Should the hood be larger than the range? - Appliance pros say I need a 48 hood for a 36 range. I think it looks better on my kitchen plan to have them be closer in size. What do you think? Thank you.

48" is probably overkill, but a hood that is slightly wider than the range wouldn't hurt. A hood between 36" and 42" wide should work just fine.

If you have the space, I think a wider hood looks really nice over a 36" range. I think a 42" hood would be fine.

Microwave? - How wide is the space housing the microwave?

I believe it is right around 24" wide. However, if you are creating a similar design for your kitchen, I would recommend buying or researching your microwave first, and customizing the space to fit your microwave.

Love the range niche. How did you do this on an exterior wall? I was told this couldn't be done.

Do you know why someone told you it couldn't be done? The only thing I could think of is noth aving enough space for insulation-- but there are ways around that-- you could use rigid insulation for the whole wall-- or frame this wall with 2x6 or even 2x8 framing to gain the depth needed for standard batt insulation. Hope that helps!

it is sopposed to be on an exterior wall isn't it?

Brand and model of microwave, please.

My apologies-- the owner selected and purchased this appliance directly. As you may know, placing a microwave in an upper location such as this is often tricky due to the depth. I have had success with GE Spacesaver units in the past-- which have a more shallow depth than other units. Hope that helps!

I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like a 36" wide Thermador

Do this door panels open for access on the hood.

Not typically, because there is usually duct work behind the panels. You access the hood for maintenance from underneath the wood hood.
May 22, 2012 at 7:49PM   
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
My mistake. I meant do these panels open to get to the ducting? Our cabinet maker says they need to open for access? I told him I see pictures on Houzz that looks like they are just decorative Am I wrong? Thank You

I love the way the hood looks, what type of exhaust fan did you get? What is the height distance from the top of cabinet from top of stove? Thanks

Space usage on the right side of Microwave - How is the corner near Microwave used? Is there a small nook which opens on the top of MW or accessible from cupboard on the right. I have a small kitchen in which I am planning to have the same layout. Any tips would be welcome

It looks like the area above the microwave is actually an open shelf.

This looks like a similar fixture.

I believe those pulleys do actually work. Great option.

Question: are the countertops marble, granite, or something else? My guess is marble, but I'm hoping it's granite because I like the durability. Anyone know if granite comes in white with the light, smokey greys?

There is a granite called Valley White that is white with streaks of grey and flecks of garnet. Also one that is called River White (or NEW Bianco Romano) that is similar.
