Once a popular kitchen fad, stainless steel range hoods are quickly deteriorating in popularity as smooth and sleek kitchen design continues to grow. These large range hoods contrast the streamlined look and are now being concealed within the cabinetry or walls to keep with the modern visual appeal of kitchens today. With so many options for design, don’t be afraid to get creative when covering your vent hood.
For many, the vent hood is a disruptive element in the design of their kitchen. Especially when within the cabinetry, a vent hood interrupts the flow of the cabinets and can often be seen as an eyesore. One of the easiest ways to fix this problem is by creating a cover for your vent hood that not only completely conceals it, but also doubles as a decorative element and allows for the seamless cabinetry design you desire.
Visual appeal and practicality are critical when deciding whether or not to implement a new element into your kitchen. Too often when considering new kitchen designs something is beautiful but offers no benefit, or is feasible but clashes. What makes this trend so great is how simply it does both. Vent hoods, once covered, can be used as cabinetry, shelving or general storage which can be beneficial for those with smaller kitchens where clutter and storage is always a problem. It also eliminates the eyesore effect and helps focus your attention on the decorative elements and design of the kitchen rather than the large contrasting appliance itself.
