoal Blue” and it truly makes a great statement as the island finish in this Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen. Blue and white cabinet kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. | villagehomestores.com

This home, built by Edgebrooke Homes, was a QCBR Fall Parade of Homes stop and it is such a wonderful example of how Village can partner with you and your builder to save you time AND money. Shopping our one-stop-shop experience and bundling your purchases is the way to go and it gets you a a more complete design concept! Complete, cohesive designs begin with a vision early on in the design phase. Village works hard to keep you on track with that vision (and budget).  This great room design concept blends bright painted whites, a Charcoal Blue accent, gray-toned wood floors, and warm rustic woods. Blue and white cabinet kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. Charcoal Blue by Koch. | villagehomestores.com

The main kitchen perimeter is a “White” painted cabinetry in the same “Bristol” doorstyle as the kitchen island. Staggered heights and depths of wall cabinetry can help to add interest to a kitchen design that has tall ceilings. This kitchen also includes two heights for casual dining. A large dinette area at dining height, and a single-level kitchen island extends to add more seating at the island. Blue and white kitchen with dining and kitchen island seating in a Bettendorf, Iowa home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. | villagehomestores.com

The pantry and refrigerator wall of the kitchen actually conceals a hidden feature. The pantry doors open to reveal access to the large walk-in pantry space that turns the corner behind the wall of cabinetry. This same look can be applied in a remodel situation with existing closets or unique spaces. Ask your designer at Village Home Stores how we can include one in your own design. Walk-through pantry front in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. | villagehomestores.com

Village Home Stores doesn’t want to just know what kitchen spaces inspire you… we want to know what your own dream kitchen looks like. We know it can be difficult for our clients to have a clear vision of what that looks like early on in the design phase. That is why we are here to help. You showing us spaces and ideas that inspire you, helps us build a concept for your own space and tastes.  We have a number of great specialty cabinet options like this pantry front that can take your design to the next level! Press play below to see the pantry doors open up to reveal the hidden room behind them.

The tall pantry cabinet is balanced by the refrigerator surround on the opposite end of this wall. Also included on this wall is a microwave drawer unit. Microwave drawers are a great way to keep the microwave appliance off of the counter and reachable for any users. Another great location for a microwave drawer is in a kitchen island. This section of the featured kitchen creates a great landing space of countertop for loading and unloading the refrigerator and also a work surface for microwave use and food prep. Sharp microwave drawer in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. | villagehomestores.com

Counter depth refrigerator models can really help you so much when the design demands it for traffic paths and space allowances. In this kitchen, a standard depth unit works perfectly “built-in” against the wall on one side and with a tall, deep panel on the other. A deep cabinet above completes the look. The 36″ wide Whirlpool model fits and offers so much great storage. It also stays looking great with a Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel finish that easily wipes clean. Whirlpool WRF555SDFZ French Door Refrigerator in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

The kitchen island includes the kitchen sink and a Whirlpool dishwasher. This dishwasher is quiet at just 47 decibels (normal conversation is at about 50 dba). A TotalCoverage Spray Arm cleans with twice the jets as usual and an In-Door Silverware Basket frees up rack space by easily fitting on the front of the lower rack or in the door to make room for more dishes. Charcoal Blue painted kitchen island and Whirlpool dishwasher in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The countertop surface in this gorgeous kitchen is the Swanbridge design by Cambria Quartz Surfaces.  The look of a polished, white marble in a durable maintenance-free surface. Swanbridge is available in the polished (shown) finish as well as a soft, matter finish.Cambria Swanbridge quartz tops in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The lighting for the great room has a dark, matte bronze metal finish. Clear glass on the Feiss “Baskin” pendants above the island keep the space feeling light and airy. The Sea Gull Ravenwood Manor Chandelier in the dinette area has 5 exposed vintage bulbs. This 5-light fixture adds style and impact to the space. A great look for this casual but upscale space. Kitchen lighting above island and casual dining areas in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

By not including a microwave hood in a kitchen you and your designer at Village Home Stores have many more decorative options for a hood in your kitchen. In this Bettendorf kitchen design we were able to include a decorative wood hood. We fit the hood cabinet with a 390 CFM Broan insert for the range and cooktop area below. Check out the great freestanding double-oven range on this wall. Whirlpool double oven range in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Two oven cavities so you can bake at two seperate temperatures. The gas cooktop includes a 5th center oval burner. This gas cooktop has EZ-2-Lift™ hinged grates to make clean up easy!  Press play below to see these hinged grates in action:

This model is packed with so many great features like Frozen Bake™. Skip preheating the oven for frozen faves like pizza, lasagna, chicken nuggets, fries or pies, thanks to Frozen Bake™ technology. It also bakes with true convection cooking. That helps you cook foods faster by using a third element plus a fan to distribute hot air evenly over, under and around your food. The kitchen is a part of a larger great room space and a gorgeous engineered Oak wood floor ties many of the main-level spaces together. This engineered Oak is from Hallmark Flooring’s Novella series and it is the Fitzgerald color.

That same flooring is installed in the foyer, great room, kitchen, pantry, dinette, powder room and the formal dining room shown above. We love the light fixture selected for the formal dining room. The “Fall Flora” chandelier by Quorum looks amazing!

