Thanks Mangofifa. When I designed this kitchen I had originally spec'd a cylindrical Franke hood. Then they discontinued it! so I had to search for a replacement, which wasn't easy as most of the others are not true cylinders or telescoping and therefore have a seam. (Which I really didnt like) I finally found these Futoro ones (thank you Google :) and they are not only beautiful and well made, but also better priced than they Franke's were.

Yes, an island hood can almost always be used next to a wall, with very rare exceptions.

An island hood attaches to the ceiling - so it can be *anywhere* in the room, from the center island to the wall.

This solution is especially useful if your cooktop or range is in front of a window.

Here are a few examples of island hoods being used in wall applications. Visit www.FuturoFuturo.com to see all of our 230+ designer range hood models - and over 4,000 kitchen photos!

Hi kwitehurst1- Inslalling a 28 " Blomberg ref. in one of my projects now. Good choice. I would recommend a ductless hood with charcoal filters. Cooking of any type makes an oily steam vapor which is just brutal on almost any type of cabinet surface. You would be losing only about 8" of cabinet height, a fair enough tradeoff for the hood's value in this situation. Just get a good one. Compare CFMs, multi light source,and easy to clean filters. Plan on spending $ 300-$400. Trust me, will be worth it

The biggest problem with many recirculating hoods is the lack of performance. What many people don't realize - and what many manufacturers won't mention - is that the charcoal filters that are necessary for recirculating operation, also reduce the airflow by as much as 40-45%.

The way a recirculating range hood works is, in simple terms - the metal filters absorb the grease, and the charcoal filters absorb the odors, then the cleaned air gets recirculated back into the room. Unfortunately, the noise, moisture, and waste heat will also be recirculated - this is why it's always recommended to connect a range hood to an outside duct rather than recirculate.

If you start out with a typical "budget" hood design with a 200-300 CFM blower, then you put a charcoal filter on it, you're getting at best 150 CFM or so... which is not enough to handle any kind of serious cooking.

Those "Builder special" $ 100 range hoods, combination microwave-hoods, and undercabinet hoods, are useless with a charcoal filter. There's simply not enough room to put in a normal-sized blower, and the charcoal filter destroys what little airflow there is to begin with.

Now, if you consider a REAL range hood, with 800-1000 CFM, then even after the performance penalty of the charcoal filter, you still end up with 350-400 CFM, which is much more reasonable.

We offer 230+ models of designer range hoods, all of which can be either connected to an outside duct, or installed as recirculating, with the optional charcoal filters. Please feel free to view our products listed on Houzz, or visit www.FuturoFuturo.com for in-depth info and multiple photos.

A quick look turned up a website that's not loading, and an Apache server error.

That being said, there are plenty of solutions for locating a range hood in the corner.

An island-mount hood can be installed in the corner - it's attached to the ceiling, so it can be positioned anywhere in the room.

A partition could be built behind the range, and a standard wall-mount range hood attached to that.

An insert could be placed inside a cabinet, and the cabinet installed at an angle, with the appropriate backing/bracing behind it.

Etc, etc.

I was not a fan of the traditional glass mosaic tiles, and decided to go with slate tile as my backsplash. I just feel like it gives the kitchen that much more character.

This is an example of a custom-built range hood, usually created by the cabinet builder / kitchen builder, or sometimes the local contractor or artisan (if making a stone/plaster hood instead of wood).

Inside the hood enclosure / cabinet, there is an "off-the-shelf" hood insert, which is a full-featured range hood without the outer body, designed specifically for in-cabinet installation.

With a premanufactured insert, you get the quality and warranty coverage of a major manufacturer, and with the custom surround, you get the personalization you want - the best of both worlds!

We have created an informative page with some image galleries, for this very topic. Please feel free to take a look on our website: http://www.futurofuturo.com/rangehood-FAQ-custom-range-hoods-and-inserts.php

This model is actually one of our most efficient range hoods in the market, equiped with Chef Control that adapts to the aspiration levels you need with the minimum sound thanks to its Synairgy Technology that converts the motor into a silent/nofriction/novibration machine.

Besides having a Perimeter Aspiration which makes the vapors go to the hood directly to be absorbed by every side.

Same as an industrial range hood with style!! And of course italian ;)

Ventilation is the most important appliance in the kitchen. If you don't have or don't use, the steam and vapors distribute all over your house and permeate all your furniture and fabrics causing them to degrade faster.

@auntiebuzzybee & sandkshouse: this is an example of a "recirculating" or "ductless" or "ventless" (different names for the same thing) hood.

Unlike ducted hoods, which capture the grease and then transport the rest of the pollutants to the outside of the house, ductless hoods use metal filters to capture the grease, then use activated-charcoal filters ("carbon filters") to remove most of the odors, then recirculate the air back into the room.

In many locations, such as high-rise condominiums (Miami, Vancouver) and historic co-op apartments (Manhattan, Boston), it's impossible to vent to the outside. In a situation like this, a ductless hood, even though not as good as a ducted one, is still better than no ventilation at all.

At a minimum, a ductless hood will remove the grease, remove most of the odors, and circulate the air so the cooking area is kept at a comfortable temperature.

I like the look of the room. I even like the floating cabinets, but it does not seem functional. How would anyone get anything out of the floating cabinet that is between the outer cabinet and the range unless the were a center in the NBA? Also, the placement of the refrigerator is completely inconvenient.
But the hood looks great in the space. If that charcoal thing works, I think you are on to something!

We would recommend consulting with the manufacturer of the fireplace/firepit to find appropriate, and code-compliant, ventilation solutions.

This is not a "range hood" in the true sense. Range hoods are designed to go over cooking equipment, not fireplaces, and most kitchen-based range hoods will be damaged by this type of exposure.

Unique designs like this one (very cool, BTW!) are usually custom-made. Although some range hood manufacturers offer a wide variety of designs (we have over 230 models!), for a truly custom look, you need to have your kitchen cabinet maker or contractor build an enclosure to your personal tastes.

We have written an article on this topic - custom range hoods, inserts, and "hidden" ventilation - which includes some information as well as galleries of cabinet / custom hood ideas. Check it out:

Yes, unfortunately many people still install a microwave over a cooktop, and forego kitchen ventilation.

Some microwaves include a ventilation feature, but it's very noisy and definitely underpowered in comparison to an actual, full-size, range hood.

There are many benefits to having an actual range hood, including grease capture, fresh air flow, and temperature control. We have written an informative article on this topic - feel free to check it out:
