Types of Hoods
If you thought that there was only one type of hood for you to choose from, you're wrong, but in the best way. Having hood options gives you the ability to truly choose a look that will work well within the dream that you have in your head when it comes to renovating your kitchen.
While most stovetops are against the wall, the island hood is somewhat of a floating hood.
It seems to be floating because it's hanging over the island where the stovetop is present. This type of hood uses a chimney-like system when removing the fumes from the air while you're cooking.

If you don't have kitchen cabinets surrounding your kitchen wall where the stovetop is, a chimney hood will work for you. This type of hood is attached directly to the wall.
Depending on how you want things to look, you could have the hood reach completely to the ceiling, or you could design it to have the same look and texture as the other cabinets in your kitchen.
Some people prefer the hood to be completely hidden. If that's the case, the concealed hood would be the best option for you. A concealed hood will be installed so that it's hidden by hanging cabinets.
This type of hood is useful when you need to make the most of your kitchen space, and it also offers the opportunity for more storage when you don't have as much.
This is when you can truly take the customization of your hood to the next level! A mantle hood gives you the ability to design a hood that fits in with the other design elements in your kitchen.
A mantle gives you the freedom to make the hood a key component of your kitchen renovation without having to sacrifice any piece of the overall design. Keep in mind this hood type gives you design freedom that you might not get with the other types of hoods that we've featured above.

This type of hood isn't the typical hood you're used to seeing because it is connected to the stovetop's back. While some people don't consider this to actually be a range because of the way that it's been installed on the stovetop, it is, in fact, a hood.
This is the best option if you're a minimalist and enjoy being able to put something away when it's not being used.
Range Hood Ideas
Now that you know what type of hood you're going to use, the next thing you need to think about is the hood's design. Do you want to keep things simple? Or are you looking to truly make a statement with a unique range hood design?
Regardless of the type of hood that you choose, these ideas will help you to solidify the next step in your renovation plans.
Do you love uniformity when it comes to your appliances? Then you're going to love this stainless steel hood idea. While keeping the hood stainless steel doesn't seem all that exciting, it's all about the backsplash with this look.
When you keep the hood simple, it gives you the freedom to go crazy with the backsplash you use. You could choose a vibrant color or try out a fun and exciting pattern.
The colors and the pattern that you use will further help the hood and the stove area pop as the main attraction of the kitchen. Stainless steel gives a clean and sleek look to the kitchen while keeping things modern.
Commonly you'll see range hood ideas that feature a smaller hood, but we think that there are times where a larger hood is the way to go. With this idea, we are thinking more so about the functionality of things.
If you aren't a fan of hearing the kitchen hood's hum, a bigger hood would be the best option for you. A larger hood means that the fans are working more efficiently and at a slower speed.
Because of this, the noise that is usually made by the hood will be reduced drastically. And a wider range makes the kitchen space appear more open and spacious, which is helpful in smaller kitchens.
There's something about a black range hood that truly brings new meaning to modernism.
A black range hood will stand out without overwhelming all the other kitchen elements. If the kitchen is an area that you spend a lot of time in when entertaining, you're going to love the way your hood becomes the topic of conversation during your next dinner party.
Some of us enjoy the simpler things in life, and for some, that means going with a rustic design. A rustic hood will blend in with your farm chic aesthetic and create a beautifully finished hood.
There are tons of directions that you can take a rustic design in without sacrificing the simplicity of the overall design. You could even use various colors on this hood and remain within the rustic theme you're looking for.
DESIGN TIP: Recreate this look by staining one of our affordable unfinished arched hoods!
Industrial design is making a comeback right now, and rightfully so. There's something refined and beautiful about the architecture that comes with anything industrial.
If you choose the industrial route for your hood design, consider the backsplash you're going to use. You might want to select an exposed brick backsplash to further add to the industrial feel of your hood.
Or you might want to push the boundaries of the industrial aesthetic and play around with some contrasting colors or patterns. If you're not a fan of using color or pattern on your hood, you can always have the hood carved to your liking.
A custom carved hood allows you to design a hood with the right amount of drama without being too overbearing and without sacrificing the hood's functionality.
Go For Drama
If the hood is going to be the center point that draws the eye of everyone that enters your kitchen, then you might want to bring the drama. When creating drama in the kitchen, you'll want to consider painting your hood a color that stands out.
Or, if you've already selected a color that's used throughout the kitchen, we recommend choosing a pattern to accentuate the hood. There's something about using a tiled pattern to complete the kitchen renovation.
DESIGN TIP: Create your own custom-colored hood by painting one of our unfinished range hoods.
