Want to Spice Up The Kitchen? Kitchen Hoods Can Be a Visual Centerpiece

Make a Personal Statement with Show-Stopping Prizer Hoods

Reading, PA, October 15 – When thinking about how make a kitchen have that certain edge or detail, a statement-making hood from U.S. manufacturer Prizer Hoods is a great place to start.  Prizer Hoods offers a stunning line of professionally-inspired luxury kitchen hoods, crafted for kitchen designers, architects and homeowners who demand cutting-edge design and state-of-the-art performance.

“Ranges and hoods are like huge sculptures of art in the middle of the kitchen.  They say ‘this is what the space is about’,” according to Kitchen Designer Rebekah Zaveloff, CKD, principal, KitchenLab in Chicago, Illinois.  Hoods can be basic and functional and do their job…or they can be quiet and seamless, built in with the cabinetry.  But then there’s the hood that says “look at me”!  A luxurious kitchen hood can transform an already elegant kitchen into a dream chef’s kitchen.

“We’ve all seen the chimney hood or the under-the-cabinet hood, but how about a few ideas that are a little out of the ordinary?” asks Zaveloff.  “I’ve always had a thing for metal.  It instantly infuses any space with that utilitarian, industrial feel and it makes any object look so useful and purposeful – be it the perfect bar stool, light fixture or, as in this case, the kitchen hood,” says Zaveloff.

Prizer Hoods leverages a 133-year-heritage of quality custom manufacturing technology of its parent company, Prizer-Painter Stove Works, to create stunning designs from rich old-world, commanding styles to modern hood designs with smooth, sweeping contours.  Every hand-crafted Prizer Hood offers enduring elegance and engaging style customized to the buyer’s individual taste.

Each Prizer Hood can be formed from virtually any metal and painted in any of hundreds of colors and finishes.  This unique approach to kitchen hood design empowers designers and architects to re-energize the kitchen space with a personalized design statement.  For example, polished stainless steel makes a modern impact, while adding a pop of fresh color can be both playful and exotic.  With Prizer Hoods, you can select from any one of 750 standard color options.

“A custom-designed hood is a relatively small investment compared to the visual return it can provide,” says Zaveloff.  “A unique hood can be a work of art.”

Since 1880, Prizer has built a heritage of craftsmanship – first with a full-line or residential and commercial coal ranges, hot water heaters, furnaces and heating stoves at the company’s factory in Pennsylvania.  In 2002, Prizer introduced handcrafted, restaurant-quality ranges for the residential market under the BlueStar® brand name.
