ooking technologies are advancing at a rapid rate, with competition being

higher than ever. We saw some interesting trends in 2019, with

a high demand for black glass wall hoods and discreet stainless-steel, integrated hoods. Industrial finishes are still very popular, with bronze and copper being particularly popular. More customers want quiet but powerful hoods that are highly energy-efficient and have good quality LED lighting, as well as additional special features such as touch control. Venting hobs are still relatively new to the market and are still unknown to many consumers. With venting hobs as the biggest growing sector, many retailers should look at installing a live venting hob in their showroom to make it easier to display how they work.I would advise retailers and kitchen designers to

make sure they pay attention to the extraction rate rather than purely the price. There are more and more open plan kitchen designs, meaning hoods need to be efficient enough for the size of the kitchen. Taking this into consideration could avoid any unhappy customers at a later date due to moisture which can occur as the result of an insufficiently powerful extractor.Ducting your cooker hood may not be an option for much longer - particularly with new build regulations. To prepare, designers should begin to learn about Plasma filters. These revolutionary filters mean you can extract more efficiently than a ducted cooker hood by recirculating clean, filtered air back into the kitchen instead of polluting the air outside. Plasma filters are incredibly popular in other European countries and I expect they will be the next big thing in the UK.
