Panel Finish Options:
#4 Brushed Finish– the most common finish with a uniform grain that perfectly matches your stainless steel appliances.
Matte Finish– a slightly more muted look where we use an orbital sander with 220 grit sandpaper to create a smooth finish.
Panel Finish Options:
Darkened Steel– we can fast-track the aging process by applying a patina that creates a rich brown-black hue (samples available on request).
Custom Powder Coat– we can powder coat your steel to any color of your choice (color options available at Prismatic Powders).
When it comes to style, choosing the perfect range hood is akin to selecting the ideal outfit – it’s all about your personal preference and style. Your custom kitchen hood will undoubtedly become the centerpiece of your kitchen, making it one of the most important design elements. As such, it’s essential to consider the overall style of your home – whether it’s traditional, contemporary, or rustic – as well as the various color elements that can add or impact material options for your range hood.
Determining the right height for your metal range hood is a straightforward process if you know the height of your ceiling. For instance, if your ceiling is 9 feet high (108 inches), you can subtract the height of your range (36 inches) from the total height to leave you with 72 inches. From there, you’ll need to determine how high you’d like your range hood to hang above your cooktop. At DS Metal Works, we recommend installing your range hood between 32-34” above the cooking surface. Let’s assume you decide to hang it 33 inches above the cooking surface. Deducting the 33 inches from the remaining 72 inches leaves you with a total hood height of 39 inches.
108 inches (ceiling height) – 36 inches (range height) = 72 inches
72 inches – 33 inches (hood height above cooktop) = 39 inches (total hood height)
The ideal width of your metal range hood should be 6 inches wider than your cooking surface, overhanging by 3 inches on either side. In areas where space is limited, the hood should be no narrower than the width of the cooking surface. Our standard depth is 25 inches, ensuring that your range hood fully covers the cooking surface of your range from front to back.
