20 ideas for designing a modern kitchen hood

Whether the homeowner loves to cook or not, the kitchen always ends up with a beautiful design. We are not sure if this is true for everyone but many people consider the kitchen to be a mirror of one’s attitude towards cleanliness. Once a kitchen is clean, it shows that the person living in it has great respect for health and sanitation. Apart from keeping everything clean, the kitchen also needs to be well organized and of course beautifully designed. All the features in a kitchen have a huge impact on the appearance of your kitchen, just like a range hood.

Some people may think that a range hood is only there for its function. Although the main reason for adding a range hood to a kitchen is to eliminate fumes, airborne grease, odors, heat, smoke, combustion products, and steam, it can add some beauty to your kitchen. This helps filter the air during cooking through a mechanical fan and charcoal filter inside. But apart from that, a range hood can add appeal to your kitchen especially if it has a similar design to the ones on this list. Take a look at the modern kitchens below and you will undoubtedly envy the hood designs found in these spaces.
