Showroom Updates 2017: First Impressions

We are beyond thrilled to share our 2017 showroom updates with you here on the blog! Village Home Stores has a lot of great things planned as we move into 2017. This showroom update is a significant start! We have purchased a third storefront and added 1,200 sq. ft. of space for a brand new lighting showroom. We will show you are that complete lighting space and our remodel process later this week. Let’s begin today with a tour of our brand new front reception area:

As our business continues to grow, we have changed and adapted our customer experience so that every person that visits our store leaves feeling glad they came. Our entire showroom now is over 9,000 sq. ft. that’s a lot of product and space all in one location! You will now enter the center door off of State Street and be greeted and guided by Therese. That’s Therese in the photo above, look how happy she looks in her new desk area! She creates all of our beautiful full-color renderings for our Kitchen & Bath Design customers. She will now be the first smiling face you see whether you are shopping for a single lightbulb, a full appliances package, or an entire home of products. The back wall of this new reception area is easily one of our favorite new areas of our entire showroom. Layers of texture and a variety of materials make a big first impression.

Have you seen our new signage inside the store? It looks so amazing day and night! We gave the folks at ItsaSchmollworld our logo and they gave us this incredible metal sign! We installed it over a Dahltile Limestone named Martinique Arctic Gray. The logo is back-lit with our Diode LED lighting system.

That means we can leave this sign lit all day and all night and use very little energy for the bold statement it makes. See for yourself how amazing this back wall looks in the evening when you are passing the store. The pendant lighting flanking the logo is another  great element to the finished design.

These pendants are from our ELK Lighting line. The series is named Gramercy. We love the schoolhouse shape to the glass and the brushed finish pairs perfect with the metal logo sign on the same wall. The wood panels behind each pendant are a unique new product we have just launched, DuChateau wall coverings. These panels are from the Kaudra series in the Brown Ash finish. We are so excited to has access to this great new product! Consider these wall coverings for a fireplace wall or as an accent wall in a Master Bedroom. Below is a moodboard of the variety of finishes included in this new front desk:

Brushed Bronze handles from our Top Knobs line add a warm matte-finish gold look which is right on trend for our industry. Two finishes and styles of DuraSupreme Cabinetry have been included in this desk design. Gray Painted cabinets in the Middleton doorstyle and paint called Moonstone. The warm gray/bronze laminated cabinets are the Talia Horizontal style in a finish named Wired Bronze. Many times the countertops selected can easily become overpowered by everything else in a complete look. These Cambria Quartz tops in the Seagrove design wrap just about every available remaining surface and command your attention!

This installation technique is called a “Waterfall” edge. Cambria seems to spring up from the floor, wrap the cabinets and desk surfaces and cascade back down again seamlessly. The front face of the desk includes a recessed area of paneling that repeats the Wired Bronze finish from the back wall of cabinetry.

All of this sits atop a new floor from our Marazzi line. This is a wood-look porcelain tile that will be a durable and stylish choice to hold up to the high-traffic area of the showroom. This 6″ x 36″ tile is from the American Estates series in the Natural color. If you want the look of wood but a durable and easy to clean surface, ask one of our flooring experts at Village about a wood-look tile.

Prophetstown, IL- Master Suite Remodel

Join us as we tour this beautifully remodeled Master Suite in Prophetstown, IL. Rustic materials with a refined look, it looks amazing! A set of French doors with textured glass open up to reveal a new space including a custom tiled shower, large soaking tub, a private watercloset area, and a stunning vanity area.

This Master Suite in the countryside is a rural retreat with earth tones and flowing organic lines in the mirrors and lighting selections. Neutral colors were selected as a backdrop to help showcase details like rustic knotty wood cabinets and some of the most interesting vanity sinks we have ever installed!

Two vessel sink areas are divided by a wall cabinet that meets the countertop in the center. A stack of drawers in brought out deeper to create a divided look and add interest to the shape of the vanity top. Koch Cabinetry in the “Vicksburg” doorstyle has been installed in a Rustic Beech wood species. This rustic wood is dressed up in a “Mocha” stain.

We love how the bright polished chrome hardware stands out on this rich “Mocha” finish. Speaking of standing out, how fun are the vessel sinks and faucets!?! These unique faucets seem to “sprout” out from the countertops. When turned on, the smooth glass design waterfalls down into the matching vessel sink. What a great look!

These unique sinks rest on a beautiful piece of maintenance-free quartz. Quartz is a fantastic material to use in a bathroom because it is durable and non-porous. This means that spilling any products onto the top will not cause damage to it. There is no risk of scratching or scorching the tops either. Cambria Quartz in the “Fairbourne” design is a great subtle choice as a base to showcase these unique sinks. The look is beautiful and this customer selected a great edge profile to showcase the unique custom shape of their vanity design as well. The “Waterfall” edge from Cambria catches the light and adds a great detail to the look.

Tour this entire bathroom remodel on a recent episode of the Village Home Show. We walk you through every detail and finish. Press play in the thumbnail below to see this bathroom plus a hall bath and kitchen work that were all completed by our store.

Other details include the addition of furniture style feet in the toespace of the sink cabinets. This helps give a more convincing furniture-style look and adds a formal feel to the rustic materials. Adding feet may seem like a small detail, but it is these small details that work together to give a truly customized end result.

In this Master Bathroom the shower has been separated from the tub area. Visible right upon entry into the Master Bath, this shower is eye-catching but not to be upstaged by the beautiful tiled tub area in front of it.

There is plenty of space for a large “drop-in” soaking tub. A tiled deck surrounds it and the accent tile from the shower is carried over into the front apron area of the tub plus the back of a custom tiled niche.

Consider ever bit of space as a chance to love your finished design. This wall niche is in the perfect location for soaps and toiletries to be stowed away. The niche also gave a great opportunity to repeat the accent mosaic tile.

Speaking of customizing every corner of your design, why not add a bench in your shower. This tiled corner bench area might not seem like a large feature but it can be a place to rest a leg when shaving, or even set down toiletries within reach. benchSo many of the bathrooms we remodel now include a custom tiled shower instead of a standard unit. Custom showers like this allow us to add the shower to whatever unique location you may have. Many times this means you may end up with a larger and more open shower look. Tiled showers commonly receive a custom glass entry of some sort. In this case, a short threshold of tile was installed and an glass door hinges out into the Bathroom.

To help let in as much natural light as possible, a fixed pane of glass is installed from the kneewall behind the tub to meet the top of the custom door. The finished look is great and the end result is a more open and bright shower space.

There is plenty of storage in this new Master Bath. Whatever will not fit in the vanity area can certainly find a home in this built-in linen cabinet. A tall cabinet front was ordered to match the vanity area and now this corner of the bath has a customized look.

In the opposite corner of the bath from the linen cabinet is the stool. A private “water closet” space can be a wonderful layout choice when planning a large bathroom like this. The light oak trim and doors are a great contrast to the dark Rustic Beech wood of the cabinetry.

This same light wood finish is found on the set of French Doors that lead out from the Bath into the Master Bedroom. In place of a clear glass or even mullioned wood and glass doors, textured inserts were selected. We love the way this allows light in and out of the Bathroom while also giving privacy with the heavy texture. Village Home Stores has a wide selection of doors and millwork that we can provide during a project like this.
