A few things you should know when shopping for a zinc range hood:
Zinc range hoods are growing in popularity, primarily because of their beautiful aesthetic appeal. Zinc has a crisp, silvery coloration with a silky, matte finish. At the same time, it forms to shape snugly and is well-suited to modern, geo-centric designs with sharp angles and clean lines. The contrast of a soft finish over a rigid structure is striking and wholly unique. The result is an economical, durable range hood with a distinctive aesthetic that blends well with other silver metals in the kitchen like stainless steel, nickel, and aluminum.
