If there is already a cabinet above where you want your range to be located then your solution is to either have a carpenter shorten the cabinet or replace it with a shorter cabinet that will give more breathing space to the range underneath it. Wiring is a consideration as well. A ductless range hood would require that you shorten the cabinet and do the required wiring before you install your range. Ducted kitchen range hoods are different and require an opening in the cabinet's bottom to accommodate the ducting. Another hole will be needed for the exhaust.
Kitchen range hoods play an important part within the cooking process. They need to effectively remove bad cooking odors from the cooking and to also clean or extract the steam outside of the home. Having a well maintained range hood in the kitchen means that your home will be free from bad odors, and a cleaner more hygienic kitchen.
If you cook top is against the kitchen wall and surrounded by kitchen cabinets, you will want to opt for a wall mounted range hood. These units fix directly to the wall, and above the cook top. If your stove has been installed into a center kitchen unit, then your best option is to buy an island range hood. These hoods are fixed to the ceiling and therefore require a beam within the ceiling to attach to. Whether you choose a wall mounted or island model, both can be bought as a vented or ventless unit.
