Mixing metals is a great way to add visual interest, particularly in a kitchen. When you mix metals, like bronze and brass, you are creating depth. This works so well in a kitchen because you have the opportunity to use different finishes in your plumbing, hardware, and lighting. A matte finish combined with a shiny one creates a great balance. Strive for a coordinated look rather than a matchy-matchy one and the end result will be far more interesting than selecting the same finish throughout.
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.
