Annawan, IL- Schoolhouse Bathroom Remodel

This old schoolhouse in Annawan, IL is full of great character. Tall ceilings with exposed tin panels, and a unique layout. Rustic Beech wood Koch cabinetry in the Briarwood stain and a Black Accent Glaze was the perfect choice to help showcase the other rustic material selections for this remodeled bathroom space. The main wall includes a vanity cabinet with an offset sink and stack of drawers. We ordered a matching mirror molding to wrap a custom-sized mirror perfect for the room. The new tiled shower is accessed right behind the vanity wall.Bathroom remodel in Annawan, IL with rustic details.

When remodeling, nobody wants to see wall surface go unused. Bathrooms can become a tricky area to add any storage space once all of the areas are designated to a fixture location (stool, sink, doorway, window, shower, etc). Village Home Stores also can order and install interior doors to match your remodel space. This bathroom has two walls that have each been fit with a new door. One is accessed from the nearby bedroom, the other is from the hallway. With two doorways and a window, available wall space was limited. But we found some room for storage. The window wall is now home to the stool and a lot of great storage. Bathroom remodel in Annawan, IL with rustic details.

A tall linen cabinet fits in the corner of the new space. A linen cabinet can be helpful at any depth. Standard depths are 12″, 18″, 21″, and 24″ deep but we are able to order a custom depth cabinet to perfectly fit any space and utilize as much of that area as possible. Even just a 12″ deep linen cabinet can offer so much shelf space for toiletries and linens.

A cabinet commonly used in a bathroom is a “toilet topper” cabinet. With bathrooms trending away from medicine cabinets and instead using more framed mirrors, these can be a great solution for small item storage. Deep enough for rolls of toilet paper, and typically including a towel bar or open shelf below, these cabinets are a great addition to any space. Even with all of the extra storage cabinets, there is storage available within reach of the bath vanity area itself. 

A single sinkbase cabinet and a stack of drawers are arranged with an offset vanity bowl. Our Onyx Collection vanity tops are a great option for a bathroom. This top is in the “Prospect” color. Seamless, integrated bowls (shown here with a two-tone “Icicle” bowl for the illusion of an undermount sink) and the ability to fit any custom layout or space. Ask a designer at Village Home Stores about the many color and bowl styles available in this product. 

The exposed tin ceilings and textured wallpaper in this old schoolhouse are such interesting design details to let be showcased above the “new” walls of the bathroom. Those rustic characteristics become a great compliment to the tile materials selected for this bathroom. Faux brick tiles from our Chicago Brick line in the “State Street” color are installed as the main bathroom floor. This custom tiled shower is accessed as a door-less, walk-in shower around the corner behind the vanity wall.  The shower floor is a Pebble mosaic named “Born Wilderness”.

“Look-alike” tile is a great trend that helps add great textures to a space in a more practical tile surface for the homeowner. We have seen this brick-look tile used in so many unique spaces since we began carrying it. It works well as a floor and wall tile. If you would like to see it, we have a large area of our new lighting showroom with it installed as a floor tile. The wall of the shower is another look-alike tile. 

The look of a rustic barnwood but in a long, plank wall tile. The “Charleston” 3″ x 36″ tiles add such a blend of textures and natural colors. We included plenty of grab bars in the new shower space.  A custom tiled niche was added on the interior wall with the same pebble tile used as an accent in the back.

Applestone Homes- An Urban Farmstead in the Iowa QC

The Modern Farmhouse style has taken the ENTIRE country by storm. Of course the Midwest Region has embraced this style because… well we were all already on board! 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.

Coal Valley, IL- A Master Bathroom Takes “Shape”

In our last feature post we shared a tour of a stylish and sophisticated kitchen remodel. That same home in Coal Valley, IL also includes a remodeled Master Suite area just as stunning! A sliding barn door in the Master Bath opens to reveal a walk-in closet, makeup vanity room, and a beautiful bathroom space.

Just like the kitchen, this bathroom began in a beige setting with a medium Oak vanity. A wall-to-wall installation of vanity and top included a cultured marble vanity top with two integrated bowls.

The new vanity area now includes an inset White painted vanity from our Dura Supreme line. The “Highland” doorstyle is inset into the vanity face frame for a classic and stylish look. White wall paneling has been installed throughout the new bathroom and is divided up to create shapely pattern.
Remodeled Quad Cities bathroom with inset cabinetry by Dura Supreme. | VillageHomeStores.comShapes and shadows are truly the centerpiece to the details in this Master Bath. From the inset door edges, to the unique wall sconces, everything makes a statement. We love that the accents of gold from the other areas of the home have made it into this Master Suite.

