Custom Built Rangehoods

I recently received an email from Liz at House Logic if they could feature my custom built rangehood in an article they were writing.  The article was published last week and reminded me of where I drew my inspiration from when designing my kitchen rangehood.

You can read the article here.

If you have been reading here for a while you will know that I designed and planned our kitchen, had it built by a cabinet maker, sourced all the appliances and extras (or used what we already had) and then hand painted the cabinetry - Phil painted the walls.  It was a HUGE job but something I am extremely proud of and just love.  

We made the carcass for the rangehood from MDF - it was very simple to do. Inside I have a concealed Ilve rangehood that is ducted up to the ceiling and out the roof cavity.

I spent a long time planning this kitchen. We had lived in the house for around 8 years before renovating so that's a long time planning and thinking how I wanted to use the space. It was the days before Pinterest so I would just see pictures in magazines, take a photo of them and save the file or download photos from the internet. It was well before I had a blog so I didn't ever think I would be publishing them and didn't save where I found inspiration - I don't have all the sources and credit so please excuse me.


Source above is possibly The Kitchen House I think?

Do you like rangehoods like these or hidden by a cupboard or seeing the metal flue?
