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.

Aspen Homes- Classic White on White Kitchen Perfection

There is nothing more classic and transitional for a kitchen than a white painted cabinet. Add to that a glossy white subway tile and a shiplap ceiling and you have yourself a stunning design. (Googles classic white kitchen) Results: this Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen in a home built by Aspen Homes LLCBettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

A white painted shaker-style door and a package of Stainless Steel appliances by Whirlpool. The cabinetry is from our Koch Classic line in the Savannah Door and Maple wood White Paint. Your designer at Village Home Stores will discuss with you how a tall wall cabinet door may look in your doorstyle. In some cases, you may have a choice of layout or want to select another option. We love the symmetrical look of these center divided doors.
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

Speaking of symmetry, the cooking zone of the kitchen is a bright and balanced design. Whirlpool’s front-control gas range is a clean slide-in look and lets the backsplash shine. A wood hood offers a clean and customized look and has been fit with a Broan insert. This insert boasts 390 CFMs for ventilation when needed.Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

Tone-on-tone designs can be so clean and calming for a busy household. As a modern and updated twist on a classic subway tile, these tiles are a beveled style. This look allows light to bounce around and adds a lot of texture to the design without adding another color. A section of glass doors is found on the wall that hosts the refrigerator and microwave drawer.
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

Plenty of storage in the main cabinetry design plus a corner walk-in pantry. At the center of the kitchen is an island with the sink and dishwasher. A classic layout for a classic kitchen design. Notice how the cabinetry and crown extend to the ceiling in this kitchen. It even extends beyond the wall cabinetry sections and continues to ribbon around the entire kitchen (see angled wall above pantry door below)

A classic look of marble with the maintenance-free benefits of quartz. The counters throughout this kitchen are by Cambria Quartz in the Swanbridge design. An undermounted sink in an e-granite material gives a softer, more matte finish look. Notice that the center divider in this Elkay sink is lowered?
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

This is a feature to allow you to fit wider items into the sink to wash (think large pans with handles) but the shallow “Aqua Divide” divider gives you the option to have a shallow fill for your sink to soak some items. Check out the lines the lighting selections create a a bold, dark finish contrast to the white-on-white design:
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

A shiplap ceiling treatment sets the stage for two schoolhouse-shaped pendants above the kitchen and a simple chandelier in the Dining Room. A seeded glass on the Feiss “Alcott” pendants diffuses the bulb brightness a bit and adds a fun texture. The 9-light chandelier in the Dining Room is named “Hartford” and is from our ELK line.

Don’t forget that when you are building a new home and purchase all of your materials from our store in multiple departments you can earn FREE lighting for your new home. Learn more about that Bundle Your Purchases program here at our in-store promotions page. This home also had design and product in many other rooms including this Master Bath.

You don’t need a medicine cabinet to get great bathroom storage! In fact… what can you even fit into a medicine cabinet anymore? Go deeper with a wall cabinet that extends down to your countertop. Added drawers for hair appliances and makeup are a wonderful touch. Many times our builders will even add an outlet concealed behind the door of the cabinets because you can never have enough outlets!

We are so lucky to partner with a local builder that masters this look in a refined and stylish way. Take a look at the kitchen in an urban farmstead recently built by Applestone Homes in the heart of the Iowa Quad Cities.

The Modern Farmhouse style is about large, airy, and spacious spaces full of character and texture. Kitchen designs including islands and casual dining spaces built for gathering. Finding new ways to style a space with antiques and unique pieces. Nothing new to our Quad Cities market! The perimeter of this kitchen design includes cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Prairie” door and painted “Pearl” finish.

If large spaces for gathering to prepare, eat, and enjoy means Modern Farmhouse… this island is expert-level farmhouse! Just look at that huge, open counter perfect for so many functions. Large drawer stacks face the cooking zone of the kitchen for pots, pans, and serving dishes. The island and pantry cabinets are in the “Hastings” door and a Rustic Beech wood stained the “Stone” finish.

One huge advantage to embracing the Modern Farmhouse style in the Quad Cities vs. anywhere else… the views out of the window. An apron-front sink that looks out to watch the Midwest seasons change is one of the best gifts you can give any new home owner.

We love the back panel design selected for the kitchen island. The “X” style is a nod to barn doors and also helps to break up the smooth paneled surface. We didn’t just provide the kitchen cabinetry design for this home. We also provided a bar area and bath cabinetry.

