Wolf rangetop - how to tile backsplash

phiwwyOctober 5, 2012

Hi - in thinking about my backsplash, I'm now wondering how the heck do I coordinate it with my range top? In the rear of the range top, there is a part about 3/4" that sticks up, has holes like for venting. if i tile down to it, it will cover the holes.

Anyone have a Wolf range top (against a wall) and can you tell me - do i need to pull out the rangetop and tile behind it?

Admittedly, I have not read the manual yet :-(

Mines a range not a range top but should be the same I think. Here's a picture for you. One row of subway tile slightly below the island trim.

Just completed our kitchen with wolf gas range. Tiled first, range installed after, in front of tile

Most pro style range tops require that the tile extend below the counter by about 6". So, yes, counter first, install tile, and then range top last.
