Our hand-made copper range hood can be customized in size, shape, color and small, decorative details such as straps and rivets in case of copper range hoods for instance. The general rule applied to customized work is that the client pay only an additional fee for the extra material used which is a great deal for a unique, blacksmith work of art. The good news is that copper has a warm quality and, as we already mentioned, can be finished in many different tones and for that this high-quality metal goes well with many interior styles. It can look bright and shiny with polished, smooth surface, ideal for modern, minimalist or industrial ambiances.  On the other hand, we also have darker finishes with less gloss but with beautiful, rustic texture, perfect for more traditional kitchens.

If you are thinking to pair a decorative vent hood with your kitchen apron-front sink, you can integrate them beautifully by picking the same designing motive. This could be for instance, a grape cluster that can look fabulous in a cooking area, adding a farmhouse feel to it. Have a look at our slim and elegant copper vent hood “Phoenix” whose front part of the molding is decorated with a subtle pattern of a grapevine. The ornamented panel fruit design was hand hammered by artisans from Santa Clara del Cobre in Mexico. The hood decor includes a crown molding, vertical straps and the apron grape fruits pattern. It has rustic, country house kitchen appeal. To finish the cottage look, you can install our copper apron kitchen sink "Louisville". It is a single bowl washbasin that is a perfect blend of functionality, comfort and metal art. Pairing those two models will give you a one-of-a-kind kitchen setup.
