Davenport, IA- Warm Cherry Cabinets and Large Black Painted Island

This Davenport, IA kitchen has been completely remodeled to extend its footprint into a nearby dining room. There is now plenty of space for a long L-shaped layout with a large island. Warm Cherry cabinetry from our DuraSupreme line has been installed in the full-overlay  “Kendall” doorstyle and “Clove” finish. A “Black” painted island in the same raised-panel doorstyle offers a bold contrast to the kitchen cabinets and new LVT White Oak flooring.

With the removal of a wall that divided the original kitchen from the dining room taken out, there is now plenty of space for a large kitchen island. The new island measures over 8 feet in length and includes large drawer storage and doors that open to reveal slide-out shelves within. Press play below to watch this entire remodel story unfold on Season 2 Episode 6 of the Village Home Show.

This episode of our show helps to walk you through the entire remodel process from start to finish with us. We often share just the before and after parts of a remodel story… but that is not the whole story at all! This episode allows us to return to the jobsite while the real work is happening. With our show, we are able to give you access to more of the entire story that went behind the beautiful finished kitchen tours we share here on the blog. Take a look at the before and after images from this kitchen below highlighting how much more cabinet space is now available with the center wall removed.Davenport kitchen before and after remodel. | VillageHomeStores.com

Because it can now stretch into the original dining room area, this new kitchen design is nearly double what it once was. There is even an area remaining for a casual dining space with 4 chairs. Just because we have absorbed the original dining room as part of the new kitchen, doesn’t mean this home is left without one. An adjacent front room has now been claimed as the new formal dining room area. The before and after image below shows the view into the new kitchen from this new front room dining area. Dining room becomes part of kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

The window that now sits above the sink was far to low in the original dining room to accommodate a kitchen beneath it. A new window was installed at a taller height and now instead of looking up to a pass-through, the sink user gets a beautiful view! The cabinetry surrounding the new kitchen window has been finished with raised-panel ends for an added design detail. Can lighting is concealed behind a matching cherry valance and a cherry dustcover on the ceiling completes this look.

Beautiful Cambria® Quartz counters in the “Fairborne” design are installed in a standard “Eased” edge profile. A Tumbled Travertine tiled backsplash is a perfect match in tone adding a new texture against the smooth, polished quartz tops. A 50/50 well sink by Blanco in the “Biscotti” finish has been undermounted to the quartz.

The remodel process with Village Home Stores doesn’t begin on that first demo day. Your remodel starts with us in the store during the designing and material selection phases of your project. A wood hood look like the one shown above begins as a full-color rendered design you can see in your first presentation from our store. Renderings help you get a better vision for the finished space including the materials you have selected.

As you will see in the episode, there are plenty of specialty cabinets within this kitchen design. Dura Supreme offers a wide variety of pull-out options including knife blocks, spice racks, and this towel bar cabinet. Keep cleaning supplies accessible but separate from food with one of these unique specialty cabinets. This towel cabinet also works great in a bathroom or laundry room design.

Surrounding the refrigerator is a tall pantry cabinet that has been fit with adjustable slide-out shelving. There is a built-in pantry storage area on the end of the kitchen that is not shown in these images. That pantry can now be used for household items and food storage can be exclusively in this tall unit adjacent to the refrigerator.

The tall pantry is capped off with an open shelf cabinet that faces those entering from the garage-entry end of the kitchen. Applied doors have been attached to the end of this cabinet to sit flush with the pantry doors and customize the look. The shelves can be used to display seasonal decor, cookbooks, or decorative dishes. This design also works well on the end of an island as we have shown in this Moline kitchen tour.

Colona, IL- Lakeside Home Gets a Refreshing New Remodel

Not every before and after remodel story involves removing walls to get a new layout. This lakeside home in Colona, IL is the perfect example of what we mean. To get the new kitchen design to “open up” here, we actually closed off one of the walls. Take a look at the before and after below to see the doorway that was closed off in order to create a full U-shaped layout for the new kitchen:
kitchen before and after in Colona, IL. Remodeled from start to finish by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

What a transformation! Now this wall has become the main focal point of the new design with this hood surround at the center of all attention. Koch Classic Cabinetry in the “Legacy” doorstyle and “Pearl” painted finish with “Umber” Highlight have been paired with Cambria® Quartz counters and a stylish new Stainless Steel appliance package from KitchenAid®. There is so much great storage and style in this kitchen that we HAD to include it in an episode of the Village Home Show just to have the opportunity to show you around in detail. The original kitchen was in desperate need of more drawers for storage. This new layout includes many drawers in the kitchen perimeter as well as the new kitchen island. Press play below to see for yourself.

When you choose to work with Village Home Stores you can expect to get the best experience available from our expert staff. This includes how you are able to visualize your project during the designing and material selection stages. Below are the design renderings that were presented to this customer in those first few meetings: rendering

Helping you visualize the full concept of your design is a responsibility we take very seriously. It is why you can’t just walk into our store and leave an hour later with a professional design. We are a Kitchen and Bath Design Center. When you set an appointment with us we want you to be so thrilled with your experience from that very first presentation all the way until the final walk-through. Our process may take longer than other stores but we believe that every project deserves the same care and attention no matter what the size. Building a home or remodeling, neither is a process that should be rushed. The hood concept for this kitchen is not ordinary by any circumstances. The look was achieved by building an arched surround for the Cherry wood hood and then tiling the surface with four different 6″ x 24″ Ecowood tiles. The end result is breathtaking and unique!

