Two Bathroom Remodels Plus Some Amazing Switches and Outlets

We welcome you to watch Episode 7 of the Village Home Show! In this episode of the show we are excited to share two remodeling stories of local bathrooms that get a huge reboot! We have shown many kitchen remodels, but this time we are exploring bathrooms. Another topic we are excited to cover in this episode is new options for outlets and light switches. They really are something special.

Spacious Bettendorf Iowa Bathroom Gets a Makeover

The first bathroom we look at in this episode had a ton of space already. The homeowners were right in knowing that just a few changes could really make it really suit their needs. Village Homes Stores gave it a warm, neutral look with a traditional style that creates an amazing getaway for the homeowners. A bench seat was added and a beautiful tiled shower area really completes the look. With glass on two sides, it creates an amazing open look.

A 5 Star Bathroom Retreat in Colona, IL

A lot went into the preparations for the second bathroom we have to share with you on this episode. The original bathroom had a very large layout with lots of great natural light. The homeowners were looking for ways to make better use of their space. The entire bathroom was demo-ed including the master bedroom attached to the bath. The tiled tub pedestal and wood apron were removed to make way for the new freestanding tub. An arched tray ceiling above the new tub frames in the statement wall that draws your eye from the unique tub to the new light above it.

The shower goes into the same location but there is an addition of a bench seat, custom wall shelf, and new shower head and control system. What an incredible space to use! A mosaic tile is repeated in a bathtub wall niche, in the new custom shower, and again behind the mirrors in each vanity area.

A stunning chandelier now hangs in the new bathtub area. This fixture is a warm, champagne gold finish that pairs will with other metals and brings warmth and a unique reflection to the tub area.

We are pretty jealous of this new spacious and stylish tub area. But don’t think that all that open space will give you a chill. We did install a heated flooring system beneath the tile before it was installed. Exiting the shower or the bathtub, your bare feet with be greeted with warmth.

Tow Local Kitchen Before & After Stories

Welcome to Episode 6 of the Village Home Show. In this episode we will share with you the before and after stories of two remodeled kitchens right in our local area. Also in this episode, an expert in tile will discuss options and the latest trends in kitchen tile.

A Backsplash Adds Texture and Style to Your Space

The 18″ space from your kitchen countertop to the bottom of your wall cabinetry is a great surface to express your personal style. If you have a larger area of wall above a cooktop, range, or kitchen sink you have even more of an opportunity to add texture and style to your space. There are various categories of tile material that can be installed in a kitchen backsplash. We will see many styles in this episode of the Village Home Show. Some general wall tile categories used in a kitchen include:


  • Ceramic
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Natural Stone
  • Mirror
  • Combinations of all of these

Tour a Remodeled Rock Island Kitchen From Start to Finish

The original kitchen in this Rock Island home included an entire empty wall offering no storage at all. If this kitchen was going to get remodeled, it needed to be done to use the space much smarter and open it up to the areas nearby. The goal of the new design from Village Home Stores was to create one open space with plenty of new storage.


In the new design, seating has been added to the area of wall that was removed from the existing kitchen. This shifted the dining room table to move into the front room area. This remodel story is exactly why we love having the opportunity to show you with video just how open and inviting the overall space is. See an alternative to a microwave hood… the over-the-COUNTER model by Sharp! This unique model allows you to keep the microwave off the counter but frees up the hood area for something more decorative.

Be sure to watch this before and after story to also see the custom hutch area and a linen cabinet that we built-in down the hallway. Plus Tucker (shown below) have his very own favorite storage cabinet he wants to show you.

A Geneseo, IL Kitchen Remodel From Floor to Ceiling

A stunning remodeled space in Geneseo, IL. Birch wood cabinetry in the Seneca door style and Briarwood stain and a black accent glaze are perfectly paired with Cambria Quartz counters in the Blackwood design. But the sink wall tile is what truly grabs your attention.

A cappuccino linear mosaic tile is illuminated by our diode led system beneath the wall cabinetry. The tile even reflects onto the dark Cambria tops in a way that mirrors the tile back onto the tops. Watch this episode to see how we removed the grid ceiling and tiles and replaced everything from floor to ceiling and from start to finish.
