Heartland Builders- Custom Amish Kitchen Cabinets and Marble Look Quartz Tops

Who sells custom cabinetry and countertops in the Quad Cities? Village Home Stores. -villagehomestores.com

At Village Home Stores we offer a variety of cabinetry products so that we can suit any budget and need in the Quad Cities area. When those needs are a completely customized cabinet layout and a chic custom paint and finish, our Amish-built cabinetry from Four Acre Wood Products is perfect! Since Mother Nature has blessed us with so much bright white snow this week, we wanted to return the favor to you with this bright white kitchen feature. Take a look at this stunning space in a recent home we worked on with Heartland Builders of the Quad Cities.

This bright white kitchen just HAD to be featured this week because the paint color is appropriately named “Winter White”. There is truly nothing more classic than a flat-panel kitchen cabinet painted white. It has rested comfortably atop every Kitchen and Bath showroom’s bestselling list for years and has shown no signs of getting kicked off the top of that list. In this open-concept great room space the bright white painted cabinets are a perfect way to keep the entire room feeling light and inviting.

A Lesson in Scale, Rhythm, and Symmetry:

This single image (above) is such a crash course in design we love it so much! How can you keep a single-wall kitchen design from feeling sterile or too contemporary? Careful consideration of your details and keeping a balance with those choices. Scale, rhythm and symmetry are so key in any successful design. Notice how instead of two pendants above that large kitchen island above, there are three? That’s because the scale of light fixture suggests using three to keep that great balance for the eye. Select a larger pendant light and instead two lights would look right. But how is rhythm found in design? Scroll back and “read” the image from left to right and notice what elements repeat. There is a rhythm to it! The staggering up and down of cabinet heights, the doors on the back of the island, the glass in the hood cabinet area, and those pendants.

Of course the beautiful symmetry of the design is soothing to any eye. The walking pantry front on the left is complimented by the tall refrigerator area on the right and so on. Split this kitchen design down the center and the balance is so great that even Marie Kondo herself would have nothing left to “tidy” up about it.

So Why Choose Custom Amish Cabinetry?

As we mentioned before, we have a wide variety of cabinets available at Village Home Stores. From semi-custom, stock-sized cabinets to completely handcrafted heirloom-quality custom cabinets. So why invest in the latter? Because if craftsmanship and quality is something you value, then you will make it a priority for your budget to select one of our custom cabinetry lines. Our mid-range cabinet lines offer upgrades to provide features that are just considered standards for a custom line. With even more upgrades that are available to take your cabinet design to that mentioned heirloom-quality level of craftsmanship. For instance, this Coal Valley kitchen includes soft close hardware on all drawers and doors as well as an all plywood cabinet case, lock-mitered exposed ends, and hand-sanded drawerboxes.

With a custom cabinet line you also have the ability to view and build the kitchen design as an entire completed look, not individual boxes of cabinetry. Sections of cabinetry like the wood hood area and surrounding wall cabinets (shown above) can be built as one section of cabinetry instead of four cabinets. This makes for a more seamless installation and furniture style finished look for areas like hoods, bars, and kitchen islands.

Speaking of seamless design, how about the sleek look of these quartz counters extending up as a full-height backsplash! Full-height kitchen backsplashes are such a classic look and we have been installing so many more of them in both traditional and transitional spaces. A single-wall kitchen design like this is a perfect location for this design choice. The look is fantastic and of course the surface is so much easier to keep clean than a tiled and grouted surface. This quartz is from our Q Quartz line and the faux marble look design is named “Calacatta Laza”.

We also provided the cabinetry and countertop surfaces for the rest of this gorgeous new home. We wanted to share two of the other spaces with you that had a contrasting painted “Matte Black” finish to the bright white kitchen. The first is a slab-style floating vanity we designed for the main bathroom. Floating vanities make such a unique statement and against the textured wall, this look is so fantastic! We also love that the clients chose a vessel sink to add to the vanity statement. The quartz counter surface in this bathroom is the Cambria “Blackwood” design.

