Just wondered whether anyone has tried one of these type of suspended decorative extractors elica.com/GB-en/products/hoods/diva ? They look like a good solution for an island hob - although I haven't looked at the price yet!
The key driver for me changing my kitchen is that the moronic developers put the cooker hood in the wrong place. I can't use the island worktop or hob without banging my head. I'm only 5'7". It drives me insane.
