I’ve just “googled” the price of hoods. A cheap cheerful conventional one cost £60.
Big old “island hoods” were going for over £2800. (my car’s not worth that much)!
Theses prices don’t include the hood.
Fit a conventional hood, which doesn’t extract but just circulates. There’s even a handy power supply above a nearby wall cabinet.
A sparks will charge for half a day ………£120.00
If there is no electrical supply, he will have to find cables in the room above, (so the carpet and boards will have to be disturbed), drop them down, fit a socket and have it plastered up.
This job will take 2 tradesmen a day plus their materials………£380.00
If the hood is to extract the fumes through the wall it’s fitted on, add…….£95.00
To fit a boxed in duct at ceiling height, add………£190.00

Price Guide and Information Sheet on the Cost of Fitting an Extractor Hood/Chimney
I used to have one with a great swathe of flowing green tinted glass billowing out all around it. What a load of codswallop. There was a vertical tube disappearing up to the ceiling but all it ever did was recycle the smell of my bacon sandwich. It didn’t go anywhere, other than through a charcoal filter which was about as much use as a cardboard khazi..
So, if you’re getting one fitted, do it properly, get the smell of your “dauphinoise a la grec” out of the house a bit sharpish and drive all the poor people crazy.
Obviously this isn’t always easy. You need an outside wall for a start and you don’t want to fit ducting if it makes you kitchen look like the inside of a church organ.