The wall sconces are mounted directly through the wall-to-wall mirror. This helps keep the bathroom space seem more open and airy by having the maximum amount of mirror available to bounce and reflect light around.
Remodeled Quad Cities bathroom with inset cabinetry by Dura Supreme and Cambria Quartz counters. | VillageHomeStores.comThese 2-light fixtures are from the George Kovacs collection by Minka. The Honey Gold finish and white fabric shade are right in place with the rest of the materials selected. The squared off corners of the gold frame reflect and create an almost greek key design.

Beneath the mirror and sconces sits a gorgeous new vanity top. Instead of a double bowl vanity, a single offset layout has been installed. This allows for more countertop space and allows the pattern of Cambria® Quartz “Brittanicca” to take center stage. A clean and stylish blend of whites and grays, this quartz has a natural marble look with the maintenance-free perks Cambria® offers. The vanity top has a “Large Ogee Edge” applied.

With a vanity area that stunning how could a shower still grab your attention? Well… we removed the shower curtain to take a few photos so you can get the full wow-factor!

We were correct about that wow-factor weren’t we? Using a dark gray grout here helps to enhance the geometric pattern of the tile installation. This tile by Florida Tile is appropriately named “Hex” is a glossy white hexagon pattern.

Proof that you do not  need a mosaic of colors to make a bold statement with tile, this shower is amazing! A mix of two shapes of the same colored tile installed in a modern look. We love the stacked install on these long, horizontal tiles.

One the wall opposite the shower head is a custom tiled niche area. Inside of that niche the same “Hex” tile has been used and glass shelves allow light to pass through. Including a custom shelf or niche is always helpful when planning a tiled shower.

Many times custom tiled showers include a tiled base for the floor. This customer wanted to avoid grout lines to be cleans on the floor and instead chose a stylish shower base custom made for her by the Onyx Collection. This base is poured in Kansas and available in many colors and can be customized to even the strangest of shapes. A textured pattern is included in the base for added traction. The color selected for this bathroom is named “Constellation” and it is a great compliment to the dark gray grout.

Aspen Homes- Baths, Laundry and Lighting Complete The Home

Village Home Stores isn’t just beautiful kitchen designs. We also have products and services for the rest of the rooms throughout your home. Today let’s take a tour of some of the other areas of this Apsen Homes LLC parade home beginning in the Master Bathroom.
Master Bathroom cabinetry in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

Far atop the wishlists of most of our clients… storage! This is the case in a kitchen and especially in a bathroom. With medicine cabinets becoming a thing of the past, framed mirrors offer style but no storage. The vanity area in a bathroom is where a designer must get creative to add as much storage as possible without overcrowding the area.
Master Bathroom cabinetry in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

Dividing the space between the two vanity sinks is a tall wall cabinet with a single drawer. These 12″ deep cabinets can accommodate a LOT of items within. Plenty of counter space is still surrounding the area and now storage is right within reach without even bending down to reach it!
Master Bathroom cabinetry in a Bettendorf, IA home. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.com

The vanity includes two sink base cabinets and a large stack of drawers at the center. Cabinetry in the Master Bath is from our Koch Classic line in the “Legacy” door and Cherry wood stained the same “Stone” stain as the kitchen.  A Black accent glaze has been applied to highlight the details of the doors and drawerfronts.  The double-bowl vanity top is an Engineered Quartz.

Klondike’s “Calcutta Gold” quartz spreads the full width of the vanity with a backsplash and end splashes applied. Rectangle vanity sinks have been undermounted to the quartz and 8″ cc faucets in a bright polished chrome complete the look.  Two of the other bathrooms include a cultured marble vanity top. Cultured marble is a term for a molded top that includes an integrated vanity sink when it is made.

These tops are made in the U.S.A. from our Onyx Collection line. Standard sizes or custom, Onyx can make a top for your project. The look of cultured marble has changed dramatically over the years. What used to be a glossy, marbled look is now sleek and modern. Faux granites have replaced marbles and solid, matte finish tops like these are a classic choice.

The “Matte White” finish from the Onyx Collection with wave bowls look classic and are a fantastic value for the price. The Matte finish from Onyx is also repairable if scratched!

