If you go to houzz "photos" under "Kitchen", "Traditional Style" then type in "Copper Hood" you can scroll thru tons of photos of cool hood ideas!

hd, I think I would ask your client..."Why the copper?". It's always so important to understand your client's frame of mind and history. Sometimes they make requests that are not relevant to the actual project. Personally, I'm not in the "copper" camp. Don't know why except maybe it's just damned difficult to work with and once you do, I'm not sure what is ultimately achieved. Just my opinion...

Good point Karen, find out what's "driving" the design decision! With the right Kitchen theme copper can work. We did a rustic Tahoe Lodge and I had the local blacksmith texture the copper to get a "hammered" finish then we banded it in forged iron frame! It really captured the customers vision of an English Hunting Lodge! So, yes make sure the customer is planning this for a reason because the range hood makes a "statement" in the Kitchen!
