Hood wider than range - OK with upper cabinets?
I am trying to help a friend with choice of a range hood. Setup will be 30" dual fuel range (Heartland Legend, now discontinued, but a real looker). For now this is a retro fit, but range and hood will be reused in full remodel down the line. If the hood is 36" - i.e. 3" wider than the range on either side, is there any issue with having flanking upper cabinets? I have seen SO many pictures of range hoods with upper cabinets where the hood is the same width as the range, but not so many where the hood is wider. We are wondering if there any potential downsides to the use of the wider hood with upper cabinets. Obviously the edges of the uppers would not line up with the edges of the lowers, but I am not seeing that as being a major issue.
The thought is also to do a full height range hood (ie 18") with NO cabinet above the hood.
Any pictures of this type of setup: - full height hood wider than range with upper cabinets - would be much appreciated! Thank you!
