Bring Your Kitchen Together With a Custom Range Hood
Having the right kind of traditional range hood is important if you want your kitchen to have a cohesive appearance. At CopperSmith, we offer a variety of traditional-style range hoods and luxury range hoods that come in several materials: Copper, mill finish, and steel. Each product we offer has been selected for its sophisticated appeal, as well as its functionality and durability. We encourage you to look through our options and then purchase the one that’s best suited for your rustic, traditional, contemporary, or vintage kitchen.
How to Choose the Right Style of Custom Stove Hood
If you are choosing a traditional or decorative range hood for yourself or a client, the choices can seem a bit overwhelming. The good news is that there are several ways for you to determine which type of traditional range hood will be the most appealing.
The first way to determine the right range hood style is by measuring the space in which the traditional kitchen range hood will go. Most traditional range hoods will have a width of 30”, 33”, 36”, 42”, or 48”. However, it is important to note that at CopperSmith, we do carry some traditional style range hoods that can be customized depending upon your needs. Simply call us at 1-952-800-7743 to get more information.
Another way to pick out the most appropriate traditional range hood for you or someone else is to look at the material used. Steel, mill finish, and copper all offer differing appearances. For instance, copper has a very timeless feel, whereas steel tends to have a very modern, streamlined aesthetic. The mill finish traditional range hood can be used with several architectural styles, including old-world and contemporary.
A range hood's finish should coordinate with your kitchen's design for the most cohesive appearance. Our brass and copper finishes offer a rustic feel for traditional or classic homes, while our stainless and black finish options create a modern feel. With CopperSmith, you can mix and match finishes for different parts of your range hood. Choose one finish for the main body and either match or complement the choice on the crown, straps, rivets, and pot rail.
The final consideration to make is the CFM needed for the kitchen cooking space. CFM stands for cubic feet per minute, which is the power of the movement of the air. You want a CFM that will be strong enough to remove any heat, air, and odors, but that is not too much for the size of your food preparation area.
Our team can help you determine the ideal CFM. Just call us at 1-952-800-7743 if you are not sure which CFM rate is best for your needs. In the end, the overarching goal of any traditional range hood should be two-fold: 1) It should look fantastic, and 2) It should work as expected.

Range Hoods for All Settings
CopperSmith has a range hood option for any kitchen or stovetop, so choose the option that best suits your needs.
Wall Mount Range Hoods
The wall mount is one of the most popular traditional range hoods. These hoods install onto the wall two feet or more above the stove. A wall mount hood will be a prominent kitchen feature, so customize yours to complement the decor.
Island Mount Range Hoods
Island mount range hoods are for kitchens with the oven built into an island counter. An island mount will hang from the ceiling above the stovetop. Due to its position in the middle of the kitchen, most island mounts require more powerful insert fans.
Under-Cabinet Range Hoods
Under-cabinet range hoods rest on the underside of a cabinet situated above the stovetop. The under-cabinet design uses space efficiently for plenty of room above the stove and, in most cases, full access you the cabinet's interior.
Outdoor Range Hoods
Air quality is still a top priority when cooking in covered outdoor settings. Outdoor range hoods install higher than other types to maximize airflow and control smoke from grilling and more. You'll find outdoor range hoods in all of our styles.

What happens if you don't have a range hood?
Without a functional range hood venting or filtering your kitchen air, harmful airborne irritants will accumulate in your home. It will increase unwanted smells, lead to more grime and grease buildup, and cause/worsen pulmonary issues, like asthma.
Stovetops release gases, like carbon monoxide and formaldehyde, which can even be fatal in large doses. For your health and the health of everyone in your home, a functional vent hood is a necessity.
What type of range hood is best?
The best type of range hood is the one suited to you!
Your range hood should always be installed directly over your cooktop (ie. an island cooktop will get island hoods).
The next step is determining the CFM you'll require. There's no universal answer, but for the average performance kitchen, you'll need around 600 CFM. Barely cook? 300 CFM should be fine. Stir-frying every day? You may need a 1200 CFM fan insert.
Once you've answered the technical questions, you can fully customize your range hood to work in symphony with the rest of your kitchen design.
Does a range hood need to be vented outside?
A range hood can be vented (ie. ducted) to the outdoors, or it can be ductless. A ductless hood doesn't vent the air outside but instead purifies and recycles the air through a heavy-duty charcoal filter.
How much should I spend on a range hood?
The base cost for one of our range hoods spans from $3,200 to $4,500, depending on the range hood style. With customizations, these base prices can change a great deal. If your custom hood needs to accommodate a large stovetop, or if you choose more valuable metal types, the price will increase.
Your CopperSmith product will be among the best range hoods available. It's an investment, but the effect on the quality of your air and the value it adds to your home over time will be well worth it.
If your stove isn't large, however, and your customizations aren't the pricier options, your range hood may end up being lower than the listed base price. So the answer to this question is highly individual! Use our easy customization tool to get a quote.
Can I install a range hood myself?
You may be handy, but range hood installation should always be handled by an HVAC and electrical professional. Due to the importance of proper ducting and hardwiring, and the dangers associated, you should not install a range hood unless you have the appropriate training.
How much does it cost to install a range hood?
Range hood installation services usually cost between $200 and $600, depending on your location and the nature of your installation.
Naturally, it will cost more to install a ducted hood with extensive ductwork, while ductless hoods will require less involved installation.
How high should a hood be above a stove?
Most traditional range hoods are installed 20"-24" above your cooktop, though the hood height can increase for a larger stove.
Ask our live customer assistance if you're unsure of how the dimensions of your kitchen will affect your range hood.
Are ductless range hoods worth it?
Choosing a ducted or ductless range hood is largely a matter of personal preference. Installing ducting can cost more initially, but ductless hoods will require you to change the charcoal filters more often. The placement of your hood and its proximity to the outdoors can be another factor. Go ahead and ask us if you want our opinion on which option could be right for you.
Do ductless range hoods plug in?
Our ductless hood blower inserts are hardwired, meaning that once installed by an electrician, you don't need to worry about plugs.
Should I vent my range hood through the roof?
Ducted range hoods must always vent outside, either through an exterior wall or your roof.
Under no circumstances can a range vent into a crawlspace or attic, as the gas buildup is extremely dangerous.
Do you need a range hood for an induction cooktop?
While induction cooktops themselves do not release harmful gas, the food and oil you're cooking still will. You may determine that your fan insert needs a lower CFM, but induction cooktops should still have a vent hood overhead.
How do I choose a quiet range hood?
It's simple, the lower the CFM, the quieter the hood. Your fan insert will come with variable speeds, so your hood's volume can be adjusted depending on the needs of the moment.
How do I know what size range hood I need?
Your range hood should be slightly larger, never smaller, than your stovetop.
Do downdraft vents work?
Downdraft vents work by pulling polluted kitchen air down from your cooktop, instead of catching it as it rises. Because of this, they're less effective than overhead, standard vents.
How much does it cost to replace a kitchen exhaust fan?
While the cost of the fan itselfvaries, all CopperSmith fan inserts (ducted and ductless) are easy (and free) to install.
