This kitchen remodel feature brings us to a home in Morrison, IL where a new kitchen was part of a major remodel overhaul to the home. A room addition on the back end of the home and this new open kitchen layout have helped to create a new flow to the spaces. We also installed new flooring, lighting, and remodeled a hall bathroom during the process. We love a two tone kitchen design and for this kitchen, we combined two finishes AND two of our cabinet lines to get the perfect look for this household.
The kitchen perimeter cabinetry comes from our Dura Supreme line. The doorstyle is named “Highland” and has been painted in the “Moonstone” finish. The accent finished wood hood, island, and pantry wall are all from our Koch Classic line of cabinetry. The “Prairie” door is the perfect compliment to the perimeter cabinetry. These accent items are in a Hickory wood stained a warm gray “Stone” finish. If you are looking for a great wood stain that compliments many tones of grays out there, ask to see a sample of this finish on all wood species. We even two toned the countertop surfaces in this kitchen. The kitchen island is a statement Cambria Quartz surface named “Langdon” and the solid-colored perimeter quartz is the “Manchester” design.
The glass door cabinets were given a two tone look by ordering contrasting interior shelves. Including glass door cabinets in your design is a great way to add interest and offer display areas keeping the items contained and uncluttered. We always suggest to include our Diode LED tape lighting on the interior of glass cabinets. This really creates a stunning display space and the cabinets can also be used as an ambient light source day and night. We also installed this bestselling LED system for the undercabinet lighting in the new kitchen.
Of course there is plenty of great storage throughout the new kitchen design. Starting with this wall cabinet extension capping off the end of the sink wall. We love using this style of a drawered wall cabinet in bathroom designs to separate the two bowl areas. Of course this is a great kitchen cabinet as well! Think of how many uses you could have for these long and shallow drawers to keep clutter off your counters.
The corner of a kitchen design is always an opportunity to maximize storage when possible. Here we installed an angled front wall cabinet and base cabinet. This shape of a corner base cabinet allows you to gain a deeper and more accessible corner countertop surface. Inside of this base cabinet is a wooden lazy susan tray on two shelves. This sturdy design replaces the pole lazy susans of the past. Ask your kitchen designer at Village Home Stores to see all of your cabinet options for a corner in your own kitchen design.
This kitchen design must have been “written in the cosmos” because ironically the cabinet finish and the tile share the same “Moonstone” name! An elongated beveled wall tile from our Glazzio line in the Gemstone 3″ x 12″ series and “Grey Moonstone” color. The added bevel details adds interest, shadow, and texture without introducing another color to the tile. An accent tile area has been installed above the cooktop in a mosaic of Elongated Hex tiles in the “Silhouette” colorway from our Jeffrey Court line.
The appliances in this kitchen are from our dependable and strong Maytag line. Shown above is a front-control electric range with True Convection features. Curious what “convection” means or what type is right for you? Check out this short segment from our TV show where we unpack all that info for you. Don’t forget that we offer appliance sales and service to a large area and you can get a fair price while supporting our small business with your appliance purchases.

The accented “Stone” stained cabinets in this kitchen include a wood hood, the kitchen island, and the cabinetry surrounding the refrigerator. Wood hood cabinets can truly elevate your kitchen design. We love the customized look they give. Not sure what to put inside of it? Don’t worry! Our team will help you select the correct style and power for an insert for these cabinets. A counter-depth french door refrigerator is surrounded in this kitchen by tall pantry cabinets. Just look at all of that great storage! These two tall cabinets plus a deep cabinet above can honestly store as much (perhaps more?) than a walk-in pantry can.
To the left of the pantry and refrigerator area is a small landing space. We installed a wall outlet from our Radiant series that includes USB plugins. This makes it a great place for charging devices, sorting mail, keys, and papers in the cabinets above and below. Just around the corner from the new kitchen is an entirely new room in the home. A stunning new spacious four seasons space with a statement ceiling. A 65″ wide farmhouse inspired fan named “Gentry” looks perfect in the space in the “Anvil Iron” finish.
Don’t forget that our expert start to finish kitchen remodel team is also your expert start to finish bathroom remodel team. In this home a hall bathroom has been transformed to now become a stylish new space. Fit with a single sink vanity, framed mirror, and toilet topper cabinet. The same Hickory “Stone” cabinetry from our Koch Cabinetry line is used and we love seeing it paired with this rich mosaic tile in a variety of colors.
