White and Mocha New Home Kitchen In Bettendorf Iowa for Applestone Homes

We have seen a lot of two-tone painted kitchen designs lately so how about some wood in the mix? We love the kitchen in this new home built in Bettendorf, Iowa by Applestone Homes. This kitchen design with Koch Cabinetry from Village Home Stores blends bright white paint, “Mocha” wood, and a subtle blue wall tile together for a great finished look. With nods to both New Traditional and Farmhouse styles there are lots of great details throughout this new home. Let’s take a look around.

The finishes in this open concept kitchen are soothing and sophisticated. But once you pick your jaw up off the floor from what it looks like, you get a chance to appreciate how it functions. This open and airy layout with a centered single-level island is ideal for one user or many! Because of the placement of the cooking, cleanup, and available prep zones, you could comfortably have three active users plus someone even doing their homework at the end of the island.

Koch Classic Cabinetry in the Maple “Bristol” door is painted in a “White” finish. Storage is key in an open concept kitchen design like this. You want to have everything accessible… but out of sight when not being used. Cluttered counters and open shelf carts full of pans and utensils can take away from a gorgeous and serene kitchen like this. In the cooking zone we have surrounded the range user with three wide and deep drawer stacks to move into. Here you can keep pots, pans, lids, baking dishes, and even small appliances within reach when needed.

Keeping utilitarian items out of sight when the kitchen isn’t active helps to keep this kitchen clean and serene throughout the day. Many busy households find the need to up their fresh and frozen food capacity. This layout includes space for an all refrigerator on one end of the sink wall and an all freezer unit on the other. This is a restaurant-level feature and can sometimes take away from a kitchen design. This finished kitchen design softens the amount of stainless steel by surrounding the units with wood panels and cabinets above. The view of the Iowa Quad Cities countryside honestly steals the show on this wall. We love the look of this farm sink but even more, we are jealous of anyone who gets to use it and gaze out at the creek.

The image below of our masked intern will give you a little hint as to when we photographed this finished kitchen. The Spring and Summer of 2020 are seasons none of us will forget and they resulted in a lot of changes in our industry and of course the local market for new and existing homes. As we approach the Fall, one thing we can all agree on is every home needs one OR MORE work from home or e-learning setups. This kitchen island can be an excellent temporary workspace. So much great bright daylight (for those zoom or google classroom meetings) and an outlet on the end to plug in your devices.

The kitchen island is finished in a “Mocha” stain from our Koch Classic line. This stain has been applied on the same “Bristol” door in a Rustic Birch wood. The end result is the look of a rich, rustic Cherry wood that blends well with medium wood tones like the flooring and furniture in this home. That same wood tone is repeated in the range hood and the gorgeous stacked crown detail where the walls meet the ceiling. One wall of the kitchen design is home to a bank of tall pantry cabinets. The top sections of the doors as well as the two cabinet doors surrounding the range hood have been fit with antique mirrored glass. This gives you the option to store whatever you would like behind the doors without having to style them as a display.

When you work with a kitchen designer at Village Home Stores we can help you decide not just what cabinets fit in your space, but what available storage you will end up with once everything is installed. We often showcase pullout upgrades and specialty inserts but don’t forget that basic open shelf cabinets can house a lot of items. We have many options to upgrade shelf construction and add sliding shelves in some locations. In some cases, just adding an extra interior shelf may be a great upgrade for a very minimal cost.

As taller ceiling heights remain to be a trend in new homes, the “standard” 30″ tall wall cabinet has become a thing of the past. We can order a variety of wall cabinet heights. Some of the newer industry standards have become 36″ and 42″ tall but we can order any and all heights. Press play below to see a short video tour of this kitchen design:

We also provided cabinetry for the rest of this Bettendorf home. The primary bathroom (shown below) repeated the same Bristol doorstyle but this time in a cooler “Stone” stain on Birch wood. Two sink bases and a centered stack of drawers provide plenty of counter space between the two vanity sinks.

We love the creativity of Applestone Homes. There is always something new and unexpected in every home they build. The lower level bar in this property is no exception. This design only requires 3 cabinets and looks incredible! A back bar with sinkbase and full height door storage plus a front bar with an X design installed on site.

Hazelwood Homes- Coal Valley, IL Kitchen With Family Friendly Farmhouse Style

We are so blessed to be able to become a part of the building process for our customers. Anything we can do to make that process more easy and of course exciting is such a great part of our work. This new home built in Coal Valley, IL by Hazelwood Homes is one of our favorite recently completely projects. This busy family wanted a stylish space but one that can be enjoyed and lived in as well.
White painted kitchen and nearby dining room in farmhouse style. New home in Coal Valley, IL built by Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

An “open concept” layout is certainly the direction most new home plans are going. This home includes a great room that opens up into a dining space and then the kitchen. Now casual family moments and even more formal meals can all be shared within this family-friendly space. Having the kitchen within reach of the play areas and main social spaces of a home can be so helpful for families with younger children. Even though we are calling this kitchen “family friendly” we still believe it still could grace the cover of a glossy magazine don’t you?
White painted cabinets in a farmhouse style kitchen in the Quad Cities. Home built by Hazelwood Homes | VillageHomeStores.com

Flat-panel, “Ridgegate” cabinets in a “White” paint are a classic choice from our Koch line. Modern Farmhouse details like Hickory hand-scraped wood floors and a farm sink help to nudge this Transitional style kitchen into the Farmhouse Transitional style category. Wall cabinets stretch just shy of the ceilings leaving enough room for a stacked crown molding detail. So much storage throughout plus a glass-door corner pantry area (shown below with someone sneaking a snack).

