Help me decide-custom wood hood or stainless steel?

2 months ago

I am remodeling my kitchen and love this kitchen. Do you think I should get a custom wood hood like the picture or go with a stainless steel chimney? I do a lot of greasy cooking. I’m worried that the wood hood will get dirty and I would be paying a premium for it to look worse over the years. I have 8 ft ceiling and will be getting a Thermador hood with 1300 CFM blower so the suction should be powerful enough. And aside from functionality, what’s your opinion on looks? Will the wood go out of style? I can’t make up my mind, please help!
