Re: How to Handle This Gap Behind Cooktop?


You stated having installed a cooktop but the picture shows a range which is quite different. Is the back of the range hitting something sticking out from the wall?
A sheet metal shop can make a flange to fill the gap using stainless plate if you are stuck with that gap but I would look at fixing the problem at the source.

It's not a range, it's a cooktop. A range has an oven. This does not. The cooktop isn't hitting anything in back; the front control panel sits in front of the cabinet face (by design) which is what is restricting it from being pushed further back.

Tile to that,
This is what I ended up doing. As I mentioned, I had a piece of the quartz countertops left over because the countertop guys miss-measured one section. I busted out the wet saw last weekend and cut it up, and got it installed. Happy with how it came out. I cut up some pieces to fill the sides too, but once I got the shelf installed a decided not to bother with those.
