What gets matched - range or hood?
I am completely stuck on what to put behind my range and I need some help! The range is 30" and the hood 36" and I can't decide if the stainless sheet I want to put back there should match range or hood. There are no cabinets on either side to limit anything. The hood is pretty massive (36"x24") for the small kitchen and I am afraid if I match its width it will be even more of a hulking mass. On the other hand, if I match the range's width, will that look weird? Here's a couple of photos to put it in context. Yes, I STILL have the painted plywood countertops, but they're holding up so well it's hard to pull the trigger...
My other choice would be to use this tile (http://www.houzz.com/photos/31123/Schwartz-and-Architecture-contemporary-kitchen-san-francisco) and tile the whole wall, but I still wouldn't know where to stop and the thought of cleaning grout with the kind of cooking we do :-(
