White Kitchen With Inset Doors and Shiplap Ceiling in Milan, IL

White painted cabinetry is a consistently classic look for a kitchen. For certain projects however, one added detail can take that look to a new level. That detail is choosing an inset cabinetry construction. The term inset means that the cabinet doors and drawer fronts are recessed back into the cabinet faceframes when closed. This gives a very customized furniture-style look to the cabinetry. This option is available from custom and semi-custom lines of cabinet product at Village Home Stores. This Milan, IL kitchen was given the full remodel treatment and for the vision of this new kitchen in the home, inset door cabinetry by Dura Supreme was the perfect choice.

The original kitchen was walled-off and sectioned into a small sink area and another cooking area The refrigerator was on its own across the way. Our team removed a wall that divided the dining area from the kitchen to open up the room and create a more open concept into the dining and front room of the home. Two windows were replaced with one large window now offering panoramic views to anyone at the kitchen farm sink in its new location. When the flooring was removed, this great pine floor was revealed beneath it. We think keeping the original wood floors was a fantastic choice with this bright, white new setting.

Even though this kitchen may have farmhouse feel, the appliances needed to have modern features while looking at home in the new space. We included a tall pantry cabinet to the left of the refrigerator for a surrounded and customized refrigeration look. A KitchenAid counter depth refrigerator keeps that built-in look locked in tight. Counter depth refrigeration is a modern feature that can really be a miracle worker when kitchen designing in small spaces. Another built-in appliance that is worth noting is the microwave.

The over-the-counter microwave from Sharp allows you to have the off-the-counter convenience of a microwave hood without installing it as your hood. This microwave option gave the client an opportunity to take a more decorative approach to a range hood across the room. We have installed examples of all microwave location options at our showroom in Geneseo, IL. You can shop all of our appliances online, anytime at villagehomestores.com or by stopping in our showroom at 105 S State Geneseo, IL.

We mentioned the floors… but did you see those ceilings? Shiplap style boards were installed and painted to give a completed look from floor to ceiling. Walking into this completed kitchen remodel the wow factor truly is in every single surface! From the storied original pine floors to the statement Shiplap ceiling. A farmhouse apron-front sink and new stainless dishwasher are located on the bright new window wall.

Keeping the kitchen design bright and airy on the sink wall, three floating shelves are located above the dishwasher (see image below). We can order shelving like this for any space. We are seeing a long-term trend for kitchens, bathrooms, home bars, and built-in fireplace shelving to have a more open look like this. We see the potential for styling these open shelf spaces year round but love this everyday simple look of glassware in a pop of color.

A 30″ slide in gas range by KitchenAid is the superstar appliance in this kitchen. The help of convection cooking produces flawless results for you. The convection fan ensures the inside of the entire oven is heated to (and stays at) the perfect consistent temperature. Plus the oven cavity cleans in less than an hour without odors at a low heat using water to release baked-on spills!

A steam rack on the interior offers the ability to provide additional moisture to the inside of the oven, enhancing cooking results. Speaking of results, there is even a wireless probe that lets cooks walk away from the oven without walking away from control. The probe can easily be set to specific temperatures, and alerts you when the desired temperature has been reached. There is also a baking drawer beneath the oven. The separate compartment allows you to keep warm, slow cook or bake at a different temperature and keep dishes warm. That’s like having a second oven!

Beautiful Arabescato Marble countertops were installed throughout this kitchen. Glazzio’sCrystile “Ice Mist” glossy glass subway tiles in a 3″ x 6″ size introduces a seaglass color and adds a coastal layer to the kitchen finishes. Clean and bright wall switches and outlets from our Legrand Radiant series look amazing. Many times our tile customers are curious what to do at the “end” of a run of wall tile. We use a channeled product called a Schluter Strip (shown below on right) to give a cleaner, completed look.

Dura Supreme cabinetry in the Homestead non-beaded doorstyle painted white is paired with bright surface selections to give this home the spacious and stylish kitchen it deserves. The symmetry of the new range wall is perfection.

We installed our energy efficient Diode LED lighting as undercabinet and in-cabinet lighting for this project. The clerestory style of a glass-door top section is styled and illuminated perfectly. This lighting system is low-voltage so you can leave it on anytime with minimal power use. A stainless hood would be a bit modern for this kitchen. So the design includes paneled a wood hood cabinet with blower insert in the space.

A mantle and decorative corbels create a shallow ledge area that can be left clean (as shown) or be home to a wreath, accessories, or leaning artwork if you see fit. There is such a gallery effect when you have a bright white kitchen like this. You can style it differently year round and let your accessories truly pop against the white paint.

Any remodel or new build project comes with hundreds of decisions to be made. Our store will build you a team of experts from each department that you are shopping so we can walk you through your choices and help you decide what is the best choice for your project and your budget. When choosing inset cabinetry you have the option of a concealed or exposed hinge for your doors. This kitchen showcases an exposed barrel hinge in a brushed nickel finish to compliment the kitchen.

