How to install Kaboodle cupboard and undermount rangehood?

Hey all,

 

Love the forums here, great, helpful reads.

 

Was wondering if anyone out in the ether has experience of installing a 60cm undermount or fixed range hood into a kaboodle?

 

kaboodle.cabinets seems quite shallow at circa 283mm and most rangehoods are deeper than that. Trying to one that would fit our current 283mm cabinet.

 

Does Bunnings or anywhere have a rangehoods that would fit?

 

Thanks

 

Tim

Re: kaboodle cupboard + undermount rangehood

Hi @timln,

 

The majority of slideout rangehoods will fit in 283mm internal and 300mm external deep cabinetry. It appears the Bellini 60cm White Slideout Rangehood, BLANCO Slideout Rangehood, Bellini 60cm Stainless Steel Recirculating Slideout Rangehood, Bellini 60cm Stainless Steel Slideout Retractable Rangehood would fit. For slimline rangehoods there shouldn't be an issue either. Their front protrudes out past the cabinetry, but they mount fine to the underside. Both the Bellini 60cm Stainless Steel Slimline Rangehood and Bellini 60cm White Slimline Rangehood will work.

 

I believe I'm running into the same issue you've experienced with undermount rangehoods. Our units Bellini 52cm Undermount Rangehood or even the Everdure 52cm Stainless Steel Undermount Rangehood specify that they need a minimum inside depth of 384mm. Since you have less than that depth, you might need to consider the slimline or pullout varieties.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Re: How to install Kaboodle cupboard and undermount rangehood?

Hello @timln 

 

My apologies for the late reply. I was rolling the problem in my head when it occurred to me that you can still make it work, but you will have to build a custom-sized range hood cabinet. I suggest retaining the standard outside dimensions of a Kaboodle 600mm Rangehood Cabinet but making it 345mm deep. The reason for this is that you can place 70 x 45 untreated timber behind the regular cabinets and still have all the wall cabinets lined up to the range hood cabinet. Plus you can still use standard range hood doors for the set.

 

I've placed a sample sketch below of how you can put it together. Please have a look and tell me what you think. 

 

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Hey Eric

 

Thank you very much for taking the time to work through this, much appreciated.

 

We looked at a few options similar to what you proposed but recently ended up swapping out the undermount and getting a pull out one instead (from Bunnings!), Made life and time much easier on our budget.

 

Appreciate your help!

Hi @timln

 

Thanks for posting that update about your range hood. Are you doing just this part or has the rest of your kitchen been renovated? If it has,  would it be possible for you to post a photo once you've finished your renovation? I'm sure our members would be keen to see your project.

 

If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know.
