over the range shelf -- practical issues?
Hi all, I am thinking of doing a shelf over the range, or perhaps having a recessed niche in the wall behind the range. I was wondering for those that have this setup, how deep is your shelf? Does it get in the way of your taller pots? would it affect the performance of your hood? would it make your seasonings get damp or dry out, etc.? is cleaning a pain?
thanks for any advice!
Here are some pics of the range shelf I was thinking of:
