Design Trend: 3 Styles of Statement Hoods

So much more than a source of ventilation, hoods have become a focal point and a design statement in trendsetting kitchens. Various hood styles reflect all kinds of kitchens – from farmhouse to traditional to modern. 

Minimalist

Combining fashionable looks with fully concealed ventilation pair well in the current minimalist style trend. Many of these hoods are a seamless fit into the style aesthetic of a kitchen, designed to mimic a light fixture or an otherwise concealed ventilation source moonlighting as a focal point. From another standpoint, a simple box frame style built to hide the hood makes a minimalist statement as well. It gives a clean, polished look to a modern kitchen. 

Wood

Wood hoods can be decorative or simple, a raw finish, painted to match the cabinetry or contrasting to make a statement. They can lend to a variety of styles depending on their treatment. 

Metal

Stainless steel is a very common finish for range hoods, but we’re seeing a rise in the popularity of other metals, such as brass and copper. These beautiful finishes tie in well with matching metal cabinetry hardware or range detailing.
