Problem if hood is on tile but chimney on non-tiled wall?
We are doing a retrofit in our kitchen and installing a venting hood to replace the old downdraft range combo. I want to save the tile on my backsplash (perhaps 3-4 feet above the counter height). We are looking at a probably a flat hood like this Zephyr. Is there enough play in the chimney that we could mount the hood itself on top of our tile and the chimney on the regular wall surface? The entire hood would be placed/mounted on the tile, with the top of the hood at the top of the current tile line (we're taking off the protruding top trim piece), and the chimney would start at the point on the wall where the tiling ends. Or, would this cause problems or look goofy since there would be a 1/4" difference in depth between the two surfaces? We have a regular subway tile for our backsplash so it is regular depth and not at all irregular. Thanks much.
