Range hoods are essential to any kitchen because they remove cooking fumes and airborne particles. Those pollutants remaining in the kitchen would make the kitchen space a lot more uncomfortable to be in. But when choosing the best range hood for your kitchen especially when it comes to its looks, there are a ton of decision variables to consider. These include design and customization, the range hood finish, and its durability. Shifting through these decisions can be overwhelming for an average homeowner especially when bombarded with the options available.

A newer but unexplored range hood finish making a positive name for itself is the custom titanium finish. It is a range hood finish that offers durability mixed with a stunning look that makes it a good fit for most kitchen designs. To get a better understanding of this unique finish, we’ll explain all things titanium finish below. We will explore ten reasons why you should consider a custom range hood with a titanium finish for your kitchen space.

What Exactly Are Titanium-Coated Range Hoods?

Titanium-coated range hoods are custom-made range hoods that have passed through a specialized surface treatment process. This process applies several layers of micron-sized titanium to the surface of the range hood. The process happens repeatedly until it forms a coat over the base material (often stainless steel or other metals) of the range hood. The end result of this process is a hard, durable coating on the range hood surface that protects it from corrosion and dents. The application of this coating also comes with an anti-smudge feature that makes maintaining the range hood a lot easier.

There are several different forms of titanium coated range hoods and the notable ones are

  1. Wall-mounted titanium range hoods: These hoods are designed to be mounted on the wall above the cooking range. They come in various sizes and styles to fit different kitchen designs.
  2. Island titanium range hoods: Island range hoods are suspended from the ceiling and are designed to be used above cooking surfaces that are not against a wall. They are ideal for kitchen islands and open-concept kitchens.
  3. Under-cabinet titanium range hoods: These hoods are designed to fit underneath cabinets above the cooking range. They are a popular choice for kitchens with limited space.
  4. Custom-built titanium range hoods: Custom-built range hoods can be designed to fit any kitchen space and can be made in various shapes and sizes to match the kitchen style.
  5. Downdraft titanium range hoods: Downdraft hoods are installed directly into the cooking surface and draw smoke and steam into the range.

Types of Custom Titanium Range Hood Finish

Custom titanium coated range hoods are available in the following finish:

Brushed Titanium Finish

Brushed titanium finish is a popular option for custom titanium range hoods with a slightly matte texture. This is made on the coat by using a wire brush. This finish creates wavy parallel lines on the surface of the range hood. These lines help reduce the amount of light reflected by the vent hood surface. 

Polished Titanium Finish

Polished titanium finish is a highly reflective finish that is achieved by buffing the surface of the titanium coat with a polishing compound. This process creates a smooth, mirror-like finish. But this often allows the hood surface to show fingerprints and smudges more easily. This means you have to do a lot more cleaning to maintain its look.

Textured Titanium Finish

Textured titanium finish is another option for custom titanium range hoods. This textured finish is achieved by creating a pattern or design on the surface of the titanium. This is done using various techniques like etching or hammering. This finish adds a touch of personality and character to your kitchen. It’s popular for homeowners who want to make a statement with their range hood. The texture can also help to hide fingerprints and smudges. 

Colored Titanium Finish

Colored titanium finish is when the titanium coat is mixed with a layer of color. The color can range from subtle shades of blue or green to bold, vibrant hues like red or yellow. Colored titanium finishes can draw visual interest to any space in your kitchen where you place the range hood.

Satin Titanium Finish

Satin titanium finish uses sandblasting or chemical etching. This creates a matte, non-reflective surface with a brushed coat appearance. It can be redesigned by adding various colors and patterns and is less prone to showing fingerprints and smudges.

Titanium-coated range hoods are one of the best heat-resistant range hoods available. The titanium coat's low thermal expansion and heat conductivity make these perfect for kitchen use. This is especially true for kitchens with a gas stove or range and those with cooking and frying at high temperatures. The high melting points of titanium coats prevent cracks and creases.

More energy-efficient

Titanium-coated range hoods are more energy-efficient because they reduce the power needed to operate. This is because titanium coat is highly energy conductive. It can quickly transfer heat from the stove and cooking surface to the range hood.

Easy to clean and maintain

One of the primary benefits of titanium-coated range hoods is their non-stick surface. The titanium surface is highly resistant to scratches and stains which makes it a lot easier to clean. All you need is a damp cloth and a mild cleaning solution. You can use these to wipe down the surface of the range hood.

Titanium-coated range hoods are not noisy

Custom titanium-coated range hoods especially those made by Moderncopper, operate quietly. This quietness is highly attributed to their superior design and silent powerful fans. These fans move air efficiently and they also come with an exhaust vent with sound-absorbing materials. These further reduce the noise levels. This means that no matter how much air the hood is venting, it won't generate as much noise as other range hoods.

Titanium range hoods boost a home's value

A custom titanium range hood can add value to your home. Homes with high-end kitchen appliances and features are often more desirable to buyers. A custom titanium range hood can be a standout feature that sets your home apart from others on the market.

Health benefits

One key benefit is that your titanium-coated finish is very non-reactive. This means it won’t release harmful chemicals or particles into the air. This often happens with other coats when they are exposed to high temperatures or acidic substances.
