East Moline, IL- Wall Removed to Create Multiple Dining Options

We were so thrilled to begin this kitchen remodel in East Moline while we were filming a season of our TV show. It allowed us the opportunity to go beyond just showing you some before photos and then tour the finished space. Instead we were able to really show you the entire process! Here is the finished space including Birch cabinetry from our Koch Classic line in the “Vicksburg” doorstyle. Vicksburg is a full-overlay door with a solid-wood center panel.

The original kitchen (shown below) included dark stained cabinetry in a U-shape layout with a peninsula area of base cabinets and wall cabinetry suspended above. This created a very crowded feel to the kitchen when in it working or entering it from the front door. Laminate countertops with a drop-in sink and white appliances were all a part of the old kitchen that was ready for an update.

Now the new kitchen is open and incredibly stylish! The back wall of the kitchen has been removed and in its place is a bar-height knee wall with an overhang for seating. These 4 barstools are just the beginning of the many dining options this entire open concept now has. Outside of the new kitchen are two front rooms, each ready to be considered a formal Dining Room space. Why designate one room as a dining room when the crowd you entertain changes over time? Now that this couple has children and grandchildren coming for meals, they can fill the entire space with tables and seating if needed!

Want a better idea of what a jobsite looks like between the before photos and all the beautiful after photos we share here on the blog? Press play below to watch the episode of the Village Home Show including the entire remodel story from this East Moline, IL kitchen. Tour this kitchen with the before and after story plus everything in between.

What a difference a fresh new layout can make for the entire main level of this home! As youi saw in the episode, we installed new wood floors throughout. Depending on the flooring material and the project itself, your floors may need an extra layer of protection during the remodel process. In the case of this East Moline home a heavy-duty temporary floor protection is used named Ram Board. The Paramount Acacia hardwood flooring is installed and almost immediately after installation the durable floor protecting paper goes over it. kitchen-during-east-moline

The next few weeks of this kitchen floor’s installed lifespan will be it’s most challenged. That is why we take no risks of a scratch or a dent as crews work atop the new floors. We even left this Ram Board in place while filming the kitchen for the show. Once everything is finished and the appliances have been delivered and installed, the Ram Board is removed to reveal your new flooring. Acacia wood flooring from the Quad Cities flooring experts at Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.com

This Acacia is from the Bucks Country series in the “Teak” finish. The flooring finish is a great compliment to the kitchen cabinetry. The darkest areas of the flooring color are a great match to the Birch “Brandy” stain on the cabinets. Our favorite corner of the new kitchen is this lighted glass-door cabinet with wine storage. Remodeled East Moline, IL kitchen including a wine display cabinet. | VillageHomeStores.com

Glass shelves allow the LED lighting to wash the interior of the cabinet with light. A decorative winerack below can house plenty of bottles. Grecian white interlocking marble mosaic tile reflects on the new polished “Black Pearl” granite counters.

In this East Moline, IL kitchen, the finished combination if gorgeous! Rich, polished stone and a Birch wood with a rich Cherry look. The finishes in this now opened space are perfection. East Moline kitchen remodeled by Village Home Stores. | VillageHomeStores.comWith the wall removed and the kitchen opened up into the nearby Dining Room area, the space has plenty of light within it.

There is plenty of storage in the new kitchen including a tall pantry cabinet next to the refrigerator.Pantry cabinet near refrigerator. | VillageHomeStores.com

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.

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.

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.

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.