Unique kitchen range hood surround. | VillageHomeStores.com

Concealed within the Cherry wood hood is a Broan hood blower insert. Not to be ignored right below this new hood area is a KitchenAid® slide-in gas range packed full of style and features! This gas range boasts 5 gas burners on the cooktop ranging from 5,000 to 19,000 BTU’s. Get flawless baking results with convection features in the oven and take advantage of added features like a wireless probe and a steam rack within the oven. Would you believe us if we told you this model is also technically a DOUBLE oven?! That drawer below is not just for storing bakeware or warming dishes!

KitchenAid® has taken the concept of a warming drawer to a whole new level. Introducing the innovative new baking drawer. This separate compartment allows you to keep warm, slow cook or bake at a different temperature from the main oven and keep dishes warm. This range sits atop a wood-look luxury vinyl tile from our Mannington® Adura Plank line. The “Ashford Walnut” color might fool you in these photographs but trust us, even in person you will not believe this isn’t hardwood. Adura Plank Luxury Vinyl Tiles (also known as LVT’s) are durable, scratch-resistant, waterproof, and easy to clean.  The sink wall of the new design has changed dramatically once the doorway to the nearby Living Room was closed off.

The refrigerator was moved to the opposite end of this sink wall and an undermount copper farmhouse sink is the new eye-catching detail of this section of the new design. An arched valance in the toespace of the sink base cabinet is an added design detail that helps set the look off. This copper sink will begin to age with a beautiful patina and become a character piece in the new kitchen.

This copper farmsink has been under-mounted to new Engineered Quartz countertops from our Cambria® Quartz line. The quartz design selected for this project is named “Langdon” and the 1/2″ rounded edge profile has been applied to the tops. The veining and charactor of a slab of natural granite, but all of the benefits of maintenance-free quartz. Cambria® is the perfect material for this project. The large island top is the best showcase of the pattern and colors:
cambria_langdon

The new kitchen island is a large surface for preparation, and entertaining. The cooktop used to dominate the old island counter surface but now the island is versatile and stylish. outlets on each end of the island are camouflaged in color to allow access to power when needed but not steal from the finished look of the applied door paneled ends. The doorway into the new kitchen was widened to open up the space. A peninsula was installed at the entrance to provide more storage and counter surface as well as an overhang to accommodate seated guests.
Before and After images of a remodeled kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

This new widened entrance with a peninsula has changed the overall layout and function for the kitchen. Above the peninsula overhand hand two decorative pendant lights by Kichler. This couple chose to install the “outdoor” pendant style of this light because they included this beautiful seeded glass. We think the lights are perfect!

Shown behind the lighting in the image above are two X-shaped wine cubbies. Plenty of wine storage is easily accessible from either side of the peninsula when entertaining. When guests enter the new kitchen design they get the illusion that instead of a peninsula and an island, this kitchen has two islands. This look is achieved by having the complete island in a Cherry “Mocha” stain plus the back and end of the kitchen peninsula has been installed in that same “Mocha” finish.
Kitchen with Peninsula and island. | VillageHomeStores.com

The Cherry “Mocha” stain from the island and peninsula is repeated in the wood hood area. Two-tone look kitchen designs have come a long way in the past few years. You are not just limited to contrasting crown or an island. Ask you designer what creative ways you could include a second finish in your own design.

The cooking center of this new kitchen is stylish and extremely functional. Not only are there incredible features on this new KitchenAid® gas range, the storage and surfaces surrounding it grant the user the best experience possible. Everything is right within reach including a tray divider cabinet and pullout spice rack. There is available countertop surface on each side of the hood surround and access to that incredible new Island top directly behind the user.

Colona, IL- A Laundry Room With “Loads” of Style

This may be a Laundry Room tour, but don’t miss out on an opportunity to see inspiration here for any space in your home. Every design detail and material selection showcased in this tour translates perfectly into an option for your own kitchen or bath project with Village Home Stores. As we show you around this incredible new spacious multi-purpose room, take note of what grabs your eye. Pardon the unavoidable play on words but there is “loads” of inspiration in this space! Press play below to watch a video tour of this finished space on a recent episode of the Village Home Show.

A spacious new layout for this Laundry Room includes a long wall of storage and countertops divided into three sections. This wall of the design has been designated the “folding wall”, a place to sort, hang, and organize laundry tasks. The dark painted finish shown above is a painted finish from our Durasupreme Cabinetry line. The paint is named “Graphite” shown here on the “Silverton” doorstyle. Cabinetry throughout provides added storage to this hallway room for far more than just laundry items. On the wall opposite is a sink and cabinet area finished in the “Zinc” paint with “Slate” accent glaze. These cabinets surround a Maytag® laundry pair ready to tackle your toughest loads:
laundry pair in Metallic Slate finish by Maytag. | VillageHomeStores.com

