An essential partner to your range, kitchen hood vents are workhorses that help to keep the air in your house clean. If you’ve ever forgotten to turn on the fan while cooking up your favorite seafood, you’re likely familiar with the importance of strong ventilation in the kitchen. With ranges becoming larger and commercially designed, proper ventilation has become an increasingly important issue. Picking the right hood requires you to take into account the power of your range but also the style choice for your kitchen.
While range hoods are a practical necessity, the variety of available looks has never been better! Whether you prefer a plain utilitarian stainless steel, an insert completely camouflaged behind beautifully painted cabinetry, an artisan-made copper chimney, or a modern glass unit, there’s a style that will work for you.
Decorative range hoods are often the focal point of the kitchen and truly become eye-catching statement pieces making your kitchen complete. Custom hoods can come in an array of colors, made from a variety of materials, including wood and metals. The only thing holding you back when it comes to your new range hood is your imagination. You imagine it, we design it.
Let your imagination run wild when designing your custom range hood. Here are a few ideas from recent kitchen remodels:
Wood Shiplap Range Hoods
Arguably the most popular current range hood design trend is the shiplap chimney range hood. Whether you’re looking for a rustic or modern farmhouse design, there is a shiplap style for you. Most manufactures provide shiplap hood range options that come in a variety of finishing options.
Concealed Range Hood
Perhaps you prefer more clean lines in your kitchen or gravitate towards a contemporary look. A concealed range hood allows you to conceal or hide your range hood within your cabinetry while still extracting cooking odors and vapors outdoors.
Metal Range Hood
Incorporating metals in your range hood can really make a statement. Custom range hoods can come in a variety of materials like brass, copper, steel, stainless or zinc. Adding rivets, strapping or nails can bring even more visual interest to your kitchen.
