Range hoods are all the rage these days. Not only do they aid in the removal of heat, air pollution, and unpleasant odors, but they also have aesthetic value that can make any kitchen look a bit more sophisticated. Yet, with the varying range hoods available, it can be intimidating to understand the difference between the many styles and brands; and to know what options are best suited for your kitchen’s unique composition. A popular choice for smaller kitchens or kitchens with limited storage space is the under cabinet range hood. Possibly the most common type of range hood found in the average kitchen, this petite range hood fits conveniently under cabinets and above the stove just as the name denotes.

An under cabinet range hood can be used in apartments or rented homes where construction and renovation are not permitted. They are also a handy choice for those with limited kitchen space, as cabinets can either be installed or remain untouched while the range hood seamlessly performs its ventilation duties. Under cabinet range hoods are very affordable and can even be an easy DIY project if you already have ductwork and cabinetry installed. Photo Credit: ixerion.com
With so many options to choose from, it can be intimidating to pick out the right under cabinet range hood for your kitchen, and unless you’re a home improvement expert, you might not be familiar with the most trusted brands when it comes to upgrading your kitchen ventilation system.
