Range Hood: Height between the stove top and hood bottom
We are shopping for a range hood and pretty much have to let go of most of the models because of the height between the gas stove top and the bottom of the hood(assuming we buy a 6" ht under cabinet hood). We only have 23 inches(23-1/2 at most) and the specs for many range hoods require a minimum height which is more than this. For eg, Kobe hoods requires the min height from the stove top to the bottom of the hood to be 27" and the max height to be 30". Our gas range expects the min height to be 24". Is it acceptable to have +/- an inch or so if the range hood also say expects a min ht of 24"? Hubby is confident that it should be ok. Looks like the least intrusive option we have is to go back and buy the same brand range hood( a local brand) we currently have in SS. The other option is to remove the cabinet above and install a chimney type range hood but we would like to avoid the hassle of doing any more changes. Any feedback is welcome!
