Moving Out Hood For Backsplash


Hey guys,

Current customer is requesting a backsplash in their kitchen. I've done several but haven't had to move a hood yet. You can see in the picture, they want the tile to the ceiling. I believe it should go only to the top of the cabinets.

Would you take down the hood and do the whole wall, then reinstall on top of the tile?

I would take it down and tile behind it. But I agree it's gonna look bad because of all that space between top of cabinet and ceiling.

The issue with tiling the whole wall will be resetting, and drilling through the tile. Could you install a piece of plywood as the "filler".

Maybe it's me, but the hood looks off center. I wonder if there is a joist, smack dab in the middle.
