Our Kitchen Remodel | Zephyr Hood Giveaway


Last fall Zephyr flew me out to San Francisco with a handful of other creatives to get the full Zephyr experience. It was hands down one of the most fun trips I’ve been on with the best group of girls. Every one of these ladies was such an inspiration. We laughed our pants off, got our creative juices flowing, enjoyed some cocktails, and got to see the city.

Fast forward six months and I’ve reconnected with a ton of these girls around the states. It’s been pretty cool to develop deep relationships with them. I’m a firm believer in being in the right place at the right time and there was no mistaking this group of girls and why we were all put together.

Zephyr toured us around the San Fran design district, and we got to spend some quality time in the Zephyr design showroom and hear firsthand from the experts and designers about how they create their hoods and the thought process that goes into each of them.

If you’re interested (or if you missed it), you can read about my full experience with Zephyr in San Francisco here.

Since that trip, Zephyr has been the only way we go when it comes to range hoods. We’ve put a number of different styles into our clients’ home, and you bet we put one into our home during our kitchen remodel. However, it was the first time we’ve used an insert into a custom hood.

Jamie is such a great craftsman that one of the things I knew I wanted to have him do to showcase his talents was to build a custom hood.

And he killed it!

We had a hard time deciding if we should leave it natural, paint black, or do it half and half. We liked the natural because it matched the floating shelves and the flooring. But we also didn’t want it to distract from the beautiful backsplash. We asked our readers what we should do, and in the end, the votes came in to leave it natural. And we thought, if we get sick of it in a year or two we can always paint, right? But not go back the other way around.

We chose the Zephyr Monsoon II Insert. What we loved about it was that it was stainless steel with baffle filters, 6-speed electronic controls, and wireless remote that can control the speed and lighting.

Sometimes we have clients that think since they won’t see it they can go cheap on the insert. No way! Hoods control your air quality and there is a huge difference in manufactures. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean you don’t want to invest in good quality air control filters. They make the biggest difference when cooking.

Any anyone that knows me personally knows that I like my meat burnt. As in charcoal, haha! So as you can imagine we had previously smoked the house out with our microwave hood. Now with our Zephyr hood, we literally have no smoke in our house. And the hood is so quiet; you can hardly tell it’s on.

We also invested in an induction cooktop, so our food cooks fast. So another cool thing I love about the Zephyr hoods is their remotes. I can be mixing up other food, cleaning or running after the boys god knows where and have the remote handy to turn up or down the air without having to run to the actual hood.

This is the remote that is magnetic to the charger in the outlet. It’s pretty slick and it’s visually pretty.

So happy we finally have a Zephyr insert in our home and we want to give one of our lucky readers one too for FREE!

    We are going to be doing a kitchen remodel in our house – it needs A LOT of help. Winning a range hood would help so much, and the Zephyr brand looks great.

    • Morgan Molitor

      This would be the most perfect win!! I’ll be crossing my fingers for you!

  • Christina Pourciau

    My husband and I will be starting our new home construction late this summer and would love a Zephyr hood in our new kitchen. It would bring so much quality to the space and the Zephyr hoods look amazing. My husband loves to cook and this would be a great addition to our design.

    • Morgan Molitor

      How exciting!! Good Luck!! Fingers crossed. You’ll love a good range hood from Zephyr.

  • Betsy Larae

    I can’t wait to remodel our kitchen this fall after 4 years of coping with eye sores and disrepair. To have a beautiful space to make delicious food and create memories with family and friends is going to be a dream come true!

    • Morgan Molitor

      haha, I feel your pain. How exciting!! This would be so perfect for you. Crossing my fingers. Good Luck!!

  • Maggie G

    Oh my gosh, I’d die to win this giveaway! I feel like my smoke alarm is always going off. My burnt guilty pleasure is melting butter to a deeeeeeep brown for my stovetop popcorn.. my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

    • YA!!! haha, story of our life before we got this hood. Best of luck!!! Aweeee, so many good people. I wish we could give a thousand away. You all deserve it so much.

  • sarah goodman

    I would use it in our kitchen remodel for my hot husband to make some hot dinners since it never stops snowing in this forsaken state!!! Fajitas anyone?

