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.

Hazelwood Homes- White Painted Kitchen With Glaze and Black Island

Our first featured kitchen of the year is in a brand new home built in Geneseo, IL by the team at Hazelwood Homes. This space is a white painted kitchen with an applied glaze and a black painted accent island. It also includes quartz counters, an incredible flooring choice, and a Stainless Steel appliance package. We work closely with our new construction clients to build a team of experts from each department of our store needed. We are all one team working along with you to reach one vision. That way the time spent working on your project in and out of the Village Home Stores showroom is spent wisely. We value your time and we want to see you happy in your new home with the selections you have made from us. The process of building a home can be overwhelming but we do our best to make it fun an exciting. No matter if you are building, remodeling, or just browsing our blog for ideas, there are a lot of great material and design details in this space so let’s jump right in.

What a beautiful space! Selecting white kitchen cabinetry in a great room kitchen setting is always a wonderful choice to keep the entire open concept light and airy. It is a classic cabinet finish that has remained on home magazines covers for years and years. This kitchen space takes a classic look to a whole new level though with added details and material choices that keep it functional and very eye-catching. Beginning with the statement accent island in the center of the kitchen.

This single-level kitchen island includes storage on three sides, outlets on each end, and an overhang for counter-height seating. A gradual, curved radius has been applied to that overhang to soften the look. This island is the best area to showcase the countertop selection for the kitchen. The “Summerhill” design from Cambria Quartz is as durable as it is gorgeous. A blend of expertly curated neutral quartz colors makes it work with so many styles and material combinations. Cambria’s innovative fabrication process even adds a natural looking veining to the slabs. This gives you the look of natural stone with a control of color. It is also an incredibly durable product and perfect surface for any active kitchen. Learn more about Cambria Quartz here in a past blog post.

Above is a closer shot of the “Summerhill” tops in this kitchen. Notice how it includes whites, beiges, grays, AND even a black fleck! Stop in and see samples and installed examples of Cambria Quartz at our showroom. Curious how a Cambria color will look in your existing kitchen? There’s an AR app to “try” them on! Learn more here on the Cambria site! The perimeter counters in this kitchen have been an “Ogee” edge applied for added style and dimension. A great way to show off that the Cambria quartz colors are throughout the entire slab of material from top to bottom. Now do us a favor. Scroll back up to the very first image of this kitchen and look at the inset doorstyle of the kitchen cabinets we’ll wait right here for you to return… and reveal that AREN’T inset doors at all! But at first glance did we have you tricked?

Inset cabinetry is an incredible look and a very classic choice for any kitchen design. But in this home, we have given the illusion of a high-end inset door at a fraction of the investment. This is the “Lexington” door from our Koch Express line of cabinetry. It has been painted in the “White” finish and a “Black Accent” has been applied to the door details. That added accent is what give the illusion of a door inset and shadowed. This small detail added to a traditional-overlay cabinet door gives a great look. It also helps to compliment the black island cabinetry perfectly. We love how the kitchen island pendants compliment the appliances in this space. These 16 1/2″ pendant lights are from Quorum’s Signature Collection and are in the Satin Nickel finish. Satin nickel is a great compliment to the Whirlpool Stainless Steel appliances.

Geneseo, IL kitchen design with Koch Cabinetry and tall hood with cathedral ceiling. Design by Chris Robinson of Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | villagehomestores.com

A 26 cu. ft. French Door refrigerator with double drawers and dual icemakers is a great choice for this busy kitchen. The focal point of this wall s the 30″ wide 5-burner gas cooktop with a tall chimney hood above. Shop all of our appliances any day, any time here on our new mobile-friendly website. What a great look for this wall of the kitchen design! Look at how the tile extends all of the way up to meet the angled ceiling behind the hood. A clean look on the edge of that tile is achieved by using a metal edge band to “cap” off the ends in a complimenting Nickel finish.

Oh trust us, we know you noticed that pot-filler faucet above the cooktop right away! Our envy-radar also went off when we saw it. Choices like these are what make a space gorgeous AND functional. We wanted to also showcase here the use of a classic subway tile in white paired with an accent tile and contrasting grout. White subway tile with a dark contrasting grout is an on-trend look but it’s not for everyone. In this kitchen, it would have been a very busy look to have a darker contrast. This subtle color choice pulls a neutral from the counter surface color and the look is great. The accent tile here is from Epic Stone’s Interlocking series in the “Everest” color combination. We also used this same accent tile in one of the tiled showers in the home (shown below).

