How to vent a range in front of a window? Going from a 44 inch cut out to a 30 inch range? Help!
February 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I've entered the planning stages of the inevitable kitchen remodel. So... aside from the obviously ugly poor decision of the last owners to apply plaid wallpaper to the cabinet facing, the solid wood original cabinets are still in play, properly function, and are wonderfully solid. Those stay and in their original layout. They will be refinished and get new counter tops. EVERYthing else changes. I cook a lot. And, many of my choices will revolve around the range. Currently, I have a consignment 36" restaurant grade Garland range that I've been cooking on for about a year. Too big, too impractical, too non functioning. And heats up the kitchen like an inferno. Looks cool. That's all. It's gotta go. Going in with new appliances and need a clever way to vent the range. Note: it sits in front of a window, the ceilings are 11 ft high, and the original cabinetry spans the top of the window opening. Any suggestions?
