To install a cabinet above the cook top, make sure the clearance is at least twenty four inches for a fireproof surface, thirty inches for an unprotected surface. Most vent hoods state their recommended range in their specifications. Pay close attention to the suggestions on the hood as well as the specifications on your cook top. You do not want to end up with a low power hood mounted at its lowest recommended height over a high output cook top. Also consider the type of pans you want to be able to use. More height allows more versatility with that.
