Venting a range hood - options??

10 years ago

Hello all, new to the forum! We're building a new home, hence - new kitchen.

Our design has our 48" professional range on an exterior wall facing the front of our house - it's my big indulgence. The plan was for a custom vented hood above it.

Only after the design was in place and the build was well underway did I learn that a large range hood like that will require a 10" diameter duct to vent it. The exterior is, as I said, the front of my house, near the entrance. The idea of that *huge* ugly duct vent on the facade of my home is awful!

Looking for options - we can't move the range. Can it be vented through the above room (master bedroom) and out the roof above? Is this safe? Joists run the wrong way to get to another exterior wall, unfortunately. Any other thoughts? Different sized ducts that might work? Help!
