I'm finding this to be visually cluttered. I have no upper cabinets. Could I add a 30" cabinet here instead?
The barn lights then become an issue. I could order a longer arm for the lights
As mayflowers said, the proportions are off. Not only are the shelves too thick, but the width is out of proportion with the size of the hood. I think removing the upper shelves completely would help with the proportions more. It creates some "air" around the hood so the hood becomes the star it should be. And by eliminating the upper shelves the shelves no longer appear to be too thick.
