The choice between these two styles of hood will depend where your cook top is located, if it is in an island or peninsula setup you will need to buy an island range hood. If however your range is next to a wall, then a wall-mount hood will do. An island range hood is a unit that sits above your cook top that that consists of a ventilating fan unit and a filtration system that is used to absorb the moisture, grease and odor from the air within your kitchen. The importance of this is that these grimy pollutants are kept from spreading over the surfaces of your kitchen and instead are expunged from the air in which you are cooking.
