Edgebrooke Homes- Kitchen With Blue Island in Bettendorf, Iowa

Blue cabinetry is having more than just a “moment” in the Kitchen and Bath industry! We have installed so many stunning spaces over the past fews years that have introduced a painted blue finish and now it is become such a staple option for Transitional, Scandinavian, and Modern Farmhouse styled spaces. Blue cabinetry is forecasted to remain an accent color for many years to come. Our Koch Classic Cabinetry line makes a neutral blue-gray paint called “Charcoal Blue” and it truly makes a great statement as the island finish in this Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen. Blue and white cabinet kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa home.

This home, built by Edgebrooke Homes, was a QCBR Fall Parade of Homes stop and it is such a wonderful example of how Village can partner with you and your builder to save you time AND money. Shopping our one-stop-shop experience and bundling your purchases is the way to go and it gets you a a more complete design concept! Complete, cohesive designs begin with a vision early on in the design phase. Village works hard to keep you on track with that vision (and budget).  This great room design concept blends bright painted whites, a Charcoal Blue accent, gray-toned wood floors, and warm rustic woods. Blue and white cabinet kitchen in Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The main kitchen perimeter is a “White” painted cabinetry in the same “Bristol” doorstyle as the kitchen island. Staggered heights and depths of wall cabinetry can help to add interest to a kitchen design that has tall ceilings. This kitchen also includes two heights for casual dining. A large dinette area at dining height, and a single-level kitchen island extends to add more seating at the island. Blue and white kitchen with dining and kitchen island seating in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The pantry and refrigerator wall of the kitchen actually conceals a hidden feature. The pantry doors open to reveal access to the large walk-in pantry space that turns the corner behind the wall of cabinetry. This same look can be applied in a remodel situation with existing closets or unique spaces. Ask your designer at Village Home Stores how we can include one in your own design. Walk-through pantry front in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Village Home Stores doesn’t want to just know what kitchen spaces inspire you… we want to know what your own dream kitchen looks like. We know it can be difficult for our clients to have a clear vision of what that looks like early on in the design phase. That is why we are here to help. You showing us spaces and ideas that inspire you, helps us build a concept for your own space and tastes.  We have a number of great specialty cabinet options like this pantry front that can take your design to the next level! Press play below to see the pantry doors open up to reveal the hidden room behind them.

The tall pantry cabinet is balanced by the refrigerator surround on the opposite end of this wall. Also included on this wall is a microwave drawer unit. Microwave drawers are a great way to keep the microwave appliance off of the counter and reachable for any users. Another great location for a microwave drawer is in a kitchen island. This section of the featured kitchen creates a great landing space of countertop for loading and unloading the refrigerator and also a work surface for microwave use and food prep. Sharp microwave drawer in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Counter depth refrigerator models can really help you so much when the design demands it for traffic paths and space allowances. In this kitchen, a standard depth unit works perfectly “built-in” against the wall on one side and with a tall, deep panel on the other. A deep cabinet above completes the look. The 36″ wide Whirlpool model fits and offers so much great storage. It also stays looking great with a Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel finish that easily wipes clean. Whirlpool WRF555SDFZ French Door Refrigerator in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

The kitchen island includes the kitchen sink and a Whirlpool dishwasher. This dishwasher is quiet at just 47 decibels (normal conversation is at about 50 dba). A TotalCoverage Spray Arm cleans with twice the jets as usual and an In-Door Silverware Basket frees up rack space by easily fitting on the front of the lower rack or in the door to make room for more dishes. Charcoal Blue painted kitchen island and Whirlpool dishwasher in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

The lighting for the great room has a dark, matte bronze metal finish. Clear glass on the Feiss “Baskin” pendants above the island keep the space feeling light and airy. The Sea Gull Ravenwood Manor Chandelier in the dinette area has 5 exposed vintage bulbs. This 5-light fixture adds style and impact to the space. A great look for this casual but upscale space. Kitchen lighting above island and casual dining areas in a Bettendorf, Iowa home.

