Stunning Quad Cities Kitchen Remodel
So Great It Needed a WHOLE Episode
We are already up to episode 8 of the Village Home Show! We always want to tell you about new and exciting products for your kitchen and bath and show you ideas from our existing projects in Illinois and Iowa.
On the latest episode, you will see a kitchen remodel that is SO big that we use our whole episode to show you the project from beginning to end! The new kitchen features gray cabinetry from Dura Supreme, Cambria Quartz Countertops, a stainless steel appliance package from KitchenAid, and lighting and tile that will make you wish that this kitchen was yours!
Before We Begin
The original kitchen had medium oak cabinets and dark countertops. The cabinets had a raised panel door. The look was very traditional. There was also a very nice full height backsplash which was a great feature in this 22-year-old kitchen. There were quite a few walls that blocked the view in this kitchen, which will be going away in the remodeled kitchen.
The dining room has an amazing view into the woods. There is a wall that divides the two areas and blocks a lot of great natural light. There is also a walled off cooking zone that had no prep space which gave a crowded feel for he space. You will note that there was a decorative oak valence. You just wait to see what replaced it! The kitchen was traditional and warm wood towns. You will see a big change from this styling.
Out with the Old, in with the NEW Kitchen!
Definitely watch the segment from our friends at Dura Supreme about the cabinetry used and the process the company takes in finding the best and newest styles and finishes. They spare no expense in finding the best products and trends on the market today.
All of the view-blocking walls are now gone. Now instead of a kitchen with a small dinette area there is a whole new upper level of this home. There is a new kitchen area, dining space, and great room area. New hardwood has been installed throughout. We used a product called Ram Board. As you watch shows like “Love it or List It“, “This Old House“, and “Income Property“, look down and you will see this product in use!
The first thing you will notice is the open and airy look of the new space. You will see a knee-wall that is built in bar-height for the support of an eat in kitchen. Cabinets are completely transformed from the dark green and oak from before to a cherry kitchen with a “Caraway” finish in gray. Notice the details like the door profile and the knife edge option on the Cambria quartz countertops. There is striking tile, a field tile that has been installed horizontally. It has a woodgrain look that looks great with the cabinets.
One of the most impressive things is the backsplash design of cascading glazzio mosaic tile behind the stainless hood. Check out the beautiful waterfall effect it brings. The appliances are all top of the line with tons of great features you won’t get elsewhere Pop up outlets lend to the clean finished look. There is a softap dimmer switch for just the right level of light. There is tons of smart storage as well, including a 36″ pantry cabinet with slide out shelves that adjust.
Notice the sleek and stylish single drill faucet by Axor with the under mount Kohler sink with a low divider. This kitchen is one of the most stunning and sophisticated remodels Village Home Stores has completed. We want to thank the homeowners for sharing this experience with us. We are thrilled to share this Quad Cities treasure with you!
