Another great idea here is to place the family room right next to the kitchen so that you can turn the kitchen island with open shelves into your small, personal library wall as well! Instead of cookbooks, fill these empty shelves with your personal book collection and create a cozy reading nook in the family room to make the most of it. Since kitchens in open plan living areas are often the social zones and heart and soul of the home, this makes perfect sense ergonomically as well.
Take advantage of being able to use the space above the island by adding suspended storage, where you can display a matching pan collection or your best stemware. You can also experiment with lighting elements, or if you’ve decided to install a stovetop with overhead venting you can use the space for the range hood.
Finding the right range hood is not just about style. You also have to consider other aspects. You need to find the one that works best for your kitchen and that suits the way you cook. You must first think of its functionality and then you must also make sure it looks good in the kitchen. There are multiple options to take into consideration so analyze them all before you make a decision.
