With more and more kitchens using islands as they bases for cooking ranges, it's inevitable that hoods had to change as well. We can't really have garishly big hoods looming over svelte kitchen islands, can we?
This stylish and new LuxAir hood range is simply modern and minimal. It's composed of a sleek, stainless steel cylinder surrounded by a canopy of 8mm-thick tempered glass, which is naturally shatterproof. It's also available in black and comes with a remote control. The manufacturer says that it's easy to install. It's got some nicely located push button controls, stainless grease filters, and optional carbon filters when you install a recirculating system. The 4 halogen lights really set this hood apart from any else that we've seen. They make this hood look more like lighting.
It's available for about $1,300 and noise levels will never exceed 57 dBA. We think that it looks really good and this sort of design is perfect for kitchen islands. If you are thinking of remodeling your kitchen, you should think about having a kitchen island with a stove and hood. It really frees up the look of your kitchen and takes cooking out of the corners.