“Fossil Grey” quartz counters mimic an almost cement slab look on the perimeter of the kitchen and Cambria® Quartz “Brittanicca” graces the center of the kitchen on the island. This beautiful look of natural stone suggests marble with the no-maintenance appeal of Cambria®! This non-porous, durable product is a fantastic choice for counters in this busy family hub!

With the wall cabinets so tall, a stacked look to the doors was desired to avoid long, exaggerated doors to open and close. Many kitchens with this look include floating shelves. The look can be great, but difficult to keep clean. You also become limited to weight the floating shelves may hold. Consider glass-front cabinets as an option to still give an open look. One section of this kitchen design has been arranged as a built-in hutch area (see above).

The main kitchen perimeter includes just glass inserts in the top section for a “clerestory” effect. This hutch area section includes glass door inserts entirely. The finished look is clean and stylish. We love how the dishes and glassware are able to be displayed but kept from dust. The kitchen backsplash adds to the white-on-white space a new texture and design detail. An “Arabesque” shape tile in a glossy “Coronado” color  helps add curvy intertwining lines to soften the look of the kitchen. Of course we can never mention a stunning backsplash without also reminding you it is being washed with light by our Diode undercabinet lighting system. There is no better way to showcase your new kitchen investments than with this low-voltage lighting.

The refrigerator for this kitchen is located right at the entrance from the Dining area. A KitchenAid® 20 cu. ft. counter-depth model has a deep cabinet above and a refrigerator end panel on the right side of the unit for a built in look. A “family-friendly” kitchen without water in the door?!? Well, this French Door unit may be shallower to allow maximum walkway throughout the kitchen…but it does still have water and ice!
french-door-refrigerator

The filtered water is just inside of the door and an icemaker is located down in the freezer drawer. Including the icemaker and ice storage down below frees up more space in the fresh food storage area that can become quickly crowded in a counter-depth model. Cooking and baking just got a lot more stylish and easier for this family as well!

A 48″ wide commercial-style KitchenAid®  gas range is the focal point of the entire kitchen. With two ovens and 6 burners this duel fuel range can prepare a meal for the smallest or largest of crowds! The ovens include Convection baking, roasting, and broiling settings plus the KitchenAid® EasyConvect™ takes the intimidation and guesswork out of convection.

An easy-to-clean electric chrome griddle is also a part of this 48″ wide unit. What an all-star appliance choice! Village Home Stores isn’t just Cabinetry and Counters. We also offer Appliance Sales and Service, Lighting, Flooring, and Blinds and Shades. Did you know that when you are building a home you can purchase the products you need from all departments of our store and end up receiving credit for free lighting because of it!? We offer a Local Low Price Guarantee plus a lighting bundle that can save you a significant amount of money! 

We love the lighting that was selected throughout this entire home. The kitchen lighting is so perfectly paired with the style of the space. It keeps the space feeling light and bright and doesn’t distract from the other focal areas of the kitchen. Above the farmhouse style kitchen sink is a white and chrome pendant light by Golden Lighting.

Working with an expert lighting staff when building makes the designing and selection process easier on you. Don’t spend months and months driving all around the area to handfuls of specialty shops. Come to the experts at Village Home Stores. Above the kitchen island hang two “Tabby” glass mini pendants from our Feiss line.

We love how the clear glass keeps the space feeling bright and open. The kitchen island includes a microwave drawer from Sharp®. This microwave option is wonderful for busy families. Easy to reach and plenty of counter space above it, microwave drawers can be a wonderful option for your kitchen design. The microwave controls for this unit can be found on the tilt-out panel on the top frame of the unit. This sleek new design allows for the Sharp® unit to pair well with many appliance styles and brands.

Bob Walter Homes- Stunning New Home in Rural Iowa

This week’s featured project is a brand new home built by Bob Walter Homes in rural Iowa. Bob Walter, known for a tradition of excellence, has truly built a gorgeous home! It was a huge pleasure to work with him and these clients to design and provide the cabinetry and lighting for these spaces.  We hope you enjoy taking a look around this stunning new home.

A non-beaded inset cabinet with 5-piece drawer fronts in the “Fairfield” door style lines the perimeter of the kitchen in a Maple wood custom painted with a Sherwin Williams color named “Balanced Beige”. Dovetailed drawers throughout with undermounted full-extension solt-close drawer guides. The inset doors have concealed inset hinges with soft-close feature.

