Looking for advice on height of island vent hood.

9 years ago

I'm new to these forums and in the middle of a kitchen Reno. The last minute details and decisions are starting to wear on me! :-)

So we will have a gas cooktop in our island. My kitchen hasn't had ventilation before and needs it! I'm trying to understand how high to install the vent hood. Does it make sense that according to manufacturer specs, it would be around eye level? I guess I'm looking for input from someone who cooks in a similar setup. Is it in the way? I assumed it would be over my head (and that's what I get for assuming). I'm 5'8".

Thanks for any advice you can offer. Trying hard not to screw this up near the end!
