Wood Range Hoods
Nothing completes a traditional or rustic-style kitchen like a range hood with a wood trim, but wooden accents can even add warmth and contrast to a traditional or modern kitchen. Whether harmoniously blending in with a wooden or butcher-block countertop, or contrasting with more modern materials such as concrete and glass, wood panels offer additional choices for many kitchen designers.
To accommodate the needs of kitchen designs that call for a softer-than-modern look for the range hood, Futuro Futuro produces a line of wood-accented rustic-style hoods. Inspired by the simple and practical lines of the New England architecture, these hoods are named after historic places in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maine. The "Classic Collection" range hoods feature the same high-end materials and Italian craftsmanship as the rest of the Futuro Futuro modern range hood lineup, but with a focus on traditional / rustic design.
Custom Wood Range Hoods
The range hood bodies are manufactured from high-strength steel, and finished with a patented plastic-based powdercoat / enamel. The special coating has a semi-matte white finish, for a high-end look, and is completely resistant to grease, heat, and moisture.
In addition, it can be easily painted over, without having to use a primer, and without having to remove the coating down to the metal. Simply sand it lightly to assure paint adhesion, and customize the range hood to any color you desire. The wood frames and trim are made from solid wood (not veneer, MDF, or imitation plastic). They are provided unstained, and are ready to be painted, stained, or customized with carvings or inlays.
The customization options of the Futuro Futuro "Classic Collection" range hoods make them an excellent choice for kitchen designers and homeowners looking to have a completely custom-looking hood, but at a fraction of the time & cost that’s usually associated with having a hood manufactured "from scratch".
Wood Range Hoods With Decorative Shelves
The "Boston", "Bridgeport", and "Cambridge" models feature a tapered body shape, with a wood-trimmed recessed accent shelf. The accent shelf offers additional customization options - it can be painted in a contrasting or complementing color, or used for displaying decorative items.
Chimney Style Traditional Hoods
The "Connecticut", "Massachusetts", and "Vermont" models feature an elegant convex body shape, with a sleek upper trim piece to delineate the chimney from the hood body. The difference between these 3 models is the lower (main) frame. The "Connecticut" model features a graceful frame with corbels, the "Massachusetts" has a puritan frame with an inner groove (perfect for inlaying tiles!), and the "Vermont" is equipped with a solid, blocky "log cabin" frame.
The frames are supplied unstained, so they're ready to be painted or stained to match your cabinetry. They're easily removable, and can even be custom-carved or replaced altogether, with a totally custom frame, made by your local contractor or cabinet maker.
