Custom Amish-Built Rustic Alder Kitchen With Painted Island and Hutch

This Coal Valley Illinois kitchen just got a whole new look and layout! We made functional changes (like that new view and access to the pool shown below) and updated the look and style of the entire main level of this home. Custom Rustic Alder cabinetry from our Four Acre Amish cabinetry line is stained in a “Saddle” finish and accented kitchen island and hutch are finished with a “Light Pewter” paint. Accents of brushed gold metals, an incredible KitchenAid appliance package, and gorgeous Cambria countertops complete the look.

We moved the walk-out access to the backyard down closer to the pool view, and replaced the original window with a new wet bar. Two original peninsulas were replaced with a new custom hutch section. The new look is open, bright, and very stylish! Work was needed in this kitchen, the adjacent dining and living rooms, and entire back area of the home. That is a lot to tackle when you are also living in the home. These amazing customers called us and the complete start-to-finish Project Management team at Village Home Stores got to work for them.

There is such a transformation to the entire main level of this home that there is no way we could walk you through everything here on the blog… so instead we taped a full 1/2 hr. episode of our weekly TV show about this remodel story! Stay tuned for it to air very soon at our new time Sunday mornings at 10am on WQAD News Channel 8 ABC. In the meantime, check out this short video we made documenting some of the process. Press play below to see this kitchen and back door area transform!

Now that you have seen what it took to get to this stunning space, let’s take a closer look around at the details, materials, and design that give us this amazing end result. We replaced the U-shaped island obstacle with a long, rectangle island design with overhang on the back for counter-height stools. The refrigerator moved to a new location and the long, range wall became the featured focal point in the kitchen section of this design.

The large scale of the KitchenAid commercial 48″ wide dual fuel range is repeated with a custom wood hood above it. The cabinetry surrounding the range is symmetrical with staggered depths and heights in the upper cabinets. What a dream space to get to work preparing a meal! Concealed within that large mantle hood cabinet is a Broan blower insert so that there is proper ventilation when the cooktop or griddle is in use.

One of the benefits to purchasing from our custom Amish-built cabinetry lines is the ability to build sections of cabinets as one unit. Instead of this hood arriving at the jobsite as many cabinets and a lot of trim pieces, it arrives already assembled and finished just as you see it here. Our carpenters just had to install it and trim off the top with crown molding. The end result for you is a custom, seamless look and feel.

This range will certainly be the envy of any serious home chef! A dual fuel KitchenAid range with combined oven capacity of 6.3 cu.ft. and a 6-burner gas cooktop and chrome electric griddle on top. Dual fuel means you get the benefits of electric baking in the oven cavities and the immediate control of a gas cooktop above.

Who wouldn’t love to have a griddle integrated into a cooking zone like this?This even-heat chrome griddle offers a great cooking performance for this household and has an easy-to-clean surface. That means pancakes on a Sunday morning doesn’t mean cleaning up after pancakes all Sunday afternoon. There is no seasoning required for the griddle, and the chrome allows you to never have any flavor transfers from meal to meal. If you were able to contain your envy about the range, cover your eyes and ears when we point out the pot-filler faucet right above the cooktop.

Many magazine-cover kitchens include this wall faucet feature. For those who truly use their kitchens, this decorative feature is also highly functional! Imagine filling a pasta pot with water right at the cooktop. Or adding water to used pots and pans to soak for a bit before washing. We also designed this cooking zone to be functional during the cooking process with amazing storage surrounding it. Large pots and pans drawers are found on this wall as well as two pullout cabinets surrounding the range.

A 12″ pullout spice rack on the left side of the range and a 12″ pullout utensil storage cabinet on the right. We have installed many of these utensil cabinets this year and they are such a great specialty cabinet! Instead of mining through a wide or deep drawer of utensils, see everything in these organized bins and grab what you need. We also love that the lower shelf in this cabinet can be used for large containers and bottles.

Of course in any busy kitchen the island becomes the place to gather. With a new flow to this kitchen layout, the new island offers a space to casually eat, clean up, and even prepare foods. The island has a furniture style look with an accented “Light Pewter” painted finish and legs at each corner.

The backside of the island appears to be a custom wainscot panel… but there is storage hidden under that overhang! Each cabinet opens to reveal shelf storage for small appliances, serving trays, and seasonal items. We have found that some customers prefer storage hidden beneath an area like this, instead of an extra shelf on top of the wall cabinets that require a stepstool or ladder to reach.

The kitchen island countertop surface is the best place to showcase the Cambria Quartz that was selected for this new kitchen. The Brittanicca Warm design gives a warm white background and dove grays vein through it for a marble look. The look of marble with the worry-free piece of mind that this surface can hold up to these kids and adults using the kitchen.

From YouTube-curious slime-making kids, to red-wine spilling guests, it’s no problem! We also installed outlets on each end of the kitchen island because kitchen islands are also multi-tasking spaces like home offices, homework stations, as well as food prep areas. In this kitchen, the island is also home to the microwave drawer, sink, and dishwasher.

