Hood 36" over 30" range ? Help pls quickly :)
Should the hood width match the range width? Does anyone have a 36" hood over a 30" range? Does this, or would this, look odd or off balance?
Cabinets ordered with a 30" space for hood and range - but the order is not yet in production and I could adjust the order if needed. I also could adjust for adding more inches to the kitchen if needed.
Along the way a KD commented that the hood should be wider to protect the cabinet - otherwise steam will go up the sides. However, in reading GD WEB posts I read that this has more to do with the shape and depth of the hood - and, if sized appropriately (and not a flat hood) then there was not a need to go beyond the range width.
So - comments please! I need to make any adjustments to the cabinet order quickly.
Does anyone have the 36-30 set up?
Has anyone had problems with steam ruining sides of cabinets where the hood is the same width as the range?
If I change the hood to 36" should I change the range to a 36".
