The DuraSupreme Cabinetry Experts

In this kitchen we tour some unique design features including mirrored cabinetry and tWatch Quad Cities Area kitchen and bathrooms transform on the Village Home Show. | VillageHomeShow.com

Pay attention to some of the great kitchen trends that are put into action in this space. The use of mirror in the cabinetry doors, a full-height granite backsplash, and staggered heights and depths to name a few.

We also showcase just how great cooking with induction can be! Watch us race a cup of water to boiling on an induction cooktop and in the microwave. You will love seeing how quick, consistent, and responsive cooking with induction can be.

Warm Gray Stained Cabinets and Provenza Hardwood Floors:

Gray has been making big waves in the Kitchen and Bath Industry and this Quad Cities kitchen is a wonderful example of the trend. A rustic wood cabinet stained in a warm gray finish is paired with Cambria Quartz counters in the New Quay design. We also love the bold tile selections for this kitchen. Two styles of mosaic tiles in warm gray colors have been installed in a very stylish way behind a KitchenAid canopy hood.

The warm gray stain of the cabinets allow for the woodgrain and rustic knots to be showcased. This stain compliments the hardwood floors so well. Provenza hardwood floors in a rich medium-dark finish have been installed at an angle for an added edge to the finished space.

A wide peninsula divides the new kitchen area from the rest of the Great Room. A raised bar-height top adds seating and serving space to the design. There are plenty of great storage cabinets in the new kitchen. Be sure to watch this kitchen tour to see features like sliding shelves, angled end cabinets, and pull-out cuttingboards.

Just around the corner from the new kitchen is a bathroom that has been arranged to include a front-load laundry pair with folding counter. A tall linen cabinet is perfect for storing cleaning supplies and a hanging rod is installed between cabinetry right above the laundry. Having the laundry area centrally located in a busy household is becoming a very popular home feature for our new construction customers and we are beginning to see this choice made when available in remodels. VillageHomeShow S2E2.3

A Prophetstown, IL Remodeled Kitchen and Two Baths:

In this episode of the Village Home Show we tour a whole home of completed remodel projects. A kitchen gets a whole new look (but keeps 80% of the original cabinetry) plus two remodeled bathrooms. Press play below to watch.


The kitchen in this home was ready for a refresh in style and features but the cabinetry was already fine. We hear this a LOT when talking to new customers or customers considering a remodel. What do I do if I want a “new” kitchen but my current one is just fine? We can help!

In this case, we were able to keep the original Oak cabinetry in the perimeter of the space and add to the kitchen elements that encourage a mixed materials look. The result: a gorgeous kitchen you will love touring in this episode! Mixed woods, metal finishes, and textures including hammered copper and KitchenAid’s new Black Stainless Steel finish.

A weathered, distressed and painted finish on a new island from DuraSupreme cabinetry plus a unique backpanel design you will love. We also installed new flooring in the kitchen (modeled below by a very adorable client). The Hickory hardwood floors are from our Hallmark line. We love the look of the Hickory in the overall mix of materials.

New tile flooring was installed in the Sunroom and two bathrooms also got a new look. The first is a Hall Bath that includes natural textures and finishes in a warm gray palette. In addition to new tiled flooring, a custom tiled shower is installed with a cascading mosaic tile accent along the back wall. A custom glass shower door gives a clean, and clear view into the shower and keeps the overall room feeling spacious and bright.

VillageHomeShow S2E1.4

Down the hall is the Master Suite in the home. In this episode we tour the new bathroom retreat for the home. We converted an area to now include a large double vanity cabinet wall, linen cabinet area, a private water closet for the toilet, a beautiful tub area, an an incredible custom tiled shower.

VILLAGE HOME SHOW | SEASON 1 EPISODE 10

 Granite Fabrication and a New Look For Formica

On this episode of the Village Home Show, you’ll learn about the different types of countertop materials to fit your lifestyle and taste. We’ll take you on a tour to one of our stone fabrication shops to see the customization process. Plus we show you a before and after kitchen story that includes Formica’s 180FX series with a marble counter fakeout you have to see to believe. Press play below to watch.

When comparing a laminate countertop to a solid surface countertop, they are not heat and scratch resistant. Because quartz countertops are nonporous, there is no maintenance required.

With a natural stone, there is a sealant applied to the stone because the surface is porous. Typically you shouldn’t have to reseal the stone for another 10 years, but it all depends on how much you use the countertop kits. Natural stones come in large slabs of material so you can expect seams. For customers concerned about seams, they should view the slabs and choose the best one for their kitchen design. When the fabricator comes to the customer’s home to do the template, he will look for the placement of the seam.

Fortunately, natural stone countertops can also be installed in bathrooms. One of the best choices for your bathroom is the quartz countertop due to its low maintenance factor. We also offer marble because it is easy to keep clean and care for.

The Edge Profile

The edge profile may seem like a small detail, but it’s that type of detail that gives your countertop an appealing look. There are a variety of options to choose from. However, some are limited to certain material. In the category of stone countertops, there are a number of edge profile options available such as a standard ease edge, half round edge, and more. Other interesting edge options include the rustic, chisel profile. Each category of countertop material has a number of edge options for you and your design needs.

The Granite Fabrication Process

Whenever a price is quoted for Natural Stone or Quartz countertops from our store, fabrication is included in the price. The fabrication process has always been a part of the process that remains a mystery… until now. In Episode 5 we toured the warehouse where you can select your slab of material…but what happens next? Take a trip with us to Wilton Iowa in this episode to find out.

VillageHomeShow S1E10.3

 

BJ shows us around the Surface Resource facility and walks us through the whole process from receiving to installation. Learn everything from sink cutouts to how your edge profile is applied. This was a very fun and interesting day of filming.

Before and After Kitchen in Geneseo, IL

Many of our featured kitchens include rooms that have been opened up because of a wall being removed.. but not all projects are that extreme. In this kitchen remodel, we used the same space and just added new materials without removing any walls.

VillageHomeShow S1E10.1

Bright, painted white cabinetry and classic marble countertops…….or wait? That’s Formica! Yes indeed! Formica’s 180fx series of large-format printed laminate has been installed for a great marble fakeout that is very successful. VillageHomeShow S1E10.2
