Any Tips for Buying a Range Hood for a Kitchen Island?

(Image credit: Reader Ashley)

Q: Hi! If all goes well, I’ll soon be moving into a new home with a kitchen island but no range hood.

I’ve had a hard time trying to navigate finding a quality 36-inch island hood that’s going to meet our needs (it’s a very small house with an open floor plan, so it really needs to do its job) and fit our budget (hopefully no more than a couple thousand dollars, including the contracting labor it’s going to take to get it ducted to vent outdoors). Any tips for me?