This front load Washer and Dryer is in Maytag®’s stylish new Metallic Slate finish and has been raised up onto storage pedestals. With 4.5 cu. ft. capacity in the washer and 7.4 cu. ft. in the dryer, that is enough capacity to clean 29 towels in one load. Maytag is so confident in this laundry pair (manufactured in Ohio) they include a 10-year limited parts warranty on the key components of your investment: The Direct Drive Motor and Stainless Steel Wash Basket on the Washer, and Drive Motor and Drum on the Dryer. This Washer delivers best cleaning in the industry driven by Maytag®’s PowerWash® system, featuring the extra cleaning action of the PowerWash® cycle and an internal heater. Other great features of this laundry pair are:

  • The Fresh Hold® option keeps clean clothes smelling fresh in the washer with an internal fan and tumbling feature that circulates air through clothes for up to 12 hours after the wash cycle ends.
  • An internal heater provides steam and sanitize cycles. Use steam settings on tough stains and remove 99.9% of household bacteria with the high-heat sanitize cycle.
  • Steam settings on the Dryer help to relax and prevent stubborn wrinkles , refresh clothes and reduce static. Learn more about our Maytag® laundry options here at this link.

Elkay dusk gray undermount sink on Cambria Summerhill quartz. | VillageHomeStores.comThe “Summerhill” Cambria quartz design is the perfect compliment to each of the painted cabinet finishes. A standard “Eased” edge is used with no quartz backsplash installed. The sink wall of cabinetry includes a large single bowl undermount sink from Elkay. Elkay’s “Dusk Gray” finish mimics the accent glaze of the cabinets as well as the laundry pair and “Graphite” painted cabinets across the room. While a stainless steel or warm brushed nickel finish would look right at home in this space, polished chrome is a bright and stylish choice. The countertops and textured glass tiles are illuminated by our Diode LED lighting system. We love the little reminder system this homeowner has started using with her Diode lighting. If there is laundry running that will need to be changed over to the dryer, all the lights are turned off but the undercabinet lighting remains on. Since these lights are low-voltage, this system is a cost-effective way to remind her as she walks down the hall that there is laundry to check back on. trashThe sink wall of cabinetry that faces a window is fit with great storage solutions. A pull-out double bin waste basket on one end, and sliding shelves on the other. Also concealed within the top drawer of one of these cabinets is an innovative way to store and access your ironing board. Press play below to see this cabinet reveal and unfold to access this fold-away ironing board feature.

laundryIG4Stylish and interesting, the Adorne series of switches and outlets has been placed throughout this new Laundry Room. This unique system is available from our legrand line and has customization options that are almost limitless. Read more about the Adorne series here in a past blog post about the Master Bathroom in this very same home. The finish shown in this space is the “Satin Nickel” wall plate. The perfect choice against the American Olean textured glass tiles. These “Elegant Crystal” tiles in the “Sand” finish measure 4″ x 12″ long and add texture and dimension to the space.

American Olean Elegant Crystal textured glass tile. | VillageHomeStores.comThat same tile is installed on the folding wall of the design. Taking a suggestion from the elongated wall tile shape is a 12″ x 24″ sized tile from our Florstar line on the floors. This series is names “Matrix” and the color is “Azul”. This versatile wall of cabinetry now includes hanging storage, cabinet storage, and a floating drawer area in the center for folding and sorting laundry. Below this counter is space for three rolling laundry carts that can be easily moved from here to the laundry units across the room. folding_counter

Moline, IL- Kitchen Remodel Fully Managed From Start to Finish

This Moline, IL kitchen is a tale that we are sure many can relate to. The original kitchen cabinets were in a very functional layout but beginning to show the wear and tear of years of use. After years and years of “maybe someday I’ll replace them”… this Spring “someday” had finally come. beforeNow the kitchen is updated with new cabinetry plus we removed an entire wall to make room for an island in the new design. The original kitchen shared the same L-shaped layout but the opposite end had a corner of walls with just enough room for a small table and two chairs. Kitchen remodel in Moline, IL managed from start to finish. | VillageHomeStores.com

Now with one of those back walls removed, the kitchen is open and bright. Birch wood Cabinetry from our Koch classic line has been installed in the “Westbrook” door style. A “Chestnut” stain has been applied and a “Black” accent glaze highlights the door and trim details. Engineered Quartz countertops in the “Chakra Beige” design is a neutral tone-on-tone look.

Crown molding on kitchen cabinets. | VillageHomeStores.comThe spindle rail crown has been removed from the original kitchen. The new kitchen look is updated with “cove” crown molding. This crown is the perfect style and scale for the project. It even includes an area for the accent glaze to catch. With plenty of cabinet space within reach on each wall, an area above the cabinets is left to display items.

A white Whirlpool® range and microwave hood are also part of the new kitchen. Microwave hoods can save counterspace and be installed to vent out of the home or re-circulate the air. The original kitchen had just a range hood installed, now the microwave is off the counter.
Whirlpool appliances white finish. | VillageHomeStores.com

The new electric range includes an easy-wipe ceramic glass cooktop. The most dramatic difference in the new kitchen came when we removed a wall that divided the kitchen from the dining room. Removing this one wall has helps this kitchen seem to grow in space even though it hasn’t extended any further into the dining room than before. The small table and chairs is now replaced with a large single-level kitchen island with seating for two comfortably.
Removing a wall in a kitchen can free up so much space! | VillageHomeStores.com

With open shelves installed on each end of the island, the largest base cabinet included faces in toward the kitchen sink. Behind the double doors of this cabinet are two slide-out shelves. The “ends” to each open shelf cabinets have been treated with “applied doors” on each side. This gives the illusion of doors and helps complete the look instead of just a smooth panel. The back of the island includes three applied doors and two wood decorative supports for the overhang.

