The installation height of a kitchen hood: we solve the doubts

Although many factors may adjust to your particular preferences in the design of today's kitchens, some elements - a tiny number but extremely important- are at the mercy of the rigidity of a tape measure. One of these considerations is the location and height of the campaign in your kitchen. And it is almost totally dependent on the kind of plate used and the space that is maintained between the two appliances.


At what height is the kitchen hood placed?


In an ideal world, we would be able to provide you with a particular figure, but as is so frequently the case in the world of home appliances, this is just not feasible. The first and most crucial information to remember is that the height is controlled by the kind of plate and the type of hood used, so be sure to carefully study the directions for the latter to ensure that you do not overlook anything. You will find the whole list of technical requirements on that page.

However, to ensure that you do not depart empty-handed, we can check a set of height measures that are more or less standardized. Because of these, you will better understand the precise moment you should show off your hood. Let's look at a few examples:

  • If you have chosen the romanticism of a gas plate, you should keep the ornamental bells 55 cm away from the induction plates and 65 cm away from the gas plates.
  • The integration modules, which are designed to be as unnoticeable as possible, should be placed at very least- 65 cm away from any form of the plate on their own.
  • Furthermore, telescoping hoods, which are still extensively used today and are still a popular choice for many, must be installed at least 43 cm away from induction or ceramic cooktop.


And the height for a ceiling fan?


Taking the statistics with a grain of salt, since there are always exceptions, we may deduce that the most typical height for ceramic and induction hobs is between 45 and 65 cm, which is also the recommended minimum distance between gas and ceramic hobs (see table). However, at Siemens, we also have the distinction given by ceiling extractor fans, which must be installed with a minimum distance of 120 cm between them and any other plate in the ceiling.
