Edgebrooke Homes- Kitchen With Blue Island in Bettendorf, Iowa

Blue cabinetry is having more than just a “moment” in the Kitchen and Bath industry! We have installed so many stunning spaces over the past fews years that have introduced a painted blue finish and now it is become such a staple option for Transitional, Scandinavian, and Modern Farmhouse styled spaces. Blue cabinetry is forecasted to remain an accent color for many years to come. Our Koch Classic Cabinetry line makes a neutral blue-gray paint called “Charcoal Blue” and it truly makes a great statement as the island finish in this Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen. Blue and white cabinet kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa home.

This home, built by Edgebrooke Homes, was a QCBR Fall Parade of Homes stop and it is such a wonderful example of how Village can partner with you and your builder to save you time AND money. Shopping our one-stop-shop experience and bundling your purchases is the way to go and it gets you a a more complete design concept! Complete, cohesive designs begin with a vision early on in the design phase. Village works hard to keep you on track with that vision (and budget).  This great room design concept blends bright painted whites, a Charcoal Blue accent, gray-toned wood floors, and warm rustic woods. Blue and white cabinet kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The main kitchen perimeter is a “White” painted cabinetry in the same “Bristol” doorstyle as the kitchen island. Staggered heights and depths of wall cabinetry can help to add interest to a kitchen design that has tall ceilings. This kitchen also includes two heights for casual dining. A large dinette area at dining height, and a single-level kitchen island extends to add more seating at the island. Blue and white kitchen with dining and kitchen island seating in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The pantry and refrigerator wall of the kitchen actually conceals a hidden feature. The pantry doors open to reveal access to the large walk-in pantry space that turns the corner behind the wall of cabinetry. This same look can be applied in a remodel situation with existing closets or unique spaces. Ask your designer at Village Home Stores how we can include one in your own design. Walk-through pantry front in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Village Home Stores doesn’t want to just know what kitchen spaces inspire you… we want to know what your own dream kitchen looks like. We know it can be difficult for our clients to have a clear vision of what that looks like early on in the design phase. That is why we are here to help. You showing us spaces and ideas that inspire you, helps us build a concept for your own space and tastes.  We have a number of great specialty cabinet options like this pantry front that can take your design to the next level! Press play below to see the pantry doors open up to reveal the hidden room behind them.

The tall pantry cabinet is balanced by the refrigerator surround on the opposite end of this wall. Also included on this wall is a microwave drawer unit. Microwave drawers are a great way to keep the microwave appliance off of the counter and reachable for any users. Another great location for a microwave drawer is in a kitchen island. This section of the featured kitchen creates a great landing space of countertop for loading and unloading the refrigerator and also a work surface for microwave use and food prep. Sharp microwave drawer in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Counter depth refrigerator models can really help you so much when the design demands it for traffic paths and space allowances. In this kitchen, a standard depth unit works perfectly “built-in” against the wall on one side and with a tall, deep panel on the other. A deep cabinet above completes the look. The 36″ wide Whirlpool model fits and offers so much great storage. It also stays looking great with a Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel finish that easily wipes clean. Whirlpool WRF555SDFZ French Door Refrigerator in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

The kitchen island includes the kitchen sink and a Whirlpool dishwasher. This dishwasher is quiet at just 47 decibels (normal conversation is at about 50 dba). A TotalCoverage Spray Arm cleans with twice the jets as usual and an In-Door Silverware Basket frees up rack space by easily fitting on the front of the lower rack or in the door to make room for more dishes. Charcoal Blue painted kitchen island and Whirlpool dishwasher in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The countertop surface in this gorgeous kitchen is the Swanbridge design by Cambria Quartz Surfaces.  The look of a polished, white marble in a durable maintenance-free surface. Swanbridge is available in the polished (shown) finish as well as a soft, matter finish.Cambria Swanbridge quartz tops in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The lighting for the great room has a dark, matte bronze metal finish. Clear glass on the Feiss “Baskin” pendants above the island keep the space feeling light and airy. The Sea Gull Ravenwood Manor Chandelier in the dinette area has 5 exposed vintage bulbs. This 5-light fixture adds style and impact to the space. A great look for this casual but upscale space. Kitchen lighting above island and casual dining areas in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

By not including a microwave hood in a kitchen you and your designer at Village Home Stores have many more decorative options for a hood in your kitchen. In this Bettendorf kitchen design we were able to include a decorative wood hood. We fit the hood cabinet with a 390 CFM Broan insert for the range and cooktop area below. Check out the great freestanding double-oven range on this wall. Whirlpool double oven range in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Two oven cavities so you can bake at two seperate temperatures. The gas cooktop includes a 5th center oval burner. This gas cooktop has EZ-2-Lift™ hinged grates to make clean up easy!  Press play below to see these hinged grates in action:

This model is packed with so many great features like Frozen Bake™. Skip preheating the oven for frozen faves like pizza, lasagna, chicken nuggets, fries or pies, thanks to Frozen Bake™ technology. It also bakes with true convection cooking. That helps you cook foods faster by using a third element plus a fan to distribute hot air evenly over, under and around your food. The kitchen is a part of a larger great room space and a gorgeous engineered Oak wood floor ties many of the main-level spaces together. This engineered Oak is from Hallmark Flooring’s Novella series and it is the Fitzgerald color.