The island is really the focal point of this new kitchen and the accent glaze highlights all of the details perfectly. While the island steal the show in the kitchen, the new hardwood Walnut flooring is now showcased through the entire upper level of this home. The Walnut hardwood in the “Saddle” finish is from our Hallmark Hardwood line. Read more about Hallmark and some of our other projects here at this link.

Flooring and remodel work in Moline, IL | VillageHomeStores.comThe hardwood flooring was not the only new flooring installed at this remodeled home. The split-foyer layout was given a whole new look right at the stairway leading up into the new hardwood open-concept. A new stair rail and banister were installed and carpeting from our Dixie Home line was put in on both sets of stairs. This carpet is from the “Rock Creek” series in the “Ginger color. It is a 100% Stainmaster® carpet that resists stains, abrasive wear over time, and even has anti-static protection. That means you reduce your chances of static shock. This textured carpet also includes Dixie Home’s texture retention technology meaning your texture/pattern will bounce back and keep it’s hold for a long time. Village Home Stores sells carpeting to both remodel and New Construction customers. So if you need a single room of carpet or a whole home, we have quality products and quality installation crews ready for the job! Village Home Stores is your expert choice of carpeting in the extended Quad Cities region. That is why our projects always include the following:Carpeting in the Quad Cities. | VillageHomeStores.com

This homeowner knew that she wanted to be sure to include our LED undercabinet lighting in her new kitchen. She had seen this system in our previous projects and on our TV show so it was at the top of her wish list for the new kitchen. That lighting was a great investment to help showcase her new subway tile backsplash in the kitchen. 3″ x 6″ glass tiles from our Jeffrey Court line in the “Buff” color are the perfect choice and pair perfectly with the countertops selected. We included the finished space in an episode of the Village Home Show. See a full video tour of this finished kitchen remodel by pressing play below.

All of the permanent areas of the kitchen remain neutral in color and the same space cane now be accessorized in a number of ways without making any major changes.

Geneseo, IL Remodel- Rustic Beech Kitchen

This kitchen remodel was done by a homeowner in Geneseo, IL with design and materials coming from Village Home Stores. The original kitchen included a wall that divided the kitchen from the dining area. With the wall now removed, the new space is full of light and space. Now in place of the wall is a peninsula of cabinetry and countertop that has quickly become a favorite place for visiting grandchildren. main

silestone sierra madre quartz. | VillageHomeStores.comOne of the sure signs that this peninsula is the place to be in this new kitchen is a plate of treats awaiting guests. What grandchild (or visiting Village Home Stores employee) can resist pulling up a stool to chat or help out in this great new space. The countertops selected for this remodel are by Silestone Quartz in “Sierra Madre”. Added piece of mind is that Silestone includes Bacteriostatic Protection  which means silver ions are included in the quartz to prevent the propagation of bacteria.  A perfect added value to this selection since this new peninsula area is ideal for for preparation and serving. Can’t you just picture a “gaggle” or grandchildren all gathered at this top making Christmas cookies? An outlet has been installed at the very end of the peninsula for small appliances or even a laptop or tablet can be plugged in if used as a desk.

With all of those guests and a bright new space to enjoy, these homeowners better stock up on some snacks! There is plenty of places to store them within the pantry zone of the new kitchen design. The wall that is home to the refrigerator is also where you will find a wide pantry cabinet.
Tall kitchen cabinet with shelves. | VillageHomeStores.com

Three adjustable-height sliding trays of storage plus a stationary shelf above that allow full access to the lower section. The trays are a very versatile way to use the space and extend out to allow the user to see everything within. Above is a 24″ deep space for appliances or bulk items. Click play to watch this cabinet and all of the trays in animated form. We love the addition of baskets to the slideout trays! This kitchen was so full of great storage we had to include it on a storage-themed episode of our local TV show. Watch that full episode here to see the full details tour of this great remodel!

Two incredible kitchen remodels both featuring storage solutions perfect for each home. It is amazing how something as basic as adding sliding shelves can help you enjoy and use your kitchen space more. Don’t miss out on the oportunity to fill your cabinets with the best storage potential possible.


Believe it or not this tall pantry cabinet is not the only great pantry storage section in the new kitchen. Just down the wall is a walk-through corner pantry front with a glass-door display cabinet to the right. Corner pantry cabinet in kitchen. | VillageHomeStores.com

Ordered to match the “Seneca Briarwood”  Rustic Beech cabinetry from our Koch Classic line, this front and two panels were used to assemble the corner area. The homeowner even installed a motion-sensitive light on the interior so that when the pantry doors are opened, the lights turn on. After just a few minutes they automatically turn off. Walk-through pantry fronts are fantastic because you can truly customize your shelving behind them any way you would like. Click play to see the pantry!


