Width of cooker hood

Our hob is 70 cm wide and i'm wondering if it means that i need to stick to a 70 cm wide cooker hood? I've seen one i like in 60 cm and one in 90 cm. At a push I can find something i like in 70 cm but was wondering if it was a necessity to stick to the same width as the hood?

Sorry not the most exciting subject but would love to have people's opinions

Ideally go for the 90cm as you need it wider than the hob to draw all steam etc upwards. Too small & it can't do its job properly.

A 60cm (600mm) is standard and a 90cm is overkill really and no more powerful

Steam rises and will generally be drawn into the updraught that any hood creates so go with a standard 60cm type

At least you wont have to accommodate a larger one into any overhead cupboard space !

Good luck
