The Beauty of Modern Range Hoods

Modern Range Hoods

Modern range hoods have the potential to bring your kitchen together with elegance. In addition to providing a beautiful accent to the kitchen, these kitchen appliances also provide an important function.

In this article, we’re taking a closer look at the beauty of modern range hoods.

The Beauty of Modern Range Hoods

Thankfully, the designers around the world rake care of bringing beauty into our lives, whether we are creative or not. With designs for our home’s exterior and interior, we always have something eye-catching and pleasing, don’t we?

When it comes to modern designs, particularly in the kitchen, the idea is to have a sleek look with well-defined lines and very minimal clutter. Using little to no hardware on appliances and cabinetry also enhances this sleek look.

So, what happens to your incredibly designed modern kitchen when you have to add something, say, bulky – like a range hood? Well, you make it part of the décor, of course!

Just because something is necessary doesn’t mean it has to look like it is. The range hood in your kitchen is needed for many different reasons. But, that doesn’t mean it can’t be a beautiful addition to your space.

Let’s take a look at the beauty of modern range hoods.

The Air in Your Kitchen

As you begin to cook in your kitchen, aromas start to form. The smell of the spices begins to make you even more hungry. Though, before long, your kitchen begins getting a bit hot and steamy – and you question whether you are burning the food!

Here’s something you need to know: the aromas and steam that fill your kitchen as you are cooking can actually contain harmful particles – and you are sending them straight into the air you and your family breathe.

The specific particles and gases your food emits will highly depend on what you are cooing and how you are cooking it – as well as what you are using to cook your food. Cooking methods that use high-heat, such as broiling, frying, and deep-frying, can release more of these dangerous particles into your air.

So, what could you be breathing in your kitchen while you cook? According to Harvard’s School of Public Health’s research on cooking emissions, you may just find the following:

  • Ultra-fine food particles (also known as UFPs)
  • Carbon monoxide (HCHO)
  • Formaldehyde (CO)
  • Nitrogen dioxide (NO2)
  • Acrolein
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)

Keep in mind that this is just an overview of what may be in your kitchen. This will depend greatly on your cooking habits and such.

You Need A Range Hood

Are you wondering how you get all of the above dangers out of your kitchen and away from your family? If so, here’s your answer: You need a range hood.

A range hood is an appliance that is installed directly above your range. Its fan and filter work together to vent the unwanted air out of your kitchen. Heat, steam, smoke, smells, and the variety of things listed above can all be cycled out of the kitchen. In return, you get clean, fresh, filtered air. You simply need to use it each and every time you use your range.

Don’t worry about this appliance damaging your kitchen design – you have options depending on your kitchen design, setup, and personal preference. While there are many types of range hoods, the under cabinet and wall-mounted seem to be the most efficient and most desired designs. Both of these look great and work well to reduce the negative particles in your kitchen air.
