Range Hoods: Choosing The Right One

8:59 am

Upon taking on a NJ kitchen remodeling job, many aspects come into play. In addition to the design of the room and fixtures such as cabinets, additional pieces of hardware have a big role in both the functionality and appearance of your room.

Today we’d like to take a look at one fundamental piece of the kitchen which can really pull the room together, the range hood.

Now, the range hood serves a very important purpose. It works as a ventilation system to clear the area in which you are cooking, and to consolidate grease and smoke from those actions. Besides being a staple to your kitchen hardware, the range hood can serve as a beautiful focal point.

Let’s take a look at some different types of range hoods:

The Wall Mount Hood

Pictured above is a distressed mantle wall mount hood we used in a recent kitchen remodeling job. The wall mount hood is perfect if your stove is placed adjacent to your wall and you have ample space for storage in other sections of your kitchen. This also allows for an easy method of ventilation, either straight above or back through the wall.

 

The Under Cabinet Mount

The under cabinet mount allows you to maintain some storage above the range hood. This is useful if you are tight on space. Choosing an under cabinet mount also takes attention away from the cooking area as it blends in with the rest of the kitchen fixtures quite well.

The Ceiling Mount

If you decide to go with an island stove, this is a must, and a beautiful option for a range hood. The ceiling, or island mount, is the go-to modern kitchen choice.