By not including a microwave hood in a kitchen you and your designer at Village Home Stores have many more decorative options for a hood in your kitchen. In this Bettendorf kitchen design we were able to include a decorative wood hood. We fit the hood cabinet with a 390 CFM Broan insert for the range and cooktop area below. Check out the great freestanding double-oven range on this wall. Whirlpool double oven range in a Bettendorf, Iowa kitchen.

Two oven cavities so you can bake at two seperate temperatures. The gas cooktop includes a 5th center oval burner. This gas cooktop has EZ-2-Lift™ hinged grates to make clean up easy!  Press play below to see these hinged grates in action:

This model is packed with so many great features like Frozen Bake™. Skip preheating the oven for frozen faves like pizza, lasagna, chicken nuggets, fries or pies, thanks to Frozen Bake™ technology. It also bakes with true convection cooking. That helps you cook foods faster by using a third element plus a fan to distribute hot air evenly over, under and around your food. The kitchen is a part of a larger great room space and a gorgeous engineered Oak wood floor ties many of the main-level spaces together. This engineered Oak is from Hallmark Flooring’s Novella series and it is the Fitzgerald color.

That same flooring is installed in the foyer, great room, kitchen, pantry, dinette, powder room and the formal dining room shown above. We love the light fixture selected for the formal dining room.

Coal Valley, IL- Black, White, and Gold Kitchen Remodel

So what is black and white and gold all over? This perfectly on-trend kitchen remodel in Coal Valley, IL. A Transitional style space that is tasteful and right on trend! We originally met with this customer about estimating design and materials for her brand new home. Instead she ended up finding a great existing home opportunity in Coal Valley, IL. She then began working with us to remodel this home completely to now reflect her own taste and personality.
great-room-kitchen

The home was in great shape and already had a very functional layout to work with. The 1990’s finishes however, were ready for an update. Medium Oak cabinetry, laminate counters, and beige paint graces every room. Here is a peek at the original kitchen that included a peninsula and white appliances. There was already a space adjacent to the kitchen for a dining area.
kitchen-before

This customer worked closely with a team from Village Home Stores and her own contractors to take the 90’s property not only up to date… but magazine cover worthy! When you work with Village Home Stores, part of our process is to present you with full color renderings of your designs. This is our process whether you are building or remodeling. In a remodel of this size, the renderings help to visualize the shift of the entire style of a home. Seeing the vision in a rendering helps out so much! Our experts work with you to make sure the complete design and all the selections within it will work perfectly AND reflect your own tastes. In this case, the tastes of our client were sophisticated and stylish!

Two-tone kitchen design has seen some major shifts over the past few years. Originally, the most comfortable way to two-tone a kitchen design has been to add a second finish to a freestanding kitchen island. A refreshing new approach has been to install a dark base cabinet and a lighter upper cabinet in a design. We see this with darker graphite grays, blacks, and even navy blue.

A single-level island in the center of the design seemed to almost appear to be wrapped in ribbon. That ribboned look is a waterfalling quartz installation. Hanstone quartz “Tranquility” is installed as the island countertop and the perimeter is a solid white “Royale Blanc” design.

With the peninsula now removed, that left plenty of room for a large island to stretch the full length of the kitchen. A Microwave drawer by Sharp® is at the center with a large drawer below. The microwave is surrounded by wide drawer stacks and added storage and a pullout waste basket on the end near the sink.

Cascading/waterfalling your countertops could become the jaw-dropping statement-maker you are looking for! We recently installed our new front desk area to include multiple waterfall counters and all of our showroom guest love the look. See those tops here in a past blog post.

With the quartz counters “wrapping” each end of the island, that doesn’t leave a great space to include an outlet. A large island like this in a great room space demands entertaining guest. Can’t you just picture this place full for a Holiday get-together? Power is needed for small appliances or even charging electronics when working from the island seating. We concealed the outlet right on the end beneath the decorative corner detail. The matte black outlet and cover blend perfectly. The kitchen island seats four and the nearby Dining area can accommodate more formal Dining guests. A 6-light gold orb fixture by Quorum hangs above the large dining table.

Not only did this client have a very clear idea of her own personal style, she was incredibly organized with her inspirations! If you are dreaming of a new kitchen but know it will be a few years down the road, start honing your own tastes and inspirations now! Not only did this client come to us with a contagious enthusiasm, she also came with binders full of ripped out magazine photos, Pinterest boards, and even Houzz ideabooks. The open shelf wall of her design came inspired by an instagram post by Kristin on the Bliss at Home blog.

