VILLAGE HOME SHOW | SEASON 1 EPISODE 2

2 Great Bettendorf, Iowa Kitchen Remodels And a Visit From a Maytag Expert!

In the second episode of the Village Home Show, we tour two recent remodels and have a visitor from Maytag stop by the studio. We tour two Bettendorf kitchen remodels and take a close look at the appliances within. This show gives viewers a chance to learn about our completed projects in the Quad Cities area. We hope it will give you great ideas for your next home project from the kitchen to the bath and beyond. We are honored that our customers have chosen Village Home Stores to help make their houses feel even more like home, and we are excited that we can share the experience with our viewers. Press play below to watch:

Kitchen Remodel One:

We first met this Bettendorf, IA couple at a QCBR Home Show event. They had been considering a remodel to their existing kitchen for a number of years but hadn’t really been inspired yet to take on the full kitchen remodel for their Bettendorf home. After meeting Village Home Stores at their home, our designer suggested something that they hadn’t even considered before…removing a wall and opening the space.

VillageHomeShowS1E2.1

An existing wall divided the front Living Room area from the current kitchen. Our designer was able to show them a rendered drawing of a possible layout of the kitchen if that wall was removed. Now they were even more intrigued. Time passed as they considered the project and the more they stared at that wall, the more they realized… that wall had to go. By removing an existing wall to bury a supporting header within, the space is now open and bright.

VillageHomeShow S1E2.2

This new kitchen features Koch cabinets in the Seneca Birch “Briarwood” stain and a complete suite of Stainless Steel Whirlpool appliances give this kitchen an updated look while looking right at home in the space. Instead of matching the exact color of Oak trim and furniture throughout the home, the flooring and cabinets change to a similar tone but a more closed grain of wood. Selecting wood tones that compliment each other instead of duplicating a finish can really give off a more polished look in many cases. Our thanks this Bettendorf couple for striking up a conversation with us at the home show and for inviting us back in to share it with you on our TV show.

Kitchen Remodel Two:

Like many remodel stories, this one begins with a leaking pipe. A reverse osmosis system ended up flooding the floor of the existing kitchen damaging the current floor, the base section cabinets of the island, and some of the perimeter. But this remodeled space in Bettendorf, Iowa is now stunning!

VillageHomeShow S1E2.5

With three young children and busy lifestyle, a functional use of space wit plenty of storage for this busy family was priority. A 42″ wide panel-ready refrigerator was the perfect choice. Plenty of storage within and no large panels of Stainless Steel to distract from the overall look. A shallow cabinet caps off the Built-in refrigerator and conceals a kitchen command center area immediately accessed when entering from the garage. Directly behind this command center is an open charging station as well.

VillageHomeShow S1E2.6

The old location of the cook top was on the same wall as it is now. The user in the old layout was very crowded by the refrigerator immediately to its right. The cooking area of the new design now includes plenty of prep space on either side as well as a lot of style. The matching wood hood conceals a Broan blower within and this section becomes the main focal point of that facing wall of the kitchen.

VillageHomeShow S1E2.3

The perimeter of the kitchen is the Koch “Westbrook” door style. It is a Birch wood painted “Pearl” and an “Umber” glaze has been applied. The cabinet construction has been upgraded to a dovetailed drawerbox on full-extension, soft-closing guides.

VillageHomeShow S1E2.7

The large island in the new design is also from Koch. The same “Westbrook” door this time in a Cherry wood has been finished in the “Java” color. The new island has more of a furniture look to it. Access to storage from all sides of the space add function and the Microwave drawer is easily accessible but hidden from first sight as you enter the room. Legs have been added to the raised eat-in area of the Island in the same style as the cook top bump-out area. “Delicatus” granite counters throughout bring the entire look together.

Each episode will be a before and after story of a few recent projects. This episode is on the set of WQAD TV where we are building their kitchen set. You can see how it took shape from conception to completion! You will also get to enjoy other remodeled homes right hear in the Quad Cities area.

WQAD – TV Moline, IL On Set Kitchen

The first project is at WQAD TV in Moline, IL. Everything in the kitchen is working and will be used on shows at different times. You will see the kitchen be used on air which is exciting in itself!

VillageHomeShow

The design includes a large batwing shaped peninsula with a corner sink. It continues on to gas cooktop. It is capped off with a pub height tabletop complete with stools. The table top can be used in on-air interviews apart from the main WQAD set. Along the walls in the back, you can see a counter depth refrigerator and wall oven combination with a microwave. There is a tall pantry that has sliding shelves and an X-style wine rack included. You will notice a glass door cabinet centered in the space, to add interest. The countertops are Cambria Quartz. We had an expert stop by to tell us more about these Cambria Quartz tops. VillageHomeShowS1E1.4

Kitchen Remodel One:

The first before and after on our first episode is a fresh look for an outdated kitchen. The layout worked for the homeowners but the only thing that was kept from the original design was the hardwood floors. The new kitchen is bright and beautiful! Painted birch cabinets from the Koch Classic Line adorn the walls. There is a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator with a much bigger pantry and a double range that gives many baking options.

VillageHomeShow S1E1.6

 

Gone are the old laminate countertops, replaced with a beautiful granite countertops. Where the old desk used to be there is a china hutch with a custom built look. It has glass doors and a furniture valance in the toespace. What a great way to hide away things that used to clutter the space before. Something extra special in the space is a mosaic tile backsplash. It blends beautifully with the stainless, ceramic, and glass. It is not only the bigger things in this space that make it special, but those small things as well that create a beautiful and welcoming space!

VillageHomeShow S1E1.7

There is a special cabinet in the kitchen that is located to the left of the range. It is called a blind corner cabinet. Some people shudder when they hear this, but this is a great design! It has half-moon shaped shelves that swing and slide making it very easy to use the whole space.

Kitchen Remodel Two:

We now move on a great before and after story from our hometown of Geneseo, IL. The kitchen in the home was all original oak, and was in need of a fresh look. The main
goal was to make a more functional use of the space. It has been updated with cherry
kitchen cabinets and granite countertops.

VillageHomeShowS1E1.1

The new hardwood floors are stunning and run throughout the kitchen and dining areas. We added built-in stainless steel appliances from Kitchenaid. With undercabinet lighting, they can change the feel of the room by dimming the lights. We removed a laundry room wall which allowed for space for two pantry cabinets on either side of the oven with the new design.VillageHomeShow S1E1.3

Be sure to watch this episode because there is a wonderful backdoor bench area right inside the garage entry. What busy family wouldn’t want that!? What a great place to enter the home and get items stored right away before you go any further. VillageHomeShow S1E1.5

There is an all new wet bar area just outside the kitchen which is great for entertaining. This is a wonderful, busy family that now can make better use of their space with the new layout and design! They even have a wonderful new desk area with extra storage and a USB outlet for charging phones and other devices.
