As far as wall attached hoods are concerned, a cabinetmaker has a huge variety of types to choose from:

Sliding hood, underneaths the hanging cabinets. The exhaust engine starts when the hood is pulled forward. Mounted underneath the hanging cabinets, visible or hidden by the front of the cabinet. Open and visible exhaust hoods give your kitchen an additional design touch, but the space above the oven can not be used for storage. Visible and angled, most of the time with a combination of steel/aluminum and glass will certainly give the kitchen something special.

Not only the simple size of the hood, but also its design can change the impression of your kitchen design. In modern cabinetmaking one has to be aware of the interchange between furniture and appliance. Put it in a more philosophical phrase, clever chosen and integrated kitchen appliances will not just upgrade the usability of the kitchen, but also reflect the knowledge and pride of the cabinetmaker. As the following examples of kitchen exhaust hoods show, designers find new and sometimes very impressive ways to combine the technical need of an exhausting system with perfect elegant design.
