Meridian Products Introduces New Range Hood Line

By Katie Van Blargan, Meridian Customer Service

The 2024 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, known by industry professionals as KBIS, took place last month in Las Vegas, Nevada. KBIS is North America’s largest trade show dedicated to all aspects of kitchen and bath design.

Every year, KBIS exhibitors set the stage for the latest trends in beautiful and functional kitchen and bath spaces. As we take a look at some of the trends they’ve showcased for 2024, range hoods are coming in strong!

Making a Bold Statement with Range Hoods

Traditionally, range hoods were just considered a basic and essential element of any kitchen. Their purpose was to remove smoke and odors generated during the cooking process and vent out excess heat and moisture and reduce the risk of grease buildup.

In modern-day kitchens, however, range hoods aren’t just functional. They’re being embraced as a design element that can bring an eye-catching aesthetic to the kitchen space.

The NKBA shares that 67% of designers plan to make the range hood a focal point in kitchens this year – using a variety of materials. And a majority of those designers say they plan on using wood and painted wood to make a bold, decorative statement in the kitchen.

Whether you’re incorporating a strong accent color, special material, or unique shape into your range hood design, it’s important to prioritize the functionality of the hood first, then the style. This will ensure the quality, longevity, and safety performance of the piece.

Meridian’s New Range Hood Line

Meridian has embraced the move from functional to stylish range hoods by launching a new wood grain range hood line.

The new line includes an eclectic mix of both contemporary and traditional designs and is available in 7 different designs and 8 standard sizes. A variety of wood species are available from our current wood species line. While the line offers several standard designs, custom designs, and sizes are also available to meet your needs.
