If you have landed on this article, we assume that you are in search of range hoods that perfectly fits in your kitchen and sit well with the overall design. However, it can be a little confusing considering the number of options available online as well as in stores.
Therefore, we have classified several types of range hoods, only to make your decision easier.
- Under Cabinet Range Hoods
These are one of the most common range hoods due to their compactness and ventilation methods. An under-cabinet range hood is installed underneath the cabinets placed right above the stove.
This type of range hood is simple yet versatile enough to fit in a variety of kitchen styles.
- Wall Mounted Range Hoods
These types of hoods are mounted over the wall above the stove. Many new kitchen designs incorporate a range hood instead of the cabinet above the stove on a wall.
However, if you have a cabinet installed already above your range and you still want a wall-mounted hood, you can always ask the installation team to remove the cabinetry.
Wall Mounted Range Hoods typically come with a chimney for ventilation purposes.
- Island Range Hood
If your stove is not placed against a wall, no need to worry. Island Range Hoods are specially made for such type of hoods. These are mounted on the ceiling and hence, also called “ceiling-mounted hoods.”
- Ductless Range Hood
The ductless range hood is an additional feature or option that comes with wall, island, or cabinet range hoods. These range hoods don’t technically suck all the impurities away but can efficiently direct it all away from the stovetop.
This type of hood is not recommended because it disperses the odors, steam, and gases in the kitchen and then eventually to the rest out of the house.