Our designer at Village Home Stores included a lower drawer sink base cabinet. This gives plenty of space in the cabinet for plumbing and also a shallow drawer for cleaning supplies below. The undermounted sink in this kitchen is an e-granite composite material with a low center divider. Why a low divider? When was the last time you actually filled up your entire sink with water?

This alternative low-divider sink layout allows those who don’t soak dishes a wider space for washing larger items and pans with handles. Even with all of these new cabinets, you can never have enough pantry space when you have lots of kids and entertain large groups. We moved the refrigerator from its original location and added a pantry area to the main range wall of the kitchen design.

But that’s not just a 24″ deep pantry cabinet… its a pantry front that opens up to access a walk-in hidden pantry. We framed in an entire new pantry area for this household borrowing space from the laundry room right behind the kitchen. We cut out an opening so it could be accessed from the kitchen and voila! As these kids call it, a “secret room” pantry!

Speaking of the kids, a household with active kids… means piles and clutter right? Not on our watch! We partnered with this couple to design drop zones and storage solutions that these kids can use and grow along with. We will show you the amazing mudroom bench area just around the corner in a future blog feature. In the meantime, check out this kitchen drop zone!

Base cabinet storage designated for school papers and all those water bottles and snack food containers! There is even a way to keep school papers sorted and out of sight. Did you notice the wall here? What’s one way to avoid papers piling up on a counter? Just give the option of a way to pop them up on the wall! We installed a magnetic wall surface here that can help display artwork, calendars, notes, reminders, and more!

With a pool just outside of the new kitchen, and a great open concept layout like this of course you are going to find yourself entertaining from time to time. With three kids, even dinner at home as a family is a large crowd. There is a casual kitchen dining table within the new kitchen and a stylish wet bar area right next to it. This bar area allows for a great location for serving drinks or snacks away from the kitchen itself.

A section of glass-door cabinetry offers display for bar ware and glasses and a stacked stone wall surface compliments the stone of the fireplace just around the corner. This bar also includes a customer favorite (and all these kids admitted their favorite) built-in icemaker from KitchenAid.

Uniformly shaped ice cubes ideal for everyday applications. Clear Ice technology allows for a more attractive drink presentation and a slower melt rate! So that means less watered-down drinks for you! This panel-ready model and nearby paneled drawer appliances give the clean look of a row of cabinets, with great appliance features hidden in plain sight.

Those two drawers on the end are actually an appliance as well! The top is a refrigerator drawer full of snack items and kids beverages. The bottom drawer is a freezer full of popsicles and frosty mugs! Just steps from the pool, this bar area is a favorite for all ages!

A single well bar sink is also located in this bar area. The sink is the same material and color as the kitchen island sink and another Delta faucet is installed in a brushed brass/gold finish. That same gold accent is found in the home decor, lighting, and cabinet hardware of this design.

That same champagne brushed brass accent is repeated in the cabinet hardware. “Merrick” handles from our Hardware Resources line look great against the painted finishes and the woodgrain of the Rustic Alder cabinets.

The same Merrick handle was used throughout the home remodel. This soft brushed gold finish looks great against woodgrain or painted white.

The area that used to be two awkward peninsulas, is now a gorgeous hutch in a painted accent finish. Glass-front cabinets with X-mullions are lighted from within as well as an open shelf section in the center. These shelves will be so much fun to decorate throughout the year! Each glass-door cabinet stretches down to the countertop surface and a drawer allows another place to stash items away and out of sight.

Speaking of away and out of sight, how about this peninsula section packed with the kids crafting, coloring, and homework supplies! There is also an outlet (see below) with USB charging hubs right here for phone, tablet, and laptop access.

This custom hutch will also be available when entertaining as another area to gather or even serve food and beverages from. Our Diode LED tape lighting helps this kitchen design look great day and night. This low-voltage system is a customer favorite. Imagine how warm and inviting this hutch must look glowing at night!

Product Profile: An All Star Lineup!

In honor of the MLB All-Star Game this week, we thought we would share our own All-Star Accessories lineup! We are aware that investing in brand new cabinetry as a part of your project can be overwhelming and come with many style and construction decisions to be made. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make the most of the storage that these cabinets can offer. After all… isn’t that the whole reason they have been called up to bat? So why upgrade to specialty cabinets? Using your space effectively is our goal. Helping you invest in smart storage solutions right away is a part of our responsibility as kitchen experts.  Get it right the first time, not after trying over and over to retro-fit a “universal” item into your expertly designed space. Let’s begin with our “Ace” All-Star: shelving.

