An Island Hood

"This kitchen is in a brand new vacation home where the clients planned to do a lot of entertaining. They wanted something impressive. The kitchen serves as a central gathering place and is located right off the entryway. The rest of the home is roomy and casual but they wanted to dress the kitchen up.


"The stainless steel hood forms a striking focal point with its heavy mass and its placement directly across from the equally dramatic window. It's such a large rectangular room that that kind of focus was needed. The stainless steel is picked up in the rest of the kitchen in the appliances and the undermount sink."
