Hello all, we are having a large window in the kitchen so I am confused in placing chimney and hob. please help me and it's a small kitchen so need some space utilization tips too!
Shravani, Chimney on the window idea has its own challenges. First is how to hang the chimney while still keeping the window shutters operable. For daily usage the suction of the chimney is affected if the window is open.
If your window is at sufficient height from the hob then it will be better to skip the chimney and use your window for ventilation but much of it depends on the wind flow.
Please share the floor plan for further comments.

Hi Shravani! I am facing same problem in my kitchen. Please let me know what do you decide. Will help me in deciding.
Don't buy a chimney. Buy a good exhaust fan and fix it in the space provided above the window. Problem solved.
Hello there, you have got ample space between walls which are void of top storage units. Try installing the hob near the microwave and use the existing duct to cover the chimney vent.
The only civil work involved is drilling a hole for the chimney in the wall area below lintel beam near the window. The only interior work added is an extra small top unit for covering the chimney .
You could also install an exhaust fan into the window directly. It is more powerful and cheaper than a chimney and well suited for Indian Kitchens.
