Measuring Your Kitchen Range Hood
We already have a post solely dedicated to giving your the ins-and-outs on how to measure your curved range hood. For simplicity, I'll quickly explain each of them here, but once your ready to order, it couldn't hurt to go ahead and read through that post. The key measurements are the depth, width, face height, and total height. The depth is the distance your kitchen range hood extends from your wall. The width is how wide your range hood will be at the bottom. The face height, is the height of the front lip, the flat surface that is usually decoratively trimmed out. Lastly, the total height, yep you got it, is the total height from bottom to top of your range hood.
Something you should keep in mind is that your vent liner will often dictate or put limitations around your measurements. Most of our customers find that it's easier to pick out the vent liner first, give us the brand and model, and then provide us with the measurements. In doing this, we make sure the vent liner will fit the range hood. However, there are those who choose to build there range hood first and then shop for a vent liner later. In any case, here's the skinny on how we build your custom range hood around your vent liner. This will help in determining your measurements if you've picked out your vent liner first, but you can also work backwards and this will give you the maximum measurements for your vent liner. One last thing regarding vent liners. We're often asked what vent liners are most popular. Here's the three vent liners we see our customer use frequently: Zephyr, Broan, and Vent A Hood.
