Range Hoods Take Center Stage in Today’s Kitchens


While the bedroom may still win for where we spend the most time each day, kitchens are picking up the pace as homeowners are focusing on stylish renovations to this important space in the home. One way to add function and some flair to the kitchen is with a unique range hood. Think of the range hood as an opportunity to blend a necessary kitchen element with style.  


The option for range hoods are filled with possibilities and it creates an opportunity to add an architecturally interesting feature to your kitchen.  



  • Metals such as copper, zinc or and pewter are increasing in popularity.
  • Wrought iron, handcrafted with a distinctive look including rivets and banding is bold.
  • Stainless Steel adds a polished and classic look to the space.
  • A decorative wood cover custom-built to match the cabinetry blends the hood seamlessly into the kitchen setting.
  • Hoods may be enclosed with plaster making a statement with the customization of decorative ceramic tiles.


Style Tips:

  • Modern range hoods have halogen and LED lights.
  • Independent hoods can accommodate 10+ foot ceiling heights to make a statement.
  • A backsplash adds color and the finishing touch to make the range hood the focal point.



The once merely functional range hood now represents an opportunity to play up your style in the kitchen. Every kitchen needs a hood, however the material and accessories can make a difference when you’re cooking!
