Looking Back & Looking Ahead

Before looking ahead at what amazing things 2015 has in store for Village Home Stores, we wanted to take a look back at our year online with you. Your response has been so fantastic to all of our content and we thank you so much for joining in with us! With 30 years of business behind us and many more ahead of us, we have been so happy to start sharing with you some of the work that we are doing. Turns out you love seeing beautiful spaces just as much as we love creating them! So what have you been most interested in? Finishes and function!  We have had great feedback on the many combinations of finishes we can arrange for your project.finishes

pinboard_kitchenWith all of the categories or products and finishes available it can be overwhelming when you begin a project. At Village Home Stores we realize that taking on a project like a remodel or building a new home, there is a lot to select. That is why during your project you will gain an entire team of staff here at Village to help you make those selections. Seeing combinations we have already completed can help us help you decide your own tastes and needs. See our entire Pinterest board of completed looks here. We will be adding to it almost weekly throughout 2015.

Selecting finishes for your project is not the only thing that grabbed your attention in 2014. You made it clear to us you are also interested making your design as functional as possible.Function

Kitchens need to look beautiful but they also must function as best as they can. All across our social media platforms we have noticed you love having access to see inside some of the cabinets in our designs.pinterestThis Kitchen Storage Solutions board over on our Pinterest page is a great running collection of some of the amazing cabinets available right now to help you make the most of your kitchen space. Many of these cabinet storage solutions can be ordered from our standard cabinet lines and a smarter way to use your space is one of the main reasons why  our customers choose to remodel their existing kitchens.

pinterest_ideas_kitchenPinterest is a wealth of inspiration for your project and if you see an idea on there do share it with us! We would love to help make it happen for your project! Walk-through pantry fronts continue to be a common request from our customers and our Pinterest followers love to see them as well. Our most popular board over on our Pinterest page is one that showcases “Transitional Kitchens“. This pin board  has a collective 145 “re-pins” and proves to us that many of our Pinterest followers are drawn to more universal styles instead of full on Traditional or Modern kitchen spaces. Choosing fixtures like your cabinets and tops in a Transitional style is a functional way to use your space and adapt to it over the years as your own tastes change.

We also have become very active on the website Houzz.com. If you are planning a remodel or building a home anytime soon we highly recommend starting a profile with Houzz to keep you organized. It is a wonderful tool to collect ideas and share them with your Village designer and/or builder.houzz2014

Hidden OrganizerOne of our popular images on our Houzz page is this kitchen organizer drop zone cabinet. This image has been added to 170 ideabooks on the site in 2014. It shows a panel-ready refrigerator as well as a kitchen “command center” in a Bettendorf home. We completely understand why anyone working on a kitchen project would want to include this in their design. Keeping kitchen counter piles and messes organized for an active family can be challenging but this unit helps out tremendously! See it in action here over on our YouTube channel.

Speaking of YouTube, that is another place you can look forward to seeing more of us in 2015. See our channel here. You can also watch our new Village Home Show on WQAD ! We will also have a website where you can watch current and past episodes, just click here .