This option keeps items fresh in the washer for up to 12 hours after the wash cycle has ended. A built-in fan begins after the wash cycle is over, tumbling clothes so you can move them over to the dryer whenever you are ready.Minka fan in a Bettendorf, IA great room. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Aspen Homes LLC. | VillageHomeStores.comAlso within reach of the kitchen is a living room space as part of the great room. The ceiling treatment in this room is breathtaking. A large fan from our Minka Aire line is a rich contrast to the white on white grid pattern of the ceiling. Our best selling fan for new homes is our “Mojo” fan from the same brand. Here it is in an adorably staged bedroom in this parade home.Minka Mojo fan in a Bettendorf, IA home.

See this blog tour here at this link. The lantern-style lights that hang above the island are gorgeous. They are typically the style and size you may see in hung in the foyer of a home. The foyer light that was selected for this home also has a lantern shape and it is a knockout! Capital light fixture in a Bettendorf, IL home.

This 6-light fixture from Capital Lighting has style and sophistication. An oval within a rectangle  box and a 6-light candelabra in the center. The ovals seem to be “fastened” with a gold band to the rectangles. We also love the seeded glass Kichler light fixture selected for the home office. Seeded glass detail of Kichler fixture in a Bettendorf, IA home.

Davenport, IA- a Pink Bathroom is a Thing of the Past

Village Home Stores has quickly become the destination and expert source for kitchen remodeling in the extended Quad Cities region. Did you know that we also complete many bath remodels too? Our expert staff can help you with design and material selection for your remodel. Better yet, use our complete Project Management Program and let us handle it all for you from start to finish. This Davenport, Iowa bathroom did just that. We helped take it from a dated bubblegum pink to a bright, clean new look and layout.

White the exit of all of those pink fixtures was a large part of the transformation, so was creating a new complete design for the bathroom. In this case, a tub/shower combination needed to be replaced with a new tiled shower space. With that change came the opportunity to update the bath vanity, lighting, and flooring surfaces. A Davenport, IA bathroom designed and remodeled completely from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Out with the pink bathroom fixtures and in with a bright, clean new palette of finishes. A tile named “Melena” in a 13″ x 13″ size is installed as the bathroom floor and a custom tiled shower uses that same tile in a 2″ x 2″ size for the floor, corner bench, and custom niche shelf. 3″ x 6″ matte finish subway tile gives a classic look and a medium gray grout is right on trend.

If getting started or discovering your own personal tastes and color inspiration sounds overwhelming, we can help with that. Just one quick visit to this board on our Pinterest page will help you see material selection mood boards and click through to the projects we have featured with that color palette. In this space, a new bathroom vanity has been installed from our Koch Classic line. The classic shaker-style door is named “Savannah” and maple wood has been painted with Koch’s “White” painted finish.

A cultured marble vanity top from our Onyx Collection line is installed from wall-to-wall. The color used here is named “Dove”. The Onyx Collection is a Midwest-made product and can be custom ordered to any size and shape. With many color and finish options available, this line has taken the traditional marbled look of vanity tops and introduced a flecked faux granite/quartz approach to their designs. Select from dozens of unique integrated bowl shapes or add an undermounted bowl (shown below) for a true stone-top look.

The “Cassidy” series by Delta Faucets is installed on the vanity and in the custom tiled shower. The shower includes a removable hand-held showerhead feature. A large percentage of the bath remodels we complete at Village Home Stores involve removing a large tub and replacing that space with a larger shower area. The easiest and most effective way to use your space is to do this by creating a custom tiled area for the shower. Unusual wall locations, ceiling angles, and previously unused areas can all become a part of a custom shower. It is very important to note that many times the motivation of our customers to add this shower space is to have the option to age-at-home.A Davenport, IA bathroom designed and remodeled completely from start to finish by Village Home Stores including a custom tiled shower. | VillageHomeStores.com

Remodeling with the goal to age-at-home is becoming a motivator to many of our clients.  One of the most important areas to address to make this possible is making the home’s bathroom space accessible. Adding easily accessible areas and including features like grab bars allow our customers the ability to do just that! These grab bars from Delta look right at home in the new bathroom. The Delta Decor Assist TP Holder includes a grab bar within the TP holder design!

For more inspiration for a custom tiled shower be sure to check out this Houzz ideabook  There we share great tile combination ideas as well as custom niches and benches. Including something like the small corner bench (shown below) allow you a more versatile space without borrowing too much of your space.

Purchasing the right window treatment can be an important part of completing your overall finished space. Have you ever tried to purchase standard ready-made blinds only to not like the look or even worse…replace them just months later with another option? Get it right the first time and have us measure and make the perfect custom solution by Oxford House. This bathroom included A classic “Honeycomb” blind with a top down, bottom up feature allows them to block just certain areas from light.
