Geneseo, IL- White Kitchen With Matte Black Granite Tops

We are so excited to share this kitchen feature with you because we know that this finished space is a perfect match to many of our reader’s own taste. When the term “Farmhouse” or “Modern Farmhouse” gets used that can truly mean a number of things. Just like any style term, it can mean something different to each person. But when your home has panoramic views of the Midwest countryside plus all of these great farmhouse details we think Modern Farmhouse is just the right fit.

We hope to be able to share this full kitchen story on the Village Home Show sometime soon. And who are we kidding? You came here to see the finished kitchen! For the sake of this blog feature we do want to give you some sense of how far this space has come during the transformation. The original kitchen and dining room spaces were divided by a center wall. The cramped kitchen had cabinetry in a medium wood with dated countertops. Bottom line: the busiest room of the house did not match this family’s lifestyle or reflect their personal tastes. beforesThe complete Project Management program at Village Home Stores is available for those who are ready for not just the expert design and material selection, but our entire proven process. We coordinate everything from the very beginning until the final walk-through. Estimates are prepared in detail based on meetings involving ALL PARTIES. That helps to keep the scheduling and communication as seamless as possible once work begins. This kitchen remodel involved a full team of experts from Village Home Stores along with carpenters, electricians, plumbers, plasterworkers, flooring, and tile installers.duringThe end result is a show-stopping take on the Modern Farmhouse style. Now the kitchen has opened up into a large great room space including a dining room, a desk/bar area, and nearby family room. A long kitchen island provides a versatile space for storage, worksurface, and even dining. Farmhouse painted white kitchen remodeled by Quad Cities kitchen experts Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Natural light pours into the space from the sliding glass doors facing the back of the property. New light oak hardwood flooring has been installed throughout and it is the perfect platform to showcase the new kitchen and furnishings. The floor is from Hallmark Floors in their “Novella” series and “Twain” finish.

The hardwood gives a natural look and feel to the room but without too much wild variation in color from plank to plank. Bright white painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been installed in the “Savannah” doorstyle. The classic, flat-panel door is the perfect choice for any Transitional kitchen space. This door is considered a “reversed center panel” door. That means that this center (flat) section is not thin or flimsy. Instead it is a thick, raised panel reverse-installed to make a very solid, sturdy door. An over-the-counter microwave by Sharp® includes 1100 watts and 1.5 cu. ft. capacity.

Would you believe that a kitchen we are calling “Modern Farmhouse” doesn’t have a farm sink!?! It’s true! We think this kitchen checks all the right boxes without needing one! A Stainless Steel sink has been undermounted to the granite tops and a single drill kitchen faucet with pull-out sprayer has been installed.

The main focal point of the back wall is the new chimney hood area. This 30″ wide Stainless hood extends all the way to the ceiling and so does the beautiful new tile. “Glossy White” Subway Tile from our Soho series in a classic 3″ x 6″ size has been installed throughout the kitchen. Installing the tile within this entire hood area creates a bright, glossy texture and the shape of the tile helps to draw your eye.

As a contrast to the white glossy tile, a matte finished granite has been selected for the kitchen counters. “Black Pearl” granite in the “Brushed” finish almost gives a leather look to the tops. Matte black accents are a huge trend moving into 2017 and in this kitchen that trend is made classic. A standard “Eased” edge has been applied to the granite slabs. Brushed finished granite add a touchable texture and help to soften the look of stone counters.

The center island in the new space boasts a large countertop surface but also a lot of great storage below. Located at the very center of all activity it is the perfect place for pots and pans storage as well as small appliances and items for food prep. The top center drawer has been ordered to include a divided top drawer for flatware and cutlery.

The base cabinets with doors have been fit with adjustable slide-out shelves. These are ideal for storing pots and pans or keeping other containers and dishes with lids organized. Having this kitchen island directly behind the range area creates a wonderful available surface for prep as well as unloading the double oven when needed.

Outlets have also been installed on the end of the kitchen island for easy access for small appliances. These outlets aren’t only there for a mixer or blender…consider this island in your own home. Would you mind setting up your work-from-home office here or a homework station? If you need a device charged or a laptop plugged in the outlet is right there. It is important to note that many kitchen islands have become the center of ALL activity. That includes working for many people. If the island isn’t the right space to work at there is a desk area designated just across the room.

A stack of drawers and counter surface has been dropped down to “desk height” and this workspace is still within eyesight or earshot of anyone working in the kitchen. Two full-height door cabinets and a glass-front beverage cooler complete this wall of cabinetry with a versatile location perfect for entertaining. Setting up this counter as a beverage station will be perfect when guests are over. It will not be in the way of anyone working in the kitchen.  Now a cold drink is just a few steps inside from the patio doors.

The carpentry work for this remodel was completed by the crew at Durian Builders. They teamed up with  Reclaimed Salvage who provided the reclaimed barnwood for these awesome floating shelves. We want to give a special shout out to the homeowner who also took on some projects for this remodel. The family room was given a new wall treatment and the pantry barn doors turned out amazing! We were so thrilled to help make this space better fit this family in function and style. They were wonderful to work with.farm-kitchen-style

East Moline, IL – A Family Home Updated

kitchen_remodel_e_molineThis kitchen remodel in East Moline isn’t just a typical Before & After story. There is a little bit more history here than our typical “we tore out a wall to make room” remodel. One of the homeowners of this project has many memories in the original kitchen… he grew up in this house!

