Tiled range hood

Hello, My house is in the late planning stages.
I would like a tiled range hood. I will have a regular kind of stove, not professional.
My husband will be building the cabinets, all woodwork really. He isn't sure how a tiled range hood is made, claims to have never seen one, even though I showed him one in a showroom 2 weeks ago, he has no memory of this or of me ever showing any interest in the whole subject of range hoods. <g>
Has anyone on the board done a project like this? I see where you can buy special inserts to go in a custom hood but they seem awful high. Can you buy a cheaper hood and just insert it into the wood box. I assume you tile the hood after it is up?
Really I don't know even step one with this and can see it getting cut from my wish list as too big a pain. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Celin, Welcome...
Are you planning on tiling the interior or the exterior of the range hood ??

Ive never seen one.But, i sure would like too I would imagine there would be a bit of engineering involved.Perhaps a large CFM Fan built into framing and a stainless vent cover which would go on after tiling.The weight is a factor and this i would think would need support from the wall framing itself besides the cabinet above if there will be one.Electrical lighting should also be considered.I am sure it could be done,ive just never seen one.

Anyone else???

The tile will be on the outside of the hood.
There is no upper cabinet involved. I looked at the Braun web site, they have a fan and light kit to go inside, expensive, but they have one. That is what made me think of hiding a cheaper hood inside, but I don't know.
I HAVE seen them in magazines, I HAVE, I HAVE...plus there WAS one at the tile store but of course it had no insides and no one there knew anything about it.
Thanks for putting some thought into this.

Celin,

I've done several in custom homes, but unfortunately I didn't take pictures. All of them were made from wood with custom sheetmetal work on the inside. The exhaust fans are roof-mounted. Very quiet. Very expensive, too, as you know.

I don't know of any ready-made insert. That's not saying there isn't one out there.

Celin here is a pic of one we did with a 6x6 hand painted tile from Portugal. It was built to allow a stock Stainless vent hood to fit inside. Not sure of the brand but I can find out if you need

Thanks so much Cisco for posting those photos.
Hope is reborn.
If you can find out the brand and model number of the hood that was inserted that would be great. I know lots of the metal hoods have the controls on top. They wouldn't be useable, so knowing what one worked with that shape hood would help alot. That is a great looking tile job. I know those angles on the sides were tricky!! Just beautiful. I like the shape of that hood very much and would be more than happy with a similar one.
Again, thanks everyone for all the help. I wish I could return the favor. If anyone needs to know about glass, let me know.

How about this?

Take your run-of-the-mill cheapo hoods, attach furring strips to the outside of the sheetmetal with screws from the inside. Add CBU to the strips with screws (short ones) then tile.


As far as the controls, move them to a wall.

Nice looking work Cisco.
What's with that lonely spigot in the middle of the wall?

The lonely spigot is going to be a wall mounted faucet. Its the new rage in high end kitchens. It has a jointed arm that you can swing out over a pot on the stove and fill it with water.

something like this
