I'm looking to buy a range hood for our stove. The hood will be externally vented through the roof (1 story house) since it's on an interior wall. It seems that most of the wall mounted chimney units assume that the range itself is flush or almost flush to the wall, since they have a depth of around 18".
We have a free standing stove, (i.e., not built into the cabinets) with no cabinetry on the wall the stove is against and if I measure from the wall to the back of the back burners, it's about 10", so 18" from the wall will not really cover the full stove surface, and won't cover half of the front two burners.
Does this mean that I need to install an island model instead of a wall mounted model hood? Or is it possible/desirable to add some sort of spacing so that the wall mounted unit hangs out further?
