What is a Ceiling Cooker Hood?

A ceiling cooker hood is a kitchen ventilation system that is integrated into the ceiling of your kitchen. This means that, unlike regular cooker hoods, it doesn’t protrude out of the wall and take up valuable space.

The ceiling cooker hood is designed to be flush with your ceiling, giving a sleek, modern look to your kitchen. However, its modern design doesn’t compromise on power. In fact, most ceiling cooker hoods are highly rated for their ability to thoroughly ventilate a kitchen. The vast majority of ceiling cooker hoods are ducted externally, as this is the best option for them. 

What is the Difference Between a Ceiling and a Downdraft Cooker Hood?

A downdraft cooker hood sits flush with the kitchen countertop and behind your hobs. It emerges out of the surface, extracting the air over the hob.

A ceiling cooker hood is quite different from this. A ceiling cooker hood sits flush with, you guessed it, your ceiling.  

The 5 Benefits of Ceiling Cooker Hoods

Island Compatible

With over 40 years in the trade, one of the most asked questions we get about cooker hoods is from those who have an island in their kitchen. Having an island is a stylish and practical addition to a kitchen. But, it can create a need for new appliances that are better suited to the island unit.

A ceiling cooker hood is fully island-compatible and is the preferred choice for those who have an island unit. These hoods of course fit flush with the ceiling and do not need a wall in order to be fitted. A traditional chimney extractor hood or an integrated cooker hood is not a suitable choice as they do require a wall unit in order to be installed. 

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

People opt for ceiling cooker hoods because they are fitted flush with the ceiling. A traditional cooker hood will not fit as such, making ceiling hoods the ideal solution. 

Having a flush cooker hood enables you to maintain the design of your kitchen. The flow of the design is important to creating the right look in your home, and you don’t want a cooker hood to disrupt that. A traditional cooker hood can look rather bulky and usually sits in your eye-line. A ceiling cooker hood will be out of sight, working away to ventilate your kitchen. A ceiling cooker hood will ventilate without disrupting the design of your home, making it an ideal choice for the modern kitchen. 

Fitting In Between Joists 

A ceiling hood that can fit between joists does not alter the line of your ceiling at all, as seen in our diagram above. 

If you have joists already fitted in your ceiling, trying to install another type of cooker hood is a tough job. A bulkhead will need to be built, in order to accommodate the hood. The revolutionary design of the ceiling cooker hood means it can comfortably fit between joists, with the assistance of a bulkhead. However, some models such as the Aria can even fit between existing joists.

This is why most people opt for a ceiling cooker hood. Because, in some way, you will be able to make it work in between your joists in the kitchen.

Whisper Quiet

Another advantage to having a ceiling cooker hood is the reduced noise level. The ceiling cooker hood is enclosed within the ceiling or boxing; thus, the noise is greatly reduced. Some models even allow for the motor to be situated further away from the hood, eliminating the noise altogether. These are better known as inline motor hood, designed specifically for ceilings. 

This makes a ceiling cooker hood a popular choice amongst homeowners. For some, cooking is a way to relax, and a creative outlet. Therefore, you don’t want a noisy cooker hood stifling this. 

They are Visually Stunning 

Another benefit to choosing a ceiling cooker hood is that they truly are the epitome of a modern appliance. Sleek, and designed with modern techniques, these hoods are a stylish way to get better ventilation for your kitchen. These hoods are attractive appliances that aren’t there just for practicality’s sake. Instead, the many design choices make them a sought-after appliance in modern kitchens.

When we get asked… which ceiling cooker hoods are the best? Our team says that the Aria, Eclipse and Franke Maris ceiling cooker hoods are very visually appealing, coming in a wide range of colours and styles.
