Do you think a local metal artisan could make this fan??
We live in Ontario, Canada and want to buy/or have built a beautiful island hood in a powder coated colour with stainless decorative bands something like the image below (but with different base colour with no expensive copper). BTW our ceilings are only 8 feet and we only need to vent a 30 inch induction cooktop.
I know fan inserts can be bought and then fan shells can be built with wood cabinetry. Has anyone tried hiring an artistic metal worker to build the vent shell? If so, how did it turn out? Was the price reasonable? We need to find a way to build that fan but keep the cost down to 3500 max for the complete fan (insert and outer hood).
Lastly, if I do get a powdered coated fan with stainless trim like I am hoping to get, what colour should I use for the main part of the fan? My perimeter cabinets are to be ivory and the island will be chocolate brown. I have not chosen the counter, but was hoping to find something that was more grey but was not brown. I don't know about wall colour yet. Any suggestions on colour for the vent (or even wall colour)?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts and help you might be able to provide.
