Range Hood FAQ - Custom Range Hoods & Inserts
A beautiful range hood is the centerpiece of the kitchen. It instantly defines the cooking area as the center of activity. The range hood can bring together the colors and designs of the countertop, cabinetry, backsplash, and wall coverings. There are many types of range hoods, made from a variety of materials and with a dazzling array of shapes & designs. Contemporary, modern, traditional - there's a range hood to fit almost any kind of kitchen design and cooking equipment.
Custom range hoods can truly showcase the unique taste of the homeowner, and become the crowning glory of a kitchen remodel. Hammered copper, plaster or stone, wood and other natural materials - the possibilities are limited only by the imagination (and budget, of course!).
The range hood insert (sometimes called a "power pack") is the heart of a custom range hood. This is a manufactured, "off-the-shelf" range hood without the finished outer shell, that's designed to be built into a cabinet or a custom hood enclosure. With a range hood insert, there's no need to mess around with separate blower motors, filters, lights, electronics, controls, and wiring - it's already set up & ready to go!
Futuro Futuro offers a selection of range hood products to fit a variety of hood/cabinet sizes. All of our customizable range hoods are equipped with powerful yet whisper-quiet blowers (from 800 to 1800 CFM), electronic controls, dishwasher-safe filters, and eco-friendly lighting systems.

Shade Range Hoods
The "Shade" series range hoods are designed for "invisible" installation into standard kitchen cabinets, and feature a retractable tempered-glass panel that protects the cabinet edge from damage due to heat, moisture, and grease.
All Futuro Futuro Shade series range hoods are equipped with a 4-speed 940-CFM blower, halogen or LED lights, and dishwasher-safe mesh filters.
The Shade range hood is attached to the cabinet itself, not to the wall - giving the designer and builder more freedom with cabinet layout.
Skylight Range Hoods
The "Skylight" series range hoods provide whole-room ventilation, and can be built directly into the ceiling, or a soffit below the ceiling.
This is the perfect solution for contemporary kitchen designs with a minimal look - the range hood blends in seamlessly with the lighting, unobtrusively waiting to be called upon to extract 100's of cubic feet of polluted air.
With a modular design that separates the hood body from the blower box, the "Skylight" ceiling range hood offers a variety of installation options, making it an attractive choice for many kitchen environments where unusual ceiling configurations, space constraints, or a need to keep the visuals clean and uncluttered, precludes the use of a traditional "chimney style" range hood.
