Frank, here's an overview, with pros & cons and photos, of the top 10 most popular countertop materials:
http://www.futurofuturo.com/rangehood-FAQ-top-10-materials-for-kitchen-countertops.php

As you'll see in the photos, there's no set thickness - some countertops are 3-4" thick, depending on the material and design.

I love the nautical feel of the kitchen....Especially the stove area with the beautiful hood. I recently did my kitchen in Harbor Springs Michigan, trying to also capture a water (Lake Michigan) feel!

bill97: you could, potentially, but...

1.) The capture area (filter dimensions) on microhoods is usually much smaller than standalone hoods - even if you change the blower to a bigger one, the bottleneck with the filter will drop the airflow right back down.
2.) Consider the expense of the work + roof enclosure + permits + sealing, etc.
3.) It's still going to look like... well... like a microwave.

Futuro --

I suppose you are right, but given that (1) I will have to put a hole in the roof anyway to put in any kind of outside vent (no convenient wall to go thru) and (2) my wife says we have to have the combination microwave/hood because she needs the space that is lost if we have both a hood and a microwave that takes up a shelf under a cabinet, this should at least be a better venting system than the microwave/hood alone. Also, I was thinking of adding to the 3.5X10 existing ducting in the microwave by leaving an inch or so behind the microwave that would be connected into the 8" duct going to the exterior ventilator. How about that? Of course, the weakness of my plan is that I have the added expense of the exterior ventilator, which does not come cheap (see e.g. the Abbaka Hy-Ex one). Is there a cheaper one around?

Would the 36" hood look bad over the 31" cooktop ?

I would probably stick with the 30" hood. That's what we used over our 30" range. Really wish I could convince the wife to let me do a slide in like you're doing. I've been begging but it seems to fall on deaf ears.

levingss: this type of hood is usually custom-made, by the cabinet maker / kitchen builder, or your local artisan/contractor.

It's typically powered by a "range hood insert", which is a premanufactured range hood without the finished body, that's designed to be installed inside a cabinet or a custom hood like this.

Here's more information and a slideshow with more examples:

Thank you so much. The hood was constructed by the contractor out of wood then my faux artist added a coat of plaster and we then developed at paint design that when applied made it look like stone. The client was very pleased with the results.

cmeckly: that looks like a range hood "insert" encased in a custom-built wood enclosure, to match the cabinets. Such hoods are usually made by the cabinet maker / kitchen builder, but could also be crafted by your local artisan.

In addition, there are some "off-the-shelf" hoods which can be custom-painted or stained to match the cabinetry.

1.) Looks like a Wolf/Viking type hood - there are several manufacturers who make the "angled box" style hoods.

2.) Considering it's on an outside wall, it would be a crime NOT to duct it out :)

There are many advantages of ducted range hoods vs ductless - better performance, lower noise, no need to change the charcoal filters on a regular basis. More info: http://www.futurofuturo.com/rangehood-FAQ-10-reasons-to-have-a-range-hood.php

Thank you very much for your response! I'll definitely check our wolf/viking for options.

The hood that I need is for a condominium apartment building. The present range hood is not ducted to the exterior, and I am not allowed to renovate the exterior of the building to add an exhaust penetration. So, in this instance, I am stuck with a recirculating type of hood. I am also restricted with the height clearance (I only have 7'-0" cleat to the u/s of a bulkhead).

Any other suggestions would be most appreciated.

Here's one example: Futuro Futuro "Plane" island range hood, available in 36" and 48" widths.

It's the same width, 48" from the looks of it. Depth-wise, impossible to tell from this angle, but many of the "box-style" undercabinet hoods are available in 24" - 27" depth.

Please note that with a hood that's as deep as the range, the probability of hitting one's head on it increases - which makes it necessary to place the hood higher (36" above the range at minimum) - which reduces performance - which partially defeats the purpose of having a deep range hood in the 1st place...

...this is why many European-style hoods (such as our Italian models) are made in the 18" - 20" depth range, so they can be installed in the area of maximum efficiency, without the hazard of intersecting with the chef's forehead.

The range looks like a standard 36" wide unit. The hood is larger, probably partially to accommodate the window. As far as whether it will "work" with a particular ceiling height - when it comes to custom hoods, it's up to your particular design, your house construction, and your taste.

Great article with many interesting points!

We'd like to add a "flip side" to the concept of using a vaulted/slanted ceiling in the kitchen.

If the cooktop/range is going to be situated on the island/peninsula, a slanted ceiling will make it more difficult to install the ventilation hood. Typically, a soffit box will need to be built to provide a level mounting surface for the hood - an additional expense, hassle, and a design challenge.

Place the alarm where you have for the inspection and then move it. It truly solves the problem.

Safety regulations are not intended to make your life as difficult as possible, nor are inspectors. These both ensure that things have been done in a safe manner to keep you and your family safe. Having properly installed and working smoke alarms cuts your risk of dying in a home fire by 50%! If you install the alarm properly, then move it for convenience sake, you will be directly responsible for any fire related injuries or deaths in your home. Why? Because chances are you will put it in the wrong spot and it won't work properly. You typically have less than 3 min to get out of your house once you hear an alarm, sometimes much much less than that.

For this discussion on high ceilings, the National Fire Protection Association states that "for ceilings that are pitched, install the alarm within 3 feet of the peak but not within the apex of the peak (four inches down from the peak)". Smoke alarms should also be 10' from any cooking area to avoid false alarms and dirtying of the sensors. Many states have special regulations that should be checked as well. If you are having trouble picking the right placement, contact your local fire department. They would much rather come out and discuss this with you now than to have to carry your body out in a fire.

You should also be aware that there are two kinds of smoke alarms: ionization and photoelectric. They detect different types of fires. As Stryker said, you will get smoke at different levels but it isn't the same smoke. A fire expert can help with the smoke pathways as well, as those depend on the temperature, draft & stagnation zones, and the type of smoke. Those pathways are the reasons for the regulations.

I would suggest a first start is look here: http://www.nfpa.org/safety-information/for-consumers/fire-and-safety-equipment/smoke-alarms/installing-and-maintaining-smoke-alarms

Tom Borsellino: all of our island hoods are height-adjustable. The Europe model can accommodate ceiling heights of 7.5' to 9.5' feet "out-of-the-box"; taller or shorter ceilings can be accommodated with some modifications.
