Cherry Cabinets with Creme Hood?

TheCoonsFamilyFebruary 4, 2014

My cabinets are cherry and the island is off white. I was thinking of doing a range hood in the off white. I also want to put 12"H cabinets (with glass doors) above the other cabinets to make it all even. I don't know if it would look right, and how I would match up the crown molding to be put in.

Also, my husband and I can not agree on pull and knobs - primarily because they are so expensive. I don't know where to put them on each cabinet and how to size the pulls on each cabinet.

I would be extremely grateful for help and pictures. I'm so stuck, and we are a military family on quite a budget. We build the cabinets and everything ourselves, I designed it so far...I do love it! It's been a year without hardware and a range hood. Also, we will eventually be putting a SS Fridge and a oven/Microwave In the cabinet with the microwave.

Thanks so much!

I have similar two tone cabinetry, cherry with a rye finish for the base cabinets and maple painted in a very pale taupe color for the wall cabinets. Because the pantry is cherry, we decided to do the wall cabinet to the right in cherry also, which unfortunately won't be here until next week, but you can see how the painted hood looks next to the cherry pantry.

You need to take down the adjacent cabinets to the hood area to make them smaller. Wood hoods in a different color are more of a "presence" and need more visual space than you have left for them. In addition, a 30" range usually only satisfies the fire code with a 36" wood hood above it because of the combustible nature of wood. Even with an insert, the wood is directly above the heat unless the hood is wider to let the metal be fully above the heat. Visually, if the hood is not too complicated, a 36" hood in an off white should be fine. The more complex the design, the more weight it has, and the larger amount of space it needs.

Hold on. You guys made all this yourself! Oh, my. I am so impressed with how gorgeous they are. I'm trying myself, but it's very slow going because I, well, let's say I'm learning from trial and error. :)

Just beautiful.
Do you really need a big hood? I think the white would be nice, but yes, it would be a serious eye catcher. I'd be more inclined to have something that blended in a bit more. You have all the choices in the world, since you're making this yourself!

I am so impressed with your cabinets! They are so pretty. I am going to agree with the other posters and say that going with a different color hood would really be an eye catcher, but I don't think you have the space. I think it looks great when done in a different material like cast stone, but if this is a wood hood, I think it will look better to just match the cabinets. You will probably need to do a little research on whether or not there needs to be some modification to your existing cabinets. Good luck.
