my HOOD needs help!
I'm rehabbing my house on a budget and hired the kitchen cabinet makers who my contractor recommended. Both assured me that I did not need an expensive kitchen designer and in fact those who they've worked with often ask them for their advice.
Here's my problem, what's with my hood? I did hire a designer by the hour for general things like paint and materials selection. She took one look at the hood and pointed out that it is an eyesore as it sticks out a mile without a nice slopping transition from ceiling to hood top. Also, she wants to know why they used trim to frame the front instead of a panel. Now that she pointed this out, both are terrible eye sores to me as well.
So I called my cabinet maker to discuss the hood and he was not pleased, basically stating that I approved the design and too bad. Incidentally, I just realized that his plans do not show any profiles of this entire wall, so how was I to know what the hood would look like.
I am stealing most of my design ideas from Houzz but there are so few hood photos in profile. Any recommendations?
