4 Benefits Of A Copper Range Hood for Your Kitchen

Copper Range Hood for your kitchen


When was the last time you really looked at your range hood?

Most of us don’t give it much thought at all. We turn the range hood on when we have to, and turn it off if it’s too loud. Well, I’m here to tell you that the range hood is one of the most important components of any kitchen, to keep smoke and heat out of the kitchen.

The whole point of this often ignored appliance is to draw up all the smoke, grease, odor, and fumes that cooking produces and exhaust them out of our homes safely to the great outdoors. But, it’s not just cooking that sends potentially toxic pollutants into the air. Other appliances, like the stove, refrigerator, and microwave, are culprits, too.

So, everyone should have a range hood to help keep indoor air as pure as possible. Beyond that necessity, did you know that a range hood can be a focal point in your kitchen?

It can actually be an art piece that communicates your unique style and personality.

Copper range hoods, sometimes called a stove hood,  are especially beautiful and suited to even the most hardworking kitchen.



1. Think durability of your range hood


Copper is a super strong metal. It resists stains, dents, and scratches. Despite its strength, it’s very malleable. You can really let your inner artist out when designing this piece. Copper can be shaped, cut, and adorned in any way you’d like.

Hopefully, nothing will ever happen to your range hood, but if something like a fire or flood does damage it, all is not lost. Copper can usually be refinished to its original beauty.

Did you know that copper heals itself? It’s true. If you scratch a copper range hood, that scratch will gradually darken in color until it matches the rest of the hood.



2. Cleaning your Copper Range Hood


One of the best things about copper is how easy it is to clean. All you need to do is wipe it with a cloth dampened with plain water. If you’d like, you can add a few drops of white vinegar or lemon juice to about a half cup of water. Wipe clean then dry well.

Here’s another amazing fact about copper. It’s naturally anti-bacterial! Because it’s smooth, there are no nooks and crannies for germs to dig in and multiply.



3. The Beauty of Copper


There seems to be a magical gleam inherent to copper. It’s what gives it shine and an incredible depth of color. It’s as if Mother Nature gave it the gift of everlasting beauty.

Whether the range hood is a burnished orange color or a bright patina, copper adds special warmth to the kitchen that other materials just can’t.

Copper can be molded to any size and shape. You’re limited only by your imagination. Choose the look that suits your style and kitchen design best. The beauty of copper is that its color and texture can be fully customized.

Don’t worry about mixing styles. Copper looks great when set against other natural materials, like wood, stainless steel, and stone. You could place an antiqued copper island range hood in a modern open concept kitchen.

Add copper filigree accents or straps and rivets to add visual interest. There are so many possibilities.

Over time, copper does develop a patina. Some homeowners love that look and enjoy watching their range hoods change as the years pass. If you’d prefer that your range hood retain its original copper color, you can ask the manufacturer to apply a protective coating to it.

Range hoods come in many shapes, sizes, and styles. You can buy a hood that is mounted to the wall, hangs suspended over an island, or mounts underneath cabinetry. Any of these can be made from copper.

Have you noticed how many modern homes now feature ceilings that are a minimum of 9 feet high?

Extra tall ceilings require range hoods equipped with extra long chimneys. No problem. In fact, modern home design offers homeowners lots of opportunities to express their own sense of style.

Choose a copper hood with a stainless steel chimney, or vice versa. How about a copper and glass hood with an extra tall copper chimney? Sit down with an interior designer to discuss all the available options before finalizing your decision.

You can be sure that few, if any, of your friends, family, or neighbors have such a spectacular range hood. So, if you’re interested in owning a unique piece of art, go for copper. The design and style options that it offer are limitless. So, think carefully about the statement you’d like to make, and how a copper range hood can best represent your sense of style.



4. What’s the Cost of Copper?


If you’re thinking that a copper range hood will blow the budget, it probably won’t. Yes, copper is more expensive than stainless steel or the more common aluminum. Remember that the extra money that you put into it will come back to you.

A copper range hood can increase the resale value of your home. Copper is so durable that you won’t ever need to replace it. And the best reason to opt for copper? It’s just gorgeous, and you’ll absolutely love spending time in your kitchen!

    Polluted air poses a high risk of developing respiratory disorders and can be potentially harmful to people already suffering from respiratory problems. But you’ll be glad you have an option of personal air purifier hanging around your neck, kept by your side, perched on your desk at work, or by your bed at night. They’re great for taking along with you while traveling as well.
