Probably just frame it out, sheetrock it and paint it the color of the wall so it disappears as much as possible.

I think I'd just build a Sheetrock box around it, maybe a little wider so it isn't so long and skinny like the hose.

I flipped your pic for you. And I think if it weren't for the plant it wouldn't be so noticeable at all. I'd paint it the wall color, myself.

Most Microwaves like yours can be converted to be a recirculating vent system that does not need the vent. Why not just make the conversion which usually just means flipping over or changing the exhaust exit. Check your user manual and eliminate the exposed vent

Likely because it not the best way to ventilate, and California is the first to enforce many code issues. But almost every manufactured over range micro has this option

Sheetrock option is best. The stove should be ventilated to the outside for best air quality inside.

Paint it the color of the wall.

If you don't want to deal with a contractor for sheet rock, here's an idea: purchase a cardboard form designed for pouring concrete footings, measure carefully and cut it to fit against the wall ( a cut slightly short of 'half' will provide enough curve towards the wall to hide the spot where the form and the wall meet). Prime and paint the form to match the wall. Done. Probably less than $30.

Why not vent it out the wall instead of the ceiling....That thing has got to be in your cupboard and taking up space....
