Tour a Remodeled Kitchen and a Granite Warehouse

Welcome to Episode 5 of the Village Home Show! In this episode of our show we are excited to share with you the wonderful before and after story of a kitchen we remodeled in Rock Island, Illinois. It features a stunning glass backsplash and some amazing, rich wood you are sure to love. Then we take a trip to Epic Stone in Davenport, IA to give you a tour of their location and all the wonderful options they have for natural stone countertops. We are then visited by a lighting expert who shows us some L.E.D. lighting systems featured in many of our kitchens, including the set at WQAD!

Rich Woods & Glass Backsplash Make this New Rock Island Kitchen Shine

Village Home Stores was able to help take a cramped kitchen to a dazzling new level with our full project management from start to finish. The family needed more space and a load of style. The new kitchen is so dramatic and stunning and of course, you will notice the cabinetry right away. The kitchen may have a cherry look, but it is in fact a birch wood with a burgundy stain applied.

It is a rich look at a fraction of the cost. Cambria quartz countertops with a beautiful glass subway tile backsplash in a coordinating color. The countertop look is clean and traditional, but also very fresh and new. The diode under cabinet lighting really sets things off.

Diode L.E.D. Lighting For Tour Quad Cities Home

L.E.D. stands for light emitting diode and L.E.D. lighting doesn’t emit as much heat, uses less energy than standard lighting, and has a longer life span. You can use this type of lighting under cabinets, above toekicks, outdoors, and even under water. You can also get other colors to really change things up. Lighting Expert Keri Swanberg answers our questions about this product and shares examples of installed spaces that use it.
