Adding a hood to your kitchen can be one of the best and easiest ways to add drama, interest, texture, and depth to the space. Today, we have compiled some of our favorite kitchen hoods for your viewing pleasure. ;) Hoods can be ready-made and bought online or from a local retailer OR can be custom-made in anything from wood to stone to metal, and probably a million other materials in between. There really is no limit here and it an be a fun, creative part of the overall kitchen design. As you all know, kitchens are the heart of the home in my opinion and therefore are one of my favorite spaces to design. Check out these images below and let us know your thoughts. Which style is your favorite?

A metal hood may be one of my favorites. I love the contrast against the wood cabinets and love the endless possibilities when it comes to finishes, styles, and added details such as banding and rivets. You can also find faux metal hoods and finishes that create a very realistic look and are more budget-friendly.
These hoods are made of wood and can be clean-lined and simple or curved and ornate. You can finish them in the same color as your surrounding cabinets or something different to add an accent to the space. You can also mix the wood finishes, such as one of the examples shown below that is clad in shiplap with a reclaimed wood border detail.
Next up is a stone hood, yes stone! This hood is clad in a beautiful, veined stone that matches the island and countertops. It brings such a pop to the space against the subway tile backsplash, while remaining clean, simple, and angular.
Here are a few examples of great ready-made stainless steel hoods that can be easily sourced online or in stores. They are usually a very cost-effective option and will coordinate beautifully with your appliances, while style bringing that style and edge to the space... and of course function too! ;)
Last, but not least, would be a completely custom hood that doesn't necessarily look like your standard hood in size or shape. Below are a couple examples of this. I am absolutely loving the first image with the dark, clean-lined, metal hood that spans all the way up to the vaulted ceiling and creates an architectural statement. That is followed up by a more farmhouse look with a stone hearth looking wall that encompasses the cooktop/range and hood, as well as the surrounding countertop surfaces, which is then lined with a beautiful reclaimed wood beam spanning from side to side and playing off the beautiful ceiling details. It's so warm and inviting that even I may want to do a little cooking in that space! ;)
