New Home With Gray and Black Painted Kitchen and Farmhouse Inspiration in Every Room

This Spring we have just felt so overwhelmed with appreciation for our customers and our builder relationships. Your support of Village Home Stores has kept our hearts so darn full while our showroom has had to be more empty. There are still so many new homes going up throughout the Quad Cities region. It is such an honor to work with so many area builders to put our design and products into their work. Our new home customers find that an appointment and the short drive to our one-stop-shop saves them time and money. Much of the process can even be done online through our login system. Together we can build a team of experts from each department for new home clients to help to create fully realized finished spaces. A great example is this Kerkhoff Homes property that just finished up in Bettendorf Iowa. Check out this dream kitchen!

We wanted to take some time to show you around the many highlights from this project beginning with a tour of the open-concept great room kitchen. The element that is first to grab your attention in the kitchen is the tiled backsplash area on the range wall. The main backsplash tile throughout the kitchen and dry bar area is a 1″x4″ Tundra Gray by Epic Stone. It is accented with a shimmering wide stripe of metal mosaic that cascades from ceiling to cooktop. This Falling Stars Aluminum Mix series in the Platinum Moon color is from our Glazzio Tile line. It blends mixed metallic finishes in grays and silvers.

This tile looks so perfectly at home surrounded by the “Fog” painted Koch cabinetry and Stainless Steel appliance package. A pot filler faucet in matte black has also been installed on the accent tile. This adds function and style to the cooking zone. The star of the kitchen appliances in this new home is the 48″ wide KitchenAid commercial style range. For serious home chefs, curious future home chefs, or households who entertain large groups, this range is a dream! 4′ wide with two oven cavities, this is a dual fuel model range. That means that you get the accuracy and constancy of an electric bake or broil in the ovens and the immediate control of a gas cooktop. Shop dual fuel ranges here at villagehomestores.com

Atop that double oven is 4′ of exceptional cooktop surface. A combined 6 gas burners and an integrated griddle. A continuous grate system over the burners allow a user to move pans of all sizes from one location to another. It also makes a great wide surface for cooling items from the oven. This is illustrated below by “Lord Stanley” who is monitoring the status of some cookies cooling.

The cabinetry in this Bettendorf kitchen is from our Koch Classic line in the best-selling Savannah doorstyle. This flat-panel door is the perfect Transitional selection that can work for many tastes. It can be ordered in painted and stained finishes. Shown here with the painted light gray “Fog” finish on the perimeter and “Black” paint on the kitchen island. The Fog paint is a wonderful neutral finish option for spaces that have a lot of whites and want a subtle compliment.

Our most requested feature for new home kitchen designs is a hidden pantry (also modeled here by Lord Stanley who just wanted to make sure we weren’t after his treats). We are able to order a matching tall cabinet front with no bottom rail from our cabinet companies. This allows you to create an entrance that looks like a normal pantry, but opens to reveal a hidden walk-in space. Want to see more examples of hidden pantries? Check out this storage solutions board on our Pinterest page!

Fresh and frozen food storage is found on the other wall of the kitchen design. We surrounded a counter-depth French Door refrigerator with a deep upper cabinet and tall end panels. This gives a built in and clean finished look. Concerned about losing storage space with a counter depth model? You no longer have to be! This counter-depth KitchenAid model is the largest capacity counter-depth refrigerator in its class! It has a slide-away split shelf, self-close crispers, and a custom temperature pantry drawer.

Selecting lighting for an entire new home can be overwhelming to do on your own. Thank goodness we have a lighting expert on staff who is dedicated to working for all of our new home customers! Setting up an appointment with our lighting department allows us to sit down with you, your plan, and your budget. In that first appointment we can help determine your personal style and tastes and begin to curate an estimate for you through our online login program. Don’t forget that our new home customers can also qualify for our Lighting Bundle Program at Village.

In this great room we provided three medium-sized pendants for above the kitchen island, a dinette light, and ceiling fans. Working with a lighting expert allows you to create a lighting plan using multiple brands and styles that compliment each other. This is so much better for a finished result than just buying a whole series of the same lighting in varied sizes. We love the jar shape of the Uttermost “Lansing” island pendants and the complimenting finishes in a difference shape and style for the dinette area just beyond the kitchen.

