Copper Kitchen Hood for High Ceiling

Most copper hoods under mycustommade brand can be fabricated for a high ceiling kitchen. Some vent hoods are more adaptable than others. It depends largely on their style and in particular shape. The best example of the hood that can be extended upwards is our Blainville model. It looks like any other vintage appliance but in addition it has a small chimney incorporated to the design.

How to Modify Hood Height

There are two ways to have it made tall or smaller. Either we add some extra height to the chimney or work on the shape. Do it the way it still preserves the style shown on the detail product page photo even though the dimensions are changed. In case of this item the obvious answer is to go with the first option. It will be much easier to customize the hood and at the same time keep the rest of the product unchanged.

There are two way of installing copper vent hoods in a high kitchen providing it is a wall mount type. Since the extension is an integral part of the structure, you can hang the hood by attaching it to the joists or screwing to the studs. In case of island version there is only one option available. That is to have it suspended from the ceiling. I saw some hacienda hoods that were hanged on copper chains. Obviously, you can modify their length according to your room height and your personal preferences.