While we didn’t do any of the install work for this kitchen, we knew the project was in great hands by a VERY skilled carpenter (who has installed countless projects for our customers). Wait until you see some of the extra work that he put into making this kitchen completely customized for them. This display cabinet with mullioned glass doors got an extra custom detail added to the interior shelves.glass cabinet shelvesThe center section of the finished shelves was routed out to accommodate tempered glass inserts. Now the light installed at the top of these cabinets can pass through the glassware AND the shelves completely! Across from the pantry storage zones of the kitchen is the main prep area of of the kitchen. The sink, dishwasher and cooking areas are all found here.sink

The corner of the peninsula includes a lazy susan cabinet to access the entire corner space for storage. Note that there is no center pole in this susan design. Instead, a fixed center shelf has a susan resting directly on it. The base cabinet to the right of this susan is a space designed for storing baking sheets and cutting boards. Instead of the expected metal or wood center divider, a slide-out tray is installed. Because the walls of this tray are tall, nothing will tumble out  when you pull one from the cabinet.slideing tray divider cabinet. | VillageHomeStores.com

Many times we are even installing more than one. The double-bin option allows you to sort recycling at the time you are cleaning up. At the very end of the peninsula area is wide stack of drawers. The top section has been ordered with two top drawers in place of one wide drawer.two top drawers in cabinet. | VillageHomeStores,com

Wood silverware dividers have been added to the right top drawer. Deep drawers below offer a lot of extra storage. Many items are now available right within reach of this great new prep space. The tile backsplash in this kitchen is a subway tile in an “Almond” color by Daltile. The mosaic insert is called “Rocky Beach” by Glazzio. offwhite subway tiles. | VillageHomeStores.com

The field tile is bright and the mosaic is the perfect blend of colors that can be found throughout the new kitchen. Our Diode LED undercabinet lighting helps showcase this tile. The main sink wall of the new kitchen includes a new Whilrpool range and microwave hood. This range is a front-control electric range with convection oven. We love how the front-control design allows for a smooth and sleek area where the range meets the backsplash. Whirlpool front control stove. | VillageHomeStores.com

This Whirlpool unit comes with the new Frozen Bake™ feature. Read more about this timesaving feature on this past blog post. Above this range is a combination microwave hood also from Whirlpool. With 400 CFMs and 2.0 cu. ft. of interior capacity it is a great choice! The surrounding cabinet design is eye-catching from all entrances into the new kitchen. Whirlpool microwave hood combination. | VillageHomeStores.comFluted details on either side of the hood are the perfect place to catch the “Black” accent glaze that has been applied to these cabinets. This accent glaze is also a great way to help allow the design to combine Stainless Steel appliances with Oil-Rubbed Bronze cabinet hardware. The accent glaze highlights the door details and even the rustic knots found in the wood. The dark finish of the hardware is right at home with this combination. Dark Hickory flooring adds extra drama to the overall look.hickory hardwood dark finish. | VillageHomeStores,com

This Hickory hardwood floor from our Hallmark Flooring line is stunning in person. The dark contrast to the cabinets looks rich and the “Sagebrush” finish is perfectly at home with the accented Rustic Beech cabinets. One of our favorite parts of the new kitchen isn’t even a cabinet! We must also point out the handwork by this homeowner in this chalkboard area he created.

custom chalkboard. | VillageHomeStores.comHe used just a few pieces of Rustic Beech trim to create a custom magnetic chalkboard area on the refrigerator wall. The lower section of molding even can hold a piece of chalk. What a great way to “extend” the cabinetry finish into a functional piece right between the kitchen and the dining areas.

Geneseo Remodel: A Clean And Classic Look

headerThis Geneseo kitchen remodel has one of the best marble looks we have ever featured…. but these tops are Formica! Paired with painted cabinetry, this project was a great before and after story to share on our TV show. Watch a full episode of the Village Home Show including this Before & After story as well as a trip to our granite fabrication shop. Click the video below to see the full tour.

It is no secret that there is nothing more classic and timeless these days than a white painted kitchen. White painted cabinetry has been a universally popular choice for many years and will not be dropping in popularity within the next handful of years. There is something about having a white kitchen that gives it a clean and classic look. This newly remodeled kitchen in Geneseo, IL is no exception.white painted kitchen | VillageHomeStores.com

White painted cabinetry from our Koch Classic line has been installed in the “Prairie Shaker” door. While there were no walls removed to create this finished space, we did have Durian Builders remove a ceiling soffit to help open up the space for extra cabinetry storage.
kitchen_before

The original gold-flecked backsplash tile had been removed before we snapped this “before” photo. Even though the original kitchen was also white, it was in need of an upgrade. No changes were made to the general “footprint” of the new kitchen but new materials bring a great updated look to the space.

The clean and classic cabinetry is complimented by a subtle contrast in color in the Rittenhouse  3″ x 6″ subway tile that is picked up in the veining colors of the marble countertops….but these tops aren’t true marble! Don’t feel bad if these photos fooled you and you thought they were real (even in person this is easy to do).
Formica Calacatta Marble Laminate | VillageHomeStores.com

The countertops are a fraction of the cost of true marble because they are a Formica laminate color called “Calacatta Marble” Formica’s advancements in printing larger prints onto their sheetgoods helps create a very realistic look. The original kitchen countertops had what is called a “Squared” edge profile. This means that you have two visible seams of material right on the front edge of the counters. Installing these new Formica tops in the “Full-Wrap” edge profile helps to give a more convincing look of a slab of marble.

