Small Island, Big Style in a Taylor Ridge Remodeled Kitchen

Who’s ready for a break from all of the white painted kitchens we have been sharing so much of? Please hear this friendly reminder that while white kitchens continue to grace the covers of home design magazines and HGTV shows… that look is not for everyone. Thankfully our team is here to make YOUR kitchen dream a reality, not someone else’s! Take a look at this sophisticated new kitchen remodel we just wrapped up in Taylor Ridge, IL with a refreshing new take on painted cabinetry.

Our best-selling raised panel doorstyle from Koch Classic is named “Seneca” and in this new kitchen we have included a Maple wood with “Black” painted finish from Koch. Five-piece drawerfronts (see island cabinet above) offer lots of added edges for the light to highlight this rich painted finish. Many would think that a black painted kitchen would be dark and cold but take a look at this bright and inviting new space! We have added a great new lighting plan, removed a portion of a wall, and even included glass in the doors above the kitchen sink.

A key element in keeping the space feeling bright and open is leaving plenty of walkway space surrounding the downsized kitchen island. When you are in this new kitchen you would never use the phrase “downsized” to describe this island in reality. It is exactly the right size for the kitchen design. It’s all about scale! If you have been curious about fitting an island in your own kitchen design, let one of our expert designers see what could fit for you within a functional layout. In this case, one very large base cabinet was simply ordered at a standard shallower depth of 18″ instead of 24″ and the one modification created the perfectly-scaled island cabinet.

That shallower depth still allows for a functional drawer above the lower storage and now gives room in this space for a countertop overhang for seating. The result is a centrally-located surface for prep and casual dining. The large quartz counter surface of the island is now within reach of the sink wall, the refrigerator wall, and the cooking zone of the kitchen. We were able to keep these beautiful existing cherry hardwood floors from the original kitchen because the peninsula layout didn’t change and we did not remove the lower half of the dividing wall.

Across the room from the kitchen sink you will find the 4-Door Refrigerator and cooking zone. Our Sharp Over-The-Counter Microwave is tucked into the area between the two. This nook creates a great location for small appliances and would make a wonderful location for a coffee station in the kitchen. Our team removed a large section of a wall that divides the kitchen from the dining room and nearby living room space.

We capped off the half-wall with a long slab of matching Cambria quartz. This large pass-through area now creates the open concept design that this home truly deserves. And with two outlets on the inside of this ledge, this becomes a great counter for serving guests and entertaining. Speaking of entertaining, on the half-wall that divides the kitchen from the dining room is a new Whirlpool electric front-control range boasting 6.4 cubic ft. of capacity!

It also has convection features allowing a consistent oven temperature and the ability to cook with all racks at once.

We service the the Quad Cities and many surrounding areas with appliance sales and service. We have noticed a rise in popularity with matte black finishes in our industry. Our Black Stainless appliances continue to be very popular and honed and brushed finishes on black countertops is also requested often. Tile surfaces, lighting, and plumbing fixtures as well as home accessories are all trending to a matte black look. We love the level of sophistication it can bring to a cabinet design. Just look at how the daylight shows off this great stylish finish!

The quartz countertop surfaces in this Taylor Ridge remodel are from our Cambria Quartz line. The “Seagrove” design is a bright blend of whites and shimmering silvers plus gray and black flecks making it the perfect way to tie in all of the new finishes in the kitchen (psst! ask your designer about some of our exclusive priced Cambria options). An Ogee edge profile was applied and we think it really compliments the raised panel details of the cabinetry doors and drawers.

Of course our customer favorite Diode LED tape lighting helps keep the space bright and warm. Learn more about that system in our last blog post.

McClellan Heights Kitchen Remodel With White Cabinets and Honed Granite

Kitchen remodeled from start to finish in the McClellan Heights district of Davenport, IA by Village Home Stores.

