What types are available in the market?
1. Wall Mounted Chimney
Fixed above the stove onto the wall, these chimneys add a modern touch to your kitchen. These chimneys are budget-friendly and best suited for smoke and spice intensive Indian cooking.
2. Island Chimney
Just as the name suggests, the stove stands away from the walls, and hence, the chimney is above the stove in an island fashion. These chimneys are best for a U-shaped or open kitchen layout.
3. Built-in Chimney
With a seamless look, these chimneys come in box shapes. The parts fit inside the kitchen cabinet, making the chimney almost invisible. This decorative chimney radically reduces smoke and fumes while producing less noise when in operation.
4. Straight Line Chimney
This type of chimney is best suited for small-sized kitchens. It is designed in a way that it extends only halfway over the stove.
5. Corner-type Chimney
Compact and well-adapting to small spaces, corner-type chimneys are located just above a stove placed in the corner of a kitchen. These chimneys add a natural look to the corner space.
6. Curved Glass Chimney
These chimneys come with push buttons, allowing easy access to features. These are decorative chimneys which add a design-savvy look to your modern modular kitchen.