We would love to raise a glass and toast this fabulous home bar area as well! The “Hastings” door in a painted black maple wood is from our Koch Classic line of cabinetry. We have paired the rich, dark cabinet finish with “Black Pearl” granite countertops. There is something so sophisticated about a glossy, polished granite top that really makes it take this home bar area to a “top-shelf” look! We also installed this same polished Black Pearl granite in an outdoor kitchen at the home (yes, we can help you make a stunning outdoor kitchen too).

Annawan, IL- Schoolhouse Bathroom Remodel

This old schoolhouse in Annawan, IL is full of great character. Tall ceilings with exposed tin panels, and a unique layout. Rustic Beech wood Koch cabinetry in the Briarwood stain and a Black Accent Glaze was the perfect choice to help showcase the other rustic material selections for this remodeled bathroom space. The main wall includes a vanity cabinet with an offset sink and stack of drawers. We ordered a matching mirror molding to wrap a custom-sized mirror perfect for the room. The new tiled shower is accessed right behind the vanity wall.Bathroom remodel in Annawan, IL with rustic details.

When remodeling, nobody wants to see wall surface go unused. Bathrooms can become a tricky area to add any storage space once all of the areas are designated to a fixture location (stool, sink, doorway, window, shower, etc). Village Home Stores also can order and install interior doors to match your remodel space. This bathroom has two walls that have each been fit with a new door. One is accessed from the nearby bedroom, the other is from the hallway. With two doorways and a window, available wall space was limited. But we found some room for storage. The window wall is now home to the stool and a lot of great storage. Bathroom remodel in Annawan, IL with rustic details. Design by Chris Robinson with materials and remodel project management by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

A tall linen cabinet fits in the corner of the new space. A linen cabinet can be helpful at any depth. Standard depths are 12″, 18″, 21″, and 24″ deep but we are able to order a custom depth cabinet to perfectly fit any space and utilize as much of that area as possible. Even just a 12″ deep linen cabinet can offer so much shelf space for toiletries and linens.

A cabinet commonly used in a bathroom is a “toilet topper” cabinet. With bathrooms trending away from medicine cabinets and instead using more framed mirrors, these can be a great solution for small item storage. Deep enough for rolls of toilet paper, and typically including a towel bar or open shelf below, these cabinets are a great addition to any space. Even with all of the extra storage cabinets, there is storage available within reach of the bath vanity area itself. 

A single sinkbase cabinet and a stack of drawers are arranged with an offset vanity bowl. Our Onyx Collection vanity tops are a great option for a bathroom. This top is in the “Prospect” color. Seamless, integrated bowls (shown here with a two-tone “Icicle” bowl for the illusion of an undermount sink) and the ability to fit any custom layout or space. Ask a designer at Village Home Stores about the many color and bowl styles available in this product. 

The exposed tin ceilings and textured wallpaper in this old schoolhouse are such interesting design details to let be showcased above the “new” walls of the bathroom. Those rustic characteristics become a great compliment to the tile materials selected for this bathroom. Faux brick tiles from our Chicago Brick line in the “State Street” color are installed as the main bathroom floor. This custom tiled shower is accessed as a door-less, walk-in shower around the corner behind the vanity wall.  The shower floor is a Pebble mosaic named “Born Wilderness”.

“Look-alike” tile is a great trend that helps add great textures to a space in a more practical tile surface for the homeowner. We have seen this brick-look tile used in so many unique spaces since we began carrying it. It works well as a floor and wall tile. If you would like to see it, we have a large area of our new lighting showroom with it installed as a floor tile. The wall of the shower is another look-alike tile. 

The look of a rustic barnwood but in a long, plank wall tile. The “Charleston” 3″ x 36″ tiles add such a blend of textures and natural colors. We included plenty of grab bars in the new shower space.  A custom tiled niche was added on the interior wall with the same pebble tile used as an accent in the back.

