Eyesore no more! In recent years, kitchen range hoods have evolved from grimy eyesores to works of art. And why shouldn't an appliance of such large size also make a big (stylish) statement? Today, kitchen vent hoods are available in all shapes, sizes, and materials (hello, copper!) that can either draw the eye or blend right in with the surroundings.
Armed with the limited recommendations provided by GE’s installation instructions, I sought more information by placing two calls to the GE Answer Center (800-626-2000), asking, “Does GE have any recommendations on providing makeup air for a 1,200-cfm GE range hood installed in a residential kitchen?” The first GE expert responded, “What is makeup air?” An explanation was provided. She responded, “Do you mean you want to know the cfm of the fan?” After further discussion, I was put on hold. A few minutes later, the expert returned to the phone to report, “That information is not something we would have here.”
Simple, time-tested treatments that work for most periods include a valance or shaped pelmet (cornice), café curtains, sheers, roller and Roman shades, and Venetian blinds. If you have a pretty view or little room for curtains, a valance alone is enough to dress the window. A valance or pelmet also hides the working parts at the top of blinds and shades. Café (half, or sash) curtains can be stacked, but Ann Wallace says they are most often used only on the bottom sash, where they provide privacy without blocking too much light.
