If your range hood cover itself is simply boring, make a statement with a stylish cover. If you’re a novice woodworker, but you want to spruce up your range hood, add corbels. This old French word simply means a fixture coming out from a wall to support a structure above it. In this instance, the corbels function strictly as a decorative accent piece since your hood cover is already mounted in place. You can buy pre-made corbels or you can handcraft and install your own design and mount them under your range hood cover.
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.
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.”
