Benefits of a Wall Mount Range Hood.
A wall mounted range hood is the best range hood for your kitchen if you have space between your cabinets and the hood can attach directly to your wall. Other range hood types include island range hoods and under-cabinet range hoods, but a wall mount range hood is a common kitchen solution that helps keep kitchen air quality clean. Often times, it’s perfectly situated between two kitchen cabinets. Wall mounted range hoods help remove steam, grease, smoke and other particles that could be harmful to you when you’re in the kitchen.
Not only does a wall mount range hood keep your kitchen safer, but it adds unique style to your space. Are you drawn to the modern look of a wall-mounted black range hood or wall-mounted white range hood? Perhaps you prefer the timeless aesthetic of a wall-mounted stainless steel range hood. NO matter the material you like best, upgrading your range hood as part of a full kitchen remodel or as a touch-up will result in a kitchen that feels like new.
Wall Mount Range Hood Considerations.
Typically, you’ll want your wall mount range hood to be the same or a similar length to your cooktop. For example, if your gas range or electric range is 36 inches long, you’ll want a range hood that is equally long to help with proper ventilation.
Additionally, the larger your cooktop, the higher number CFM you’ll want. The amount of air that is pumped out is measured in cubic feet per minute, or CFM, which is a helpful consideration as you’re deciding which wall mount range hood to buy. If you use your stove often and using each burner at the same time is a common occurrence, we suggest looking for a 700 to 899 CFM wall mount range hood. If you have an electric cooktop or are more of a fan of pizza and takeout than you are of cooking, a 300 to 399 CFM wall mount range hood is perfectly acceptable.
