Questions about current vent hood for planning reno
We have a vent hood that the previous owner put in the house. It looks really nice, was pretty expensive, but I'm not sure if we should keep it.
1) It vents into the basement. I'm guessing that's not so good??? We live in a two story house with a basement and the hood/stove is on an inside wall, so I think it's impossible to vent outdoors. Is there a way to vent it outdoors that I'm not aware of? What do people do when the hood is placed on an inside wall?
2) It's 30 inches high, which is the height of our current cabinet. If we got new 42" uppers, what do we do to make it look symmetrical with the taller cabs?
