storage_episodeOn the third episode of the Village Home Show our staff wants to share with you a before and after story of a home in Rock Island, Illinois where Village Home Stores remodeled the kitchen space. We will also be taking a trip to Lynn Center, Illinois to show you a new kitchen with tons of incredible features to help give you ideas for your kitchen. We also like to share information about useful products from time to time, and we would like to also share information from our cabinet expert from Dura Surpreme to show you all the amazing storage solutions that are included at the station kitchen we have here at WQAD TV.

For the projects featured in this episode we are going to take a special look at the kitchen designs to show you can truly make the most of the space you have in your kitchen.

Rock Island Kitchen Upgrade Allows Owners to Store More!

Main2In the Rock Island kitchen you will see in the episode that the kitchen needed more space and lots more storage for the home owners. In the original kitchen the space was just too crowded if more than one person was in the kitchen. If you look at the new kitchen design, we removed the hallway wall and a supporting header was installed above. There was now space for a two level island in the new kitchen! This adds tons of preparation space and a great place for family and guests to gather around. We removed the soffits above the existing cabinets and included new cabinetry that reaches all the way to the ceiling that also adds more storage space. The room is opened up and there is tons of great new storage available! There is a storage area that is located at the end of the old hallway that has become incorporated into the new design.

Dura Surpreme: Experts on Storage Space for Your Quad City Kitchen

durasupreme_cabinetryWe make it our goal at Village Home Stores to find the very best in cabinet space, and we want to help you know how to use it to it’s fullest. Our set at WQAD has many examples of amazing storage solutions. In this episode we welcomed John from Dura Surpreme to help us understand all our options.

We knew that the station set was going to get plenty of use by many guests. We choose to install Dura Surpreme because of their solid construction, but an added benefit is the style and usability. John showed how important it is that the drawers are solid and the guides can easily handle the weight of the content of those cabinet drawers. John’s favorite is the mixer lift-up because it keeps your mixer from taking up counterspace. There is also an amazing pullout spice rack. They come in larger sizes which are great for cleaning supplies or even canisters. Another option is a lazy susan, which is unique because it has curved doors.

Gorgeous Countryside Kitchen Remodel in Lynn Center, IL

Main Corner ViewWe worked on a beautiful kitchen remodel in Lynn Center, IL. The space has absolutely beautiful views of the countryside and the large great room it sits within. This kitchen has modern storage features, but manages to maintain the rustic look that was just right for this country living space.

We used rustic beech cabinets from Koch Classic, which is a popular choice if you want to add a rustic look to your space. It has a beautiful stone backed island that you can’t help but notice right away. The stone adds texture and interest in this beautiful remodeled kitchen. The natural stone countertops complement the space just beautifully. The stone was mined in Brazil and has a ton of character. Many options are included for storage including double bin cabinets for recycling, pull out waste baskets, lazy susans, and a large pantry. There is even a hidden TV behind pocket doors right above the refrigerator!

One really exciting feature is the brew express coffee system that is built into the kitchen wall to keep the counter clutter and cord free. This system is available from Village Home Stores and can be retrofitted into your existing kitchen space.

A rustic kitchen that is also clutter free and full of character makes for another beautiful remodel in the Quad Cities Area from Village Homes Stores. We are proud to serve the Quad Cities in Illinois and Iowa for their kitchen remodeling needs, and are one of the largest providers of materials for new homes and new home construction in the Quad Cities.
