With the last few kitchen renovations I have done, we have opted for a concealed hood. There are a couple of functional reasons why. The projection and angle on a lot of hoods bump into taller family members while cooking, and keeping the hood clean is another consideration.
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.