This shower includes an elongated version of a subway tile These tiles are 4″ x 16″ and installed horizontally, they add a stylish detail while helping to make the shower seem wider. That same accent tile fro the kitchen is used as a band around the shower and also reappears on the front face of the corner bench. A 2″ hexagon tile is used here as the shower floor. Notice also the installation of a shower grab bar at the entrance. See more examples of grab bars we have installed here in this Houzz ideabook. This has become a common request from our clients of all ages and abilities. Installing assistance like this that will help a customer age-at-home and just remain safe is always a great investment!

Back to the kitchen where we can mention another important investment. The flooring you choose for a new home is so important. You want to make selections that will be durable and compliment all of the other selections you are making for fixtures and furniture in your new home. In an open concept layout like this, our COREtec engineered plank floors are a great choice. COREtec comes in a large variety of wood styles and finishes so there truly is something for any space. What our COREtec customers love beyond the look is the performance! These surfaces are kidproof, waterproof, and petproof! For our remodel customers they are great because they can also easily be installed over existing hard surfaces. Contact a flooring expert at Village Home Stores to learn more.

Geneseo, IL Farmhouse Kitchen Harvests Style and Comfort

Just in time for harvest in the Midwest, this week’s remodel feature is a tailored and updated take on country charm. Who says having a house and some acreage means all the best things should happen outside? While the kitchen in this Geneseo, IL rural home boasts some incredible views outside the windows, the view is pretty great in here! Take a look at this bright and cheerful new kitchen remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores.Koch cabinetry, Cambria Swanbridge quartz, and Whirlpool appliances in a Geneseo kitchen. Complete remodel from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

White painted cabinetry, marble-look tops, stainless appliances, and soft blue-gray finishes give a refreshing new look to the space. A kitchen layout with lots of new storage and counter space greets you from the back door as well as this (above) view in from a pass-through window to the Living Room. But even with these great windows, the kitchen wasn’t always this bright and storage-focused. Like many homes over the years, the kitchen had evolved into a need for more storage space and new locations for appliances.

When working with a kitchen design expert at Village Home Stores you will help to qualify what layout and specialty cabinets will be the best way to utilize the space that you have available. In this kitchen we did not remove any walls or even soffits above. Instead, we accessed the locations of the major appliances and even found room for a dishwasher in the new design. The before and after transformation of this corner gives you an idea of how a clean, consistent depth cabinet layout can keep so much stored out of sight and free up tons of counter space. Koch cabinetry, Cambria Swanbridge quartz, and blue subway tile backsplash in a Geneseo kitchen. Complete remodel from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

The corner at the opposite end of the U-shaped kitchen was another area to be addressed. In the original space a small tiled landing zone was set up next to a crowded range area by the back door entry to the kitchen.  That made the space feel cramped and crowded to the user at the cooktop. A tiled wall is great… but if you have ever had to keep a tiled countertop wiped clean you know it can be a constant struggle with the grout lines. There was also no storage in the base area of that corner.

The new kitchen design creates a landing zone as a forward-facing drop zone area. A wall cabinet above and a standard base cabinet and drawer below plus a wall outlet from our legrand radiant collection that is fit with USB charging ports. A strip of our diode LED tape lights illuminates the drop zone and new quartz countertops perfectly. This new kitchen features our Koch Classic Cabinetry line in a beaded doorstyle named Orleans that has been painted with a White finish.

A painted white cabinet, light counters, and a whole new lighting plan makes the new kitchen very bright. Press play below to see a 360 degree view of this Geneseo farmhouse kitchen and everything we fit into it. That’s a lot of storage and open counter space!

Did you notice we even fit a tall pantry into the room? Pantry cabinets can be such a functional investment even if you can’t fit a 24″ deep one in. The original kitchen had a single wall cabinet and shelves set up below the pass-through window. 

The new kitchen now includes this tall pantry cabinet 12″ deep and 30″ wide. The top door section of the pantry has a finished interior and the doors have glass inserts for a display area. You would be so thrilled at the amount of storage a single cabinet like this can offer you. If you have an unused wall in your kitchen, nearby hallway, or even dining space it may be a great location for a shallow pantry. Crown molding on top gives it a finished look and the tall doors of this pantry are the best doors to showcase the beaded, cottage style center panels. narrow pantry cabinet in a remodeled kitchen from Village Home Stores.

