Build a custom decorative box to cover your old range hood. Reorganize your kitchen, so you don’t need the extra space of an overhead cabinet and then cover the front and sides with wood that you can stain or paint as shown here. You’ll still have access to the vent controls by reaching underneath. And, the front ledge works as a spot for small fun or functional objects.
Kitchen windows present a few challenges. The windows all may not match; maybe there are casements over the sink, large double-hungs in the eating area, and a glass door to the mudroom. Go with what’s practical in each case, tying the treatments together with material or color, or a common trim or stencil. Ann Wallace of Prairie Textiles suggests bottom-only café curtains over the sink, for example, with full-length curtains in the eating area, and a panel (held by rods at the top and bottom) for the window in the door.
If you prefer to install a passive makeup air duct rather than a powered makeup air unit, the duct must include a motorized damper that is wired to come on simultaneously with the range-hood fan. Broan sells motorized dampers for this purpose, and also provides detailed and useful installation instructions.
