With the availability of different types of kitchen chimneys in the market, people often get confused on what chimney they should buy.   Follow the following basic tips to the pick the right chimney for your kitchen: 

1. Chimney mounting style: You can choose from different chimney mounting styles depending on the space available in your kitchen. Three common types of chimney mounting style are – wall-mounted, island, and built-in. As the name suggests, wall-mounted chimneys are fitted to the wall. If your cooking hob is placed against a wall, you should go for wall-mounted chimneys. While on the other hand, island chimneys are ideal for kitchens where a cooking stove is placed in the middle of the kitchen. Ideal for a smaller kitchen, built-in chimneys are compact and fixed on the wall. These chimneys are usually integrated within the overhead cabinet, saving the extra space in the kitchen.

2. Suction power: This refers to the ability of the chimney to extract smoke and odour. The suction capacity of your chimney should depend upon your type of cooking. If you are someone who loves to cook Indian dal, curries or deep fried foods, buy a chimney with high suction power.
