Choosing the right type of hood

for your kitchen.

Cooker hoods.

When it comes to cooker hoods, the huge amount of choice can feel overwhelming. Here, we have put a small guide together of the main types, to help guide you through the process:

Worktop ventilation

Worktop vents are very sleek and modern, and save a lot of space. They can be integrated into a hob (see Venting hobs section above), or hidden below the counter.

Downdraft air system

Downdraft air units are basically invisible until needed. They sit hidden in the worktop, behind the hob, then at the touch of a button they appear and start the ventilation.

Chimney hoods

Chimney hoods are a very traditional yet popular choice. They are fixed to the wall above the hob or cooker. They come in a vast range of styles and shapes; Angled hoods, boxed hoods, pyramid hoods and flat hoods. There is a lot of choice to suit your own personal style and taste!

Island chimney hoods.

Island hoods hang from the ceiling over a peninsular or island. They are often the kitchens main focal point and can look very striking.

Telescopic hoods.

Telescopic hoods are a great way to save space in smaller kitchens. They pull out from under a cabinet when needed, so they are basically invisible until needed. They look fantastic in modern, streamlined kitchens.

Extraction or recirculating?

With Extractor hoods, the air is sent from your kitchen to outside, but with recirculating hoods, the air is pumped through a filter and sent back into the kitchen. As well as all the above, there are various other integrated appliances to choose from, including:

Bespoke kitchens, bedrooms & home studies built with love, care and attention to detail.
