Range hood mounting height
Please indulge another post on hood mounting height.
In our remodel we're using a 30" wide GE Profile induction cook top with a 36" wide X 24" deep wall mounted hood with either a 340 cfm or 420cfm fan (depending on the duct size). Every recommendation I've seen says to mount the hood 30-36" over the cook top (no GE recommendations specific to the cook top). This range is fine, but I'm trying to narrow things down a bit.
By the way, I'm really looking for answers from folks who actually have and use similar layouts.
I'm 6' tall and my wife is 5'4" tall. I find that, while standing at the cook top, my eye level is between 5'7" and 5'8" and the front of my head is about 30" from the wall.
After reading a lot online, one main concern seems to be hitting one's head on the hood if it is mounted too low. Does anybody out there about 6' tall with a 24" deep hood have any personal experience with this? If so, how high would you mount your hood?
A last consideration: What are the aesthetics regarding the hood liner being visible? I realize most folks under 6' tall will see the liner all the time, so this may not even be a factor worth considering. Do any of you folks less than 5'7" tall have anything to say about this?
