A sleek, wall-mount vent hood over the cooktop trims the visual fat from a wall of cabinets, giving the room a greater feeling of openness. Minimalist vent hoods, like this one, require 30 inches between cabinets, about the same as an undercabinet hood, but give a cleaner, lighter look, a plus in a small kitchen.
While red as a kitchen color is not for everyone, it should be considered if you want to add spark and spice. In a kitchen with plenty of dark colors, it can cut through the gloom. In a kitchen with fog-gray stainless steel appliances, it can provide a welcome focal point for the eyes. Going red is like taking that big leap off the cliff. If you are going to do it, make sure you do it well.
