Chef’s kitchen with a cabinet matching hood

Classic Strapped Moulding Hood shown above

Range Hoods are generally thought of as having only one option, stainless steel and curved glass, or some version of that. Many homeowners think of them as a mechanical way to evacuate smoke and odors, and they certainly do that. But they are much more, as they can be an integral part of a kitchen cabinet design with a color and style identical to the cabinets, and with a craftsman’s flare, even in RTA (ready-to-assemble) cabinets.

When you have a more traditional kitchen, like a framed Shaker style cabinet design, it is best to have the warm look and feel of a matching cabinet. It is less industrial looking and reminds one of Grandma’s kitchen growing up. You can almost smell the freshly baked bread and hot soup on the stove. Mmmm…

Dark cabinets can add contrast that brightens your countertops and appliances

Our Shaker Cinder cabinets add a rich and dramatic focus. Accented with lighter countertops, backsplash and flooring gives the space a bright and cheery feel.

But if that is not you, and you want your kitchen to be as bold as you are, then we have a solution in our Shaker Cinder color option. Think about this…