A drop-in sink and single-handle faucet complete the look. This E-Granite composite sink is durable and very stylish. With five colors to select from and available in drop-in or under-mount styles, there is an E-Granite sink that is perfect for every counter choice.
egranite_sinkWhite appliances are right at home in this kitchen. By not using Black or Stainless Steel appliances in this design, the U-shaped kitchen looks even larger and brighter. Installing a microwave hood above your cooktop helps free up counter space in the kitchen.

New flooring has been installed throughout this kitchen and eat-in dining area. This “American Classic Plank” in the “Gunstock” color may look like hardwood… but it is in fact Luxury Vinyl Tile Planks. LVT flooring can be a wonderful choice for your kitchen because it far more comfortable to stand on for long periods of time when compared to ceramic tile or hardwoods. Read more about LVT  here in this past blog post.

This kitchen is full of wonderful storage! Drawers are full-extension, self-closing drawers and the interiors of the cabinets have been fitted with sliding shelves. Even the tall pantry cabinet has sliding shelves inside.

This kitchen doesn’t just have one tall pantry cabinet. There is another located across the kitchen in the desk area. If two pantry cabinets aren’t enough storage there is always the bonus storage found in this large 45″ wide wall cabinet above the desk.

The Formica tops and subway tile backsplash would not look as stunning if it weren’t for the great light that washes over them. Our Diode L.E.D. lighting system has been installed here for undercabinet lighting. These lights are energy efficient and help any kitchen look amazing day or night.

While many older and historic homes may not have this large of a kitchen, we can make any space look just as classic. In this case, the home had been remodeled many years ago to create a larger kitchen. This new U-shaped layout with a built-in desk area and secondary dining space (formal dining room is just outside the door) this kitchen is fantastic and functional.

Bettendorf Remodel: So… What’s Your Angle?

Does your kitchen have a unique shape to the overall space? A not-so-square corner or an unused section of wall that you know could be part of your new kitchen? It is time to call in the the expert design team at Village Home Stores. We can make any standard shaped room look incredible and we can do exactly the same for “challenging” spaces. Not only did we address every angle, we included great storage within. See this kitchen featured in this episode of the Village Home Show in the video below.

The total transformation was amazing to share with you on our TV show. We hope you enjoy the more detailed tours and product features we can show you in this video format. before_photo

Not all homes include a rectangle or perfectly square space to work with.  For example, take a look at a birdseye view of the design for this featured kitchen. Kitchen Designer Quad CitiesNo, this image is not tilted, the kitchen in this beautiful Bettendorf home is in fact that shape. Not your typical U-shaped kitchen is it? If you are shopping for a single straight wall of cabinetry or a custom kitchen to fit a space like this. An expert is what you need. The expert design team at Village Home Stores can help you find the best working design for your home. No project is identical to another (we love this about our industry)! The new design you see here on the right is a solution for the space. The old kitchen layout was much more broken up. The original oak kitchen (shown above and below) included drop-down ceiling soffits as well as a narrow corridor on the back end of the kitchen created by tall cabinetry. Behind the original refrigerator location was a second refrigerator, open shelf storage and a small pass-through window. The entire space seemed crowded and closed in.before

A very special area in the original kitchen was also in this back section of the original layout, the measuring wall. Many families have them, commonly in the kitchen. Where the growth of generations and generations of kids is documented. In this case it was on the side panel o a tall cabinet. A grandchild put up some signage on the day before tear-out was to begin…memories

She means it!!!! No worries reader, our carpenters were able to remove this panel (from the floor up for accurate measuring of course) and it is now safely in a new location of the home. Our family here at Village Home Stores know how important memories made in your home are to you. We aim to provide beautiful and functional new spaces to help you continue making memories in your home. The moment we snapped this photo of the measuring wall. was a touching reminder of that. And now…the tour! Let’s take a look around this incredible new space!white painted kitchen with subway tile.

The first thing you notice about this new kitchen is how open and bright it is. What was once an enclosed maze of cabinetry has been opened up into a bright and airy Transitional kitchen. Koch cabinetry in the “aspen” doorstyle painted white is paired with warm Hickory hardwood flooring. The countertops in this new space are a striking natural stone named “White Macaubus”. This neutral blend of whites, beige, and warm grays perfectly ties all of the other finishes together. Natural veining and character in the slabs looks right at home in this wooded lot that looks out over the Mississippi Valley below. We removed a large section of the dividing wall to help create this look. kitchen remodeler Quad Cities

Now you have a clear view into the kitchen and its full wall of floor-to-ceiling glass that looks out toward the swimming pool. The kitchen sink view is also more enjoyable now as the user faces the front of this wooded lot and can enjoy the entire panoramic view the Living Room windows offer. What grabs your attention first as you enter the new kitchen is the large handcrafted Hickory dining table and the lighting above it.painted white kitchen by Village Home Stores

This table (built by the talented homeowner we should add) comfortably seats 10 guests. While an island of a very decent size could have fit here, the owners really wanted to be able to enjoy the space and the views while dining and entertaining. So many incredible meals and many great conversations will now be shared within this kitchen. The two large pendant light fixtures above the table make quite the statement…kitchen lighting

…and when you sit down and look up, they make a whole new statement! Hammered copper with a gold interior, these lights are stunning! While your kitchen may not be large enough for two lights quite this size, consider the rhythm and balance that is brought to the space by having two lights above the table (or island if that is the case). A single, long fixture would have not been as dramatic as these lights.

