Kitchen Hoods in Baton Rouge: Frequently Asked QuestionsIt’s that time of the year where people are researching what to get their kids for Christmas.  From reading reviews to Googling specific toys and reading the FAQ section of websites, a lot of work goes into placing that perfect gift under the tree.  At the same time between preparing cookies for Santa and dinner for the family, it may also be time for a kitchen enhancement.  So as you gain more information than you ever cared to about the latest video game or doll, it may also be time to see how a custom kitchen hood can improve the warmest room in your home, your kitchen.  To make things a little simpler, here are some common questions and answers about what a range hood can do.

  • Why would I want a kitchen hood?

Kitchen hoods, or range hoods, filter out the grease, odors and other harmful things in the air that occur as we cook.  The blower in the range hood takes all of these pollutants and filters them out of your home, keeping them from coating the walls, cabinets, counters and furniture in your kitchen.

  • What do they look like?

The benefit of a custom kitchen hood is that they can be crafted to fit in with your current décor, adjusted to meet a redesign you may have in mind, or to simply dress up your kitchen.  The most popular material is copper. 

  • What features can come on a hood?

For starters the blower and fan create a cooler, cleaner environment in the kitchen.  Additional lighting can also be included.  With LED lighting the cooking experience can be dramatically enhanced. 

  • How will this help the value of my home?

Arguably the most important detail of a home to a prospective buyer is the kitchen.  With a beautiful, ornate range hood that keeps the air clean, kitchen lit and room cool can be a major differentiator if and when your home is on the market.

While there is a lot on your plate this time of the year, making some home improvements as the year changes can be a great option.  Cribbs Incorporated has been improving Baton Rouge homes with beautiful, custom kitchen hoods for decades.  For more information, click here.
