Kitchen hoods may not seem like the most glamorous piece of equipment, but for many people — especially those who like to cook — they’re pretty much essential. And while they are useful for a plethora of reasons, HGTV’s Breegan Jane has shown that they can be a statement piece.

In a recent Instagram post shared with her followers, the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” host shared a sleek and stylish hood she designed that certainly takes the kitchen to the next level.

Dark hues dominate the large space, giving the kitchen plenty of drama without being too overpowering. The cabinets feature black wood, while the countertops have been adorned with black marble, putting a gothic twist on the usual white marble slabs that are often seen throughout kitchens.

“It’s always such a great feeling when I design a space that positively impacts so many people. This range has become a favorite of my followers, and I totally understand why,” Jane wrote. “When I designed this space, I knew the black and brass of the range would complement the stone I selected for the walls and the petrified wood for the kitchen island.”

Followers were also fond of the stylish design, sharing the love for the eye-catching kitchen in the comments. “So stunning 😍 so many people are into the all white look but this puts it to shame” wrote one person, while another said: “This is beyond gorgeous”

Jane wrote that she loves finding ways to make her designs feels like art, which is why she opted for the dramatic stone hood that serves as both a statement piece and a functional product. The all-black kitchen hood blends in seamlessly with the rest of the kitchen, while white veins run through the stone, adding texture and depth.

Removing strong cooking smells, grease, and moisture from the kitchen, hoods are an important part of the space. Why not make them stylish?
