Shopping for wall mount range hoods? We've got you covered with everything you need to know about shopping for a wall mount range hood. Get ready to become a range hood expert as we cover everything you need to know before you purchase a wall hood.

Know the correct size that you will need

When shopping for wall mount range hoods, finding the correct size for your kitchen requirements is crucial. The rule of thumb is to make sure that your range hood width is at least one size larger than your cooktop size.

This means that your range hood should be overlapping your cooktop by 3 to 6 inches on each side. For example, if your cooktop size is 30”, it would be ideal for you to purchase a range hood that is 36” or 42” in width.

Pick the right wall mount range hood style

Finding the perfect wall mount range hood style for your kitchen may feel overwhelming. For example, you may be a fan of modern range hoods, but if your kitchen is very traditional you may want to rethink your decision. This is to avoid clashing with your original design style and to make sure that your wall mount range hood matches your original kitchen design.

There are many different routes you can take when choosing your perfect wall mount range hood. You can go the custom route and choose a custom range hood to really make a statement in your kitchen. Or, you can keep it clean and simple and install a stainless steel range hood in your ideal shape and size.

Understand your venting requirements

The first thing you need to know is if you are able to vent your range hood from the outside. If you are not able to vent your range hood from the outside due to your kitchen requirements, you should then look for recirculating range hoods or range hoods that come with recirculating kits.

However, this should not be your first option because it is always best to be eliminating toxins to the outside of your house and not back inside your home. So what is your best bet? To look for a range hood that vents to the outside.
