Hoods in the interior of the kitchen
One of the list of the most important elements in the kitchen is a hood. With proper selection and installation, it saves households from various smells, soot, fumes and smoke, which inevitably appear in the process of cooking. In addition, in our modern age, hoods play a significant role in the interior of the kitchen.
Today, stores offer a variety of models of these devices. But most of the hoods are quite difficult to fit into the overall design idea. Any person who wants to purchase the best option that can complement and decorate a particular kitchen should know some of the characteristics of these appliances.
The hoods are divided into 3 main groups according to their mode of operation. Circulating purify the air, driving it through its many filters. Flowing - they inhale steam, soot and odors into the ventilation pipe and push them outside. The withdrawal / circulation mode combines the above properties, so that it is possible to clean the air in the summer and retain heat in the building by circulating it in the winter.
Built-in exhaust devices - the optimal solution for small spaces. As a rule, these models are built into the countertop, kitchen cabinet, freely extendable and function when it is closed. But in this case there is a problem of matching the size of the cabinet where the hood is located, and the rest in the kitchen, so as not to allocate it, but to hide it.
Suspended exhaust devices received the most popular among the population. A set of fasteners device is attached to the wall, under the cabinet or in the corner. This option is budget and easy to handle. The dimensions of these devices are absolutely diverse. Depending on your desire, you can purchase a small flat device, as well as a large device. Such hoods are more in line with the modern, high-tech styles, but do not correspond to the classical style.
In dome models, the case resembles a trapezoid, cylindrical, cone-shaped dome and other shapes. Air enters it, and subsequently goes to the ventilation shaft.
Also, kitchen hoods are straight and oblique (currently trendy), which have several advantages:
- almost silent, since in inclined models the engine is more advanced from a technical point of view;
- have relatively small sizes (from 50 cm).
Dome type hoods are more versatile than others. They can fit into a variety of styles of kitchen design. But, since their dimensions are quite impressive, they attract attention to themselves, the wrong shape or color spoils the whole idea. Informally, we can distinguish three types of these devices: "country" (wood), "modern" and "classic" (metal). Metal hoods are well combined with wooden or plastic furniture, fit well in the gloss of the kitchen, and in matte design. If desired, these hoods can be decorated with wood, plastic, stones, etc. for giving of chic and high cost.
Hoods attached to the wall, resemble an umbrella and play a special role in the interior of the kitchen. It should be chosen according to the color of the kitchen set or, on the contrary, to play on the contrast with the color of the walls.
Island - the most original. Such devices are attached to the ceiling and emphasize the volume of the room. Not harmonizing with the forms or the color of the kitchen, they can ruin the whole picture, so their appearance should be consistent with the overall style of the kitchen. It is best to place island hoods should be in large rooms, decorated in bright colors.
Characteristics such as performance, indicates the amount of air passed through the exhaust structure for one hour. Performance directly depends on the size of the kitchen. Improper hood, not coping with their duties, can harm the interior for a rather short period. To calculate it correctly, it is proposed to multiply the height by the kitchen area, and then by 10-12. The final number is equal to the optimal value.
For example, for a kitchen area - 10 sq.m., height - 2.7 m. Required capacity for this room is - 270-330 cubic meters / h.
Additional equipment, material and colors
Modern devices have additional functional properties: lights, air speed change regulator, timer, display, remote control, anti-return valve that prevents polluted air from returning to the kitchen room when the hood is off.
Materials and parts must have chemical, thermal and mechanical resistance.
For this, galvanized or stainless steel, aluminum, brass is used. Coloring enamels increases corrosion resistance and attractiveness. Powder coating gives a high-quality resistant decorative polymer layer.
Copper, glass, and also extracts consisting of combined materials are also in demand.
If desired, now you can find the hood of any color for any taste and interior idea. White, black, brown, with patterns, images of flowers, decorated with artificial stone, painting, chasing, and inserts of pieces of precious wood are offered.

If the hood does not fit into the overall design plan, then it can be hidden with the help of various hanging cabinets, decorative elements, facing materials, and, of course, the scope of imagination.
