The Newest Kitchen Ventilation Trend

Ventilation hoods are a necessary (and sometimes required) appliance that is essential in extracting grease and odors from cooking spaces. As a functional piece of equipment, you can easily spot ventilation hoods in most kitchens but as contemporary designs and compact kitchens become more popular, a new ventilation hood trend begins to emerge: the hidden range hood.

Kitchens that have applied this trend have a streamlined design where range hoods are not easily found, but just because they’re not seen doesn’t mean they’re not there. Featuring the ultimate display of innovative design, this trend can be achieved in a manner of different ways.

Create a Cohesive Kitchen with Fully Integrated Appliances

Shop Fully Integrated Appliances at Elite Appliance

The kitchen is prone to regular chaos; cabinets rifled through, dishes and personal belongings strewn across the table, ingredients and prep utensils scattered on the countertops. A little disorder is to be expected however, unnecessary clutter, especially in our homes, has a way of making us feel stressed and bleary in our daily lives.

Rejuvenate yourself and your kitchen by designing a cohesive space with fully integrated appliances. Unlike built-in or overlay models which are only designed to match the surrounding cabinetry and can still be clearly identified due to exposed gaps and venting, fully integrated appliances such as refrigerators and dishwashers remove these elements and seamlessly blend in for a sleek and simple look. The flush and camouflaged installation promotes a minimalist and modern appearance that encourages the flow of the kitchen, instead of disrupting it, which make it a perfect design solution for compact spaces or open-concept kitchens.
