Heartland Builders- Spring Parade of Homes 2017

This Spring we have the great pleasure to have our designs and products included in a number of homes in the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Association Spring Parade of Homes. We share a lot of remodel stories here on the blog but we also put our designs and product into new construction homes. We wanted to share some tours of these homes to give you a look at what “New Construction” looks like in the Quad Cities region. This home built by Heartland Builders is in Bettendorf, Iowa. Heartland worked with us and purchased all cabinetry, counters, appliances, and lighting for this home from our store. Let’s begin a tour with the stunning kitchen.
White painted kitchen cabinetry by Koch paired with Cambria Bellingham quartz tops in a Bettendorf kitchen. Design by Village Home Stores for Heartland Builders. | VillageHomeStores.com

A clean and classic look! White painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Ridgegate” doorstyle is paired with elongated subway tile, quartz countertops, and a KitchenAid® appliance package. A U-shaped layout with a centered island creates an open and functional space for multiple users and can accommodate many guests within the great room. The focal wall in the design is the back wall that is home to a 48″ chimney-style hood and a 48″ wide, dual fuel 6-burner range with griddle by KitchenAid® .

This commercial-style range offers features that any home chef can love along with easy-to-use basics. Convection features may sound intimidating to navigate but this model includes EasyConvect™ Conversion to help you adjust times and temperatures. 6-burners on the cooktop plus a chrome griddle that is easy to clean. Oven capacity is one of the best parts of including a commercial style range in your design.

The combined left and right ovens add up to 6.3 cu. ft. of space! With convection features you can use all of those racks at once if needed and still get consistent results! One “leg” of the U-shape includes a center glass-door cabinet and a long countertop space. This gives a built-in hutch look, and offers a great location to be used as a sideboard to serve food from or set up a beverage station.

The other “leg” of the kitchen is where the tall built-in section of appliances are. A tall, 24″ deep cabinet offers lots of storage and a center section is fit with a convection microwave oven. A stainless steel trim kit frames in this microwave for a built-in look. KitchenAid®’s built-in 42″ wide French Door refrigerator.

The built-in unit installs back with the cabinetry face frame surrounding it. This offers a much more customized a sleek look compared to a standard-depth model that would project into the space by a handful of added inches.

A center kitchen island includes lots of added storage and a pull-out wastebasket cabinets. Having your wastebaskets centrally-located and right on a corner make it so much easy for guests to find them or get direction to them. A dishwasher is also found in the island alongside a Stainless Steel farmhouse sink.

Quartz countertops in Cambria’s “Bellingham” design are a stunning selection. The blend of neutral colors and gray veining add to the classic look of this kitchen. Once installed, Cambria is maintenance free and a wonderful choice for this entire kitchen. A single handle kitchen faucet has been installed and a garbage disposal button is located right above the sink in the countertop.

These clear glass lights help keep the space seem airy and open. Our lighting experts will work with you and your kitchen designer to select the perfect look, size, and scale of lighting to hang above your kitchen island.

The same “Ridgegate” door from the kitchen has been painted in Koch’s “Taupe” paint. An “Ebony” accent glaze helps showcase the edges and details of the doors and drawers. Vanity cabinetry and a tall linen cabinet have been installed for a beautiful look with wall-to-wall mirror above the sink area. Sconces from our Kichler line are mounted directly through the mirror. Quartz counters in the “Mont Clair White” design are a beautiful blend of the cabinetry and tile colors in the bathroom. This entire home was furnished and staged by Calla located in Davenport, IA.

The lower level of this home includes a wet bar area also designed by Village. Koch’s “Vicksburg” door in a Rustic Beech wood and “Mocha” stain give a rich, warm look to the space.

Aspen Homes- Fall Parade of Homes Upscale Modern Farmhouse Style

We love that twice a year we get to attend the Q.C.B.R. Parade of homes. Every Spring and Fall you have the chance to tour beautiful new homes built right here in the Quad Cities. Having our products in these homes is an honor. We wanted to share with you the beautiful “Ridgewood” home from the 2016 Fall Parade built by Aspen Homes, LLC in Bettendorf, IA.

The perimeter cabinetry for the main kitchen area is the “Prairie” door in a Hickory wood. Koch Classic’s gorgeous “Stone” stain has been applied and the natural variation of the Hickory woodtones is enhanced. This completed design is an amazing example of “warm gray” at its best. Not only are the grays themselves warm tones, the use of stain instead of a paint allows the woodgrain to come through. Woodgrains have a way of giving a natural warmth to a space and this kitchen is no exception. It is warm, inviting, and upscale.

For a unique two-toned island application the “Stone” stain is repeated on each end. An “X” end cap has been assembled and applied for a dramatic look. The stain is a perfect subtle contrast to the “Taupe” paint of the kitchen island. This island design is truly unique and eye-catching. An overhang on the back of the island includes plenty of space for counter-height bar stool seating.

