Recirculating range hoods are a waste of time

Wish i had the option of installing a vented model. I does have to open up the windows by me to air out the house...especially if we curry or fry stuff.

My suggestion: if u can...install a vented model.

recirculating ones help if it has the charcoal which adsorbs the fumes. needs to be changed and if not changed then one may think it's a waste of time.

you can go thru the ceiling and across thru the nearest external wall above the ceiling (or straight up thru the roof with a chinese hat!)

Only if it's a flat house.
If there is a beam he cannot run that size vent through the beam without weakening the structure.
Verticall pipes in the center of a house really doesn't look that great but it's the most economical approach to the problem.

I should have mentioned that it is a flat house.
I was thinking of going through the ceiling and venting out through an external wall. My only concern was the pipe would show coming back out of the ceiling to vent at the external wall. I'm really trying to avoid cutting the roof, so I may have to do the above even though I don't like how it would look.
If the charcoal is as effective I could use it but from the comments above it doesn't look that way.

Yes you will eventually reach a ring beam.
Hopefully you can go above it into a gable or some sort of space between the ring beam and the roof rather than go back below the ceiling again.
Also it's not advisable to cut a hole in your roof to stick a pipe in it from the the middle of your house. Your just begging for trouble during the rainy season.
Use the underground vent pipe if you want to hide everything and still have a hassle free ventilation system.

Underground venting sounds ideal but it's going to be the most intrusive option.

Just need a good builder.
You won't even know what happened when it's done.
Not that costly either but budget is always a concern.

2. Bought a plane ticket to Florida
3. Visited IKEA Sunrise in Fort Lauderdale
4. Had a kitchen pro at IKEA fine tune the design and what I needed for my kitchen
5. Bought the kitchen (in pieces of course).
6. Shipped it to Trinidad
7. Assembled it myself.

Points to consider:
My kitchen is 18 x 14
I got: Double oven cabinets, Pantry (with pull out drawers) , Island with sink Cabinet above the fridge, Cabinets with glass, 4 horizontal cabinets with glass, all doors and drawers soft close, spice arrangers, cutlery arrangers...the full works for the kitchen all for the cost of $3820USD.

That cost me a lot less including the plane ticket and hotel accommodation if a local builder or supplier were doing everything on that list (most of them quoted me over 80K TTD).


My advice to you is do your research and buy/build your kitchen. And yes, IKEA makes top quality stuff cause everyone who enters my home is amazed at how it looks and the quality if the workmanship. They're all shocked when I tell them that I did it myself (along with a friend).


Any pics to share ????

Sea freight. IKEA stuff comes packed very efficiently.

I have to check to see if IKEA counters are priced better than buying the same quartz locally.

A pallet sized D container box from Laparkan is about TT$2500 to ship from Fort Lauderdale to Pt Lisas. it should fit an entire kitchen worth of IKEA cabinets excluding the counter but including the sink and fittings.

Exquisite granite creations can supply and install quartz from as low as $250.00 per square foot material and labour.

If "YOU" have your own material, they will only charge you a labour price to install it.
An 8'x26" slab is most likely to be a pre fab slab(ready make with a bullnose edge) , so it will jus be to cut and install. They normally charge $700.00 per slab for a basic installation, anything additional such as cutting of sinks or making bullnose edges will be an additional cost.
When charged by the square foot your getting the bigger sheets which comes 121"x55" and that material is customized to your cabinets.
So in instances where you have wide islands or curves and angles in your cabinets this material is the better n neater finish.

Oh. Most people just buy a 4” ducting kit, same one you use for a clothes dryer. M&M on Cipero St sells the adapter plate to go from a range hood to the 4” duct and then you just make a hole in your wall and vent it out. The kit comes with a vent flap too.
