Hello AT,

I'm getting ready to gut renovate my kitchen in my 'built in 1966' co-op apartment and I wanted to know if anyone has ever come across this sort of vent in their kitchen.

The many contractors who have come in have said that I can get taller cabinets over the vent and just cut out a hole in the back, but my super says he doesn't think I can do that.

I do however, need to check with our management company...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

I'm going to check with them, but I wanted to know if anyone's gotten taller cabinets that cover up a kitchen vent like this.

Thanks! Deb
