We made it. It’s happening. The kitchen renovation has officially kicked off and we’re starting with sharing our newest appliance (and the last one on our shopping list)–the range hood. You see, when we did our cosmetic kitchen revamp to tide us over until we could get started on this real one, we painted our bisque range hood (gag me) white. Obviously, we really needed a new one that wasn’t painted and that, more importantly, worked.
So while it has to work was our main objective, we also decided that getting a hood to go with our Kenmore range hanging out below would be a good idea. After scouring our Sears Outlet with no luck, we turned to ebay to see if we could get by without paying full price (about $230) for the hood we had our eyes on. Luckily, we did find it on ebay–new–for $150 and it arrived a few days later.
We love the sleek shape of the hood, and the fact that curves up instead of down, opens up a little more visual space underneath. It doesn’t come with bulbs for the lights–weird–just include the bulbs! We have ordered the bulbs and other than that, we are happy with it and it was a breeze to install.
Visually, the room already looks so much better. Unified–and a great way to get the remodel going. That (and that pot of stew you see on the stove) made for a very happy weekend.
