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.

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.

Davenport, IA Remodel: Upgraded and Accessible.

This Davenport, IA kitchen has received a whole new look! The entire remodel process was managed from start to finish with the Complete Project Management Program at Village Home Stores. Upgraded layout features and a stunning selection of materials, welcome to our latest featured kitchen remodel…
Davenport, IA remodeled kitchen with grey cabinets and Stainless appliances. | VillageHomeStores.com

Knotty Alder cabinetry from our Dura Supreme line has been stained in the “Cashew” finish. The “Arcadia” doors have received a “Coffee” glaze to help accent the door details and rustic features of the Knotty Alder. A sophisticated Stainless Steel suite of appliances by KitchenAid offers a great finished look and exceptional features. Cambria Quartz countertops in the “New Quay” design have a classic and neutral range of colors. Press play below to watch the episode of The Village Home Show that includes a full video tour of this completed space:

This entire space is furnished with a warm grey palette of materials in a variety of tones and textures. Before we show you around the new space, check out this before photo of the original kitchen:

What a transformation of style and space! The original kitchen was an L-shaped layout with a small dinette area. A wall divided this kitchen space from an adjacent Dining Room. The new layout opens up the kitchen into that available Dining Room area. Take a look at this design rendering from the presentation stage of this remodel project:Kitchen Designers in the Quad Cities. | VillageHomeStores.comThis is the view into the new design from the Dining Room table. The cooking center of the kitchen has been moved to the original dinette area and a peninsula of base cabinetry caps off the end of the kitchen in the new open-concept design. The refrigerator stayed in the same location but the cabinets surrounding it have been selected to better use the space. The wall that now includes a gas range and chimney-style hood has been upgraded from a “meh” dinette space to a magazine-cover worthy new look!

This wall has now become the focal point of the entire new space. If the sleek look of the new range and chimney-style hood doesn’t grab your eye, the backsplash design sure will! A “Cascade” mosaic series of tile from our Glazzio line has been installed throughout the kitchen as the main backsplash. The “Diamond” series in a complimentary color spans the entire space behind the range and hood. KitchenAid’s freestanding slide-in gas range with Even-Heat™  True Convection features flawless baking results. The EasyConvect™ Conversion feature takes guesswork out of convection cooking by converting conventional settings for recipes to convection settings for you as you enter in the recipe’s temperature and contents. This cooking center of the kitchen was designed so that items and prep space can all be within reach of the range. Large deep drawer stacks are on either side and two pull-out spice racks flank the range unit. Click play below to see one of these pull-outs in action:
This same pull-out concept can be installed in a shallower wall cabinet or in bathroom vanity setting. Shown here full of spices it is easy to picture use in a busy kitchen. Consider this same cabinet in a master bathroom. A pull-out cabinet can be the perfect way to store makeup and hair products. Even appliances like flatirons or blow driers can be stored perfectly in a “grooming rack” cabinet.  In the new sink area of this Davenport, IA kitchen a pull-out towel rack was installed. Click play below to see this innovative option:
A rack for hanging towels and shelving above and below all offer space for cleaning supplies. Knifeblocks, tray dividers, and even pegboards for utensil storage all can be located within a pull-out unit. We have many of these examples on display in our Geneseo, IL showroom so stop in to see them in person. The new sink wall turns a corner into a peninsula area where the original dividing wall once stood. The back of this peninsula is now visible from the Dining Room and Living Room areas. Finishing off the cabinetry with a decorative end panel and matching doors for the back help give the the peninsula a completed look. If you look closely you will notice that the cabinet door against the wall has a handle. Access to storage below this countertop overhang has been included.

The accessible storage on the back end of the peninsula is there due to cabinet choices made on the inside of the kitchen design.  In the corner of this design the customer wanted to include wide drawers in place of a lazy susan or other corner cabinet option. The sinkbase cabinet and drawer stack each meet in the corner and leave enough space on the end of the peninsula for a wastebasket cabinet. As we mentioned previously, pull out cabinets come in a variety of internal layouts from Dura Supreme. Wall and even tall pantry cabinets can include pull-out features but by far the most popular pull-out cabinet from this or any of our cabinetry line is a wastebasket cabinet.

Dura Supreme builds their pull-out wastebaskets to hold the bins near the floor of the cabinet. This gives the bins a more solid and sturdy space once they are full, and make loading and unloading trashbags easier. Above the peninsula two pendant lights have been installed. These “Neillo” mini-pendants by Kichler Lighting hang directly above the kitchen peninsula where a wall once divided the kitchen and dining spaces. Now that the two areas are one open concept, a 3-light fixture from the same series has been installed above the Dining Room table. Our lighting experts at Village will help you decide the best size, quantity, and style of lighting for your new space.

The original kitchen in this Davenport, IA home did not include enough accessible pantry storage space. A solution for the new design was to include a tall and wide pantry cabinet fit with adjustable slide-out shelves. The customers didn’t want to have a microwave hood take any of the design impact away from that great cooking center wall. They also wanted to use every available inch of base cabinet space for easily accessible storage.  A small landing space was created to the right of the pantry area that is large enough to accommodate a large-capacity countertop microwave.

Below this landing space is a wide stack of drawers used to store plates, bowls, and mugs. Village Home Stores offers a wide range of cabinet lines. With each line of cabinets you have the ability to upgrade cabinet construction and drawer box options. The “drawer guides” are the hardware that allow that drawer box to move in and out from the cabinet frame.
Drawers for dishes and mugs. | VillageHomeStores.com

This kitchen was ordered with “dovetailed” drawer boxes and full-extension guides. This means that when the drawer is all the way “open”, you have full access to the entire drawer box. These same full-extension guides have a soft-closing feature included. The soft-close feature makes it impossible to ever “slam” a drawer shut. A soft-close door hinge was also included in this kitchen. Anything from light tap to a forceful swing, all of the doors in the new space close slowly and quietly. above_pantry

This kitchen was remodeled from start to finish and from floor to ceiling. With walls being removed, a new ceiling was required and with a new footprint to the kitchen layout, new flooring was in order! This flooring choice is absolute perfection! A high-end look and an eye-catching application, Provenza Hardwood was installed at an angle. This “Antico Vintage” floor is the exact shade of all of the glazed detail on the knotty alder cabinetry. Provenza Hardwoods are hand-scraped AND hand-stained. In fact everything about Provenza Hardwoods is handcrafted. There is no machined work involved. This may add some time to receiving the product, but in turn it certainly ads to the value of your investment! provenza_flooring