That same flooring is installed in the foyer, great room, kitchen, pantry, dinette, powder room and the formal dining room shown above. We love the light fixture selected for the formal dining room. The “Fall Flora” chandelier by Quorum looks amazing!

Kerkhoff Homes- An Award-Winning Parade Home Kitchen

Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops. Kitchen design and materials by Village Home Stores for Kerkhoff Homes in the Quad Cities.

Congratulations to Kerkhoff Homes for winning one of the awards (2018 Best Home in the $639,000-$665,000 price range category) during the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Fall Parade of Homes! We were thrilled to have our design and products throughout TWO of the Kerkhoff homes this parade season so we wanted to feature one this week on the blog. The kitchen in this home is stunning. An open layout, a custom range hood, and so many great finish selections. Take a look! White perimeter and accent gray island kitchen design in Bettendorf, Iowa. Home staged by Elements Design. Kitchen design and materials by Village Home Stores for Kerkhoff Homes in the Quad Cities. | villagehomestores.com

Great Room kitchen layouts should always be open and inviting. By selecting the right surfaces and materials, you also can make a space feel spacious and airy like this kitchen. The kitchen layout in this Bettendorf home is an L-shape perimeter with a large single level island. The cabinetry is the Prairie door in a painted “Ivory” finish from our Koch Classic line.Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops. Kitchen design and materials by Village Home Stores for Kerkhoff Homes in the Quad Cities. | villagehomestores.com

The kitchen island has an overhang extending off the back for added counter-height seating. There is also a casual dining space adjacent to the kitchen. The star of this kitchen is most certainly the custom hood we created with this builder. A wood hood was built to match the cabinetry of the kitchen perimeter with a Broan blower insert housed within it. Faux metallic detail on a custom wood range hood. Design and materials by Village Home Stores for Kerkhoff Homes. | villagehomestores.com

But we didn’t just build a custom wood hood… we took it one step further. A local artist added a faux metallic finish to the lower lip and top rail of the hood giving the illusion of an old metal hood. Even seeing the paint detail up close you will be fooled into thinking it is the real deal!Metallic faux finish detail in a kitchen by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

Below the feature hood is a gas range ready to be put to any task! This front-control gas range has five burners on top and convection features in the oven. Flawless cooking results thanks to Even-Heat™ True Convection; the unique bow-tie design and convection fan in the back of the unit ensure the inside of the entire oven is heated to, and stays at, the perfect temperature. This range also features a Steam Rack that offers the ability to add additional moisture to the inside of the oven, enhancing cooking results.

The French Door refrigerator is the focal point of the other wall of the kitchen. 20 cubic foot of storage capacity and a counter-depth design make it functional in many ways. The ExtendFresh™ Temperature Management System and Produce Preserver help keep food fresh. LED lighting throughout the refrigerator makes food easy to find on every level.KitchenAid Stainless Steel appliances in a Bettendorf, Iowa home. | VillageHomeStores.com

“But there is no water and ice in the fridge” you say? Yes there is! The filtered water dispenser is hidden on the interior of the counterdepth model and an icemaker is in the lower freezer. The kitchen itself includes plenty of storage space within the kitchen cabinets, plus there is a walk-in pantry on the range wall. Cabinet storage and fresh food storage are the main tasks for this section of the kitchen L-shape. As well as a lengthy section of countertop surface for food prep, service, and loading and unloading the refrigerator. Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen with white painted cabinets, a gray stained island, KitchenAid appliances, and quartz tops. | villagehomestores.com

A Sharp microwave drawer is also found on this wall of the kitchen. Kitchen microwave drawers are past the “occasional” spotting and have entered into the “expected” category in our area. They are a great look AND functional solution to the microwave needs in busy kitchens. 

Any busy kitchen will need a high-performance dishwasher and this KitchenAid one is ready to be put to work! This one is quiet at just 46 d.b.a (normal conversation levels are around 50), and the ProWash cycle is ready for even the toughest loads. Shop our entire catalog of appliances here on our website. The dishwasher is located on the end of the kitchen island next to the kitchen sink. KitchenAid Stainless Steel dishwasher in a Bettendorf, Iowa home. | villagehomestores.com

The kitchen island is also from our Koch Classic line of cabinetry in the same Prairie door. A Hickory wood has been stained with a warm gray stain named “Stone”. A sinkbase, pull out trash basket, and stack of drawers complete the island cabinet configuration. 

