Davenport IA- Basement Bathroom Gets the 5 Star Treatment

Just beyond the bedroom door of the Home Bar we shared in the last post, is a bedroom suite with a stunning new bathroom. This space immediately fools you into believing you have just checked into a 5-star Spa. A warm-gray palette and a jaw-dropping lighting statement make this one of our favorite projects of 2017! We think after you take a look around you will agree.

DuraSupreme cabinetry in the Shaker door and painted “Pearl” finish have been designed to offer as much storage as possible for the space. Stacked crown molding reaches all the way to the ceiling and plenty of drawer storage is within reach of either sink.

Two tall cabinets in the corner offer linen storage on shelves. The best way to get a feel for the layout and space is to look around! Press play below to take a look around this spa-like getaway complete with a custom tiled shower area:

The most remarkable elements in this finished design are the lighted mirrors. These back-lit mirrors were an idea our client had hoped we could ingrate into the design. Custom mirrors mounted with our Diode LED lighting behind them turns out to be a match made in heaven!

Behind the custom mirrors from Steve’s Mirror and Glass we mounted to LED tape to back-light them. This Diode tape is low-voltage AND low-profile. That makes it perfect for unique custom projects like this. This same back-lighting look can be used in any area of your home. Imagine an entryway mirror, artwork, or a long mirror in a walk-in closet space. Press play below to peek behind the mirrors:

Proof that if you have an idea for your dream space… just ask! We have the resources to try our very best to make it happen. Clear communication of your budget and timeline is always key. Your team at Village Home Stores can help you decide what elements of you “dream” spaces are a must-have items for the overall look and budget or if there are alternatives. We want to keep you on track AND on budget.

The cabinetry in this bathroom was ordered with what is called “five-piece drawer fronts” to give each drawer the added detail of rails and stiles. Of course what you can’t see in these photos are other features like dovetailed drawerboxes, self-closing drawers, and soft-close doors. The area shown below is installed at a lowered height and now is fit for a seated makeup vanity area.

Bathrooms can be such a unique canvas for a stylish space. There are so many surfaces and fixtures that can add to an overall finished design. The Kohler “Symbol” faucets are absolutely gorgeous in this bathroom. They are mounted aside a Demi-Lav sink perfectly named “Wading Pool”.

The vanity areas have Cambria quartz counters in the “Berwyn” design and standard Eased edge profile. Quartz is a fantastic choice for a bathroom counter because it is stylish and extremely durable. Heat from hair appliances and makeup solutions and removers are no threat to the sparkling surface. Read more about the quartz investment in this previous post about our recent trip to Cambria.

Berwyn includes so many colors that are right on target for trends in the Kitchen & Bath industry. It pairs so well with bright whites and nearly all varieties of grays. A large walk-in tiled shower is always at the top of many bathroom wishlists. Take a look at the finished shower in this bathroom!

Because of the layout, a shower door isn’t needed. In fact there is even a turn in the shape to offer the user privacy. Right at the entry is a towel bar that warms your towel as you shower. The Jeeves E curved towel warmer is the perfect treat-yourself detail for a shower like this.

8″ x 32″ woodlook tile from the Woodland series in “Rectified Maple” is paired with accents of a Pebble mosaic tile in the Fiji Cream color. The tile from Sunderland Brothers looks perfectly on-trend and unique while still remaining neutral. Woodgrain tile gives you a unique look in an easy-toclean surface.

That same accent pebbled tile is used as the shower floor. By using this textured pebble tile as the shower floor, you are treated to a foot massage every time you use it!  Plus if the warm towel waiting for you isn’t enough pampering, just turn on the heated floors for you once you exit the shower.

It is no mystery why we are so in love with how this bathroom turned out. It checks all the right boxes: stylish, inviting, unique… oh and did we mention the client was just the bee’s knees?!?!  We love it when a customer is just as enthusiastic about the process and the project as we are. She was wonderful to work with on the whole project. This Lower Level remodel project includes this bath, a basement bar area, craft room and home gym space. See the full project here on our Houzz page. We hope to very soon feature it on an upcoming episode of the Village Home Show. Are you ready to talk about your OWN project with our store?

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.

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.

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.

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.
