I like the design you are going for. Are you set on a range hood? I d prefer not having that monster in my face and going with a downdraft at the range (they are pretty effective) or nothing at all. I cook a lot and when I remodeled I did away with it. It was a good decision.

Well if I was to be completely honest, although I will make it functional and to code, it will mostly be for visual effect. I like big range hoods. I’ve got some sheets of copper I want to age and make some panels with it and trim it out in hickory to match the kitchen sinks and cabinets. I do have a venting feature now but my jackass kitchen designer and builder ( ahem cough cough, me) made a mistake and it was to late in the process to fix. So the story goes, I found a great deal on a pop up vent that goes behind the oven. So I bought it and than I bought the freestanding oven not realizing the pop up vent was meant for a cooktop. It was to late to return any of these appliances so I rolled with it. This mistake created about a 6” gap between the back of the oven and the vent rendering the vent fairly useless but guests love to push the button and watch it pop up….I covered my mistake with a nice piece of stainless.
My cooktop is electric and I’ve heard before that hoods can steal heat. We have some pendant lighting over the island where the oven is located and when we did a deep cleaning for Christmas some of the lights had a good amount of grease on them.
