    Kitchen stores

    Anyone know of a decent kitchen store in Des Moines that sells/installs range hoods?

    Re: Kitchen stores

    While we're on the subject, I have a few questions.

    We're getting a new gas stove (replacing electric). I plan on removing the microwave pictured and possibly the cabinets if I have to to install a range hood.

    Should I have an outside vent connected to the hood or a recirculating one?

    While I am not a kitchen builder, I can tell you that with a recirculating hood and a bacon fire, the fire alarm will in fact go off, no matter what.

    Re: Kitchen stores

    my wife does kitchen design for a living, but she is at work, so i can't answer the question exactly. However i would assume you would want an outside vent ran if you want a decent hood. probably need to call an HVC guy to find out how much work though.

    Re: Kitchen stores

    Wanted to give a little feedback. Went to a few local stores last week but didn't really find anything that we liked when it came to gas stoves. We heard about a place over in eastern Iowa called the Appliance Barn. Sounds pretty cheesy but they carry the top products and I couldn't believe the customer service they provided. I can honestly say that it may have been my best customer service experience ever. Took over an hour of the guys time but he answered every question and pointed out the good/bad points about everything. It's pretty sad that you have to drive two hours to find quality but once it was complete I was happy we did.
