A range hood is a perfect complement to your kitchen, but how do you choose the right one? The design of your kitchen should be taken into consideration when choosing a Canopy Rangehood. We will discuss some common designs below and how they can help you make the best choice.
Your rangehood plays an influential role in defining your kitchen aesthetic.
Your rangehood plays an influential role in defining your kitchen aesthetic. It can be used to hide a range, create a focal point or even provide a sense of drama. Canopy Rangehood is known for its kitchen aesthetic. Read on!
Range hoods are designed to be placed above the stovetop or cooking surface and built with an exhaust fan to help clear away smoke, grease and odours from cooking. They come in two types: recirculating and non-recirculating units.
Recirculating units are generally cheaper but they recycle the air back into your kitchen instead of releasing it outside while non-recirculating ones vent out their fumes through vents on top of the hood itself (or somewhere else).
It's important that you consider what kind of appliance you'll have before choosing which type is right for your home as some models will not work properly if connected incorrectly.
Undermount Rangehoods are best suited for kitchens with island benches, benchtops and breakfast bars.
The advantages of undermount range hoods:
- Under mount range hoods can be installed above your kitchen island or even below it. This way you can get that extra storage space by installing a pull-out drawer or shelving system.
- You can use the space below your kitchen island as an extra seating area or even add another built-in benchtop on top of it to cook a family meal together!
Canopy rangehoods are also designed to be mounted on the ceiling. This is a great way to make sure that airflow is directed away from your kitchen and into the living room.
If you choose this option, keep in mind that it will be mounted above your head. You may want to consider using a different type of canopy rangehood if there's not enough space between the ceiling and where you will be cooking on your stovetop or oven.
Canopy rangehoods can also be mounted on the wall behind your stovetop or oven (if there's enough room). This gives it a more streamlined look, though it does take up some precious counter space—which may not work for everyone!
Finally, these types of hoods can also be installed in the centre of the kitchen instead of above any particular appliance like an oven or stovetop unit would normally go--and this gives off even more air than those two other options mentioned here do because they're designed specifically with that purpose in mind!
Island range hoods
- Island range hoods are the perfect choice for any kitchen that features a raised benchtop, lowered benchtop or peninsula.
- An island will always be in the middle of the kitchen, and you can use it as storage space or a dining table.
- The best thing about this type of hood is that it can be installed above any island so that your cooking odours are removed from the room as soon as possible.
We hope we have helped you to understand some of the different types of range hoods and their benefits. Now it is up to you to decide which type will suit your kitchen best.