Keeping with bright and light finishes, a glossy engineered quartz countertop was installed. Our Q-Quartz line in the color named “Calacatta Laza” is a classic and sophisticated choice. Bright whites blend with ivory and neutral beige veining. A glossy finish is reflective and beautiful. Once installed, quartz has little to no maintenance (yes you still have to wipe it clean). Quartz is also non-porous and foodsafe making it an ideal kitchen surface.

Above the kitchen island hang two glass pendant lights. A great way to give a space a more airy and light look is to use glass or mirror. These pendants from our Feiss Lighting line are named “Zola” and they anchor the island scale and shape but don’t weigh down the space with a dark finish. Instead, you can see through them to that great custom hood design! Shop our lighting catalogs here on our websiteGlass pendant lighting hangs above a kitchen island in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

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)
Bettendorf Iowa New Home by Aspen Homes with design and materials from Village Home Stores.

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.

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!

2018 Q.C.B.R. Home Show Recap

Well we have officially finished unpacking everything and almost have our showroom back together again after another fun and successful Q.C.B.R. Home Show at the Rock Island Q.C.C.A. Expo Center. From Thursday evening through late Sunday afternoon, we greeted hundreds of guests in our booth space.

In years past we have installed entire kitchen displays the week leading up to the big show. This year we chose to install a large, eye-catching kitchen island and allow plenty of space to meet and greet visitors to chat about their own projects. The island this year made a BIG impact! We took a few risks and your response was so great. Blue cabinetry, wood details, golden accents, and purple?! Painted blue cabinetry with Acacia wood detail and Cambria Annicca quartz in the 2018 QCBR Home Show booth by Village Home Stores. | Village Home Stores

At the very center of our booth was a giant island constructed of cabinetry and panels in our new Charcoal Blue painted finish. The island was accented with sections of Acacia hardwood. We have already installed many projects throughout the Quad Cities region in this new blue cabinet color and the look is great. We also wanted an opportunity to showcase the “X” style of glass door mullions that is available. Painted blue cabinetry with doors cut for glass but instead backed with Acacia wood planks. | Village Home Stores

Mirror and glass just didn’t stand out enough against the “X” detail so we thought a bit out of the box. The same Acacia wood from our back paneling was used as an “insert” attached to the inside of the doors. This contrast in color and pattern made for a bold but amazing look that could be seen from all the way down the Home Show aisle. An open bookshelf cabinet is found on the opposite side and more Acacia hardwood is installed in combination with the Charcoal Blue paneling and trim.

With an island that large, we need a great looking countertop. We wanted the impact to be striking but not completely over the top. We selected a new quartz design by Cambria® curious to see what your response would be. This marbled look includes details of gold and purple iridescent stone.
Cambria Annicca quartz in the 2018 QCBR Home Show booth by Village Home Stores. | Village Home Stores

Wait, what? Did we say purple?! YOU BET WE DID! This stunning new Anniccadesign from Cambria® Quartz is part of their Marble Collection™ and when viewed from afar, the striking veining of shimmering flecks is beautiful. Take a closer look and the top reveals flecks of gold and a regal purple. It was pretty fun to watch our guests say how much they loved the top and then notice the purple seconds later. Get ready to see more purple as Ultra Violet has been named Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018. Cambria Annicca quartz in the 2018 QCBR Home Show booth by Village Home Stores. | Village Home Stores

Another popular product in the booth was something we have never brought to showcase at the show, our custom window blinds and shades. This year we brought an example of our Transitions Shades for our visitors to try out and see. Press play below to see these unique blinds in action (and see Seth peek around the corner to say hello).

We have examples of this style of shade in our showroom in downtown Geneseo, IL. The look is truly unique. Of course we brought with us this year some examples of the many options for lighting available at Village Home Stores. It is already impossible to showcase all of the hundreds of thousands of fixtures in our showroom, so to select just a handful to bring for our booth is always challenging. We think our lighting team picked the perfect fixtures this year because our guests loved them!Lighting in the 2018 Quad Cities Home Show booth by Village Home Stores. | Village Home Stores

The largest and most noticeable was the geometric cluster fixture (shown center above) from our Hinkley line. This display of lighting was our more Modern grouping. It showcased the trend of gold and also mixed materials. On the opposite side of the booth we went with a more Farmhouse Rustic grouping of fixtures. The award for most reached at and touched light fixture certainly would go to this chained light (shown center below) by Sea Gull. Lighting in the 2018 QCBR Home Show booth by Village Home Stores. | Village Home Stores

