Kitchen Hood and Hob in a Small Space

When you are trying to design your kitchen, the amount of space you can work with is often at a premium or limited in size. This can make finding a spot for your cooker hob and hood challenging.

At the same time, you have so many cooker hoods and hob models to choose from, each with varying features and technical specifications, making it more challenging to know which type is right for your small kitchen. Here are some tips and tricks to pair your cooker hood and hob in a small space.

Tips for Pairing Kitchen Hood and Hob

Tip 1: Consider Your Kitchen Design

Installing the cooker hood and hob in your small kitchen space can be challenging, especially if you’re unsure of their placement. A standard solution is to install the hob and hood on one side of your kitchen to ensure direct absorption of grease and odour while you’re cooking.

Meanwhile, consider discussing with your interior designer for the best kitchen design and layout before performing any ducting/piping works. Choose a suitable hood shape that fit best into the available space and whether it’s a good match with your kitchen design concept. Then, get advice from the contractor whether they can cover up the exposed exhaust hose by running the ducting through the cabinets.

Tip 2: Consider Your Lifestyle

Cooking in a small kitchen can be challenging if you’re an avid cook. However, it shouldn’t faze you as much as your choice in a trustworthy cooker hood and hob. An induction hob is your best option for a space-saving kitchen as it uses electricity to generate heat without any flames. Depending on your usage, you may select a hob that comes with 2 or 3 burners.

If you have young children who often pop up in the kitchen while you’re cooking, you will need a cooking hob with child safety features to prevent unwanted accidents. If they insist on staying with you in the kitchen, the right cooker hood should operate at low sound level, allowing you to enjoy the activity with your loved ones.

Tip 3: Consider Your Budget

Designing your dream kitchen doesn’t come easy, especially when purchasing major kitchen appliances, like the cooker hood and hob, as these can be expensive sometimes. Besides, the best choice isn’t always the cheapest.

When buying your cooker hob and hood, compare the appliances’ quality and function with the price. You also have to consider your future expenses once these appliances are installed. With FUJIOH cooker hood, you get efficient suction power, oil separating and capturing technology with unique coating that makes it easy to maintain in the long run.
