    We are putting the induction hob on the island and looking at ceiling mounted extractor fan.

    Has anyone fitted one flush to the ceiling ie the workings fit between the joists so you don't have to create a box or lower whole ceiling?

    Thanks

    The last one I did, I had to counterbatten ceiling by 90mm. That was despite the customer thought I coild drill 125mm holes through his joists!

    You can only do in between joists if you are going in line with the joists and you can exit the wall at that joist gap position.

    Im not sure if you fit the motor box in between the joists though.

    Why not construct a cloud with led tape lighting around the perimeter.

    We have been thinking of an led lit cloud, but it is going in a quadrant of a kitchen extension which has a cross of steel beams to open up the room, so thought more roof furniture might make it look busy.
    Would be good to have them as Hue strips "Alexa, start the fans please", well cool for me, maybe not my wife :)

    The extra height would render it pretty useless.
