A Work of Art The copper range hoods of today are not only functional but beautiful. They come in a variety of styles that lend themselves to any type of kitchen décor from contemporary to traditional. In fact, they can become a centerpiece to add interest to the kitchen, impressing friends and family with ease. The kitchen is always a gathering place, so why not make it perfect? Investing in custom hoods, or long-lasting copper versions is a smart move for any homeowner. Their lasting beauty will not only treat the air that one breathes, but up the overall value of the home in many ways. Of course, homeowners can always go for the under the cabinet style hood vent; but adding an artistic element is always a good choice. Regardless, the main function is to ventilate the air within the home, and a hood vent should be utilized every time something is cooked. This way, one can rest assured they and their family are residing in a healthy environment.
The hood consists of a skirt positioned over this surface at a height that is comfortable for the average user. The skirt surrounds grease filters backed by a fan that sucks air into the unit. Fans may feature several speed options. Most fans have at least two speed settings, one designed for operation during cooking, and one that is much quieter to be used during meals. Some advanced models have an automatic fan feature that turns the fan on when temperatures get too high. This feature is a signal to the fan that steam or smoke might be present in the air and the fan should be operating. Range hoods can also feature automatic shut-off timer options. Under-cabinet hoods. A very common type of range hood is an under-cabinet hood, which is installed beneath a cabinet above a stovetop. These hoods generally require piping and tubing to exhaust fumes, smoke and gas outside of the building. Wall-chimney hoods. These hanging hoods attach to the ceiling or wall and then exhaust air outside.
There are literally hundreds of designer range hood models on the market, with styles ranging from antique to the ultra-modern. Whether the kitchen design calls for a large angular "pro-style" hood, or a sleek Italian beauty with curved glass, or a classic hood with wood trim, there is a perfect design out there to match any kitchen. As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to install a range hood in your kitchen. Start your search by determining what type of hood youll need - wall-mount or island-mount, as well as the size - at least as wide as the range/cooktop, and style that fits your kitchen design and personal taste. Price-wise, range hoods vary from bargain-basement specials for under $ 200, to luxury designer units with price tags from $ 1500 to $ 5000, to outrageous custom hoods that can run into tens of thousands of dollars. Keep in mind that like all other major appliances, a range hood needs to be installed, so the cost of installation should be figured into the budget.
The old world craftsmanship of these range hoods is one of the most intriguing and desirable aspects of the hoods. The aesthetics, old world feel and range of styles means that there is a range hood for every style of kitchen. The professionally made aspect of the hoods is certainly one element that has seen such hoods receive significant acclaim. The skill that goes into creating the seamless design of these pieces of kitchen engineering is certainly a worthy talking point in the kitchen. The silence, yet amazing quality and efficiency of the fans also means they are vastly superior to alternatives. This efficiency will ensure they wont interrupt you as your kitchens talking point. The enduring beauty of these range hoods of course is another factor in their sought-after status. Choosing from a number of finishes is possible, with distressed antique copper, bronze, hammered aged copper and satin brushed copper all options as well as mirror polished, stainless polished, brass and satin brushed stainless finishes. These individual finishes can really create a very elegant and distinctive look in a range hood and certainly hark back to an older and more attractive time. For many they will find such finishes go beautifully with their current kitchens and contrast wonderfully against the current materials, whether modern, or natural.
