10 Easy Pieces: Ceiling-Mounted Kitchen Range Hoods

March 7, 2018

If you’ve survived a kitchen remodel, you might remember that choosing a vent hood is one of the least exciting (but crucial) parts of the process. And if your kitchen has a cooktop or range located in a central location, i.e. an island, your choice becomes more important, since the hood will become a visual focal point.

When it comes to ceiling-mounted vent hoods, the canopy should extend past the perimeter of the cooktop. Most of the styles we show here are convertible: They can be either vented—that is, attached to a vent or duct that sends cooking odors, heat, and grease to the outdoors—or unvented, by adding a recirculation option with charcoal filters to clean the air. (For more, see Remodeling 101: The Verdict on Vented vs. Non-Vented Range Hoods).