    • hahaha! Our favorite meal. On the grill. Meant to text you today to tell you to enter!! XOXO

  • Brooke Nelson

    What a great giveaway! I would love to remodel our kitchen.

  • Taylor Gasca

    We’d use it in our first home! Love the idea of bringing an old home back to life!

    • Aweeee, love that so much. Congrats! Cherish those memories!!

  • Holly

    My husband loves to make big breakfasts (hashbrowns, bacon, eggs, etc.) using lots of butter. Unfortunately he has yet to discover that our burner has more than one setting (high). 😂 This would be perfect for making sure the smoke alarms don’t go off and making sure we can still hear each other talking while he’s cooking! 😊

    • haha, that sounds like me (Morgan). Jamie always gets so mad! That was previously when we had our “microwave” vent. This thing is a game changer. Best marriage counseling we could have invested in. lol!

      • Holly

        That’s hilarious! Hah. We still have a microwave vent so if this marriage is gonna last we definitely need an upgrade! 😂

  • Zoe Gibson

    What an awesome giveaway! A new vent hood for our kitchen has been on my “honey do list” for a while now!!

  • marla van maele

    Excellent giveaway! We are starting our kitchen remodel in a few weeks and have been shopping the beautiful Zephyr hoods to accompany our new range. We are fans of blacked fish and cooking steaks and chicken in our cast iron skillet and it’s absolutely necessary to have a great vent hood. Thanks again!

    • Oh heck yes, then you totally need good ventilation. So exciting on your new space. Best of Luck!!

      • marla van maele

        I am in LOVE (seriously) with your backsplash. I wish I were talented enough to put something like that together. So beautiful!

  • Karra Cappelli

    I just remodeled my kitchen and the one thing I don’t like is my stainless steel hood vent; it’s been a headache from the start. I’d get the most use out of the Zephyr hood range for breakfasts on the weekends!

    • Ohhh that makes me so sad!! Yes, no issues with Zephyr. And when we have had they’ve replaced right away, no questions asked. Such a great company to work with.

  • Katie

    I love that he built your hood! We remodeled our kitchen and replaced everything except the hood😱😂, I haven’t been able to make a decision between and insert/building one, or a big hood. So right now it’s just a blank wall🤓Anyways, we would love to win one of these!

    • haha, I hear you!! We were in the same boat. I love the look of all of them. But it came down to Jamie’s talents and I 100% wanted that to be showcased in our own home. You def need a hood. And if you win, and need a custom one for your insert we’re here to help. 🙂 XO

  • Angela Radzyuk

    We’re saving up to remodel our kitchen to flow with the rest of our home updates, we’re thinking next year will be time! We don’t currently have a hood and I miss it so much! Thank you for the opportunity!!

    • Morgan Molitor

      That’s so awesome! Planning stages are the most important. Hope you win!!

    • Awesome!! You will love this! I think hoods make the space for sure.

  • Oh this is a aweosme! We are in the dream/planning stage of a full kitchen remodel and I LOVE these vent hoods!

    • Morgan Molitor

      Oh my gosh, the most fun times for you guys!! Zephyr hood is the way to go to create that dream kitchen. Good luck!!

    • The most fun part!!! YES, Zephyr hoods make the space. Good Luck!

  • Will Griesmer

    I will use it in our kitchen!

  • Kristine Leary

    My husband and I are in the process of remodeling a 100 year home in Chaska that we bought 2 years ago. It’s been more work than I could have imagined but such a rewarding process! This summer we finished our master bedroom, living room & dining room and just started the upstairs which involves 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. In about 6 months we plan on finishing our home renovations with the kitchen and downstairs bathroom. Winning this hood would be an amazing start to our next project that we would be so grateful for! While our goal is to keep all the woodwork & amazing character of the home (the main reason we bought it), we also want to add some nice touches from this day in age so I can finally have my dream kitchen!

    P.S. – I am obsessed with your custom Mercury Mosaic back splash – talk about #kitchengoals!

  • Angie

    Our kitchen remodel!

  • Stephanie Stith

    For our kitchen remodel starting next month! Don’t want the hood to be an after thought!