There are so many incredible homes and unique neighborhoods in the Quad Cities area. Such a storied history down each road. The McClellan Heights district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, at which time it included 354 buildings that were decided to contribute to the historic character of the area. Not just limited to the Village of East Davenport, this area technically stretches from Jersey Ridge road to the Bettendorf City Limits and from River Drive to Middle Road. There is such a history to the area dating back to the American Civil War. We are so blessed to get to be a part of many of the kitchen and bathroom restorations of these important properties in our community. The homes are unique and eclectic in period styles and details and many even boast views of the Mississippi River. We were thrilled to renovate the kitchen in one recently and want to show you how it turned out. Take a look!

When renovating historic homes, every material selection and inch of storage space should be considered by an expert. These homes were built with that relentless attention to detail and great craftsmanship. You simply are doing yourself (and your return investment) a disservice for your property if you don’t respect the remodeling projects in your historic home. For this kitchen we chose to install a classic, flat-panel cabinet style in a painted “White” finish. The door is a full-overlay door named “Savannah” from our Koch Classic line. The cabinetry includes full-extension soft-close drawer guides and soft-close doors.

The countertop surfaces for this kitchen give the look of a classic soapstone material. They are actually a Honed Black Pearl Granite in an eased edge profile. While “matte black” finishes are currently on-trend for kitchen and bath projects… they have always been on trend for historic properties! The soft, leathered look of a honed natural stone is a wonderful choice for both style and performance. A 30″ Classico Fireclay farmsink was under-mounted to the island top to complete the look. To keep the kitchen counters clean, and offer a more stylish option for a kitchen hood we tucked the microwave out of sight in the island (see below). These base microwave cabinets can be a great location for larger appliances that can sometimes clutter up a countertop area.

Keeping the kitchen feeling airy and light are the two new Kichler “Everly” pendant lights that hang above the island. The clear glass shape gives an old world look and the dark Oil Rubbed Bronze metal finish marries well with the countertop selection. Our lighting experts at Village Home Stores can help you select a whole home of lighting or that one perfect fixture for your space. Learn more and shop our lighting selections here online.

Classic, white-painted cabinetry can be a great nod to the past while pairing so well with modern elements like appliances and kitchen accessories. White kitchens like this never go out of style. We choose to install a wood cabinet hood with a blower insert within it. Using a stainless chimney hood here could shift the style of the space into a more modern category. This cabinet hood instead gives the function of a 390 CFM Broan Blower and blends in perfectly with the surrounding cabinetry.

Soho Subway Tile in the classic 3″ x 6″ size is installed in white with a white grout. Our Radiant series of switches and outlets is installs clean with no visible screws. Our bestselling Diode LED undercabinet lighting is installed here on a dimmer switch for ambient low-voltage light and bright, functional task lighting. KitchenAid’s 30″ wide 700 series -burner gas range with convection oven is a powerhouse of a kitchen appliance! Packed with incredible features and versatile cooktop, this range is perfect for home chefs who truly love the cooking process. Shop our Local Low-Priced Guarantee on all appliances here.

Old homes typically don’t have large kitchen or bathroom spaces to work with. Homeowners need to work with an expert kitchen designer to make the most of their space. Of course we packed great storage solutions in the cabinetry anywhere we could. Slide-out shelves, large drawers, a pullout wastebasket and slideout tray divider (shown below).

We even extended the main kitchen into the dinette area by installing a custom bench seat. The bench seat drops down below the windows and turns the corner to provide seating for an antique table. Some of the bench is even functional storage! Drawers (shown below) provide great storage space for seat cushions, placemats, even pantry items if needed.

We love the faucet that the customer selected for their home. The bridged look of the handle controls and faucet gives a great old world feel. A low-key modern detail is the push-button garbage disposal we installed in the kitchen island. This single button (shown below to the right of faucet) adds a low-profile modern amenity for the kitchen user. Bright Polished Chrome accents on the Top Knobs cabinetry hardware and Kohler kitchen faucet are also a nod to the restoration style.

Historic homes and properties are a fantastic location to invest in natural stone countertop surfaces like granite, marble, and quartzite. Surfaces that have a history of their own can be such a wonderful investment for your project. We partner with Epic Stone warehouse and Surface Resource fabrication to get you the very best quality of surfaces and installation/seamwork available in the Iowa and Illinois region. Press play below to take a look behind the scenes at the fabrication process for your granite tops.