The Cambria Quartz vanity top is one of our favorite parts of the entire project! Look at how stunning this Skara Brae surface is! Cambria is a wonderful choice for a bathroom vanity top. It is extremely durable, resistant to the heat of hair care appliances, and wipes clean with just soap and water or any mild cleaner. Nothing spilled on the surface will be absorbed into that gorgeous pattern or cause a stain. With any natural or engineered stone surface in a bathroom we are also able to undermount a sink to the slab of surface. This makes cleanup even more simple and keeps the look clean.

If you are looking at tiling a custom shower with Village Home Stores, then be sure to check out this ideabook also on our Houzz page that showcases many showers we have installed in the Quad Cities region. It is a great place to get inspiration for tiled shower entrances, drains, door systems, shelves, niches, and benches. Our team can help you transform an area of your bathroom into the custom shower retreat you deserve. In this bathroom we tiled a large area and included grab bars and a hinged glass shower door.

Our showroom is open Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm and Saturdays from 9am-noon or by appointment.
This week’s project feature is a new home that was just completed in Geneseo, IL built by Bob Johnson Construction. We love the classic look of a white painted kitchen cabinet. The kitchen in this home includes our Koch Classic Cabinetry line in the Prairie doorstyle and painted “White” finish on the perimeter. The kitchen island is installed in the same doorstyle but finished in a gray paint color named “Fog”. The kitchen cabinetry stretches all the way to the ceiling and leaves just enough space for a stylish stacked crown molding to be applied.
The Stainless Steel appliance package from Whirlpool is packed with great features. The cooking wall includes a front control gas range with convection and a microwave hood above it. The convection oven has a “Rapid Preheat” feature that uses all of the elements and a rear fan to preheat the oven 20% faster. This new front-control range design gives you a sleek and custom look without needing a special size or opening. Fitting in any standard 30″ wide opening, you can replace your existing electric or gas range with this look that removes the tall control area on the back wall. Now your entire backsplash can show off.
And speaking of backsplashes, check out this fun take on the Subway tile look: elongated tiles! These 3″ x 12″ tiles are from our Midwest Tile line in the New Yorker series and “Bright White” color. The cooktop on this Whirlpool range has an oval shaped 5th burner at the center making it perfect for griddles and large cookware. Cleanup of the cooktop is so easy with the EZ-2-Lift™ hinged cast-iron grates. The hinged design allows you to wipe up under them without removing them entirely. Shop this range and more great Whirlpool appliances at our Local low Price Guaranteed here on our website.
The refrigerator wall of the kitchen design includes a fingerprint-resistant finish Stainless Steel refrigerator. This builder was able to include a planned niche space in the wall to recess the refrigerator and allow the customer to purchase a standard, full-depth model. Not every kitchen design demands the flush style of a counter-depth model, but every design certainly looks cleaner with it.
Curious about how the depth of your refrigerator may change the look of your kitchen design? Check out this ideabook on our houzz page that is a collection of full-depth and counter-depth models installed in completed kitchens. We love the shallow landing space that was created on the right side of the refrigerator. This narrow cabinet area helps to give the refrigerator wall a built in look and provides a great landing space for mail, keys, and phones. This kitchen opens up to a dining space as well as a living room.
The dining table just off of the kitchen can comfortably seat a large crowd for a meal, but the island also has seating which can be a great casual place to grab a seat. Counter-height seating continues to be the trend for kitchen island designs. Bar heights can be uncomfortable for longer periods of time and difficult to use for families with small children. With the kitchen sink at the center of the island top, the overhang end can become a wonderful and large work surface when needed. Many of our clients work from home and prefer the option of a desk area in the heart of the home. Gone are the days of having that kitchen desk facing a wall. In this design you can plug a laptop or tablet right into the end of the island and soak in all this amazing sunlight and open space.
When you build a new home there are so many decisions to be made and products to be selected. It can be very overwhelming to take on every choice and checklist yourself. That is why we have a full team that can assemble for you with experts from each department in our store. Village Home Stores truly is your one stop shop for new home and remodeling customers. In this home we provided cabinetry, countertops, flooring, wall tile, lighting, window treatments, and appliances.
The lighting selected for the great room kitchen, dining space, and front entry are all from our Kichler line. The seedy glass adds a fun texture and keeps the overall look light and bright. We supplied lighting for inside and outside of this Geneseo home. If you are in need of a single light for your home or an entire new home of lighting, our experts can help you select the lights perfect for your style, size of space, and budget. Shop our lighting online anytime here at villagehomestores.com.
We also installed window shades and blinds throughout this new home. Our custom window shades and blinds department has really become a great option for our customers. We have competitive prices, amazing selections, and our own expert installers to help you get the stylish look and privacy you need for your home. Contact us today for a quote. The main flooring surface in the foyer, great room, dining room, kitchen, hallway, pantry, laundry room, and office are all a luxury vinyl plank.
