Replacing An Old Range Hood

How to Replace an Old Range Hood With a New Copper Range Hood

Adding copper to your kitchen is an excellent way to create a luxurious, upscale look. From copper sinks to tables to lighting and other décor items, copper is a beautiful, natural element that can enhance the style of any kitchen. If you want the complete copper experience, consider replacing your old range hood with a new copper range hood from CopperSmith. We carry several different styles and models that add a traditional touch to your kitchen.

A copper range hood is bound to become the focal point of your kitchen. If you already have some copper touches or installations, consider choosing a similar patina for your range hood. While you can mix and match different coppers for a unique look, many of our customers prefer the clean and harmonious appeal of matched copper elements.

If you’re thinking of replacing your old range hood, here are important considerations:

  • Start by checking out our available copper range hood sizes and styles. We carry many popular sizes (such as 30”, 33”, 36”, 42” and 48”) and several models that can be adjusted for a custom size. Before you start pulling out your old range, it’s a good idea to be sure you can find one that will adapt to your space, especially if you’re looking to directly replace your current range hood with a copper one of the same size and shape.
  • If you’re redoing your kitchen walls, you can pick whatever size suits your kitchen and cooking space. Choosing a range hood depends on the amount of air you’re looking to draw. Measured in CFM (cubic feet per minute), a higher CFM number is necessary for larger kitchens and larger ranges. Our experts at CopperSmith can help you calculate the correct CFM for your kitchen, so you can choose the model that suits.
  • The nature of copper patina means that it will evolve over time, generally darkening and possibly taking on a variety of greenish tones. This change is the reason copper is such a prized material for indoor and outdoor use. Installing your copper range hood against a white or light background is one way to highlight the charm and warmth of copper. You may prefer a darker finish, such as slate, stone or charcoal colors to complement your copper range.

A little planning allows you to choose the right size, performance, and style of copper range for your kitchen, allowing for an easier installation and the most attractive finish for your kitchen.
