Top Tips on Designer Interiors
Downdraft Extractors & Kitchen Hobs
Frequently-sought-after functions in newly designed Kube Kitchens today are cooking areas in an island kitchen. Not every home can take a kitchen island with counter space allocated to a 6 ring hob, but if you are blessed with open interior spaces, the island layout is very effective. Consider an island kitchen which faces out onto your open plan dining and living interior spaces. You, as an enthusiastic cook or professional chef, can face your family or guests while preparing delicious meals.
Considering Downdraft Extraction Systems
When you design kitchen hobs in island kitchens, you now have to consider downdraft extraction systems. There are many fabulous ceiling-mounted downdraft extractors available on the market today. Downdraft extractors can be a real statement of a designer piece in your kitchen island.
An alternative to the traditional island extractor is to consider downdraft extraction systems. Downdraft extraction was historically very expensive and only available from exclusive brand manufacturers at prices exceeding €3,000 to €4,000. Kube Kitchens has sourced two downdraft products in the last 18 months which have become very popular with our Irish customers. Downdraft extractor prices start at around €1,400 with the external motors starting at €499.
Benefits of Downdraft Extraction
The benefits of downdraft extraction over conventional extraction are simple, but very effective. The motor on a downdraft extractor is placed outside on your external kitchen wall, so all noise generated is kept far away from your tranquil cooking area. More importantly, the extractor fan can be tucked away in the surface of your kitchen island, when not in use. Downdraft extractors touch control raises the extractor fan into position when your culinary activities begin. Go on and impress your friends at your next dinner party with your state-of-the-art downdraft extractor – be a little different.
