40" hood over 36" rangetop
I got lots of great help here when I was working on my kitchen layout/design. Now it's time to pick out the range hood. We've ordered a 36" 6 burner Wolfe rangetop. I was originally planning on a custom built hood, but am now leaning towards a stainless steel chimney style. I know that a 42" hood would provide the recommended 3" overhang on each side, but I found a good deal on a 40" Rangecraft and am wondering if 1" less on each side would make a big difference--both aesthetically and function-wise. Here's a picture of the wall the range will sit on. The cupboards to the right are open, and there will be subway tile to the ceiling. As much as I'd love to be able to save the money, I don't want to make a big compromise and regret it later. Thanks!
