Should I add adornment to new hood?

Mary Grant JustinDecember 8, 2012
Hi, just got my hood installed. I'm thinking it may need some scrolling on each side. I'm going to have a Tuscany vineyard mural under it so I'm not sure if I should wait to see if the hood needs anything after mural is installed. Any thoughts?

It will get too busy if you add more to the hood. Don't be afraid of a little open space. It gives the eyes a place to rest.

Nope! Beautiful in it's simplicity.

You wouldn't want the range hood to compete for attention with your Tuscan tile mural. I think scroll work would be overkill.

Thank you everyone for your input. You all are 100% unanimous. The hood will stay as is.

HI -- For sure the hood is great the way it is ! The trouble with doing a" theme "like "Tuscan" is people get carried away and then it starts to look over done and cluttered.

I have done a lot of Italian Villas and French Chateaus, wanted to ask you, someone is painting a mural above your stove? Is it tile? Now, the pure white will create too much of a contrast and it is not very rustic nor italian. What I would do, would be a very soft dry brushing glaze on the hood using a beige background and a dark brown glaze, which will only be visible on the creases on the wood. What does your back splash look like?? You want the mural to be part of the kitchen, not the kitchen, if you know what I mean, less is more, for sure, yet, if you can marry the hood with the mural, your kitchen will look more cohesive and beautiful. Hope it helps.

I think it will get too busy and the wall and hood will be competing for attention. Decide which you want to focus on and make that your busy one. Too much busy confuses the eye. Good luck

do nothing until the mural is set. then glaze as suggested to tie the two together. If you really think it still looks bare you can hang plates, copper molds or other kitchen accents.

The mural will be on tumbled travertine. I will attach a pictur if I can. The hood already has some glazing but they put it just in the creases so I've asked them to do a little more feathering out (not sure if that is the proper terminology for that). The mural size is 28 W X 20 H. My kitchen island will be a darker wood that will match the glazing on the cream colored cabinets. Granite on counter tops and island is called sienna Bordeaux. (I'll try to attach pictures of this too). I'm going for a French/tuscany country type theme. So holding off doing anything else with the hood as you all have suggested sounds like the right way to go.

Since your mural is tumbled travertine, I suspect that the image is dye sublimation or another low heat transfer process. In my opinion, the finish is not really durable for installing behind a cook-top. If you need to clean grease spatter, you may very well damage the mural. Kiln-fired tile will not have this problem. If you're going to the expense of installing art in the kitchen, why not consider the more durable option? Please have a look at my Houzz profile page to learn more.
