Fun With Vent Hoods

Vent hoods in your kitchen serve a very important purpose. If you don’t know what it is, it’s a type of machinery that uses a fan to suction out fumes, grease, smoke, and heat while you are cooking. If you cook, you probably noticed that turning on the vent hood has become second nature, like an automatic response to when you start cooking. So, yes, vent hoods are important, but it doesn’t have to be a boring appliance, let alone, an afterthought. They can be pretty, customized to your taste, and also be a stand-out wow-factor in your kitchen. Venthoods can be covered with decorative materials such as tiles, various metals, and even specialty woods. The exterior of the vent hood is just simply a covering, while the interior holds all the machinery – so you are free to have a little fun!

A one-of-a-kind hood

This is a special one of a kind hood! The actual shape and tiling were are all done on-site. But what really gives this hood character, is the handmade Spanish-style tile carefully placed and installed to perfection. This hood provides a huge statement to the overall look!

A wood hood with a little extra flare

This hood started as a lovely wooden hood, but we wanted to add a little extra detail to it. While taking the backsplash and combining it with a 1×1 mirror mosaic, the hood instantly became a stand-out piece in the kitchen. It just takes a little to make a big design difference!

Vent hood with an antique feel

This particular kitchen gives us an antique-y feel, and the hood has very much to do with it. It stands as a major centerpiece to the kitchen and we love the statement it makes in this space. The metal covering is a stainless steel sheet formed to have a curve at the top, but the brass accents in the straps and stamps are what really sets this hood apart. It’s all about the details!

Touches of metal

A touch of metal here and a touch of metal there. Well, we gotta share another metal hood, because we just love the feel it provides to this space! With the touches of brass throughout the kitchen, the hood really ties it all together in the end. It provides a simple and classic stamp to the space without going over-board.
