Alternative to a massive stove hood

Don't like big stove hoods? Here's an alternative.Here’s an unusual design in a Los Feliz kitchen. Instead of a massive stainless-steel or stucco-looking stove hood over the gigantic range and built-in grill, these homeowners opted for a fan hidden behind faux cabinets. Plus, there are some pot hangers tucked in there as well.

I’m not sure I would do this, but I can see the logic. The home is a 1920s Spanish Revival, just half a block from Griffith Park, and perhaps it was thought that a great big hood would look out of sync? Or maybe someone had bad memories of hitting his or her head on a big stove hood and thus wanted to prevent that from happening again?

Whatever the reason, the next owner could change it. With a price tag of just under $3.4 million, this featured Home of the Week in today’s Real Estate section will surely be bought by people with a lot of options in life.

What do you think of this idea?

    i like this, it seems potentially very budget-friendly. if i ever do get one of those mondo 6-burner stoves, i will have definitely blown the budget for the rest of my kitchen. 😉
