When we were selecting finishes for our home, I knew I wanted a kitchen hood vent with wood trim. It provides some warmth to our (close to) all white kitchen. It was quite the process though as it was first painted grey to match our island, then white, then finally replaced with a custom stained trim and I was finally satisfied!
Kitchen Hood Vents with Wood Trim
There are so many gorgeous options out there for every design style. A kitchen hood vent with wood trim can go with a modern farmhouse style, coastal style, contemporary, or even modern. I'll share a few different options below for inspiration.
Are you trying to decided between the two? Wooden kitchen vent hoods are definitely trending. Our previous home at a metal hood and I have to say I like the look of wood much better. The metal hood was a huge pain to clean and was always SO dusty and grimy. Our wood trimmed hood is really easy to clean and never shows any grease.
Metal hoods typically have the fan already integrated, so with a wooden hood you would need to configure it. You'll likely spend more money on a wooden hood vs. a metal hood. Metal is also typically more durable than wood.
Things to Consider
If you're looking at updating your current hood or building a new home, I would start by considering your current space (or new home). What are the design elements you already have going on. Do you have rustic wood beams on your ceiling? You could try to match the wood trim to your beams. What colors are your floors? Make sure to choose a stain that won't clash.
Which decor style goes with this type of vent? I'd say any! Our style is coastal modern, and our kitchen has mostly white accents. I add in touches of warm wood so that our kitchen isn't too stark. I love mixing in some organic pieces like vases or faux greenery to go with a wood trim hood.
Our kitchen vent hood does match our cabinets, but I don't think it's necessary. You can absolutely mix them up! A beautiful bold black vent hood with a wood trim would look amazing in a kitchen with white, beige, or natural wood cabinets.
