3 Reasons Why You Need a Range Hood in Your Kitchen

Of course, a range hood can be beautiful, but it also serves a very important function: ventilation.  Ventilation may not be the first thing you think about when remodeling your kitchen, but it is certainly an important aspect.  It is important to note that the size of your selected range will determine the minimum CFM that the vent must have.

Proper ventilation in your kitchen will help preserve your cabinetry investment, improve overall air quality, and bring style to your home.

A Range Hood Protects Your Cabinetry Investment

Remodeling your kitchen can be a huge investment for homeowners, typically ranging from eight to 16 percent of your home’s total value, so it is vital to take steps to protect it.  Having a proper range hood in the kitchen will prevent damage to the cabinets from cooking grease and humidity caused by steam. 

When you cook without ventilation, grease floats into the air and onto your cabinets, causing deterioration over time.  A properly outfitted range hood will remove the grease from the air and will help keep your space clean and protect your cabinetry from premature aging.

Improve Overall Home Air Quality with a Range Hood

A range hood can help improve overall home air quality.  Contaminants from cooking can creep out of your kitchen and into other areas of your home without proper ventilation.  Pollutants from cooking can deteriorate air quality and be harmful to you and your family.

This is something we see more often as the popularity of open concept living continues to thrive.  Open floorplans increase the possibility of kitchen smells, smoke and grease permeating other rooms.  Proper ventilation can reduce this and protect not only your kitchen, but the other rooms of your home.

Range Hoods Bring Style to Your Home

Range hoods can be a focal point in a beautiful kitchen.  With so many beautiful options to fit everyone’s personal style, it’s become very easy to find a hood that fits into the design of your kitchen and home aesthetic.  A statement hood can really tie together the entire look of your kitchen and elevate the design.

There are multiple options ranging from stainless steel designs to match appliances to solid wood designs that blend seamlessly with your cabinetry.  Range hoods in beautiful standout finishes, like copper, are also fantastic options for people who want something a little more unique.