Bettendorf, Iowa Master Bath Remodel From Start to Finish

The Bettendorf home we featured in last week’s blog tour also received a brand new Master Suite from Village Home Stores. The entire main level of this home and portions of the lower level were remodeled from start to finish by the expert team and Project Management process from Village Home Stores. Take a look at the Master Bathroom transformation:Remodeled Master Bath in Bettendorf from Village Home Stores. Includes Koch Cabinetry and Cambria Quartz counters. | VillageHomeStores.com

From a full-wall mirror and short vanity with molded top, to a bright painted cabinet with quartz counters. Just like the kitchen we toured in our previous post, this room has a wonderful skylight that pours in natural light during the daytime. Koch cabinetry in the Legacy door is painted White and an “Umber” Highlight has been applied. Replacing the old cultured marble vanity top is a new Cambria Quartz counter with two undermount bowls in Cambria’s “Helmsley” color.Remodeled Master Bath in Bettendorf Iowa with Cambria Quartz in Helmsley design. | VillageHomeStores.com

Helmsley is a stunning quartz design that gives the look of a natural stone with all of the benefits of quartz. Non-porous and extremely durable, quartz is a maintenance-free surface for your bathroom. A blend of dark browns and blacks mix with a neutral background. A sparkling silvery veining moves through the slabs to create a pattern normally found in a natural stone slab.  We added a lot of great storage to the new bathroom as well. Bathroom storage ideas in a Bettendorf Iowa home remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

A tall and deep cabinet on the end of the vanity run provides linen storage. Between the two vanity sinks is a wall cabinet installed atop the Cambria countertop. This wall cabinet includes a shelf storage area behind the door and two drawers. This layout is perfect for double-bowl vanity bathrooms that need as much storage space as possible. In addition to the large mirror above the vanity, there was an entire alcove of mirrors surrounding a large tub accessed by a carpeted stair in the original space.

It is such a common request these days for us to remove a large Jacuzzi tub and install a large tiled shower in its place. In this bath design, we used the tub space for the shower and a walk in closet area in the new layout. In the image below you see the framing of the shower wall niche and beyond that, the closet space where the tub used to sit. 

We created a walk-around entry to this tiled shower space.  The same 12″ x 24″ tiles on the main bathroom floors are used as the shower wall tiles. The series is named “Marazzi Silk” and the color is “Elegant”. This installation pattern is called a straight lay, as the tiles lay straight on top of each row. The main bathroom floor is a brick lay pattern that staggers the location of the tiles.

Custom showers can be a wonderful solution for bath remodels because we are able to create them using any odd or unique space you may have. Ask a designer at Village Home Stores if one could work in your own space. There is a custom tiled niche built into one of the walls. In the back of that niche is an accent tile from our Jeffrey Court line named “Crushed Mood Glass” the color is “Medley Karma”. This accent tile has been installed horizontally to compliment the direction of the main wall tiles. 

The shower in this featured bathroom also includes a shallow bench area to be used a footrest or for added toiletries shelving. This area is sometimes referred to as a “toe shelf”. The same series and color of tile from the wall is used but in a smaller, 2″ x 2″ size. That same smaller tile is repeated as the shower floor.

We didn’t just remodel the kitchen and bathroom in this home, we did so much more. There was another bathroom in the lower level we remodeled, as well as all new flooring throughout the home. We even took this back door storage area of separate closets and transformed it into a new full width wall of storage.

Village Home Stores isn’t just beautiful kitchens and bathrooms, we want every space and surface in your home to look great. That includes every closet and stairwell. The main stairwell in the home was transformed from a dated tea rose patterned carpet to a neutral and transitional styled space. 

This home has been totally transformed for the new owners! See the full album of photos from this project here on our award-winning Houzz page.

Quad Cities- Bath Remodel With Custom Locker and Hidden Laundry

Down the hall from this stunning kitchenette we shared recently is a remodeled bathroom packed with storage, function, and style. With a pool out back, this walk-out basement was in need of a large functional bathroom space ready for busy Summertime pool days. The vanity area is gorgeous.

Design and materials by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

An open shelf below is perfect for stacking extra towels for guests. The furniture look of the Dura Supreme vanity is enhanced by the edge detail on the Cambria counters. Each corner swoops out an adds a details that the light catches. Cambria Quartz in the Torquay design gives the polished look of marble in a durable and non-porous engineered quartz.

With this busy bathroom being so close to the pool, a secondary laundry area was on the wish list. We were able to design an area that hides a stack-able unit right within the bathroom. Hidden pantry front doors aren’t just for pantry areas! And with the Inset door style selected, the doors can roll back with pocket door hardware and allow full access to the laundry.

