Custom Range Hoods: A Must-Have In Beautiful Kitchen Designs
If you’re re-designing your kitchen or updating your kitchen design, a custom range hood is something you must consider.
With custom kitchen design taking center stage in home design, a statement piece is vital to creating the “wow factor” that sets your kitchen apart. So why do we believe a custom range hood is THAT statement piece? Let’s look at the trends in kitchen design to find out.
You’re probably not making a massive statement in kitchen design with color. Neutral tones, whites and grays are dominating the transitional kitchen color palette. The same goes for backsplash and wall tile, which are trending heavily towards popular, neutrally-based tones of subway tile. But it’s still possible to stand out in a chic, sleek transitional kitchen without using an outlandish color scheme…
Would you just look at that stunning custom range hood? The range hood was designed by RangeCraft USA, and utilized in a transitional kitchen design by Peter Salerno Inc. (RangeCraft’s design was requested halfway around the world, by kitchen design clients in Moscow!)
Custom range hoods are often considered “too DIY” or “too opulent” to be utilized in transitional kitchen design. That’s simply not true. Master craftsmen like those at RangeCraft consistently produce beautiful, unique, to-order custom range hoods for transitional kitchens that are as sleek as they are efficient and useful. (Check out the one below!)
That’s not to say that custom range hoods in today’s best kitchen designs can’t fit into opulent, luxury traditional kitchen designs. The example below (in an award-winning Peter Salerno Inc. traditional kitchen) uses reclaimed tin to dramatic effect. After all, it takes a lot to be a focal point in a kitchen that features a hand-carved mirrored ceiling, massive twin kitchen islands, crystal chandelier and custom handcrafted “Maestro Rosolino” cabinetry. And yet, the reclaimed tin (which is duplicated on the front of the kitchen’s refrigerator) does just that.
Of course, a quality custom range hood is about function as much as form. If your range hood isn’t performing at an exceptional level, then it doesn’t matter how beautiful yours is – you risk exposure to harmful smoke and vapors. As the official RangeCraft website explains, the marriage of form and function is the trademark of the world’s best range hoods:
A top quality range hood is an essential part of a well-designed high-end kitchen because it will help to protect your cabinetry, flooring, countertops and appliances. RangeCraft Range Hoods are truly a functional work of design art. The Jewel of the Kitchen, it also removes unwanted cooking smoke and vapors quickly and quietly. (RangeCraft offers super quiet internal fans that are less noisy than a quiet refrigerator.) Many customers choose a RangeCraft Hood first and then design their cabinetry and accessories around the hood as the focal point.
