Range hoods are an essential piece of any functional kitchen. They suck up smoke and steam to keep the air in your home healthy and clear. However, these essential fixtures can take up a lot of space and don’t always look good. The problem of unsightly range hoods can be solved with hidden or integrated hoods that you hardly even notice. Here are 7 examples of range hoods that are hidden in plain sight.
