Whether it’s retro or steel, the important thing is that the vintage cooker hood is stylish and utilizes the latest technology.
Over the years, kitchens have evolved from rooms dedicated to food preparation to multipurpose living spaces. Despite this, the most important room in any home is often anchored to timeless styles and memories.
Increasingly, cooker hoods are being utilized to do far more than simply extract fumes, smells and moisture. As well as protecting furnishings and our health, they’re installed to provide kitchens with striking design effects.
The traditional aesthetic, in fact, never goes out of fashion. While technology moves and the latest generation hoods become more efficient, the classic design principles remain more or less the same. A classic hood with wood finishes, for example, is ideal for a retro country-style home — giving it harmony and warmth.
There are some vintage and retro cooker hoods that are just too difficult to resist. Their intricate lines and decorative features always enhance rustic kitchens rich in masonry-based design elements. Some also offer recesses for displaying your most precious possessions — allowing you to create a shabby chic style.
