Don’t miss an opportunity to make a visual impact in the kitchen with a custom hood.
No matter where a range or cooktop is located in the kitchen, a hood is necessary to vent steam, smoke and odors. Designs and materials vary as much as prices, but custom doesn’t always mean expensive. These steel wall mounted versions discretely hide vent hood liners and create a pleasant focal point without being overbearing. The seamed design of this custom scalloped-edge zinc hood, from Calhoun Design and Metalworks, resembles a canvas awning and has a playful spirit. (Calhoun Design also provided the zinc base for the island.
The skirt on this hood is also scalloped, but the basic sweep is left untouched. It’s a retro addition to this 1940’s bungalow kitchen, mixing contemporary with traditional.
Decorative hoods can incorporate both form and function. This large canopy style hood has banding, rivets and a bit of cross hatching. These simple accents collectively create a handsome kitchen centerpiece.
