Recs for range hoods/vents with upsidedown T shape
Hi! Sorry if this is posted twice. I thought I posted it on Sunday but can't find it so I might have only hit Preview, not Submit.
We will likely have a 6 burner gas stovetop, likely Wolf. It will be on an inside wall that is perpendicular to the outside wall. One of the potential contractors said we might need a soffit to get it to vent to the outside. I read the other recent post that seemed to say they had to open up the ceiling to tell if they could vent it through the ceiling vs. the soffit.
Since it will be a large kitchen with white Shaker cabinets, I was hoping the range hood could be a focal point for the wall and would break up all the white. Do people have any specific recs on vents that would fit this situation? I'd also like it to have whatever other features are necessary, e.g., make up air?, low noise. It doesn't have to be the absolute best but should function well. We will probably seldom use all six burners. That said, when I do cook in our current home with our vent that just recycles air, we sometimes set off the fire alarm :( I scanned the Houzz article on what to look for in a vent, but hoping you'll take that into consideration when giving your recs. I'd like something sleek and sexy :)
Lastly, I was wondering if you felt that the vents with some glass got dirty quickly and were hard to maintain. Similarly, if I have glass on the cabinets on the sides of the vent, instead of opaque solid doors, would those have to be cleaned frequently?
We haven't decided on the backsplash but were considering carrera marble subway tile, or again some sort of statement with calcutta gold marble. More on that in another post.
Thank you very much!
