Prophetstown, IL- A Kitchen Remodel Transforms This Ranch Home

We recently finished a full kitchen remodel at this ranch home in Prophetstown, IL. The entire process was managed from start to finish by the Complete Project Management Program at Village Home Stores.  This means that we managed the entire process from early on in the bidding and designing phases, through the final project walkthrough. Take a look at this beautiful and bright new kitchen!

Of course this space didn’t start out giving out such bright and spacious feelings to guests and users. It began as an open but dated kitchen. Unique traits such as the wall ovens in a brick wall helped to give it an edge. With a new homeowner in 2017 came the opportunity to update and upgrade this space.

Don’t worry we kept that brick! We did make quite a few upgrades in layout and materials throughout the rest of the space. This kitchen has gone from a medium-toned wood to a bright painted white. That change alone transforms the look and feel of the kitchen for guests and users. One upgrade we should begin with is that this is now a kitchen that includes 4 ovens…wait what?!?! Yes FOUR OVENS!

Allow us to walk you through a tour of the new cooking center in the kitchen. A 24″ single wall oven, 24″ combination microwave/wall oven, and a slide-in gas range that includes a lower baking drawer. That offers all the convenience of each of the units for day-to-day use and lifestyle. But for those few times every year when entertaining, this KitchenAid® package offers 4 ovens all can be used at 4 different temperatures!

Many times our customers are drawn to a slide-in model of a range for the look and integration into a clean new kitchen design it allows. KitchenAid® has made such incredible changes to these sleek new models by including many features and benefits that were once reserved for their larger, more commercial style units. One new innovative feature we must mention is the shift from a “warming drawer” to the new baking drawer. Yes you can still set it on a “keep warm” function or even store your baking sheets in it when not in use. However, new changes as to how you select the setting of this drawer have opened up the opportunity to now use this space to bake or slow-cook items at a different temperature from the main oven area. All of these great features PLUS convection in the oven in a 30″ model! With all of this talk of baking temperatures and capacity we don’t want to breeze over the fact that the gas cooktop on this model is enviable as well!

5 burners that collectively range from 5,000-19,000 BTU’s. That allows you to shift from a rolling boil to a very low simmer almost immediately. Above the cooktop we have installed a wall-mount 30″ canopy hood in Stainless Steel. This hood has been fit with a re-circulation kit. We would classify this kitchen as a great example of what New Traditional is becoming in the Midwest region. A smart working layout and durable materials with clean lines help to keep a kitchen functional and beautiful. New Traditonal is also about including great textures (hello brick) and adding historic details like the schoolhouse shaped pendants used here.

We love that these “Garvey” pendants by Savoy House allow light out of the fixture and also through. Using clear glass here helps to keep the space more open and bright. The shape does lend itself to that old world look and adds style. The metal finish of the fixtures also helps reflect light and compliments the Stainless Appliances without duplicating it.

We realize we jumped right into an appliance tour without showcasing the new kitchen itself. An L-shaped kitchen design with a large single-level island fills the kitchen with storage and surfaces that are usable and accessible. The arch of the countertop at the center offers up an overhang space for the island seating.

Cambria® Quartz counters in the “Berwyn” design have been installed in a stylish “Ogee” edge profile. This decorative edge looks right at home in this space. With such a bright room and material selection, the light hits the edges of the Ogee detail and really helps to showcase the quartz color and details like that arched island top.

Quartz is a fantastic choice for a countertop investment. Once installed it is maintenance free and will look as gorgeous 15 years from now as it does today in these photos. With so many designs and edges to select from, you can almost certainly find something for any space.

The usable space of the kitchen now seems like a larger area even though we didn’t open up or remove any walls. In fact we added to the cabinetry in the new kitchen design. On the opposite end of the kitchen used to sit a closet pantry area behind bi-fold doors.

Now that pantry area has become a built-in hutch and sideboard part of the new kitchen design. Still a location for great storage, there is plenty of shelf space above plus deep base cabinets with roll-out shelves below. An open counter area now allows this area to be used for serving while entertaining. Imagine it set up as a drink station during holiday get-togethers.

As you look at the above and below images it is very clear that the best way to showcase an area like this in your project continues to be our Diode LED lighting system. Keep in mind these photos were taken during the day. Even so, the lighting is what takes all of this design and material to the next level. What good is it to invest is such beautiful products if you can’t see them?

There is a beveled subway tile throughout the new kitchen from our Rittenhouse Series. The color is “Arctic White Gloss”. It is important to note a very updated look to the classic subway tile of the past: gray grout. White subway tile with a gray grout installation is such a great look. It is a new approach to an old look and we continue to love every job we get to install with it. Another area that we added cabinetry to is an angled, shallow cabinet section designed for a TV on an open wall.

Just enough of a counter space for a flatscreen but look at all that added storage below! The cabinetry in the kitchen is from our Koch Classic line. The doorstyle is named “Bristol” on a paint-grade maple. This flat-panel door works well for may styles and tastes. This kitchen it was ordered with 5-piece drawer fronts and a decorative outside edge applied to the doors and drawers. In a bold contrast to the white painted cabinets is the beautiful new hardwood flooring beneath everything.

Random widths of 3/4″ thick maple from our Bella Cera Alessandria series is finished in the “Padua” finish. A painted white kitchen always helps to make a space seem larger and more brighter both day and night. The light catches the texture and varied widths so beautifully. See the full album of photos from this kitchen here on our Houzz page.

Bright white cabinets that reach all the way to the ceiling. We have found that sentence to be so common when we ask our clients what their dream kitchen looks like. The great news is that look can be interpreted in so many styles and budgets. Here it looks right at home paired with coved crown molding and with top sections cut for glass creating a clerestory look.

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.
