At Westin we’re aware that no two kitchens are the same and so we offer the Westin Bespoke design and finish service so that you can complete your perfect kitchen with your perfect hood.
Whether you require a custom design of hood, a specialised finish, a more powerful performance or just something a little bit different — then Westin Bespoke offers you the opportunity to design a cooker hood to your exact requirements.
You can tweak one of our hoods, perhaps by changing the finish or the lights, or go completely bespoke with a uniquely designed solution. Some variation in your choices may be necessary depending on the dimensions of the hood but we can advise on the best way of achieving your goals.
1. style of hood
A professional range cooker option designed with curved front edge detail.
A curved, bell shape body with metal band detail designed to perform over a powerful range cooker.
A curved hood with metal band detail
A professional range cooker option designed with straight front edge detail.
A sleek modern style which can be painted to match the kitchen cabinets
A cladded hood, usually in mirror or glass, designed for optimum performance
A sleek professional range cooker option designed with no front edge detail.
An angled hood with a chimney section for more traditional kitchens.
The baseplate is the underside of the hood that houses the filters. Choose a traditional honeycomb or mesh design, or perhaps a more industrial-looking stainless steel baffle. You can also conceal the filters completely with a panel of any finish.
You can choose the shape, style and number of the lights on the hood; choose from square, spotlights, strip lights, light bars or a light box. They can be painted or you can choose to have no lights at all. The hood can incorporate your own lights to ensure a match with the other lights in the kitchen. The lights can either be controlled from the hood, the Westin Remote or integrated to operate alongside other room lights.
4. the finishing touch
We offer a wide range of finishes for your hood. As well as brushed or polished stainless steel, hoods can be painted, clad or coated. You might want your hood to blend into your kitchen or make it a real focal point.
Cooker hoods can be painted to match any RAL colour or matched to a provided colour swatch. A painted finish can be in matt, satin or gloss.
LIQUID METAL COATINGS
Liquid metal is an innovative technique which gives a unique finish. The finish shares the same characteristics as real metal in lustre and feel. It will age and patinate in the same way as metal and can be applied to any liquid metal texture. As well as the Westin liquid metal offering listed below, customers have the option of sending their own metal sample to us for matching.
BRASS – Antique, polished or brushed
BRONZE – Antique, polished or brushed
COPPER – Antique, polished or brushed
PEWTER – Antique, polished or brushed
5. Power and performance
The effectiveness of a cooker hood depends on the style, the motor, the size of duct, the length of the duct run and the number of bends it has. For serious cooks it is important that the performance isn’t compromised so more powerful motors, or a combination of motors can be used to achieve the desired extraction in the kitchen.
Our standard motors work perfectly with our product range but more motor options are available. For example, it is also possible to use a combination of motors to achieve higher performance regardless of the length or complicated nature of the duct run, or the power of the cooker or hob.
Why use a remote motor rather than an internal motor?
Westin 360 technology provides an improved solution to conventional recirculation when it isn’t possible to duct out. The technology is a proven air purification system which is used to clean air in hospitals and space stations. Westin 360 technology works by mimicking the natural process that scrubs the air clean and offers an effective, low maintenance recirculation option. You may wish to remove the noise from the cooker hood and the kitchen.
