Need lots of help-kitchen remodel


If you look at the pics, there is a plastic ceiling tile that I want to remove. Also, there is a ventilation system that goes directly outside and would be exposed if I removed the tiles. So how do I go about that. Also, you can see the holes in the walls above the tiles that are patched up with wires coming from there. What would be in there and would I be able to patch and paint that? Need help here lol

Remove what you want to remove.
I'd have an electrician handle the wiring as it needs to be identified and removed or rerouted properly. It sounds like you have no experience with the wiring aspect of the job.
Once that happens you can patch the holes.

Ok. So I patch the duct hole and then just buy a ductless range hold?

You may need to open up that drywall in order to route the exhaust duct behind it---

If that is not an option due to obstructions--a soffit could be built to hide the ducting.

Is there a 2nd floor above or attic space?

also you can get some pretty nice looking drop ceiling panels these days. You might have to add some track or reposition some...just a thought.

I did a lot of work in commercial kitchens with drop-ceilings and panels, other than lighting, were 5/8" sheetrock. If you consider doing this, don't forget the weight. A 2'x4' panel of 5/8" sheetrock weighs 15-20 pounds, so make darn sure the grid is well supported. A coat or two of paint (fully dry) appropriate for a kitchen environment would ease future cleaning.

To others reading; do not use a bath fan with plastic coated FLEX duct (3"-4" rather than 6-7" smooth metal pipe or rectangular metal duct) in a kitchen for grease....

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?

Oh, I was just wanting to get the original height of the ceiling. There is an attic where I would be able to install duct work and the recessed lights
