12' ceiling, what to do about new vent chimney?
I think I'm close to having a design and choosing a contractor for my long overdue remodel - goodbye golden oak cabinets and forest green laminate counters! I'll be looking here for lots of help (and a little whine/wine now and then).
But my first question is...what am I going to do about my new hood vent chimney? The ceilings are 12', so cabinets will not be going all the way up. We currently have a recirculating microwave hood so there is just big blank wall above the cabinets. A designer has suggested a brick or stone chimney from the hood all the way up and I think I like that idea... but I'd sure love to see pictures! I haven't selected a hood and think I will be flexible - everything will look and function better than what I have now. Can anyone share pictures of vent chimneys, particularly those that extend above the level of the cabinets? My rangetop will be 36", hood likely to be the same (though I kinda know it is supposed to be wider).
