Designer island cooker hoods: A centre-piece of the kitchen


At Kitchen Design Centre, we’re all about creating kitchens that make a statement. Our kitchens are a departure from standard fitted kitchens, bringing new styles, layouts, textures and tones to our customers’ homes – and always to stunning effect.

This week on the blog, we’re taking a look at designer island cooker hoods – a bold choice of extractor hood that can really bring a unique touch to a room.

Neutralising smells, minimising cleaning

A cooker hood is an important part of any kitchen: positioned directly over the hob, they help to reduce cooking smells, heat and condensation by sucking them out of the room. An efficient cooker hood can also trap grease and prevent it from being deposited all over your kitchen. Cooker hoods should be carefully chosen to ensure maximum efficiency.

If, like many of our customers, you opt for an island or peninsula layout in your kitchen, designer island cooker hoods are an ideal choice. We have a wide range of cooker hoods for you to choose from, and our staff can talk you through finding the right one for your designer kitchen.

Designer island cooker hoods give maximum visual impact

When it comes to creating a designer kitchen with the “wow factor”, a beautiful island cooker hood is a good place to start. They can be a stunning visual statement, drawing the eye to the centre of the room and helping to fill a space that, in many kitchens, remains empty and unused.

And while some customers worry that a ceiling-mounted cooker hood can be inefficient and overly noisy, or block out light, our designers take into account height, width, power and noise reduction to ensure that your hood looks great and performs just as well.

Improving air flow – and kitchen flow!

It’s not just the air flow in your kitchen that can be improved by the installation of designer island cooker hoods. Choosing to move your hob and extractor hood to the centre of the room allows you to move most of the action there too.

Cooking and preparing food on a central island or peninsula can be much more enjoyable than being tucked away in a corner with your back to the room, particularly if your kitchen includes an open-plan layout or a crafty seating area on the other side of the counter.

The Kitchen Design Centre Barrowford is a stunning showroom that occupies three shops on the high street - 4, 5, and 6 Gladstone Terrace.

Mr and Mrs Lowcock recently visited the showroom when they were considering a new kitchen for their busy family home. Mr Lowcock has fond memories of visiting his father’s plumbing shop in 4 Gladstone Terrace, which made the visit quite nostalgic!
The couple chose a Hacker Ravenna Pearl Grey kitchen with bespoke Artista Grey Corian worktops. The main focus of the design was to brighten up the space by using better lighting and natural colors. The addition of practical appliances, including a Quooker boiling tap, made it easy for the multi-generational family to use the kitchen.