This is the Lux Haus II series from our Triumph line and the color is “Belvoir”. This vinyl flooring product is amazing because it is waterproof, pet-friendly, scratch-resistant, and can be installed above an existing floor. The planks are cork-backed which means that it helps to insulate your floors and reduce noises. This product comes in a variety of wood looks and finishes. Like most new home plans we see, the laundry room is right within reach of the main hub of the home.
In this laundry we installed our Koch Express line in the Camden door and same “Fog” paint used as an accent cabinet in the nearby kitchen. A front-load Maytag laundry pair is ready to tackle the toughest loads of laundry. The most powerful cleaning in the industry with great features like quick wash and sanitize cycles. It also has a 16 Hr Fresh Hold® Option that keeps clean clothes smelling fresh in the washer with an internal fan and intermittent tumbling that circulate air through clothes for up to 16 hours after the wash cycle ends. The guest bathroom vanity (shown below) is the same style as the laundry cabinets. A stylish and seamless double vanity top from our Onyx Collection line is in the “Dove” color.
In the master bathroom we returned to the same cabinet door and finish from the kitchen. A tall linen cabinet offers up a lot of great storage and a separation between the sinks. The vanity tops in this bathroom are also from our Onyx Collection line. This time in the “Cloud” color with a matching walk-in shower system in the same product.
Curious about a molded shower product for your bathroom? Check out this Onyx Collection cultured marble shower with custom wall panels, trim, shelves, corner seat, and window frame! This product is very easy to clean and looks great! Here we includes a low profile curb base on the custom shower pan. Shown in this Quad Cities area home in the Cloud gloss finish with no shower door application. Contact the bathroom design experts at Village Home Stores for a bid on this product made in the USA.

This kitchen in East Moline, IL has a whole new look and layout. We removed a dividing wall to make room for more natural light and an island design with counter-height seating. Warm, Rustic Beech Koch Cabinetry in the Seneca door and Briarwood stain has been accented with a Black glaze. The mixed metals of copper, Oil-Rubbed Bronze and Black Stainless look amazing. Plus check out the bright statement with that island accent lighting (more on that later)! We absolutely love how this kitchen turned out.
The original kitchen was very nice, but the layout of the cabinetry was awkward and secluded from the front room. This made it a great candidate for a wall removal remodel. Not every kitchen we remodel needs a wall removed to be incredible. In this home however, having the entire space open now seems like that is what the layout should have been all along. In this kitchen we removed a wall and soffit during the remodel process to achieve that open concept. Take a look at the original soffits and dividing wall between the living room and kitchen shown in the before photo below.
What is The Village Process Like?
If you are looking to remodel your kitchen anytime soon you are in the right place! This blog can be such a useful place to find inspiration and help qualify your own likes and dislikes. We hope that Village Home Stores can be a part of your research process AND your remodel process. Are you just seeking products and ideas and to do the remodel work yourself? That’s great! Village Home Stores can provide you with an expertly prepared design and quality materials for you to DIY to your hearts content. But if you don’t have the time or skill to do that, our start-to-finish Project Management process may be the perfect fit for your timeline and your budget. What do we mean when we say our remodel customers can have us manage their job from “start-to-finish” ? It means that from the very first time you message us online or stop by, we are working for you and with you to get you into your finished space. No matter who is doing the remodel work, your first step is the same: just reach out to our team to schedule a Complementary Consultation.
We schedule these consultations in our showroom before visiting your home so that you can get a better understanding of everything we offer and we are able to walk you through our estimating phases. Most people will only remodel a kitchen or bathroom in a home once or twice in a lifetime. It can be overwhelming to know where to start and what happens next. The great news is that we do this all the time! We are here to help walk you through our process and keep you on track and on budget. We want to help you to enjoy this process as much as possible. During this Consultation we will answer your questions and walk you through when you can expect to see your designs and estimates during our phases and discuss our payment options. We will also ask you some questions about the project, your goals, your budget, and who will be doing the work. There is a reason why budget conversations happen well before we begin estimating the project. This is to help us all stay on task and on track when designing your new space. After this Consultation, we will schedule a date for a Jobsite Visit in your home to gather information for us to begin the design phase.