Hazelwood Homes- Colona Home With Smart Material Choices

When you build a home, there seems to be a never-ending stream of decisions to be made. Village Home Stores is so blessed to work with so many of the region’s best builders. These builders allow us to partner with them and their clients to make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible. We form you a team of experts based on the products you need for your home. That team works together with you to help guide you to make the best choices for your lifestyle and the budgets you have set. There are so many areas of your home where you can make smart material choices and help get you the overall look and performance you want. This home from Hazelwood Homes built in Colona, IL is a fantastic example of that!Colona Illinois New Home by Hazelwood Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

There are many elements that your cabinet designer will discuss with you to help pair your wish list and needs with the right products. That is why we carry so many product lines at various prices. We offer a wide variety of options so we can meet any budget or construction expectation. We designed the kitchen using our Koch Express line of cabinetry. The perimeter of the kitchen is in the “Lexington” doorstyle and painted “Oyster” finish. The kitchen island is in the “Camden” door in a Rustic Birch wood stained a “Stone” finish. The look and function (soft close doors and drawers were applied) of a semi-custom kitchen from our Express builder-grade product. Both the soft, bright gray color of the Oyster and the stained Stone island are right on trend. Another trend is the use of two medium-sized light fixtures above an island instead of a line smaller pendants.

Our lighting experts will work with your cabinet designer to help you select the appropriate shape, size, and quantity of light needed for your space. Since we are focusing on smart material choices in this post, we want to point out that these are actually foyer lights. Many times, smart choices come from the ability to think outside the box. The lighting trend of 2-3 larger light fixtures above kitchen islands has often brought our lighting team to suggest foyer, dining, and even some outdoor lighting product for our clients. We carry thousands of lighting options and our experts will work with you to help narrow down your personal style and needs. Koch Express cabinets in painted Oyster finish. Colona Illinois New Home by Hazelwood Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

We love the clean look of the bright Oyster painted finish and the addition of 5-piece drawer fronts give a very classic look to the cabinetry. A 5-piece drawer front means that in place of a smooth, slab drawer with an outside edge you get the look of a small door. A framed edge with center panel. And nothing can be a more classic countertop choice than a white marble… but this isn’t marble. It isn’t stone at all! They are Formica laminate! Formica’s “Calacatta Marble” design in the large-format print 180FX series gives a successful look of real marble at a fraction of the cost.
Marble look Formica laminate top in Calacatta Marble color with full wrap edge and drop in kitchen sink. Colona Illinois New Home by Hazelwood Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

We installed it here using what is called an “ideal” edge profile. That helps create even more of a look of a smooth edge to a slab of stone on the lengths of the top and even the corners. The durable Elkay drop-in sink used is another smart material selection. Think of how much use your kitchen sink gets. You need it to look great but also perform well. These granite composite options are available in so many colors now we can find just the right one to compliment your kitchen design.Marble look Formica laminate top in Calacatta Marble color with drop in kitchen sink. Colona Illinois New Home by Hazelwood Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.comWe also love the clean look of the faucet selected. A single hole fixture is easier to clean and helps to keep the island looking less cluttered. This model has a single lever control and a pull down sprayer. Laminate tops can be one of the smartest material decisions made when building a home. You can always return years later and replace your counters with an upgrade of material. That is a simpler project than changing out your cabinetry or flooring. Formica laminate top in Calacatta Marble color with full wrap edge. Colona Illinois New Home by Hazelwood Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

The flooring selected looks absolutely stunning when paired with the cabinet finishes and all of the other materials selected for the kitchen and great room. The flooring in this home is honestly one our favorite material investments made by these customers. Our COREtec flooring product is one of the very best flooring options we have available. The look of wood (or tile) in a high density, extra strong plank that is 100% waterproof, 100% kidproof, and 100% petproof! The luxury vinyl has an added wear layer for durability and it is bonded to a stable waterproof core made of bamboo and recycled woods.

The COREtec in this kitchen is an embossed grain product from the Plus XL line named “Muir Oak”. The XL series means that the planks are extra wide (9″) for a bigger impact. Perfect for large, open spaces like this. There are so many varieties of COREtec available. this “Muir Oak” finish looks so great with so many cabinet finishes and styles. It also compliments many furniture finishes for spaces like this where you have a great room with many items atop the floors. A durable, dependable and stylish choice for flooring is always a smart choice. Those same qualities can be found in the appliance package selected for the kitchen. Colona Illinois New Home by Hazelwood Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

Maytag is known for it’s sturdy and dependable product. So much so that they now include a 10 year Limited Part Warranty on their products. These parts vary depending on the appliance category. For example, on the range shown above the cooktop burners, oven burners, cast-iron metal grates and cavity are all covered. Learn more about this range here on our website. Maytag builds products that can perform in your home using many commercial parts and techniques. That way they can perform for you for many years.

This appliance suite also includes Maytag’s Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel. A true stainless steel that is easy to clean and keeps your kitchen looking great. Of course, above a hardworking 5-burner gas range you will need ventilation. This microwave hood has a multiple speed exhaust fan to helps remove smoke and odors as you work in the kitchen. A mesh grease filter helps prevent messes and a charcoal odor filter removes high airflow odors and steam. Did you know that our store can save you time and money?