Slide-Out Shelves: shelf-pullout2

Consider what your storage solutions may be once you begin to “move into” your new kitchen without slide-out shelves? There is no better way to use the entire interior space better than with slide-outs. Each cabinet line varies, but typically a standard base cabinets comes with just a single, half-depth flat shelf. Shopping for ways to find inserts, bins and shelves to organize your items can end up costing you added money and a lot of time. Instead, have your designer from Village Home Stores deliver your new cabinets with adjustable slide-out shelves (or even deep slide-out bins). Al moved in and still see space that could be used? No problem! We can even short-order added shelves that will easily fit on the existing brackets if you find you could use more of them.

Corner Cabinets:Base lazy susan cabinet. | VillageHomeStores.com

Corner cabinets are such unusually-shaped items that it is always assumed some sort of insert should be included. “Lazy Susan” cabinets can be in the bases and wall cabinets of your design. We offer many different versions of Lazy Susan constructions and shapes. Typically a base Lazy Susan cabinet is an L-shaped unit that measures 36″ from each corner. There are also smaller 33″ models available or even asymmetrical corner cabinets (i.e. 33″ on one end, and 36″ on the other). What if you don’t have the minimum 33″ in a corner? A Blind Corner Cabinet may be the best solution for you. Did you know there are special inserts to help you access even that awkward space?
blind-corner

The Blind Corner Cabinet above has been fit with two crescent-moon shaped shelves that swivel out, then even pull forward for a way to reach the very back corner of this “blind” space. This cabinet can be perfect for remodel designs that may be trying to add a dishwasher into the new design or add a larger sinkbase cabinet. No matter what space you end up with in your corner, we can make the most of it.  Sometimes the tiniest things start to collect and take over a cabinet space. Spices and cooking oils are definitely guilty of that!

Spice Storage:
spicerack

Including an area for storing spices and cooking oils may seem like a luxury wish-list item… but think of how much space these small containers can take up if you DON’T plan ahead. By designating just a narrow pull-out cabinet in your bases or walls, you can free up a lot of space elsewhere for other items. Spice storage can be added in a pullout, a drawer or a shelf attached to a wall cabinet interior.spicedrawer

If a pull-out spice rack isn’t something you can work into your cabinet design, do you have an extra drawer? We love this tiered spice rack option that can be added to a drawer. You can see all of the labels clearly without removing or bending down to read them. It is alwasy best to keep spice storage near the cooking zone of a kitchen design if you are able to. That way you have access to what you need while cooking without stepping away from the activity.

Knife Blocks:
knifeblock2

Think of all of the items you end up having on your countertop that could possibly find a home in your cabinet design? A designated knife storage area can help de-clutter your counters and keep from messing up utensil drawers. Clearly this base-cabinet access to your sharp knives doesn’t fit every lifestyle (we never recommend it for families with young children), but for some kitchens it is perfect! Many times kitchens include a knife block and still require a second drawer for all of the “other” knives. Why not just designate one zone for all of them?
knifeblock

This pull-out knifeblock from DuraSupreme is a brilliant use of just a 3″ wide space. It even includes a slot for your knife sharpener and a shallow shelf above to lay any smaller knives flat. The list of pull-out storage solutions goes on and on. Your Designer at Village Home Stores will work closely with you to help decide if there is one available that may work great for your own lifestyle. What about cleaning supplies?

Clean Up Zone:
pantry

Batting “clean up”…. well that’s YOU every day! Keeping cleaning supplies handy can help keep your kitchen looking amazing. If the basics are all within reach, you are more likely to use them. It alwasy seems odd to store some of these cleaning agents and items near your food. Separating them is always recommended. Inserts underneath the kitchen sink can be added, or even better a tall utility cabinet can house supplies and tools like brooms and mops. Designating a zone for clean-up supplies is an All-Star move and access to the garbage is a part of that!

Pull-Out Waste Baskets:
waste-basket-cabinet

Speaking of cleaning up, the wastebasket is always a busy place in a busy kitchen. Pull-out waste baskets have become so common because they check all of the right boxes when redesigning your kitchen: You can include the wastebeasket right in the busy areas of the kitchen instead of hidden in a corner by the door and even add a second bin for recycling. Or take it one step further and add another pull-out for pet food. We can even get a sealed container option for this. dog_food_storage

Apologies in advance but we have one more baseball pun to make. There is no other way to describe this last item on our list other than the “MVP”.

LED Undercabinet Lighting:
undercabinet-lighting

We know, we know, technically this can’t count because it isn’t a cabinet item but can we please let it be the mascot? We have to at least give it a proper mention because this Diode LED lighting system is sincerely the best addition to any kitchen design. There is no better way to show off your space while giving yourself a low-voltage task lighting system to use the new space. Sometimes seeing these cabinets in use is the best way to visualize them in your own design.

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.
White painted kitchen with gray stained island by Koch Cabinetry. Kitchen design by Village Home Stores for Tim Dolan Development. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
KitchenAid Appliances by Village Home Stores for Tim Dolan Development. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
White painted kitchen with gray stained island by Koch Cabinetry. Kitchen design by Village Home Stores for Tim Dolan Development. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.