unique lighting

The added surprise of the gold interior of these fixtures is what makes them so remarkable. We have many lighting options similar to these including the series shown above by Quorum that come in many sizes and with gold, silver, and copper interior options. White painted kitchenThe back wall of the kitchen is now home to the new KitchenAid 29 cubic foot french-door refrigerator. KitchenAid beverage coolerThis model offers maximum fresh food and freezer storage. The addition of a glass-front beverage cooler nearby helps free up a lot of shelf space in the main refrigerator. If your kitchen design allows it, this 24″ appliance can really be a game-changer for refrigeration. Imagine if the next time your were planning on entertaining, you could remove all of the cans, bottles, and boxes of beverages and instead have all of that shelf space for food items! That is a lot of shelf real estate that just opened up for you. It is also very wonderful to be able to allow guests to help themselves when they are over. A glass-front beverage cooler looks great and can also help way-finding when you are entertaining guests. We carry many makes and models of under-counter beverage coolers.broom closet in cabinetry

On the subject of added storage, take a look at this second pantry cabinet that was converted into a broom/utility closet. Adding a tall pantry cabinet for this function can help you have access to cleaning supplies right where you need them. With doors closed, you would never suspect it isn’t just pantry storage.

With the angle of the cooking and sink walls being an acute angle, a standard square lazy-susan cabinet would not fit or function for this kitchen. A blind corner cabinet with swing-out shelves is instead installed to make the most of a challenging area. When we asked the owner of this beautiful new kitchen what some of her favorite things about the new space were, she responded how much she loves her touch-activated faucet. touch faucet in kitchen

When working in the kitchen it is so easy to fall in love with this touch feature. This kitchen was completed using the full Project Management Program at Village Home Stores. This means that the entire remodel was handled from start to finish by a team of experts coordinated just for this project. Estimates, schedules, and quality work was all managed by Village Home Stores to help keep everything on schedule to completion. There is so much to talk about in this Bettendorf kitchen. We can’t wait to share a full video tour with you on an upcoming episode of the Village Home Show. This will be an episode you will not want to miss!Bettendorf kitchen remodel from Village Home Stores

Village Home Show Episode 7 | Bathrooms

Episode7On this episode of the Village Home Show we tour two Quad City Area bathrooms. Each Master Bathroom has been remodeled to include beautiful new materials and bright open spaces. Click right here below to watch this full episode and see the entire before & after stories of these bathrooms.

The first bathroom we look at in this episode had a ton of space already. The homeowners were right in knowing that just a few changes could really make the space work even better for them. A warm, neutral selection of materials paired with a traditional style creates a stunning space in this Bettendorf, IA home.Village Home Show Episode 7 | Bathrooms

An arched area that has a custom fit cherry bench seat where an existing jacuzzi tub was removed. A matching wood top gives the homeowners extra storage space and keeps the area open. Above the bench you will note an arched valance that compliments the other arches throughout the home.Village Home Show Episode 7 | Bathrooms

Our carpenters worked with the homeowners to maintain the arch look with a template, so each had the same look. This is a great look and you will notice both bathrooms we feature in this episode have arched areas with a light fixture as a focal point. Another common theme from one bathroom to the next is heated tile flooring and two of the most gorgeous custom tiled showers in the Quad Cities! See the full album of photos from this bathroom over here on our Houzz page.

Village Home Show Episode 7 | BathroomsThe second Master Bath we tour uses cooler colors of materials. This original bathroom had a very large layout with lots of great natural light. The homeowners were looking for ways to make better use of their space. The entire bathroom was demo-ed including the master bedroom attached to the bath.  A beautiful Crystorama chandelier hangs above the tub.

Village Home Show Episode 7 | BathroomsThe shower goes into the same location but there is an addition of a bench seat, custom wall shelf, and new shower head and control system. Mosaic tile accents the new shower and is repeated as a bold statement filling each of the vanity walls. See this bathroom featured here on our blog and the full album of photos to inspire your project here on Houzz.com.

Taylor Ridge Remodel: Traditional Style in a Rustic Setting

Taylor Ridge Kitchen remodel by Village Home StoresLike so many of our most successful kitchen transformation stories, this one includes the removal of a wall to open up the existing kitchen space to create a more open concept for the home. We loved this remodel project so much that we featured this kitchen on an episode of the Village Home Show. Also included in this episode is a tour of the adjacent bathroom that includes a Laundry area on the main floor. Main kitchen remodel by Village Home Stores

Living through a complete kitchen remodel can be quite a process. Kitchen remodels are so rewarding once complete, but they do take some time. Great kitchen transformations like this don’t happen overnight. Watch this episode of the Village Home Show and see how this space was transformed from start to finish.

As you saw in the video above, much of the work done to this kitchen happened before any of the new cabinetry was installed. Just look at this wall that was in the way of the original space:Before and after remodel iin Taylor Ridge by Village Home Stores

By removing that wall the new kitchen is now a part of the front living room and natural light can pour in from all directions. This pair of Taylor Ridge newlyweds were not just challenged with the space restrictions of the existing kitchen, they also had a mix of personal styles that they wanted to be addressed. Located up on the sweeping hills of Taylor Ridge, the couple wanted to be sure to nod to the rustic setting even though their personal tastes were more timeless and Traditional.

