Hood help. Server a purpose or make a Statement?!?
I uploaded our current kitchen design plan. It is almost final and it is time for us to pick out our appliances. Because of an employee discount, we are getting all GE Cafe and a GE Monogram Advantium 120 (under counter in the peninsula). The gas cooktop is 36 inch and to the left of it is a single oven installed under counter. White cabinets and soapstone countertops. For some reason I am really stuck on the hood. Our design currently shows an undercabinet 36 inch stainless hood. Probably the Zephyr Gust. It is $600 and would do the job.
But I really love the look of a barrel hood or maybe a copper hood. Please provide honest opinions about how this idea would fit in our design. If we had a range I think a hood that makes a statement would be more appropriate, but is this just me? Do people put different/fancy hoods above cooktops? If so, thoughts on having a cabinet above it?
I like the copper ones on this website:
Has anyone ordered a hood from Signature Hardware?
Thanks in advance!
