The kitchen felt unfinished to me in the home we are renting for a year. There was no trim on the upper cabinets and I wanted to dress up the stainless steel vent hood cover.
Here is what the kitchen looked like before the updates:
I contacted a local carpenter and showed him a few images of what I was looking to do. Since we are renting the house I didn’t want to add cabinets to the ceiling because of cost. Trim as a good way to make the cabinets looked more polished at a lower price.
Modern Vent Hood Cover BUDGET BREAKDOWN:
- $1,050 – construct and install range hood box with oak trim at the bottom edge
- $450 – purchase, paint, and install molding above upper cabinets
These cabinets are painted “DOVE WHITE” (as are the walls and trim in the home). If you are local I used Nova Initia LLC to complete the project and would highly recommend them for carpentry services.
