Is there a rule in anyone's local code for how close a return filter grille can be to a kitchen?
With todays "open" floor plans ,we are required to be 10' from thr kitchen exhaust fan.

there should be a return in every room but the bathrooms. As far as the kitchen, try to set up a return as far from the stove and burners as possible. The more returns throughout the house, the better the system will work.

The idea for disallowing returns in batrooms, I think, is obvious: smell.
The same can be said for kitchens and are not allowed by IMC code. But like the man said; when the floor plan is open your at the mercy of the architect, uo gotta put em
