Suggestions for open kitchen?

Dear all,

Besides cleaning diligently every day (i salute all those who can achieve this), any suggestions on how to keep oil/grease/cooking fumes from escaping into the living room, in particular for open-kitchen concepts?

Also, anyone tried those glass casing around the cooking hood before? Found a number of sellers in Taobao customising this, for instance. https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm...u=t2dmg8j26111

many thanks in advance

Its all abt making sure the airflow is venting outwards. Most hoods recirculate within kitchen.

Thanks Shin. We thought of building glass doors/wall / sliding doors too, but the resale unit that we are looking at has long L-shape wall being hacked down. Adding the wall/glass or wooden door would mean the study room would need a door too, living room will feel significantly smaller..

Thanks yoongf, didnt know hoods recirculate within the kitchen. I always thought fumes go into the hood and tadah either disappears or become clean air...

Yes indeed. By adding a door the area would look smaller. Its unavoidable trade off

Else can u tahan your living room get oily?

*shy* we are still trying to find solutions to get the best of both worlds...i.e. not adding wall/doors while keeping living room free from oil/grease.

The Taobao glass casing around the hood caught our eye as a possible alternative. However given that Chinese hoods usually should have a vent that directs air out versus Singapore hoods re-circulating the air, im not sure if the glass casing is a matter of more frequent filters to change/clean (easy peasy) or it would damage the cooker hood. From taobao reviews appear rather decent when i scroll through different more reputable sellers.

Wonder anyone in singapore had tried this before with reviews..

😂😂😂
The kitchen has almost 40% of its original wall torn down.. i need an army of fans to blow air back to kitchen. Then again, kitchen has no windows unless i consider the service yard..
