In designing kitchens, I believe in the adage of form follows function. It is important to keep both in mind with every design. A number of factors came into play with this kitchen design. The family needed to be able to store their children's toys. The husband is also an avid cook and he wanted easy access to his various books. The island storage was the perfect place for keeping the family organized.
The concealed hood alleviates these two issues. Aesthetically, having the hood integrated into the cabinetry creates a streamlined look with no interruption to the eye. You have the ability to add architectural elements for interest as well. For instance, this one is paneled but we also added a curve. The end result provides a functional and beautiful option.