A custom tiled shower in a bathroom allows you to truly make the most of your space. Plus the look of carrying a tiled floor into a shower helps to make the room seem larger. This look is only made stronger when you pair it with a glass door entry. In this bath we were able to include a full glass wall and even turn the corner with a small section of glass.

12″ x 12″ wall tiles and 3″ x 3″ floor tiles in the shower plus a custom niche for toiletries. Even with a shower this large there was enough space to include a custom cabinet locker area at the bathroom entry. The unit hugs the entire corner all the way to the door. Why stop at the wall switch if you can just include it in the design? We used the clean design and style of our Adorne Series of switches and the look is great. Custom cabinet with outlet on side panel.

An L-shaped bench with beaded panel walls and robe hooks was installed. We stacked crown molding so that the locker bench area stretches all the way to the ceiling. The Chapel Hill doors are inset into the faceframe and the top section of cabinets here are top-hinged. We love the use of frosted glass in the Chestnut Cherry cabinet.

Below the bench is even more storage in drawers. Imagine a busy pool party weekend and each guest getting a section of this locker. A wonderful way to keep the clutter contained. This bathroom space is so beautiful and functional. We love how it turned out.

Coal Valley, IL- A Master Bathroom Takes “Shape”

In our last feature post we shared a tour of a stylish and sophisticated kitchen remodel. That same home in Coal Valley, IL also includes a remodeled Master Suite area just as stunning! A sliding barn door in the Master Bath opens to reveal a walk-in closet, makeup vanity room, and a beautiful bathroom space.

Just like the kitchen, this bathroom began in a beige setting with a medium Oak vanity. A wall-to-wall installation of vanity and top included a cultured marble vanity top with two integrated bowls.

The new vanity area now includes an inset White painted vanity from our Dura Supreme line. The “Highland” doorstyle is inset into the vanity face frame for a classic and stylish look. White wall paneling has been installed throughout the new bathroom and is divided up to create shapely pattern.
Remodeled Quad Cities bathroom with inset cabinetry by Dura Supreme. | VillageHomeStores.comShapes and shadows are truly the centerpiece to the details in this Master Bath. From the inset door edges, to the unique wall sconces, everything makes a statement. We love that the accents of gold from the other areas of the home have made it into this Master Suite.

The wall sconces are mounted directly through the wall-to-wall mirror. This helps keep the bathroom space seem more open and airy by having the maximum amount of mirror available to bounce and reflect light around.

The Honey Gold finish and white fabric shade are right in place with the rest of the materials selected. The squared off corners of the gold frame reflect and create an almost greek key design.

Beneath the mirror and sconces sits a gorgeous new vanity top. Instead of a double bowl vanity, a single offset layout has been installed. This allows for more countertop space and allows the pattern of Cambria® Quartz “Brittanicca” to take center stage. A clean and stylish blend of whites and grays, this quartz has a natural marble look with the maintenance-free perks Cambria® offers. The vanity top has a “Large Ogee Edge” applied.

With a vanity area that stunning how could a shower still grab your attention? Well… we removed the shower curtain to take a few photos so you can get the full wow-factor!

We were correct about that wow-factor weren’t we? Using a dark gray grout here helps to enhance the geometric pattern of the tile installation. This tile by Florida Tile is appropriately named “Hex” is a glossy white hexagon pattern.

Proof that you do not  need a mosaic of colors to make a bold statement with tile, this shower is amazing! A mix of two shapes of the same colored tile installed in a modern look. We love the stacked install on these long, horizontal tiles.

One the wall opposite the shower head is a custom tiled niche area. Inside of that niche the same “Hex” tile has been used and glass shelves allow light to pass through. Including a custom shelf or niche is always helpful when planning a tiled shower.

Many times custom tiled showers include a tiled base for the floor. This customer wanted to avoid grout lines to be cleans on the floor and instead chose a stylish shower base custom made for her by the Onyx Collection. This base is poured in Kansas and available in many colors and can be customized to even the strangest of shapes. A textured pattern is included in the base for added traction. The color selected for this bathroom is named “Constellation” and it is a great compliment to the dark gray grout.
