Design Tip Tuesday: Vent Hoods
Updated: Mar 19
The age of one vent hood option or doing a microwave vent is in the past and a new age of design is in. When designing your kitchen you want it to be perfect, that includes the range hood because it can be a big eye sore if it's a last minute choice and it was a cheap alternative. We no longer only have to do a stainless steel vent hood we are now able to do tile, wood, or (keeping within the stainless steel look) with an elevated design.
Example of a simple range hood but looks amazing!
Different Style Vent Hoods
A simple stainless steel range hood isn't necessarily a bad thing! However, if you can, not go a step further and get an amazing designed hood for only slightly more and better yet it'll tie your kitchen together like you wouldn't believe making this renovation worth it! A stainless look could have a hammered effect, rivets, or be curved and so much more!
Sometime the layout of a kitchen only allows for the range to be put into the island. Adding a range hood hanging in the middle of your ceiling obstructing your view isn't the most ideal. Downdrafts pushes the air across the cooking surface and drawing smoke, steam and grease down through a filter and into a duct that carries it beneath the floor or along the cabinet kick space and outside your home. Aka, no obstruction!
A wood vent hood adds an elevated touch of design to your kitchen because it isn't in everyone's home! When doing a wood vent hood you can design it however you want as long as the vent insert fits. You can have different stains, engravings, texture, etc. This is a great place to match the island kitchen cabinetry or a different stain from a close by room to tie the spaces together. It will be slightly more expensive however, can be worth it!
Tile isn't again always used but adds a big wow factor. You can do a simple design based off of your backsplash or you can do something crazy and fun with color, textures, or design layouts.
