How to find the right extractor hood
Your extractor hood efficiently clears odours, grease, and steam, ensuring a refreshing ambiance in your kitchen. Beyond its primary function, the hood also serves as a defining element of your kitchen's aesthetic. Allow us to help you pinpoint an extractor hood that flawlessly balances function with design elegance.
5 decisive factors for your choice of extractor hood
Every kitchen is unique, each with its own distinct needs in terms of functionality and design. Here are five key considerations to guide you in choosing the perfect extractor hood for your space.
For expansive kitchens, a more potent extractor hood is necessary compared to compact spaces. To determine the appropriate air capacity for your hood, simply multiply the kitchen's dimensions in meters (L x W x H) by 10. This will give you an accurate measure tailored to your kitchen's size.
Width of the hob
For optimal performance, the extractor hood should match or exceed the width of the hob.
The kitchen style
Do you envision your extractor hood as a focal point or prefer it to meld seamlessly with your kitchen's aesthetic? Whatever your preference, a myriad of design options awaits to fulfil your vision.
The noise level of the extractor hood
Preserve the serenity of your kitchen! A 57 dB noise level is deemed quiet for an extractor hood. However, the significance you assign to this factor is your call. Opt for what best complements your kitchen's ambiance.
Extraction or recirculation?
Extraction hoods expel fumes and steam directly outside, ensuring fresh air in the kitchen. In contrast, recirculation hoods pull in these fumes, cleanse them using a charcoal filter, and then reintroduce the purified air back into the space. Each type has its own set of pros and cons to consider based on your kitchen's configuration and your preferences.

Extractor Hood: Extraction or recirculation?
Extractor hoods with ventilation systems efficiently dispel steam and odours from your home. Traditionally, this has been the most effective method, though it might not be suitable for every household.
Recirculating extractor hoods, on the other hand, absorb the odours and neutralize them using a charcoal filter before reintroducing purified air into the kitchen. For peak performance, it's advisable to clean or replace the charcoal filter between once and thrice a year.
While older models struggled to expel cooking steam, modern technology has bridged this gap. Today, many recirculating extractor hoods rival their ventilating counterparts in effectiveness.