The kitchen island is constructed of a doorstyle named “American” also inset into the faceframe. A Maple wood has been stained in a medium gray “Tarragon” finish. We love the pairing of the cabinet finishes with the varied wood tones in the floors.

The kitchen is from our Custom Amish-made line of cabinetry Das Holz Haus. Located out in the beautiful plains of Illinois, this custom cabinet line is our finest available. From our designs DHH is able to create a superior product with attention every single detail. We take great pride in providing this line to our customers. Knowing they are investing in the very best available and their cabinetry is constructed as an entire project, not piece by piece. While our clients may be investing in this line for construction, what’s outside is not to go unnoticed.

With DHH feeling is believing. What we mean by this is the finish of this product is something that you truly must experience in our showroom. We believe the finish of the product DHH provides for our customers is unmatched by anyone else in our region. That is why we have selected them to be a part of our product lineup at Village Home Stores. Working with a completely custom line makes spaces like this Laundry Room far easier to achieve:

The same “Fairfield” doorstyle from the kitchen is repeated in the Laundry Room but this time a paint named “Knitting Needles” is applied. This space is ready to not just act as a laundry room but so much more. An incredible amount of storage throughout including a bench area with storage drawers below.

We would guess you aren’t looking at the storage drawers below now though…. how about those custom barn doors!?! If including a barn door in your space is on your wish list then don’t hesitate to discuss it with your designer at Village Home Stores. We can make your dream space a reality! We didn’t just provide expert design and custom cabinetry for this home we also provided the lighting.

Including open concept layouts into new homes has made a big impact on the importance of creating a cohesive style to your home. Our new home lighting specialist works closely with you and your budget to help determine your own personal style and tastes. We carefully consider location, scale and how well fixtures near each other can compliment the overall look. The images above represent what fixtures were selected for the lighting visible throughout the Great Room space. (left) The Foyer light by DVI Lighting is in Oil Rubbed Bronze and the Dining Room lighting (center) is a series from our Kichler line that includes rustic wood details. A 15-light chandelier (right) hangs in the center of the Great Room by Feiss.

In the lower level of the home we provided lighting and custom cabinetry. How amazing does this farmhouse style billiard fixture look above the table!?! This 3-light fixture from our ELK line includes a centered pulley to raise and lower the unit if needed.

Just beyond the billiard table is a stunning new home bar area. The “Athena” door is inset and stain in the same Maple “Tarragon” finish from the upstairs kitchen island. With closed storage and plenty of open shelves this home bar is gorgeous!

This space would make even a stylish NYC bar owner jealous. The layout, the details, and the lighting all make the space so polished. Pendant lighting from our ELK line and wall sconces by Feiss complete the look. We are certainly ready to pull up a barstool.

But if sitting at the bar isn’t your thing perhaps visiting this Wine Cellar area is? The “Leland” 3-light metal drum pendant by Uttermost is a great centerpiece to the space.

Of course all of the bedrooms need to have a stylish lighting plan in place as well. Our favorite is the Master Bedroom which includes the “Aveline” mini chandelier by Feiss. Elements Home Furnishings and Interior Design did an incredible job stylish this home. We are in awe of this completed Master Suite.

Two wall sconces flank a built-in bench area in the Master Bedroom. The 1-light sconces are from the same series of lighting named “Aveline” by Feiss. In fact a third light from that series is repeated above the tub in the Master Bath. Wall sconces by DVI Lighting flank the framed mirrors.

The Master Bathroom vanity area is designed using DHH’s “Villa” door in a Cherry wood. The rich, warm stain is named “Amber” and includes some distressing for added detail. There were a number of other bathrooms in this home but we did want to share some of them to give you an idea of the variety of styles we can and do see in new homes today.

Gone are the days of ordering one door and finish for an entire home of cabinetry. Instead, we are excited that every space in a home is now treated as it’s own concept. The main Guest Bathroom cabinetry (above) is the same doorstyle as the kitchen. Knotty Alder wood has been stained in an “Anise” stain. A new detail to note is look closely at the corners of the cabinet doors. These doors are still inset in the faceframe but raised pegs have been added for an extra detail.

That same Knotty Alder wood is repeated in the main floor hall bathroom. This time the alder is stained in a color called “Sand Keepsake” with a heavy distressing applied. Open shelves give a more furniture look to the vanities and the copper bowls on top are beautiful.

The lighting you select for your home becomes the “jewelry” of the entire finished look. Our lighting experts will help guide you and keep you on track for what is needed and what will work best for the space and your project’s budget. This home also includes a relaxing Outdoor Living Room space we provided lighting and fans for. These lanterns are from our Minka-Lavery line.

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. This L-shaped kitchen design sits in a great room layout that or open, bright and stylish. The “Legacy” door from our Koch Classic line in their painted “White” finish paired with a Cherry wood stained “Stone” in the same door. “Calcutta Gold” Engineered Quartz tops and a  Whirlpool® Stainless Steel appliance suite complete the look. White kitchen with long subway tile Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
