Your rangehood is a vital part of your kitchen. There are many options out there, from the more modern, square profile hoods, to ones with glass curves, triangle formations and undermounted models that can be concealed within joinery to provide a more minimalist look. All in all, do your homework before purchasing this appliance as there are many things to take into consideration from ventilation and flue types, fan force and the noise they make when turned on at full strength!
Whether you're installing a new rangehood or replacing an old one, there are a few basic things that you should look out for. There are a couple of different types of rangehoods you can buy, one has a charcoal filter which does not require exterior ducting and there are ducted range hoods.
It's a lot easier to install ducting that goes directly through an exterior wall than a system that needs to travel through your roof.
It's important to have solid fixings in the wall in order for the range hood to be securely fastened.
