Published at Sunday, 03 February 2019. Kitchen Window and Ventilation Hood. By Osvald Henriksen.
A furniturelike Lacanche range is topped off with a custom plaster range hood. By painting the hood the same color as the walls, the hood could easily fade into the background. It's the one-of-a-kind shape that makes it a definite focal point in the room. Window treatments, I’ve noticed, are often left out in kitchen renovations, even when other elements are carefully chosen for a period-inspired look. Curtains or shades give a more finished appearance, in addition to being practical for regulating light and privacy
I got a copy of the GE Monogram installation instructions, and discovered that they were remarkably unhelpful. Astonishingly, the instructions make no mention of the range hood’s requirement for makeup air. The issue was deflected by a confusing reminder that combustion appliances require adequate combustion air: “Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gases through the flue (chimney) of fuelburning equipment to prevent backdrafting.”
As houses have become better insulated, and with high-BTU commercial-style ranges ever more popular, proper ventilation has become an increasingly important issue. Picking the right hood requires you to take into account the power of your range and the way you use it, but it's also a huge style decision for your kitchen.