Of course every historic home has many stories, and this remodel is now another story for this home. We are just so thrilled to have been trusted to be a part of it. Inviting our team into your home is not something we take lightly.

Bettendorf Iowa- Kitchen Remodeled From Start to Finish

This remodel feature takes us to a Bettendorf Iowa home that was in need of updates to better match the needs and tastes of new homeowners. The Complete Project Management Program at Village Home Stores allowed us to manage every estimate, every step, every schedule, and every detail for these clients. With a plan in place and a schedule in action we were able to remodel this home before they even moved in. Take a look at the beautiful new kitchen:Painted kitchen with accent glaze in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. #kitchen #remodel from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Like many of the before stories we share here on the blog, the original kitchen was very nice. A functional design with quality products at the time it was installed many years ago. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t in need of updates. A long kitchen peninsula divided the kitchen from the dining room space and storage was limited to standard height wall cabinets: 

We began by removing the existing kitchen, ceiling soffits, and ceramic tile flooring. The new design from Village Home Stores replaces the peninsula with a center kitchen island. This allows us to open up the kitchen to feel included in the open floor plan the home already had. A large skylight at the center of the kitchen is a fantastic feature and will remain a part of the new design. 

The photo above shows progress after demo and plumbing and electrical rough-ins have been completed based on the new kitchen layout. A half-wall has been built for the new kitchen island. Many crews were scheduled and coordinated to remodel the kitchen, flooring, a stairway, many upstairs bedrooms, and a master bathroom (more on that in a future post). The most dramatic transformation happened in the kitchen. Take a look at this new stunning bright kitchen!Remodeled kitchen in Bettendorf from Village Home Stores. Project managed from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Beautiful new random-width light Hickory floors from our Bella Cera line in a finish named “Precis” set the stage for the new space. Cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Legacy”, Full-Overlay door has been painted in a “White” finish and an “Umber” highlight has been applied. You can see how the Umber highlight helps to accent the details of cabinetry especially the beaded back panel of the kitchen island. Beadboard back panel on kitchen island in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

The skylight, bright painted cabinetry, and light hardwood floors help to give the space a warm and bright feel… but rest assured, we still added an expert lighting plan to the new kitchen. Recessed can lighting was placed throughout to illuminate the new areas of the kitchen and our bestselling Diode LED tape light was installed as undercabinet AND in-cabinet lighting. Diode LED undercabinet lighting used to light interior and underside of cabinets in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

This lighting system is essential to help add ambient and task lighting (shown above in full daylight). This system is low profile, low voltage and creates the perfect wash of consistent light to any area. Electricians love the low-profile versatility of this product because you can “hide” it easily out of sight. Take a look at how easily it is tucked away behind the cabinet faceframe below: Diode LED undercabinet lighting used to light interior of cabinet in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

A tall pantry cabinets fit with adjustable sliding shelves is always an enviable part of any kitchen tour. When your tall cabinet is more than 12″ deep, discuss your storage options with you designer. Slide out shelves can always make pantry access (and staying organized) easier. Tall pantry cabinet with slideout shelves in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

Notice also in the image above that a baseboard molding near the floor has been wrapped around this section of cabinetry. This helps to create a built-in look to the hutch area. The baseboard also gets an added accent from the Umber highlight applied to the cabinet finish. Another tall pantry is down the wall near the refrigerator. More tall cabinet storage is just beyond the new kitchen in the laundry room (shown just through the door in the image below).

A package of KitchenAid appliances in Stainless Steel make this bright and beautiful kitchen extremely functional beginning with the incredible 5 door refrigerator model selected. This full-sided French Door model includes two soft-close refrigerated drawers and a three-tiered freezer layout. One of the drawers has 5 preset temperatures so you can select to store: meat/fish, drinks, greens/herbs, deli/cheese, or even thaw/marinate items. The other drawer includes a Produce Preserver feature ideal for getting the longest life for your fresh produce. Shop the full details of this refrigerator here on our new website or stop by the store today and see it in person.

A Sharp microwave drawer in the center kitchen island includes a tilt-out control panel and blends seamlessly with the other appliances. Microwave drawers install so well into kitchen islands and locating a microwave in a center kitchen island is a more convenient location than having them tucked into a corner or awkwardly above a cooktop. Microwave drawers give a great customized look.

