Kitchen design tip: achieve a more custom, higher end look by removing the microwave from above the stove/cooktop and replacing it with a vent hood. While mine is custom made, you don’t have to spend a lot or be a great DIYer to get the look. I’ve linked a variety of great options below if you are considering upgrading your kitchen! I included the one we will be installing in our new kitchen as well! You won’t believe how good of a deal it is!
