Ceiling vent in the kitchen??
We're planning a remodel and we'll be opening up the kitchen to the den and creating a peninsula. I know I'll get some flak about this, but we'll have the range on the peninsula.
Because the kitchen is small, I think a hood would be too much and would make the kitchen look crowded. I saw a great idea in a magazine where the architect connected a ceiling vent to a remote fan on an exterior wall. Then he used a vintage-look grate to cover it.
It looked great, but is this a viable solution to not using a cooktop hood? What do you think?
