Home-cooked food is always the best due to its many benefits, and if you’re someone who agrees with this, then your kitchen would be a center of activity almost daily. After all, it is the place where you could be spending hours preparing a good meal for your family every day.

This is why it’s important to keep your kitchen clean and comfortable. In order to do this, having a cooker hood is one of the main basic appliances you can install in your kitchen as it helps to reduce the oil and grease left behind after cooking.

Installing a Cooker Hood

Installing a cooker hood is not an easy task, as there are a few things you should take note of when doing it. As it requires some ducting work and adding a new electrical circuit, it’s best to hire a qualified professional for the job.

When it comes to the cooker hood placement, you should know that it is usually installed above your cooktop to ensure optimum fume extraction to keep the air in your kitchen clean always.

Hence, you will need to measure the dimensions of your kitchen cabinets, ceiling height, and wall space to ensure that your new cooker hood can fit the space allotted. Consider the measurements as your references so that you can decide on the hood design, whether with a chimney, slanted or slim type .

You should also check with your residential management before performing any ducting work. Alternatively, you can opt for a ductless cooker hood that recirculates the air in your kitchen and doesn’t require you to make structural changes to the building.

Another thing you should know before installing a cooker hood is to consider your budget. You can calculate the estimated expenses, and it should include the installation fee, ducting, electricity, piping construction fee, interior design fee, etc.

By doing this, you can compare and select the right cooker hood in terms of quality and function, as well as according to your budget to build your dream kitchen.
