Tim Dolan Development- Spring Parade Home 2017

This Spring we have the great pleasure to have our designs and products included in a number of homes included in the Quad Cities Builders & Remodelers Association Spring Parade of Homes. This home built by Tim Dolan Development includes all cabinetry, counters, appliances, lighting, and floorcovering from our store. Just in case you can’t make it to the parade, we wanted to take the opportunity to show you around this beautiful kitchen design.

Painted white cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been installed in the “Savannah” doorstyle along the kitchen perimeter. Gray “Stone” stained Birch cabinets in the same doorstyle create a unique island design. The L-shape of the layout includes a focal wall with a gas cooktop from KitchenAid® and a decorative wood hood above.

Surrounding the gas cooktop area is a stunning hood design including carved brackets, glass-door cabinets and a section of cabinets that extend all the way down to the counters. These two narrow cabinets that frame in the cooktop area are actually pullout spice racks:

Pullout cabinetry can be used in a number of locations and for a number of tasks. Consider a deeper pullout option as a base cabinet. Bathroom vanity areas can also be wonderful locations for pullout storage for cosmetics or hair appliances. Press play below to see these pullout spice racks transform from accessibly and convenient to completely concealed

The 30″ gas cooktop by KitchenAid® is a 5-burner layout with full-width cast iron grates. The tile backsplash throughout the kitchen is a stylish elongated tile with texture. The tile is from the Artigiano series in the “Venice Statue” color. This backsplash tile is a perfect compliment to the gray quartz counters.

A 30″ wide combination microwave and wall oven is built-in to this wall of the kitchen design. This versatile appliance by KitchenAid® allows the use of the microwave cavity to be used as a secondary oven when needed. A French Door counter-depth refrigerator is a stunning investment in this appliance package.

This new model by KitchenAid® includes features like a Platinum interior and Panoramic LED interior lighting. The Preserva® foodcare system provides the very best in food preservation so your fresh foods stay that way longer. Metal and wood accents help to make this refrigerator really gorgeous! Gorgeous? You better believe it! This refrigerator looks incredible in the new kitchen…but open up the doors and the real showcase begins!

Other features include KitchenAid®’s PrintSheild™ finish to help resist smudges and fingerprinting and a 3-tier self-closing freezer drawer. There are so many incredible other features that you just have to see in person to experience. One of our favorites is a small removable prep zone tray that can be used for all kinds of prep including marinating meats or taken directly from the refrigerator to the oven.

A large, single-level island sits at the very center of the kitchen design. The quartz counters on the island and perimeter are a color named “Fossil Gray”. The island includes an undermounted sink with dishwasher within reach. There are outlets on each end of the kitchen island.

Stained panels and trim have been applied to the back of the island and two newel posts have been includes as “legs” for the island. These legs and contrasting finish to the kitchen perimeter help to give the kitchen island a furniture look. A wide plank of trim spreads from leg-to-leg as an apron to help give the island a more solid look.

All of this rests atop a stunning engineered Hickory floor from our Hallmark Floors line. Varied widths of 4″,6″,and 8″ from Hallmark’s Monterey Collection in the “Gaucho” color. These Hickory floors are installed throughout the Great Room, down the hall, and as the stair landing. The lighting for this kitchen is a great example of scale and style. The Kichler “Larkin” is a 3-light pendant and the traditional lantern shape is updated with a modern finish and exposed bulbs without glass.

One pendant hangs in the Dinette. Instead of selecting a complimenting island light, the same light is used. This helps create a great rhythm to the finished design. The scale of two pendants above this island is perfect and these fixtures can be looked at or through to help showcase the overall space.

Aloha From Iowa! A Custom, Colorful, and Classic Bettendorf Kitchen

mainIt is truly the absolute best feeling in the world to get to see customers using and loving their kitchens from Village Home Stores. I showed up to photograph this beautiful kitchen late one hot afternoon right as the school bus was dropping off the kids. Seeing them come home after school and head straight to the bottom freezer drawer for a popsicle was the perfect reminder that we help create spaces that families use all day long.  What an amazing privilege! This entire home built by Tim Dolan Development in Bettendorf, IA was full of great classic elements like high cathedral ceilings, a large wood hood with fluted columns, and beautiful moldings and trim throughout the home.

kitchen_pendantsWhile the overall look of the space may be Classic or Traditional, this home had an extra layer of color and fun brought into every room of the home I saw. This busy family has relocated to Iowa from Hawaii and with them came colorful artwork, ceramics, sculptures, and instruments. Their choice in pendant lighting was absolutely perfect in the space. These iridescent “Vine” lights by ELK look amazing on or off (shown here off).

Paneled_refrigeratorEven with Stainless Steel appliances (including a large commercial-style gas range), this kitchen has such a warm feel to it. The refrigerator is normally the largest surface to show the Stainless finish but in this design, a panel-ready refrigerator was used.  Custom panels were ordered in the same “Golden” stain with an accent glaze applied to the traditional “Seneca” raised-panel door style from our Koch Classic line.

The large island in this kitchen is the same door style but  a “Mocha” stain is applied to the Rustic Beech. This compliments the accent glaze on the perimeter cabinets beautifully.

island_backThe back of this island may appear to be a custom wainscot panel but instead these doors all open a 12″ deep area of extra storage for seasonal and bulk items. See these cabinets in action over on our YouTube channel.

sliding_shelvesSpeaking of storage there is plenty of it throughout this kitchen. Sliding shelves have recently gone from an occasional upgrade in kitchen design to an expected feature throughout. We try and include them in any standard drawer and door cabinet when we are able to.

Many customers prefer a large deep stack of drawers for pots and pans in place of doors to open and shelves to pull out. In this design a wide cabinet houses 4 sliding shelves and gives a lot of versatile storage space.

hoodThis home was just as warm and inviting as the owners who welcomed me in to see it on a hot summer day. We are so thrilled to have provided some of the materials for their new home in Iowa. See the entire album of photos from this kitchen, the bathrooms, and lighting posted as a project over on our Houzz.com profile.
