Range Hoods for any Style

Today’s range hood usually falls into one of two camps; it’s either a wallflower or the showpiece. Either it’s so hidden that it disappears, or the designer has chosen to embrace the opportunity to make the range hood a star focal point. Here, we’ll show you some of our favorite showstoppers, with a few more subtle looks thrown in for good measure.

Sweet and Scalloped

A custom metal range hood can be tailored to fit your overall kitchen design. Rehkamp Larson Architects took their cue from the Roper vintage stove, adding the playful scalloped hood where an ordinary style wouldn’t do.

In the Circle

Range hoods are typically rectangular, but this Portland couple wanted something unique, so they chose a round model from Franke. The Tube range hood comes in island or wall versions and looks more like a sculpture than an appliance. 

Black Out

Black accents are everywhere these days, adding visual punch to interiors in all parts of the home. Seen on AtticMag, this kitchen features a large black range hood, which mirrors the dark floor while standing out against the white cabinets, walls, and appliances.

Tick Tock

Time to get cooking with this combination kitchen clock and range hood. The Ora hood by Barriviera Cucina tells time while quietly and efficiently venting cooking fumes.

Stainless and Proud

Anik Pearson’s ship-shape kitchen design utilizes heavy-duty stainless steel touches throughout, even on such details as cabinet pulls, frames, and hinges. It’s no wonder she chose a stainless steel hood from Vent-a-Hood that effortlessly blends right in, hiding in plain sight.

Double Duty

Sometimes it’s best if the range hood plays double duty, in this case as an overhead light. Best by Broan has developed the Sorpresa Sphera, a hood and light fixture in one. The design lacks the usual industrial trappings, and its svelte profile makes it a shoe-in for ultra sleek kitchens.

Trompe l'Oeil

With a bit of clever planning, a range hood can become a seamless part of the wall in your kitchen. Here, the paneling and trim continue over the hood insert, allowing the appliance to recede into the woodwork.

Electric Slide

A J Madison

A slide-out range hood instantly transforms from a flush cabinet to an active ventilator with a press of a button. GE and Faber both offer great options available online through AJ Madison.

Pop Art

Andy Warhol’s soup can art makes its debut on the range hood. Bastille Metal Works creates 100% customizable slip-cast range hood designs in a wide variety of materials and styles.
