Transform the Look of Your Kitchen with a Range Hood

Distinctive hood designs — in reclaimed barn wood, zinc, copper and more — are transforming the look of kitchens

lundgrenThe exhaust system installed above ranges and cooktops is probably not what most kitchen design or renovation dreams are made of. However, ventilating away smells, steam and heat created during cooking is an important ingredient of any kitchen with the design of the hood itself presenting a great opportunity to elevate a kitchen’s style. From classic to industrial, fabricated from a wide range of materials, kitchen hoods can have a big impact on the overall look and feel of the room. If a kitchen design or renovation is in your future, here are some ideas to discuss with your designer.

When envisioning kitchen hoods the typical stainless steel model with straight lines and a chimney is just one of many possibilities. With a hood liner encasing the necessary mechanics, your design options open wide. Here the hood was custom made from wood with a charming cut scallop detail, painted a shade similar to surrounding cabinets.
