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.
The trend we are seeing is that the kitchen is the hub of the home for our clients. It’s where families gather not only to prepare meals, but where children do their homework, adults pay bills and everyone watches television and entertains.
At Pulp Design Studios, we’ve been designing kitchens for our clients with two kitchen islands that are spacious, full of purposeful storage, and great for entertaining.
Decide where you want your guests to look by choosing a focal point and illuminating it. Don't direct the eye toward a sink area, for instance, where visitors might get a view of your dirty dishes. Here, the Heirloom Pendant is used to light a charming prep area to the side of the kitchen.
