Tim Dolan Development- Spring Parade Home 2017

This Spring we have the great pleasure to have our designs and products included in a number of homes included in the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Association Spring Parade of Homes. This home built by Tim Dolan Development includes all cabinetry, counters, appliances, lighting, and floorcovering from our store. Just in case you can’t make it to the parade, we wanted to take the opportunity to show you around this beautiful kitchen design.

Painted white cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been installed in the “Savannah” doorstyle along the kitchen perimeter. Gray “Stone” stained Birch cabinets in the same doorstyle create a unique island design. The L-shape of the layout includes a focal wall with a gas cooktop from KitchenAid® and a decorative wood hood above.

Surrounding the gas cooktop area is a stunning hood design including carved brackets, glass-door cabinets and a section of cabinets that extend all the way down to the counters. These two narrow cabinets that frame in the cooktop area are actually pullout spice racks:

Pullout cabinetry can be used in a number of locations and for a number of tasks. Consider a deeper pullout option as a base cabinet. Bathroom vanity areas can also be wonderful locations for pullout storage for cosmetics or hair appliances. Press play below to see these pullout spice racks transform from accessibly and convenient to completely concealed

The 30″ gas cooktop by KitchenAid® is a 5-burner layout with full-width cast iron grates. The tile backsplash throughout the kitchen is a stylish elongated tile with texture. The tile is from the Artigiano series in the “Venice Statue” color. This backsplash tile is a perfect compliment to the gray quartz counters.

A 30″ wide combination microwave and wall oven is built-in to this wall of the kitchen design. This versatile appliance by KitchenAid® allows the use of the microwave cavity to be used as a secondary oven when needed. A French Door counter-depth refrigerator is a stunning investment in this appliance package.

This new model by KitchenAid® includes features like a Platinum interior and Panoramic LED interior lighting. The Preserva® foodcare system provides the very best in food preservation so your fresh foods stay that way longer. Metal and wood accents help to make this refrigerator really gorgeous! Gorgeous? You better believe it! This refrigerator looks incredible in the new kitchen…but open up the doors and the real showcase begins!

Other features include KitchenAid®’s PrintSheild™ finish to help resist smudges and fingerprinting and a 3-tier self-closing freezer drawer. There are so many incredible other features that you just have to see in person to experience. One of our favorites is a small removable prep zone tray that can be used for all kinds of prep including marinating meats or taken directly from the refrigerator to the oven.

A large, single-level island sits at the very center of the kitchen design. The quartz counters on the island and perimeter are a color named “Fossil Gray”. The island includes an undermounted sink with dishwasher within reach. There are outlets on each end of the kitchen island.

Stained panels and trim have been applied to the back of the island and two newel posts have been includes as “legs” for the island. These legs and contrasting finish to the kitchen perimeter help to give the kitchen island a furniture look. A wide plank of trim spreads from leg-to-leg as an apron to help give the island a more solid look.

All of this rests atop a stunning engineered Hickory floor from our Hallmark Floors line. Varied widths of 4″,6″,and 8″ from Hallmark’s Monterey Collection in the “Gaucho” color. These Hickory floors are installed throughout the Great Room, down the hall, and as the stair landing. The lighting for this kitchen is a great example of scale and style. The Kichler “Larkin” is a 3-light pendant and the traditional lantern shape is updated with a modern finish and exposed bulbs without glass.

One pendant hangs in the Dinette. Instead of selecting a complimenting island light, the same light is used. This helps create a great rhythm to the finished design. The scale of two pendants above this island is perfect and these fixtures can be looked at or through to help showcase the overall space.

We are beyond thrilled to share our 2017 showroom updates with you here on the blog! Village Home Stores has a lot of great things planned as we move into 2017. This showroom update is a significant start! We have purchased a third storefront and added 1,200 sq. ft. of space for a brand new lighting showroom. We will show you are that complete lighting space and our remodel process later this week. Let’s begin today with a tour of our brand new front reception area:

As our business continues to grow, we have changed and adapted our customer experience so that every person that visits our store leaves feeling glad they came. Our entire showroom now is over 9,000 sq. ft. that’s a lot of product and space all in one location! You will now enter the center door off of State Street and be greeted and guided by Therese. That’s Therese in the photo above, look how happy she looks in her new desk area! She creates all of our beautiful full-color renderings for our Kitchen & Bath Design customers. She will now be the first smiling face you see whether you are shopping for a single lightbulb, a full appliances package, or an entire home of products. The back wall of this new reception area is easily one of our favorite new areas of our entire showroom. Layers of texture and a variety of materials make a big first impression.

Have you seen our new signage inside the store? It looks so amazing day and night! We gave the folks at ItsaSchmollworld our logo and they gave us this incredible metal sign! We installed it over a Dahltile Limestone named Martinique Arctic Gray. The logo is back-lit with our Diode LED lighting system.

That means we can leave this sign lit all day and all night and use very little energy for the bold statement it makes. See for yourself how amazing this back wall looks in the evening when you are passing the store. The pendant lighting flanking the logo is another  great element to the finished design.

These pendants are from our ELK Lighting line. The series is named Gramercy. We love the schoolhouse shape to the glass and the brushed finish pairs perfect with the metal logo sign on the same wall. The wood panels behind each pendant are a unique new product we have just launched, DuChateau wall coverings. These panels are from the Kaudra series in the Brown Ash finish. We are so excited to has access to this great new product! Consider these wall coverings for a fireplace wall or as an accent wall in a Master Bedroom. Below is a moodboard of the variety of finishes included in this new front desk:

Brushed Bronze handles from our Top Knobs line add a warm matte-finish gold look which is right on trend for our industry. Two finishes and styles of DuraSupreme Cabinetry have been included in this desk design. Gray Painted cabinets in the Middleton doorstyle and paint called Moonstone. The warm gray/bronze laminated cabinets are the Talia Horizontal style in a finish named Wired Bronze. Many times the countertops selected can easily become overpowered by everything else in a complete look. These Cambria Quartz tops in the Seagrove design wrap just about every available remaining surface and command your attention!

This installation technique is called a “Waterfall” edge. Cambria seems to spring up from the floor, wrap the cabinets and desk surfaces and cascade back down again seamlessly. The front face of the desk includes a recessed area of paneling that repeats the Wired Bronze finish from the back wall of cabinetry.

All of this sits atop a new floor from our Marazzi line. This is a wood-look porcelain tile that will be a durable and stylish choice to hold up to the high-traffic area of the showroom. This 6″ x 36″ tile is from the American Estates series in the Natural color. If you want the look of wood but a durable and easy to clean surface, ask one of our flooring experts at Village about a wood-look tile.