In the new layout, the range location has been swapped with the refrigerator for a more functional use of the kitchen space. You can see the drop zone mentioned previously to the left of the refrigerator. A narrow cabinet to the right designates an area for baking sheets and cutting boards in the new plan.Whirlpool french door refrigerator and baking sheet organized cabinet in a Geneseo kitchen. Kitchen appliances and complete remodel from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

A full depth model from Whirlpool was used because walkway distances were not an issue with no kitchen island in this plan. In fact, this full depth model has a total of 25 cu. ft. of storage space including gallon door bins and a full-width temperature controlled deli drawer. There is even an interior water dispenser inside the refrigerator. That keeps the front of the french door refrigerator smooth and stylish. Oh and did we mention this Stainless finish by Whirlpool resists fingerprints and smudges and easily wipes clean?!?!  Whirlpool full depth WRF535SWHZ french door refrigerator with internal water dispenser.

The other appliances are pretty incredible in style and function as well. The new cooking zone of the kitchen is now located on the longest wall between the windows. Wall cabinets frame in a microwave hood also from Whirlpool. This amazing microwave model includes and Whirlpool’s innovative new Scan-to-Cook Technology. Whirlpool WMH78019HZ microwave hood with connected scan to cook features. Kitchen appliances and complete remodel from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

What is Scan-to-Cook Technology? Sounds like something out of the Jetsons right? Well with a connected Whirlpool appliance, it’s honestly is exactly as easy as scanning and then pressing start! These connected “smart” appliance features are available on many new Whirlpool appliances making them affordable AND keeping your kitchen activity simpler and easier. Press play below to learn more about the Scan-to-Cook feature available on select microwaves and ranges.

A slide-in front-control electric range sits below with landing space on each side of it. This makes the cooking zone ideal for users during prep and cooking activity. So much space and just steps from pantry storage, fresh food storage in the refrigerator and the kitchen sink to the right. We love how these front-control range designs leave the back area where the cooktop meets the wall clear for tile. Whirlpool front control electric range WEC310S0FS in a Geneseo kitchen.

The light from all the kitchen windows pours in to surround the cooking zone in the new design. We admit we would get caught daydreaming out of this kitchen sink window about a million times a day if we lived here. We love how the tiled backsplash carries up the wall to surround the window frame.

The marble-look countertops in this kitchen are the Swanbridge design by Cambria Quartz. Manufactured in the USA, Cambria quartz is an ideal kitchen surface. It is foodsafe, stain and heat resistant and there are so many incredible designs to select from in both glossy and matte finishes. Learn more about Cambria Quartz and our recent visit to the Minnesota facilities here in a past blog post. By sticking with a classic, a subtle countertop pattern, a more bold choice of wall tile could be used.Cambria Swanbridge quartz counters and a gray-blue subway tile in a Geneseo farmhouse kitchen.

The 3 x 6 subway tile from Glazzio’s Lumiere Series is amazing and the Eiffel Grey color has a faint cottage blue tint to it. Installing it in a herringbone pattern with contrasting grout lines is the perfect choice for a stylish statement. White switches and outlets from our legrand Radiant collection keep the backsplash area looking great (and notice no visible screws). Glazzio's Lumiere series subway tile in gray blue Eiffel Grey color.

Of course you know we can’t feature a great tiled kitchen wall without pointing out that our bestselling Diode LED tape lighting is why it looks so great! There is no better investment to insure you love your new kitchen day and night for many years than this lighting system. Every customer who installs it is shocked t how much they love it. Plus it is low-voltage and dimmable so you can leave it one a lot without high energy use.

What a stunning look and what a transformation! Cambria Swanbridge quartz counters as a passthrough ledge in a Geneseo farmhouse kitchen. Complete kitchen remodel from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | villagehomestores.com

We added a ledge piece of Cambria Swanbridge quartz to act as a “sill” for this pass-through window. Repeating the countertop product in a new use helps to bridge the two spaces together.

The top section of cabinet doors have glass center panels for a clerestory look. Even with every surface from floor to ceiling covered, this range wall still stays feeling open and airy. Venetian Calcutta marble tiles in a subway tile shape fill the backsplash area and extend behind the chimney-style hood on up to the ceiling. A 30″ wide wall mount chimney hood with 400 CFM’s of power sits above a front-control slide-in gas range by Maytag®.

