Decure Recommendation: Wherever possible prefer Ducted Chimney, as they circulate upto 30% more air as compared to a ductless chimney. Also, a ducted chimney will absorb steam and condensation better than its ductless counterpart.
Rule of Thumb: To calculate the appropriate suction capacity of your chimney, you multiply the volume of your kitchen by 10 If the your kitchen is 4 mt wide, 5 mt long and 2.7 mt high, then
(4 x 5 x 2.7) x 10 = 540 m3/hr- A chimney of 540 m3/hr or more should be good enough for your kitchen
Go for a chimney finish that best compliments the interiors of your kitchen. The use of glass definitely adds a touch of elegance to your kitchen