This year there were just as many bath remodel customers we spoke to as kitchen customers. The last few years have been trending this direction for our remodel business. This year we brought a bath vanity display and our Kohler®  Choreographshower system to showcase. This collection of shower walls and adjustable accessory options is fantastic. Stylish options for an easy-to-clean shower look plus the ability to customize the space even after it is installed. Ask a member of our design team with any questions about this great system. Shower panel display in the 2018 Quad Cities Home Show booth by Village Home Stores. | Village Home Stores

Our booth was busy this year and we hope f you were at the show that you were able to get your questions answered. If not you can always reach out  It was so great to meet potential new clients and of course we love it when past clients stop by to say hello too! Your response and feedback for our TV Show has also been such an encouragement. We hope to get four new episodes of the show coming your way in 2018.

We were honored a few weeks ago by being named the Q.C.B.R. Business of the Year for 2017. We value the opinions our customers have for our staff and our store very highly. To also be recognized among peers and colleagues is truly and honor.

Edgebrooke Homes- Koch’s “White Drift” Paint Finish and a Viking Appliance Suite.

We had hoped that by the time we shared this “White Drift” painted kitchen that we would have a Winter Wonderland outside our windows to help make it even more charming. No snow yet in Bettendorf Iowa but it doesn’t stop the style in this kitchen from “piling” up! We were thrilled to provide design and materials for this QCBR Parade of Homes entry from Edgebrooke Homes. The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous.
White Drift painted kitchen with Viking Appliance package. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

A kitchen can still be bright and light without being solid white! Koch Cabinetry has a new painted finish available named “White Drift” that can be applied to many woods. No matter if that name makes you think of sand dunes or snow, it’s the perfect way to describe the layers of color and character it brings to a design.
White Drift painted kitchen with Viking Appliance package. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Shown here on a Rustic Beech wood and Easton door, the choice of wood species also includes rustic knots and character on the doors and drawers. Lighting trends in kitchen design are moving away from groups of three small pendants and instead replacing that concept with two larger scale fixtures. This provides a big impact of style and scale to a space. The two “Labette” lantern-shaped lights from our SeaGull line are actually considered foyer lights. Here above the kitchen island, the size and style looks perfect!
White Drift painted kitchen with island. Kitchen design by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

A large single-level island is located at the center of the design. Here you find the kitchen sink undermounted to quartz counters. A single drill faucet with pullout spray arm keeps the counter from needing multiple holes drilled into it. The only other thing atop the island is a garbage disposal button (shown on right of faucet). Cambria quartz in Berwyn design. Kitchen design by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

Cambria Quartz in the “Berwyn” design is the perfect pairing with the wood finish. Not every kitchen requires a high contrast of material selections. Here the subtle tone-on-tone approach keeps the space feeling open and bright. The refrigerator wall of the kitchen design is balanced in scale by a tall pantry cabinet on the left side.
White Drift painted kitchen with Viking Appliance package. Kitchen in a Bettendorf, IA with design and materials by Village Home Stores for Edgebrooke Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

But that’s not just a pantry cabinet, it’s a hidden walk-in pantry. Tall pantry fronts can be ordered to match your kitchen cabinets and can turn any available space into hidden storage potential. In new homes it can be easier to plan on having the pantry space available but don’t forget about remodel projects too! Consider current closets or desk areas that may make great pantry areas. Your designer at Village Home Stores can help.
White Drift painted kitchen with hidden pantry front. Kitchen design by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

We love any opportunity to include pantry fronts like this in designs. We do show an example of this concept in our Geneseo showroom so stop by to see it! Press play below to see this pantry front cabinet section in Betendorf, IA in action:

That same wall with the pantry and refrigerator also includes a stylish microwave drawer. This kitchen has been fit with an appliance package from our Viking Range line.  The microwave shown is a 24″ wide undercounter model that gives a sleek built-in look next to the 36″ wide counter-depth Viking refrigerator. One of the many reasons we love carrying the Viking line is that it is a professional-level appliances product that you can build an ENTIRE kitchen appliance package with including the refrigerator. This is a huge advantage instead of the mix-and-match approach many other high-end brands require.

On the other wall of the kitchen is the cooking center of the design. Two large pots and pans drawer bases flank a 36″ wide 6-burner gas range also from Viking Range. Above the range is a decorative wood hood fit with a Broan built-in PowerPack hood insert (see below for view in).

The 36″ gas range selected for this kitchen is full of exceptional features. Some of our favorites include six sealed burners above and a GourmetGlo™ infared broiler within. This unit is even available in many unique colors for a fun impact in your design! We are also so proud to mention that Viking is another one of our Appliance lines that is manufactured in the United States.

Don’t forget that New Construction customers are all eligible to our lighting bundle program. As you purchase from multiple departments of our store, you can earn FREE lighting for your home.