The nickel finish offers a sheen without a very dark contrast. It also compliments the Stainless Steel appliances in the completed kitchen. A great door and drawer hardware choice for inset cabinetry was also made in this design. The Highland Ridge Collection has a latching mechanism to keep doors closed and aligned. This style of hardware works well in modern and farmhouse styles and can be ordered in a variety of finishes. We paired this door hardware with classic cup pulls on the drawers.

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.

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.

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)

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?

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:

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!

Product Profile- Self-Stick Wallplanks

We are thrilled to introduce this new product to our customers! While we have built the reputation for being your main source for complete remodels, we also provide quality products and expert design to empower our customers to do the work themselves. At Village Home Stores we value a customer who wants to invest their own time into a project that they will enjoy for years to come. It is not breaking news that shiplap, barnwood, and reclaimed woods of all styles and finishes have become very popular in kitchen and bath design. That is why we are very excited to launch this new self-stick wall plank product that is easy to install for an incredible impact! It truly is a DIY project that is NOT intimidating to take on.

wallplank-DIY

What do we mean by a DIY project that is not intimidating to take on? The day our new display arrived for the showroom our owner Jim decided to just install it right away in between appointments. He had it finished well before lunch! Take a look at this video of some of that installation (we admit that did speed it up just a bit for your own sake).

This product is meant to be installed by the homeowner. So much so that you can install it using just a measuring tape, pencil, and utility knife. Much like many of our other products at Village Home Stores, these wall planks are made in the U.S.A. The 1/4″ thick panels are sustainably sourced and processed with real North American hardwood. keypoints

The boards are stained using a patent pending process of infusing stain pigments into the veneering process. The result is the illusion of exotic hardwoods and rustic and reclaimed characteristics on a smooth, easy to clean surface.  A UV cured low-gloss finish is applied on the top of the planks and is wiped clean with water and a damp cloth. Let us walk you through the process step by step:

Plan & Measure Space:

Before installing it is recommended that you allow the wood planks to acclimate to the climate on the interior of your home. This helps to prevent any gapping or cracking in the planks if the humidity changes once installed. Carefully plan your space before you make your first cut. When this product says “industrial-strength adhesive” that translates to “once I’m stuck on the wall I won’t come off without a fight” adhesive.

measure-and-plan

Measure & Mark Your Cut Lines:

Be sure to measure your planks and mark on both sides of the material before scoring. Double check your wall dimension and your marked material one last time before scoring the plank.
Wallplank installation- Measure your cut line on both side of plank. | VillageHomeStores.com

Score the Planks:

Using a straight edge firmly placed along the marked lines, score the planks with a utility knife. You will want to do this on both side of the plank to achieve the cleanest break in the product.
Wallplank installation- Using straightedge score your cut line on both side of plank. | VillageHomeStores.com

Oh Snap!

Once both sides have been scored successfully, snap at the line firmly securing each side of the plank. Keep your hands close to the line to get the cleanest break.snap

Clean Up Edges:

Using your knife or a sanding block, clean up the splintered edges from your snapped planks.Wallplank installation- clean up the edges of your cut boards to remove any splintering. Use sanding block if needed. | VillageHomeStores.com

RECOMMENDED CUT METHOD:

It only took a few rows of the utility knife method for Jim to switch to using a saw for the rest of the cuts. This made for quicker and cleaner cuts of the material. If you have access to a saw for use you will be thankful for this option. For areas like outlets and airvents, you can make these cuts using a drill first as a starter hole. Then use a jigsaw or scroll saw to complete the cuts. Always use eye protection when cutting materials with a saw.
saw

Peel, Place, THEN Stick:

Remove the adhesive tape backing from the plank and place your first plank. Using your marked guidelines on the wall place your first plank. As your move along with the installation you will want to but the seams of materials together at a slight angle first before allowing adhesive to touch the surface. Wallplank installation- slide ridged edge into seam area before allowing adhesive touch wall surface. | VillageHomeStores.com

Press Firmly:

Once in place, press firmly to allow the adhesive to make as much contact with the surface as possible.  If you have one, A “J-Roller” helps with this task. Trim pieces are available if the look of the cut edges isn’t desired. Ask a salesperson about these trim options. Wallplank installation- Press adhesive into place firmly. - | VillageHomeStores.com

For Ceiling Application:

Yes you can absolutely use this wall plank system on your ceiling! It is recommended that once installed, you add small 18 gauge finish nails to help secure to the ceiling and take some strain off the adhesive being pulled by gravity.

Where can you use these wall planks? They can be installed on any structurally sound, clean, dry, and flat surface. Accent walls, decorative headboards, adding style to the back of an open shelf, the possibilities are endless and we can;t wait to see where our customers use it! It should be noted that this product is NOT recommended to install planks in any high moisture areas such as bathrooms or steam rooms. If you want this wood plank look in these areas ask us about the wood look tile options available from Village Home Stores.
