Replace Light Box with Island Hood or Keep Downdraft?
Please help me decide if this custom cabinet clad fluorescent light box (1990) should be replaced by an island hood (36-42") or if it would look better to keep the downdraft ventilation in the island. The cook top will be replaced regardless. The kitchen has lots of light, 10 cans as well as the florescent, and a fixture over the breakfast area. Counters are plastic laminate and will be replaced later, but the island could be done now. Appliances will be stainless.
