Benefits of putting a range hood in your home's kitchen
- The inherent benefits of installing a kitchen hood start with cleanliness. Smoke and other cooking fumes can over time stick to the surfaces and walls of your kitchen, making the surfaces much harder to clean. Cabinetry, countertops, and handles are often impacted negatively by the high temperature gases that escape the stove top without proper ventilation. Range hoods circulate gases, fumes, and steam away from your cooking space, giving you some room to breathe.
- Range hoods are often equipped with built-in over the stove lighting, making food prep and measuring a breeze. In kitchens without cabinetry over the stove, hoods are an excellent way to integrate lighting to make your cook space a well lit, safe area. Range hoods are available with halogen or LED built-in lighting.
- Properly ventilating a cooking space is essential. Trace amounts of carbon monoxide are often found in cooking fumes and can build up to dangerous levels if not ventilated and properly circulated out of the kitchen. In addition to fumes, hoods cool kitchens off by removing heat and steamy condensation as well.
- The monetary value a range hood can add to your home can be substantial. With countless options and features available, hoods have the capability of becoming one of the most luxurious and prominent fixtures within the home. Often times, home buyers love to see custom, unique looking features that both draw the eye and add functionality to a home. Invest in a beautiful American made hood that is guaranteed to last a lifetime and your home's value will surely increase.

Wall mounted range hoods are the most common form of residential hood installation. This type of hood attaches directly to the wall above the stove. These type of hoods may also be known as wall-mounted chimneys, as they are designed to circulate air up and away from the cooking space. Wall mount range hoods are wider at the base and narrow towards the vent, ideally stretching the full length of the stove in order to capture anything that arises. Wall mounting a hood is a great option for homeowners who seek a beautiful focal point in their kitchen. Custom specifications and features are available on any wall mounted range hood design.
Island range hoods are often installed in kitchens where the stove does not have a wall above it to mount the fixture to. If you have an island with a stove, a hood hung over the island is the most effective option for circulating air up and away from the cook space. Rather than vent to connecting ducts on the wall, an island hood will connect directly to the ceiling and circulate air up and out that way. This style of hood is the most logical choice for homeowners who cook on their island's stove top.
the dimensions and size of your range hood
Hood Width: Wall mount copper or stainless steel range hoods should be approximately the same width as your stove cooking top. It's ok to go wider than your cooktop, but you shouldn't go smaller, as cook fumes will likely escape the ventilation. Dimensions can be completely customized, as we build to your specs.
Hood Height: A general rule of thumb for range hood height is that your fixture should be between 30" and 36" above your cooking top. The overall height of the hood is based primarily on personal preference, but we typically recommend 33" clearance above stove top for wall mount hoods, and 36" of clearance for island hoods.
ventilation options for your range hood
Motor In Hood: This includes a motor ventilated system integrated directly inside the interior of the hood and includes the hood's liner.
Motor in Attic: The motor will be installed in the attic as an assembly separate of the hood. This option includes the hood's underneath liner.
Liner Only: The hood liner may be purchased by itself, and does not include a motorized ventilation assembly.
No ventilation system, I'll provide my own.
Purchasing a copper or stainless steel hood with a motor presents different power options for the customer. The ventilation systems are power rated using CFM (cubic feet per minute). We recommend 100-150 CFM per linear foot for the range hood, as per the information found on the Home Ventilating Institute.
Decorative options & features for your hood
Range hoods can be fabricated in a wide variety of shapes, with many different levels of customization. Personalizing your range hood with decorative features is a great way to compliment other kitchen features and give your kitchen a truly unique vibe.
Crown molding - Wrapping the range hood with custom crown molding is a great way to aesthetically compliment the shape of the hood and present a detailed appearance. Crown molding can be wrapped to any part of the hood but is typically featured on the top or the bottom.
Rivets, Fasteners, Clavos - Accenting your hood with ornamental rivets is an excellent way to add some style to your piece. These decorative features vary in size, and can be assorted on the hood in a variety of patterns. Rivets, fasteners, and clavos are usually copper, stainless steel, or brass.
Banding & Strapping - Custom banding and strapping is aesthetically pleasing towards the hood's design, as they accent the angles and curvature of the fixture. Banding and ornamental strapping can be added to your custom rage hood in copper, stainless steel, brass, and iron.
