Thank you, this helps. Really want to build this into my new kitchen (currently framing) but want to make sure it is a safe idea. Thank you again for your kind response.

Thank you for responding Margie. The range hood is a standard, made for corners. Rather our crews framed the decorative surround to hold it. The Dacor 6 burner range is 48 inches wide. Here are the specs so you can take a look for yourself: http://www.dacor.com/Our-Products/Ranges/Discovery-48-Inch-Dual-Fuel-Range.aspx.

Thank you for your interest in our Victoria Garden Mews project. The edge of the marble is an ogee edge detail. It's actually created with two layers of marble. The top layer of marble has a step cut into it and a second layer of marble is glued on to create the bottom. Google "ogee edge detail" or "ogee detail" and you will see how something like this is created. I hope that helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Great Ways to Use Kitchen Corners
Install a range. This is not a move for everyone, as it can take up extra room. What's great about it is the way it can work within the work triangle, that it enlivens a corner and that it opens up the opportunity to showcase a special high backsplash.As this look becomes more popular in the U.S., more corner-ready hood vents and ranges are making their way over from other countries, where it's already an established look.
