Island Range Hoods: The Centerpiece In Modern Kitchens
A kitchen island range is the ultimate in cooking freedom. With the ability to move freely around your entire range with no walls in place means that you can easily access every single burner on your range without having to reach over other hot pots or boiling waters. But having your range in the middle of your kitchen means that cooking smells, smokes, vapors, and odors have that much more space to linger. They’ll naturally float in all directions, filling your kitchen and house with remnants of recipes long after you’ve finished cooking. A range hood can help with all of that. They’ll quietly whir to life as you cook, capturing vapors from boiling, steams and smokes from sautéing, and more as they all float upward towards your kitchen’s ceiling.
Island Range Hoods that Stand Out
Just as island ranges are the standout feature of an airy, open design kitchen, so too are the island range hoods that go with them. These centerpieces aren’t like their more common peers that hide under cabinets or inside of wood overlays. Island range hoods don’t have a place to hide. They stick out, by design: extending down from a kitchen ceiling like an industrial stalactite. Because of this, an island range isn’t just a piece of kitchen equipment designed to help you cook. It’s a fashion piece: one that ties a room together with a stylish presence while offering high-quality functionality to your island kitchen. The island range hoods Living Direct offers are sure to stand out with an eye-catching appearance. With a variety of sleek designs, these hoods have no need to hide. They’ll add to your cooking process, and they’ll add to your kitchen style.
Breathe Easy with an Island Range Hood
While an island range hood is a style piece, it’s also a boon to the air around you as you cook. During the cooking process, steam, vapors, and odors move up into the air of your kitchen. Without a range hood, they linger, slowly spreading out into the entirety of your kitchen and eventually your entire house, staying until they finally dissipate. If you’ve ever accidentally burned something in the oven—you know how long that burnt smell can last.
A range hood is an important part of dealing with odors and smokes that linger. Their powerful fans come on with the quick press of a button, as they quickly and expertly collect and trap skyward smokes and smells. Additionally, range hoods are a perfect way to deal with aerosol grease. During the cooking process, grease particles naturally float up and mingle with the air while hot, before cooling down and eventually settling into a greasy coat that will leave your appliances and countertops feeling sticky, greasy, and less-than-new. Our range hood fans are powerful enough that they suck up these invasive grease particles before depositing them into contained grease traps. There, away from your pristine kitchen surfaces, the particles will harden and sit for easy cleanup on a regular basis.
