Range hood or backsplash

I'm going to install a range hood and tile a backsplash. Which should I do first?

MY ANSWER: Tile the backsplash first. The less obstacles in your way when tiling, the better.

However, if the range hood is a wooden one that matches your cabinets - and you're not sure exactly where to stop tiling - then install the hood first.

If you need tips on backsplash tiling, see How to Tile a Backsplash.

Thinking of remodeling?

Keep a notebook or scrapbook of notes, clippings and ideas.

Kitchen magazines are expensive - look through them in the grocery checkout line. If you see pix of a kitchen you really like, buy that magazine.

Stop in at home centers and pick up any free cabinet manufacturers' catalogs.