Below the pendant lights and right at the center of all kitchen activity is the kitchen sink. A farmhouse style apron sink has become another staple feature for many styles of homes. Here we have created the perfect prep and cleanup space by including a pull out waste basket to the right of the sink, and a KitchenAid dishwasher to the left. Quiet at just 39 decibels (normal conversation is about 50), you can run this dishwasher any time of day or night without disrupting music or television use in the great room.

The countertop surfaces in this kitchen are a marble-look engineered quartz surface called “Calacatta Laza”. This color is a fantastic marble fake-out in a durable and foodsafe surface. We are learning now more that ever that it is important to help reduce the spread of germs and bacteria within your home. Quartz countertop surfaces are non-porous so they will not absorb stains, cleaners, or any other “ickies” that may be on these cute paws below. Quartz surfaces can be cleaned with any non-abrasive cleaners and many times our customers just use mild soap and water.

Let’s head to the bar to celebrate and toast this new home! The same quartz surface and “Fog” painted cabinetry was installed as an extension to the kitchen in a dry bar area. Here we included a finished cabinet interior and glass doors for the upper cabinets and a built-in space below for beverage coolers. The result is a large built in bar area that keeps a light, airy, and inviting feel for use.

The two under counter appliances built in are stylish and super functional. With a counter-depth refrigerator as the main kitchen fridge, these glass-front models allow for added beverage storage outside of needing to use the main fridge. On the left is a wine cellar unit with two temperature zones within. On the right is a glass-front undercounter refrigerator. Glass-front bar fridges are fantastic for households who entertain because you have a clear way-finding clue day and night for guests to serve themselves without feeling sneaky trying to find the drinks.

And while “Lord Stanley” is the guardian of the pantry in this house, it looks like “Cy” here is the bouncer for this bar! This entire new home is stunning and fit with many high end products. We wanted to take a moment to point out the flooring in these spaces. Would you believe this ISN’T real hardwood? In photos and even in person it will fool you! This is actually a floating luxury vinyl plank floor. We wanted to point out that many of our new home customers are selecting luxury vinyl planks and tiles and the look and performance is still high end!

The great room, kitchen, foyer, study, dining room, sunroom, and stairway landings are all installed in the Adventure II series “Rain Forest” vinyl plank from our Engineered Floors line. Vinyl planks come in such a wide variety of sizes, colors, and even textures. Village Home Stores has a lot of options for your new or existing home in this flooring category. You will also be delighted for the added piece of mind with the warranties on many of these vinyl planks. Looking for a flooring surface for your active household that is pet-friendly, durable, and even waterproof? Then reach out to us for a quote today. We also provided wall tile for this home in the showers, mentioned kitchen, and the two textured statement walls shown below.

The fireplace wall and powder room vanity wall each are fit with a ledger tile. This same “Siberian White Honed Ledger” is installed horizontally as a fireplace surround and then vertically in the powder room. A pair of a smaller version of the kitchen island pendants are hung in the powder room. The light cast onto this tile looks so amazing! Texture and dimension in a neutral and classic material. And speaking of texture, check out this stunning tray ceiling in the master bedroom!

There is something to love in every room of this new home. The laundry room in this Kerkhoff Homes new build is large and perfectly located in the plan. Near the active great room space but out of sight, it is easy to stay on task with laundry throughout the day. And with the connected features of this smart Maytag front load laundry pair, it is even easier to stay on task. You can use the app to monitor and control features when you’re away from home or just in another room. The connected laundry allows you to receive notifications and alerts when the load is done. And any Maytag customer can appreciate that you can even avoid some service calls by connecting your appliance to the app.

We’re Not Just Kitchen Remodeling! Five Other Rooms Get a Whole New Look!

We tend to showcase a lot of our kitchen work here on the blog but… y’all know we do more than that right? We have products for every room in your home and many times find ourselves extending work beyond a kitchen remodel for our clients. Village Home Stores is your Quad Cities area source for kitchen, bath, and more! Yes we can design a beautiful kitchen or bathroom for you but we can also create a dream laundry, craft room, home bar, media room, fitness center, man shed, she shed, mudroom… the list goes on and on. Our latest featured kitchen remodel was really a complete overhaul of the entire back end of this busy Coal Valley, IL home including five other rooms we worked in.

