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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Bettendorf Bathroom Remodel With Double Vanity and Pendant Lights

Bathroom remodel with Dura Supreme Cabinetry in Bettendorf, Iowa. | villagehomestores.com

Who remodels bathroom in the Quad Cities Area? We do? But what if you don’t need it fully gutted and rearranged? Still us! Village Home Stores is in the business of helping you make the most out of every room in your home. Many bathroom and kitchen layouts are already very functional designs, they just need a new look. Our expert remodel team is definitely here to help. Updating your home can add to it’s value and appeal. In this Bettendorf home, we gave an oak and brass Master Bath a new classic look. Marble look quartz counters in Quad Cities. | villagehomestores.com

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

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

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

This bathroom feature also brought a fun detail to our attention. How versatile the Downtown Series of lighting by Kichler is! These same pendants hang in our showroom above a kitchen island display. We have installed them at countless projects used as everything from a single foyer light, to kitchen lighting, and now in a bathroom space. The same light. In the same scale and size. Used in many varieties of styled spaces. Now that is the very definition of Transitional Style. See the same lights here in a past blog feature of a kitchen remodel in a historic home.

Wood Builder Ltd.- Modern Farmhouse Style in Bettendorf, IA

Village Home Stores is known for beautiful remodels but did you know that we also work with many area builders to provide expert design and material selection for their homes?  This stunning kitchen in a Wood Builder Ltd. home is a fantastic example.  Modern Farmhouse style in the new Spencer Hollow in Bettendorf, IA. Let’s take a look around this beautiful new space.
Light gray painted kitchen with gray stained island. Kitchen by Village Home Stores for Wood Builder Ltd. | VillageHomeStores.com

Painted cabinets from our Koch Express line are installed throughout the perimeter of the kitchen. The Windsor doorstyle in a birch wood has been painted with a soft, light-gray color named “Oyster” by Koch.  The cabinetry includes soft-close drawers and classic, slab drawer fronts. A suite of Stainless Steel appliances from our Whirlpool® line complete the look with style and function. This 30″ wide front-control gas range is packed with great features including the innovative new Frozen Bake™ feature by Whirlpool®.

What does Frozen Bake™ mean? It means a meal is as simple as loading in select frozen items like pizza or a lasagna and beginning the baking process without preheating. Skip preheating alltogether and let this range modify cook times and temperatures for you. As a compliment to the soft painted “Oyster” finish on the perimeter, a stain has been applied to the kitchen island. The Lexington doorstyle from our Koch Classic line has been installed in a birch wood with the “Stone” stain applied.

This medium gray tone allows the natural wood grain of the cabinets come through but doesn’t conflict with the other wood tones in the space. The wood flooring and furnishing in the great room all pair well with the gray stain. The best ways to “dress up” an island design without adding legs or decorative details is to just be certain that the exposed ends look great. A smooth, flat panel or finished end look alright on an island but adding elements like applied doors (shown above) help to customize and elevate the design. Furniture baseboard completes the look.

The counters in this kitchen are from our Klondike quartz line. The neutral faux-marble look is named “Calacatta Gold” in the standard “Eased” edge.  Many times when we have a two-toned cabinet layout, the island is a second color of counter material. Here using the same quartz throughout is a clean and classic look. The island top overhangs on two sides to offer seating for three guests.
Kitchen island with Sharp microwave drawer. Kitchen by Village Home Stores for Wood Builder Ltd. | VillageHomeStores.com

A centrally-located kitchen island can be a wonderful location for a microwave drawer. Access to the microwave is available to any user without being in the way of any other prep or cooking. In this kitchen layout a user can be at the main cooktop/range area and someone else can still easily access the microwave or refrigerator. This microwave drawer model from our Sharp® line measures 24″ wide and has been installed in a cabinet including a storage drawer below. You can see in the background of the above image, that a sliding barn door is located in the kitchen. This door installed by Wood Builder Ltd. opens to access a pantry area. There is also a secondary pantry located in the kitchen design. It is a tall cabinet to the left of the refrigerator.

Next to the tall pantry is a 21 cu. ft. side-by-side refrigerator by Whirlpool®.  This counter-depth model is installed back flush with the cabinets and gives a more customized look without much upcharge. It is important to mention also that 21 cu. ft. of storage is a wonderful number for a counter depth model. Freezer storage in a side-by-side refrigerator can already be a bit limited but this counter-depth model includes In-Door-Ice® Storage. This means that the icemaker and bin have been moved to the door to make more usable shelf space available.