This Master Bathroom is so gorgeous. The same “Stone” stain in a Rustic Beech wood has been applied to the “Vicksburg” doorstyle. We love the break in the heights and depths of the cabinetry. It creates interest and helps to divide the two sink areas.Vanity tops with integrated sinks make for easy cleanup. A two-toned color selection from The Onyx Collection gives the illusion of an under-mounted vanity bowl.

In the Powder Room is a furniture-style vanity. Some hidden storage beneath the sink and an open shelf below. This entire home is Modern Farmhouse perfection! We are always so happen when our products can be installed expertly and then styled tastefully. Applestone Homes masters both of these key elements in creating a comfortable but impressive new home for their clients.

Tim Dolan Development- Bettendorf Iowa Kitchen Showcases New Traditional Trends

This Fall in the Quad Cities we again had the pleasure of seeing our designs and products in many of the QCBR Parade of Homes listings. We have so many opportunities to showcase before and after remodel stories here on the blog. Truth is, we love any chance we can get to also remind you that we can help you if your dream kitchen is in a brand new home you are building! Take a look at this gorgeous example of New Traditional style in Bettendorf, IA in a home built by Tim Dolan Development.

A classic selection of a white painted flat-panel doorstyle is paired with many other on-trend choices for the finished space. The cabinetry is from our Koch Classic line in the “Bristol” door. This door is a clean look with a shaker edge applied and smooth, slab-style drawer fronts.

This is a “Full Overlay” style cabinet which means that the doors and drawer front span across the cabinet faceframe fully. This gives a more customized look to a row of cabinetry and shows less gaps between cabinets. Another custom detail is the built-in refrigerator that has been fit with panels made specifically to fit this 36″ wide model from KitchenAid®. This bottom-mount freezer model includes a platinum interior, spill-resist glass shelves, LED lighting and a built-in icemaker.

There is plenty of storage within the kitchen and access to a walk-in pantry area centrally located in the layout. As you turn the corner you see the main focal point of the kitchen is the wood hood and large range centered on the back wall. This sloping wood hood has been painted to match the kitchen cabinetry and trimmed out in the same crown and under-cabinet molding as the kitchen perimeter. A Broan® internal blower insert and assembly fit with 900 CFM’s is concealed within it.

The cooking zone of this kitchen design has access to the Sharp® microwave drawer in the kitchen island as well as a 48″ gas range packed with features. This 6-burner range from KitchenAid® includes an easy-to-clean chrome electric griddle surface.

A Dual Fuel gas range means that you get the immediate control of heat in a gas cooktop plus the accuracy and consistency of an electric oven for baking. Cook more at once with two oven areas together totaling 6.3 cu. ft. capacity.
Painted white cabinetry and gray quartz counters. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Tim Dolan Development. | VillageHomeStores.com

Engineered quartz countertops have been installed in a color named “Fossil Grey” with a standard “Eased” edge applied. Quartz provides an durable, nonporous surface perfect for a busy kitchen ready for entertaining. Selecting a subtle grey quartz for the counter is both classic and on-trend right now. This quartz counter leaves the perfect base for adding a jaw-dropping tile backsplash in the kitchen.

A 4″ x 12″ elongated gray tile from American Olean’s Stonepeak line is stunning! Available in both glossy (shown) and matte finishes, this “Auru” series can be used in so many styles of spaces! The “Slate” color here gives a trendy ombre detail but the pattern and surroundings ground it back to a Traditional style.

The ceramic delft blue accessories paired with clean whites and the tiled walls give us  bit of a wanderlust for a trip to the Greek Islands or a farmhouse in the South of France. The kitchen has an almost dreamy atmosphere from the light that hangs above the kitchen island.

4 candelabra lights filter through a metal screen shade and cast a unique shadow on the ceiling and surrounding wall cabinets. This light is from Savoy House, a new line we just added to the showroom. The fixture is named “Structure” and we just love it!

We provided all of the lighting for this new home. Our New Construction Lighting Expert helped select and budget with the builder to create a functional and stylish lighting package. The “Winton” 12-light chandelier from CraftMade Lighting pairs a weather wood look with dark bronze details.

We didn’t just provide a beautiful kitchen design for this new Bettendorf, IA home. We also helped to complete the flooring surfaces, bathrooms, lighting, and even specialty areas like this builtin hutch in the hallway. See the full album of photos including these other spaces here on our award-winning Houzz portfolio.

The entire Great Room includes a Living room area, alcove sun room area, casual dining space, and the kitchen. This has been covered with an engineered hardwood from our Canoe Bay line. 7″ wide planks from the Key West series are a White Oak in the “Lighthouse” finish. The white painted kitchen on the light oak floors are a dreamy pair!
