Village Home Show Presents Our First Episode!


Village Home Stores is proud to share our first episode of the Village Home Show! Our show is to give viewers a chance to learn about our bath and kitchen 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 WQAD viewers.

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

New Kitchen WQAD Moline, ILThe 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! It also gives you an idea of what you can see in your own home!

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. To learn more about the kitchen remodel – click on the video included in this blog!

A Totally Fresh Look in the Quad Cities

Quad Cities Kitchen RemodelThe first before and after on our first episode is a fresh look for an outdated kitchen.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. 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.

Gone are the old laminate countertops, replaced with a beautiful granite countertop. 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!

A Big Reveal – Geneseo, IL

Image 38We 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
issue was to make a more functional use of the space. It has been updated with cherry
kitchen cabinets and granite countertops. The new hardwood floors are stunning and run
through the kitchen and dinning 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. There is a wonderful backdoor bench area right inside the garage entry. What a great place to entry the home and get items stored right away before you go any further. 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. There is even a USB outlet for charging phones and other devices.