Sometimes Our Biggest Skeptics Become Our Best Cheerleaders
Do you read every detail of a menu item before ordering at a restaurant? Do you answer “of course” when asked if you want your receipt? Did you already take general dimensions of your kitchen layout for us… on graph paper… and use a ruler? Do you have an engineering degree? Does your Summer Vacation this year have a customized itinerary? Have you started a spreadsheet for your remodel project already in Excel or Google Docs? If you answered yes to any of those questions then wow! You love the details and you respect the process! And guess what? You are going to be a HUGE fan of the Village Home Stores remodel process. We love the look on this type of customer’s face when we present our process checklists and walk them through our current and local budget data for projects like theirs. Some of our most appreciative start-to-finish customers are people who could have even done some of the work themselves. But who has the time or energy? We do!
Let Us Get To Work For You
There is a lot to be done before you can enjoy your new space and gathering estimates is a big part of that. The truth is there are 3 and a half pages of phases and checklists before we even reach the phrase “Jobsite binder is delivered and job begins” in our process. There are 9 phases of our process and 7 of those happen before we begin demo. We won’t reveal every phase in detail here but we can summarize them a bit. After that Complimentary Consultation in our showroom we will come out to your home to gather information. Then we will get to work preparing a design to be presented to you. Our goal is to ask enough qualifying questions ahead of the design phase that we can present to you initial designs that are successful. We will next discuss any changes needed to the design and begin making product selections in the showroom. During this Design Presentation meeting in the showroom we will also have you meet with other Village team members in any departments you may need products from. During this meeting we will document you selections and help guide you based on our budget conversations. You will also be given private login information at this meeting so that you can begin to access your design, estimates, and eventually contracts and schedules moving forward. Once all of the work to be done is documented by our team, and we have a clear design concept, we can schedule a Contractor Meeting at your home.
All of the subcontractors we anticipate needing for your project will meet your village designer and our project estimator in your home. All together at the same time. Sounds like an obvious need right? But you would be surprised how rare this is in our industry. At Village Home Stores we believe it is a key element to a successful estimating and end result for all parties involved. Here we can clarify what work is to be completed and included in estimates and allow the subs to have some dialog about the work to be done.
Our start-to-finish Project Management program at Village Home Stores changes and adapts with every project. We have also worked hard to curate a list of reliable, respectful subcontractors who can do quality work for you at a fair price. It has taken some time to get there, but we truly believe we can now say with confidence that our in-house and subcontractor staff are the very best you can ask to work in your home. We are so thankful to continue to get compliments on our staff and the subcontractors we send to our clients’ homes.
What Will An Estimate Include?
But we haven’t mentioned an actual bid or pricing yet? That’s right! We have agreed on a design, selected materials with our experts and your budget in mind, and have detailed estimates for the work to be done and now we can present you an estimate. You will receive a complete estimate along with a detailed inclusion sheet of the work included in that estimate. This estimate will be as accurate as possible before work begins. Of course there can be unforeseeable issues to come up any time you remodel a home. Rest assured that we have a process for that as well. Our crews are used to working together and communicating with you and each other to come up with solutions when problems come up. During your project our team stay customer-focused and solution-focused if issues arise.
Enough about our process! Let us show you around this incredible new kitchen in East Moline, IL. What a warm and open space! This new cabinet layout is packed with great storage and details. Glazzio glass wall tiles in two sizes with an accent listel in an Oil Rubbed Bronze finish cover the kitchen walls. A L-shaped layout with large center island includes plenty of walkway space between the surfaces now that the kitchen wall has been removed. We also removed that kitchen soffit and reworked the ceiling to better compliment the rest of the open areas of the home. The new design truly suits the home perfectly!
With a new flow to the entire space, flooring needed to be a new consistent surface throughout. Once again we are sharing a kitchen with our best-selling COREtec Luxury Vinyl Plank floors here on the blog. Sorry to sound like a broken record repeating itself but this COREtec Plus HD series is extremely durable and waterproof. It has the look and texture of a rustic wood surface. The Barnwood Rustic Pine selected for this kitchen is a great choice to pull from the cabinet stain and accent glaze. We just had two new racks of samples delivered for this product so if you are considering a new flooring surface for your home please come see your options. But can we take a moment please and talk about this lighted island!?!?!
This customer chose to install their Cambria Quartz in the Berkley design in a double-thick edge profile on the island. WOW! When they made that accent choice, the homeowner thought that accenting it even more with some lighting could make for a very cool effect. He was right! The look is pretty stunning day and night. This low-profile low-voltage tape light can be installed in a lot of fun ways. Because it is low-voltage, this island accent light can become the perfect nightlight or glow in the evening while watching TV or spending time out on the wrap-around deck.
The same Diode tape light is also installed underneath and above the kitchen perimeter cabinetry. We even concealed something else underneath the cabinets to keep the look clean. All of the kitchen switches and outlets are located in the recessed area under the wall cabinetry. This keeps the wall tile area smooth and un-interrupted. The Cambria quartz on the kitchen perimeter was installed with a farmhouse hammered copper Sinkology single-well sink and Delta Leland faucet.
