10 dramatic range hoods

I LOVE to cook but always use every spare inch of space I have, so, in order to maximize it, decorations are kept to a bare minimum because anything displayed gets used on a daily basis.  In a way, I prefer it this way because then people can focus on the design details like cabinetry, millwork, fabulous hardware or eye catching backsplash tile.  Flipping through some of the kitchens I’ve pinned on Pinterest, almost every one of my favorites had an amazing focal point, courtesy of a gorgeous, well-designed range hood- the true eye candy in the kitchen!  Below are ten great examples of how a fabulous range hood can create a dramatic centerpiece:

There is so much to love about this kitchen in the Sag Harbor home of interior design genius Steven Gambrel, but that fabulous steel hood steals the show and is a great use of the vaulted wall space above:

LOVE the copper range hood in this kitchen, originally featured a few years ago in Renovation Style Magazin, and how it ties in with the antique pendant lighting:

    The kitchen with the checkered floors in my favorite. All that light and timeless finishes. My favorite hoods are the 2 with wood on them. They add so much warmth.