We added interest by carrying the 2″ hexagon mosaic tiles up the wall in a stripe. Within that stripe we built in a custom niche area or toiletries. A corner bench of the walls adds another great feature to the tiled shower. Material selections are so important to be made with the overall vision of the space in mind. That is why shopping for product all in one location can help create the best overall look with the least amount of stress for you. Not sure how the tile will look with the vanity top color? No problem! Let’s grab your cabinet designer and see what they think! Concerned about fitting that large-capacity refrigerator in your design? So is your appliance expert who can communicate with your designer all of the needed dimensions for the perfect fit.

Hazelwood Homes- Open, Bright, Gray, and White in Moline, IL

Spring is finally here and this kitchen feature is truly a breath of fresh air! Open and bright with finishes that are gray and white. Take a look at the stunning kitchen in this new home built by Hazelwood Homes in Moline, IL.
A Moline, IL kitchen with white and gray painted cabinets and quartz tops. Design by Chris Robinson, Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Transitional in style with chic and glamorous details like marble and a touch of sparkle. This kitchen blends cool colors from a gray palette and a variety of textures. The perimeter cabinetry is painted white and the island is a painted “Fog” finish. The cabinetry is from our Koch line and the simple flat-panel “Prairie” door has been selected. A Moline, IL kitchen with appliances from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

The top section of cabinet doors have glass center panels for a clerestory look. Even with every surface from floor to ceiling covered, this range wall still stays feeling open and airy. Venetian Calcutta marble tiles in a subway tile shape fill the backsplash area and extend behind the chimney-style hood on up to the ceiling. A 30″ wide wall mount chimney hood with 400 CFM’s of power sits above a front-control slide-in gas range by Maytag®.

This front-control style range includes true convection features and fits any standard 30″ wide opening for an existing range. “Slide-in” ranges used to require special countertop installations and surroundings. With the new FIT System from Maytag®, this unit will slide right into an existing opening for a custom look without hassle. The look allows your tiled backsplash the full area to be showcased. Five gas burners on top and 5.8 cu. ft. of capacity inside the oven, this range is perfect for any serious cook. A Moline, IL kitchen with Maytag appliances from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Convection features offer up a consistent temperature and with an added third element surrounding the convection fan in this unit, the entire cavity can heat up faster. That means a faster preheat with Power Preheat! Convection is easier to use than you think. Just ask one of our expert sales team members about how it works. We included a full-depth refrigerator in this kitchen design (notice the projection out into the kitchen in image below). A Moline, IL kitchen with Maytag appliances from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores

In this design, there is no demand for a counterdepth model. Instead, a full 27 cu. ft. french door refrigerator is installed. Maytag®’s fingerprint resistant stainless steel keeps this entire appliance package looking brand new everyday. Press play below to take a closer look around this kitchen:

Such a beautiful space. The second wall of cabinetry includes the kitchen sink, dishwasher, and a window. That same fingerprint resist stainless finish is also on the dishwasher. Maytag® takes their warranty a step above others in the industry by including a 10 year warranty on the major components of an appliance (i.e. the cooktop burners, oven burners, cast-iron metal grates, refrigerator compressor, etc). Ask your Village appliance expert what is covered on your new Maytag® appliances! A Moline, IL kitchen with Maytag appliances by Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Tile transitions and installation designs can be just as much or a decision as selecting the material. Our surface experts work with your kitchen designer to give you the best application of your selections for the best end result. The range wall in this kitchen is between two walls making it easy for tile to end. The sink wall required what is called a “Schluter® strip” (shown below).A Moline, IL kitchen with Venetian Calcutta subway tiles and schluter end strip from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

This metal channel allows a clean edge for the tile and grout to end at. Available in many sizes and finishes, this element is available to be bid for all of our installed jobs as well as for our DIY and cash-and-carry customers. The kitchen island in this design has cabinetry facing the range wall and an overhanging area along the back for counter-height seating. A Moline, IL kitchen with painted gray cabinets from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

The back side has been fit with wainscot panels and two wooden legs on the ends give the island a furniture look. Outlets are tucked up beneath the overhang area for small appliance hookup when prepping or serving. The inside of the island also has a hidden secret…A Moline, IL kitchen with hidden microwave from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Fossil Gray quartz counters give an almost cement-like look to the kitchen’s perimeter and lets the pattern of the large island top shine. The kitchen island shown below measures roughly 8 1/2 feet x 3 feet in size. The Summerhilldesign by Cambria® Quartz is full of neutral grays and whites plus subtle sparkles. When shown in a large piece (like this island), it has a huge design impact.

Hanging above the kitchen island is a “Morgan” 8-light fixture from our Capital Lighting line. Sleek and chic, the Morgan light is a Polished Nickel finish with square K9crystal bases at each candlestick-like base. The light is the perfect size and scale for the island. With the caged design, it keeps the entire look open with a clear sight through to the kitchen.A Moline, IL home with stylish chrome lighting from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com