If you haven’t toured the kitchen in this home yet, take a peek here at that tour. We created a stunning custom kitchen that included a home bar and hutch area plus a large walk-in pantry borrowing existing space from the back door rooms of this home. There are now many new finished spaces just outside of the kitchen. Take a look at the first space we finished right inside the garage door entry. This custom-built mudroom bench/locker area was once just some closet space with bi-fold doors. Now it is #mudroomgoals!

This new dropzone stops kid (and grownup) clutter right at the entrance to the home. Plenty of hook storage for backpacks and jackets ad even more hidden away in the tall cabinet to the right. Deep drawers beneath the bench seat open up to reveal the perfect designated space for shoe storage. On the left, the tall cabinet opens to reveal a designated cleaning supply area making this mudroom the ideal hub for all activity with the luxury of so many places to tuck away items out of sight!

Back door dropzones, mudrooms, and benches have become high on top of every wishlist for any busy household. These organized zones of a home are not just for households with young children! Who else among us comes home from work every day with about three totebags (silently raises hand while typing this blog post). Anyone can appreciate a storage situation like this. Press play below to see this busy household get quickly organized once the kids arrive home from school.

Part of the original space across from that mudroom bench was a long laundry room area. This was the original access to the pool out back. Now that we have installed pool access in the new kitchen, we replaced the laundry door with a windowed wall. Real talk: would YOU want pool guests you are entertaining to walk through your laundry room to use your restroom? Didn’t think so. Now this space has been reworked to tackle cleaning, sorting, and pet needs. Separate wall hooks have been installed for suits to hang and there is a whole wall of incredible storage within this laundry room.

The layout of this home is so unique. There are so many angled rooms included in the design which made us think outside of the box when reworking the spaces. In fact, we have reworked this laundry room and even removed some of the sq. ft. yet it still is a better working layout than before. Take a peek at the rendered floorplan below to see the angled areas and how we “sliced” off part of this room to become the pantry space accessed on the kitchen side.

Within the work crews we had in this home, the most talked about specialty cabinet in the whole project wasn’t in the kitchen! These three pullout laundry basket cabinets got a reaction out of everyone who saw them. Who wouldn’t love the option to sort and stash laundry within reach but out of sight? Ask you Village cabinet designer about including one of these in your laundry room or bathroom design.

The cabinetry in this space was an extension of the same style and color of the accents in the kitchen we installed. However, the hardware in the laundry room was the only area we switched from the brushed gold antique brass look to a brushed nickel finish in the same size and style. We also changed counter surfaces for this room. It may look like we installed granite here… but this is a Formica top folks!

The Formica 180FX series offers our clients an incredible large-format printed design on an affordable surface we have been familiar with for years. You get the look of luxury at a fraction of the cost. This pattern is called “Cafe Azul” and you can see large samples of it and many more options in our Geneseo, IL showroom. Another very special family member named “George” got his own new feature in this laundry room rework too. An Invisible Fence Brand dog door was installed below the new window accessing the backyard. His collar unlocks the door when he approaches so it can open and close only for him. Press play below to see it in action.

As we mentioned before, yes we remodel bathrooms just as efficiently as kitchens! It’s just a different process and checklist. This back hallway powder room got a whole new look and a slightly different layout. Did you know that Village Home Stores can also work on your interior doors and trim during your remodel? We carefully partnered with this client to keep a consistent stain color from the back door through many rooms into the new great room. A pocket door can be a wonderful selection for small spaces. In this angled space, eliminating a door swing helps to keep the high-traffic area open.

The powder room received different cabinetry from the rest of the rooms. Here we installed a Bertch Bath vanity and tall linen cabinet. Each were ordered with tapered legs for a more furniture look. The Northrope Alder style in a “Mocha” stain is paired with a 2 1/2″ thick Venecia cultured marble top. Bertch Bath is a nationally distributed vanity company and is manufactured not to far from us in Waterloo Iowa! Village is always excited to partner with brands local to us to eliminate high fuel/freight charges to you and to make availability and lead-times more efficient for you.

But of course your eye was drawn to this painted floor tile right? The most eye-catching feature in this powder room is this StonePeak Palazzo Florentina tile. Power rooms are an excellent space for this farmhouse/painted tile trend because they are a small space that you want a big style impact in. This is a huge trend on Instagram and Pinterest with no signs of slowing down in the next few years. As an added bonus, this tile gets you the look with fewer grout lines. These are not individual 6″ grid tiles as they appear with the pattern, instead these are 12″ x 24″ large-format tiles. Ask a tile expert at Village about all of our options in panted tiles!