Another great custom kitchen, built-in look is achieved by separating the kitchen cooktop and oven. In this design a 30″ wide 5-burner gas cooktop is installed above a 30″ wide convection wall oven.  Shown below with another great detail of changing the cabinet and countertop depth at the cooking station for added interest. Wall #oven built into base cabinet with Gas #cooktop above.

Above the cooktop is a wood hood design with a concealed Broan blower insert. 390 CFMs hidden within a hood cabinet that is taller and deeper than the surrounding cabinets.

Take a moment to notice the scale of the cabinet hardware on the doors and drawers. Cabinet handles and knobs can sometimes be one of the last decisions made but they are so important for a complete design. The handles selected here are an appropriate scale with the door and drawer sizes. Smaller “standard” sized handles would look out of place. The wall surfaces of the new kitchen keep the light bouncing around perfectly. Glossy, glass subway tile adds texture and style to the space. This 3″ x 6″ tile is from our Appeal series in a neutral color named “Cloud Cream”Glass subway tile in a remodeled Bettendorf Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

Classic Subway Tiles can be installed in a number of patterns. We love the choice here to use a Herringbone pattern. It adds a playful look to the classic tile shape. The countertops in this kitchen are another neutral and classic choice. This “Chakra Beige” engineered quartz is one of our promotional-priced colors at the time of this feature. It blends well with painted or stained cabinets and shown here with the light Hickory floors it looks perfect. Quartz is a no-nonsense counter material for your kitchen. It is non-porous (no stains) and heat and scratch resistant! Once installed, there is no maintenance needed and the surface can be cleaned easily with soap and water or any non-abrasive cleaner.

Aspen Homes- Transitional Style on Parade in Bettendorf, IA

“Build your dream home with your now budget” that’s the phrase that greets you on the new Aspen Homes LLC Website. With the Aspen team and your new home team here at Village Home Stores that is absolutely possible! Take a look around this Bettendorf, IA kitchen that was part of the QCBR Spring Parade of Homes this year. Transitional style kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.comPainted white cabinets on the perimeter and a stained gray kitchen island to anchor the space.

The new look of the Whirlpool® slide-in ranges is amazing! Now referred to as “front-control” ranges, these gas and electric units have no back control panel raising up to cover the backsplash area. This new design allows the full-access of sight for a backsplash and can be installed in any traditional 30″ wide range opening. The hood wall absolutely becomes the focal point of the kitchen design. Symmetrical in layout and complimented with the island and lighting placement just in front of it. The pendants selected for this kitchen offer style and function but also don’t block the view of that focal wall.

Two lantern-style lights from our Kichler line hang above the kitchen island. Our New Construction lighting expert works closely with you, the Aspen team, and your kitchen designer here at Village Home Stores to determine the best style, scale, and placement for your kitchen island lighting.

The lantern shape is a traditional choice for a foyer light in a home. Using it here helps bridge the gap between Transitional and New-Traditional. We love the look! A wall of cabinetry near the home office includes the Whirlpool® counter-depth french door Refrigerator and a Sharp® microwave drawer. The counter-depth feature on this refrigerator helps to keep the traffic from the back entry of the home clear and open in the design.

A white farmsink is a perfect contrast to stand out in the single-level kitchen island. Drawer storage, a dishwasher, and a pull-out wastebasket are all included in the island design. A black accent glaze has been added to the Cherry “Stone” stain to help highlight the door details on the island.
Gray stained kitchen island. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

The sides and back of the island has been treated with a smooth panel in the same Cherry “Stone” stain. Trim has been added to divide up the space into three sections. We have seen a larger trend of single-level islands like these to include barstools that are backless. While this style may not be comfortable for all, the look is more open and less crowded.

Open Concepts in the way of a Great Room design are truly the desired layout for new homes in the Quad Cities area. For busy families, young professionals who like to entertain, or retirees looking to downsize, everyone is wanting a more open living space. With beautiful views of the Midwest countryside out these windows, who wouldn’t want to see that from every room possible.

