Futuro Futuro Kitchen Range Hoods
The hood is the same width as the range. It's a matched set - 36" Bertazzoni Professional Series 6-burner range + 36" Bertazzoni Professional series range hood.

While several American hood manufacturers (Wolf, Vent-A-Hood, Viking, etc) recommend having a range hood wider than the range, many European manufacturers (Bertazzoni, Faber, Franke, Miele, Futuro Futuro, Gaggenau, etc) match the size of the hood to the size of the range.

With sufficient blower power (600-1000 CFM), ducted installation (not recirculating), and proper installation height, the range hood does not need to be oversized to provide adequate ventilation performance.

Attached are a couple of examples of a range hood (in this case, Futuro Futuro 36" Master Wall series) used over professional-style ranges, matched in width.
