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.
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.
