RangeCraft Provides Custom Range Hood Design and Innovation

RangeCraft Provides Custom Range Hood Design and Innovation

We love great kitchen design. Which is why we love RangeCraft Hoods.

The range hood for your kitchen’s cooking area is one of the most overlooked elements in most kitchen designs. Instead of seeing it as just a ‘necessary piece of hardware’, why not treat it as an appliance you can customize to your own unique kitchen design and taste?

That’s the mantra of RangeCraft Custom Range Hoods. Based out of Fair Lawn, New Jersey, RangeCraft has developed a reputation over the last 3 decades of quality, customized range hood design. Their commitment to excellence and versatility in design makes RangeCraft the one name our world-class kitchen design contacts keep bringing up in conversation.

From RangeCraft’s official website:

RangeCraft Manufacturing is well known by discerning buyers for its popular product line of Made-to-Order range hoods. Skilled artisans, trained by Master Coppersmiths, create every custom designed range hood, one at a time. Superior craftsmanship and attention to detail with respect to welding, rivets, bands, tight joints and rounded corners, have created the strong “top of the line” reputation that separates RangeCraft from the competition. RangeCraft maintains its standard of excellence with state of the art production machinery to insure the finest quality and selection of Range Hoods and Universal Inserts for kitchen ventilation.

We love RangeCraft’s adventurous spirit in terms of tackling any and all challenges. Recently, RangeCraft designed a custom range hood that ended up in a world-class kitchen in Moscow, in a design created by award-winning Peter Salerno Inc., also of New Jersey.

RangeCraft’s partnerships don’t simply extend to world-class kitchen designers. In 2016, they cemented an exclusive agreement with Swarovski Crystal to build even further luxury and greater options to their custom range hood designs.

RangeCraft was recently a featured exhibitor at KBIS 2018 in Florida, showing off some awe-inspiring custom range hood designs. We absolutely fell in love with the “Submarine Hood” – and the picture below should say all you need to know about why!

The function of a range hood is essential to keeping a clean, safe kitchen for you and your loved ones. RangeCraft marries that function with exquisite form to turn a simple appliance into a work of art. It’s no wonder that so many award-winning kitchen designers around the United States (and the world) turn to Ramona Panus and her team for range hood solutions.

Why Should You Choose a Custom Range Hood For Your Kitchen?

Why Should You Choose a Custom Range Hood For Your Kitchen?

You’re ready to create or update the custom kitchen design of your dreams. Working with the very best kitchen designers (like 30-time national award winner Peter Salerno Inc.), you’ve settled on the finest luxury appliances, the perfect counter surface and backsplash, statement lighting, and a gorgeous kitchen island.

Using reclaimed tin in kitchen designs: just one way Peter Salerno Inc. creates the custom range hood of your dreams.

But what will you do to take your dream kitchen to the next level? What will make your kitchen the one-of-a-kind custom creation that will truly make it the envy of your guests?

Experts like Peter Salerno, CMKBD, agree that a custom range hood for your cooktop and range is the perfect statement piece to adorn any truly unique kitchen design.

“The hood and refrigerator are key elements in creating the ultimate kitchen,” Peter Salerno Inc. notes. “We have our own designs custom-made to our exact specifications so each of our clients has one-of-a-kind pieces, made right here in New Jersey.”

A custom range hood, when created masterfully, reflects the taste and personal style of the kitchen’s owner while adding a tone of elegance and unique backstory to your kitchen.

Imagine being able to tell your family, friends and guests that your range hood is made from reclaimed tin collected from classic gas stations along Route 66. Think about the elegant, opulent story your kitchen will tell if your range hood is custom-made from materials taken from a speakeasy once owned by Al Capone or an historic jazz club in New Orleans.

Your kitchen can tell these stories with its very own custom range hood, designed exclusively for you by Peter Salerno Inc. and its network of master craftsmen and artisans. Working with its own staff of skilled artisans, as well as industry leaders and innovators like Rangecraft, Peter Salerno Inc. will create a state-of-the-art, unique range hood for your kitchen that is both fully functional and truly one-of-a-kind.

Every year, the annual KBIS conference is THE foremost week of design in North America, and the 2017 KBIS conference was no exception. From January 10-12, 2017, KBIS 2017 took over Orlando with stellar design exhibits, contests, seminars and the largest array of design industry exhibitors North America will see all year.

Thanks to our friends at Peter Salerno Inc. (winners of more North American design awards than anyone since 2002, and NKBA members), we’re able to bring you exclusive photographs from INSIDE the KBIS 2017 Convention! 

KBIS 2017: The KBIS NeXT Stage

A major highlight of this year’s conference was the KBIS NeXT Stage, presented by the NKBA and sponsored by HomeAdvisor. The KBIS NeXT Stage showcased the industry’s latest trends and insights shared by leading kitchen and bath experts.

One of KBIS NeXT’s prominent features was the NKBA 30 Under 30 presentation, featuring a crop of outstanding home, kitchen, and bath design professionals under 30 from across North America. By the way – congratulations to Peter Salerno Inc.’s Anthony Michael Salerno for being one of this year’s 30 Under 30!

KBIS 2017: Appliance Trends, La Cornue + Rangecraft

We also LOVE the new appliance trends at KBIS 2017 – most notably, what La Cornue had to offer. The featured color of La Cornue range on the KBIS Conference floor was a true jaw-dropper and the talk of many design exhibitors and attendees.

It was also great to see Rangecraft featured so prominently. Makers of fine custom range hoods from a diverse assortment of materials, Rangecraft is (in our opinion) an “IT” company to watch in 2017. If you love the concept of a custom range hood (especially stainless steel) in your home or professional kitchen, Rangecraft is certainly a brand to keep in mind.

Summer 2016 Design Tips & Trends from Design NJ Magazine

A Return to Historic Homes

“In our disposable age when the “new” is almost always considered good and many historic houses have been lost to the wrecking ball, antiques can play an ever more important role in our homes,” Design NJ writer Robin Amster explains in the latest issue of Design New Jersey.

Robin’s point is astute and hits on a touch point for Summer 2016 style and design – sometimes, a return to historic home design is the best option. We know – the old cliche goes, “Nothing gold can stay”. But if you own something gold, why not hold it that way for as long as possible?

Don’t be afraid to keep your historic or classic home (or rooms within your home) as they are if you love them. There are always design options to modernize the space without innately changing what it is, through accessories, color scheme, etc.

Clean White Kitchen Design with Wood Accents

Design New Jersey Magazine features the very best in award-winning kitchen, bath and whole home design from just about everywhere – but primarily from in and around the New Jersey area. As such, it’s pretty common to see award-winning designers like Peter Salerno Inc. pop up in their pages and on their social media.