Kitchen remodel with island by Village Home Stores

Their designer from Village Home Stores was excited to get to work on finding them the perfect selection or materials to give the right finished look to the space. Of course the look and feel of the new kitchen is only a fraction of what makes it a well-designed kitchen. The function of the design is most important, especially in your kitchen. Let’s start by looking at the layout of the new design.Design rendering by Village Home Stores

In the case of this kitchen, spreading out into the new space and adding areas for prep, storage and entertaining were key. A large island in the center of the design checks off all of these boxes. Even with the new large island in place, there is still plenty of room for a full dining room table on the opposite end of the room. Kitchen island by Village Home Stores

A single level island was designed with adequate seating space for four (plus plenty of leaning up to and chatting space for many more). The island includes storage accessible from three sides and decorative paneling and trim all around it to give the look of a large furniture piece. This leaves the view seen buy guests Traditional and stylish from every angle.Appliances by Village Home Stores

The island side facing the kitchen user includes the dishwasher and built-in microwave drawer. The entire package of kitchen appliances is from Village Home Stores and includes a 29 cu. ft. refrigerator and double oven gas range from KitchenAid. A Sharp microwave drawer, and Broan hood insert have also been installed. With the dishwasher and microwave facing the sink and a wood hood in place of a stainless unit, there is less Stainless Steel in the overall first impression. This keeps the look updated but Traditional without having to invest in panel-ready appliances. Outlets in island by Village Home Stores

With an island this large you will want to use it for many tasks. An outlet is camouflaged discretely on the end facing the cooking wall of the kitchen.  Now small appliances can be used for prep and entertaining.
Cabinet end panel by Village Home Stores

Moving the refrigerator to the opposite wall helps to keep all of the main kitchen appliances in one zone of the kitchen.  The large kitchen island is located right in front of the refrigerator to provides plenty of space for loading and unloading items. With the largest appliance to the left of the sink, that frees up the entire other wall for a chance to create a dramatic look for the new kitchen. two-tone kitchen by Village Home Stores

Above the new double oven gas range is a wood hood with decorative corbels. Framed in by lighted glass-door cabinets on either side, this wall is the focal point of the entire room. Walking in the front door your eyes lock on this area right away! The main tile throughout this kitchen is glass subway tile appropriately named “Truffle” by Ann Sacks. The mosaic inset above the range is is from Epic Stone. This mosaic perfectly combines the colors of the field tile, Cambria Quartz countertops, and wall cabinetry. scrolled corbells by Village Home Stores

This scrolled corbel style helps anchor a Traditional style to the overall look. The painted “Pearl” finish on Koch’s “Royale” doorstyle has been accented with an “Umber” glaze perfectly showcased here on the corbels. You may have noticed the contrasting island of this kitchen but did you notice the other bold contrast of this look …?dark base lower and light upper cabinets by Village Home Stores

The base cabinetry of this entire kitchen is a rich “Mocha” stain while all of the upper cabinetry and refrigerator surround is in the “Pearl” painted finish. This may be a bold concept to hear described to you but look at it in action here! The upper cabinets seem to almost “float” above and give the whole room a larger feel. This contrasting concept can be executed for all styles from Contemporary to Old World.spice cabinent by Village Home Stores

A pullout spice rack is accessible just to the right of the double oven gas range. these spice cabinets are available for both base units and wall units.

Just to the right of this wall is the hallway that is now easily accessible from the open kitchen, dining, and living room. Sliding barn door in kitchen remodel by Village Home Stores

A handcrafted custom barnwood door by Character Interiors has been installed on sliding hardware that includes a lock on the interior. Behind this barndoor is a large double vanity bathroom with a tub shower and front-load laundry from Maytag. In the episode posted above in this post we give a full tour of this new bathroom space. Across the way, an unused corner of the original kitchen has now been given a brand new look.

hutch before and after remodel by Village Home Stores

This built-in hutch cabinet helps extend the kitchen cabinetry into the dining space and give a customized look. The lighted top section of the wall cabinet provides a fantastic ambient light source and a space for displaying items. wood countertop by Village Home Stores

A custom wood top has been installed in the same finish as the island and base cabinetry from the main kitchen. This helps tie the rich “Mocha” stain into the hutch area but keeps the entire section looking like a Traditional sideboard cabinet. Our Diode LED undercabinet system is installed underneath the painted cabinetry and inside of the glass-front wall cabinets. With a dimmer switch function added, these efficient lights can be used all day every day no matter what the mood is. cage light by Village Home Stores

There are two other great lighting zones in this gorgeous new space. This Dining 4-light chandelier is from our Golden line. Exposed bulbs in clear glass caged in a dark finish keeps the light from seeming to large. You can see through it into the new kitchen and pendents just beyond it. pendant lighting by Village Home Stores

These 3 pendant fixtures are from our Minka-Lavery line. Hanging pendants above an island can be done in so many ways. we love the look here of a cluster of lights hung at varied heights. The visible filament of the “Edison” style bulbs and varied heights here help lend a more whimsical feel and add rustic Old World charm.sink remodel before and after by Village Home Stores

Timeless and classic, but with a nod to the rustic setting of this countryside Taylor Ridge home. This kitchen turned out gorgeous! See the full album of photos from this project over here on our Houzz.com portfolio.
