How to handle gap when installing range hood duct over tile backsplash


I plan to install a range hood over a tile backsplash. The backsplash runs part way up the wall. When running the range hood duct over the tile how do I handle the transition where the tile ends since the tile sits 1/4" or so off the wall?

Here's an example picture of the situation, but it's not clear how they handle the transition.

Re: How to handle gap when installing range hood duct over tile backsplash


Here's a really basic drawing that illustrates the problem from a side view. You can see the off the wall on the lower half. So if we install the duct over the tile there will be a gap on the upper half between the duct and the wall.

The photo you posted shows it out far enough to clear the crown, are you sure yours will be against the wall.

Perhaps some kind of trim on the wall that shows on both sides.

The hood in the image I posted initially may not have been flush against the tile... it's hard to tell. Here's another install that definitely looks flush again the tile. Again, it's hard to tell how the transition between the tile and wall is handled.

do you have the hood physically on hand now ??
if the gap is really going to be an issue, you could use the matching
stainless trim that Neal shows or a 1/4 round painted to match the wall.
or option B: just tile up to the lower edge of the exhaust fan.
if the tile is already there, remove it and do the patching accordingly.

your kitchen = your call.
The hood is not on hand yet. The stainless trim idea might be our best bet. I'm really curious how others, such as in this picture, pull this off though. If stainless trim is used to fill the gap, I'd expect to see a line that I don't see.

Re: How to handle gap when installing range hood duct over tile backsplash


I would check that the duct on the proposed hood is actually flush with the back of the hood before even worrying about it. If it's like the one in the first pic, it's not flush, so no problem. Even so, what's wrong with part of the duct being a quarter inch off the wall?