Great Rooms can be very versatile spaces. As you can see, there is plenty of space for seating in the great room. 4 barstools fit comfortably at the island and a dining table is nearby for a more formal option. Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining area. A 6-light fixture named “Pearson” from our Capital line has a sleek modern profile with a nod to a traditional style fixture. Pearson light by Capital Lighting in a dining area.

Heartland Builders- Spring Parade of Homes 2017

This Spring we have the great pleasure to have our designs and products included in a number of homes in the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Association Spring Parade of Homes. We share a lot of remodel stories here on the blog but we also put our designs and product into new construction homes. We wanted to share some tours of these homes to give you a look at what “New Construction” looks like in the Quad Cities region. This home built by Heartland Builders is in Bettendorf, Iowa. Heartland worked with us and purchased all cabinetry, counters, appliances, and lighting for this home from our store. Let’s begin a tour with the stunning kitchen.
White painted kitchen cabinetry by Koch paired with Cambria Bellingham quartz tops in a Bettendorf kitchen. Design by Village Home Stores for Heartland Builders. | VillageHomeStores.com

A clean and classic look! White painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Ridgegate” doorstyle is paired with elongated subway tile, quartz countertops, and a KitchenAid® appliance package. A U-shaped layout with a centered island creates an open and functional space for multiple users and can accommodate many guests within the great room. The focal wall in the design is the back wall that is home to a 48″ chimney-style hood and a 48″ wide, dual fuel 6-burner range with griddle by KitchenAid® .

This commercial-style range offers features that any home chef can love along with easy-to-use basics. Convection features may sound intimidating to navigate but this model includes EasyConvect™ Conversion to help you adjust times and temperatures. 6-burners on the cooktop plus a chrome griddle that is easy to clean. Oven capacity is one of the best parts of including a commercial style range in your design.

The combined left and right ovens add up to 6.3 cu. ft. of space! With convection features you can use all of those racks at once if needed and still get consistent results! One “leg” of the U-shape includes a center glass-door cabinet and a long countertop space. This gives a built-in hutch look, and offers a great location to be used as a sideboard to serve food from or set up a beverage station.

The other “leg” of the kitchen is where the tall built-in section of appliances are. A tall, 24″ deep cabinet offers lots of storage and a center section is fit with a convection microwave oven. A stainless steel trim kit frames in this microwave for a built-in look. KitchenAid®’s built-in 42″ wide French Door refrigerator.

The built-in unit installs back with the cabinetry face frame surrounding it. This offers a much more customized a sleek look compared to a standard-depth model that would project into the space by a handful of added inches.

A center kitchen island includes lots of added storage and a pull-out wastebasket cabinets. Having your wastebaskets centrally-located and right on a corner make it so much easy for guests to find them or get direction to them. A dishwasher is also found in the island alongside a Stainless Steel farmhouse sink.

Quartz countertops in Cambria’s “Bellingham” design are a stunning selection. The blend of neutral colors and gray veining add to the classic look of this kitchen. Once installed, Cambria is maintenance free and a wonderful choice for this entire kitchen. A single handle kitchen faucet has been installed and a garbage disposal button is located right above the sink in the countertop.

These clear glass lights help keep the space seem airy and open. Our lighting experts will work with you and your kitchen designer to select the perfect look, size, and scale of lighting to hang above your kitchen island.

There are so many gorgeous lights selected throughout this home. Our new construction lighting expert will sit down with you and your contractor to help determine what lighting is needed and how you can make the most of your lighting budget. We love the light fixture (show below) that hangs in the formal Dining Room of this home. This 8-light pendant is by Kichler.

The same “Ridgegate” door from the kitchen has been painted in Koch’s “Taupe” paint. An “Ebony” accent glaze helps showcase the edges and details of the doors and drawers. Vanity cabinetry and a tall linen cabinet have been installed for a beautiful look with wall-to-wall mirror above the sink area. Sconces from our Kichler line are mounted directly through the mirror. Quartz counters in the “Mont Clair White” design are a beautiful blend of the cabinetry and tile colors in the bathroom. This entire home was furnished and staged by Calla located in Davenport, IA.