Modern farmhouse kitchen ideas. | VillageHomeStores.comBlending a variety of natural textures and materials helps to suggest the farmhouse style. Adding upscale details like polished stone counters, gold metals, and the use of clean lines and edges take that style to a more refined and classic level.  The “Calcutta Gold” Quartz countertops give the look of a natural marble material, but once installed have all the qualities of an Engineered Quartz: no maintenance at all! We absolutely love the great room light selected from Uttermost that includes gold finishes and leather bands. Great designs are well balanced and thought out. The team at Aspen Homes works closely with our designers here in the showroom to select the perfect palette for every area of your space.  When you have a Great Room setting, every detail selected matters. Selecting a smaller version of this leather Great Room light would have looked amazing above the Dining Room table. Instead, two unique lights were installed and make a statement that helped make this QCBR Parade Home stand out in a very memorable way! Modern farmhouse lighting. | VillageHomeStores.com

Two four-light mini chandeliers by Kichler are a blend of antiqued brass finish, Edison-style bulbs, and  playful exposed cords. With such a bold statement in the Dining Room, a more subtle selection was made above the kitchen island. foyerTwo seeded glass orb pendants from Kichler are the perfect choice above the island. Just around the corner from the Kitchen and Dining spaces is the front Foyer entry to the home.  This same orb shape is repeated but in a caged look including exposed Edison-style bulbs.  We are focusing on the lighting in this project feature because it is truly an important “layer” to your finishes spaces. Many times when building a new home, selecting the lighting can become an overwhelming task after so many other decisions have been made. That is why we have expert lighting designers to help guide you to help see the “big picture”. The bathrooms in this home also include some gorgeous lighting selections. In the Master Bathroom, the lighting becomes the main focal point of the space. Three-light vanity lights provide task lighting above each sink. The main showstopper is the classic and stylish three-light chandelier in the center of the Bath.

Bathroom moodboard for gray painted cabinets and chrome fixtures. | VillageHomeStores.comThis light by Feiss gives a clean and structured look to this Master Bath. The Polished Nickel finish sparkles and shines. Frameless mirrors by Uttermost hang above each sink station. The faceted look of the mirror edges bounce light allover the Master Bathroom. Vanity cabinets from our Koch Classic line are in the “Prairie” doorstyle and painted in the “Fog” finish.  With so much shine and sparkle in the space, a subtle matte finish was applied to the Onyx Collection cultured marble vanity tops. The shared Bath (shown below) also keeps the same warm grays in the mix but brings the Kitchen cabinetry finish into the space. The “Stone” stain on the Hickory wood enhances the woodgrain and adds dimension to the color. Just look at one of the cabinet doors and you will see the beautiful variation of wood tones that are shown.

Gray stained cabinet bathroom ideas. | VillageHomeStores.comThe same matte finish Onyx Collection top in solid “White” is installed in the Bathroom. Again a mirror was selected void of any metal or wood frame. The “Graziano” oval mirrors also by Uttermost are a gorgeous choice. A long double-bowl vanity and a tall linen cabinet provide a lot of storage. These beautiful bath retreats are proof that warm grays have certainly replaced basic beiges in materials selected for new home construction!

Premier Custom Homes- Fall Parade of Homes 2016

We love that twice a year we get to attend the Q.C.B.R. Parade of homes. Every Spring and Fall you have the chance to tour beautiful new homes built right here in the Quad Cities. Having our products in these homes is an honor. We wanted to share with you this beautiful home from the 2016 Fall Parade built by Premier Custom Homes in Bettendorf, IA. “White” painted Maple cabinets from our Koch Classic line are paired with “Chilkoot” Engineered Quartz counters. The kitchen island has been painted with Koch’s new “Taupe” paint. This warm choice offers a subtle two-tone option to the kitchen space without forcing a bold dark cabinet or stain as a contrast. The finished look: bright and inviting.

Tucked away in a raised area just off of the kitchen is a  versatile workstation area. Within sight of the great room, this desk keeps any desk clutter hidden from view. What a great feature for busy families! Imagine someone seated at this homework station while you finish up dinner prep. Or perhaps you work from home and want a work option close to the kitchen to keep an eye on projects during the day? When entertaining, this area could be set up as a beverage station. There are so many options.

Kichler “Basford” pendant light.

Two appropriately sized pendant lights hang above the island. Premier Homes and the lighting team at Village Home Stores took one step further and selected lighting that adds character and texture to the space. Kichler Lighting’s “Basford” pendant mixes clean lines and transitional styles with rustic details. Distressed antique weathered wood frames in the fixture and adds a unique look. These pendant lights add so much personality to the kitchen. It is now easy to picture the opposite end of this Great Room to be furnished with on-trend Rustic Transitional details just like the lights.  Same is the case in the Lower Level Bar:

Koch Express cabinets in the “Camden” door and Birch “Stone” stain installed wall-to-wall for a Lower Level Bar area. A sink in the center and space to accommodate a beverage cooler or dishwasher next to it. An open shelf with a lower drawer has been included with a space for a microwave to help keep the countertop clear for entertaining. Including floating shelves in your bar design helps to give you a unique way to display glassware or decorative items. It is easy to picture this wet bar ready to serve a crowd in this home.

The same Birch “Stone” stain is repeated in the bathroom cabinetry of the home. We love how this warm gray stain allows the woodgrain to show through. Faux granite cultured marble vanity tops by the Onyx Collection give an upscale look and come in a wide variety of colors and bowl styles. The Lower Level bathroom (shown above) is Onyx Collections’ new “Tiramisu” color and the “Wave” bowl style.
