I had posted a thread in August seeking advice on flush mounted hoods. We were considering the Cirrus vent hood for a project with an island range and did not want a hood hanging down obstructing our view out our large picture window. Also, a standard hood would interfere with opening one of our cabinets. So far the feedback is sparse but to the negative side. I was wondering if anyone since had real experience with these types of hoods and/or if there might have been any new products introduced recently which would suffice. Thank you!
