I recently installed kitchen from IKEA. My excitement ended when I saw that the vent hood is off-center to the cooktop counter. I confronted the installer from IKEA about that, and he said I can either reduce the size of the vent or cut a vent to tie to the existing and patch whatever is exposed. When I forwarded this message to my contractor, he disagreed and thinks I should reconfigure the cabinets in a way to shift the cooktop countertop to the right. My issue with that option is that IKEA doesn’t have a smaller-sized spice cabinet that I can squeeze in to fill up the space from reconfiguring the base cabinets, and I don’t want to make changes to the layout. So the only option is to fiddle with the existing vent.
Any other ideas or suggestions?
