Determining the best range hood height involves factors such as the type of range hood, the type of cooktop and your kitchen’s layout. If you have an electric cooktop, range hoods should typically be 20–24 inches above the heat source. For gas cooktops, your range hood should be around 24–30 inches above the stove.
Range hoods are a great way to complement your cooktop or range and can help clear the air while you cook. Read this guide to help you determine a range hood height that works well with your kitchen layout and provides you optimal venting while you cook.