The finished kitchen looks absolutely incredible. Bright white painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Savannah” doorstyle is paired with Cambria Quartz counters in the ‘Whitney” design. The subtle tone-on-tone material selections make the space bright, clean, and up to date. take a peek below at the stove wall’s before and after transformation…

Dark cabinetry and the original kitchen appliances were ready for a modern update. The owners of this new kitchen are excited to show friends and family how removing a single wall and updating the kitchen has given them a whole new space. The new kitchen is a major update! So long Top-Mount Refrigerator and “hello” French Doors! Not just French-Doors, a new 4-Door Refrigerator from Whirlpool.

A center refrigerated drawer on this unit can be used for a number of fresh-food storage purposes. This unit includes water and ice in the door with an added feature called “Measured Fill”. Measured Fill allows you to select the exact amount of filtered water (in ounces, cups or liters) that you need. The dispenser will fill the container and automatically shut off when complete. Tip: program the correct amount of water you need for the coffee pot or your favorite water bottle.

Speaking of water, let’s visit the kitchen sink. The farmhouse style sink you saw in the first photo is a large single-well unit. This 30″ wide model is undermounted to the Cambria counters for a clean look and an easy clean swipe from the counter to the sink when cleaning. It is hard to imagine anything could steal attention from a beautiful farm sink in a new kitchen… but these custom blinds almost steal the show!

The large Dining Room window, the window above the kitchen sink, and a second kitchen window are each fit with custom “Transitions” blinds from our Oxford House line. These custom blinds put on a show every time you use them. See them in action here in this video…

With the option to be closed or partially closed, these Transitions blinds can be ordered in a variety of colors. Each are custom ordered to fit you window. This is one of those products that you truly have to see and use in person to get the full effect. Stop in our showroom anytime to see our display.

A chandelier hangs above the Dining Room table and a smaller-scaled fixture above the kitchen sink. Adding these lights help bring a Traditional style detail to an otherwise Transitional look.

Another update to a timeless look is the backsplash tile used. In place of a solid white subway tile, this Glazzio glass tile from the “Glacier” series was installed. The classic shape and pattern or a Subway tile but in a glass tile. The glass is a perfect texture to help highlight the sparkle that Cambria’s “Whitney” quartz has. Cambria quartz "Whitney" design. | VillageHomeStores.com

The sparkle of the Cambria tops gives an incredibly upscale look. As you walk past it in person, the light catches the flecks and sparkles. The crystals in the chandeliers paired with the glass tiles… it’s the perfect hint of bling to dress up this kitchen.

We have to also mention this Whirlpool gas range. Replacing the older “slide-in” models, this new full-depth front-control range can fit in any existing opening for a freestanding range. With no back control panel, the look is clean and seamless. This range is a great choice when you want your backsplash tile to have the full height of space to be shown off. Other features like fan convection, rapid preheat, and even frozen bake make this one of our personal favorites.

This galley kitchen is filled with great storage solutions to make the space. Slide-out shelves and a pullout waste bin have been included. The upper cabinets of the sink wall have been fit with glass. These doors have been ordered with what is called a “70/30” split configuration. In this kitchen, “Cotswold” glass has been added to the larger sections. Our diode LED lighting illuminates the interior of these cabinets as well as the tiled backsplash. Kitchen remodeled in East Moline, IL by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Rock Island Bath Remodel: A Snowy Winter Palette

cambria_quartz_rock_islandWith our very first snowstorm of 2015 on the way to the area, we thought what better project feature to “snow” you in with than this Rock Island, IL bathroom remodel. We absolutely love the finishes this customer selected from our store to create an upscale look with touches of texture and sparkle we can’t wait for you to see.snow color palette | VillageHomeStores.com

Painted white cabinetry from our Koch line is accented with a grey “Smoke” glaze on all of the vanity edges. Large gray 12″ x 24″ floor tiles create the perfect base for the new bathroom. Polished chrome fixtures like the Delta “Vera” series faucets and shower fixtures are very sleek. The tile in the walk-in shower is what truly steals the show! Elongated glass subway tiles 4″ x 12″ in size are accented with waterfalling mosaics from Glazzio.shower

While the wall tiles look smooth and sleek, the floor of this custom shower has an added texture that does bring the outdoors in. Black “pebble” tiles from our Florida Tile line are grouted in place and give a foot massage to bare feet every time you use the shower.

You know that perfect sparkle of fresh snow? These Cambria Quartz “Whitney” counters have that same glimmer when the light hits them. That same glimmer can be found in the crystal-filled wall sconces from Golden Lighting. The “Alston Place” series is available in many different fixture configurations from this single sconce to large chandeliers. smoke_glaze

The double-bowl vanity is full of storage and that “Smoke” glaze really does highlight the details and compliment the other finishes in the bathroom. The shower itself was a unique space. originally tiled with a single size of powder blue ceramic, the new design is a stylish upgrade.beforeshower

When installing a custom-tiled shower, we are able to add storage niches and shelves and benches like the one shown here below. This new shower area was waterproofed and a custom wall niche and corner bench was installed. Pebble tile on base of shower floor. | VillageHomeStores.com
