Island Range Hoods are a type of hoods which particularly designed for kitchens with island cook tops. These are more common in modern-style kitchens. Suspended from the ceiling, you can make your selection from a variety of island hoods such as stainless steel, tempered glass, powder coat finish, copper, and brass.
You can play around a lot with different styles and concepts when designing a new kitchen, but when you're just purchasing one to enhance your kitchen, then that might be a bit harder. But just like with almost everything else, the Worldwide Web is a very powerful tool when it comes to finding the best kitchen range hood for you.
If there is already a cabinet above where you want your range to be located then your solution is to either have a carpenter shorten the cabinet or replace it with a shorter cabinet that will give more breathing space to the range underneath it. Wiring is a consideration as well. A ductless range hood would require that you shorten the cabinet and do the required wiring before you install your range. Ducted kitchen range hoods are different and require an opening in the cabinet's bottom to accommodate the ducting. Another hole will be needed for the exhaust.
It goes without saying that the faster the fan speed the better it is at removing the cooking air from the stove. Most kitchen range hoods come with either a two or three fan speed. It is advisable to buy a range hood that is at least a three speed fan. Another factor is to think about how quiet this fan motor will operate when in use. The faster the fan works, the noisier it will be. You really want to try and find a fan motor that is as quiet as possible, and this is especially important is you have an open plan kitchen that joins the dining room or the living room.
It's safest to just pull out whatever old system exists and install your modern appliance and range hood. You'll need to know where you want your new range to go in your kitchen. If you have ample space then you may want an island range in which case you'll need to consider the different island range hoods available. The most popular of types for an island are stand alone hoods that are stylish and functional.
When choosing a kitchen range hood it can be quite confusing. You need to decide on whether the air that is extracted from the stove is either recalculated back into the kitchen, or if this air is extracted outside of the house. You also need to decide on whether to buy a wall mounted range hood, or install a hood that is mounted to the ceiling. These easy to follow tips will help break down each option to help you decide on which ventilation system to by for your kitchen.
Kitchen hoods have different ways of dealing with cooking steam and fumes from the stove. You will find a range hood that simple extracts the air from the stove and then vents this air outside the home. You then find kitchen hoods that extract the cooking steam from the stove and clean it through a series of filters before this steam is then re-circulated back into the kitchen.
