In a recent blog, we shared kitchen design trends for 2024. It seems that one of those trends is becoming a runaway hit with designers and homeowners. According to The Kitchn, statement range hoods are popping up everywhere. 

Designers are embracing statement range hoods as a way to bring a custom feel into the kitchen and to showcase the homeowner’s taste and personality.

If you want to opt in to this trend for your 2024 kitchen remodel, here are a couple of things to bear in mind while you plan: 

  • Pay attention to function
    Choose a quality range hood and make sure it is installed and vented properly to function as it should. 
  • Keep the size in check
    Look at the size of your kitchen and choose a range hood that suits it. A good rule of thumb is to keep the range hood about the same size as the stovetop or at most a couple of inches larger. If you go too big, it will dominate the kitchen and likely disappoint.
  • Explore materials
    There are many materials that you can use for the range hood. Look for materials that complement or contrast other elements in the space. You have many options including a variety of metals, woods or natural stone, such as granite, marble, quartz or porcelain
  • Ease of care
    If you enjoy cooking, you know that the range hood takes the brunt of spatters and grease. Choosing a material that is easy to maintain is a good decision for busy families.

At Boston Granite Exchange, we are seeing homeowners include statement range hoods in their kitchen design. Laminam Porcelain and quartz choices from The BGE Quartz Collection are excellent options for statement range hoods. They are easy to maintain and they come in a wide variety of colors and designs. Visit one of our showrooms (no appointment necessary) in Haverhill, MA or West Bridgewater, MA to see the options in person so you can find the design that reflects your taste and personality to make a statement in your new kitchen.
