We have product in many many homes throughout the Quad Cities Region. Village doesn’t just design beautiful kitchen spaces. We can help you turn any room in your home into an inspired and unique space. The areas in your home where you entertain guests and spend time together as a family should reflect your own personal tastes and make your feel at ease.

We all know that the bar top is where everyone is going to congregate when you have people over. This unique home bar design takes that knowledge to the next level and creates the perfect top to do just that! The countertop gives the illusion of almost floating between supporting bases.

How can an engineered quartz top this thick look so airy and lightweight? The short answer: teamwork. This customer found a suspended bar design online that they loved the look of. They shared that photo with their designer from Village Home Stores and we went to work with the “Fossil Grey” quartz fabricators. Our team came up with a safe, functional bracket design and install that would give them the look they wanted with the piece of mind needed for this family room area.

Now the bar area can be accessed from either side of the top and TVs can be placed above the bar sink AND across the room in the other direction if needed. This extra thick looking top is actually another design illusion. The look is achieved by fabricating the edges of the top with a “laminated” edge. This means that just the edges of the top have this thickness. If you were to reach underneath a few inches you will feel the reveal of the true thickness of the slab. We included a magazine in the image below to help showcase the scale of the top thickness.

Of course no great bar design is complete without stylish lighting. Three pendants lights from our Kichler line illuminate the bar top. They have been installed on the opposite side of the needed header above. The look is customized and stylish. Recess can lighting on the other side of the header help to light the back bar area.

An on-trend wood-look tile has been installed as the bar flooring AND the backsplash. This Florim tile is from the Charleston series in the “Timber” color. The variety of the colors in this collection allow for so many decor options. There are plenty of real barnwood materials available for your space but consider a surface like this tile. Now the floors and the backsplash are a perfect match plus an easy-to-clean surface.

Of course having a bar sink in this lower level will save these clients many trips up and down the stairs while entertaining. The cabinetry in this bar area is from our Koch Classic line. The door is named “Ridgegate” and the finish is a Birch wood with a “Java” stain. See the beautiful painted white kitchen upstairs in this home here in a previous feature post.

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.
