It’s easy to neglect the art of choosing the best rangehood for your kitchen because most of us look at a rangehood as something that is simply functional and because we don’t particularly know how it works (that’s our job!) we often don’t ask ourselves the right questions before we buy. And if you’re anything like me, there isn’t much worse than buying something and not being happy with it.
Our solid channel partner relationships, in many cases as the preferred installer in Sydney, mean that we come across a large range (no pun intended) of rangehoods that can suit any indoor or outdoor kitchen design. We also work closely with manufacturers to organise customised rangehoods just in case we don’t have what you want and need. When you’re choosing a rangehood for your kitchen, there are a few things you need to know.
And before you freak out, I want to clarify that you don’t need to know how your rangehood actually works (that’s our job).
Here are the 4 things you need to know before you choose your rangehood:
What types of food will you be cooking? Functionally, your rangehood will support and improve your cooking experience. The types of food you cook most of the time should be considered when you’re browsing rangehood options. Let us know what your favourite meals are and we can make sure you choose a rangehood that’s within your budget, elevates the design of your kitchen and tackles the cooking requirements of your favourite dishes.
How long do you plan to use the rangehood for? Maybe you’ll be selling your house soon and what happens after that is not your concern or maybe you plan to do another refurb in a few years. In any case, it’s good to think about how long you are likely to use your rangehood for so that we can help you choose a solution that suits the lifespan requirements you need.
Do you want your rangehood to be seen? This is a big one! As I said earlier, your rangehood serves your kitchen and your cooking experience from a functional perspective BUT it can also become an awesome design feature. If you don’t want your rangehood to stand out, there are options we can help you to source that are discrete and camouflage themselves in your kitchen.
How often do you cook? Similar to knowing what types of food you cook, it’s also important to think about how often you cook. If you’re a self-proclaimed masterchef or enjoy catching and then cooking squid like I do, you’ll probably need a rangehood solution that can handle higher volume but still operates efficiently.
Whether it’s your first time browsing rangehoods or you’ve done it a few times, these are 4 things you need to know before you choose your rangehood. My team and I pride ourselves on working closely with our clients and channel partners to make sure everyone gets their best rangehood with no mess and no stress.