This Delta Leland faucet comes with the new ShieldSpray Technology. This diverted spray option delivers a simple way to clean with precision while containing mess and splatter. A concentrated jet of water powers stubborn messes away in the center as a water shield simultaneously contains splatter and clears off the mess. It is like a forcefield around the spray power that keeps water from spraying everywhere. Learn more about ShieldSpray and see it in action here in this short YouTube clip.
Mixing metal finishes and textures can be such a great look in a rustic-styled space. This kitchen includes Oil Rubbed Bronze hardware, lighting, and faucets and a blend of Copper and Stainless. The farmsink is a hammered copper finish and the unique 30″ Zline hood is a mix of smooth copper and black trim. KitchenAid appliances in the Black Stainless finish add drama and a soft texture. If a silvery Stainless seems like it will look too modern in your space, be sure to stop by and see Black Stainless in person! This finish is so versatile and available in a lot of models. We did include on Stainless appliance in the kitchen. Tucked unto the interior corner of the island is a microwave drawer in a true Stainless Steel finish. Mixing metals can be done right and we love the look! Let our team help you with the total vision for your design.

A great kitchen design comes together in the details. Undercabinet molding helps to conceal those lights and outlets. Small details can make a big difference in the look of the overall finished space. In this kitchen the wall tile continues up around the kitchen window and is “capped” off by a valance and matching wooden panel above. The crown molding for the cabinetry has added interest with a change in depth on the corner cabinet.

We hope to have new episodes finished by the end of this Summer and you are going to really get more of a peek at our remodel process because we truly have filmed this one from start to finish.

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’sSignature 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.
We are thrilled to partner with Hazelwood Homes and all of our builders with designs and selections for entire homes being built in the Quad Cities region. If you are not familiar with Village Home Stores, we want to let you know that we also offer a bundle program for our customers who are building. This is a program put into place to put money back into your pocket once the building process nears completion. As you shop throughout our one-stop-shop showroom, your total purchases are bundled together to earn you FREE LIGHTING credit off your final lighting purchase. Learn more about this program by clicking here for a flier explaining it. Contact one of our lighting experts with any questions.
Our new home lighting expert will sit down with you and your print to help create a light list and determine your personal style and wishlist for the project. We will work with you and your lighting budget to find the right fixtures to suit your needs. In this project we included great selections like the Kichler “Braelyn” dinette light (shown above) and this unique caged “Scout” semi-flush light from Savoy House (shown below).
This home turned out so great and we are so honored that these clients choose to work with Village Home Stores to design and furnish a part of the space they have now moved into. If you would like to see more images from this project in Geneseo, IL we have uploaded a full album to our award-winning Houzz page.

The past two tours here on the blog have been from a home in Davenport, Iowa we just completed a remodel at. This is a beautiful home that is still fairly new. The lower level of the home however, was ready for the final touches to customize the spaces perfectly for the owner’s lifestyle. We now wrap up our features with two spaces in the lower level that are unique and amazing! Take a look at this before and after of a storage room turned craft space. What a dream area for any creative!
Tons of added storage space in tall pantry cabinets that can accommodate boxes, bins and containers of all sizes. All of that tall, deep storage space plus an island area for a worksurface. This space will be used for crafting and sewing projects. We honestly wouldn’t mind any task as long as it can be done in this gorgeous room.
One side of the island has an overhang of countertop so a stool can be pulled up beneath it when seated to sew or work. A second “floating stool” can be pull up on any other edge of the island if needed. Cambria Quartz in the “Berwyn” design is truly the very best surface you can ask for as a craft table! Quartz will not get damaged if your hot glue gun happens to drip down, it is nonporous, and you can even cut directly on it.
The island is built from a single drawer base cabinet including a total of 6 drawers to help sort and organize tools and supplies. The cabinetry in this Craft Space is from our Dura Supreme line. The Shaker door is painted in a gray “Storm” finish. We love how it pairs with the counters and flooring.
All of those specialized “extra” spaces of a home is what makes it a home after all. For instance, why get a gym membership if you have this space downstairs?!? Home Gyms are a great investment an can be placed in sometimes previously-unused spaces. This room was just a storage alcove a few months ago.
Now it is a perfect Home Gym escape! A Luxury Vinyl Plank floor from our Adura line is installed here and all through the hall and Craft Room as well. Adura Distinctive planks that are 6″ x 48″ in size in the Seaport Wharf color. Vinyl plank floors are great for spaces like this. They are durable and more warm on bare feet that ceramic tile.
