Brief History of Range Hoods 

Kitchen design has come a long way over time, always evolving with the latest trends. As far as design goes, the range hood has also made tremendous strides in recent years, all while function is being simultaneously perfected. But why does that matter and what exactly is a range hood? A range hood is a piece of kitchen equipment that’s installed above a kitchen range. It was designed with the purpose of removing unwanted odors, smoke, or steam from the area while the range is in use. Many inventors made the range hood what it is today, innovating and changing details until the range hood as we know it today was created. The first patent was applied for in 1928 by Llyod W. Ray. Years later in 1937, a company called Vent-a-Hood began manufacturing range hoods consistently for consumers out of Dallas, Texas. Brands like Modern-Air, Faber, and ProLine branched off this idea and began producing their own variations of range hoods. Today, many more companies have begun producing these incredibly useful appliances, including our team here at CliqStudios.

Wood Range Hood Basics 

How important is it that a wood range hood is incorporated into your kitchen design? Well, if you or your client are planning on cooking often and want to maintain a clean space, then a wood range hood cover is key to include in the kitchen design. Beyond removing things like smoke and odors out of the air while cooking, it also helps minimize the clean-up process. If fumes, smoke, and odors are not removed during the cooking process, they will remain on the stove and surrounding countertops. These fumes then settle in and form a greasy residue which can be difficult to scrub clean even with some elbow grease. A range hood eliminates this obstacle and adds an element of sophistication to the overall design of the kitchen, especially if embellishments such as brass strapping are added to the wood range hood. Brass embellishments elevate the look of the entire range and allow it to serve as a focal point in the kitchen design itself.

Wood Range Hood Cover Details 

Range hoods are commonly covered with metals such as copper, stainless steel, bronze, or even glass. Wood range hood covers are the more traditional option which is what we specialize in at CliqStudios. These range hoods are constructed out of high-quality wood. Ventilation should be determined first which will dictate the style of range hood: under-mount, ceiling-mount, or wall-mount. Then, verify the dimensions so the range hood fits perfectly. Once that’s completed, it can be installed and final changes, such as embellishments, can be added to the exterior. Your preferred design style can be achieved by choosing the right style of range hood. For example, if you or your client prefer farmhouse style, then either a curved or tapered shape will match beautifully when paired with a complementary finish.

There are 3 main options when it comes to choosing a wood range hood style: under-mount, wall-mount, and ceiling-mount range hoods. As each of these names suggest, an under-mount range hood is attached to the bottom of kitchen wall cabinets, the wall-mount range hood is attached to the wall above the cooktop and the ceiling-mount range hood is attached to the ceiling above the stovetop. Of these 3 styles, an under-mount range hood is most commonly used in kitchen design. The size, style, and whether it is ductless or ducted all depend on the size of the kitchen in question. It’s typically best practice to choose a range hood that’s either the same size or slightly larger than the cooking surface, both for aesthetic and functional purposes. If the size of the range hood does not correlate with the size of the range, then it could cause a potential safety risk.

Cost, Height, & Other Details 

There are many details, practices, and complex steps involved when designing custom wood range hoods. For safety reasons, a range hood is required to be installed at least 24” inches above the stovetop. If the stovetop is gas rather than electric, then the height requirement is a bit higher, approximately 25” at minimum. If venting is not installed high enough, it will interfere with proper functioning of the range hood, and cause potential safety risks to those using it.  

As far as installation goes, CliqStudios uses a two-piece system. The apron and chimney. This type of installation system allows for the range hood to easily accommodate the recommended ventilation solutions that are offered to maintain industry standards.  

Wood kitchen hood costs can vary depending on the quality of the fan installed within the range hood, the material it’s constructed from, the size of the range hood, and the ventilation capabilities. This combination of variables will affect the overall cost. Average costs of a wood range hood are typically about $750, but it’s possible to find range hoods that vary in price from as low as $40 to as high as $1,000. The range hood you or your client choose will depend on budget, frequency of use, level of cooking design preferences, and size of the current cooktop etc. There are certainly options to fit everyone’s needs in low or high budget ranges.

Choose the Right Range Hood for You 

Deciding which range hood is best for you or your client will depend on a few things. First, figure out the design style of the kitchen. This will help you decide which style range hood will best fit the space based on any wish lists. In the end, it will be a much more cohesive design. Next, decide if the hood will be a focal point, or if it will blend with the rest of the kitchen cabinetry. From curved to sloped, angled, tapered, and box style, there are several wood range hood options for you or your client to choose between.

Matching a Custom Range Hood to The Right Style 

Everyone has their own design preferences, and each range hood will look best with a specific kitchen style. As of 2022, the top design styles are farmhouse, modern, cottage charm, and French country. The farmhouse style is all about rustic charm and straightforward design, so a curved range hood would match wonderfully. For a more modern kitchen design, a sleek choice like a sloped range hood with stainless steel strapping. On the other hand, cottage charm is associated with eclectic design, so a tapered wood range hood would play into that style well. If you lean more toward a French country style, which infuses both rustic and elegant elements, an angled or box range hood would be complimentary. At the end of the day, it’s up to you. Each style of range hood can be embellished or finished to coordinate with any of these popular kitchen design styles. The ability to create a custom range hood makes this possible.
