Faber Cristal HC Slide Out hood in Designer Kitchen

This weeks designer spotlight features Kevin Karst Design from Toronto in this stunning kitchen featuring the Cristal HC Slide Out hood by Faber.

Cristal HC by Faber in a Design by Kevin Karst

 This kitchen features high end stainless appliances and a Faber Cristal HC with an aluminum front installed. The designer comments on why he chose this hood by Faber:

“This hood subdued appearance preserves clean simple contemporary cabinet lines without compromising functionality.  I didn’t want the hood to visually compete with the beautiful fiddle-back figure of the English Figured Sycamore cabinet fronts.  I like the idea that it leaps into life only when needed.” - Kevin Karst

We couldn't have said it better! The Cristal HC is meant to integrate into your design and not become the focal point in the kitchen. When you are ready to cook simply pull the visor on the Cristal to reveal a second set of grease filters for a total of 4 filters and 19" of front to back coverage over the cooking surface. If the on/off switches on the lighting and motor are switched to "ON", then once the slider is pulled the range hood turns on and the lights come on. When you are finished cooking, simply slide the visor back in to shut the hood off. 

The beauty of the Cristal HC is how versatile the product is. In the box comes a black, white and brushed aluminum (as seen in the photo above) front strip. The hood can also accept a wood cabinet front so the hood can completely integrate into the kitchen design. With top or direct rear venting, 500 cfm motor and dishwasher safe grease filters, this slide out has the right features for your kitchen.
