Futuro Futuro Kitchen Range Hoods
The vast majority of wall-mount (a.k.a. "chimney style") range hoods include a height-adjustable, telescoping chimney.

To err on the side of caution, it's better to have a soffit - the chimney can always be adjusted down and/or cut to size. Plus, it may be possible to use only the bottom portion of the chimney, without the top (adjustable) section, thus avoiding the horizontal seam between the 2 parts.

We've attached an example photo of a range hood (Futuro Futuro 36" Master Wall model) with a soffit - and a counterexample emphasizing the chimney seam.

Without a soffit, and with a high ceiling (typically over 9 feet), you would either need to purchase an extension, or route the duct into the wall.

Yes, usually it's the cabinet maker / kitchen builder that creates the soffit; however, a basic soffit (2x4's + sheetrock) can also be built by any competent contractor.

hmmm...i am considering the Benson pendants but am having a difficult time deciding whether to go with polished nickel or satin nickel. Our counter top is going to be antiqued/honed black granite slab and creamy white cabinetry, faucet in peninsula is chrome with a stainless steel microwave, wall oven and cooktop (stainless) with a black refrigerator and dishwasher. Hmmm...will it be polished or satin nickel? Opinions, thoughts greatly appreciated! EEK! 7 weeks til show time!!! Building a home is full of decisions.

Hi. I too am building. My island will be 54"x57". I love the RH Benson pendant and am thinking about 2 over island. What size would you recommend. It is this or the Argentino nickel mini pendant. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
