Three Stylish Range Hoods

Range hoods go far beyond function. They bring a sculptural element to your kitchen that can be customized to suit any style of décor. As a designer, I love exploring the wide variety of shapes and materials such as brass, copper, gold, black, white and even wood-tone hoods. Some hoods are integrated into the cabinetry, where they disappear from view.

Black and White

To juxtapose with the white and gray elements in this client’s kitchen, above, I pulled the black tone of the range and cabinet knobs and cast iron grates into a dramatic metal hood, which has diamond-shaped trim and corner rivets. While the hood is eye-catching, it highlights the intricate tile wall and backsplash behind the range.

Focal Point

When choosing a range hood, consider whether you want it to be the focal point of the room or blend into the décor. In this sky-high kitchen from countryliving.com, the hood is definitely the star of the show. The rows of brass strips bring an architectural feeling that is juxtaposed against the quieter elements – light wood island, white cabinetry and white walls. Notice how the faucet on the island subtly picks up the tone of the hood?

Texas-Sized Hood

I custom designed this Texas-sized bronze range hood for clients who live outside of Dallas. The brushed gold, riveted trim was inspired by the gorgeous La Cornue range and the broken-glass wall panels.

Functional AND beautiful. That’s a luxurious combination.