Built ins, media rooms, and home entertainment centers were a huge cabinet category beginning in the late 80’s. As TV’s have evolved in size, shape and thickness, many homes in the Quad Cities area are ready for a new solution for their home entertainment areas. This area was reworked and a custom TV cabinet was ordered to match the Knotty Alder cabinetry of the kitchen that is right within sight of the great room.

Just like our availability to handle the doorways and trim in your home, we also can rework your stair rail systems! We removed the original oak spindles and replaced everything with this new saddle-stained wood and wrought iron combination. New flooring was also installed in the great room, front entry, and dining room.

A balanced blend of medium-to-dark Hickory woodgrains pull out and compliment all of the new cabinetry and the furniture in these spaces. This is a 3/4″ solid Hickory floor from our Paramount Barnwood series in the “Rustic Beam” color. With so many woods and finishes surrounding these floors, selecting one with many colors included is a fantastic choice to help bring everything together.

At the center of this large great room we installed a carpet inlay. This large carpeted area helps to reduce sound and adds comfort (as modeled below by George). This is the Symphony carpet series in the “Swing” color. Our DreamWeaver carpet is a solution-dyed carpeting and comes in so many styles and colors. Solution-dyed carpet fibers mean that the color is permanent! It can’t fade and resists coloring from soiling! More great news for George is that he can’t end up “in the doghouse” because this carpet is available with lifetime pet urine resistance! It also comes with a number of 25 year guarantees like a 25 year guarantee of abrasive wear, texture retention, fade resistance, soil resistance and more!

While you are lounging in this newly remodeled great room don’t forget to look up! These cathedral ceilings had original wood panels and a center beam as a feature. We had our carpentry team revisit the wood ceiling to secure loose panels and we wrapped the beam with found barnwood. The barnwood was custom stained to compliment the new cabinetry in the home. Iron brackets cover the seams of the barnwood and the lighting and fan were updated as well.

Speaking of lighting updates, the dining room got a new look just by changing some of the surfaces and adding new lights. The “Pembroke” series by ELK Lighting is a stunning transitional style that looks right at home in many rooms. A six-light chandelier and two wall sconces were installed in the “Antique Brass” finish. We also extended the Hickory Rustic Beam hardwood into this dining room connecting the spaces all as one concept.

Atkinson, IL- Four Bath Looks in One New Home

The best thing about showcasing a new home to you is that we have the opportunity to show you so many examples of what our customers are selecting for their spaces all from the same project. In this Atkinson, IL home built by Evergreen Custom Homes we are able to show you four beautiful bathroom spaces each with their own look and concept.

Master Bath:
Master Bathroom ideas. | VillageHomeStores.com

Cherry cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been installed in the same doorstyle and finish as the kitchen we featured in our last postThis flat-panel style of door is so versatile. The Master Bath design is a warm zen look using earthtones and a variety of textures. The main wall of cabinets in the Master has been arranged in a variety of depths and heights to give a unique and customized look.
Master bathroom ideas. | VillageHomeStores.com

There are two sink vanity areas divided by a window and bench in the center of the wall. Against each corner rests the tallest base cabinet. A wall cabinet above is installed all the way down to the countertop surface. The sink bases have been ordered at a shorter height so that once the vessel sink is in place, the height is just right for a user to operate and utilize the vanity.
Storage bench in bathroom. | VilageHomeStores.com

A large window at the center of the wall is installed at just the right height to leave enough space below for a bench with storage. The same Cambria “Hampshire” quartz has been installed here as the top to the bench. Quartz is a fantastic choice for bathroom counters because you get the look of a natural stone but never have to worry about maintenance. Quartz is a man-made and non-porous material so no products you will be using in the bathroom can penetrate or damage the material at all.

