My kitchen will be vaulted like this one & will have an island cooktop & stove. I DO NOT want an exhaust hood of any kind. Is an exhaust fan like the one in the photo truly a viable alternative?

Futuro Futuro Kitchen Range Hoods
@Randys Construction: once you have selected the gas range you'd like to use, please feel free to take a look at our website (, or give us a shout (phone or E-mail), and we can provide advice on choosing the range hood.

@bubblyjock: thank you for your kind compliments! You're absolutely right about how Houzz should work - this is the age of communication, companies must be engaged with the market, and be aware of their potential customers' concerns and wishes.

Now, on to your question about sloped/vaulted ceilings...

You will not find an "off-the-shelf" island range hood that can accommodate any ceiling other than perfectly flat & level. Unless you're going to have a metal fabricator make a custom chimney for you (time & $$$), this issue would need to be solved not at the hood, but at the ceiling.

To accommodate a sloped/cathedral ceiling, simply build a soffit. The soffit only needs to be large enough to accommodate the vertical chimney of the hood (13" x 10.5" on most of our models), but it can be made bigger for visual effect, or to incorporate lighting or other design features. An example of a large soffit is attached below.

A soffit is very easy to build, it typically involves only beams, sheetrock, and paint - and it's much cheaper than a custom chimney. Plus, it can provide space for the ducting, as well as additional lighting or decorative accents.

Here's a page on our website that provides some examples of different types of soffit boxes:

Wow - that was quick: thank you! Your explanation and illustration make perfect sense. I'll talk to the contractor, but given what you say it's probably more sensible to go back to my Plan A, and put the range against the wall, as I don't want a bulky soffit filling the space overhead, and blocking natural light.

I saw on your website that you ship to Canada: awesome - so many distributors won't ship to the Great White North, sadly.