This front-control style range includes true convection features and fits any standard 30″ wide opening for an existing range. “Slide-in” ranges used to require special countertop installations and surroundings. With the new FIT System from Maytag®, this unit will slide right into an existing opening for a custom look without hassle. The look allows your tiled backsplash the full area to be showcased. Five gas burners on top and 5.8 cu. ft. of capacity inside the oven, this range is perfect for any serious cook. A Moline, IL kitchen with Maytag appliances from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Convection features offer up a consistent temperature and with an added third element surrounding the convection fan in this unit, the entire cavity can heat up faster. That means a faster preheat with Power Preheat! Convection is easier to use than you think. Just ask one of our expert sales team members about how it works. We included a full-depth refrigerator in this kitchen design (notice the projection out into the kitchen in image below). A Moline, IL kitchen with Maytag appliances from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores

Our surface experts work with your kitchen designer to give you the best application of your selections for the best end result. The range wall in this kitchen is between two walls making it easy for tile to end. The sink wall required what is called a “Schluter® strip” (shown below).A Moline, IL kitchen with Venetian Calcutta subway tiles and schluter end strip from Village Home Stores for Hazelwood Homes. | VillageHomeStores.com

Hazelwood Homes- Kitchen With Rich Birch Wood and Shimmering Cambria Quartz

We have the opportunity to design so many unique kitchen spaces throughout the Quad Cities Region. Each and every design is unique from the next and the materials selected are just as unique and each client and home. It seems like we have shared a LOT of painted white kitchens lately on the blog but rest assured that isn’t all that we do! This Geneseo, IL kitchen from Hazelwood Homes is a wonderful example:

There is truly nothing more inviting than a warm and cozy woodgrain kitchen. Rich, wood cabinetry is paired with warm lighting and materials throughout. The look is tailored and high-end but the design and setting is so inviting. Koch Classic Cabinetry in the Westbrook doorstyle and Birch “Mocha” stain has been accented with “Black” highlights. The cabinets stretch all the way to the ceiling and the height of the wall cabinets allow for a double panel door design (see below).

Beautiful and classic subway tile is installed as the kitchen backsplash throughout and even extends to surround the kitchen window and above. One of our unique Transitions blinds is installed in the window. An arched valance detail above the kitchen sink is repeated in the custom wood hood above the cooktop.

A matching wood hood can be ordered to be placed within your kitchen design from Village Home Stores. The same raised center panels from the doors are used as a detail in hood and sink valances. A hood blower/insert can be concealed within these wood hood cabinets. These inserts can be ordered in a number of configurations and powers. That way you can customize the look AND function of your ventilation to fit your needs.

But what about small appliances? How does this kitchen not seem so cluttered? The coffeepot and toaster are hidden behind the door of a corner appliance garage cabinet. This new style of hinged door appliance garage is a welcome update from the accordion door styles of the past. Another wonderful storage solution hidden from sight is this hidden walk-in pantry:

We can order walk-through pantry door fronts to match your kitchen as well! These double doors open to reveal a huge walk-in pantry behind the wall oven area. Press play below to see the tall door open to reveal the pantry entrance.

A double wall oven by KitchenAid® is paired with an over-the-counter microwave model from Sharp®. Over-the-counter microwaves allow for you to keep a decorative hood element to your design but eliminate the need to set a microwave oven on the countertop. This model from Sharp blends well with our other appliance brands for a seamless package look.

The innovative new 5-door refrigerator models by KitchenAid® are stylish and packed with amazing features. The KitchenAid® brand was the first in the industry to introduce a 5-door model. The two small drawers in the center of the unit are refrigeration. The left drawer includes 5 preset temperatures: meat/fish, drinks, greens/herbs, deli/cheese, and even a thaw/marinate setting. The right drawer is ideal for produce storage with a built-in produce preserving featureKitchenAid 5 door french door refrigerator in Stainless Steel. | VillageHomeStores.com

This kitchen is a two-toned design that includes a contrasting finish on the batwing-shaped kitchen island. The same Koch Westbrook doorstyle from the kitchen perimeter is painted White with am “Umber” highlight on the door and drawer front details.

The island ends and back has been fit with custom doors and furniture baseboard molding for finished look. An island light from our Artcraft line hangs above the center of the kitchen island. Of course no complete kitchen can be showcased this well without our favorite secret weapon… our Diode LED undercabinet lighting. This space wouldn’t look as warm and inviting without it.