On the opposite wall is the mirror image of the vanity area we shared earlier. This image below shows you the variety of depths used in the design as well. Every time the height of a cabinet changes, the depth does as well. This adds interest and also allows for enough space for the Cambria counters to have an overhang on the front of the cabinets.
Bathroom ideas, | VillageHomeStores.com

The custom tiled shower in this Master Bath is one of our favorite features of the new home. Dual rain shower heads and a lot of space make it enviable to anyone who sees it. Custom showers allow you to truly make the most of the available space. You are able to locate the entrance and fixtures wherever you would like them. The custom glass door is not the only chance for natural light to pass into the shower. A half-wall has been placed right by the entrance and a panel of glass is fixed to the wall granting a more open feeling to the user and more access to the overall light in the room.
Custom tiled drain. | VillageHomeStores.comTile shelf in shower recessed. | VillageHomeStores.comOf course your could just install the same series of tile throughout in a custom tiled shower…. but what’s so custom about that? That is why these clients worked closely with their design team at Village Home Stores to select a variety of tiles to create a great finished look that helps to tie the entire Master Bath space together. Speaking of custom, even the shower drain has been customized. This square unit can be tiled to match your design perfectly. The 2″ x 2″ “Emperador Dark” marble tile used for this shower floor is the perfect compliment to the Cambria “Hampshire” quartz counters installed on the vanity tops and bench seat. A sill piece of Cambria is used at the entrance to the shower and as a ledge on the half-wall. The mosaic tile was even used to add a design detail as a transition from the 12″ x 24″ StonePeak “Limestone Honey” floor tiles into the walk-in closet and bedroom of the Master Suite. mosaic tile as transition. | VillageHomeStores.com

Powder Room:

Located on the first floor of this home is the Powder Room. Powder Rooms are the perfect spaces to showcase your personal style and really try something different. This will be the Bath used by your guests so make a memorable first impression with your selections for the space. These clients worked with their designers at Village Home Stores and selected a statement bath vanity and paired it with a unique vessel bowl.
Bertch Bath Interlude bath vanity. | VillageHomeStores.com

Vessel sink vanity. | VillageHomeStores.comThe “Graphite Grey” paint has been applied to Bertch Bath’s Interlude Series cabinetry. This 30″ vanity has a Transitional style and furniture look with square legs attached to the vanity. A bottom-drawer configuration allows plumbing access behind the doors above and added storage below for toilet paper, towels, or any other items needed in the Powder Room. Vessel bowls continue to be a great way to add style to a bathroom space. The Master Bath featured above also included vessel sinks but in a brighter and smoother material. The Powder Room vessel has a dark and dramatic look that is complimented by the grey cultured marble slab top  with dark black veining movement.

Lower Level Bath:

The Lower Level of the home includes a large bathroom with vanity, linen cabinet, and cultured marble top. “Cultured Marble” is a general term for bathroom vanity tops that are formed by pouring a material into a mold to create a surface. A current trend in vanity tops like this is to give the look of an under-mounted bowl to a granite or quartz top. At first glance this top looks a lot like a quartz one… but take a step closer and see that it is a cultured marble vanity top similar to those we have been installing for decades and decades. bathroom ideas | VillageHomeStores.com

Many times the bowl is integrated into this surface and by simply adding a white or off-white color for the bowl, the illusion of an under-mount sink is achieved. The Onyx Collection is one of our top-selling marble top products. They also can make custom shower bases and walls in addition to many other bathroom products. Onyx Collection bathroom vanity top. | VillageHomeStores.com

With many colors and styles to select from plus the option to customize your vanity or shower project, this Midwest-based company is a great option for your bathroom. Current trends within these cultured marble vendors is to have more flecked patterns similar to a quartz look. The top shown in this Lower Level Bath is the “Genesis” color in a gloss finish. These cultured tops can be ordered in a standard gloss finish or with a matte finish.

Upstairs Bath:

This Upstairs Bath is home to a vanity that matches the Master Bath shown above. There is another custom tiled shower in this bath that we wanted to showcase in this blog post. This Upstairs Bath shower is the same size and configuration of a standard tub/shower commonly found in a bathroom this size. In this space is a great new opportunity to create a custom area with a lot of textures and style. Honed Travertine tile fills up most of this shower. A shower head and handheld unit are located above the controls at the entrance to the shower. shower

shower_ledgeThe smooth texture of the Travertine tiles is a great contrast to the pebbled floor of the shower. Flat pebble tiles by Pietra Art add a fun texture in appearance and experience. Bare feet get a massage every time you use the shower. The same pebble tile is used as an accent stripe vertically on the back wall. A bench seat has also been installed and tiled into the corner of shower.