We think this corner of the kitchen design is such a beautiful way to add a space to personalize and customize the kitchen throughout the year. The Cararra Marble herringbone backsplash tile is installed from countertop to ceiling. This tile from Epic Stone adds texture and detail without being a distraction or too busy. Marble cut into small tiles provides a timeless tone-on-tone look.

The gold shelf brackets are just one of the many gold accents throughout the space. The custom shelves are an Oak wood that has been charred. Charred or blackened wood accents are beginning to become a huge home accessories trend and we love introducing this look into the kitchen. The Japanese charred wood technique is called Shou Sugi Ban or Yakisugi.

The charred wood compliments the Black painted base cabinets so well and adds another unique texture to the design. The finishes are not the only thing that saw an update. Our adorne® collection of outlets and switches from legrand® add fuction and style to the space. Take a look at this great pop-out outlet below the open shelves.

Power when needed and concealed and stylish when not in use. Plus this single outlet packs a lot of power. This single pop-out includes 4 outlets! A brushed gold kitchen faucet adds another place for that pop of gold accent. This faucet also has a pull-out spray wand.

Selecting a accent color is only half of the process of executing it well. Accenting is all about balancing scale and locations of your colors. This kitchen includes pops of gold found in the lighting, hardware, and accessories. The underside of the kitchen island pendants give a peek-a-boo approach to the accent. These pendants are named “Placuna” and come from our Uttermost line.

Due to the large size of the new kitchen window, a single light wouldn’t seem appropriate. Two 10″ wide Kichler “Maclain” pendants hang framing in the sink area. The same legrand series that makes the pop-out outlet mentioned above also offers a modular undercabinet system. This unique system of lighting, outlets, and electronic docking accessories can be customized and changed to accommodate the kitchen needs.

All of the outlet and USB boxes can be pulled and moved to other locations. There are also bluetooth speaker inserts and accessories like this tablet dock. The look is sleek and best of all?, it allows your backsplash tile to spread the full height without being disrupted or distracted by an outlet. For kitchens including a full-height stone or quartz backsplash this system can really be a fantastic solution!

The painted black cabinets from the bases of the kitchen design are repeated in the taller elements of the kitchen. This looks especially stunning because of the new appliances included from KitchenAid®. A french door counter-depth refrigerator and double wall oven have been built-in to a painted black cabinet surround. The appliances are in the innovative and stylish Black Stainless Steel finish by KitchenAid®. This finish is a true Stainless Steel and the fingerprint-resistant finish creates a matte black look that pairs perfectly with this cabinet choice.

Black Stainless appliances are accented with chrome and Stainless details. This makes them pair well with other metal finishes in a complete design. This kitchen includes a Stainless cooktop and microwave drawer. The kitchen faucet and lighting above the sink are also a brushed golden finish that helps to compliment the stainless texture of the appliances. See another great example of mixed metals including Black Stainless here in a past blog post.

Of course any dream kitchen must include storage wish-list cabinets. Slide-out shelves, post and pans drawers, and a pull-out spice rack are among some of the inserts included in the design. We love how keeping the darker finish on the base cabinets helps to keep the overall space light and airy.

Village Home Stores also offers a full line of custom blinds and shades for your home. This wide new kitchen window has been fit with our Oxford House® “Transitions” shade.  While being operated the wide, horizontal stripes overlap to offer an open or closed look even when the shade is down. The shade is the “Dixie White” finish.

All of this rests on a stunning new Luxury Vinyl Tile (or L.V.T.) from our Fusion Hybrid collection. The gray woodgrain pattern is named “Dutch Pine”. This LVT is installed throughout the great room.

When we went to visit this finished kitchen to photograph it we noticed a little dish by the kitchen sink. It has a gold-winged flying pig attached to it. The client quickly said “Oh that? My friends and I always joked I would get the dream kitchen I had been planning in my head for year when pigs fly” Well don’t look now but there is a flying pig in her kitchen because it has happened!
