The Flexibility of Hood InsertsHere’s an example of the two-part option working well — only in this case, using just one of the two parts. The clients for this Atlanta kitchen originally wanted a metal range hood, but their budget didn’t allow for a metal hood. So designer Lauren Davenport Imber of Davenport Designs had a wood range hood custom-made and faux-painted to look like metal. The two vertical lines on the hood are stainless steel straps that have been riveted to the frame. Inside the hood is the insert, or blower, that gives this range hood its sucking power.

4. Wood Hood That Looks Like SteelWhen it comes to kitchen remodeling, we often have to make sacrifices to stay within a budget. But that doesn’t mean we have to completely let go of our dreams. This homeowner really wanted a metal range hood, but it just wasn’t in the budget. Instead, her designer came up with a custom hood made out of wood, and hired a painter to make it look like metal.See more of this kitchen
Did your creative range hood save you money? The clients in this home originally wanted to use a metal range hood, but that wasn’t in their budget.

Did you find a way to save money with your creative range hood? If so, we’d love to hear your stories.
Savings: The clients originally wanted a metal range hood, but their budget didn’t allow for one given the other changes to the kitchen. So Imber had a vent hood custom-made out of wood, and a faux painter painted it to look like metal. The two vertical lines on the hood are stainless steel straps riveted to the frame. “It gave the look of the metal hood but without the price point of a metal hood,” Imber says. Beneath the hood is a backsplash that’s made from the same Perla Venata quartzite as the countertop, to keep a cohesive feel in this part of the kitchen. “We didn’t want a different product because that would invite another element into the room,” Imber says. But to add interest, the backsplash has a curved cutout on each side, filled in with shiplap.Lighting: The sconces create direct task lighting that shines down on the sink. To bounce more light throughout the room, Imber installed antique mirror fronts on the vertical cabinets that flank the hood. Appliances: The Sub-Zero refrigerator, shown on the right side of this photo, is barely noticeable, thanks to paneling painted to match the cabinetry. Library sconces: Boston by E.F.
