In Top 5 Crazy Looking Range Hoods we explored range hoods that don’t really look like range hoods. These designer vent hoods look more like sculptures or lighting fixtures than kitchen fans. A new trend in interior design is to make the range hood as beautiful as the rest of the home, and these range hoods definitely accomplish that.
In this blog, we’ll go over five more range hoods that surpass expectations for kitchen aesthetics. It’s obvious the range hood isn’t just for kitchen ventilation and lighting anymore. It can become a focal point of the kitchen and showcase the homeowner’s personality and style.
First on the list is Sun, a wall mount range hood from Best. This range hood may not look like one, but it definitely is. It’s complete with 460 CFM, dishwasher-friendly grease filters and options for ducted or ductless use. This Italian design comes in black or white and the chimney is optional. This range hood will definitely make a statement in the kitchen.
Second is another Elica hood; the 70cc Evoque from Elica looks more like a bread box than a range hood, but it’s surprisingly beautiful. This range hood captures grease from three sides and comes with Perimeter Ventilation Technology, which includes increased efficiency in ventilation power. This range hood has 380 CFM and a stainless steel circular touch control. It is named the 70cc because it is constructed with two “C” shaped pieces, including one made of glass and one made of steel.
Third on the list is another Best range hood known as the Lipstick. We can’t decide if this looks like it should be in a 1950’s diner or a science-fiction spaceship. The Lipstick has 400 CFM, four speeds, delay power shut off, cleaning reminder, Heat Sentry and a whole lot of color. The red and brushed stainless steel will definitely pop on the wall. This hood can also be operated as a ducted or ductless range hood.
Wait, is that a lamp, or a range hood? The fourth vent hood on this list is the Grace by Elica. This 20” wide range hood has 300 CFM, your choice of white or black glass and a Magic Wand control. Elica has an extension kit available for this hood and a wall mounting bracket. The more we think about it, the more we think it looks like a hair dryer. However, within the context of a modern kitchen, this range hood looks very elegant.
The last range hood on this week’s list is the DA 289 Designer Wall Hood from Miele. It looks almost like a normal wall mount range hood with a tempered glass canopy, but it puts a spin on the traditional look we know. Like some of the other hoods, this one has the option to be used ducted or ductless, grease filters, a delayed power off feature and a cleaning reminder. This hood also has 625 CFM and the stainless steel design is 36” wide.
There you have it: five unique range hoods to pique your interest and inspire your home decorating creativity.
