Suggest a vent hood option for our new kitchen

I am hoping to get good recommendation for a range hood on our remodel in progress.

We will install a 36" Stainless steel induction FP range. We are not gourmet chefs, but do want to vent the occasional pan-seared fish and oven-roasted brussel sprouts. Otherwise, we are just frying eggs and bacon.

The kitchen ceiling is 10 feet, and the venting will be to/through the ceiling/roof.

Kitchen aesthetic will be "Mediterranean minimalist" (I think I made that up) and I'm currently thinking warm white upper cabinets with wood on lower. With 10 foot ceilings, we will probably have 42" uppers, so the vent hood design, whatever we do, will be taller.

I want to have sufficient venting without overkill and ideally without too much noise.

The options I've been mulling over are:

a) Stainless steel

b) Tapered vent hood (to be covered with venetian plaster and wood trim) with insert thing

c) Under cabinet ss hood

I am not a designer so your advice about what would be both aesthetically pleasing AND most economical is greatly.
