Building A Custom Stove Hood

Thanks for all your sweet comments about our upcoming kitchen remodel.  Anticipating the changes I have been busy pinning kitchen ideas like crazy.  I think other than painting the cabinets I am most excited about moving the microwave from above stove and adding a pretty stove hood.  I am still trying to decide on the style hood that will work best with our small kitchen.

Below are some of my options….



#1 Cabinet Mart
#3 Golden Boys  

#4 Confessions Of A DIYaholic

Whichever hood style we choose it must be something we can DIY and based on our skill level it must be super easy.
Which one is your favorite?  I would love your feedback.
Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend.

  1. They are all great options, Sherry! I wish I could do a stove hood like them here. I would do one with a shelf/mantel to it so I could put dishes and whatever on it. Unfortunately, we have our microwave over our stove, but I don't like the alternative of having it on the counter (which we did at our old house and I swore I would not do again!).

  2. They are all exciting but #2 and #3 look the best to me, they do not dominate the room like the others. Being a small kitchen, the others would really stand out. You are going to have so much fun with this remodel!!!!

  3. I love all of your inspiration pics Sherry…several of them remind me of Yvonne's over at Stone Gable (which I love)…how exciting for you with this mini-makeover…I'm sure it will be fabulous!

  4. I like all of those options you're considering. I'm a big fan of the oversized wooden hood. I hope to have something nicer in my next house than what I have now which is a boring microwave.

  5. My personal favorite (although they are all great) is #2. I know that my husband and I could not make it ourselves, however, you and Steve are probably better DIY-ers. Does the tutorial for the last one look "do-able"?

  6. Oh #3 is the best one!!! I love that. I never really thought of a custom hood before. This is interesting! I would love if you linked this up to Totally Terrific Tuesday that goes live tonight at 9pm CST! Hope to see you there!


  7. Dear Sherry – I want to do this in my kitchen too and, like you, it has to be within our skill set . . . which is beginner carpenter level! I like #1 & #2 because they don't protrude into the room and there is tall space above them to decorate. The others are both beautiful but for different types of kitchens.
    I can't wait to see which one you choose and the final result. I'm so anxious to change my kitchen but we have a long list of "to-do's" in front of it!
    Blessings to you dear lady,

  8. Hmm I love # 4 and I'm toying with having mine out of reclaimed wood for that beachy touch. Everything else white. But I can't wait to see what you do, I know it will be fabulous because you've got wonderful taste!
