Beauty Meets Function: Range Hoods

It’s often a kitchen conundrum: pick the more beautiful option or the more functional one? (Example: gorgeous marble countertops that will stain and etch easily versus more durable – but less attractive – granite.) There’s usually a happy medium (following the same example: a marble-mimicking quartzite), but there’s almost always a sacrifice on some part or another.

Except for when it comes to range hoods! They’re necessary for proper kitchen ventilation, ridding the kitchen of residual grease and cooking smells, while acting as a gorgeous statement piece. With so many styles available, there’s sure to be one (or several) that will fit your list of requirements.

If you don’t want the hood to overpower the rest of your kitchen, you can recess it or trim it to subtly match cabinetry:
