Yes, this is 48" which I recommend for two people working in a kitchen - one at the sink and one at the stove. I would say that 3'-6" is a minimum. You can do 3'-0" but it will be a bit tight. Best, Joanne

vent over cooktop - the arch over the cooktop looks beautiful. What is the vent product used - how big is it - it seems to nestle into the arch perfectly. Thanks.

This is a Broan insert that can be inset into casework. It works great!

This is a lovely example. With its simple yellow flowers and casual bowl of lemons, this kitchen has a bright and fresh springtime look. Note how the foliage is repeated in the archway on the right; accessorized by a few simple items that are well color-coordinated. Now imagine this kitchen with facelift. Replace the yellow blooms with red and fill the fruit bowl with shiny red apples. Now the kitchen has a completely different look and feel. What's more, the cost of changing the look of the room has been negligible. You can see how other inexpensive accessories can help to change the look completely - a bright rug on the wooden floor would add a further splash of color and decorative touch. See more examples below of how small and inexpensive items can quickly change the look of your white kitchen.
