You need to keep your cooking space clean, and a quality range hood will filter all the smoke, grease, and steam from your cooktop out of the kitchen. From under cabinet hoods and downdraft range hoods to convertible hoods and wall mount hoods, there are options to fit any kitchen style. If your cooktop is centered in an island, you’ll definitely want to invest in an island hood.
An island hood works just like any other hood, using a fan to collect all the smoke, steam, and food particles from your cooking area and pushing it out of your kitchen. These hoods come in two distinct styles — ducted or ductless. A ducted island hood uses a fan to push air and waste out of your home through a vent. To install a ducted island hood, you’ll need to have preexisting vents above your island in your home.
Ductless island hoods still use a fan to collect dirty air, but pump it past filters that trap odor and grease before recirculating the air into your kitchen. These island hoods work just as well as ducted ones. Whether you go ducted or ductless, you’ll be able to find a host of designs to fit the aesthetic of your kitchen beautifully.
