In many kitchens, range hoods are a necessary evil — functional for sure, but far from fantastic-looking. Take a look at these kitchens where the ventilation systems aren't just utilitarian, but help define the entire look of the room. Each and every one is a focal point, deserving of much appreciation.

This brass hood is as much sculpture as it is a kitchen appliance. It was designed by CWB Architects for a Brooklyn apartment.

Vintage wallpaper and checkerboard add to the vintage vibe in Lorry Newhouse's kitchen, from Architectural Digest, but it's the Aga stove and black hood that are the showstoppers in this space.

This marble and white range hood is subtle drama, but once you notice it, you can't take your eyes away. Even the beautiful island lighting takes a backseat in this Australian kitchen from Heckter Guthrie.

Mirrors cleverly give the illusion that the matte black range hood bisects the marble backsplash in this Hecker Guthrie kitchen.

Tracery Interiors gave this kitchen a gothic, Old World feel with a riveted metal cutout wall that highlights the cooking area.
