 A  picture  of  the  tank  would  help  us  give  suggestions.  What  fish  do  you  have?  Usually  planted  tanks  look  good  with  a  open  top.  If  you  have  fish  that  jump  then  i  would  advise  youto  go  for  a  covered  tank

 Wow!  Nice  plant  growth!   Thumbs Up   From  aesthetic  point,  either  go  with  completely  closed  or  with  completely  open  (hanging  lights).
 Also,  do  you  have  a  TV  above  your  aquarium?

 Most  of  hardcore  scapers  would  prefer  open  top,  as  it's  convenient  to  trim  and  plant  etc.
 
 If  you  would'nt  do  so  much  trimming  like  weekly,  closed  hood  is  much  much  better.  In  a  living  room  you  ll  avoid  lots  of  awkward  light  spill-personally  I  don't  like  that,  unless  its  very  bright  room  where  its  not  so  evident.
 You  can  see  it  from  your  pics  too.  Further  more,  it  ll  be  glaring  while  TV  viewing.
 
 You  can  have  a  small  PC  fan  in  closed  hood  to  keep  things  cool.