    My fiancé and I just bought a house and have completely torn apart the whole thing. It would be amazing to have a great hood in all this remodeling chaos happening.

  • Kelsey Kohoutek Brown

    The Zephyr hoods are beautiful and classic. We’re breaking ground in the next few months and it’d be prefect in our new kitchen.

  • Trent Anderson

    To keep my house smelling decent when my mother-in-law cooks her Korean food because my current vent doesn’t vent.

  • Niki Olsen

    We are knee deep in our kitchen remodel and have yet to purchase a vent hood…must be a sign 😉

  • Sarah

    We are building our dream modern farmhouse on our farm. This is exactly the type of hood I want…this way I wouldn’t have to figure out how to build my own 🙌 (I need to find a way to mimick that hexagon backsplash too!!!) We are just finishing up with framing!

  • Jessica Gipson

    We’re remodling our house this Spring and this would be great hood for our kichen area.

  • Kjirsten Berg

    We would love this as we don’t have one and it would probably help the smoke alarms go off less often. Lol. On top of it being beautiful, it would also be very useful. It looks like there should be a range hood, however it’s just a blank space in our kitchen.

  • Kyle W.

    We’re planning on remodeling our kitchen in the near future. We would love to hire Construction2Style build us an oak range hood to go around a Zephyr insert!

  • Anna Monsour

    We updated our kitchen a few years ago but a new hood is one thing that wasn’t in our budget. This would be an amazing final addition to our project!

  • Deja

    We’ve been slowly chipping away at DIY projects on our house for two years. By slowly I mean working on it every single weekend but just not making a ton of progress 😂 I’ve been looking for a new range hood (the space where ours used to be is empty) but haven’t been able to find one that was in my price range that I like! I’ll have to take a look at these range hoods.

  • Aaron Reck

    Upgrading the kitchen is a great way to spend the summer. I hope to score. It would be beautiful in my kitchen.

  • Sonya Allstun

    We’re remodling our house this Spring and this would be great hood for our kichen area.

  • Emmy Ross

    My husband and I love cooking but we dont have a hood in our kitchen and it stinks up our whole house! We would use the hood ALL THE TIME and keep our house smelling minty fresh! 😉

    • Morgan Molitor

      Yes! You need this gf!!

  • Erin

    I would give it to my mother to update her kitchen.

  • PhancyPheet

    We are working on remodeling the kitchen so this would definitely be part of the plans!!

  • Megan Larson

    Hi Morgan! My friend Emily Tritabaugh told me about you and I’ve been loving following you on IG! We had a water leak in our kitchen about 3 weeks ago that is turning into a full-on remodel! I also love super charred meat and we are constantly setting of our smoke detector. As if that isn’t annoying enough, we have a very sensitive 3-year-old that loses her dang mind when it goes off. It’s a hot mess. We’ve resorted to grillin.oitside in the dead of winter, but this sounds like a much better solution!

  • Ae Minx

    OH gosh I would love to add this to my kitchen.. We’re thinking that our last remodel wasn’t up to snuff, so we’re going to do another one soon

  • Molly Pitcher

    Hi Morgan! How beautiful is this hood! This would be great to replace the outdated one in my kitchen.

  • Kayla Klontz

    I would absolutely, positively love this for my kitchen!

  • Amber K

    Awesome giveaway! Great info shared and would love to win such a great and useful piece for a kitchen!!

  • Terry

    We are building our home and this would be the perfect look and it would definitely fit in with the kitchen decor I am using.

  • Gloria Luongo

    I will use it for our new home we are going to build. I love the hood.

  • Laura Cruz

    For my kitchen!

  • Eva G

    I’ll use the zephyr so when I cook all my Goya dishes I won’t smell like it for days after lol

  • Ashley Ciera Patrick

    This would be awesome in our new home!

  • Megan Norman

    Hoping to do a kitchen refresh this summer and this would be amazing for it!!!!!!

  • zesty77777

    For my kitchen. thanks

  • Andrea LaDouceur

    We don’t have any vent! We use open windows (even in MN winters) and the bathroom fan when we cook.
